The program is a documentary about trying to live in a country in a world where every day becomes news. This time, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi rents a small apartment and tries living in Seoul, South Korea. The broadcast journalist, Hideo Yanagisawa, accompanies him.

Through the caring viewpoint of those who live there, the two shop at a walkable-alleyway grocery store, and enjoy taking in the atmosphere of the town. By chance, they also meet with shiryanmin, people who were once primarily living in North Korea, and come to understand some people’s true feelings about North Korea.

At the end of his trip, Tsuyoshi will share in song what he gained from his stay.
