After producing a series of successful travel documentaries last year such as Restaurants on the Edge and Extreme Engagement, Netflix is back with another hit. The brand new docuseries Twogether launched to the streaming platform on Friday, June 26th.
It follows as two multitalented actors in their home countries come together to travel around six major cities in Asia. They have to complete missions when in each city, even though they do not speak each other’s language.
Given that neither of the Twogether cast’s stars know each other, many viewers want to know more about the show and why it was made. So, who are the two stars of Twogether?
