A list of the best Korean variety shows. I've only listed those I personally enjoyed and have re-watched/update with. I did not include any idol built shows because there are many so I'll simply make a list for them for another time. This list is also a good guide for beginners who want to get into Korean variety shows. 

Hope you enjoy it!
