Does Running Man a Number One Sunday Variety Show in South Korea?

My answer: Meh…

Running Man

This is my first time to post something outside ‘fun’ in this beloved blog. You know, I love peace, really, but somehow these facts keep bugging me so I decide to write some of it off.

Particularly, this post was triggered by some groundless article in soompi, -soompi, my dear soompi who usually goes non biased and become my trustful source- that made statement as below:

Second, and this is what this post talk along the page, to said Running Man is the number one show in sunday is obviously premature. The statement for sure is groundless, Nothing can prove that RM is number one show, not even rating nor critics said so, it just the author of the article. For example, when the author said RM is number one, should I tell you that RM achieve 13% point etc while, the ‘previous number ONE variety show’ 1 night 2 Days just get 25% point blah blah?

In term of quality? Don’t joke! 1 Night 2 Days might be not as popular as Running Man internationally, but this show, along as the member and some staff’s name is a household knowledge in South Korea. This is the show that not only survive for years, or just leading the rating, this show Continue reading
