After dominating the K-Pop scene in 2013, EXO has been charming fans with wit and personality upon landing its very own variety show on MBC every1’s EXO Showtime.
Arm wrestling, bowling, becoming baristas - you name it - the boys are up for the challenge when it comes to providing fans with a good show.
YG’s upcoming male idol group Winner follows in the footsteps of their seniors Big Bang and 2NE1 with their very own Mnet reality show, bringing fans along for the ride as it prepares for its debut.
The group has already amassed a strong fan following through survival audition program WIN: Who is Next, and Winner TV has been feeding fans’ appetites for more Winner, highlighting the members’ personalities and charms.
This is Infinite
Infinite has returned to the variety circuit with new Mnet reality show This is Infinite, which premiered on February 6.
With fours years of idol experience under their belts now, the boys appear more confident and comfortable in their own skin, while fans are just excited to see more of their favorite idols in their natural element.
An appearance on MBC every1’s Weekly Idol has become a rite of passage for idol groups.
The bare bones nature of the show, from the simple white set to hosts Jung Hyung Don and Defconn taking friendly jabs at the idols, has won over the hearts of viewers, who tune in every week to see their favorite idols turn on the giyomi player and trip over their own choreographies.
Super Idol Chart Show
Just two episodes in, Mnet’s Super Idol Chart Show is a newcomer to the idol variety scene, but with seasoned radio DJ Super Junior’s Ryewook and B2ST’s smooth talking maknae Son Dong Woon leading the way as the show’s MCs, we suspect it will quickly catch up to speed.
Premised on idols ranking one another based on highly-contested topic like ‘Best Visual Male Idols’ and ‘Best Bodies’ each week, the show is expected to have fans talking.
