I’d received emails asking about the ongoing program starring the members of SHINHWA, Korea’s longest-running boyband. The weekly variety airs every Saturday night, which I believe can be watched online during its broadcast on the JTBC network. Having been on air for a month, I reckon it’s time for a recap:
Andy Lee as James Bond; Kim Dongwan as Superman
Lee Minwoo as Wonder Woman; Eric Mun as Six Million Dollar Man
Shin Hyesung as Tarzan; Jun Jin as Invisible Man
Episode 1 – The debut episode unveiled 6 original superheroes accomplishing a series of challenges issued by the Devil, to receive hints leading to the whereabouts of the “President’s Daughter.”
Episode 2 – A continuation from the first, the superheroes made their way to a swimming complex, where the maiden was held in captivity. Given a series of IQ/EQ questions with wrong answers sending them being flunged into the pool.
Episode 3 – The Shinhwa Olympics with segments slightly tweaked for comedic relief – the highlight was the “Strip Judo” match between Minwoo & Eric.
Episode 4 – Aired last night is Part 2 of the Olympics where I’ll let the pictures do the talking. [ Full Episode ] The program is a must-watch, especially if you’re in need of a laugh to temporarily numb your problems☆
