Today’s topic is: favorite shows.
So, basically, since I like K-shows, I watch them most of the times. I know I don’t understand their language but I like to watch them. I almost watch them everyday. No. I watch them EVERYDAY. I watch the shows in the morning when I just wake up (if I don’t have work) or after work or after classes. Whenever I have time, I watch them. To be honest, these shows are pretty funny and I like them.
Currently, I have 3 favorite shows. I always try to take turn which show I am going to watch first and such. I can just sit down and watch their shows. People might find it boring, but not for me. I like them a lot.
#1: Running Man
This is one of my most favorite shows in my life. Those people who like to watch K-shows definitely know this show. It is very famous in Korea. Well, I think last time it was more famous because it was kind of different show compared to others. Their main game was name tag game, which they had to rip each other name tags.
For those who follow this show from beginning definitely know how the game works. Mostly they have some missions need to be done and they have to win their missions so that they can get advantages for their final mission. Most of their final missions were name tag ripping game. This game always highlights the entire show.
But recently, they don’t do this game anymore. I understand maybe because their members are already old and maybe they don’t have energy to do that. Yet, I still watch the shows anyway. Even though, in my opinion, it gets a little bit boring with their projects but they always entertain me. I mean they never failed to entertain me. I still laugh with their jokes.
Sometimes, I re-watch the old episodes or the old episodes that I never watched before. I feel like the older episodes are way better than the current one. Their missions were very exciting back then. I wish their missions are getting better for the next episodes.
This show has been aired since 2010 and not sure till when this show will last. I really hope that it will last way longer. But I understand at some point this show will approach the end of it. Especially I heard that the members are going to start other game show. Well, I will still be their fan anyway.
Those people who never watch this show, maybe you can try to watch some of the short clips in Youtube. It is really exciting. At least for me.
#2: Hello Counselor
This is actually pretty good show. This show is discussing about people’s problems. From a daughter who had a very heartless dad, a mother who didn’t take care of her kids, a woman who was obsessed with dogs, etc. I’m not sure if their stories were exaggerating or not, but I like to listen to their problems. Exaggerating or not, I know that problems happen within our society and I think it is good to be aware about those problems.
Sometimes, their stories were pretty depressing. The one that I felt it was pretty sad was about a mother who didn’t take care of her kids. I was thinking why did she not take care of her kids. I would be fine a little bit if her kids were teenagers or around my age, but her kids were still in primary school. I was kind of mad the way that mother answered the hosts and guests questions. Like, as if it was nothing.
The best part of the show is actually their hosts. They did a very good job for bringing the show. They knew when to be funny even though the person who gave the concern letter was being serious. I feel that most of their jokes didn’t offend people. Well, I am saying in a third person view. Other people might feel different ways. So, yeah.
But really. I like this show. The hosts (and also the guests) really did a great job. I’m still looking forward for their next episodes.
#3: Knowing Brothers (Ask Us Anything)
I think this is pretty new show. But this show also never failed to make me laugh. The concept is a classroom in a school. So normally the guests would come to the show and said that they were transferring from another high school. Since the members of this show are guys, so they are more excited if girlband members appear on the show. But if boyband members appear, they won’t be excited. Sometimes, they would joke around and said to go back to their old school.
I feel like the main segment of this show is Ask Us Anything. Basically, the guests will ask them questions about their life and the members of the show have to answer the questions correctly. If they don’t answer correctly, they will get hit by a toy hammer. I think some of the episodes, when actresses appeared on the show, they would purposely answered the question wrongly so that they can get hit by the actresses (because they were stunningly pretty).
Each of the members really have different characters and I like it how they joke around according to their characters. I’m not sure if the jokes were actually offending the other members or not. Because sometimes I feel like their jokes were a little bit too much for others. But I think that’s how the members are getting closer.
It is funny if any singers or boybands or girlbands actually appeared on the show and the members guessed that they wanted to promote their new songs. Which sometimes it was true. They appeared on the show because they wanted to promote their new songs or albums.
Since it is new, I am not sure how famous it is. But, it is pretty good to watch.
If anyone of you haven’t watched either one of these shows, you can try to watch the clips in Youtube. Really. They are pretty good. Well, since the shows are in Korean, so you might wanna find them with English subtitles. Some of the jokes we might not get it, but I think I am used to it so I got most of the jokes. If anyone would like to know which episodes to watch, let me know! I can suggest some of them.
Alright, time to study! 🙂 Good night!
