Korea has many variety shows that makes a lot of people laugh. And here are some recommended variety show from some broadcasting station from South Korea that I usually watch till now.
1. Running Man (SBS)
Running Man (Korean: 런닝맨) is a South Korean variety show; a part of SBS‘s Good Sunday lineup, along with Kim Yeon-ah’s Kiss and Cry (김연아의 키스 앤 크라이). It was first aired on July 11, 2010. This show is classified as an “urban action variety”; a never-before-seen new genre of variety shows and will greatly involve the participation of viewers. The MCs and guests are locked in a landmark during closed hours and are required to leave before opening hours. The first team to leave will win, while the losing team will be punished in the landmark. It has garnered attention as being the come-back program for Yu Jae-suk, the main MC of the program, after leaving Good Sunday’s Family Outing in February 2010.
2. Heroes (SBS)
Heroes (Korean: 영웅호걸; Hanja: 英雄豪傑) is a girl-group variety show that first aired on July 18, 2010, replacing Gold Miss is Coming. It is classified as a “popularity search variety”, where the female celebrities compete to find out which of them is more popular among citizens. The show will end on May 1, 2011 due to low ratings and will be replaced by Kiss & Cry.
