I ran across this press release about a new show being produced right now in South Korea that sounds very similar to TAR:

If you watch the American TV show ‘The Amazing Race‘, you might also enjoy MBC‘s upcoming survival variety show, ‘Final Adventure‘!
The show will feature 14 guests from the entertainment and sports fields who split up into teams of two and compete in the survival program. The first destination of the show will be Thailand, and the participants will be Jo Sung Mo, Tony An, ZE:A‘s Heecheol, actor Ryu Tae Joon, Hwang In Young, Lee Bon, Jung Ga Ram, Julien Kang, model Han Ye Jin, Ryu Suhl Mi, soccer coach Ryu Sang Chul, wrestling coach Shim Kwon Ho, synchronized swimming coach Jang Yoon Kyung, and Kim Joo Kyung. MC Kim Sung Joo will host the show.
A representative revealed, “The viewer ratings are an aspect that the staff cannot predict. Although there are several unfamiliar guests, we will give an entertaining show through its solid quality. It will be similar to the American program ‘The Amazing Race’.”
‘Final Adventure’ will premiere following ‘Dancing With the Stars 3‘ on June 14th!
