Actors and singers alike will be waging war not in the entertainment world, but in the kitchen.
The cooking survival show Master Chef Korea will be launching a new celebrity version titled Master Chef Korea Celebrity on channel O′live, and bring in 11 cooking celebrities to battle for top honors.
The 11 contestants are Lee Gye In, voice actor Seo Hye Jeong of Roller Coaster, actor Kim Sung Soo, actress Sin Eun Jung, Tony An, Son Ho Young, Shin Bong Sun, Hwayobi, miss A′s Fei, Super Junior-M′s Henry and Dal Shabet′s Jiyul.
Miss A′s Fei and Super Junior-M′s Henry are especially expected to show off their Chinese dishes. Super Junior-M′s Henry even previously starred in the film Final Recipe and is known to be skilled in Chinese cooking.
The missions will follow the form taken up for the original Master Chef Korea. The celebrities will compete in the first mission to decide on the winner of the week, while the following mission will show who will be eliminated.
Star cooks Kim So Hee and Kang Leo will be judging with food marketer Noh Hee Young.
Production team member Kim Kyung Soo of O′live commented, "Master Chef Korea Celebrity was able to come into being thanks to the food entertainment know-hows we gained through Master Chef Korea and Kitchen Fighter. There were contestants who showed they were willing to give their all, and more who showed off great cooking skills at the first shoot [held on January 30]. You′ll be entertained at the new sides these celebrities have to show, and you′ll start to understand the joy of cooking in this serious competition."
The winner will be given prize money of 100 million won and a cutting edge refrigerator.
The first episode will air on February 22.
