Weekly Idol (Hangul: 주간 아이돌) is a South Korean variety show, which airs at 6 PM every Wednesday nights on MBC Every1, MBC's cable and satellite network for comedy and variety shows. The show is hosted by comedian Jeong Hyeong Don and rapper Defconn.[1]


The show consists of several segments, one of which is called "Real Chart! Idol Self-Ranking", where idols are asked to rank each other on different topics and the results are then presented.

"Idol of the Week", the second segment, on the other hand features idol groups as the invited guests. The first idol group to record an episode and appear in the segment was INFINITE. This segment usually consists of several featured corners:

At these segment, the talk usually hold without too much formality, giving a chance to the hosts to give a humorous remark about the idols, or in opposite, the idols can playing around with the hosts’ lack of physical fitness and engaging in a slapstick activity with the hosts.

Started from December 31, 2011, annual year-closing episode, "Weekly Idol Award", held in the last episode of the year. In this episode, the host usually reviewed again the segments and the appearances from the guests that featured in past one year.



note: In some occasion, Jeong Hyeong Don and Defconn instead appeared as the featured guests as "Hyungdon and Daejun" with their host position replaced by fellow comedian Haha and Hyolyn & Soyou of Sistar in episode 45 and by Sungkyu & Hoya of INFINITE in episode 64.
