As they loosen up and forget the cameras, insights are revealed such as how they hooked up as a fast friends and what they’d like to do next in their careers.

What is In the Soop: Friendcation Season 1 about?

Presented by Disney+, the 4-part mini-series delivers a cast of heavy-hitting K-stars including Choi Woo-shik (Parasite, Our Beloved Summer, Time to Hunt), Park Seo-joon (Captain Marvel 2: The Marvels, Itaewon Class) actor/singer Park Hyung-sik (Strong Woman Do Bong Soon, Suits, Juror 8) plus BTS’ V (Kim Taehyung) and rapper/singer/producer Peakboy (known for breakthrough hit Gin&Tonic, and body positivity tune, Diet).
