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

Approximate Promotion Period: June and July 2019

WEEKLY IDOL

Weekly Idol fansubbed episodes are blocked in Korea, so I can only link whatever clips I can find on YouTube at this point. This clip isn’t subbed, but the game is trying to guess K-pop dances by watching little kids do them. So, you don’t necessarily need subtitles to get the gist.

Guests cook a meal and answer interview questions, but they have to be quiet and stay under a certain noise level.  If they make a loud noise or talk loudly, the “mom” sleeping behind them will wake up and they have to wear something silly as punishment. (Sometimes it’s a different setting like school or the office, but there’s always a character sleeping.)

NOTE: For some reason, only the first few minutes of this video are subbed.
