Running Man 2/13

I always start my Sunday mornings with Running Man. The cast gels really well with each other, and all my variety show favorites are in one place: Yoo Jae-seok, Ji Seok-jin, HaHa, Song Joong-ki. I totally have new appreciation for Song Ji-hyo, Gary and Gwangsoo. The only person I really dislike is Kim Jong-gook, and I’ve honestly disliked him ever since I got into Kpop and watched him in Xman. My dislike for him runs deep. He’s definitely one of those hyungs you would hate being the dongsaeng of, and he’s so angry and whiny all the time. I also really hate guys who are so insistence of their manhood and constantly feel the need to exert their masculinity, and Kim Jong-gook does all that to a motherfreaking fault. Can’t stand him.

I also love watching this show because this is one exceptionally well-dressed cast. Everybody dresses so well, even the older hosts! Sometimes, MC Yoo dresses nicer than I do. HaHa, Song Joong-ki and Song Ji-hyo are consistent favorites and I love seeing what they wear every week.

This week’s favorite is HaHa with a navy/black military blazer that goes so well with his glasses and his build, and Song Joong-ki’s amazing sweater with his crazy pom-pom hat and his bright red sneakers. Ji-hyo’s new haircut is bomb and so is her hat.

And this, just for kicks:

I hate subject titles

I’m grumpy grouchy and annoyed to the max lately. I have really bad habits when I get stressed out and annoyed. I eat like a mutha and I spend like a mutha. This has resulted in gaining some unwanted pounds and several purchases that I am now in the process of reconsidering.

This state of grouchiness and grumpiness has rendered me incredibly unproductive, where all I do after work/class/work/intern/class/intern is eat and conk out in front of the TV. I don’t even know what it is, but despite the workload, I’ve managed to go to bed earlier than ever every night and I’m still so tired every day and it just pisses me off and makes me stress eat even more and stress spend even more, all of which in turn stress me out EVEN MORE. What the fuck!

I don’t like veering off subject and getting too personal on this blog, so have some Kpop stuff hereafter. Oh, and the only bright side to the last couple of weeks is I got published for the first time the other day in a major New York paper. Unfortunately my current state of grumpiness is overwhelming my ability to celebrate.

Without further ado, Running Man 10/24:

He kissed her! He really kissed her! I also realized that Song Joong-ki is incredibly cheesy and uhh…느끼. I know it was part of a game, but this was severely embarrassing for me to watch. As a fan. As a female fan who a d o r e s him.

Haha agrees with me. Observe as he makes the universally recognizable “scratching-nails-down-chalkboard-horrifying” hand gesture.

Also, I freaking LOVE Gwang-soo. He is so funny and awkward and dorky and did I say, SO AWKWARD?? He’s like the Chun-hee of Running Man, except better. He dresses like a hipster fo’ sho’ but he’s so damn tall and funny! He’s only 23! That’s crazy talk. I feel like he’s always feeling less popular and/or funny/charming compared to Song Joong-ki since they’re both the younger of the cast, but I say pshaw. You are awesome, Lee Gwang-soo.

2NE1 TV 10/26:

This is the sickest military coat I’ve ever seen in my life. Screw Balmain, this. is. sick. Granted, you need to attain a certain level of shamelessness to wear this out in public, but I love it. Also, Dara is overwhelmingly pretty. Hate all you want about her lack of skill or whatever the hell, but I am a Dara fan and all y’all haters can set camp elsewhere.

Strong Heart 10/26:

Something something in this episode about Nichkhun’s grandmother thinking he and Victoria are sleeping together, something something, but look at Psy!!

This can be my “I’m feelin’ sauceh!” gif in the future.

Running Man 10/17

Man, something about this show is just getting a liiiittle worse as it goes along. Not even sure what it is, because it’s not like they’re running out of games to play, or running out of places to visit.

I randomly watched today’s episode after haven’t watched RM in about a month, and it was a good ep. Lots of hilariousness and best of all, Joong-ki was present. He’s been MIA-ing in and out because of Sungkyunkwan Scandal shooting, but every so often he graces me the cast with his presence and it is all good.

I would pay good money to see Joong-ki & co. walking down the streets in boxers. Yes.

Also, next week’s episode:

I love Ji-hyo but I’m conflicted…wait, nope, not conflicted, brb while I curl into a black hole and drop some salty tears.
