Recently I am trying to download all the episodes of the old xman show.
I have heard people loving it but since I am not really into game-cum-variety shows, I skipped it. I only started watching clips of some of the episodes when I became a fan of Yoon Eun Hye.
A net friend of mine, bloggurl, who you guys might have notice leaving comments every now and then from my posts was the one who actually got me interested in it. She told me of a funny story involving YEH and Kim Jong Kook in the Dangyunhaji (Of Course) game segment of the show. After watching that certain clip, I got hooked.
Unfortunately, the show ended already and a new show with a different format surfaces. I have not yet looked into that so I cannot compare them but there are some that still prefers the old show.
Most of you might have watched it already and is familiar with the mechanics of the show but for those who are not, let me just give you a the basic things you need to know about it.
It has been one of the most popular show in SBS. Basically, it’s a game show participated by two teams to which the members are celebrities. They will compete in different type of silly games and one of them is secretly sabotaging their efforts and that person is called the xman. They all hunt for the xman. Only the PD knew who it is because he is the one responsible in choosing the xman. The chosen celebrity is informed prior to the show itself.
There are different silly mini games that you will enjoy watching and some of them are the Horse Game, Palm Pushing Game, Couple Selection and the most popular among them is the Dangyunhaji (Of Course) game.
If you think about it, it’s just a simple game show but what makes it special are the participants. You get to see all your favorite Korean stars doing silly things, some are of course scripted and some are not. They claimed that it’s a reality show hence the title SBS Real Situation Sunday.
If you want a good laugh then I suggest go and watch them. If you cannot understand Korean, don’t despair because a lot of them are subbed already.
