[Weekend Variety Roundup] Omniscient Interfering Viewing, Running Man (Along with Birthdays), Hidden Singer (Zion.T)

t/n: Park Sung Kwang and his manager Im Song were celebrating because Im Song was promoted to a full-time employee. They've been working together for a couple of months and this is her first time being a celebrity's manager so her nickname is 'baby chick manager' because she's such a rookie. A lot of people look at their bond fondly because they bring out the best in each other and because manager Im Song is so hardworking, kind, and positive.

Nationwide rating for this week's episode: 9.5% (cr. Nielsen Korea)

1. [+2562, -9] Manager Song-ie is really nice and seems like a really nice person, I hope she doesn't get hurt in the future (t/n: In the episode, Park Sung Kwang said something like, if she wanted to stop coming out on the show because of like worries or because of like comments or something, she should just let her know and he'll stop coming out immediately)

2. [+1020, -9] This is something I feel every time I watch this show but.. No matter how much you like money and fame, the thing that remains with a person is their personality/character.. I feel like a person's kind, considerate heart is at the end, that person's value/worth.. 

3. [+613, -22] I feel like both of them have quite good personalities

4. [+516, -6] It was so funny when manager Im Song kicked the soju bottle on the floor ㅋㅋㅋ she's nice and it's really nice to see the pureness that fits her age 

5. [+338, -12] Manager Song-ie.. Without me even knowing, I'm doing a motherly smile.. I hope things continue to work out in the future~

Nationwide rating for this week's episode5.682% (cr. Nielsen Korea

1. [+947, -34] 'Hidden Singer' needs to stop dragging time, I know they're doing it because of advertising revenue but the episode is four rounds and the rest was the non-celebrities' trivial love for the singers, competition story - it's awkward. Like they did in the past, they should either just air for an hour or if they're going to do the whole two hours, they should increase the amount of rounds so that they can reinforce it with the fun of matching the singing. It also feels like you're being mocked by Jun Hyun Moo's joking. The production team's editing also seems like it's click-bait these days? (t/n: With the Yang Hee Eun episode that aired last week, they edited the preview weird making it look like she left the stage and the studio but they never showed that on the actual episode...) It was a show I loved and watched but while watching for two hours, so much yawning came out. It's really such a shame

2. [+450, -9] From now on, if they're going to bring a guest who's older, let's bring out a guest like Lee Moo Song-nim. He studied about Zion.T and listened to his songs  and even though he didn't know who the impersonators were, he's better than people who just randomly pick 

3. [+225, -11] 'Wishes' is really a hidden masterpiece... Moving

4. [+186, -16] If they're going to be like this every week, canceling (the show) is the right thing

5. [+165, -6] Rather than being a singer, I feel like he's an artist.. Each and every one of his words, you can feel his pure sensitivity so I was moved by Zion.T.. But the show is a bit forced.
