[ENG SUB] Weekly Idol E280/281: SECHSKIES

You might be wondering how I ENDED UP BECOMING a SECHSKIES fan.

I was around 10 years old (year 2007) when I got to got addicted to the Korean culture. I was browsing YouTube for funny videos when I stumbled upon a clip (luckily with English subtitles) of this Korean show. It was the early Korean variety show called X-Man (X-맨) where all the famous MCs and entertainers now used to be in  (including Yoo Jaesuk, Kang Hodong, Park Myungsoo, Kim Jongmin, Kim Jongkook, Haha, and many more).

This was probably why I have always been a fan of older generation K-pop idol groups. The very first group I got into was H.O.T. (Yes, I know, I feel so old now), although they already disbanded by that time. And then I learned of their rival group, SECHSKIESI became a fan because of their leader, Eun Jiwon, who was a fixed cast in the variety shows I enjoyed the most such as Jihwaza (작렬! 정신통일), Come To Play, and 1N2D. I also liked how expressive the lyrics of their songs were, and how extremely different they were from the other idol groups at that time.

After some time though with the emergence of various new groups such as Super Junior and Big Bang, I sort of forgot about SECHSKIES because it felt like they weren’t coming back as a group specially since so many years have already passed. So when Infinity Challenge announced the reunion project for the group, it came off as a great shock to me. I mean, who would have imagined that an idol group that suddenly disbanded 16 years ago would make a comeback? Watching them interact and perform as a whole group again and surrounded by all their fans (who have grown up as adults just like them) felt nostalgic. Just last week, I even almost bought myself a ticket to their Busan concert since I’ll be in Korea again this winter break (but the VIP tickets got sold out too fast aww). Wish I could see them in the award shows, though (if they come).

As soon as I saw the preview of their guesting in Weekly Idol, I promised myself I would sub the show as fast as I can. This was my way of gratitude towards the members for fulfilling the fans’ dreams of having them reunite as a group, and also so they could gain new fans. It took me exactly 2 days to translate and soft-sub everything, and luckily I was able to find a very HD raw video (720p in 60 frames per second, the quality is so good I’m shaking).

So yeah, thanks for listening to my personal story! Here are the links (download and streaming) for SECHSKIES’s Weekly Idol episode:

    Glad to know there are some fellow Yellowkies. When i read your sentence “I feel so old” haha actually you’re not too old if you was born as the same year Sechkies born,too. I’ve been a huge fan of Shinhwa but never really got into Sechkies though i’ve known some of them for long time. But since they appeared in Infinity Challenge, i’ve been stalking them everytime everywhere. lol..

    Thank you so much for subbing this! i’ve been a long time fan of Eun Ji Won and only know a couple of other members such as duo J-Walk but through your vids I’ve gotten to know the rest of Sechkies too. They are so fun to watch! Been a fan of Shinhwa but never really got into H.O.T or Sechskies. Now going to start hunting Sechkies variety shows. =)
