And so here’s the final chapter for Nell’s Gravity Trilogy. They released an album over a year ago called “Holding on to Gravity” and a second album called “Escaping Gravity”. “Newton’s Apple” seems to be the final chapter of their 6th studio release. “Newton’s Apple” is a two-disc release and the songs on the first disc are new while the second disc is made up songs from its previous two chapters.

The good thing about moving these posts to the end of the week is that I am able to write more about dramas as I felt that my Monday posts were skewed towards variety programming most of the time. We’ve started some new dramas this week and one of which is 3 Days. After watching the previews, I had been trying to avoid reading the synopsis and character bios as I just wanted the merit of the drama alone to grab. Certainly there’s a bevy of stars with impressive résumés that make me hopeful about the drama but I didn’t expect the drama to captivate me from the get go.

Riding off the success of Grandpas Over Flowers, comes Na PD’s next hit for TVN, Noonas Over Flowers featuring veteran actresses with their Luggage Boy Lee Seung Gi. I know I’m way overdue for this review but thought it might still be worth writing as the latest season of Grandpas Over Flowers doesn’t start until this Friday. I’m looking forward to their trip to Spain which should provide lots of laughs but until then let’s take a look back at Lee Seung Gi’s trip with the ladies.

I’m back from vacation. The Winter Olympics are over and the hopes that preempted programming would help me catch up by now… and I’m still working on that. I’m almost caught up and I know I owe you some reviews which I hope to get to in one fell swoop this weekend. However if you’re confused about seeing a Bananas post today, no, the world hasn’t gone upside down. I mentioned on Monday that I am trying a new schedule out. I’m wrapping up the week now with my fangirl item(s) of the week and hoping the playlist posts would jumpstart your week with a new track. As for this week, let’s talk sitcom and dramas…
