Real Men Ep 10 – Favorite moments and English Subs


Thanks to Nathania from the Real Men blog we now have English Subs for this episode http://realman-show.blogspot.com/2014/03/eng-sub-real-man-ep-10-english-subbed.html?spref=tw

Not knowing korean sucks! I’ve been waiting for Gumi to tell me exactly what was said on the latest episode of The Real Man, but she has been very busy this week. She was kind enough to send me a link to the show, so I could watch, try to guess what happened, and make these gifs. I’m also working on captures for a slideshow. Please enjoy these in the meantime, while Gumi finds the time to come to the rescue and provide us with context 😉

1.- Last one is a rotten egg!: Hyukie looks so happy winning the race against younger guys. From a distance all you can see is his grin 😀

MBC Entertainment Awards 2013 – Real Men take home some awards


I meant to post this before, but it took me the whole day to adjust to this jacket :p

Yes! this time my big trauma is this strange jacket and pants, and boots combination (I’ve made peace with the Edward Scissorhands hair). My first reaction was outrage! “unfriendly words” were directed at his stylist. But after I had a proper meal and took a much needed nap (possible real reasons for my anger) I have come to accept this look. Mind you, there were people on twitter who praised his jacket for being “different”and “original”.

Oh but what is this you ask? It is the MBC Entertainment Awards, where Variety/Reality and Comedy shows that aired on the korean network MBC during the past year, get recognized. Real Men and its members individually were nominated for different categories and brought home quite a few awards:

Kim Sooro = Excellence Award
Jang Hyuk = Popularity Award – Variety Show (shared with Noh Hong Chul from Infinity Challenge and Defconn from Alone
Hyungsik = Rookie of the year
Sam Hammington = Rookie of the year and “Person who can’t do anything right” Award (Son Ji Young got robbed!)
Seo Hyung-Suk = Popularity Award – MC (shared with Kim Gura from Radio Star) and something else I don’t know
Son Ji Young = He won something but I don’t know what
Ryu Soo Young = Same here

The Real Men team also won the Scriptwriter Award given to Happy Sunday’s Shin Myung Ji. I find it very interesting that this scriptwriter is a woman.

Here is a video put together by Zoi from the Just…Jang Hyuk blog. You can see Jang Hyuk accepting his award (He looks better walking and talking)

Jang Hyuk’s acceptance speech as translated by Soompi:

Thank you
First time at an Entertainment Award
Didn’t imagine he would win such a big award.
When he first went to Real Men, he thought it was really hard. But now he has a lot of great colleagues. Couldn’t sleep before but now he is here
Doesn’t know what to say.
Finished off the year on a high note thanks to Real Men
Thanks the staff and his colleagues
Always be healthy. Thank you

Real Men fight fire and some broken pipes – Ep 30


In episode 30 the Real Men crew learn some fire fighting skills. They also faced the challenge of sealing broken pipes in an emergency situation. This was a nerve-wracking and hilarious loooong scene, where I laughed and felt sorry for Jang Hyuk at the same time. The poor guy kept getting mercilessly slapped by water. He was unlucky enough to be paired up with Son Jin Young who is, as we know, inclined to “fail” lol.

Hi: I’m so behind with this show. Trying to catch up! Anyway, here are my highlights from eps 20, 21 and 22, during which this young man, nicknamed “child private” stole the show.

Real Men Fan Video – Hall of Fame


I did my first Jang Hyuk related Fan Video. I can’t upload this on regular video sites because the company that produces this show is very strict so hopefully this works. Just click on the image and let me know what you think 🙂 The song used is Hall of Fame by The Script.
