What is it about?
With a distinctly Asian style and a great mix of humour and gorgeous visuals, Twogether is a compelling travel show that sees the growing bromance between Seung-gi Lee and Jasper Liu evolve and grow over the course of 8 episodes as these two charismatic characters go on the search for their fans.

Each episode sees the pair travel across different, beautiful Asian locales including Thailand, Nepal and Indonesia. Along the way, Seung-Gi and Jasper tackle everything from language barriers to the local currency while engaging a variety of different missions in a bid to find their coveted fans. The different locations have missions the pair are forced to undergo which act as the tourist stop-gaps with a twist.

The missions then provide clues that help the pair track down where their fan’s house is before it’s on to the next location. It’s a fun and quirky way of adding something back to the journey and both Seung-Gi and Jasper Liu are great sports throughout, jumping head-first into all these different activities for the sake of their fans. 

Highlights
Twogether feeds off all the usual quips you’d expect from a travel show like this with expository text and little graphical animations popping up on-screen during various moments throughout the show. These little humorous elements help to give Twogether a distinct personality and stand out next to other offerings in this genre.

Drawbacks
None to be honest. 

Did I Enjoy It?
Yes, if you like to travel documentaries and haven’t experienced traditional Asian TV before, this is actually a great place to start. Each episode flows nicely and there’s a distinct desire to inject the show with as much variety as possible. 

Do I Recommend It?
It’s a light, breezy series and one well worth checking out.
