I didn’t watch last season’s Produce 101, partly because I didn’t have the time and partly because I wasn’t all that interested in watching a show in which young women are set up against each other to become “the number one idol”. I know I’m being hypocritical as just because this season features young men doesn’t make the competition format any better. However, I’m going to try and be a bit more open as many of the contestants are out trying to achieve their dreams. That’s something I can totally root for.
I’m finally getting around to Part 2 of this review. However, it looks like I won’t be able to complete Part 3 until after I return from vacation.
The rating system:
Must Watch – Eyes glued… To the chocolate abs.
Watch – Well, heeeey there good lookin’
Just OK – Mildly entertaining at times but I’m here for the pretty boys.
If you’re bored – Sorry, you’re pretty but I’m just not that into you.
Pass – You might be pretty but not that pretty enough
It’s been so long since I last did one of these that I don’t know if I remember how to do one. I don’t think I did one once last year but I’m going to try to better about getting these out. It’s nice to be able to talk about shows that are currently running. There are times when I start off loving a show only to be disappointed at the end. Also, there are those American shows that I don’t have the time to do full reviews or shows that I’ve given up midway that it’s a nice way to recap some thoughts on those shows.
In light of 6.25 this week, Real Men decided to feature a specialized unit that excavates remains from the Korean War. The men head to Hwacheon which borders the 38th parallel and was often a hotspot during the war due to power plant.
If you haven’t been watching Real Men, it’s time to catch up. Never before have the cast members have been pushed to their limits. In the Navy’s Ship Salvage Unit (SSU), the boys learn that it’s not just about their physical abilities but overcome mental stresses as well.
Onto currently airing K-Drama and K-Variety programs. Although lately, I haven’t been watching very many K-Dramas but I am keeping my eye out for a few new dramas that are expected to start airing soon.
The rating system – the karaoke edition:
Must Watch – Perfect score! Watch – You could have a great career in singing. Just OK – It’s not that bad. If you’re bored – Please put in a little more effort next time. Pass – *covers ears*
We’ve finally come to the final episode of Jessica & Krystal. As the sisters finish up their dinner, they share a sweet, emotional moment that shows how strong there bond is. However, this episode is also a journey through the series overall. Editing-wise, it may have been a rough and bumpy road but it was a rare opportunity to see past the visage that is Girls’ Generation and f(x) and get to know what’s at the heart of their relationship.
