Where Is Mr. Kim (Korean김무명을 찾아라) is a South Korean television program that airs on tvN. Before starting out as a regular variety show, 2 pilot episodes were aired on 7 and 8 October at 19:40 (KST).

On 1st February 2018, it was announced that Season 2 of the show has been confirmed, with Lee Sang-min and Jeong Hyeong-don to remain while mixed martial artist Kim Dong-hyun and Girls' Generation's Hyoyeon will replace Season 1 regular cast Jeong Jin-woon and DinDin.

Program[edit]

Where Is Mr.Kim is South Korea's first ever infiltration mystery variety show where unknown actors/actresses showcase themselves with their acting skills. In each episode, the instigator, which is usually an experienced and more known actor/actress, will bring in a few unknown actors/actresses that are juniors to the instigator. The instigator will set up a situated theme and these unknown actors/actresses will blend in to it with other people who are genuinely based on it. The cast of star investigators will together experience the theme with the group and identify who are the actors/actresses among the group. If the cast cannot find all the unknown actors/actresses, the instigator wins the game.

In Season 2, the instigator will no longer be of an experienced, more known actor/actress.
