Just Bananas About: Week of 2/6/17

As much as I am critical of Running Man these days, the chemistry between its members is undeniable.  It actually took me a few days to watch last week’s Running Man but when I did, I just couldn’t help rolling on the floor with laughter.  Literally.

Just Bananas About: Week of 1/30/17

For those who were fans of Another Oh Hae Young, there’s another drama that started early this year that will give you the same vibes as that drama.  Introverted Boss stars Yeon Woo Jin in the title role and I’ve been meaning to watch another drama with him since I was drawn to his acting in Arang and the Magistrate.  There always seemed to be one reason or another as to why it just didn’t work out so even though I’m overwhelmed with watching dramas at the moment, I just wanted to make sure I didn’t pass this one up.

I realize that Episodes 5 and 6 have been preempted this week but there are a lot of things I like about the drama so I’m hoping that the rewrites will help the drama instead of hurt it.  The drama is about Eun Hwan Ki (Yeon Woo Jin) who deals with having severe social anxiety to the point where he has a hard time being around people outside of his immediate family and close friends.  His social anxiety cripples him as he is the head of his family’s PR and marketing company.

Just Bananas About: Week of 1/23/17

It’s the new year and we have a ton of new dramas to check out.  Missing Nine is just one of those new dramas that I was interested in checking out.  And it’s making me feel a little lost.  As in, I could see a lot of the plot and style of the American drama, Lost, in this one.  I’ll admit that I was one of those people who felt disappointed by the finale of Lost and here’s hoping that this one will have a more satisfying conclusion.

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.

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.

Happy New Year!  It’s been a mad dash for me to complete my reviews before I can put out my End of the Year TV Reports and I still got a few more to go.  If only I was better at not procrastinating… well, I suppose that’s what new year resolutions are for, right?  And still, that didn’t stop me from adding another program to watch on top of what I’m already watching.  Last year, I attempted to watch a web drama, Splash Splash LOVE, and loved it.  Each of the episodes are about 10 minutes or so in length, they don’t require much commitment and they’re often silly and entertaining.  So during the break, I was interested in doing that again and came across Seven First Kisses.
