Best Korean Variety Shows

The Top Ten

1 Running Man

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

They always make me laugh by the way I'm from the philippines

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

2 Knowing Bros

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

Like their concept

Love them they are the best


3 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

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

The best

Best show sadly ended because scandal

4 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.

Phenomenal show with hilarious cast.

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.

My favorite variety show to be honest

5 Strong Heart


6 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

7 Master in the House/All the Butlers

Love the show!

It is so great to be healing yourself

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

Super love the show, the MCs and the masters too

8 We Got Married

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

Watched several couples and mostly are fun

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.

9 Busted!

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!

10/10 ( it's a bit scary)

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

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..

10 Law of the Jungle

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!


If u love adventure n nature this is just right for u. N law of the jungle also makes me want to be more eco friendly. I know using less plastic materials. Also chief byung man is the best!

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

The Newcomers

? Little Forest

Kids are so cute!

It's like a happy virus when u see the kids all smiling and having fun at the countrysides. I really wish this show will return for their next season. Love to see how Seung-gi, Seo-jin, Na-rae, and So-min handle all the little angels who are trying to learn and experience new things in the countryside.

The Contenders

11 Sister's Slam Dunk

Love love love love

The best! I miss the season 1 caat so badly! must watch!

Best of the best

My favourite show ever!

12 Roommate

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

The best reality show ever

All of the cast are so funny I can't stop laughing

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

13 Weekly Idol

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

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! 👍

14 Return of Superman

Best variety show I've ever seen

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

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

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

15 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

Lee Hyori is fun

This is the dumbest list I have ever seen

Best place their show in this show

16 Happy Together

Just being happy together

This is one of ny favorite shows.

17 I Can See Your Voice

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

18 Ask Us Anything

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

19 I Live Alone

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

20 Lipstick Prince

They are so talented especially Rowoon from SF9

21 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

22 Come to Play
23 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.

Season 3 please

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!

Extremely funny and hoping for season 3:))

24 The Genius

BEST VARIETY SHOW IF YOU LIKE ONE THAT INVOLVES THINKING, a perfect mixture of every element to create an exhilarating game that spans til 4 seasons (unfortunately it's only 4 seasons)

25 Night Goblin
26 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!

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.

28 King of Mask Singer
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 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


31 Intimate Note
32 3 Meals A Day

I love this show with all their sub shows. life is hard just to prepare 3 meals a day. it might not much but watching them having meals is such a heaven

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

It is a really good show though

33 Real Man

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

34 The Boss is Watching
35 Invincible Youth

Invincible Youth season 1 was just AMAZING. Lots of characters and pretty fresh girls.. So much fun

36 It's Dangerous Beyond the Blankets
37 Star Golden Bell

Old school memories for me, knew sukjin from here

Really sad this show doesn't exist anymore, this show was everything and had all the right comedians

38 Cool Kiz on the Block
39 Love Catcher

40 3 Meals A Day: Fishing Village
41 Grandpas Over Flowers
42 Golden Tambourine
43 Guesthouse Daughters

"super funny show''

44 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.

45 Meteor Garden

Loved it seen better but it's the best

46 Crime Scene

The next variety to watch after watching genius if you love hong jin ho from there :P a perfect contender for busted because here you'll get more comedy than story
