(Updated August 2020)
IMPORTANT!!! I have moved to Korea since I created this blog, and I since have discovered that many videos – especially ones that are uploaded by fans with English subs have been blocked on Korean YouTube and other websites. This also means I cannot add as many full videos as before, because they simply are not available in my region. All of the videos on the list are the ones I can access easily in Korea, or they are subbed clips I can find on Korean YouTube. I apologize for the inconvenience! – Katherine

Also known as Ask Us Anything and Men on a Mission
A popular variety show featuring a fixed cast of well-known comedians and variety stars. It’s known for its “high school” classroom setting and promoted use of informal language. Celebrity guests come as “transfer students” and tell stories about themselves to get to know the cast better. Sometimes there are also other segments that feature missions or games.
This is not part of the regular show; it’s a segment where GFriend appeared on the show’s “counseling center” to share their concerns. As a result, none of the clips have English subtitles. However, this clip shows a game where you have to name foods that start with a certain syllable. Like if one person says “ramyeon,” the next person has to say a food that starts with “myeon.”
Weekly Idol fansubbed episodes are blocked in Korea, so I can only link whatever subbed clips I can find on YouTube at this point. This is of GFriend doing Random Play Dance.
