Roommate (Korean: 룸메이트) is a South Korean reality show; formerly part of SBS‘s Good Sunday lineup. It was first scheduled to be aired on April 20, 2014, but due to the Sewol ferry tragedy and the temporary broadcast halt, the airing date was pushed to May 4, 2014. The show features eleven celebrities living together in a share house, sharing common spaces such as the kitchen, living room, and washrooms, as well as household tasks. The house features sixty cameras and five bedrooms. The program is a response to society today where single-person households are dramatically increasing and aims to show the life, troubles, and joys of twelve different celebrities as they form friendships, relationships and possibly enemies living together under one roof.
Six of the original eleven roommates have left the show ending the first season of Roommate on September 14, 2014. Seven new roommates have been added for a brand new second season beginning September 21, 2014. With the return of K-pop Star toGood Sunday, Roommate moved to airing every Tuesday at 11:15 pm as a stand-alone program starting November 25, 2014
