"If they even starred on variety shows, our eyes will just shine forever... They're refraining from going on variety shows to let us rest our eyes."

"Truly an eye candy post."

"Lee Young Ae's aura is absolutely amazing... Even with age, she looks so graceful. Kim Tae Hee can't even compare... Won Bin's looking better with age as well.."

"Lee Young Ae makes me speechless... She's not just pretty but... she looks almost sacred or holy."

"Lee Ji Ah needs to be on this list!"

"This mysterious image is not just a concept. They just know better than to turn themselves into gossip for other people to talk crap about so they choose to live quietly out of the spotlight."

"I want Running Man to do a 'sculpted faces' special with all of them at once ㅋㅋㅋ"

"Kang Dong Won Bin, I love you..."

"Where's Hyun Bin..."

  1. Weird...


    You get popular to not come on Variety shows...
    It's basically not promoting to be promoted...

  2. but ji sub was on guerrilla date and choi ji woo was on Running man XD

    ReplyDelete
  3. wouldnt it be better if they appear on Variety Shows? we can see another site of them... K-Nets are so weird...

    ReplyDelete
  4. Sometimes being mysterious makes them more appealing.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Either they want to be mysterious or they are really bad about it

    ReplyDelete
  6. You know, some of them could just not be good or comfortable at variety so they don't go on them. Except Won Bin. I'm sure he would flawlessly own variety if he wanted to.

  7. "This mysterious image is not just a concept. They just know better than to turn themselves into gossip for other people to talk crap about so they choose to live quietly out of the spotlight."

    Kudos to them, really. It's admirable to see them so famous yet so private about their lives away from the cameras. Some choose to appear in a variety or talk show here and there, but they don't make it a priority like idols do.

    ReplyDelete
  8. and he's been on infinity challenge too! lol

    ReplyDelete
  9. As I expected, Lee Young Ae. She has this very strong aura yet her face
    Is so Angelic. She is also soft spoken and very shy whenever camera's are on her off cam.

    Perfect.

    ReplyDelete
  10. kim tae hee really look alike jiyeon on last picture... i mean past jiyeon...

    ReplyDelete
  11. i doubt that since he's so awkward. lol. but it'd be interesting to watch him on running man or infinity challenge

    ReplyDelete
  12. They let their works speak for themselves

    ReplyDelete
  13. "Kang Dong Won Bin, I love you..." Spoke my mind.. Haha.


    "Lee Young Ae makes me speechless... She's not just pretty but... she looks almost sacred or holy." And this... Geumja-ssi.. I love you.

    Haha I suddenly remember an interview Kang Dong Won did. He was asked why didn't he appear in any variety shows and he replied with something like he didn't like talking about himself too much. Remember he went on Happy Together to promote Temptation of Wolves? (there's clips on youtube) I think that was one of his last few appearances on a variety show, if not, the last. He even said it suited him best because all he did was sing.

    ReplyDelete
  14. So jiseob appear on the first season of dream team. That was a long time ago... And other variety too i guess. Choi ji woo on running man recently. It's hye kyo that I've never seen on variety...

    ReplyDelete
  15. what?? for real?? i only knew about guerrilla date LOL omg i must watch him on infinite challenge

    ReplyDelete
  16. Don't forget, Yoo Jae Suk was never a "guest" of any variety show hahaha! Even an interview with him is close to impossible XD

    ReplyDelete
  17. yeah and kim tae hee was on infinity challenge lol

    ReplyDelete
  18. Choi Ji-woo guested on 1N2D in 2011 too. She is too cute.

    How awesome would it be if 1N2D season 2 were to make a 'Actress Special' episode again or even 'Actor Special'. Since Tae-hyun is almost friends with every male actor (not literally haha but yeah), and Seungwoo is besties with Jang Dong-gun (+baseball ahjussi :P).. Thinking about it makes me happy, LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  19. some of them have definitely been on variety shows before.

    but this reminds me of an article I read on DB:
    dramabeans . com/2008/01/theyre-a-list-for-a-reason/

    generally.. it's the a-list movie stars who stay away from variety shows, and only few can get away with it.

    ReplyDelete
  20. She truly is.. I've watched two of her documentaries and I am mesmerized by her (and this is an understatement)... Especially by the way she speaks.. She's so elegant, charming, humble adorable, shy, hard-working and way too beautiful. Lol I hope this doesn't sound creepy, but her face is so sweet-looking, my mood will actually be improved if I see her.

    ReplyDelete
  21. i also assume that because they are on lists like this, they are payed a fortune for every role they play and don't need to do anything else.....
    But really, all of them look gorgeous *__*

    ReplyDelete
  22. I loved her in sympathy for lady vengeance

    ReplyDelete
  23. Lee Young Ae is dang gorgeous! I probably stopped scrolling and just stare at that elegance. O.O

    ReplyDelete
  24. if they go on variety shows more often there would be more fodder to hate on... Idols appear everywhere hence netizens have more material to hate on

    ReplyDelete
  25. Guerilla date is not considered variety show. All actors and actress in this article have been on guerilla date to promote their drama or movie. But it is true that so ji sub was on Infinity Challenge, which created such a big buzz because he is known to be a private top star who's part of the korea's untouchable gods.He agreed to do IC because he is best friend with Jung jun ha and the PD of Infinity Challenge have asked him to be on the show for so many times, even creating a campaign to have him on the show. He finally agreed after 4 years. It made huge news and IC promoted it very heavily by using the lines "the private top star you will never see in other shows". That shows you how "private and exclusive" he is.

  27. Being mysterious is better than having a lot of scandals, but I actually prefer stars who have friendly image like Yoo Jaesuk, Lee Seunggi, Cha Taehyun, Kim Seungwoo, Han Hyojo, or Park Shinhye. They often appeared in variety show but still manage to have great impression.

    ReplyDelete
  28. so ji sub-dream team season 1
    kang dong wan-yashimmanman if im not mistaken

    ReplyDelete
  29. Just a random question, is Song Hye Kyo in the same level as them or not?

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think so. I rarely hear about her when she's not promoting something

    ReplyDelete
  31. that's not a variety show.. that's just a normal interview

    ReplyDelete
  32. Boa pre-hurricane venus was also a mysterious star that avoided variety shows. she was probably one of the few idols who got away with that.

    ReplyDelete
  33. KANG DONG WON !!! I LOVE HIM AND WANT HIM ON RM !!

    ReplyDelete
  34. i saw guerrilla date last time for so ji sub ep..even the mc said that this is their first time seeing people line up at the side of the street just to see him

    ReplyDelete
  35. I saw So Jisub on variety show before..

    And Choi Jiwoo too, weeks ago on Running Man..


    "Where's Hyun Bin..."
    ^
    Yupp! Where's Hyun Bin? He only ever once guested on TvN Taxi

    ReplyDelete
  36. Kang Dong Won, my very first favorite Korean actor and always will be :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Seo Taiji's skin is whooooaa so milky white

    ReplyDelete
  38. I love that Kim Tae Hee, Choi Ji Woo, Lee Young Ae, So Ji Sub has become guests of my favorite Korean variety show Infinity Challenge.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Kim tae hee..mysterious concept went well.....

    ReplyDelete
  40. my oppinion for A-list male actor.. won bin is the most mysterious

    ReplyDelete
  41. It would be cool though to see them at least make an appearance once on a variety show [my personal pick would be either Infinity Challenge or Running Man].

    ReplyDelete
  42. zia..?hahahha well, she's a faceless artist haha XD

    ReplyDelete
  43. 1. They belong to a different era.
    2. Their level is different, they are A-listers for a reason.
    3. Back before idols took over every variety show, you did have some big names show up. Now try to imagine some of these people on the current tom-foolery that passes for variety these days *pause* exactly.

    ReplyDelete
  44. On running man you don't talk about yourself just run around and fight

    ReplyDelete
  45. Won bin!!! :)
    Omg. He is just so flawless.
    I don't think he will suit variety shows well though. I watched his interviews from "Autumn Tale" to "The man from nowhere", he seems to give very short and brief answers to interview questions, without the variety factor. If he is going to be on some variety show, I think he will sit and smile shyly the whole time.
    however, I perfectly fine with it. He just needs to be on another drama again!!! How I miss his face on dramas?!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Won Bin was on guerrilla date too :D

    ReplyDelete
  47. Choi Ji Woo was on 1N2D and Running Man.

    ReplyDelete
  48. It's about haaving the ability to be appealing without needing companies shove you in your face every week

    ReplyDelete
  49. "Truly an eye candy post."


    Agreed, lol.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Of course, Ninja Taiji has to be on the list. Like they say, 'obligatory subject'.

    ReplyDelete
  51. This Pann article must be a few years old? Because many of these stars have been on variety shows.

    ReplyDelete
  52. lol I watched his Star Date interview and it was so awkward. He's really shy.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Jun Ji Hyun.. You were my first crush. But where is SHG??? She doesnt go to variety shows....

    ReplyDelete
  54. i prefwer star with friendlier image rather than mysterious.....among these there also stars who are embroiled in huge controversies......sometimes i feel stars need to be open by that i don't mean it is mandatory or they have open up often but for the sake of fans and netizens so that when a scandal happens netizens somehow have a charecter projection of this star in their mind so that can come to the support of star.....but it's still up to them.......you are star why live in hiding......Cha Taehyun, Yoo Jaesuk, Lee Seunggi are like perfect example of friendlier image star as it becomes easier for fans to connect with them............

    ReplyDelete
  55. Maybe "never" is too much, but really, you could count in one hand how many times these stars guested on a variety show, if they ever did.

    ReplyDelete
  56. lol what's up with the dislikes.

    ReplyDelete
  57. Song hye gyo too I think should be here...Its hard for a fan like me to hear or see news about her....

    ReplyDelete
  58. kim tae hee was once on winwin. is winwin a talkshow or considered as a variety ?

    ReplyDelete
  59. "Lee Young Ae makes me speechless... She's not just pretty but... she looks almost sacred or holy."

    I could not agree more.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Ok I know this actors and actresses. keke

    ReplyDelete
  61. folks, the never part is an exaggeration to make a point that these stars are very private. So the posts mentioning that they once showed up on one show that one time is not really necessary.

    ReplyDelete
  62. choi ji woo wanted some kind of special treatment in running man because she was the 'guest' lol,

    ReplyDelete
  63. yeah, she was acting like a spoiled bitch all the time...

    ReplyDelete
  64. yeah, i love that show because of that.

    ReplyDelete
  65. There are cases where people get tooooooo familiar with their fans. That's why so many scandals erupt on Twitter. From Nichkhun criticizing 2PM (and then it backfiring) to the T-ara thing to IU.

    ReplyDelete
  66. won bin was never on guerilla date...

    ReplyDelete
  67. these stars are open but not as open as what most other stars are, thus, the "mysterious" image on their heads. but really, i follow won bin enough to know that he pretty much had shared all of his heart and soul to his fans before through his cd/dvd about his life and even on magazine interviews, he has always been consistent and honest.


    the thing about them is that you would only know/learn about their "character" if you follow them closely enough.


    and also, funny that you mentioned YJS and LSG - both are MC's on variety shows which basically requires them to be on tv all the time. they do not have to "hide" coz they're the front man of these shows.

    ReplyDelete
  68. If I remember correctly, Kang Dong Won was in Happy Together a long long time ago. I would love to watch it but has anybody found a video with English subtitles?? He and Won Bin are by far my favorite actors.

    ReplyDelete
  69. Admittedly, at first I think I was one of those people around here who didn't understand why Won Bin was popular. Lately, I've come to understand more. This comment is really true:

    "This mysterious image is not just a concept. They just know better than to turn themselves into gossip for other people to talk crap about so they choose to live quietly out of the spotlight."



    Stars who keep to themselves are more appealing.

    ReplyDelete
  70. has Hyun Bin ever been on a variety show? I would put him in this awesome group as well

    ReplyDelete
  71. So Ji Sub is my god <3 He´s freaking gorgeous and an really good actor <3
    I also really love Choi Ji Woo, she´s really pretty and sweet ~

    ReplyDelete
  72. I cant still quite understand the "won bin treatment" thing but yes, looking at the people here, i dont even remember watching them in variety.. well, just choi ji woo recently in RM but yeah... looking at how troublesome can be for a celeb to appear in variety these days... if the celebs are not good at it, theyll get flamed and if theyre good then theyll get flamed too because they might appear in variety shows too often... and God forbid if you say something as a joke and people take it literally... u're SCREWED... so imo, theyre doing the right thing... :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. what about Cha Taehyun..........appearing on cd/dvdand taking abouthis life and even on magazine interviews is different as it can be manipulative but appearing in reality shows is different....anways i am not argue about this.....just leave it to won bin ............but you have some good point and i have no problems with your opinion.........

    ReplyDelete
  74. Choi Ji Woo was on running man at least~

    ReplyDelete
  75. Forever love for Dae Jang Geum Lady. . . ♥♥♥ Lee Young Ae

    ReplyDelete
  76. choi ji woo already guest in running man right?

    ReplyDelete
  77. choi jiwoo?
    wasnt she being a guest at 1n2d s1 in early 2011?
    and in a running man last month? :/

    ReplyDelete
  78. Song Hye Kyo should also been on this list. I don´t remember that she guested on any variety shows.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Lee byung hoon and seo ji woo are out since I've seen them in variety shows..

    ReplyDelete
  80. won bin had a star date too but an exclusive one..not out in the public..anyway he is my ultimate crush in korean A-list of actors..I hope he'll consider doing a romantic drama nowadays,,please!!!
