Ya Shim Man Man

Ya Shim Man Man is a Korean TV show where a question is asked and the guest has to give an answer that is in the Top 5 Answer of the previously surveyed audience. If the guest's answer is not in the Top 5, then he/she gets blown by very strong air. (I've read that this actually hurts a bit.) The guests can discuss the question and work with each other to come up with the answer. The show gives the audience and fans an opportunity to get to know the celebrities a little better because they offer their opinions on certain topics and usually talk about their personal experiences about those topics. It's a very funny and enjoyable show. The show is also insightful as it brings up topic about everyday life and makes you stop and think a little (or sometimes, alot). After discovering this wonderful gem, I really wish I understand more Korean.

The episode below is one of the few episodes that has English subtitles. The timing of the subtitles is a bit off but please bare with it and be patient as I believe it's really worth your time! This episode is hilarious! I discovered it very late one night and stayed up until around 2 or 3 AM to finish watching it.

Guest actors: Bi (Rain), MC Mong, Kwon Sang Woo, Lee Jeong Jin, and Han Ga In. The latter three actors were on the show together to help promote their movie Once Upon A Time In Highschool.

Since the show is about an hour long, there is a total of 10 clips.

doozy: Hmm...I don't like Bi's opinion regarding the topic of girls who have friends that are boys. It sounded like he's a little too possessive and jealous. I wonder if he still feels the same way as this was a few years ago. Do other girls really like this trait in guys? On another note, Kwon Sang Woo's voice is lovely. For such a "macho" man, his voice is rather soft and soothing. Han Ga In is gorgeous as always.

I have watched half of that YSMM show with Bi and Kwon Sangwoo. My favorite is the one Bi, KJK, Whee Jae and Tak Jae Hoon. That one is the funnies one that I've watched.
