Infinite Challenge members and Kim Tae Ho PD reunite for the show's 1 year anniversary of its finale

1. [+1554, -38] I miss 'Infinite Challenge'

2. [+1262, -43] When '1N2D' had Kang Ho Dong, Kim C, Lee Soo Geun, Eun Ji Won, MC Mong, and Lee Seung Gi, and when 'Infinite Challenge' had Yoo Jae Suk, Park Myung Soo, Jung Jun Ha, Jung Hyung Don, HaHa, and Noh Hong Chul - that team was really was the best..

3. [+805, -33] Let's do it soon... There's nothing to watch on the weekends...

4. [+617, -168] It was funny right when Hyung Don-ie was there.. It was nice that they did the Gayo Festival but after that, it was so-so..

5. [+387, -13] 'Infinite Challenge', my school year friend, I miss it

1. [+1217, -249] Even if they say they'll come back, I hope they come back as the original 6 members. Around the time they were ending, 'Infinite Challenge' didn't have any of their original vibes
↪ [+201, -17] Because of kids like you, they stopped doing the show, you still didn't come to your senses
↪ [+67, -2] They're doing it again... Just watch it quietly..

2. [+909, -131] When the official 'Infinite Challenge' Instagram did an Instagram Live, it was really nice to see Noh Jji Rong Noh Hong Chul. If they do 'Infinite Challenge' again, they need to add Noh Hong Chul again no matter what.

3. [+603, -106] If you're not going to do it with Yoo Jae Suk, Park Myung Soo, Jung Jun Ha, Noh Hong Chul, Jung Hyung Don, and HaHa then don't do it. They need to add Jo Se Ho and Yang Se Hyung to that foundation

4. [+494, -52] If it's not Yoo Don Noh team then there's no point, it's 'Infinite Challenge' if it's the original members

5. [+222, -20] I'll wait for you!!! Please come back~!!

[Korean Hostel in Spain Roundup] Episode 3

Nationwide ratings for episode 3 that aired on March 29: 9.2% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+739, -9] Cha Bae Jin's chemistry is really good, they all have individuality and the more you see Bae Jung Nam, he seems like a nice person

2. [+456, -5] The Korean B&Bs in Europe, especially the people who say things like auntie's special food every day and made travelers cry, they need to watch this and feel something...

3. [+399, -18] Bae Jung Nam seems like a person who's unrefined and simple but on the outside, I feel like his true feelings comes out ㅎ.. (t/n: They're saying he can't hide his feelings) He's like a kid ㅎ

4. [+230, -2] It's so fun~~ Cha Seung Won is also good at cooking food ^^♡ Cha Bae Jin all has individuality and they have good chemistry~ 

5. [+237, -23] Bae Jung Nam is a charming actor where you feel more warmth towards him the more you see him

1. [+587, -4] I fell him once again when I saw IKEYO Yoo Hae Jin cleaning. He completely took apart the sofa and then swept and cleaned, he dusted off the carpet. He does good job quite meticulously. Whether it's watching Cha Seung Won cooking or Yoo Hae Jin constructing something, they're quite detailed and seems like the sincere type. I like them because they're sincere with whatever they do.

2. [+324, -8] An odd show where you're healed even though you're seriously just watching. I really like the Cha Bae Jin team~

3. [+272, -31]  I feel like if it wasn't for Bae Jung Nam, they might've slipped - Bae Jung Nam joining is nice 

4. [+176, -3] Daeng gyeo duck ㅋㅋ Yoo Hae Jin's quick dad jokes are funny ^^ He said it's daeng gyo ori da ㅎ (t/n: He asked Cha Seung Won is he knows what 'daeng gyo duck' means and Cha Seung Won asked him what that is and Yoo Hae Jin says he means daeng gyo ori da which is roughly translated to you're going to come back from something (e.g. market) and he said daeng gyeo duck because ori means duck in Korean LOL) 

[Korean Hostel in Spain Roundup] Episode 2

1. [+3266, -21] As expected of Yoo Hae Jin, who you can trust to watch~~ IKEYO ㅋㅋㅋ

2. [+2201, -23] I seriously in awe during 'Three Meals a Day' but Cha Seung Won is better at cooking than most housewives! He's a husband in first place.

3. [+1896, -17] It feels like there isn't much but it's touching. It's weird

4. [+962, -10] Yoo Hae Jin's comfort... I quite like it

5. [+788, -10] I want to try that jjambbong stew ㅠㅠㅠ I feel like it's really yummy

1. [+1082, -16] I really like the comfort that's unique to Yoo Hae Jin. Cha Seung Won is really, really good at cooking that he's better than me, a housewife. I really want to try his food. Also whenever he goes to the grocery, it looks like he's walking down the catwalk ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ Bae Jung Nam is really a cutie. I really like the three of their teamwork so I'm really looking forward to next week's episode ^^

2. [+713, -15] There isn't a comedic point where it makes you laugh out loud but~ Like a river that flows calmly but it's Chajumma and Cham Bada's variety show that makes it feel like a relaxing vacation for you just by watching 

3. [+196, -4] I like how they don't wrap it and just show it just the way it is, it's fun

4. [+183, -7] It's so fun ㅎ

5. [+106, -0] I laughed out loud when I saw a third round of dessert coming out ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

[Article Translation] Yoon Ji Oh opens up about her story and her final moment with Jang Ja Yeon on 'Feast on the Road'

On the episode of 'Feast on the Road' that aired on the 29th, Yoon Ji Oh - a witness to the Jang Ja Yeon case and the only person who gave a testimony, made an appearance on the show. On this day, Yoon Ji Oh said of Jang Ja Yeon, "She's a person who'll make you smile when you think of them. She's bright. I've never seen her speaking ill of someone. The only rookies in our entertainment agency was me and unni. Her parents passed away and because my parents weren't living in Korea, we had a connection that doesn't need to be expressed. It was also lonely. I was also immature so I learned a lot from unni." 

She also recalled the horrible drinking parties she had to go with Jang Ja Yeon. They were coerced into attending the drinking parties. Yoon Ji Oh said, "They kept pressuring us to go to the drinking parties". She added, "We always went together almost as if we were a set. But because I had a mom, I would leave the drinking parties before 9. Because unni's personality is like that she didn't tell me what happened. I also didn't ask. The thing I want to say for the first time here is that unni can't drink well. It wasn't actions that she would've done when she's drunk. When I think about what happened then, I feel like she didn't drink alcohol and something was in it (t/n: she's saying that she thinks her drink was spiked). Rather than it being drunk actions, she couldn't keep her body steady. She was also inarticulate. I thought she was behaving like that because she can't drink well/had a low tolerance". 

After Yoon Ji Oh exposed the Jang Ja Yeon case, she gave up on an average life for 10 years. Her hands also trembled as she recalled her experience with being followed, "I had someone following me. I also know who it was that was following me. Their company name was on the car. They would follow me even when I would move around in a police car. Even when I ignored the traffic lights like a chase they would still follow me. When the police stopped them asked why they were following, they said they were gathering news. They said they're gathering news but they're not writing articles." 

She also revealed that although her family lives in a house, they have a security camera in their hallway because they're anxious. She said she feels sorry towards her family and that her family moved multiple times in Canada. 

Yoon Ji Oh also specifically revealed that she's not suicidal, "I have no thoughts of suicide at all so I keep saying that if I die that it's never suicide. Even yesterday, I went to the hospital and received an examination that said I'm not suicidal, I received confirmation that my will to live is strong."

Yoon Ji Oh then talked about her final moment with Jang Ja Yeon, "Unni said that she wanted to talk to me. That was the last time. It seemed like she wanted to tell me something. The former manager said, "Ji Oh-yah, call me as soon as you see this message", I called to see what was wrong and he said, "Don't be surprised and listen". My heart was racing. I sinked down to the floor and cried so much. I went to the funeral right away and stayed there."

Yoon Ji Oh revealed why she had the courage to come out, "I hope the perpetrators live with a guilty conscience. Aren't you secretly uncomfortable when you see me. My only weapon is myself."

1. [+4224, -14] I'm supporting you

2. [+2282, -9] Stay strong. They're probably trembling in front of the truth. I'm hoping once again that the criminals will receive their punishment no matter what. 

3. [+1434, -11] It's amazing courage. I'll support you

4. [+765, -10] Stay strong and there'll definitely be good results

5. [+680, -13] It must be hard but keep your heart and mind strong, forget about it a bit when you rest and try to have a comfortable heart and mind.

↪ [+109, -7] Seriously I hope she just comes out ㅠㅠㅠㅠ Wow seriously when she walking, it was so freaking cool ㅇㅇ Or even an appearance through the VCR...

3. [+1208, -44] Dhalsim!!!! She was seriously cool today!!! The model force when she picked out Sung Hoon's weakness, it felt like she was sprinkling magic around!! As expected of Han Hye Jin 

4. [+842, -45] Our members and Jessi, don't worry about hate comments - you're doing well, today's episode was relaxed and everyone's fun and I can tell you're trying hard - and it was nice seeing Dhalsim ㅜ Please come when time passes by

5. [+547, -14] Sung Hoon, please do a good job at taking care of your body, I'm sad that he's hurt in many places ♡♡

6. [+366, -16] Crazy - Han Hye Jin was so cool today, I was mesmerized while watching....

7. [+331, -11] Han Hye Jin is really cool... She also looks good with the orange hair, she was really cool when she taught him how to walk and even when her hair was blowing... Also Jessi is really cute but I'm sad that she's discouraged ㅠ

1. [+774, -14] Break up break up that freaking break up, can they not write an article without using that word?! It's been a while since we seen Dhalsim-ie, it's really nice to see her ㅠㅠㅠ She wasn't Dhalsim today, she was model Han Hye Jin ㅠㅠ she's cool

2. [+544, -8] Wow... Dhalsim no, no Han Hye Jin's walking was insane seriously

3. [+301, -4] No but she was seriously really cool ㅠㅠ so freaking cool.. so fucking cool... Top models are really different, I fell for her when her hair was bouncing while walking ㅜㅜ

4. [+316, -69] To be honest, since Jun Hyun Moo isn't there, the members' dialects blew up - Jun Hyun Moo cut them off too much 

5. [+199, -10] Han Hye Jin hwaiting...!!!!

1. [+2511, -82] Narae is working hard, I'm watching because of our Narae

5. [+455, -81] It's fun! Jessi hwaiting!

Our Dhalsim 
I missed her so much ㅠㅠ
Also I actually liked Jessi's episode LOL
I think it's understandable if her Korean isn't completely fluent - especially since she moved back and forth a lot from the U.S. to Korea when she was younger
I died when she said air purifier because personally I find that word to be a tongue twister too LOL

[Article Translation] A national petition requesting a middle schooler gets punished for killing two dogs with poison trends

(t/w: Before you click the link for the original article, I wanted to let y'all know that there's a graphic photo included in the article and it's at the way top of it. It's a picture of the dog while dying. I was caught off guard and it made me feel uncomfortable so I just wanted to inform y'all)

A national petition that's requesting for the punishment of a middle school girl has come up after she poisoned her neighbor's two golden retrievers by feeding them sandwiches that had poison in it. 

On the 23rd, a post with the title: "In Dae Jeon, a middle schooler put poison inside a sandwich and poisoned two golden retrievers just out of 'curiosity'". The petition is asking strengthen the punishment of minors. The petitioner then said, "We're in the state where we have a phone recording of the middle schooler confessing to the crime and there's witnesses. The middle schooler told her parents that the victim (dog owner) hit her (the middle schooler) and threatened her so she gave a false confession."

The petitioner then added, "After animals, it'll be a human. The middle schooler will get a slap on their wrist because they're a minor and if we don't strengthen animal protection laws then next it can be your family, your significant other, or your friend."

The victim came to raise the retrievers Hoya and Maknae after taking them in as abandoned dogs. The victim posted a video of the dogs' sudden death on Instagram - in the video, it shows Maknae in pain and the dog breathing their last breath. 

The victim asked the middle schooler, who lives in front of her, "You know my Hoya and Maknae, right?" and said the middle schooler responded by saying she killed the dogs by feeding them hamburgers. The victim alleges, "I went to asked the middle schooler but she lied and said she didn't kill them. I got mad and because I yelled, the girl nonchalantly said, "It wasn't a hamburger but the sandwich from school". The middle schooler told her parents that I hit her and threatened her so she lied. Eventually, the middle schooler's father sued me. After I went to them, the middle schooler's mother started cussing at me and showed rude behavior."

The victim says that the middle schooler's parents farm and that the middle schooler took the poison and put the poison in the sandwich and gave it to the dogs. She then added, "The veterinarian who saw the video of Maknae said the dog's behavior is of a dog when they eat poison and that it's painful."

As the petition caught attention, the victim said, "Please don't dig into the middle schooler's personal information, this is my opinion as a mother." She then added, "The middle schooler seems to be fascinated by things like occult and free mason."

The Dae Jeon Police who's handling the case said, "Because it's a case that's currently being investigated, there aren't any charges yet."

1. [+4469, -53] The next target is a young child. The characteristic of a psychopath is: first, they kill an animal, they'll take a break for a certain amount of time, and then they'll move onto murdering a person because they want a bigger stimulation. Yoo Young Chul and Kang Ho Soon all went through the process of abusing animals and transforming into serial killers. Male psychopaths use violence but because females are weak, they use poison or insurance fraud. You're asking us not to dig into her personal details? Because she's a psychopath, we for sure have to reveal her and thoroughly isolate her from society. The things that are the middle schooler's parents are seeing it and absolutely don't know how to control a psychopath.

2. [+2097, -19] If the petitioner is telling the truth then that girl is a psychopath. You know that Incheon elementary school murder case right? If more time passes, that middle schooler is going to now kill a person. (t/n: I'm pretty sure the other case this commenter is talking about is this one - Korea Herald)    

3. [+1242, -18] She's young but she can even become a potential murderer... First, they need to punish her and they need to leave record so that another person doesn't become a victim.

4. [+807, -14] The common thing of all serial killers is that they killed animals!!!

Don't fucking mess with animals!!!

Actress Jin Kyung reveals that she's divorced

1. [+2370, -28] I saw her for the first time in 'My Husband Got a Family' but she's an actress who was striking, after that, she made a lasting impression when she came out in 'Pinocchio' and another drama - she's so good at acting

2. [+2060, -110] In this era, people don't say anything (shit) if you're a divorced single ㅇㅇ  

3. [+1006, -40] What does that matter in an era like today's. She's an actor who's so charming!

4. [+286, -20] Jin Kyung's honesty is the best!!! Today's episode was so fun ♡ (t/n: This aired last week LOL)  

Park Hyuk Kwon and Cho Soo Hyang reportedly in a relationship

Original Source (Ilgan Sports via Naver): Park Hyuk Kwon · Cho Soo Hyang dating…Birth of an actors couple

t/n: He's 48 and she's 28. 

1. [+7118, -190] Her parents must be flabbergasted

2. [+3103, -147] She's basically his daughter...

3. [1336, -100] Hul.... He's her dad's age

4. [+1507, -299] Is the actor in his right mind, he's dating someone who can be his daughter

5. [+823, -77] Isn't he her parents' age...

6. [+506, -22] I'm thinking about the time when a middle school girl said she's a fan of actor Kim Yoon Seok and that she likes him and Kim Yoon Seok told her to change her preference ㅋㅋ He said that he has a daughter and when he sees things like that, he gets worried ㅋㅋ

Original Source (Sports DongA via Naver): “I’m the King in this area”, ‘Doctor Prisoner’ Namgoong Min enters ‘Kim Byung Chul’s kingdom’

Nationwide ratings for the episodes that aired on March 27 (cr. Naver TV- They air two episodes per day:
  • Episode 5 - 12.1%
  • Episode 6 - 13.9%
1. [+1099, -24The immersion for the two main characters’ acting is the best

2. [+850, -44It doesn’t feel like KBS… From the directing to the camera shot, I like it all ^^ Namgoong Min, let’s go for a daesang~

3. [+670, -18When Kim Byung Chul smiled while injecting the show, he was totally a devil, goosebumps - he’s good at acting and because his vocalization is good, the lines easily understandable

4. [+479, -31As expected, Namgoong Min’s acting that doesn’t let down your expectations, he succeeded this time as well.. From time flying by to the immersion, it’s a daebak drama

5. [+336, -18It’s a daebak drama

6. [+216, -10I think it would’ve been good if a different female lead came out instead of Nara and Lee Da In.. Compared to the male actors, their acting skills are lacking to the point where you compare it

7. [+182, -18Take Kyeon Mi Ri’s daughter out. It feels like a little kid is saying the lines and the immersion breaks. Just how good are her mom’s connections… 

Original Source (Sports Seoul via Naver): "I'll show the power of impossibility" 'Doctor Prisoner' Kim Byung Chul begins his counterattack against Namgoong Min

Nationwide ratings for the episodes that aired on March 28 (cr. Naver TV- They air two episodes per day:

  • Episode 7 - 13.0%
  • Episode 8 - 14.5%
1. [+1104, -33] Kim Jung Nan who's famous for starting it [dramas] off well~ Following 'SKY Castle', it was brief for this drama as well but it's an explosion of presence ㅋ Na Yi Jae and Seo Min Seok who are gnawing off of each other, their conflict is also entertaining

2. [+969, -26] I feel like Kim Jung Nan is somewhat of an amazing person. I don't know it for certain yet but I know she's an amazing person. She's somewhat of a peculiar character but... I feel like Kim Jung Nan is doing a ravishing job at giving a life to it. As expected, an actor needs to be good at acting

3. [+674, -9] Kim Byung Chul is acting while relaxed but his facial expression acting is the best, I'm falling into it.. Choi Won Young also doesn't have a lot of screen time but every time he comes out, I never forget him because everyone is good at acting.. ㅋ

4. [+609, -70] Who did the casting for the female lead.. If only the female lead left, I think it would've been perfect ㅠ

5. [+378, -26] Seriously their fight is chillingly entertaining. Even when I have chills, they make my palms sweaty and the level of immersion is extreme. Ah seriously isn't it too fun. The actors' acting is also no joke to the point where I want to see the making (behind-the-scenes).

6. [+261, -19] All the actresses are a miscast except for Kim Jung Nan.. ㅠㅠ

7. [+181, -5] I wish Kim Jung Nan had a lot of screen time... Does the female lead always have to be young? I think a female lead who had charisma and years of experience would be cool...

People are tired of the moms from 'My Ugly Duckling' trying to pair the female guests with their sons

Nationwide ratings for the episode that aired on March 24: 21.1% (cr. Naver TV)

1. [+5215, -404] They need to stop thinking that only their son is precious and other people's children are also precious *sigh* It's an eyesore to see old men working hard to catch a young, pretty woman but it's even more of an eyesore when a parent does it 

2. [+3079, -347] Even if it's a show, let's watch what we say.. To be honest.. Yoona isn't in a girl group that's unknown - why would she meet Tony, who has a huge age difference with her ㅡㅡ On top of that, Yoona also raised a lot of money.. She's different from materialistic people who hit on Tony for his money.. I feel like Tony's mother only thinks about his past and not how he is in the present 
↪ [+111, -12] Isn't Tony just an ahjusshi right now ㅋㅋㅋ Who cares if you were popular back then when he's just an ahjusshi right now ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

3. [+2346, -149] She's straight up saying get married - are the guests the neighborhood's doormat?

4. [+2075, -119] Seriously, there's no conscience ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

5. [+2026, -1196] Yoona's face changed..

6. [+376, -23] It's been more than a year since Tony has come out on the show but his mom keeps coming out

Original Source (Sports Chosun via Naver): "She matches well with Tony" 'My Ugly Duckling' Yoona, refreshing beauty who brings out the Mom-vengers's greed

1. [+1914, -117] Until when are they going to say someone looks good with their sons and what not whenever a female guest comes out, gosh;;;; Even Yoona's taken aback expression was clear, seriously the mothers need to appropriately pair people 

2. [+1114, -66] By any means, when an unmarried, young female guest comes out, they try to pair them up with their sons by any means;; Think about the age. Your sons don't think about their ages and have really high standards! On top of that, their mothers help.

3. [+651, -101] I understand they're greedy because she's pretty and nice but still, when it's not right, it's not right.. Yoona isn't a part of some unknown, third-rate girl group, why would she date Tony who's 10 years older than her.. Even if you look at it through wealth, Yoona has assets over a billion won.. She's on a different level from shallow-minded, materialistic people who look at Tony for his money.. I feel like she only thinks about Tony through his past 

4. [+575, -80] Have some conscience ㅡㅡ How is it that they pull this bullshit whenever an unmarried female guest comes out 

oh my gosh...
can they just end this show already ㅡㅡ
honestly, as a viewer, it's kinda off-putting to watch the moms preying on the unmarried/single female guests
and I agree with the comments asking why Tony's mom is still on the show as a panelist when her son hasn't even come out in years
