BLACKPINK Variety Shows and Essential Content: 2016

(Updated October 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

NOTE: BLACKPINK didn’t appear on any variety shows when they debuted, so these are mostly during “Playing With Fire” promotions in November and December.


Weekly Idol
(주간 아이돌)
MBC Every1
Episode 277
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.

Weekly Idol fansubbed episodes are blocked in Korea, so I can only link whatever subbed clips I can find on YouTube at this point.

“Boombayah” 2x Speed Dance

Random Play Dance


It’s hard to find subbed clips of Running Man on Korean YouTube, so this is a clip of them being revealed as guests and performing “Playing With Fire.”

Running Man

A popular and long-running variety show featuring a fixed cast who completes missions with various guests during themed episodes.


Get It Beauty
Episode 17
