In 2016, after working on Reply 1988, Ryu Jun Yeol, Ahn Jae Hong, Go Kyung Pyo, and Park Bo Gum were part of the travel reality show Youth Over Flowers In Africa! In the show, the boys "set off to Namibia, a country which is located in the southwest of Africa, in search of the beautiful Victoria Falls."
The cast members, except for Bo Gum who was in Korea at that time, were actually "kidnapped" by the Youth Over Flowers production crew during their vacation in Phuket, Thailand.
Below is the actual footage of the surprise trip announcement. The Reply 1988 moms even make a special appearance!
Here's Bo Gum and Jun Yeol sledding on some sand:
Here's the gang going bungee jumping:
Here's Bo Gum crying (!!!) after revealing that he doesn't have a formal photo with his family:
The cast stayed in Africa for more than a week, talked about what they did prior to their roles in Reply 1988, and shared emotional and tearful conversations with each other. At one point, Bo Gum was even pulled over by the police after a misunderstanding with a traffic sign! WILD BBs. You can find more clips of the boys on the TVN Entertainment official YouTube channel.
Youth Over Flowers, which premiered in 2014, also has editions set in Peru, Laos, Iceland, and Australia.
