I have to admit that I’ve haven’t been loving this season’s episodes of Sherlock.  I’m not sure if it’s because we’ve waited so long for a new season and I’ve been building up my anticipation for it.  However, the first two dull episodes of this season have been building up towards this finale’s explosive end.

Happy Friday the 13th of the new year.  There’s no doubt that VIXX’s Ravi is very talented and so I was delighted that he finally put out his solo album.  Ravi lends his writing and composing talents to all of the tracks on the album.  As I listen to the songs on the album, I can’t help but smile because the content of the lyrics are immature.  After all, Ravi is still very young.  However, they also poetic in the way he expresses his thoughts and exude his well-known charisma.

[Review] This Week, My Wife’s Having an Affair – 이번주, 아내가 바람을 핍니다

COUPLES THERAPY

Do Hyun Woo (Lee Sun Kyun) is a television producer who has been married to his wife, Jung Soo Yeon (Song Ji Hyo), for seven years.  Despite believing that his marriage was impenetrable, he discovers that his wife may be on the verge of having an affair.

At first, he turns to his friends, Lawyer Choi Yoon Gi (Kim Hee Won) and Ahn Joon Young (Lee Sang Yeob) for advice as they are both married.  However, Yoon Gi is a serial cheater and savvy at finding ways from his wife, Eun Ah Ra (Ye Ji Won), from finding out.  Joon Young is also unhelpful as he always believed that Soo Yeon and Hyun were the picture perfect couple and the news of the infidelity takes an emotional toll on him.  And yet, Joon Young’s own life is full of mystery as he uses work as an excuse to get closer to a fellow colleague at work, the production crew’s main writer and divorcee, Kwon Bo Young (BoA).

To make matters worse, Do Hyun’s company is interested in making a new program all about wives who cheat on their husbands. At a loss about what to do, he turns to people on the internet for their perspective on the matter.

Just Bananas About: Week of 1/9/16

The boys are back causing mischief and chaos in the West and they’ve got two more members to join in the fun.  New Journey to the West made its debut last week on Navercast with a preview into the new season and more specifically the new members that will be joining them, WINNER’s Song Mino and Super Junior’s Kyuhyun.  Clearly, the two new members worried about joining the show because this type of variety show was new for them.  They might be good at games but they have no idea how to be underhanded and sneaky.
