GFriend Variety Shows and Essential Content: “Sunny Summer” Era

(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

Dancing Dress Room
(춤추는 의상실)
Dingo Music
An idol group has to perform their latest song wearing costumes they randomly selected.


Relay Dance
A popular series of dance videos where an idol group performs their latest track standing in a line, with one member dancing at a time.


Idol Room
JTBC (episodes on V-Live)
Episode 13
A K-pop centered variety show with former Weekly Idol hosts Jung Hyungdon and Defconn.  It generally features standard dance and mission corners, tailoring the games to the group or a specific member. Clips (especially subbed ones) are hard to find because the show is pretty vigilant about their copyright.  It’s best to go directly to the source on V-Live (click on the episode above).


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 clip is of “Sunny Summer” at double speed.

Weekly Idol
(주간 아이돌)
MBC Every1
Episode 367
A popular variety show that shines the spotlight on one or more idol groups every episode.  There are well-known corners that often involve dance challenges or aegyo, but the guests always play games or complete missions to earn prizes.
