Just Bananas About: Week of 4/3/17

In honor of April Fools’ Day this past Saturday, and I’ll admit that I stayed low in the comforts of my home, what better way to celebrate with episodes of Secretly, Greatly.

Jive Monkey Playlist: 11/18/16

It’s an all-SM featured post today.  A lot of the SM artists, especially singers who are in big idol groups, have been releasing a lot of their solo albums and singles recently.  It’s to be expected that many of the songs are gonna be about love but the common thread I’ve been finding in the tracks for today’s playlist is the inability to forget about that person, whether thinking about that person makes you happy or whether it pains you to think about that person.

[Review] Oh My Venus – 오 마이 비너스

BEAUTY AND THE SELF-CONSCIOUS

Kim Young Ho (So Ji Sub) is a personal trainer to Hollywood stars, using the alias John Kim.  He’s a very private person since he comes from a wealthy family in Korea.  After a scandal with a famous actress, he returns to Korea to wait for it to die down and ends up saving Kang Joo Eun (Shin Min Ah) after she collapses on the plane back to Korea.

Formerly known as the “Venus of Daegu” in her hometown, she fulfilled her dream of becoming a lawyer but ended up gaining weight.  On their 15 year anniversary, instead of receiving a proposal of marriage, Joo Eun is dumped by her boyfriend, Im Woo Shik (Jung Kyeo Woon).  By ending his relationship with Joo Eun, he can now openly date Oh Soo Jin (Yoo In Young), Joo Eun’s best friend from her school days.

Just Bananas About: Week of 11/27/15

Happy Day after Thanksgiving! Happy Black Friday!  Last week was the premiere of Oh My Venus.  While I like Shin Min Ah and So Ji Sub, I honestly didn’t quite get the plot of the drama.  Shin Min Ah plays Kang Joo Eun, a lawyer, who used to be the prettiest girl in town.  Years later, she’s broken up with her boyfriend and a bit overweight.  So Ji Sub plays Kim Young Ho, the outcast son of a wealthy family.  He hides the fact that he’s celebrity trainer, John Kim, because of his family’s status.

Just Bananas About: Week of 5/29/15

Running Man has been having a rough couple of months with games that have gone stale and what seems like the same cycle of guests.  However, I’ve been loving the last few episode because it seems like the games have been given a revamp and the guests have been funny.  I don’t really care if the guests are there to plug a new movie or drama but they have to be funny.

Last Sunday’s theme featured foreigners who were living and working in Korea.  So we had god’s Park Joon Hyung, 2PM’s Nickhun, Henry, Amber, M.I.B’s Kangnam.  However, that wasn’t the thing that drew me to the episode.
