King of Masked Singer

Korean Variety Show Focus: King of Masked Singer

This MBC production is a talent show that features celebrities/singers in a singing competition.

The thrill of the show is the audience’ inability to see the face of the singer because he is wearing a mask and only when the singer is defeated can his identity be revealed. 8 participants will start initially and will battle out in 3 rounds until the final person succeeds and challenge the reigning King of Masked Singer.

I am honestly still moving on from the 9x winning streak of Music Commander. His rendition of Tsams “Waiting Day By Day” is haunting me and it’s frustrating that it’s hard to sing it. He is the longest reigning Music Commander and his domination started on Episode 44.

At first the show didn’t appeal to me, but after 2 episodes, I finally submit to include it on my watch list because I love to learn more about Korean music artistry.

If you want to learn Korean contemporary music, this is an amazing show that will walk you through it.

The one thing i like about South Korean variety shows is just that, there full of variety. No other show does it like ” We Got Married ” were celebrity Couples from Actors, Actress, Comedians, are coupled together in a “FAKE” marriage were they go through all the motions of becoming a real married couple.


There first meetings is quite like a first date, First they meet each other with all the awkwardness of a blind date, then they go through the process of getting to know each other .. Being celebrity’s them self’s you would think that everybody knows everybody in this business, but in some cases its actually the reverse and they are unaware each other’s celeb statuses.

During the first meetings, red cards known as “Mission Cards” are slowly introduced to the couples during the show informing them of missions they need to complete or special notices like ” Your Moving To a New House Today ” or “Make Food for Her” “Plan A Surprise Party For Her”. KEEP ON READING !

1 Night 2 Days

KVariety Show Focus: 1 Night 2 Days

CURRENT CAST: Cha Tae Hyun, Kim Jong Min, Jung Joon Young, Defcon, Kim Joon Ho, Yoon Shi Yoon

South Korea takes pride on interesting and fun variety shows developed over the years. The more fun and engaging, a show would be, the more years it will stay airing on television.

1 Night 2 Days is a KBS Sunday variety program showcasing the beauty of South Korean peninsula. It is an impromptu acting for the celebrity actors on the games and missions prepared by the production team. If you have plans visiting hallyu-land in the future and you want to deviate from the usual google search results for tourist destinations, this show will take you to the most beautiful places of authentic Korean culture. For a travel show it’s a fun watch because of the vibrant members who make each trip memorable. The members play games for their food and sleeping arrangement. What I like most about this variety show is how you see the celebrities’ commitment on the show. They don’t care what task they will have, even if they will suffer or will look dumb, they will go with the production flow.
If you can get to the earlier seasons, it will be even nicer, but you may start your traveling with these rowdy hyungs on Season 3. -jediprincess
