As you can see, I am doing some archiving and spring cleaning. I do have some rather old reviews but I don't know if I want to post them. Most of them are 2nd draft. Anyway I think I am most active in movies now! Do join my Twitter unless you don't want to be inundated with too many unnecessary posts, so just maybe just you know, subscribe to the feed. Am rather inspired to blog on. 

Thanks for dropping by. The top is still unfinished so your eyes ain't playing trick on you. Do check Change Log if you're curious on where this is heading.

Tidbit
Jang Geun Suk was the original maknae as you can see in the poster above. He actually filmed I believe a quarter of the series as in the 1st 3 or 4 days on Manjae Island. He even attended and did an indepth interview at the splashy launch event for this series. Because of his tax scandal, which wasn't a scandal at all, somehow he felt it was good for everyone to leave the show. Na PD, with god of editing residing in his body, somehow manages to work around Jang Geun Suk and edited him out. But you can still see his hand, his head, his luggae (I assume the leopard skin luggage is his) and even his laugh. It was an amazing achievement but I feel wholly unnecessary to erase him out. So for a while I thought he was not there at all and the timeline looks jumbled up. When Son Ho Joon appeared in around Episode 3 if I am not mistaken, I believe he was still there. Son Ho Joon later replaced him which was excellent for me. But I feel Jang was treated unfairly through no fault of his cast members or Na PD. It was just how K Entertainment world works. A whiff of scandal and off you go. If he had still been on board, I believe we would have had subtitles from day 1 thanks to fansub. A dark spot in an otherwise glorious TV moment.

A BRIEF REVIEW
I never really blogged about this series whether in words or in pictures except once (see below). I may pick it up later on since there is an English subtitle torrent out there. Not exactly fansub quality so I hope a Korean fan will take up this task because seriously, Season 1 is the mother of all 3 Meals A Day series. This is my most favourite of all seasons and of all reality show. Super Chajumma is created through necessity and Resourceful Papa Yoo was as amazing too. The bicker, they fight, they argue, they love and then there's poor Ho Joon stuck in the middle. This is real bromance. There was lack of supply and yet Na PD gave challenges, making sure he could bamboozle Chajumma into defeat and each time Chajumma rises to the occasion. If you have never watched this, I beg you to watch it. It was slow to start but things pick up in Episode 2 and the celebrities who came along also suffer along. This is a show with purpose and there is a sense of real danger of starvation and yet there's real love, concern and genuine affection amongst the cast, two of whom are old friends and these two were genuinely fond of the maknae. It won't change your life but you will love me for it. A must watch.

I know they're super huge pictures but the subject matter deserves to blow your mind out. Relive this excellent reality show through pictures. All were posted in Instagram. I practically recap each episode but two episodes are missing which is episode 11 and 12 which I will add later. 

Warning. Huge images follows after the jump. By the power of Chajumma, let's begin. The posts are in ascending order.
