    The show is a two day and one night show split into two episodes. In the first episode, it starts with a call from Yu Jae-Seok, the permanent MC on the show, telling the rest of the family where the next location is. Each member arrives along with the episode's guest, greeted by Yu Jae Seok who is usually waiting in front of the town hall or a waiting shed. The guest is then given a map to follow to the house that they will be staying in. Once they reach the house, they send off the owners on their vacation and look over the list of chores that the house owners have left behind for them to complete. After this, they begin with the first chore. While completing this chore a game is played in which the family splits up into two teams. After completing the first chore they either go on to the next chore or go to prepare dinner. When preparing dinner, the family splits up the duties once again.

    After dinner, the Family goes to the ranking contest or the games for chores. Before Park Ye Jin and Lee Chun Hee's departure, the sleeping arrangements are chosen by having a contest after dinner. Lee Hyo Ri and Park Ye Jin rank the guys in the family from 1, as the most desirable, to 6 (or 1 to 7 if there are two guy guests) based on how well they perform in the contest. After which the guys rank the girls. Recently, the ranking activities has been replaced with games to figure out who will be doing the nighttime or early-morning chores. The two losers of the game are chosen and picks another pair to do the chores with them. The first episode usually ends in the middle of the night's activity.

    The second episode begins with the continuation of the night's activity. After the rankings or the nighttime chores, the Family goes to bed. They usually sleep around midnight or later, because of the night activities or because they talk so much before going to sleep. The next morning the show's producer wakes up Yu Jae-Seok and gives him the instructions for the Wake Up Mission. Initially, the Wake Up Mission was in the form of a quiz but later on was changed into more physical games. Whoever loses this game, has to make breakfast for the family. The loser then picks one or two people to make the breakfast with him/her. While they make breakfast, the rest of the Family either goes back to sleep, or completes another chore. The people that makes the breakfast gets to choose what they want to cook. Most of the time, the process of making breakfast takes a long time so it will be at least noon or later when the family members eat breakfast. After breakfast, the Family does the remaining chores on the list left by the owners. While completing the final chores, another game is played. After finishing the chores the owners of the house return and the Family leaves. A preview of the next week's episode and guest/s is shown at the end of the episode.
