Best Korean Variety Shows

The Top Ten

Running Man

My childhood classic! A great show to watch, and the Kwang Soo + Jae Suk combo is always a plus

It's the funniest show ever and I love watching it so much and I recommend it for people who are looking for a Korean variety show to watch

The show is very entertaining and unique. They are different from others and I wish they post episode everyday :>

You never get bored with their every episode. It's a good show to relieve stress because its just make you laugh even though you only understood the subtitle. I love this show very much

Knowing Bros

The chemistry between the members is so amazing, and I love how they don't go easy on the guests and aren't afraid to win! They have quick, sharp retorts and remarks and it's easily my favourite show ever.

They are the best cast which compliments each other to create a greater laughter full show. And more importantly everyone knows how to take a joke

They aren't worried about the age difference, which makes everything funnier since you can freely say whats on your mind, it's a GREAT SHOW to watch!

Super chill, but guests always shine on the show and we get to see unexpected sides of them! The regular cast is SO FUNNY especially Hee Chul & Su Geun! :D One of my favourite!

1 Night 2 Days

Another of the top 3 king, even though slapped with hardships the most but keep on bringing laughter every week and making me want to go to korea even more

One of the rare variety shows out there that does a mix of variety & actual contribution to society/raising issues/celebrating past heroes which is amazing! Never fails to make me laugh :) New season is great too!

I'm surprised the variety show with the highest rating out of all of these isn't number 1 on this list. This show was able to become a legend without the focus on guests or celebrities at all (although some of our casts are drop dead gorgeous; ex: Kim Junho) and I love the fact that it was the chemistry between the casts and pure comedy that they produce that enabled the show to do so well. This is honestly the most hilarious variety show, no doubt. So, if you're looking to laugh until your stomach hurts, this is honestly the show for you

(S3) I get to love korea bec of this show... best chemistry among cast... so hilarious and so natural...

New Journey to the West

The best indeed, the only variety show that makes me lose my insanity because of how funny the casts, staffs, games, plot, etc. Indeed the funniest.

My absolute favorite variety show and I'm always super sad when it ends! The new games are often creative, and the old ones are classic and never fails to make me laugh! The best part of the show however, is definitely the fantastic editing skills! :D

This show is a whole package you are waiting for, there is really no gap between the senior or junior, plus I think they have the same IQ which make this show become more epic.

This should be the best variety show.. They're so hilarious.. The chemistry between the member are awesome.. Each of them have their own roles.. The crew also awesome.. I want more of this.. I laughed so hard, and I can watched this show again and again.. Keep the members, and do more episodes..

Master in the House/All the Butlers

the only Korean show I am following every week and I didn't miss any episode. Smart, makes you think and you learn things, funny, it makes you feel good, I really love the 4 guys, it's all balanced and perfect

I love how 4butlers carried the show and experience what the master's doing. The masters are really master. Very inspired!

Fantastic show where cast gets to learn from the masters! Although the masters are often very senior, or really amazing, there hasn't been a single episode where I felt awkward :) Always laugh a lot and cry a lot in the show :') Cast is amazing!

I love this show! I learn so much about the Korean culture and there is such a good variety of masters. Plus the 4 guys are cute and entertaining. Live their personalities and how they interact

Strong Heart


Infinite Challenge

Best of the best in its time, perfect concept for a variety show which makes them basically can try and do anything they want

Nation-Variety Show

Dae bak


It's like an outdoor Crime Scene, although the comedy feels forced and out of place sometimes, it's still funny and manages to create an engaging story (you can't have both I guess) BRING BACK KWANGSOO FOR S3!

I hope there will be season 3! This show got me solving along with the cast. I get thrilled whenever I solve the cases haha! I love the diverse genres in this show. How it's mysterious, action-filled, thrilling, and funny at the same time makes you tune in for more. by the way I also kinda observe Se-Se couple (Sehun & Sejeong) because I really lowkey ship them

10/10 ( it's a bit scary)


We Got Married

it's a cool show because it helps celebrities to date and find love without negative comments

It's so cute and entertaining. I love the chemistry between the celebrities

It was super cute to watch couples dating and having fun. I truly miss the show. My favorite couples were Taemin and Naeun, Sunjae and Joy.

This variety show shows cuteness and gives you "feels" while watching your favorite celebrities swoon over one another.

Return of Superman

I learned all the parentinghood from this show. it taught a lot. and to be honest I miss Haru so much...

Kids their are so cute and it's a great show

Super cute and super funny. Have had me crying with laughter.

I like how the kids are shining in this show

The Newcomers

? Taste of Love

The Contenders

Weekly Idol

Love it more now especially as Kwang Hee & Eun Hyuk are the hosts :) Guests are made welcomed, and can often showcase their skills in a lighthearted manner!

Even if you don't know the singer, doni coni hyung will never cease to amuse you

I love their creativity

I got hooked on some of the kpop groups because of this show. The episodes featuring Big Bang were the reason why I became a VIP. *insert heart emoji* The Doni-Coni duo is iconic because both of them bring out the fun and embarrassing sides of the guests. Haha. The various funny segments also make this show a must-watch.


Its really a good show because it shows how celebrities interact

I love the chemistry of all these celebrity-strangers and hoped for a real love-line

It's the best variety show I've ever watched and its not scriptied at all

You really feel really close to all these people. Really funny and fun that makes your day. Everyone have their own different personality

Sister's Slam Dunk

I love the goal of this show because its empowering us to achieve our goals even if its absurd

Best variety show that I've ever seen, I wish sisters slam dunk still can going till season 20

I love the show so much!

My favourite show ever!

Law of the Jungle

Always great to see guests struggle/excel on the show, great show to see the true/unknown sides of the guests & their teamwork! Byung Man is superb and I really admire him ~

Felt like watching Bear Grylls show but with asian touch. love how Byung-man shared all his survival skills and how these celebrities experience the jungle and survival life. keep it up guys!

It's really funny seeing the idols try to survive in the jungles.

My favorite variety show

Family Outing

I enjoyed watching games and how they have to wake up in the morning to get for breakfast. I missed this show badly

This is the dumbest list I have ever seen

Best place their show in this show

Lee Hyori is fun

Happy Together

Just being happy together

This is one of ny favorite shows.

funny show

Ask Us Anything

Amazing variety show. It always make my day. Ps super funny

I Live Alone

It's a good show because it depicts the real life of a celebrity

The Rainbow Club has amazing chemistry between them. Every member they currently have fits in perfectly.

I really like the way hoster handle situations. And I live 3 idiots. Especially the crazy Henry

the chemistry of the case is amazing πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’

I Can See Your Voice

They are showcasing the singing abilities of many idols who are not able to shine

The greatest singing show. it's like the combination of the voice and king of mask if u get my point. sometimes I could shed tears when it comes to the old songs that' I haven't heard for such a long time

What's better than a battle of guessing who can really sing just by looking at their appearance. A lot of twist

Great Escape

It's a really fun and engaging show. The cast are awesome and have their own uniqueness that complements each other. The scale is so big and well thought. And each episode has it's own stories that's related to the next one. They have like a multiverse of great escape through all the seasons. For those who likes zombies, ghosts, etc. They should like this one.

I absolutely love this show! A good mix of comedy & actual solving of escape rooms, and the scale of the sets never fail to impress me!

Although this is a very new show, it has potential to reached great heights. It is about how people try to escape a building. May not sound that interesting, but add a bunch of comedians and idols, it becomes very interesting. This is no ordinary escape room, the scale is extremely large, very well thought out ideas and very challenging puzzles make it very entertaining to watch these grown men solve the problem. Definitely reckoned watching this sensational show

The product is superb, the casts are hillarious and the problems are awesome

Village Survival, the Eight

Reminds me of family outing. I guess that's why I love this show. hope this show still running and continue with the new seasons.

So underrated! Chemistry between cast is great! Perfect blend of humour and suspense. So funny because you never expect what the members will say. Hopefully there’s a season 3!

Season 3 please

Extremely funny and hoping for season 3:))

Lipstick Prince

They are so talented especially Rowoon from SF9

Mafia Game in Prison

Hilarious to watch them try and figure out who the mafia is, the games they play are funny, and it just gets better because they get better at being the Mafia.

The interactions between the casts are so funny

Lots of laughter and twisted events.

Hillarious and funny though

Come to Play
