1 Running Man

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

This show is the first show that make korean variety show goes to the world! Of course this show is taught us that sometimes friends could be a member of family! Love this show

For most variety shows, I only watch the episodes with idol guest but for running man..EVERY SINGLE EPISODE IS VERY FUNNY, I even prefer running man without guest!

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!

Best Cast ever, period.

5 New Journey to the West

This show still the number 1 for me next to 1 night 2 days season 1...

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..

Ok but this show needs so much more popularity it's extremely funny and I find myself choking with laughter! I would greatly recommend this show cause not only are the case member amazing, but the production crew is equally as funny, they always pull entertaining tricks on the case which are hilarious, not to mention the flawless editing they add to the show, it makes it 10x funnier and I guarantee the funny games and sensational cast will leave you struggling for breath cause you laugh too hard, please do watch it and dare the show

I also agree that NJTTW deserves more popularity. The chemistry between cast members, despite their age gaps, and the chemistry between the production staff member and the cast are extremely likeable. The editing, CGs, Background music, games and missions, costumes and themes, everything is so fresh and funny ( unlike some other famous variety shows that are popular but getting dull and stale). This is the show you will never get bored watching it and also the show that will make you want to keep watching more and more. Can't wait to see the upcoming Kang's Kitchen and their new season with Kyuhyun.

9 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! 👍

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

This is one of ny favorite shows.

16 Busted!

This is the best variety show I have ever watched... I appreciate the plot and the thrilling part every ending of the episode will make you to crave for more episode.. it is a must watch and recommended for beginners and the casts are hilarious.. thriller, horror, some romance beacause of shipping the members, action, mystery, comedy and almost all sorts of genres.. the story, challenges and some parts are scripted but the solving part depends on the celebrities..

17 Come to Play
18 Ask Us Anything

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

19 I Can See Your Voice

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

20 Lipstick Prince
21 I Live Alone

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

22 Night Goblin
23 Great Escape

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

24 Intimate Note
25 The Genius
26 Heart Signal

Super cute and fun to watch dating show! Random people come and they live together for a month and it's up to you guys to figure out the rest


27 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

28 Master Key

I always laugh watching this show! it's really entertaining and there's some really interesting twist plots too. I love this show so much!

29 Hello Counselor

The hosts are amazing.

The hosts and the people, who come on the show are so funny and entertaining.

Absolutely love this show.

Watching the host solve the problems of the guests is so overwelming. They are not just solving problems but they are also funny. The conbination of the cast is just perfect. It's like your favorite dessert that you'll never get tired

30 Real Man

A fierce show showing toughness and dauntlessness of our favorite regulars, with an amazing twist.

31 3 Meals A Day

Seriously? I never thought living in the countryside can be this hard and hilarious.

It is a really good show though

- They have to match the right person to win the contest.
- Let's see who can find the right person?

38 Player

This is a new variety show and it's just hilarious. The concept is basically "try not to laugh" to win money but it's comedians playing and they're always trying to sabotage each other. They put them in crazy situations too which makes it harder.Funniest show I've seen in a long time.
