Must Watch! Appa Eodiga? (Dad, Where Are You Going?)

 photo appa1_zpscece2fd8.gif
Don't you tired of your KPop routine? No? Whoa, cool! Because I am. I'm so damn bored of KPop (maybe because I was stick with my job for the past 2 years). So bored that I skip skip skip all the updates from the fanbases (and crazy fans) I follow on Twitter. Still don't unfollow them, maybe soon! LOL.

Now instead of fangirling and spazzing about Bigbang KPop like I usually do, I only watch "Running Man". Until my office mate force me to watch this variety show called "Appa Eodiga" (Dad, Where Are You?). I said “no, later” but she insisted.

Turns out the variety show is hilariously good! I don't know about other variety/reality show since I only watch the mainstream (read: the one that everyone's watching) like Family Outing, Running Man, Hello Baby, We Got Married, etc. But Appa Eodiga is different.

Different because only one thing, the main cast is the children of famous people and their dad. Good idea, MBC. You got me!

The concept is the same like Family Outing, but the "family" is 5 dad with their children. 4 sons and 1 daughter, age range is from 9 to 6 years old. They spend a night in a village with all the limitation. Each dad-kid will sleep in halmeoni (grandmother) house. Exactly like Family Outing.

How will the dads do when they spend a night with their Seoul city-kids? With the old-traditional-dirty-shabby toilet? With the too hot mat heater or even no heater at all in winter? Without snack, toys, and handphone?

Every week, they do games with dad-kid as a team, then kids search for ingredients and the dads cook the dinner. Then they spend quality time, rest, and sleep together. Sometimes the kids cry because they miss their mom. :’3

Also it's interesting to see the kids is hilariously doing some random thing or say something like adult. Sometimes they "teach" their dad something we don't even think about. And don't forget the "love line" between the kids.

I'm on the 8th episode now and still watch it everyday. A must-watch show!

The cast with international age (plus one if you want Korean age). I take the photos from here. LOL. Too lazy to search myself. Thank you, rafaluvika! :p

My favorite kids with all his maturity and cuteness. Seriously, with that face Joon can be an idol anytime! (or already!). And yes, the father is the father and uncle of many K-drama. He’s father of A Pink’s Eunji in “Reply 1997”.

2. Announcer Kim Song Joo (41) and Kim Min Guk (9)

3. Actor Lee Jong Hyuk (39) and Lee Junsu (6)

I heard that the subbing team get banned by MBC so we only can watch until episode 22 (or 23, forget :/) with eng sub. :( Learning Korean will take a long time so let's pray together that there will be new subbing team for Appa Eodiga! Yay!
