Ako, Roommate. then medyo naghahanap pa, pero gusto ko din yung Oh My Baby :)
Then Running Man din, nung nagkaron sila ng parody ng YWCFTS.

Si Kogi din ata, nanonood din ng Korean variety shows :D

My younger brother introduced me to Running Man late last year. Una kong napanood na episode was yung 2-part episode with Big Bang. Di ako familiar sa K-Pop/Hallyu culture, pero naaliw ako sa concept of using urban spaces for a reality/variety show na hindi lang purely physical kundi strategic and psychological din. (I just love how brawny and brainy KJK is tapos kung gaano ka-tuso si LKS.)

Tapos ang ganda pa ng blending ng personalities nila. 7 hosts and sila pa rin ang magkakasama after almost 5 years.

@daniholic Di ko pa napanood yang episode na yan. Mahanap nga. ;D

Yehey high-five fellow RM fan!!  ;D

Grabe, same tayo, I first watched RM through BIGBANG's episode (Dahil VIP ako hehe) then I never looked back. That was 3 years ago, I believe, and since then I've watched all episodes from Episode 1! Aside from BB episode, I recommend episode 79 (Sherlock special), episode 61+62 (China special, ep 62 is particularly memorable), episode 82 (Spy special) if you like physical + strategy games.

I think you'd also like Infinity Challenge (also starring Yoo Jae-suk and Haha) - ito yung "top variety show" ng Korea, having aired for 10 years now. Dito rin galing inital concept ng RM sa mga occasional "chase" specials - namely "Money Bag" special Pimple Break special and Bigbang's episode na physical + strategy overdose!! haha

If you want a website where you can watch all the episodes para hindi ka na mahirapan I can PM you :))

^ Yay, abangan ko yang PM mo. Di pa kasi nakuha ng bro ko yung external drive niya which contains all his copies of old Running Man episodes.

Gusto ko yung mga Math episodes nila, bilang I love Math. ;D Yung 1470 episode atsaka yung New Year 2012 episode na kelangan nilang makabuo ng equation na 1 ang sagot. Ang kulit ni Haha dun sa latter episode when they won. They don't need daw square root and all those complicated operations to form a winning equation haha.

Sumilip ako sa Episode 3 kagabi and halatang kapaan pa ang chemistry nila dun eh. And naintriga pala ako kay Song Joong Ki. Magaling din daw siya kaso he had to leave the show for his acting career.

^Yes! Song Jong-ki was one of the original members, after he left nag guest sya with actress Kim Sun-ah for a vigilante special :)) He was considered one of the smartest members alongside Spartan and Ace haha ;) Sana mag-guest ulit sya after his army service!

As for math related episodes, aside from the NY2012 episode, parang wala silang episode na solely on Math, usually "mini game" sya in the first half of the episode prior to the final mission :)) Though I remember 2ne1's first appearance, may missions na Math inspired. :D

Recommend ko din pala Episode 13, isa sa pinaka- suspenseful na episode ----- what most fans call the elevator curse haha!

Pm ko sayo link ;)

Since may thread na, might as well put in some useful content.

For relatively new viewers, some may find the members personalities "strange" or "OA", but keep in mind in Korean variety shows, members make their own "characters" to make things more fun.

Key characters include:

Yoo Jae-suk = Yoomes Bond (James Bond parody), Grasshopper, Yoo Hyuk (dancer persona)
Gary = Peaceful Gary, Monday Boyfriend, Sudden Commander, Random Mr. Capable
Haha = Haroro (parody of Pororo, a children's show), Kid (which is why he might seem childish at times)
Kim Jong-kook = Sparta, Commander, Tiger, Kookie (cute nickname), Mr. Capable
Song Ji-hyo = Ace, Bad Ji-hyo (you'll find her acting feisty and smacking people at times haha), Monday Girlfriend, Lucky Goddess, Mongji (Blank-ji, you'll find her zoning out and sleeping a lot)
Lee Kwang-soo = Icon of Betrayal, Giraffe, Prince of Asia
Ji Suk-kin = Big Nose Brother, Race Starter (once he gets eliminated, the real race begins because he usually gets ousted first haha), Impala

^ Yan thanks. ;D

Naawa ako kay Suk-Jin. Siya ang weakest link sa mga challenges. Sa nakikita ko so far, bumabawi lang siya kapag nagsama-sama sila nina Haha and Kwang-soo (Traitors' Club).

LKS may appear to be weak and annoying (at times) pero natuwa ako when he upset KJK dun sa Concours (sp?) episode. Ang lupit ng episode na yun, pwede siyang plot for a teleserye. KJK seeking revenge sa mga musical prodigies na nakaungos sa kanya.

^Recently, JSK has been winning episodes (I believe it started during 2ne1's first appearance) though super unti lang haha Traitor's club!



LKS appearing "weak" is part of the character he plays, there are some episodes na nakikita mo na malakas talaga sya, meron instances na Jongkook vs Kwangsoo nga eh :))

Meron din akong i-re-recommend na isa pang show, it's called The Genius[/u], para syang reality version ng Liar Game, if you've heard of it. Heavily Psychological and tactical sya, though never physical, ang talino ng pagkagawa ng missions!

^Sympre suggestions lang yan, marami pa nga sana kaya lang baka ma-overwhelm ka haha

Yung Infinity Challenge and The Genius makikita mo rin sa link na pm ko sayo. The Genius only has only 12 episodes per season, season 1 and season 3 were the best imo.

Kung magkaka-local version ang Running Man, eto ang nakikita kong counterparts nila:

Yoo Jae Suk - Caridad Sanchez Vhong Navarro
Ji Suk Jin - Jhong Hilario
Kim Jong Kook - Derek Ramsey
Gary - Matteo Guidicelli
Haha - Baron Geisler JM de Guzman
Song Ji Hyo - Jessy Mendiola
Lee Kwang Soo - Ryan Bang

Song Joong Ki - Enrique Gil
Lizzy - Liza Soberano

Pero sana wag nang gawan ng local version 'to. Ipalabas na lang 'to kahit late nights. ;)

Yay! Bell Hide and Seek is back in the latest episode of RM! Jung Il-woo is so competitive haha, he seemed different from his IC guestings!

Ji Suk-jin is getting funnier lately and having more presence after being a wallflower haha!

^ Di ko agad nakilala si JIW. Siya nga pala si Scheduler sa 49 Days. Parang lumaki siya hehe. (Naghahanda na ba sa army?)

Anyway, ang competitive niya to think first guesting pa lang niya. Kung di siya napili ni KJK, malamang the latter would have met his match.

12th guest appearance na pala ni JYH. Naisahan na naman niya si KJK sa Wolf game, pero nagantihan naman siya (sort of kasi si JIW talaga ang pumunit ng name tag) sa Bell Hide and Seek. Grabe ang pag-slaughter dun, tanggal agad sina Gary, SJH and JYH. Haha!

About JSJ, napanood ko yung old episodes and he had his moments. He's got the brains actually (in fact I'd rank him behind KJK, SJH and SJK in terms of intellect.) Plus magaling siya sa mga conspiracies. Too bad, mas ibinibenta ang pagiging race starter niya haha.

Sana mag-guest uli si SJK paglabas niya ng army. Siguro pag ready for airing na yung upcoming drama niya tutal SBS din naman network nun. Kung yung ibang shows/films nga nag-promote (like Birth of a Beauty, tapos yung film na Twenty 2 weeks ago)

(And yes, ako na ang biglang naging updated sa Hallyuwood. LOL)
