Need something to bingewatch through the weekend? Here are five highly addictive reality TV shows that allow you to get up close and personal with your favourite K-pop stars.
‘Livin’ the Double Life
One of the most anticipated variety shows, Livin’ the Double Life gives viewers an intimate view into the lives of musicians CL, Taeyang and Oh Hyuk during their off stage moments. In the few episodes that have aired thus far, we’ve seen CL open up about 2NE1’s breakup and her efforts to debut in the US, while Taeyang shared his honest thoughts on BIGBANG and his music career. Through the show, the world gets to know K-pop’s biggest stars outside their flamboyant personas – their fears, insecurities and all.
Triple H Detective Agency
Created for Cube Entertainment’s new sub-unit, Triple H – HyunA and Pentagon’s Hui and E’Dawn, this reality show focused on HyunA as the group prepped for their official debut. While we initially thought group dynamics might be slightly awkward due to HyunA’s sunbae status, the co-ed group proved to be fun and vibrant.
Although Dara TV is technically not a reality show, her v-logs offer fans an unfiltered view into her busy life. Each episode varies in length and content; she could doing vocal exercises in a bathroom before performing at G-Dragon’s concert in Manila one day, struggling with her makeup the next, or filming a beauty show the day after… you get the gist. Trust us, you’ll love Dara even more after tuning in!
Meant as a one year anniversary gift for BLACKPINK and Blinks, the upcoming reality show sees the members’ dreams coming true: not only are they going to Hawaii for a much-deserved vacation, the girls will also be living in their very own Pink Princess-themed house, where they’ll have to take care of everything on their own. This means cooking, cleaning and doing the laundry. How will the BLACKPINK princesses fare?
PS: While BLACKPINK TV hasn’t officially aired yet, do keep a look out for it!
Run, BIGBANG, Scout!
Filmed specially for the VIPs, the Kings of K-pop head to a campground to spend time together, play games and do normal everyday stuff like buy groceries. There’s just something so fascinating about seeing these mega celebrities doing average tasks that makes this series a must-watch.
