Synopsis[edit]

Members of New Journey to the West season four runs a restaurant on Jeju Island.[8]

During the Season 4 of New Journey to the West, members had the opportunity to shoot their version of Youn's Kitchen in exchange for their prizes - a Lamborghini and a Porsche. The cars were an inside joke among the producers & scriptwriters, as they didn't think the members will be able to win, which ultimately backfired.

Kang Ho-dong, a rookie chef who is challenging cooking for the first time in his life, and members of staff at a restaurant will be responsible for preparing ingredients, ordering food, and entertaining guests. Kang's Kitchen is held in Hallym, Jeju Island, and pork cutlet is served to the guests of 10 teams selected through lottery. [9]
