INFO

Qualifications of Men replaced the second season of Immortal Music Classics in late March 2009. It is a show where a group of mostly middle-aged male celebrities try to complete missions (deemed to be of a quality required of a “qualifying man”) given by the Producer or sometimes thought of by the members.

The show is widely popular and has been steadily increasing in ratings. In the first episodes, the cast joked that their primary aim was not to disturb 1 Night 2 Days. However, the show was an unexpected success and rivaled their sister corner 1N2D in the KBS Entertainments Award 2009.

The cast includes the main MC Lee Kyung Kyu, who has made his comeback into the Korean TV industry with this show; Kim Gook Jin, a famous comedian who recently came back from attempting to become a professional golfer; Kim Tae Won, leader of the legendary rock-ballad band Boohwal; Lee Yoon Seok, a comedian known for his doctor’s degree and conversely his ridiculously weak strength (Though, since commencing this show, Kim Tae Won virtually took over his title of “Weakling of the nation”); Yoon Hyung Bin, a famous comedian from the show Gag Concert who frequently compares himself to Lee Jung Jin, although often without much avail; Yang Joon-Hyuk, one of the greatest players in Korean Baseball history and currently holds the records for home runs, RBI, and best batting average; and Jeon Hyun-moo, a KBS news announcer and reporter known for his variety and comedic skills, who is rising in the entertainment world (Also for his SHINee’s “Lucifer” parody dance).

The cast has been through a variety of physically and emotionally taxing missions, usually spanning over 24 hours, performing the likes of serving mandatory military service again, crying, becoming employees of random companies, not smoking for a day, wake-boarding, singing in a choir, participating in an amusement park parade show, and forming an amateur band.

On late 2010, Kim Sung Min was dropped from the program, as he was arrested for the drug use. As of January 24, 2011, he is currently serving 2 years and 6 months in prison for his meth use and smuggling.

As of April 10, 2011, Korean Baseball legend, Yang Joon-Hyuk, made his debut as a member of the show.

As of May 8, 2010, Lee Jung-jin appears in his final episode and Jeon Hyun-moo becomes the newest and 7th member of the show.

The face of the show

  1. Gerri Larsen

    For starters, I’m from the “States,” which is mentioned a lot in Korean dramas. I’m 83 years old and I discovered Asian TV (specifically Korean dramas, etal) about a year ago. Initially, my interest was centered in possibly picking up the Korean language (thus far, I’ve learned about 25 words. During this year-long fascination, I have fallen in love with the genre, not to mention the very handsome korean male actors. However, “Qualifications of Men” is my absolute favorite. This last “gig” about the Youth Chorus has had me totally enraptured and also very envious (jealous is too harsh a word). I have laughed and cried and marvelled at the talent that was exhibited. I look to forward to the Youth Chorus’s premier performance.
    P.S. Being 83 doesn’t make me less vain. I’m enthralled with the exquisite Korean female complexion. It seems no matter what the age, these women display that wonderful porcelain facade. My best to you all. Gerri Larsen, Pleasanton, CA.
