Notes

This section is dedicated to the shows that could be tangentially related to the content we focus on, which you might find to be worth watching. This includes work that we may have worked on or not.

Crime Scene (크라임씬)

Crime Scene


Nobody move! The criminal is among us! Crime Scene is a deduction roleplay game where the cast is assigned a role in a murder case inspired by a real life event. Among them is the murderer. The non-murderers must investigate the surroundings and the testimony of the people to attempt to deduce the killer, while the murderer must use strategy and deceit to evade capture.

The cast is often accompanied by a wide range of guests in their investigation, including: Kim Sunggyu (Infinite), Pyo Changwon (Profiler), Jang Sunggyu (Announcer), and Cha Eunwoo (Idol).

Squad Notes: A very fun show, good for anyone who likes The Genius and murder mysteries. Season 1 and 2 have been subtitled by God Bumdi, and for now official subs are available for Season 3, although we are hopefully working towards making professional subtitles for that season as well, eventually.

Game of Blood (피의 게임)

Game of Blood


The creator of Money Game presents, a real survival game where players fiercely compete in mental and social games in an isolated mansion, the Mansion of Blood, to acquire a maximum prize of $300,000. The Game of Blood is an extremely unfair and illogical game. Conspiracies, betrayals, lies, and schemes are all permitted to survive.

Furthermore, a panel of 5 people will observe their gameplay and provide commentary for the audience. This panel includes…

  • The Genius, Jang Dongmin (Comedian)
  • The Black Magician, Lee Sangmin (Broadcaster)
  • The Deduction Queen, Park Jiyoon (Announcer)
  • The Hungry Duckling, Choi Yena (Idol)
  • The Money Magician, Syuka (Economic YouTuber)

Society Game’s Park Hael also makes a cameo appearance as the mansion’s butler. Idiotape, the band behind much of the iconic Genius soundtrack, is also involved in the production as music directors.

Squad Notes: An interesting viewing experience, high-quality subtitles will be released by us after the series is over, but for now the subtitles from Kocowa seem quite high-quality in terms of translation, so we recommend viewing with those first. One thing to note is that Kocowa chooses to translate using the word “Bloody” a lot when it feels like it’s a lot cooler to use “of Blood”, just so you know.

Supplementary Material

Player-Produced Show Content (Untranslated)

Accomplice (공범)

Accomplice


Produced by Quaddurup, Accomplice portrays a novel mafia game where 10 participants live together in an old youth hostel building and compete in a fierce mental battle for $100,000, where one individual can be “killed” every night.

Noteworthy participants include Oh Hyunmin from The Genius and Logic King Jeongi from Money Game.

Squad Notes: An interesting watch with some good characters you might be able to relate to from content you’ve seen. Not translated by us, but the subtitles seem good enough for your viewing experience.

Pokerface (포커페이스)

Pokerface


Korea’s first ever hold’em game show, hosted (usually) by Jang Dongmin. Throughout lots of seasons of Pokerface, a series of various participants compete in a texas hold’em tournament to determine a final winner, with formats ranging from 1v1, 2v2, and team matches. Season 1 and 2 are centred around a battle of teams between Hong “Storm Zerg” Jinho and Lim “Terran Emperor” Yohwan.

The cast varies from season to season and includes faces that you might be familiar with, such as…

  • Season 1 and 2: Hong Jinho and Lim Yohwan
  • Season 3: Hong Jinho, Oh Hyunmin, Lady Jane (Romantic Interest to Kong), Steve Yea (No. 1 Korean Poker Player)
  • Season 4 (The Final): Oh Hyunmin, Cho Junho (Judo Athlete, Society Game 2 Contestant)
  • Season 5 (Charity Event): Jang Dongmin, Oh Hyunmin, Cho Junho, Alpago Sinasi (Reporter, Society Game 2 Contestant), Park Yuri (Model and Singer, Society Game 2 Contestant)
  • Season 6 (Next Level): Jang Dongmin, Cho Junho (Incomplete)

Squad Notes: A cool show to watch if you enjoy Poker and you’re curious how some Genius or Society Game players might fare in such tournmanets. We do plan to release fully typeset subtitles for Season 1, but Season 2, 3, and 4 are likely to be left with just the official subs provided. Even though they’re not very ideal (they only translate captions and the quality isn’t very good), they should provide enough information for people who really interested in the Poker side of things, and it’d be loads of work to do. Also, the cast list for Season 6 may be updated, as they’re revealing the cast as the rounds go on. The playlists may also be poorly organised by the channel.

Miscellaneous

A small section dedicated to some of the shows that we think might be important to plug, but not signficant enough (or complete enough in English) to demand a full entry like the other products on this page.

The Stage

A high-stakes variant Monopoly game for real money starring 6 YouTubers including: Genius alumni, Hong Jinho; economic YouTuber and Game of Blood commentator, Syuka; producer of Accomplice Quaddurup; and Money Game contestants Jeongi and Hyukjoon. One mechanic is the Death Match, where players may challenge an opponent in a 1v1 game to hurt or steal their assets.

The Stage
  • A compilation of all the Death Matches involving Jinho

Player 7

A cast of comedians and TV personalities must go through various comedic situations without laughing. If they do, they lose $10 from their appearance fee and are dowsed with water. Parodying many culturally significant shows and formats, the show provides a wide range of content with a cast including Kim Donghyun and Jang Dongmin as recurring guest/host.

Player
  • A listening test from a game show parody starring Jinho as the problem, as well as Shin Ahyoung
  • One episode parodies The Genius, with Dongmin and Jinho reappearing on a mockup of the Genius set to compete as team captains in 3 battles, with the loser being dunked in a water tank. I was very disappointed by this, but if you wish to watch it yourself, look for Ep 14 (the section is towards the later half)

Don’t Be Jealous

Alternate title: “Lose If You’re Envious”. this show centres on observing and attempting to destigmatise the real open relationships of celebrities. With a peanut gallery including Jang Doyeon, one featured relationship is between Lee Doohee (Hacker-turned-software designer) and Kim Jisook (Idol from the group Rainbow).

Don't Be Jealous
  • We plan to subtitle some highlights of Doohee and Jisook’s relationship, but for now I highly recommend viewing their segments, as it’s a very satisfying and cute experience, with Jinho appearing to camp with the duo in Episode 6
