Also, it was really really weird. The cast was full of great people, but it seems like they did a whole bunch of generic variety stuff. It was boring because we've seen that same generic variety stuff 1000 times.

I think the producers realized this when going through the footage. They saw that the only interesting part of the show was the idols interacting with each other in the hidden booths during the lunch and drawing segments. In the end they edited the show so those segments took up most of the time.

The problem was that they still included the main variety parts, so it was a really disjointed show.

I think they should make a new pilot that is just focused on the intimate interaction between celebrity strangers/friends concept. That is really fresh and fun as long as you keep getting good combinations of guests.

I think that was a pilot episode, not a normal "episode 1"

Edit: if you check the official videos in the MBC youtube channel, the description says:

It's called 'Secret training variety show', the original program title. It's not regular broadcast yet. It's just a pilot episode.

Oppa thinking took about 4 months before it became a regular program. Both its pilot episodes had ~3% rating, so we don't know Secret Variety Training Institute's fate for sure.

Is 3% for pilot considering good?

I watched Ep1 of Oppa Thinking. I had to fast forward through half of it.

It wasn't a great episode, so no surprise it didn't turn into a regular series. For a show supposedly training in variety, it wasn't particularly funny.

the generic variety stuff is what makes it, the "fresh" lunch segment is what killed it. just becuz its new, doesn't make it good, it was just awkward, and not in a good way. the important thing is the chemistry and it was good but was canceled before things even got started. thats the trouble with stupid korean variety shows, all about gimmicks and trends instead of core values and feel good entertainment
