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”.

Infinite Challenge has been building up this star-studded Muhansangsa (Muhan Company) movie.  Starting from Signal’s writer Kim Eun Hee writing the script to her husband Jang Hang Joon directing the movie.  They also enlisted a ton of A-list stars to cameo in it.  While the movie was shown for the variety show, Kim Eun Hee’s style of writing is typically telling mysterious tales so there is thriller aspect to them.  Be warned.  There are some spoilers ahead.

Just Bananas About: Week of 3/11/13

It’s kind of funny how timely things can be.  I commented on a fellow blogger’s post recently about the entertainment value of relationship variety shows.  Most specifically We Got Married, since that’s the only one I’m watching right now and I’ve mentioned some things I’ve missed about Season 1.

It’s not that I don’t find the show entertaining anymore.  I just feel a sense of whiplash at how quickly we go through the couples.  The reality of it is if you count the number of episodes we spend on the couples, nothing really has changed since the beginning.  What sets this show apart from the others ones is that they’re supposed to represent a fake marriage and the problem is that I just feel like we don’t get to see them do all the things that a married couples do.  Rather than just go on dates.
