We plan to visit all the stations in the world, including subway stations and train stations, and explore various information and stories by going inside and outside the stations. We plan to meet citizens and introduce so-called ‘local recommended’ hot places to provide useful information, sympathy, and fun. .

He caught people's attention by appearing on a subway crowded with citizens, and raised the tension even further with an unusual 'report of discharge', saying, "I have been ordered to be discharged!" In addition, they not only collect vivid 'real information' by asking Seoul Station employees about nearby restaurants, but also communicate freely with citizens and even perform impromptu situation plays. In addition, he is expected to have fun by visiting 'hot spots' around Seoul Station and even securing direct photo shoots, enjoying the life of a 'military veteran' 100%.

The production team said, “Lee Yi-kyung is well-known for her extraordinary friendliness, so even in the first recording, she approached the citizens in a friendly way and performed tiki-taka, and even went so far as to recruit people to introduce restaurants recommended by citizens, and did a great job.” They added, “Lee Yi-kyung will be introduced in the future.” “Please look forward to a wealth of information and pleasant fun, including the various stations across the country, the ‘hot map’ that will be created by running around, and the laugh-out-loud talks with citizens,” he said.
