(G)I-DLE Variety Shows and Essential Content: “Oh My God” 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
