As always, the biggest variety shows of the week play on Sunday nights. KBS, MBC, and SBS pit their best face on for their Sunday evenings - and how did everyone do?


MBC's 'Sunday Sunday Night' continued to ride high, with 'Dad, Where Are You Going?' once again claiming the spotlight with 18.1%, and 'Real Men' also shining with 15.9%. For the entire 'Sunday Sunday Night' segment, the show came in #1 with 16.0%.



SBS' 'Good Sunday' has yet to recover its ratings, with Big Bang's episode of 'Running Man' coming in at 12.0%, a whopping 3.9% lower than 'Real Men'. 'Barefoot Friends' staggered along with a low 5.3%, dropping from last week. For the entire 'Good Sunday' segment, SBS came at a low 2nd with 8.5%.


KBS, the once all-time king of Sunday nights, suffered a low blow as their forerunner '1 Night 2 Days' lost at the ratings game coming in at a mere 9.8%, dropping to single digits. 'Mamma Mia' fared even worse at 4.2%, bringing the entire 'Happy Sunday' to a not-so-happy rating of 7.4%.


What did you watch last night?

I'm sorry for Running Man, it's just my boys were always shy :P they too used to sit on the studio or stage, you can't expect too much. they did their best tho, eventhough they were so tired

i'm not sure some of the people here really got what is written, they never said Big Bang increased RM's ratings actually, they said that "SBS' 'Good Sunday' has yet to recover its ratings, with Big Bang's episode of 'Running Man' coming in at 12.0%", which means that it didn't made much effect and that Running Man has still low ratings.

I watch running man every week although I have lost a bit of excitement over the past few yrs.. I think its due to the layout change from chasing to....what it is now. It is a daring one but im hoping to see it again.

I just hope that the show wouldn't be canceled because of it's low ratings...It's one of the shows in Korea where they have many international fans. But I just hope that they would ease up a little on how scripted some of the scenes & episodes are, sometimes its getting to obvious and it gets boring.. but still I hope RM wouldn't get cancelled :))

I dislike their "new concept". Way too themed and they even got rid of their nametag ripping trademark game...


Does anyone know where can I watch " I live alone" show? I have been looking for that show subbed in english but I can't find it anywhere.

I watched Appa Eodiga, Running Man and 1N2D!!! I find  all three to be fun... but I'm shocked that 1N2D has such a low rating in Korea.

People who say RM is the best show because it's famous outside Korea should really give themselves a smack in the head. The only reason RM gets more fans internationally compared to other shows is because it's being subbed in English and exported to various countries thus reaching more international fans. It doesn't really have anything to do with the show being funny etc. RM is fun but the other shows are good (if not better) too.


Appa eodiga and Real Men really deserve the high ratings because the shows are great and enjoyable for the whole family. Both shows get more interesting one after another episode while RM is getting more and more boring. The last time I laughed like crazy for RM throughout the whole episode was during the 3rd survival game (before Shinhwa episode). Episodes after that have one or two funny scenes but mehhhh for the rest. Most of my friends also agree that it really is getting downhill and less enjoyable. Not to mention it's getting way more scripted than before. I could clearly see some casts intentionally losing games in order to make it interesting. Watch carefully and you'll know what I mean. 


RM should really step up on their game to beat MBC's shows. As for Barefoot Friends, it's ending soon anyway so let's just ignore their bad rating.

I agree with your point that other shows are not available internationally. Since I have been trying to watch Real Men in anyways possible through the internet.

@estillore-j26 I've been searching for it too! KBSWorld uploads their shows on Youtube so no probs there. DramaFever has subtitles for RM and BF. But there's none for MBC -_-

I disagree, running man is a good show but recently it's become much too scripted. By scripted I mean the outcomes, situations, groupings, etc are becoming too obviously staged, taking the fun out of the games and the show itself. Their concept of set the rules and watch where the dice fall is definitely what made the show so fun to watch in the beginning. Also I have not heard of Real Men but the other shows are available subbed in English. Also to base it on the big bang episode is bad for this article, this episode was one of the most boring in recent times. I like big bang but a boring concept paired with the obvious scripting and repeated jokes is tiresome. I honestly think that Gwang Soo is holding the show where it's at for being the butt of all the jokes and target of negativity, other than that, extremely boring episode.

Certainly people don't need to smack their own head if they say RM is the best show. It really all boils down to preference. I'm not saying RM is the best, but each show has its own merits and target audience. Contrary to your opinion, I think that RM is funny and it appeals to international audience. But since the concept change, its really hard to stand on that statement now. Appa eodiga is great, its gaining traction, I just hope the international version don't dilute the brand though.
