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.

[Review] Dream High 2 – 드림하이 2


I’ll be honest.  I wasn’t very into the first one either.  Sometimes teen dramas seem so trivial to me now.  (So says the person who still loooves The Vampire Diaries.)  But I was riding the Kang Sora and Kim Jung Tae wave from liking the work they did in their previous projects (e.g. Sunny and Can’t Lose, respectively) and so I thought about giving this teen drama a chance.  I even defended it on the forums in the beginning but it didn’t even live up to the predecessor.
