(Updated May 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

NOTE: Jungwoo is not in any of these videos as he did not join the group until 2018.

I’m not actually sure who originally made this series, though I’m inclined to think it’s MBC based on how they’re filming there. It’s a bunch of clips of them playing fun games.

Idol groups watch their music video and talk about behind the scenes stories and parts they like.
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. This clip is of NCT 127 trying to explain their concept to the confused hosts.
