SuperM Profiles: More About Taemin

Select Variety Show Appearances

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

A continuation of the popular online segment After Mom Goes to Sleep.

Amazing Saturday
Also known as Doremi Market
(놀라운 토요일)
Episode 46
A variety show with a fixed cast of several well known variety stars and idols and then two guest stars for every episode.  Each week features one market in South Korea.  The cast members and guests must play games to win the chance to eat one of that market’s three representative foods.

Idol Room
JTBC (episodes on V-Live)
Episode 38
A K-pop centered variety show with former Weekly Idol hosts Jung Hyungdon and Defconn.  It generally features standard dance and mission corners, tailoring the games to the group or a specific member. Clips (especially subbed ones) are hard to find because the show is pretty vigilant about their copyright.  It’s best to go directly to the source on V-Live (click on the episode above). Taemin appeared as the solo guest but was joined by younger idols who were his fans: Jeno and Jisung (NCT), Chani (SF9), and Kim Donghan.
