In the blink of an eye, the weekend is over and we are at the beginning of another work week. It may be the beginning which is always the hardest due to the Monday blues. The Monday blues is a real phenomenon that affects everyone at least once in their lives – and no amount of sleep or caffeine is enough to completely cure it. But through K-Variety Round Up, we hope to provide the perfect serotonin boost needed to combat the start of the week!
Through this series, we focus on little happenings from various Korean variety shows that you might have missed over the past week/weekend. These clips may appear on social media feeds, but absolutely everything can be difficult to watch while also catering to our busy schedules.
That’s why Kpopmap is here to bring the funniest clips to a screen near you! Now, take a look below for a little energy boost on the first day of the week.
1. GOT7 BamBam being a successful fanboy
We all dream of the day when we come face to face with our favorite K-Pop idols. The immediate joy and amazement of being in front of them is unimaginable and seems like a distant dream. But for some fans, their dream comes true – and multiple times.
It’s no secret that BamBam is a huge fan of Girls’ Generation’s Taeyeon. He has admitted the fact several times and has had a live fan interaction with her while MCing at an event in Thailand. But he managed to have another successful fanboy story on tvN’s “Amazing Saturday”. The way BamBam is unable to make eye contact and completely blushes in front of his favorite idol is so relatable and incredibly cute. Their interaction provides the perfect energy boost for this somber Monday.

Rappers are extremely charismatic, dripping from head to toe with style and confidence. The terms cute or adorable are rarely associated with your typical rapper, but MONSTA X’s JooHoney proves to be one of the exceptions.
He is able to switch from normal conversation to his famous aegyo seamlessly and without a second thought. But he wasn’t done with just one act of cuteness. He is capable of becoming a blast of aegyo as refreshing as a sip of cider. Watching him just once will make you smile from ear to ear.
3. Choi WooShik being the perfect Hypeman
Why is Wooshik bragging about his brothers SO CUTE? T~T
And the fact that these people knew who they were but quietly admired them… it’s sooo cool!

Choi WooShik has always shown how good of an actor he is in his various roles. With his accomplishments, he has certainly racked up bragging rights that could last forever. But he still remains humble and instead exalts his two close friends.
On tvN’s”jinny’s kitchen“, WooShik is a complete bro, bragging about his friends to the restaurant customers. He refers to Park SeoJun as the “Marvel guy” and V from BTS as well as a member BTS. He does it so nonchalantly, as if it’s second nature. It’s hearty, sweet, and a complete joy to watch. We all need a friend like Choi WooShik in our lives.
4. LEEJUNG being a dancing genius
Previously, the girls from “HyeMiLeeYeChaePa” were having huge problems with the choreography challenge. Fortunately, they have a choreographer like LEEJUNG from YGX as your dancing ace.
While she was just as confused as the rest of her castmates at first, LEEJUNG quickly showed why she is praised as a top-notch choreographer. In addition to her skills, her expressive reactions are priceless and cute, making her look like she just stepped out of a manhwa. LEEJUNG is a natural variety show and a lot of fun to watch.
5. BTS’s JiMin Is Bringing Unexpected Chaos
BTS is known for bringing joy, stage presence and confidence wherever they go. But on KBS'”Hong Kim Dong Jeon” BTS’s JiMin brought a bit of chaos to the set just by being himself.
Depending on their actions, the cast members of “Hong Kim DongJeon” were thrown into a pool or had a bucket of water thrown on their heads. His heartfelt conversations with the world-renowned idol were interrupted several times, inciting laugh-out-loud moments. It might not be a short clip, but you’ll easily find yourself watching it all the way to the end.
We hope that with this edition of K-Variety Round Up, your Monday blues will be cured in no time! Fighting!
