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.

Jive Monkey Playlist: 1/6/17

It seems that I’m still getting back into the swing of things.  I may not have finished my to-do list for 2016 but I working on that.  Despite my problem with procrastination, the members of Infinite Challenge ended 2016 with a bang as they finally revealed the tracks for their hip-hop history challenge titled, “Great Legacy”.

Just Bananas About: Week of 11/7/16

It’s a sad week (or is it?) in Korean variety shows.  Kang Gary shot his final episode of Running Man which aired yesterday.  He was half of our Monday Couple, the Jerry to Haha’s Tom and our favorite squid (oh-jing-uh).  Most importantly, he graced our screens every Sunday evening with sarcastic humor and athleticism.  He will always be considered as part of Running Man’s family but somehow that made him part of our family as well.  We may not see him every week but I’m sure that he’ll grace us with his presence again as a special guest.

As part of Infinite Challenge’s most recent challenge, they are testing the members’ five senses.  The challenge started in the 2nd part of last week’s episode.  The members show up to the studio thinking that they are going to practice for their wedding singers challenge only to be forced to wear a blindfold and a helmet.

Just Bananas About: Week of 3/21/16

Earlier this year, the Infinite Challenge members had a mission where they wrote down their wishes for another member that year.  If member was unable to get the letter out of their hidden mailbox before time ran out, then they’d have to complete the task before the end of the year.  Jung Joon Ha failed to get Haha’s letter out of his mailbox and he wrote that he wished Jung Joon Ha would audition for the rap competition, Show Me the Money.  Jung Joon Ha would have to compete against approximately 9,000 other contestants.

Just Bananas About: Week of 1/4/16

Happy New Year!  I’ve been thinking for a while that I might flip my weekly posts and what better time than to do it now?  The first fangirl post of the new year features Infinity Challenge.  If you’ve been watching the last couple of weeks, you’ll know that our members are on the lam with the Busan police hot on their trail.  The members who are able to get away in a helicopter at night will win a prize of one million won (or ~$1,000 US).

Just Bananas About: Week of 10/30/15

Last Sunday’s Running Man has got to be one of their most expensive sets ever.  This week’s episode featured a maze and the set design was incredibly elaborate.  While the set design was amazing (ha, get it?), I also loved that the episode felt like an old school episode with just our core cast.
