Korean idol group 2PM's Ok Taecyeon has become the latest celebrity to join the new cast of variety show "Family Outing", according to one of the show's producers on Friday.

"Ok Taecyeon has decided to appear on the second season of 'Family Outing'" said SBS entertainment producer Nam Seung-yong in a phone call with Asia Economic Daily. He added that they are "planning to cast one or two more people" but added that it is "too early to say who they will be".

Producers of "Family Outing" have been recruiting new members for the show with the entire original cast from the first season -- including main hosts Yoo Jae-suk and singer Lee Hyori -- set to leave the show after shooting the final episode next week.

So far, second season cast includes 2PM's Ok Taecyeon, Girls' Generation member Yoona, actress and show host Kim Won-hee, comedians Ji Sang-ryul and Shin Bong-sun and actor Yoon Sang-hyun.

The "reality-based" variety show, which premiered in June 2008, came under scrutiny early last year when one of the scripts was leaked on the Internet. Fans were outraged to learn that show was not "real' and ratings had been declining ever since.

The second season is scheduled to air around late February or early March.
