In Netflix’s new K-variety show Busted! I Know Who You Are, seven of South Korea’s most popular celebrities play detectives who must work together to solve mysteries.
“I thought it would be fun to have the members enter a world very similar to reality and solve cases,” says producer Jo Hyo-jin in the newly released making-of featurette for Busted!.
“To be honest, none of us have an outstanding ability,” says Yoo Jae-suk, a popular K-variety celebrity in Korea, “but amazingly, we always solve the cases.”
For this new unscripted show, Netflix teamed up with producers Jang Hyuk-jae, Jo Hyo-jin, and Kim Ju-hyung of Company SangSang, which has had a successful track record in the K-variety scene. Jang, Cho, and Kim have taken part in producing popular shows, including Running Man and X-Man in Korea.
Busted!, two new episodes of which premiere weekly, is currently available on Netflix globally in over 190 countries. Netflix currently has 125 million members around the world.
