Top Gear global conquest continues with South Korean series
After setting up studios in Australia, the United States, Russia, China and more – not to mention the countless editions of the magazine in different languages around the globe – word has it that a new series of Top Gear is being readied for South Korea.
Following the famous Top Gear formula, hosts reportedly already lined include a professional racing driver named Kim Jin-Pyo, an enthusiast named Kim Kap-Soo and a local celebrity aptly named Yeon Jung-Hoon, along with their own Korean Stig.
The BBC series spinoff has reportedly been picked up by local television network XTM for a 13-episode pilot season and is apparently already in production, with challenges including a race against a bullet train and a cross-country road trip.
