Just Bananas About: Week of 1/2/17

Happy New Year!  It’s been a mad dash for me to complete my reviews before I can put out my End of the Year TV Reports and I still got a few more to go.  If only I was better at not procrastinating… well, I suppose that’s what new year resolutions are for, right?  And still, that didn’t stop me from adding another program to watch on top of what I’m already watching.  Last year, I attempted to watch a web drama, Splash Splash LOVE, and loved it.  Each of the episodes are about 10 minutes or so in length, they don’t require much commitment and they’re often silly and entertaining.  So during the break, I was interested in doing that again and came across Seven First Kisses.

[Review] City Hunter – 시티헌터


I was so ready for this to be Shitty Hunter but pleasantly surprised when I heard that they were veering off from the manga because of Rain’s Fugitive: Plan BFugitive followed along the same plot lines as the City Hunter manga so the drama went in their own direction.  (Sadly, I quit Fugitive halfway through the first episode hence the initial worry for City Hunter.Programming wise, this was an excellent drama to go against Greatest Love and You’ve Fallen for Me.  For those people that didn’t want to watch rom com, this action-adventure drama filled that void.
