Best Korean Variety Shows

The Top Ten

1 Running Man

Still the funniest korean variety show I've watched. But sadly, there's a rumor that their last episode will be aired in February due to some recent controversies involving two the members and the staffs.

I can't stop running man

Running Man is still the best and funniest Korean Variety Show I've ever seen. Hoping they will last longer. They made a thousand people laughed. I LOVE RUNNING MAN!

Running Man is the most well known korean variety show outside KOREA.

Really a hilarious show. One of my favourite Korean Variety shows of all time. I think Kim Heechul is just the star of the show because he is so savage and makes me laugh overtime he opens his mouth.

This show is hilarious. The cast has basically new filter (especially in the earlier episodes) so their savage/sassy remarks will surely make anyone laugh. I would ten out of ten recommend

Its because they are unique, they just play their character and sit in their desk and just playing with words. I think this show its opportunities for knowing the guest talent.

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

My absolute favorite. Like really. Korean things like idol, drama etc. Was actually introduced to me by this variety show. I absolutely love it, like literally.

My connection with Korea is this show and my rice cooker... Yes I only watch this show..I tried watching other shows but they don't give the warm feeling that this show gives...

The chemistry amongst the members is truly the best. I love how they don’t invite that many guests. So many other variety shows invite new guests so often it just becomes annoying. 1N2D isn’t some show that just wants to gain money and promote some idols/actors/actresses. I also enjoy how the format is consistent throughout its whole run, but every episode is still enjoyabale. It’s very refreshing to watch. Their reactions to sometimes bizarre situations are priceless. The production team is great and has great chemistry with the members. It’s such a shame that the PD stepped down. I just finished the new PD’s first episode. He doesn’t look too promising, but the last PD didn’t have a great impression on me first. There were times when the show drifted off a bit(season two), but it found a way to return and is fantastic.

7 Weekly Idol

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.

<3 <3 <3 especially the random play dance part! 👍
