[Variety] Abnormal Summit (비정상회담) - JTBC


Recommended Posts

So I like this show very much, but didn´t see any thread of this show on soompi so I decided to make one for fans to discuss \m/%EB%B9%84%EC%A0%95%EC%83%81%ED%9A%8C%EB%
Non-Summit (aka Abnormal Summit; Hangul: 비정상회담) is a television program on JTBC in South Korea. The show features a panel of eleven non-Korean men, living in Korea, who debate on various topics and "Korean culture, through the eyes of a foreigner," in a talk show format, in the Korean language. It aired on JTBC, starting July 7, 2014, on Mondays at 23:00.

I just saw ep. 9 of the show (was going through omonatheydidnt posts and then decided to click on the post) and it made me curious to see those positive comments on the show in the post.
And I watched it. And I am hooked. I never thought I could sit through a show where the cast were just sitting, and speaking the whole time, for almost 80 minutes on top of that.
I'll try to catch up on the other episodes later, but based on the teaser, I am now curious of the Chuseok special episode. haha
Thank you for the thread, @love1403 :x

3. [+130, -1] I'm so thankful to them for leaning Korean, Korean culture, and working in Korea. Of course they have their own reasons but I don't think I'd be able to do the same in a completely new country. Our country is not even an English-speaking country. They live here because they like it ㅠㅠ Thank you

4. [+45, -0] ㅋㅋㅋ Enes

5. [+42, -0] Zhang Yuan kept calling Kim Gura "dangshin" (formal word of "you") because his Korean lacks a bit and it was so funny ㅋㅋ He earned $10 a month when he had a part-time job in high school and when Takuya said his hourly pay was $10 in his high school, Zhang Yuan said"I'm pissed". Cute ㅋㅋ

6. [+40, -1] These days, Australian Daniel is not getting much screen time, it's sad ㅠㅠ I personally like smart Tyler, Zhang Yuan and Australian Daniel ㅋㅋ 

7. [+40, -0] Tyler is so cute. It's not easy to be cute and intellectually charming at the same time

8. [+31, -1] Do well ㅠㅠㅠ

9. [+31, -0] How did they choose the members so well? There isn't a person who is so-so, they're all charming and likeable. They all seem to be getting along! I hope Abnormal Summit succeeds more~

10. [+29, -0] Abnormal Summit is so funny~ I was so surprised with their ages though ㅋㅋ

Enes: "I don't have time so answer me now" "Today is my birthday so consider this as a gift for me and date me"
And they got married at the end ㅋㅋㅋㅋ

so much laughter while watching this show. they cast good members, because they all have great dynamics which keeps the show fresh and fast paced. I also love just watching non koreans speaking korean well. Makes me inspired and persevere studying korean. Hoping I could one day be like them, speaking korean confidently.
Oh and this show has Sung Si Kyung. I kinda miss him on variety shows.

I have heard about this show, but I didn't get a chance to start it until yesterday.  I'm currently on episode six, but I was hooked from episode one.  This show is funny and interesting.  Even though each member of G11 don't exactly represent how their country is, they still give valuable insights of their country and culture to allow others to know they're not what people may think they are.  I love how they can just make fun of each other one moment and then get into a hot debate without any hard feelings though.  From the emcees to the G11 members, they're all so charming in their own way, even if my opinion differs from some of them. (:

Also for people who didn´t know, I have good news. Abnormal Summit reached a whooping 6% in rating during last Chuseok special episode, and that´s such a crazy number for a cable TV show!! I think the episode peaked again at 7.8% in rating this weeks episode with John Park if I´m not wrong, since I saw Abnormal Summit post about it in their official instagram.
The show is getting soooo much love and explosive response and popularity from the public, that now more shows from the big public channels (KBS, MBC, SBS) etc. are too starting too feature more foreigners in their show in response to the explosive popularity of Abnormal Summit.
Also the cast are receiving CF offers, photoshoots and DJ, and casting gigs at many other shows too. I also heard this program has been in production and planning since 5 years ago, no wonder it´s so well executed and on point :D

And as a fan since episode 1 I´m sooo happy that G11 are getting so much love.
