4 Wheeled Restaurant (Hangul현지에서 먹힐까; RRHyeonjieseo Meokhilkka) is a South Korean reality cooking show.

Season 1 was aired on Tuesdays on tvN 27 March 2018 at 11 p.m. (KST) as chefs traveled to cities in Thailand and the season ended on 15 May 2018.[1][2][3]

Season 2 was aired on Saturdays on tvN from 8 September 2018 at 6 p.m. (KST) as new chefs traveled to cities in China.[4][5][6] The season ended on 17 November 2018.

Season 3 is being aired every Thursday on tvN starting 18 April 2019 at 11 p.m. (KST) as another new team of chefs traveled to different cities in the United States.[7]

The show presents various Korean chefs cooking in the country their cuisine originated from. The aim is to see if their cooking is accepted in the origin country as if it was in Korea.

Concept[edit]

The first season cast members are restaurateur and television personality Hong Seok-cheon, boy band Shinhwa's Lee Min-woo and actor Yeo Jin-Goo. Seok-cheon, an owner of a number of Thai restaurants, along with the other two members operated a Thai food truck in cities in Thailand. Their aim is to see if the Thai people would eat Seok-cheon's version of Thai food.[1][2][3]

The second season cast members are Korean-Chinese cuisine chef Lee Yeon-bok, actors Kim Kang-woo and Seo Eun-soo, and comedian Heo Kyung-hwan. They operated a Chinese food truck all around China.[4][5][6]

The third season cast members are boy band member Shinhwa's Eric Mun, John Park with the returning cast members from season 2, Korean-Chinese cuisine chef Lee Yeon-bok and comedian Heo Kyung-hwan.[7] Jung Joon-young was initially cast for the filming in Los Angeles and Shinhwa's Lee Min-woo was being cast for filming in San Francisco. However, due to Jung Joon-young's involvement in the Burning Sun scandal, the production team decided to completely remove all of Jung Joon-young's footage.[8]
