(Updated July 2020)
IMPORTANT!!! I have moved to Korea since I created this blog, and I have discovered that many videos – especially ones that are uploaded by fans with English subs – have been blocked on Korean YouTube and other websites. So unfortunately, I cannot watch most of these videos or verify the links anymore. This also means I cannot add as many videos as before because they simply are not available in my region. I’m sorry if you click on something and it’s no longer there, but there’s not really any way for me to check! – Katherine

*There weren’t many variety show appearances or online segments, probably because of all of the award shows and end of year specials.
TWICE TV6: TWICE in Singapore
TWICE’s web series that documented their trip to Switzerland. Episodes are available on V-Live. Click the text below to go to the episode on V-Live.
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 TWICE members dancing to Sunmi’s “Gashina,” which was extremely popular at the time. (Sunmi was formerly part of Wonder Girls, a JYP group and TWICE’s senior.)
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.
LET’S EAT DINNER TOGETHER
Let’s Eat Dinner Together
Members: Jeongyeon and Dahyun
A documentary style food variety show featuring two famous MCs Lee Kyungku and Kang Hodong. With celebrity guests, they wander around various areas of Seoul (sometimes other places in Korea) looking for people to share meals with. The goal of every episode is to find a family at the chosen location who is willing to (spontaneously) host them for dinner. The mission is usually done in pairs. These clips are of Dahyun randomly encountering a TWICE fan and eating with him and his family.
Idol groups watch their music video and talk about behind the scenes stories and parts they like.
A short variety show that is geared towards the international K-pop fandom, often having segments highlighting different parts of Korean culture like travel and food. K-pop groups often appear on the regular “Idol Weekly Interview” or “Idol Master” segment to promote their latest songs and play games.

LET’S DANCE! KNOW ALL THE BEAT CHALLENGE
NOTE: This is for “Heartshaker” promotions.
Let’s Dance (Know All the Beat Challenge)
(Let’s Dance 척척박자)
The group has to dance perfectly through their new song while the producers try to trick them (speeding up or slowing down the beat, changing the song, etc.). They have 5 chances to get it right – though they lose points for every fail. They can gain extra points through a bonus mission they can do while dancing.
