JAEHYUN

Several vlogs Jaehyun did for the NCT YouTube channel. This is a playlist that I embedded.

Law of the Jungle
(정글의 법칙)
SBS
2019
Episodes 283-287 
Season: Fiji
A show similar to the American reality show Survivor, but without an elimination system. Celebrities (idols, actors, comedians) go to remote and secluded areas of the world, learning to survive in the wilderness through tasks like hunting for food and making shelters. 

Subbed clips of Law of the Jungle are usually hard to find on (Korean) YouTube, but one of SBS’s channels compiled a highlight reel of Jaehyun’s time on the show – with English subs!

WinWin (featuring other WayV members)

WinWin has a variety show called WINformation where he reads and answers various fan questions, sometimes with the help of another WayV member.

WINformation Ep. 1

When a fan asks if WinWin thinks Xiao Jun is strong, the two compete in various games.

WINformation Ep. 3

WinWin invites Hendery to answer fan questions with him.

WINformation Ep. 5-1

WinWin invites Kun as his next guest to answer questions with him.

WINformation Ep.2

WinWin reads and answers various fan questions, and also takes the MBTI personality test.

The members of WayV all dress up as Disney princesses to celebrate WinWin’s birthday.

WINformation Ep. 5-2

WinWin and Kun see how many eggs Kun can cook while WinWin makes one.

LUCAS

NOTE: Lucas is currently a cast member of the Chinese show Keep Running (奔跑吧), which is very similar to Running Man. He has been a regular member since 2019 and participated in Seasons 7 and 8. You can find episodes on YouTube, but none of them have any subtitles.

Lucas appeared on a foreign idol special with Park Joon (g.o.d), BamBam (GOT7), and Yuqi ((G)I-DLE). This clip is of them talking about how difficult it is to learn Korean, and what exactly Lucas learned how to say first.

A popular variety show featuring a fixed cast of well-known comedians and variety stars. It’s known for its “high school” classroom setting and promoted use of informal language.  Celebrity guests come as “transfer students” and tell stories about themselves to get to know the cast better.  Sometimes there are also other segments that feature missions or games.

A popular South Korean talk show and variety show that often has themed episodes based on the guests that they invite. Lucas appeared on the “Stars With Superior Genes” special with singer/actor Im Changjung, singer/actress Seo Yoojung, actress Park Eunhye, and Cosmic Girls’ Bona.
