061001 Kind Souls

착한 녀석들… I would translate it as Kind Souls, although they can be called ‘good chaps’ or ‘kind fellas’.  I found this gag accidentally and it’s laughter is too infectious to resist!

Thanks to the 10th Year Anniversary Special, I’m rediscovering the charm of older ‘classic’ gags (and Yoo Sae Yoon! ^^)… hur-hur-hur-hahahaha >0<!!

Oct 1st was the debut episode of this skit… in 2006!

thanks to koter18님 for uploading the raw… 3 years ago! ^o^;

Kind Souls created a stir too, after they were edited away. Here’s a report by Reporter Jo Heon Soo pillarcs3@yahoo.co.kr (Media TV Report)

The arrogance of the “Kind Souls” can be seen throughout KBS 2TV’s Gag Concert. “Kind Souls” is a corner by (above, from left) Oh Ji Heon, Yoo Sae Yoon and Lee Jong Hoon, who call themselves yoogi-nom, solrin-bum and dodoknom (ok, I really don’t know how to translate it to it’s full effect. Please watch the video above ㅡ.ㅡ;)

"To the nearly non-existent fans who support Kind Souls, we thank you sincerely"

This gag is most known (notorious?) for the mocking dialogue and sneering expressions. With sinister expressions, this trio deliver their dialogue in a glib sly manner, before ending with an innocent twist. That’s how this gag goes.

For example, with heads tilted to a side, they slur, “We are the ex—tremely kind souls” and then kick a garbage bin over, the violence shocking the audience. Immediately after that, they say, “Please recycle instead.”

Gagcon will perish! Nothing is funny at all! I love Gagcon! (??)

However the corner has been acting abnormally these days.

(in song corner "Musical") "Director, I can sing too."

In main Gag Concert corners like ‘Bongsoongah Classroom’, ‘Hogu and Woolbongie’, ‘Mystery Theater’, these guys will either suddenly appear or sit among the audience with blank expressions holding placards as signs of protests. These silent protests include “Nothing is funny at all”, showing contempt to the gag being performed at the moment; there’s also a general protest “Gagcon will perish”, which caught the attention of many. Its not reserved for other gags — during fellow members’ other gag, Lee Jong Hoon even held up an anti-placard (see below).

(in gag Fashion 7080) "Oh Ji Heon and Yoo Sae Yoon is performing now, thus I have no corner again."

These actions are the characters’ protests of real-life editing out of Kind Souls in Gag Concert. What’s interesting is that their protest scenes in other gag corners were not edited out instead. (The really ‘Kind’ Souls of Gag Concert are the PDs after all.)

Because of this, there have been a flow of netizen requests that the interesting gag be reinstated.

(in gag Love Counselor) "Yoo Sae Yoon's performing now, thus I have no corner again".. "I'm finding it funny." (^x^)

However it seems that the silent protest among the audience will continue for a while. Gag Concert’s Kim Sang Mi PD said, “The corner has been halted. The gagmen and staff have discussed, and the decision is to let the corner stop for the time-being.” She continued, “The situation is always changing, so it may not be a permanent decision, but for now ‘Kind Souls’ will not be reinstated.” (ouch)

Gagmen watching from the back during Bongsoongah Classroom. I'm surprised at Yoo Sae Yoon's participation despite performing in 2 other popular gags at the time~ ^^;

깡페수업 (The Final Blow), 1996.. I'd prefer the literal translation of the title as 'Lessons of the Yakuza'
