TV: 'Superman' criticized for too much YG promotion


Article: 'Superman', is the show meant to promote YG Entertainment?

Source: TV Daily via Nate

1. [+1,097, -86] It's hard to follow because there are too many guests

2. [+1,142, -154] I knew an article like this would be out. They should draw a line to how much promotion they're going to do, this is just too obvious.

3. [+1,175, -838] Tablo works at YG. Then why is Chu Sung Hoon not being criticized for promoting Japan? This seems petty.

4. [+113, -27] They really do promote severely.. I only watch the twins and Sarang lately.

5. [+98, -20] Jang Hyun Sung seems to be in on it too lately. How much did YG pay the show?

6. [+79, -16] 'Dad' is way more fun to watch lately than 'Superman'. I watch for Sarang but there are too many guests. KBS varieties love guests, it's like they can't run a show without them.

7. [+76, -3] These suspicions wouldn't come about if the YG artists were truly close friends but when Goo Hye Sun came out, I could tell that she wasn't even that close to Jang Hyun Sung with how awkward it was. Forcing a guest like that on the show is obviously promotion to the viewers.

8. [+75, -8] The YG promotion is honestly really bad when it's Tablo and Jang Hyun Sung's screentime. Big Bang, 2NE1, Epik High are on practically every episode... now UV, Goo Hye Sun, and even Gal So Won.

  2. Oh come on....
    Haru's interaction with YG artist were the cutest thing ever.
    She now recognizes Daesung as Fish uncle... LOL
    and she is the biggest blackjack ever

  3. Just a comeback schedule that YG actually commits to for once?

  4. With Tablo it seems genuine considering he actually works there but yeah it does seem a little forced with the Jun brothers.

    ReplyDelete
  5. seriously, i miss it when it was just the dad and their children. im tired of all these guests coming on the show...


    3. [+1,175, -838] Tablo works at YG. Then why is Chu Sung Hoon not being criticized for promoting Japan? This seems petty.


    this netizen is stupid, choo sung hoon lives in japan...

  6. There is the reason why Haru most popular among idol fans

  7. Not YG's fan but I don't mind

  8. I don't know about you guys but I like seeing more guests :) It's fun seeing Bigbang, Epik High, etc on the show. Plus, they don't even take that much screen time... :/

    which ep is this? i alr stopped watching the show but i wanna watch this ep

    ReplyDelete
  10. Well since Superman Returns still has high ratings it obviously isn't that big of an issue -_- Knetz complain about everything... I mean that is Tablo's job... What else is he supposed to do? Should Sarang's dad get criticized for showing off MMA? How about Jang Hyun Sung.. he always has celebrity actors over and Hwaeji has celebrity after celebrity so why only pick on Tablo and YG?

    ReplyDelete
  11. Well I'm not complaining.... Plus this means that the relationship between YG and KBS is continuously improving, right? I'm all for it. If you don't wanna watch, don't watch. Don't make the decision to watch it yourself and waste time criticizing something you don't enjoy.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Well obviously the kids are fans so y would they take them to see someone else if they want to see YG artists? People complaining about the craziest things..

    Using racism as a defence nice one jackass.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Aren't they doing their YG Family Tour right now? So it makes sense that the footage would be with Tablo with the YG Family since he does work there.

    ReplyDelete
  15. haru is the sweetest :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. lol... Who else doesn't watch this show? I tried but this is not my style same goes in Appa, Eodiga?..

    ReplyDelete
  17. Actually,I was really kinda surprised when I learned Chu Sung Hoon was Japanese in nationality,I was thinking he was Korean all this time.

    I think it's more like KBS wanna use other idols/guest to promote Superman.
    Aside of YG artists, they invited SNSD, SJ, Kwanghee, Yeo Jin Goo and other athletes to the show.(I dont think some of the dads are extremely close to them, it is most probably the staffs asked them to call/visit those celebs.

    ReplyDelete
  19. But that is Tablo's work place though. Why don't they criticize Lee Hwi Jae for keep on bringing sportsman too?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Because Haru's father works in YG. If Tablo worked in SM or JYP or other companies, I think they will do the same.

    ReplyDelete
  21. In addition, Haru is like the cutest thing ever. Seeing her grow from being shy around G-Dragon to actually talking to him is so adorable <3

    ReplyDelete
  22. He's Korean born and switched his nationality to be able to play for the national team I think? There was an episode where he talked about being sorry to his dad for having had to choose the opposing team or something.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yes! I wanted to say this but I thought it would be mean lol

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love the twins. It's so nice to see how they slowly learn more every single day. There are episodes where I just skip Haru's parts tbh.

    ReplyDelete
  25. SNSD guested on the show too why aren't they getting criticized and the show even showed their concert there lmfao

    ReplyDelete
  26. Bald Mr.WorldwideJune 2, 2014 at 1:37 AM

    This is my top favorite Haru's interaction with YG artist. Damn this cool girl just humiliated Kang Seung Yoon lol.

    ReplyDelete
  27. SNSD guested on the show too and even showed their concert in Japan lol speaking of being biased

    ReplyDelete
  28. Well when both the parents are signed under the same label and they bring their kid to work i'm going to say "promotion" is bound to happen. Tablo has a job that affords him the luxury of being able to bring his daughter with him to work. Whether in the studio or on tour. And I'm sorry but Haru running around backstage was hilarious and cute. People trying to keep up with her and make sure she doesn't get into any trouble.

    I liked the bts of the concert bit.

    This is my only problem. Having guests is fine and everything but PLEASE at least make sure they're actually close/know each other. Sometimes it honestly feels like the dads just met the guest and it gets sooooo awkward lol.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Didn't KBS has problem with YG??

    ReplyDelete
  31. They're complaining because every week somehow you can see yg artists. That's what they complained. Soshi only for the two ep with sarang

    ReplyDelete
  32. Tablo & JHS works in YG so of course YG Ent and its artist will be featured in the show too lol

    ReplyDelete
  33. disqus_bNjKCChRKfJune 2, 2014 at 1:40 AM

    It would've been awkward and wrong if Haru herself wasn't enjoying herself...
    But if you see how happy Haru is during this episode...why shouldn't Tablo bring her there? Tablo even joked , "Idk if you came here to see me or Bigbang..."

    Haru loved her trip to YG Fam concert WHERE HIS DAD IS PERFORMING TOO. Whatever conspiracy netizens are thinking ryt now is ridiculous.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Speaking of complaining. Why must they add another kid? Their screen time tho. Heol

    ReplyDelete
  35. 2 of their cast works in YG & are friends w/ the other YG artist what can you expect? like seriously?

    ReplyDelete
  36. oot, but anyone find latest episodes of appa eodiga?

    ReplyDelete
  37. It comes with the territory I guess. Tablo works at YG, so of course, they're bound to plug in a few other acts to make it more interesting.

    ReplyDelete
  38. i kinda hoping haru would play with other people outside YG.
    it becomes boring seeing haru x gd again and again.
    dont get me wrong, i love bigbang, but tbh its boring lol.

    ReplyDelete
  39. THIS WAS SO FUNNY.

    The way KSY walked towards Haru feeling all handsome and then she breaks his pride !!! LOL
    Dont worry KSY in my eyes you're handsome <3

    Is it mean? Most of us know those celebs were invited for the rating.Let be honest, this variety show gonna be filmed for more than one years so if they dont bring in some celeb guests, everything gonna be boring and repetitive since we already familiar with how the dads take care of their children. The dad-child interactions are expected now.

    ReplyDelete
  41. You find this boring.....

    I dont even know who's cuter GD or Haru...???

  42. i agree w u. and it seems like they using guest to promote?
    i follow superman returns from 1st ep, and i kinda miss those time without any 'superstar' guest. so we can focus on kids n dads.
    now it seems they force the guest so much

    ReplyDelete
  43. I LAUGHED MY ASS OFF. We shall call him eodi oppa from now on

    ReplyDelete
  44. i watch appa odiga but not superman. appa odiga has a format like running man. unlike superman, it's like roommate? watching their daily lives, their routines etc. i dont find that interesting. plus appa odiga kids meet each other in every episodes and they do activities together. so you can see their behaviors when interacting with other kids. whereas for superman, the kids mostly (i thinks so) do things individually and dont always meet each other. i highly suggest watching appa odiga from the first episode, well, unless you hate kids. :)

    KSY is handsome but Tablo/Mithra were like 'kid never lie' LMAO this broke KSY's pride again.

  47. I think the show is the one who is trying to bring out more yg artists for views.

    ReplyDelete
  48. knetz can suck it then. haru's interaction with YG artists is my favorite part.

    ReplyDelete
  49. no he's japanese-born but ethnically korean. his family has been in japan since his grandfathers time.

    he may also have been choosing between having a south korean passport or a north korean passort, since i think it is rare for Zainichi koreans to be able to get japanese passport, since they're not allowed to get one by virtue of being born in japan? idk.

    ReplyDelete
  50. 7. [+76, -3] These suspicions wouldn't come about if the YG artists were
    truly close friends but when Goo Hye Sun came out, I could tell that
    she wasn't even that close to Jang Hyun Sung with how awkward it was.
    Forcing a guest like that on the show is obviously promotion to the
    viewers.

    the awkwardness was so painful it could kill. i thought they could bring in just any actual dog trainer and no one would notice the difference

    ReplyDelete
  51. yo.... -____- sarang and twins had waaaaaaaaay more irrelevant guests and they started it first. tablo was in yg fam concert so obviously all yg artists were there -____- idk about jang hyun sung but he just got in yg so obviously he'd want to check out all the yg places

    ReplyDelete
  52. Also, it's not only Tablo but also junu and junseo's dad Hyunsung. They visited the YG building and everything. Their interactions are so cute I can't see the problem.

    ReplyDelete
  53. she's so cute and lucky to get BIGBANG's attention like that


    *cries in a corner*

    ReplyDelete
  54. I think the problem was mainly between YG and Music Bank PDs... KBS and YG overall are ok with each other. Otherwise Tablo won't be on the show.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Well probably cause Tablo need to be in YG Family concert and Haru need to be with him so its naturally that they film. its like take your Daughter to work, I don't see the problem.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Then can I say "Roommate" is a promotion for Exo? They even went to support their concert! Not that I'm complaining...

    ReplyDelete
  57. Tablo pls adopt me

  58. She's so adorable I can't handle it

  59. It's cuz two of the dads work in YG and tablo has been always hands-on with his work in the studio and he has no choice but to bring haru there

    ReplyDelete
  60. The comments are not that bad. It's mostly netizens wondering why so much promo for YG.

    ReplyDelete
  61. Thanks for the info. I'm not a Kpop fan, tbh.. I really like this show, so the YG's things are not matter :D

    Lol. But when it's about SM in all 47825 shows... noone wonders. /js

    ReplyDelete
  63. Actually, people always told him to change his nationality so that he could join the Japanese national team, but he refused. He wanted to join the Korean one.. but failed. Well, he was born in Japan so you can probably imagine that he was discriminated a lot. And after he joined the Japanese Team, he was really hated esp after winning against SK. On one of the last articles about him and Sarang, a k-netz wrote something like "I'm sorry that your country betrayed you'd " (refering to SK)

    ReplyDelete
  64. i love seeing Haru with BB though LOL... and Haru's crush on GD is the cutest thing ever! <3 plus, i think it's kinda inevitable for them to appear on the show when it's Tablo's work... but i can see where some people are coming from

    ReplyDelete
  69. also YG artists rarely appear on reality show..
    YG stans need to see their bias too~kkk

    ReplyDelete
  70. I don't. I just dislike children and their interactions with adults make me cringe.

    ReplyDelete
  71. i was also wondering when they will bring that up.
    it's true that Tablo's part is mostly about YG's promotions since few episodes.
    of course i expect YG's fans to say "it's normal" etc but honestly you have to be really blind or stubborn to not see it.
    Roommate is also starting to do the same thing so let's hope that they won't overdo it like with Superman.
    i don't say they can't have guests from YG of course since Tablo works there but they shouldn't have them at every episodes.
    after all it's supposed to be about Tablo's relationship with his daughter, not the raltionship between her and every YG artists, that's why it is called "Superman".
    remember when you were all criticizing SM for doing the same thing ?
    let's not be hypocrite.
    any company doing it should expect that kind of comments.
    the show just needs to let less guests appear and focus on the original concept.
    you maybe think "we don't care about k-nets' opinions" but the shows' ratings are dropping every weeks, making it obvious that the general public cares, while Dad's ratings increase on contrary.
    this is not a coincidence.

  72. 7. [+76, -3] These suspicions wouldn't come about if the YG artists were truly close friends but when Goo Hye Sun came out, I could tell that she wasn't even that close to Jang Hyun Sung with how awkward it was.

    Jang Hyun Sung and his management team just recently transferred to YG....why the hell would you expect him to be close with anyone under YG (other than Tablo - because they're on the same show..)

    ReplyDelete
  73. YG artists appear on almost every single episode, SNSD guested on 2 episodes for like 10 minutes smh...

    ReplyDelete
  74. ".... Epik high are on practically every episode" hmmmmm maybe because tablo is in epik high lmao???????

    ReplyDelete
  75. I've watched 10 episodes of appa eodiga. Joon is my favorite but then the show itself is not my cup of tea...

    ReplyDelete
  76. But Jang Hyun Sung is under YG as well...

    This sounds sooo soo soo awakard!!!!

  79. i always look forward to see Haru with Bigbang especially GD.. it's a major bonus

    ReplyDelete
  80. Bald Mr.WorldwideJune 2, 2014 at 2:07 AM

    I think KBS doesnt have new things to show if they dont bring in guests. I mean they already filmed the dads and children interactions at home/schooling/sports/trip and even brought all dads and children together so a lot of things are quite expected now plus the competition from another channel(Dad's where are you going) is strong so I understand why they feel the need to bring in guests.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Yep, i agree. I understand that yg is a dads' workplace but i've never seen Jiah and Jiwook being in football field or Hoo being in studio or Joon and Junsu bring at fathers' acting scenes except for Joon's appearance in reply 1994 but he was like an actor xD

    ReplyDelete
  82. bwahahaha kang seung yoon and his smug smile, humiliated like that

    btw it been a long time since i watch tablo rotfl ing like that, maybe since epik high guesting in infinity challenge (in 2009?)

  84. Bald Mr.WorldwideJune 2, 2014 at 2:12 AM

    EVERY single episode is such a over exaggeration.Bigbang was only showed in like few minutes for 2 episodes while 2NE1 was only appeared for few seconds. Since Tablo is a member of Epik High so Mithra and Tukutz should be left out.

    ReplyDelete
  85. i see.
    so that's why the ratings were dropping these last weeks.
    i can understand, it must be annoying for the public.
    most of people don't like being brainwashed.
    that's the problems with idols companies, once they are given the opportunity they will try to put their artists everywhere.
    just looking at the photos i can see why it is upsetting.

    ReplyDelete
  86. that is why I don't understand the title of this article it should be the other way around lol

    ReplyDelete
  87. disqus_bNjKCChRKfJune 2, 2014 at 2:17 AM

    then you should watch the episode yourself instead of looking at only photos and then judging.

    Its not even like the artists visit Tablo/haru's place. Haru herself goes to the concert to watch because she likes Bigbang especially GD and his dad is going to perform at that concert too. Even at backstage, BB members don't even deliberately look for Haru because they are busy changing. haru herself is free to roam and cameras follow her. She's the one going to the artists' rooms to meet them.

    Come on, let the kid have her fun. Don't judge too quick with only photos.

  88. Bom filmed at the AON trip/fanmeeting/concert in the Phillippines, so both YG and SM will have promotion...

    ReplyDelete
  89. Yes! That's all I want to be honest, the dads and the children and at the end of the days, moms coming home (the best part). but, I guess it can't be helped that they involve the work related stuff into the show, too. but, too many guests do get annoying.

    ReplyDelete
  90. Bald Mr.WorldwideJune 2, 2014 at 2:19 AM

    agree. That new kid is cute but I still dont find him and his dad entertaining as the original casts.

    ReplyDelete
  91. It's so cute that GD is forever Haru's oppa, while the rest of Big Bang are in samchon territory. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  92. Why should they get criticized ? Done something wrong ? Why them and not the other guests ? LOL

    ReplyDelete
  93. Ratings

    ReplyDelete
  94. Tablo doesn't have to take her at YG or at a YG event everytimes though.
    the other dads don't bring their childs to work at every episodes.
    it's not like if it's a 24/24 tv-show, they have one or two days of filming per week at most, he just has to not work on these days and do something else with his daughter.
    if he really can't and if he really is that busy then it's maybe better for him to quit the show.
    but doesn't Haru have to go to school anyway ? how old is she ?

    ReplyDelete
  95. Though, I do like big bang and 2ne1, I guess it does get annoying in general with too many guests. I was not even a big fan of heechul/kangin and snsd visiting, though they were only there for 1 or 2 episodes, so it was tolerable. but, seeing recurring guests does get annoying and I'm mainly saying this from an objective point of view. The netizens are not wrong in saying what they do because the show is mainly about kids and when you don't get to see more random guests/artists instead of kids (though obviously they are still interacting with the kids), it becomes too much. Though, YG is tablo and Jang dad's agency, so it's understandable but Superman should keep the amount of artists showing up on the show to a minimum, especially for the viewers who just want to see the kids!

  97. Yeah exactly, I feel that the YG exposure in Superman is inevitable bcuz of their own schedule that clashed.

  98. lol i was going to comment but seeing the upvotes and replies this article seems pretty filled with biased comments.
    why bother ? have fun ^^

    ReplyDelete
  99. I don't think this netizen meant to criticised CSH nor Japan. He/She is just trying to emphasise how absurd this article was to criticise YG.

    What do you expect the cameraman should do when Haru herself wants to meet Bigbang and Tablo has to work at YG Fam concert or at the studio with Epik High? Should cameramen stop filming?

    ReplyDelete
  101. lol. I get you, but I still commented. For once, I agree with knetz! Too many guests!

    ReplyDelete
  102. I guess the YG boycott of KBS doesn't apply to Superman Returns lol. Sad that you see more of a performance of YG artists on this variety show than you do on an actual music show on the network.

    ReplyDelete
  103. But this is centred around Haru.
    She likes BigBang and 2ne1.
    She knows their songs.
    She gets shy in front of BB boys.
    She has fun with 2ne1 girls.
    They aren't forcing her to meet these people.
    She wants to meet them and interact with them
    Haru enjoys YG artists music.

  104. Maybe they want Tablo to not go to work and shit and just stay at home all day everyday. I dont know why they're so surprised and offended, Tablo works for YG, since the beginning this was bound to happen. The one with Jang Hyun Sung was unforeseen coz he transferred companied in the middle of the show, but can they do? Force Tablo to not bring Haru or tell SIB pds to not film when he's working, kinda dumb, this issue is kinda dumb

  105. I'm saying in general, it's not just regarding yg family, even the other guests! As a regular viewer of superman, it does get quite annoying. because all I want to see are the kids! and I'm not saying cut the guests off completely, limit them! (limit their screen time and amount of guests you show in this case! It's not hard to film different kind of things for haru and jang brother. Just an opinion. (I guess I shouldn't have commented in this tiger's den? lol)

    I'm a fan of this show too. It is tolerable for me to bring in guest as long as the dads are CLOSE to the guest cuz sometimes it gets boring with the expected dad-child interactions. Some random guests they brought are a bit too much and awkward cuz they seem to be not that close with the dads.
    Imo it's ok for Haru's interaction with Bigbang and 2NE1 since she is comfortable and close to them while Goo Hye Sun and Jang Hyun Seung part seems forced.

  107. If they don't promote YG, they don't get screen time at all.

    ReplyDelete
  108. i used to really like this show in the beginning but now its gotten a bit boring for me (with the new addition, too much guests etc.....)

    ReplyDelete
  109. lol the hypocrisy of your comment !

    ReplyDelete
  110. I understand. and I loved it when haru met big bang for the first time, but then recently the whole Yg family appearance, including goo hye sun (again, understanding it's a tour and all, so It can't be helped), but I sort of understand why viewers would feel like not watching because they don't really care because they are not a fan? I find hard to connect with such random interactions? Again that's just me though, different strokes for different folks!

    lol but this is about SIB supposedly promoting YG tho. The article is not talking "in general". If it was, I would have agreed, too many guests gets annoying too.

    But this article....
    Tablo is working during this episode. What do they expect?

    ReplyDelete
  112. Yes, obviously, SIB is not really "promoting" YG, lol. I was only agreeing with the fact that there are too many guests and SIB should limit it.

    ReplyDelete
  113. ikr? It's weird how KBS will allow YG music and YG concert scenes, but then at the music shows YG artists aren't there in their promotion periods. Maybe it's YG's decision to not allow YG artists on the music show though... (what is it Music Bank? Music Core? I don't even know bc YG artists aren't on either.)

    ReplyDelete
  114. I dont think they complain about Haru. I think it's because in the episode also the Jun brothers were in the YG building. I guess people found that to be too much. People didn't seem to be complaining when only Haru met them. Meh, I can kinda see why they'd find it annoying, but I like the show too much to not like seeing all the artists XD

    ReplyDelete
  115. Lol. All understandable. I'm not limiting my comment to haru and YG if you read it again. It's a general comment regarding the amount of idols, or even random guests in general they bring in.

    ReplyDelete
  116. Bald Mr.WorldwideJune 2, 2014 at 2:41 AM

    yea I understand you. It's ok to express your view as a viewer. I guess KBS thought it would be fresh and interesting to bring Haru to the backstage of YG Family concert since she can watch her dad and her bias to perform(correct me if Tablo didnt perform on the concert cuz I havent catch up to the latest episode).

    ReplyDelete
  117. AT LEAST WE GET TO SEE WINNER


    COME ON

    ReplyDelete
  118. I starting to think NB users just like being contrary to whatever opinion Korean netizens have. In the minds of NB users, k-netizens are ALWAYS WRONG ALL THE TIME ABOUT EVERYTHING even though they watch the show too and their opinions are just as valid.

    ReplyDelete
  119. tablo works at YG duh so what's w the fuss. Pretty sure it'd be the same if tablo is in any other companies. Kang hyejung even mentioned before that tablo usually stays at the studio for days but went home just for the sake of the show. This means that haru gets to meet and have quality time w her father thanks to this show. Tablo chose to be in the show despite knowing that he's going to be busy for the album preparations, concerts etc. All the dads have their own life too. They have jobs and being on the show doesnt mean that they can't meet w ppl and just stay at home taking care of the kids. it's acceptable then for tablo or any of the fathers to bring their kids to work place. Plus, we can see that haru enjoys meeting all the oppas and unnies 😊

    ReplyDelete
  120. I can understand the frustration with Superman but what's happening on Roommate is totally different. While Superman actually dedicates a decent amount of airtime on the YG artists ( although techinically BB was only on there twice - the first appearance wasn't even lengthy), Roommate focuses the preview around Bom because it'll entice viewers to tune in the following week - reality is, Bom's airtime on the actual show is a bit in the beginning and then holding off until the last 10 min. of the show....the main focus of the show seems more centered on romantic relationships (which is bloody annoying since they make the biggest fuss out of every single insignificant thing)

    ReplyDelete
  121. Smh the concept for both shows is different. In Appa Odiga the families went for a vacation faraway from their home and workplace while in SIB they basically just filming their everyday lives (and maybe occasional vacation in between)

    ReplyDelete
  122. Lol yes. Even junseo thought of her as the dog trainer

    ReplyDelete
  123. "Jang Hyun Sung and his management team just recently transferred to YG....why the hell would you expect him to be close with anyone under YG "

    This is why they are getting criticized, YG is forsing the interaction

    ReplyDelete
  124. I was fine with YG guests, and didn't even notice that they were promoting. But then Goo Hyesun comes out of nowhere and I'm like... yap definitely scripted to promote her new drama. But then again, I like having random guests on Superman:)

    ReplyDelete
  125. I agree . I like the interactions with YG people . It kinda shows us a diff side to the yg family . 😁

    ReplyDelete
  126. every other korean show rn has an exo member in it can i complain that its too much sm promotion?

    ReplyDelete
  127. What a delulu comment, do you think they would be at the place they are now without the constant media play? put them in no promotion for 1 or 2 year and see.

    ReplyDelete
  128. I love the episode where Goo Hyesun appeared . She is super pretty and when Junseo actually calls her the dog trainer HAHAHAHAHA
    Its actually pretty funny .
    Like idk . I like the guests because i mean like we can't watch the dad and their child every week only right ?
    It kind of bring more fun to the show .
    P/S: Although YG got a lot of 'promotion' out of this , idk but im kind of annoyed by the extra screentime Sarang gets compared to the rest ._.

    ReplyDelete
  129. lol idk why but I'm slowly leaving this show. it's not as fun as the old episodes, so I just watch Sarang and the twins' cuts.

    ReplyDelete
  130. This actually seems so petty, why isn't Sarang criticised for having guests after being visitted by Rain? SNSD? They're making it as if YG's the only one milking the hell out of this show

    ReplyDelete
  131. This is ridiculous Rain was there, SNSD were there, Kangin and Heechul were there too but no one said shit. Why even speak up about this occasion not like Tablo asked them to come out of nowhere this was at the YG Family Concert you can't expect not to see the artists.

    ReplyDelete
  132. But... I like having YG artistes on the show. Heh.

    ReplyDelete
  133. they are doing it just for high rating is normal yet too much! as one comment said 2ne1 and big bang seems to be on every episode...

    ReplyDelete
  134. Please, at least they know each other, how weird was that ep with SNSD and the others, not the child nor the parents knew them and they just went to their home. This was filmed on Tablo's workplace, i haven't seen BB going to Haru's home. And let's not exaggerate, cause they show all of them in just few minutes...

    ReplyDelete
  135. OMG YES THISSSS


    It would be logical if Haru didn't like BIGBANG and 2NE1 in the first place but she's like their biggest fangirl ever. and plus BIG BANG and 2NE1 appeared like only in 2 episodes, and that's because they're on tour. the first one was during BIGBANG's concert and Haru's like GD's fangirl so we kinda wanna see them together. then the latest episode was because Tablo/Epik High joined the tour so of course they'll be filming there.


    but i kinda agree with Jang Hyung Sung's part in which he went to see Goo Hye Sun and AKMU (talking about random meeting). but then the same way can be said about Lee Hwi Jae with his sportsmen buddies as well as Chu Sung Hoon with SNSD just because Sunny said she likes Sarang.

    ReplyDelete
  136. Atleast 838 down voted though! lol

    ReplyDelete
  137. yeah luckily thats a plus XD

    ReplyDelete
  138. Back then, ppl were saying the same thing about SM when Suju and SNSD guested on the show. Maybe YG took it upon themselves to shove their artists too considering they have Tablo as their connection. Just that now, it's gone too far...

    ReplyDelete
  139. It's Music Bank :) Music Core is MBC

    ReplyDelete
  140. That is what we called brutally honest..lol..

    ReplyDelete
  141. Have they run out of subjects?I doubt that BB or SNSD are in so much need of being promoted.You don't like,you don't watch.

    ReplyDelete
  142. people tends to critics... i just want to watch the kids...never care about the guests... watching them made my sunday.. if you don't like it, don't watch it... why make fuss???

    ReplyDelete
  143. lol, you can't really say the so many YG's are guests. they happen to be there. well it was different stories in the case like snsd or suju's.

    ReplyDelete
  144. i totally agreed with you. it really rare to see abundant of YG's on KBS channel, considering the past issues between YG and KBS. i don't understand this 'promoting' thing..haha, it so sound stupid.

    ReplyDelete
  145. well it sure seems awkward. but it was not about her but her dog. Jang papa want to 'borrow' her dog to overcome his son's fear of dog. she just sat in their house for a moment not for the entire episode right? anyway, Jang papa already told in the interview that Go Hye Sun happen to be his hobae and she was near by shooting for drama, so he called her over.

    ReplyDelete
  146. HAHAHAHAHAHAH OH MY GODDDDD I WAS LIKE ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING WHILE WATCHING THIS XDDDDD
    Thank you so much for sharing LOL
    I haven't watched Superman in a few months but I REALLY HAVE TO GET BACK INTO IT LOOOOL

    ReplyDelete
  147. as a big bang stan, its never too much for me tbh

    ReplyDelete
  148. But haru's dad and mom both work in YG! Plus Epik High is in the middle of YG family tour ! Where do you want them to film? All the options seem to have something to do with YG since it's the parents' workplace (and probably the friends' too)
    I don't this netizen meant they should criticize Chu Sung Hoon, they meant if they arn't criticizing them for being where they LIVE, then shouldn't critcize table and his wife for being in their WORKPLACE!
    (Tho i'm not denying there are some forced things, but these forced interactions are done with ALL the children, Haru is no exception !)

    ReplyDelete
  149. Bitch please there are episodes in which tablo gets less than 20 mins time and others have like 25-30 mins !!!!

    ReplyDelete
  150. I knew this would come out ! Too bad for YG but it was too obvious.

    ReplyDelete
  151. They are putting too much into it. If there is something to complain about, it should be Haru and Tablo's screentime.

    ReplyDelete
  152. I really miss the first episodes of this show. Having too many guests lessens the screen time of Dads interacting with their children.

    ReplyDelete
  153. 6. [+79, -16] 'Dad' is way more fun to watch lately than 'Superman'. I watch for Sarang but there are too many guests. KBS varieties love guests, it's like they can't run a show without them.



    Lol, so true. KBS varieties love guest appearances. it's as if the PD-nims have a monthly quota of guests that have to appear, otherwise they'll be axed.

    ReplyDelete
  154. SERIOUSLYY!!! the moms leaving and coming home is probably my favorite part of the show

    ReplyDelete
  155. jeez it just coincided that tablo was at yg fam concert and jang hyun sung was at YG building this one episode. stop being stupid and narrow minded.

    ReplyDelete
  156. expect more YG artists on tv this year... and prepare for it!

    ReplyDelete
  157. Haha I was thinking just yesterday after watching the cuts that the public sure must be getting their fair share of Bigbang (and being bowled over by their awesomeness I might add ^^) and this comes up. I know I may be biased since there can never be too much Bigbang for me but it's not like the appearances are without any reference. Tablo is a YG artist who happens to perform at the concert shown and it's only natural that they would film there. And as for showing Bigbang, Haru obviously fawns over GD hence him being featured a lot. The child has an innocent crush on the guy for crying out loud ^^ Awesome TV material especially since the object of the crush is a heartthrob who has great ratings pull. But yeah, I do get that they show a lot of YG.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Lol People need to know that YG is a business regardless of what they think of YG. In this industry, there is no such thing as too much media plays.

    Let say you have a business, you will do everything to promote your product which in this case is the artist otherwise no one will know what is the product or it even exist. That is why when people said that a business should not promote or media play too much , i find it funny.

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  162. His wife doesn't work at YG anymore. She's an actress under CJES I believe.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Remember when Haru was asked if she knew if her papa was a singer and she said yes? when asked to sing one of his songs, she said 'Ringa linga ling, ringa linga ling'. it cracks me up every time.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Haru had just turned 4 last month. She's actually smart and tall for her age

    ReplyDelete
  165. Did it not occur to you or anyone else that these are celebrity kids and their parents don't hang out with ordinary people? Their friends and colleagues are other people in the entertainment industry. How many times can we watch Choo Sarang eat grapes without getting bored?

    ReplyDelete
  166. Hyun sung needs to expose his boys to more than that apartment. Both of them have a lot of phobias. Junseo is spoiled rotten. He's almost 7.

    ReplyDelete
  167. Will there ever be a show people won't have the urge to criticize??? I'm taken aback by the comments on Roommate and now this... smh.

    ReplyDelete
  168. Helloooo this is KBS and YG does it explain anything?

    ReplyDelete
  169. Haru's interaction is still relevant, cause Tablo's YG, she enjoys herself, we get to see the way Kang seungyoon gets pawn (kidding XDD ) ROFL at this part.

    But the Goohyeseon part is a bit awkward.. is she really good friends with Jun woo and Jun seo's dad??

    ReplyDelete
  170. Haru did go to kindergarten and is pretty smart. If we are going to talk about school, let's talk about how Junu can keep up doing this show and still be number one in his school, shall we?

    ReplyDelete
  171. Haters, haters everywhere. Tablo works in YG, obviously this would happen.

    ReplyDelete
  172. She actually sang "Tomorrow". The taeyang's part and tablo was like....."that's my song but that's taeyang's part". Here's the video; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DHrlSUDtx-A

    ReplyDelete
  173. but she still has great relationship with YG artists. In the latest episode where Kang Hye Jung went into Bigbang room and screamed was hilarious!

    ReplyDelete
  174. Haru had been promoting SM dungeon girl group tho https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XEgFkrWC54Q

    ReplyDelete
  175. I love this show so if more guests needed to keep the show going, let it be ..
    As long as I can see original casts ..
    I skip Yakkung's part, his father is the most boring person ever came to SIB .. He narrated much but his son didn't even listen/ understand ..
    For me, Hwi Jae and Hyun Sung's guests are "the worst"..
    I want more Sarang and twin's moms screentime ..

    ReplyDelete
  176. LOL I like it !, and well ... haru is the one that always asked for GD, she is soooo cute!...and she losves 2ne1 songs

    ReplyDelete
  177. You do realize that Sarang is the one that brings in the viewers. She is the most popular one out of all the children. I also believe it is the reason why the show is still going. I have to disagree with Sarang bringing in irrelevant guests. In my opinion all of them have brought in irrelevant guests.

    ReplyDelete
  178. +1,175, -838] Tablo works at YG. Then why is Chu Sung Hoon not being criticized for promoting Japan? This seems petty.

    love this comment
    idk you can hate and say its "promotion",but you can't fake/script a kid's feelings or words, (when they are that young).. haru genuinely feels at home where her dad works, (and her love for gd is so cute and obvious haha) tablo even once said he can live again because of haru's happiness/presence/smile and his wife... don't hate la, be a tad bit understanding...

  179. Don't care. Only care about seeing the cuties

  180. they take the bait journalist throw their way too easily... I just cant with people ranting for everythiiing! Tablo works at YG so whats weird about them going there?? Haru pretty much has spent half her life there in the YG building lol Andd Tablo was performing in the concert they showed! ppl def see what they wanna see

    ReplyDelete
  181. The show's ratings are actually declining and it is likely because the show is already repetitive even with all the guests it brings in. They don't really bring in high ratings. Look at Daddy where are you going, the show is back at the top.

    I'd say right now the viewers of the show want more children focused episodes because in the end this show is about the children and their father's raising them. At least it was. Having guest is fine and the complaints about YG being a huge focus is fair especially since people probably saw the Goo Hye Sun segment. I think the audience wants to get back to the father's with their children rather then seeing a whole bunch of people making cameos. The article is merely focusing on YG because it is the easiest target.

    ReplyDelete
  182. "3. [+1,175, -838] Tablo works at YG. Then why is Chu Sung Hoon not being criticized for promoting Japan? This seems petty."

    This makes no sense, it's not as if Chu Sunghoon is shown interacting with famous Japanese people or ~promoting Japanese culture in a way that would offend Korean sensibilities.

    didn't Jang Hyun Sung join YG though?

  185. I honestly thought is was a yg funded program.

    ReplyDelete
  186. how are they forcing the interaction? He's only interacted with YG twice....MAYBE that's a useable excuse for calling Goo Hyesun over bit for akmu, the brothers like akmu --> the brothers are on the show ---> them meeting akmu shouldn't be a surprise

    ReplyDelete
  187. Ppl just too sensitive man. If you dont like tablo-haru or that promotion part, just turn off your tv and turn it back when its over.

    ReplyDelete
  188. Its funny how I netizens are saying "if you don't like it then don't watch" but will moan and groan when the ratings drop like a cement brick thrown in a lake LOL. K-netizens are usually regular viewers that contribute to the ratings. Your views do not contribute to the ratings. If Knetizens complain, it matters. If you complain, it doesn't matter. Why? Because you don't contribute to the ratings LOL

    ReplyDelete
  189. It's just the last few episodes has GD in it. Maybe 2 episodes if you ignore name mentioning and previews. I really love watching Haru part more than other kids and only lately it gets fresher because of Haru x GD thing. I like it and I'm not even Big Bang fan.
    So, saying "again and again" is quite an exaggeration.

    I don't give two shits whether they're promoting YG or not, as long as I can watch Tablo family be happy~~~

    ReplyDelete
  190. I started watching the show for Sarang but I found myself only watch the
    twins now. Hwi Jae also has a lot of guests coming but they seem to be
    more relevant and fun to watch. tbh I think the dads should focus more
    on how to spend their precious time with their kids, which seems to be
    disappeared in Dad ss2. I hop Superman would do better in keeping their concept.
    Btw, Yakkung family is so cute, hope this couple will bring a fresh image.

    ReplyDelete
  191. I like when Haru meets BB and 2ne1 and to be honest I feel like that's what gets her decent screen time. If it wasn't for those meetings I'd be watching Sarang eat 65 % of the show 5% the Jang brothers and Haru and the rest would be the twins dad either talking about sports, talking to athletes, or talking about how difficult it is to have twins and that gets boring really fast.

    ReplyDelete
  192. When sarang or the twins have guests i find it still funny but when Haru & the Jang brothers have guests i find it boring (even though i love big bang). I try to watch their parts because i feel sorry for them but they are boring to me.
