Having a hard time choosing between the many episodes of "Weekly Idol" or EXO and EXID's Showtime!

Korean variety shows are endlessly entertaining, but they are usually made all the better when K-pop groups and artists make an appearance!

In a new thread over on Reddit, K-pop fans got into a fascinating discussion about which K-pop related variety shows and variety show appearances were the best. With Reddit being the home to a large number of fans who have diverse tastes and interests the answers were certainly very interesting.

Here are some of the best K-pop related variety shows and variety show appearances according to fans:

  • SHINee's latest Weekly Idol Appearance is great, even if you're not a fan of their music.

  • I love EXID's Showtime - I have rewatched it many times, and it never fails to make me laugh. Watching Hani on Crime Scene is also a gift (although Hani on just about anything is perfection).

  • GD's solo appearance on Weekly Idol was fantastic.

  • SISTAR on SNL Korea. Particularly their manager skit.

  • EXO's Showtime is great, especially the iconic haunted house episode.

  • Blackpink on Weekly Idol was pretty enjoyable (especially watching Jisoo unleash her 4D personality) considering it was their first variety appearance.
    Blackpink also recently appeared on My Little Television where you can see how much more comfortable (and funny) they've gotten in variety (and credit to MBC for the hilarious edits).
