Just Bananas About: Week of 2/20/15

Happy Lunar New Year! And Happy Oscar weekend. There’s a few more days to get in your votes for your favorite films. In other news, the producers of We Got Married have their hands full with all the scandals going on with some of their cast mates. We Got Married is an atypical show in which the cast members’ personal lives can influence the mood of the show. I like that the show tackled it head on.

Hong Jong Hyun and Yura pretty much laughed off the situation. He insisted that they were just friends and worried over Yura. She even takes out the antenna on the RC remote control to use it as a spanking tool but all in good fun.

What really makes Yura feel better is that Jong Hyun takes her out for steak as we all know she loves eating meat. She immediately begins to feel better and in honor of Valentine’s Day, she gifts Jong Hyun with chocolate and a new couple ring to match the one she exchanged.

As for Song Jae Rim and Kim So Eun, they don’t really have other activities that have been filmed but instead have a deeper conversation. Similar to the JjongAh couple, Jae Rim seems to laugh things off and asks how she’s doing while So Eun worries that the whole scandal may have stressed Jae Rim out.

She tells him that she doesn’t view Son Ho Joon as more than a friend and they were having drinks with other friends after the wedding of an acquaintance. She tells him that because of their careers there are some people who she gets along with and they often go out to relieve the stresses of their job. Jae Rim jokes that they should all eat out together. Haha, looks like he wants to size Ho Joon up, not because he doesn’t trust So Eun but I suspect to dispel some of the awkwardness. Although, I’m not sure how serious he was about that offer.

I can’t really fathom what it’s like to do a show like this because of the conservative nature of Korea. Sure, if fans like a certain celebrities, there’s that feeling that you hope those celebrities would make a good couple. However, it makes things in a way that people having drinks or dinner with the opposite sex nearly impossible without causing some kind of rumor. I think the important thing to remember is this is just a TV show and these celebrities are working when they’re in front of the camera.

The only couple not suffering a scandal happens to be Hong Jin Young and Nam Goong Min. While they initially annoyed… no, there are moments when I find their lovey-doveyness nauseating but at this point, I’m hoping they’d just become a real couple because I don’t think I’d be able to see them with anyone else. Or another way to put it is that they’ve gone so far in the lovey-doveyness that it would be wrong for them to behave that way with anyone else. Ha.
