"Journey To Homeland" Season 2 Begins Shooting

Jack Tan Embarks on Another Journey to Explore New Villages

Kuala Lumpur, 2023 - The second season of the humanistic food documentary series "Journey To Homeland," co-produced by 8TV and Tonton, has officially started filming. Jack Tan (陳哲耀) once again serves as the host of the show, embarking on a new exploration journey. Starting from the Kampung Baru Jinjang where he grew up in Kuala Lumpur, he will travel north, south, and beyond, leading the audience to discover the beauty of Malaysia's new villages!

The filming for the second season of "Journey To Homeland" took place in Kepong on 26th July 2023 accompanied by a media preview event. Jack Tan was present and interviewed by the media, sharing insights from filming and behind-the-scenes stories. Despite his busy schedule, Jack Tan insisted on taking up the hosting role, jokingly mentioning that he was already 'ready' and only waiting for the show to invite him. "The response after the first season was aired was tremendous, so I am really looking forward to the second season. I even told the company that if the production team contacts me, I'll make time for them!" He mentioned visiting various places for shooting in the past couple of days, saying, "The most memorable experience was at the bak kut teh (pork rib soup) shop near my house, a shop I've known since I was a child. It felt really amazing! We also interviewed the lion dance troupe and paper craft masters here, collecting some stories." When asked about his improvement as a host, he humbly responded, "I won't claim to be excellent, but the behind-the-scenes team has helped me a lot. They've prepared ample information, coupled with enthusiastic interviewees. Sometimes I only say a sentence, and they give ten in return."

On the other hand, Jack Tan, who gained weight due to film work, was "accused" of having a hunched posture during the shoot. He admitted that it was due to his unconscious laziness, saying, "I've gone from 67 kilograms to 80 kilograms, and I haven't exercised for four to five months. Although I'm a bit concerned about how I look on camera, I haven't watched the playback. I have full confidence in the production team!" Additionally, Jack Tan was the first to reveal the upcoming shooting itinerary to the media, expressing excitement, "After Jinjang, we'll head north to Kedah and Perlis. The more exciting part is that we'll be exploring caves, giving a sense of adventure that aligns well with my preferences!"

The second season of "Journey To Homeland" is expected to air in the first half of next year. The show will continue the format of the previous season, focusing on Malaysian new villages, delving into the hidden food and craftsmanship within Chinese new villages. It will also use the lens to introduce the development, customs, and traditions of various new villages. Host Jack Tan will interact with local residents, gather more stories about the area, and even participate in local activities such as fruit picking and handicrafts, aiming to gain a deeper understanding of the local cultural background.
