    I seriously adore all of Infinite’s appearances on Weekly Idol. They were the first ever guest that WI had and watching them just goof around has always been a great way to pass the time. Seeing Sunggyu getting ganged upon by everyone is a plus too, of course. He isn’t the MCs favorite guest for nothing, yes?

    How many times has Infinite even appeared on this show? 1st was for Be Mine before the song became famous. 2nd for Paradise. 3rd for The Chaser. 4th for when they followed the boys to Jeju Island and did that feature on them. 5th was when Hoya and Sunggyu came to host an episode of it to interview Hyungdon and Defcon. 6th was Sunggyu’s appearance on the 2nd awards show they did where he practically won what? Half of the awards? Haha.

    Another appearances that had me laughing were Haha’s and Shinee’s :)

      Infinite and Weekly Idol go together like jam and bread.

      You can see how both value each other. From the day Infinite were the first group to appear on the show onwards, both the group and the program have grown. They grew alongside each other. Infinite and Weekly Idol are family.

      :’)

        Agree! I remember watching when Connie said all their songs are great but he doesn’t understand why they never get popular haha. And the next time they guested they already had a hit with them :)

        • yi2345

          Be Mine and Paradise =)

          Ahhh I can’t forget how Hoya and Sungkyu used Connie’s own words to attack him, and how both of them picked up the MC’s skills and attack them in that special episode with Tasty lol

          • http://infinite-stress.tumblr.com/ ian

            Sunggyu was a really good MC. Hoya may need more time to be more comfortable if he ever is to take more MCing jobs in the future.

      • yi2345

        Plus the show also helped to promote Sungkyu’s solo even when he’s not there. I remember that they played Shine when Hoya was voted (okay one vote is from Hoya himself lol) as one of the acting idols

        They probably didn’t expect the development of their relationship with Infinite when they first invited them to the show, now they’re like jam and bread like you said. I’m pretty sure Infinite will come out quite often in 2013, maybe YaDong will be there soon? ^^

        • http://infinite-stress.tumblr.com/ ian

          I’m hoping Hoya and Dongwoo will indeed guest on Weekly Idol soon :)

          Also, I can’t get over how a lot of idol seemed to have watched Reply 1997 and keeps on voting for Hoya on acting related polls :)

          EDIT::

          Wow, what a coincidence. Weekly Idol just tweeted about Infinite H guesting on the show!

          • yi2345

            HAHAHA I wanted to reply you earlier but I was working. Was going to say “The staffs are probably trying to contact Woollim right now as they saw the date of release to get YaDong on Weekly Idol as soon as possible”

            After seeing your edit, I’m going to say: They had a secret agreement with Woollim to bring the boys out at the fastest pace whenever they release something in the future. Date of agreement is unknown, probably before Sungkyu’s solo?

            Wow I should follow Weekly Idol as well. What’s their user ID? Are YaDong the only guest for the episode? My biased heart hope that they are. And I’m looking forward to see them introducing themselves like this: “Annyeong haseyo, we’re Infinite H aka YaDong couple”

            XD

            EDIT: Ahh it’s ok I already found it. Didn’t see it when I searched in English, then only I realized that I know Korean like 10 minutes later @_@

          • http://infinite-stress.tumblr.com/ ian

            They just actually finished recording for a lunch news program for tvn together with Sunggyu so maybe they’re headed to record for Weekly Idol right now because the WI staff is like, “Send us your questions RIGHT NOW!”

            They actually called them YaDong Duet, haha! It’s @bestidolone

          • yi2345

            Didn’t see your reply before I edited my comment but still thanks a lot! And yeah I was laughing at Weekly Idol calling them YaDong duet too, now the whole world knows XD

          • http://infinite-stress.tumblr.com/ ian

            Pretty excited for when their promotion starts with all the shows they have. I hope they can guest in some of the more major tv shows on the bigger networks.

          • yi2345

            Already preparing for Hobaby’s evil tongue and Dinowoo’s laughter ^^

    • animasaurus

      The staff even said that INFINITE and MBLAQ are their favorite idols because they are like family. It shows too because their episodes are always WAYYYY more interesting than everyone else. I’m not even being biased.

      • http://infinite-stress.tumblr.com/ ian

        The more you’re comfortable with the people, the better you’ll be able to interact with them haha. I haven’t watched any of MBLAQ’s episodes though. So I might get into that in the future.

    Oh yeah, Tasty freaking flopped right? Well we won’t be seeing them on Weekly Idol anytime soon…

    • http://infinite-stress.tumblr.com/ ian

      I checked your page if you’re a troll but you seem like you’re not so care to explain why you think they did?

      Also, we might see them again soon, when they make their comeback. Because, you know, there’s this thing called “not promoting”, in which time idols don’t appear in shows unless they are already really popular. I’m not sure if you’re familiar with this because maybe the idols you stan are all overworked so…

    • leadaegyu

      The boys have much potential but they’re just not bringing it yet. I mean, You Know Me was really generic and it didn’t left many impression on their debut, people could’ve mistaken them for a dancer duo. Or maybe people don’t favor male duo groups so much, look what happened with JJ Projects too :/ it’s either mismanagement or wrong promotion strategy… looking forward to see what’s going to come out next though.

      This comment is so unnecessary. I do feel like Tasty is more suited for the club and underground world though. Their music is really eclectic. I feel like that’s what direction woollim is trying to go with them anyways because apart from infinite, Jisun and Nell are the only other artists signed to the label with tasty and they’re not idols.

    when mblaq came are my fav episodes!! esepcially when they asked seungho to assemble a desktop cpu the first time and asking him to repair a bicycle on the second time they came. lolz this show is a lot of fun seriously!!

    • animasaurus

      I don’t even pay attention to MBLAQ all that much tbh, but their weekly idol is hilarious.

      • musicnmelody

        i love all mblaq appearances in variety shows. their weekly idol is only like one fourth of their craziness. if you want real chaos you should watch their sesame player. i watched it like countless times already lolz

    Infinite is the one that introduced me to Weekly Idol and they are still the most hilarious group among those I’ve seen on Weekly Idol (I didn’t watch all but will try to). Other memorable hilarious moments are B.A.P’s Zelo and Himchan’s laundry shop and MBLAQ’s Seungho’s ability to fix computer and bicycle XD

    Oh my God, when I first got into MBLAQ, their Weekly Idol random dance was one of the first clips I saw of them and I was instantly hooked. It was just soooooo laugh out loud funny; I still watch it whenever I need a little emotional pick-me-up. Watch it. I almost guarantee you won’t be able to keep a straight face throughout. Just soooooooo funny.

    I also love the idol rankings. They’re usually funny, too, but also quite insightful, since the staff uses a combination of both official promo stuff and fan stuff to sell whatever point they’re trying to make, and you learn a little bit more about idols, your faves and others. It was through the rankings, for instance, that I found out what a noona-babo SHINee’s Jonghyun is; I especially liked that they spliced together footage from him on Strong Heart and fancam stuff to prove their point.

    Oh, and Infinite. Especially Grandpa Gyu – I never found Sunggyu particularly cute or funny (watched him on Infinite’s You’re My Oppa, and was just distracted by his hair), but he is comedy gold on Weekly Idol as the disgruntled “oldster”, hehehe (being born in 1989 makes you old in Kpop; according to Kpop, I should be dead), who gets all cranky when his dongsaengs perfectly execute dances without him…I get why so many people like him. Him trying to sneak into the scorpion dance formation is just pure hilariousness.

      Do you mind letting me know where I can watch the full cut of idol rankings. I only found certain rankings on youtube, and sometimes only the cut of a certain idol instead of the whole list =(

    • http://infinite-stress.tumblr.com/ ian

      Dying because of you getting distracted with Sunggyu’s hair in YAMO. He’s actually pretty funny overall. I found him hilarious in Weekly Idol and Strong Heart but Ranking King sealed the deal for me. Everyone he was with in Immortal Song 2 said the same as well. Even the tvn News anchor from this noon with Infinite H was like so amused by him cause he had everyone laughing.

      Agree on the idol rankings. I don’t get to watch a lot but it’s insightful to know what the other idols think of their fellow idols.

    I really adore Weekly Idol. I rarely watched Korean variety shows but for Weekly Idols I have watched 4minute, B1A4, Teen Top, Infinite, Mblaq, FT Island, Nu’est, Zea, Block B, B.A.P, F(x), BtoB. In other shows the idols have to try to get the screentime but in this show the MC helps the idols be comfortable, make fun of them, give them opportunities to showcase their talents, discuss the rumours, and of course, play matchmaking between them ^^. I love this shows to death.

    You guys should watch the FT Island episode. Being a FT Island fan I know they’re not good with variety shows, so I was prepared for a lot of secondhand embarrassment. But it turned out to be hilarious. I clutched my stomach laughing.

    It’s also funny how the MCs always target one member to make fun of.

    There are some episodes that don’t do well as the others. In the Nu’est – Hello Venus ep the MCs focus on the girl group and ignore the boy group. I know it’s scripted but we’re meant to laugh at the MCs’ bias but it’s really not funny = =!!. The ep with F(x) is a little bit awkward.

  • edenhyper

    Love this show. It’s so random and yet funny without trying hard. Though I believe this show is one big troll-master in annoying Sunggyu. Infinite and especially all the Sunggyu appearances are my favourite. I hope Jay Park can come back on it with a few other solo singers – that would be great. Though the bands who’ve been on it more are much more entertaining than anyone else.

    May i noe how long is each episode? Coz sometimes i watch, it’s 1 hour but ther r times whn it’s juz 30 min..
