The Korean Reality Shows You Should Start Watching ASAP
What's another good thing about the Korean entertainment industry? It's their reality shows! Sometimes, reality shows can be really dramatic and exaggerated when it comes to representing the "real" world. And forgetting what reality is can be nice, too! But what we like most about K-reality shows is that they're entertaining yet they're mellow. They don't go overboard with the things they air, and that's why a lot of people really enjoy them!
- Running Man
The show that started the K-reality show craze in Asia, especially in the Philippines. Running Man has celebrity guests like Park Shin Hye, Song Joong Ki, Choi Min Ho, and 2NE1 that will compete (or be formed as a group) with the Running Man members. They will be required to complete different missions and tasks. There will also be eliminations and whoever wins takes home the prize. Every episode is certainly exciting!
- We Got Married
You think K-Dramas are the only one that can make you kilig? Nope. We Got Married is a whole different story because it's not just about two characters who fell in love; they actually pair up two celebrities that you never thought can actually be a good married couple... in real life! Although it's just a marriage that was set up and there are basically missions for the couple to complete, it's still cute! SNSD's Seo Hyun and CNBlue's Yong Hwa were one of the most popular couples to be in the show.
- The Return of Superman
If you love kids, this will make your day! The Return of Superman gives mothers a chance to unwind, while the celebrity dads take over for them. The dads need to complete the tasks their wives give them and actually spend most of their time with their children. There will also be interviews, and visits from the celebrities' friends every now and then. Who could resist such adorable kids?
- Infinity Challenge
This is the epitome of K-reality shows. Infinity Challenge has been tagged as the nation's variety show because of its success since its first airing. What we love most about this show is its fun and entertaining mood. Famous celebrities (or groups) like BIGBANG, EXO, and IU have appeared on the show.
- Happy Together
This show is known as the one of the most popular shows in Korea ever since its first airing! Over the years, fans have always been requesting their favorite Korean celebrities to appear on the show because of its pure, funny entertainment that still makes sense. LOL! They chat with their celebrity guests, and make them share some funny moments they've experienced.

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
