Unscripted drama is sport competition.
If you agree with me, moreover love to watch amateurs gradually hone their teamwork and skills, try to watch Cool Kiz on the Block a.k.a. Our Neighborhood Arts and Physical Education. Cool Kiz on the Block (or starts from now, I’m going to write it as CKOTB) is a Korean variety show that facing off Korean celebrities with local sport clubs/sportsmen/sportswomen to compete in various sport. It aired first on April 9th, 2013; featured Kang Ho-Dong (MC and former Ssireum wrestler), Lee Soo Geun, and Max Changmin (idol, DBSK) as main hosts and other guests to form the Cool Kiz team.
I’ve watch its first episode, the table tennis one, through KBS World Channel. I got hooked because I always like work hard to success drama. The show is getting better and better by showing us a balance between comedy and the seriousness of Cool Kiz team. Up until this article posted, there are three sports that has been played: Table Tennis, Bowling, and, the latest (hopefully not least), Badminton.
Wew, I can’t help to root for the Cool Kiz in every competition, especially in this Kang Ho-Dong + John Park vs Busan’s team badminton match. OMG…
For you who don’t have access to TV Cable like me, KBS World is kind enough to upload the CKOTB english subbed episodes (from 3rd episode until the latest) on their Youtube official channel here.
Has anyone watch CKOTB? What do you think?
I hope you’ll enjoy the show like me.
