As a fan of variety shows! I’ll watch any which has an interesting concept regardless of the stars. On a random youtube binge, I discovered some very funny SS501 variety shows.
Again, I am not familiar with their music apart from their epic contribution to the ‘Boys Over Flowers’ soundtrack with ‘Because I’m Stupid‘. But as far as variety personalities goes, they have a lot of charisma and energy!
Here are my recommendations for SS501 variety shows
Thanks for Waking Me Up – This is a series about them being woken up in the morning. Mostly because they were terrible at getting ready on time. So they were having to deal with lipstick being drawn on their faces, being trampled over by puppies, being wrestled by a bunch of big muscly guys – it’s a very funny show! Definitely check this out.
Thanks for Raising me Up – This was a follow on from the previous series where this time they were raising a cute dog. I still can’t get over Kyu Jong carrying around his goldfish bowl and taking it with him to sleep!!
KM Idol World – It’s about them running around Japan and doing all these tasks like arm wrestling random people, selling their debut cd for 1000 yen, getting girls to buy them drinks, walking around a cemetery and pranking the youngest member of the band on his birthday (oh dear…perhaps it went too far because he cried!). It’s really really funny!
What’s great is you can watch these series really fast! They don’t go on for 100+ episodes. There’s about 8 episodes maybe per series? So it is good to marathon on a lazy Saturday afternoon.
