GFriend Reality Show Heads to E! Asia


A reality show featuring popular Korean female pop group GFriend will launch on E! Asia in December.

The Friends in the Adriatic Sea, Feat. GFriend, a five-part show, will premiere December 6 on the digital platform E! Zone, the same day as its Korean launch, before rolling out on the E! Asia linear channel December 16. It joins a slate of Korean acquisitions for the channel, including Triple H Fun Agency, 2PM Wild Beat, Big Bang Made and SNL Korea. The show follows the band members as they embark on a European getaway, gearing up for a party marking the 1,000-day anniversary of their debut as a group.

“E! has seen tremendous success with Asian content, and we think that The Friends in the Adriatic Sea, Feat. GFriend will be a great addition to the lineup,” said Scott Mackenzie, the VP of channels for Asia at NBCUniversal International Networks. “We are thrilled to be premiering the show the same day as it airs in Korea. GFriend has a strong fan following across Asia and we are sure that their fans, and E! viewers, will enjoy the show.”
