The Weekly Recap (193)

Posted February 27, 2023 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

I’m in my strawberry banana smoothie era because I have made so many this week. Not because I’m trying to use the strawberries and bananas before they go bad either. I have been craving it all week. I spent a lot of time this week trying to read a book for my book club that was yesterday and I just couldn’t finish it. One of my goals this year is to read all of my book club books. I’m in two book clubs, one with my book friends and one with my sisters and our daughters, and entering the third month of the year, I’ve already failed in both book clubs. I DNF’d January’s book in my family book club and last month’s book for my book friend’s book club. I’m really hoping that our March picks are a lot better because I can’t fail every single month, haha.

Over the weekend, J-Hope announced that he had started the paperwork for his own military enlistment. He canceled his enlistment postponement and is getting himself ready to join the military ranks with Jin. I’m sad because of all the members, Hoseok has been the most active on social media to keep us fans connected with him so it’ll be lonely on these purple streets without for him two years. I’m really going to need their enlistment to go as fast as Jang Ki Yong’s did. I remember when he left and I blinked and now he’s out. Let’s hope that will be the case with the rest of the members. Hoseok is also dropping a song on Brenna’s birthday (March 3rd) so March is really shaping out to be a really busy month for BTS and ARMY. Seventeen, please enjoy your break…please don’t drop anything until April, I beg. 🙂

Now, let’s get into all of the things that I did last week…

What I Watched

Taxi Driver | 4 out of 5

Therese and I decided to watch this drama (I’m watching it again) for this month’s buddy watch and we are loving it. I’m so glad that one of my favorite shows from 2021 is a show that my best friend enjoyed it as well. Even though we’re both in agreement that the first half of this season is a lot better than the second half, we still enjoyed it. Such a great show!

Our Blooming Youth: I think the show has hit its stride for me because I enjoyed this week’s episodes and I’m invested now. The back and forth of trust between the Crown Prince and Jae Yi is gonna give me whiplash but I’m finally on board for it all. I’m starting to think that I have a girl crush on Pyo Ye Jin too because I absolutely adore her character in this show just as much as I enjoy her character in Taxi Driver. I just love her so much. I’m excited for the next couple of episodes.

Run BTS: It’s a sad week! Run BTS has aired their final episode for the time being and I’m so sad but holy cow, that last episode was something else. I’m used to laughing like a hyena whenever I watch any of their shows and that was exactly what I did while watching this one. Jimin had me dying. It was funny to see that the rap line was a lot better at scoring goals in this game than Jimin was, considering how bad they were at foot volleyball. I’m going to miss this show while the boys are off busy doing other things and during their military enlistment. This was such a highlight for my week.

Suchwita: This week’s guest was Tablo from Epik High. I don’t know much about Tablo’s music with Epik High since my introduction to him and his music was through BTS. I have listened to some of his music though and enjoyed it so I plan on listening to more. I really enjoyed this episode of Suchwita. I loved watching them talk about music, their friendship, seeing them being so appreciative of the support and just of each other was super cool. I thought Tablo turning down dinner plans with Yoongi because he had to help his kid with their homework was super cute, too. Yoongi had no idea what to do with that, haha. Seeing that this show has surpassed all of the expectations that Yoongi had for the show and becoming something so much bigger than a talk show where the other members can come and promote their solo stuff makes me so happy. This is at the top of my favorite shows right now.

Seventeen in the Soop 2: What a great show this one turned out to be. I wasn’t expecting any difference, mind you, but I was still surprised at how much I enjoyed seeing the guys relax and spend their days doing whatever it was they wanted. I loved seeing Jeonghan make Hoshi spend the entire day with him. Through these episodes, Jeonghan became one of my favorite members. I’m also really soft for Minghao. Seeing him take care of Vernon was too stinking sweet.

The Heavenly Idol: This week’s episodes were good so I’ll definitely be tuning in for more. I’m LOVING Woo Yeon Woo right now and Kim Dal is a great character that I’m looking forward to more from.

Taxi Driver 2: I freaking love this show. The second half of the first season wasn’t my favorite but the second season seems to have picked back up and I am over the moon about it. This week’s episodes were a lot of fun at the same time that it was infuriating to see the bad guys taking advantage of all of those old folks. I did laugh when they sang Jin’s song though, haha. Ugh, metal balls from Crash Course in Romance is in a new show and already pissing me off. If he don’t mind his damn business…but that ending to next week’s preview????


Call it Love: This show premiered this week and the first two episodes were pretty compelling. Compelling enough that I’m already planning to continue this one. I really like Lee Sung Kyung so I’m looking forward to seeing her story roll out.

Jinny’s Kitchen: Taehyung went to Mexico to film this show with his besties Park Seo Joon and Choi Woo Shik. Of course I tuned in. I loved that this one premiered for our region as well as the Asian region because Disney Plus and their regional restrictions are annoying as hell. This is going to be a fun break between all of the intense revenge dramas that I’m watching right now. I loved seeing V in his dish washing era and I completely adore Park Seo Joon and seeing him when his corndogs burned was too freaking cute.
