Wanna One Variety Show Appearances: “Beautiful” Era

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 (Last updated May 2020)

Approximate Promotion Period: November/December 2018

NOTE: Wanna One didn’t have as many variety show appearances in this cycle, probably because they were attending so many end of the year shows and awards shows.

Wanna One Go (Season 2)

Wanna One Go: Zero Base
(워너원고: 제로 베이스)
Season 2, 2017
8 Episodes
The second season of Wanna One’s reality show. This time around, the show shows more of the members’ charms through behind the scenes looks (shooting the “Beautiful” music video, life at home/in the dorm, taking trips to Japan, etc.)

K Rush 2 

Season 2
Episodes 7 and 8
Jisung, Sungwoon, Seongwu, Jihoon, Woojin, Daehwi, Guanlin
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. 

Happy Together 3

Happy Together 3 (Sing My Song)
Episodes 521 and 522
Minhyun, Jaehwan, Daniel, and Jinyoung

A popular South Korean talk show and variety show that often has themed episodes based on the guests that they invite. The “Sing My Song” segment is in the second half of the show and features various artists joining the MCs at a noraebang (karaoke bar).  Along with the standard variety show interview and games, there’s a contest – the artists and the MCs they’re paired with get to leave when unsuspecting noraebang patrons choose one of their songs to sing.  The earlier the song is placed, the higher the team’s ranking.   The other competing artists on this episode were Wheesung, Hong Jinyoung, and Sunmi.

Insolent Housemates

Insolent Housemates
Also known as Living Together in Empty Room or My Unexpected Roommate
(발칙한 동거 – 빈방 있음)

Seongwu, Jaehwan, and Daniel
A lifestyle show focused on celebrities who live alone and are interested in having roommates for a short period of time. One celebrity becomes a “landlord” and hosts other celebrities as “tenants.” The Wanna One members lived with comedian Yoon Jungsoo, with The Rose Motel’s Yook Joongwan as a fellow tenant.
