SBS Reveals New 'Family' Line-up

The final line-up for the second season of the popular show "Family Outing" (SBS) has been revealed.

The first season garnered fans with stars including top comedian and host Yoo Jae-suk and singers Lee Hyori and Yoon Jong-shin.

The second season brings together another interesting cast, including actor and host Kim Won-hee, actor Yoon Sang-hyun, comedians Ji Sang-ryul and Shin Bong-sun, Yoona from the popular girl group Girls' Generation and boy band 2PM's Ok Taecyeon, along with a new format. Details of the upgraded format have not been confirmed yet.

The first season wraps up next month, while shooting for the second season will start in late January.

Meanwhile, fans of the program have been expressing their opinions on the shake-up on the program's Web page, with some supporting the new format and hosts, and others arguing that they should scrap the second season and come up with a new show.

"Just because (SBS) decided to cast popular members from top idol groups does not mean the show will get high ratings", a netizen wrote on the Web site.

"Family Outing" is competing with entertainment shows such as "One Night, Two Days" on KBS and "Infinity Challenge" on MBC.

Despite worries and criticism, the finishing touches on the new season seem to be underway, and fans are expecting a better show this year.

"Family Outing" started in June 2008, taking the hosts to the countryside to experience rural life. The cast would send a household on a luxurious trip, while they stayed in the house doing chores and making their own meals. When the show's popularity soared, top stars ― including actress Ha Ji-won, pop group SS501 member Kim Hyun-joong and actor Daniel Henney ― were invited to join the original members.
