Come Back Home – Concept
The concept of Come Back Home is quite simple, yet something the audience will relate to immensely. The show is set in an outdoor concept. The guests in each episode – tentatively 2, will travel back to the same neighbourhoods and vicinities of Seoul, where they first started their journey. Certain people are from within Seoul while others travelled from across the country, and even abroad, to fulfil their dreams. The concept of the show will take these people back to those parts of Seoul where young people dream every day to become a part of the Hallyu revolution. The celebrity guests will also meet these young people who are manifesting their dreams in the same lanes of Seoul where they once did. The show will also see them inspiring these young kids and cheering them on their journey.
Come Back Home will be a boon for several young people who go to the cosmopolitan South Korean capital to become a part of the country’s entertainment industry. This is the same industry that is known all across the world for being notoriously strict on rookies. This reality show will help those aspiring youngsters relate to the people who inspire them and learn from their experiences. Hearing mega superstars talk about their struggles is always motivating. Come Back Home will also help these stars connect better with their fans as they tell their stories of the beautiful city of Seoul.

Come Back Home Episode 1 – Recap
In the first episode of Come Back Home on April 3, 2021, the guests were the members of one of the most famous K-Pop girl groups of all time. They were Hwasa and Wheein of MAMAMOO. They reminisced mainly about their early days as a k-pop idol trainee when they lived together in a rooftop house in Seoul. Throughout the episode, they also spoke fondly of all the problems they faced and overcame together to get where they are today.
Hwasa and Wheein also meet the people who live in the home now. They ask them about their dreams and ambitions in life. They earnestly motivate them to work hard towards their dream and believe in themselves. It indeed is heartwarming to witness the conversation as it takes place – it is honest, raw, and unfiltered. The second episode is expected to star Kim Jong Min as a guest and follow his journey in a lesser-known Seoul neighbourhood.
