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.

Pass – You might be pretty but not that pretty enough

Just Bananas About: Week of 11/21/16

I was a little worried when I saw the new cast of the Three Meals a Day with Lee Seo Jin.  I guess I was so used to seeing the chemistry between Lee Seo Jin, Ock Taecyeon and Kim Kwang Kyu but I’ve been enjoying watching Eric, Yoon Kyun Sang and the cats, Mong and Kung.

Just Bananas About: Week of 12/11/15

Tonight is the last episode of the 2nd season of Three Meals a Day, Fishing Village Edition.  I’ve been enjoying watching Cha Seung Won make fabulous meals, Yoo Hae Jin trying to catch fish and Son Ho Joon… well, basically at their beck and call.  The 2nd season has been pretty decent and there have been lots of guest but I think they really saved the best for last.

Yoon Kye Sang has been in a lot of projects so I guess I shouldn’t really be surprised that each of the Three Meals a Day members are familiar with him.  Cha Seung Won and Yoon Kye Sang were rivals on Greatest Love, Yoo Hae Jin was in the movie, Minority Opinion, with him, and Son Ho Joon was in Full Sun with him.

Na PD’s latest reality/variety show has been off to a good start.  Three episodes in for Three Meals a Day and I’m already loving the sarcasm, hilarity and trickery on the show.  Although I have to admit that the initial concept of the show had me scratching my head at first.

Na PD has expressed in past interviews how he always wanted to do a cooking show so when I first heard about this show I was intrigued.  However, how would this show differ from the types of travel programs we’re used to from Na PD.  The great thing about Na PD is that he’s always been great at challenging his cast members and uncovering the rare moments of humanity apart from the celebrity world.  There’s no one who reacts better to Na PD evil wit than Lee Seo Jin.
