Roommate (룸메이트)

Have you watch the latest variety show on SBS called Roommate (룸메이트) ? Noy yet? what are you waiting for... go watch it NOW!

Seriously, I'm not in the mood of writing or updating this blog nowadays, but thanks to this new variety show I'm back and starting hitting my keyboard again. ㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋㅋ

So what is this Roommate (룸메이트) shows any way....The show features eleven celebrities living together in a share house, sharing common spaces such as the kitchen, living room, and washrooms, as well as household tasks. The house features sixty cameras and five bedrooms. The program is a response to society today where single-person households are dramatically increasing and aims to show the life, troubles, and joys of eleven different celebrities as they form friendships, relationships and possibly enemies living together under one roof

The best part of the show is the cast is fresh, we know each one of them but we hardly got a chance to even have a glimpse of their lifestyle. They might still not showing everything but still showing us that our celebrities is just a normal person means a lot... well at least for me.

Finally, Roommate Season 1 has ended. Truthfully, I enjoyed watching Roommate and 20 episodes is not enough for me to fully understand all the members and after watching every episodes I do realize that I can't help but do feel disappoint with the editing and I do feel like most of the time it was too scripted and too much concept for all the roommates. I  hope season 2 will be much better, with less script and good editing.

Season 2

It's Okay, Roommate.

Season 2 of Roommate, with the new name It's Okay, Roommate, will be centered around the roommates dealing with their problems and following their personal lives. The cast will consist of the remaining five roommates, while others are said to be added.

Lee Dong Wook, Jo Se Ho, Nana, Park Min Woo and Seo Kang Joon will stay for the new session.
