More Show Me the Money 6 Judges and Participants Confirmed

Dynamic Duo as Judges and Sleepy as a Participant

According to the “Show Me the Money” production team, Dynamic Duo’s Gaeko and Choiza will be joining the show as judges. They’ve been getting offers to join the show from the very first season, but this is the first time the two will be on the show as judges.

Dynamic Duo told reporters that they would like to have fun on the show and are looking for artists they can support for a long career rather than becoming temporarily famous for collaborating with talented rappers. 

Other producers that have already been confirmed include Tiger JK and Bizzy, as well as Block B’s Zico and DEAN.

Meanwhile, rapper Sleepy will be joining the show as a participant. Sleepy said that he doesn’t have too high of an expectation, and just wants to be recognized as Untouchable’s Sleepy. Sleepy mentioned in a previous Radio Star appearance that he had been thinking about going on “Show Me the Money” for quite some time, so this should be interesting.

This season’s Show Me the Money is bringing in the big guns. They’re not playing around with Tiger JK and Gaeko.

If Dynamic Duo comes on, I bet someone will make a jab about Sulli in their lyrics. 

Wow. Dynamic Duo . . . this season’s producers are crazy good.

Wow, it’s a jackpot.

It’ll be perfect as long as there’s no Swings. 

Our Life School Confirms Six Member Cast

Kim Yong-man, Ahn Jung-hwan, Jeong Jun-ha, Jeon Hye-bin, Lee Hong-ki, and Kwak Dong-yeon to Join Our Life School

tvN is currently planning the first variety show to combine elements of a “real variety” and “lecture.”

This show will be based on the concept that people need education for life. Each episode will invite teachers from various stages of society into a classroom where they will answer questions and teach students about topics that they didn’t learn about in school. They will also go on field trips related to the students’ questions to seek answers.

Fixed “students” include Kim Yong-man, Ahn Jung-hwan, Jeong Jun-ha, Jeon Hye-bin, Lee Hong-ki, and Kwak Dong-yeon. 

Because the show will explore topics such as understanding yourself, making good decisions, conversation skills, and interpersonal skills, it will be not only entertaining, but also an opportunity for viewers to learn and grow. 

tvN drew influences from French novelist Alain de Botton’s The School of Life which was established in 2008 in London. It’s a school for adults that teaches about work and love, conflict and death, philosophy and art, religion, politics and society, and various other subjects in the humanities. The school also has branches in Paris, Amsterdam, Melbourne, and the tenth branch is located in Seoul’s Yongsan District. The principal of that school is Son Min-na a former news anchor and travel writer. 

“Our Life School” will begin airing in mid May. It will be produced by PD Son Chang-woo who’s worked on “Infinite Challege” and “Lazy Hitchhikers’ Tour de Europe.”

Kim Yong-man and Jeong Jun-ha kekeke

Lee Hong-ki and Kwak Dong-yeon will be fun. I’m looking forward to the Modern Farmer actors 10,000 times. kekekekeke

There are a lot of programs with lectures these days. and I think they are informative. I hope Life School is a good show too. 

If Ahn Jung-hwan can’t control Jeong Jun-ha’s temper, the show is going to fail. He doesn’t know how to act his age and just throws tantrums like a kid. Or why doesn’t he just make some kimchi pancakes?*

*reference to an episode of Infinite Challenge

I’m already getting tired of Ahn Jung-hwan.

Infinite Challenge Films First Chase Special Following 7 Week Hiatus

According to Ten Asia, the cast of Infinite Challenge filmed a chase battle on April 13th, near and around the Yeoido Districtin Seoul. Locals witnessed the cast members wearing grey suits and being chased by men in black hoodies. 

According to witnesses, these men wore cosplay glasses, black frame glasses, etc to symbolize the various cast members as if they were their shadows. 

Past Infinite Challenge’s chases specials such as “Run Away with the Money Bag,” “Pimple Break,” “Catch the Tail,” and “Infinite Challenge Wanted Dead or Alive” all had positive reviews, so expectations are high for this first chase special following their seven week hiatus. 

Infinite Challenge currently airs on Saturdays at 6:25 PM.
