GFriend Member Profile: Yerin (예린)

Variety Show Appearances

IMPORTANT!!! I have moved to Korea since I created this blog, and I have discovered that many videos – especially ones that are uploaded by fans with English subs – have been blocked on Korean YouTube and other websites.  So unfortunately, I cannot watch most of these videos or verify the links anymore.  This also means I cannot add as many videos as before because they simply are not available in my region.  I’m sorry if you click on something and it’s no longer there, but there’s not really any way for me to check! – Katherine

Dong Dong Shin Ki
(동동신기)
JTBC
2020
Episode 13 (with SinB)
A web series that is a spinoff of Knowing Brothers, featuring cast member Kang Hodong as he learns to become an idol dancer with the help of Super Junior’s Shindong and other idol guests.  The name is a play on K-pop group TVXQ (Dong Bang Shin Ki).

As the dance line of GFriend, Yerin and SinB evaluate Kang Hodong and Shindong’s performance of “No Love” by Super Junior D&E. They appear in the last few minutes of the video.

Yerin is the 5th GFriend member to appear on the show. As of 2020, all GFriend members have competed except for Sowon.

A singing competition show similar to The Voice (in that you don’t initially know who’s performing). Contestants perform head to head in three elimination rounds, but their identities are hidden by elaborate masks and costumes. Thus, the panelists may only judge the winner based on his or her voice.

Unexpected Q

MASTER KEY

Yerin’s more of a spectator in this clip, but it’s the only one I could find on YouTube.

Master Key
(마스터 키)
SBS
2017
Episode 5
A variety show with a fixed cast and celebrity guests.  The players are split into two teams, playing games to win clues and find out who is holding the Master Key.  If a team guesses correctly at the end of the episode, they win a prize.

HAPPY TOGETHER 3

Happy Together 3 
(해피투게더 3)
KBS
2017
Episodes 513 and 514
A popular South Korean talk show and variety show that often has themed episodes based on the guests that they invite. Yerin appeared on a special Star Golden Bell special with idols like Sunmi, Taemin (SHINee), Lizzy (former After School), Kai (EXO), Dayoung (Cosmic Girls), Mina (gugudan), and Samuel (Produce 101).  The show has two segments, so Star Golden Bell starts after about half an hour into the first video.

Episode 513

Episode 514

LAW OF THE JUNGLE

Law of the Jungle
(정글의 법칙)
SBS
2017
Episodes 278-282 
Season: Komodo
A show similar to the American reality show Survivor, but without an elimination system. Celebrities (idols, actors, comedians) go to remote and secluded areas of the world, learning to survive in the wilderness through tasks like hunting for food and making shelters. 

WARNING: This video does show Yerin skinning and cutting up a lizard in the first five minutes. It’s semi-censored, but I put the warning anyway in case some people might not want to see.
This is a highlight reel of Yerin’s time on Law of the Jungle. Although Law of the Jungle doesn’t usually have subbed clips on YouTube, this one does have English subs! You just have to wait a few seconds past the introduction.

2016

Happy Together 3 
(해피투게더 3)
KBS
2015
Episode 461
A popular South Korean talk show and variety show that often has themed episodes based on the guests that they invite. This was a special for female idols known for their variety sense.  Other guests include Sunny (Girls’ Generation), Solji (EXID), Chahee (MelodyDay), Solbin (LABOUM), and Sejeong (who was in I.O.I at the time).

2015

Running Man
(런닝맨)
SBS
2015
Episode 237
A popular and long-running variety show featuring a fixed cast who completes missions with various guests during themed episodes. Yerin appeared on a “Couples Special” as Ji Sukjin’s partner.

There aren’t any subtitles on this clip, but you don’t really need them because it’s just her crazy dancing.
