TV Highlights: Tuesday May 2, 2017

*Note: TV Highlights is a series where I summarize content and feedback on the most popular clips from shows airing on the previous day. I only post about clips that have over 100,000 views or 500 comments on Naver’s TV Highlights. On Naver TV, there are usually less than ten video clips a day that reach that many views/comments, so these posts are the best of the best. The ratings mentioned in this post are taken from Neilson Korea – nationwide stats. 

SPOILER WARNING: On days, where there aren’t many variety shows that make the cut, I will also include clips from the past day’s most popular dramas. Do not read this post if you want to avoid SPOILERS for Korean dramas or spoiler sensitive variety shows such as “King of Masked Singer.”

So when are you going to upload the full clip for Maboy? In three days? In four days? In one week? In one month? In one year?*

(*this is a quote based on something Kahi said in episode four.)

Next time show us the bts clips for each team . . . If we get just three minutes per team, we’d get a lot of footage. What about the trainees who don’t get air time on TV or these BTS clips. :'(
