There’s something about the start of the week that can bring your mood down almost instantly. With the weekend behind us, we’re faced with another bout of the Monday blues. It can be so severe that 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 it can be difficult to watch them all while also meeting 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.

Even if you’re stuck in the office or commuting to work, you can still make time to think about your next vacation getaway. If you don’t know where to go, you can always look at the cast of “jinny’s kitchen“to give ideas.
This week, we see castees taking turns riding jet skis and diving into the refreshingly blue ocean. While we currently cannot do it ourselves, it is cathartic and relaxing to watch them. There’s a special energy we get just living vicariously through the cast of “Jinny’s Kitchen” and it almost feels like we’re there.
2. Cha JooYoung introduces her dolls
Cha JooYoung did an amazing job in her portrayal of Choi HyeJung in the hit series “the glory“. With their huge success and such an iconic character, it can be difficult to separate the two from each other. But that’s what makes moments like this so special.
It’s a refreshing contrast to see Cha JooYoung have such a lovely side to her. Named Mimi and Mochi, the actress presents her dolls on the program “The manager“. She considers them precious friends and brings them with her everywhere. Cha JooYoung is absolutely precious and surprisingly cute – you can’t help but smile at this adorable fact.
3. ‘Like A Cat’ Dance Masterclass
If the Monday blues are getting to you, an impromptu dance session might do the trick. And even if you’re not dancing, watching others can provide the perfect energy boost to get you through the day.
On tvN’s “Amazing Saturday”, it is not uncommon for cast members and guests to have a celebratory dance performance after giving the correct answer. In this episode, we see everyone stand up and introduce themselves. TO THE‘Like a cat’. They create a flash mob type of setting and, as always, add a bit of humor in between. With clips like these, they make any day of the week look awesome and fresh.
SBS’s “No Math School Trip” is a variety show that features scenic views, fun moments, and hilarious chemistry between the castmates. EXO’s DO once again shows that he is effortlessly funny and a joy to watch.
His prank is no big deal, as he simply swaps the signs in the two rooms. But what makes it a serotonin boost is your reaction to doing so, along with your innocent giggles in between. Their positive energy is contagious and will have you smiling from ear to ear in no time. DO is a real happy virus necessary for the start of any work week.

Shin Ye Eun is an amazing actress who has nailed every role she has been given. But if you think that’s all for the K-Drama star, you’re in for a pleasant surprise!
She shows off her memorable dance moves on SBS’s “Running Man”, covering newjeans‘ ‘OMG’ and BSS‘ (SEVENTEEN) ‘Fighting’. She nailed both songs without a hitch, adding a touch of humor to her performance. Cast members of “Running Man” couldn’t help but laugh as they watched her efforts. Shin Ye Eun is a natural variety star and could probably add a part-time comedian to her repertoire.
