2011 Beanie Awards: Vote for your favorite dramas of the past year

It’s that time of year again: Polls, polls, polls!

To keep up the Dramabeans year-end tradition, here we are with the Best, the Funniest, the Crackiest, and yes, also the Underwhelmingest dramas of the year. (To see how past years shook out, take a look at the 2007 Polls, 2009 Polls, and 2010 Polls. Yes, I skipped 2008, which was a decidedly unpopular decision, so who am I to mess with tradition?)

As in years past, this also kicks off our annual Year End Review Extravaganza. In the coming weeks, we’ll be rolling out our wrap-up reviews summing up 2011’s offerings, so keep your eyes peeled for them! Past years can be found with this handy-dandy Year In Review tag.

But for now, it’s time for YOU to cast your votes and tell us what rocked your socks, buttered your toast, and tickled your fancy this year.

I know it's far from a hit and the stupid suspension almost killed the interest for the drama but I really wish that "The Musical" has a spot in your "The favorite drama of the year" category. Its gorgous plot and acting deserve that.

Looking forward to your year end review.

Agree with you with the Bromance category!
I thought that would be the first choice no lie.

Nothing says brotherly love like saving you from a burning building, telling your girlfriend that you still like her a little less than your non-blood bro, and sharing a bed, LOL.

I think City Hunter was overrated. The ending wasn't as fabulous and the whole 'keep-my-identity-a-secret-to-protect-my-loved-ones' had some loopholes.

But everybody seemed to be too blinded by eye-candy.

Which I hope is not the same with FBRS, as I haven't watched it yet.

Oh, it's the year-end awards already and I still have a lot of catching up to do!

"But everybody seemed to be too blinded by eye-candy."

- Can't say that enough.

"Lie to Me" running neck and neck w/ "Tree With Deep Roots"? Oh, the INSANITY!

(And I really like YEH, but nothing could have saved that dreck.)

Another eye-opener - Nam Gyuri nipping at Han Groo's heels for most noteworthy breakout performance.

Either NG's acting has really improved or people are just blinded by the pretty.

But interesting enough, "My Princess" hasn't gotten as much love despite the "eye candy."

While MP had its flaws, the relationship btwn the 2 leads was well done - developing naturally over time and having the right mix of emotion and humor.

I agree with you. I thought City Hunter was good but not great. While I did like the chemistry between Lee Min Ho and Park Min Young, for some reason my favorite couple is still Kim Tae Hee and Song Seung Heon's characters in My Princess. That "Can you not be a princess but be my woman instead" line GETS. ME. EVERYTIME. And City Hunter beating Girl K in the action category? Whaaa?

“Lie to Me” running neck and neck w/ “Tree With Deep Roots”? Oh, the INSANITY!

^^^ AGREED. Haven't seen TWDR yet but I've heard so many good things about it.

I actually ended up voting Nam Gyuri instead of Han Groo for breakout star just because Girl K only had like 3 episodes whereas Nam Gyuri was consistently knocking her role out of the park as Shin Ji Hyun.

sorry, but Tree With Deep Roots is being seriously underrated by this poll. of course, this is not that kind of trendy drama with best kiss, toilet scenes, piggy back ride etc.
but i guess leaving out Tree for Best thriller, drama character, villain and of course, underrated drama is such a shame.

Tree is such a gem to leave out, seriously.

Idk where to post it, but I've seen this TWDR vs TPM everywhere and I wonder if you (or the readers) here can give a brief assessment about both series? I know there're lots of sageuk this year but TWDR is like a "prequel" of TPM and it aired after TPM finished its run... so comparison for both series it's unavoidable. ^^"

I hope it's OK to extend the discussion here?

But I see very little similarity between the two except for period setting. TPM was a very soapy melodrama - all romantic emo angst for people who like that kind of thing (and I really wasn't a fan - but that's entirely me, it's not a genre I'm fond of so I'm not competent to say whether it's a good example of it).

TWDR - entirely different kettle of fish. Intelligent, strongly written, full of ideas as well as action, virtually no romantic side (I'm only up to epi 16, but I don't see that tone changing particularly much) but a lot of strong emotions on view. All those battles and all that blood - and at its heart is this idea of how literacy and knowledge can free a people and give it power. Almost 'pen is mightier than the sword' in 24 episodes. I was nervous of sageuks as what I've seen has always tended to the TPM type, so not for me. I caved and tried this one after reading more general reviews - so glad I did.

You can read the reviews in dramabeans, or thundie prattle or even the best review ever dahee fanel. Just to note, dahee is a very critical, hard to please, written a grumpy reviews here in Javabeans, but TPM is just there. Knock-out for not the romance or angsty but growing up. She said. Love her review to pieces.

I love to watch TWDR and I know i will addicted to it, but it lack heart and more to brain thingy which is not bad but will keep that later.

I am kinda mad A Thousand Kisses was not in more categories. It has some good kiss scenes that just happened recently and also have you seen the crying from the show? Pain and torture.Breakout Acting too.Also why didn't My princess have more options too? It was a mess at the end but so sweet, funny, and romantic at the beginning. Those are 2 of my favorites that missed out so I agree halfway on the poll. It's hard to choose those lol.Uggh!

Finished watching New Tales of Gisaeng after recommendation from friends. For me for pairing of OTP and story it is the best for year 2011. The onscreen chemistry of the main leads was really fantastic. It is a 52 episodes but after finishing the whole of 52 I keep going back to view 3 to 4 times scenes between the main leads. I saw most of the 2011 dramas but for me none of them beats the love story of AH DA MO and DAN SA-RAN.

I love action thriller. Mind me.

But i can't believe people choose City Hunter pair over The Princess Man. Well, I'm glad and happy they are dating in real but we are talking about REAL romance on the drama. A true couple who really die for each other NOT FOR the action/mangaish/cartoonish plot but really would die for the sake of your loved one and not to mention the justice SO MANY TIMES.

Not to mention the romantic pairing that we can imagine outside the drama. Feel real, connected and make us feel human.

MISA, is my fav couple before but now TPM's love story romance is just more than romance. it has what a happy, contend, real marriage means about.

The Me Too Flower kiss looks like it hurts. Granted it was hot and long, but it bothered me that he only kept his head to one side. He was totally making out with the left side of her face, which took me out of the romance and made me wonder if he was just trying to maintain the best position for the camera.

I chose FBRS because (even though EB was a little hesitant in her response) Chisoo seemed to savor every inch of her mouth: left, right, top and bottom. Hot!

Both are good.
FBRS is more easy watching ( like you would say easy listening music ). More comedy than romance to me.
M2F can be a little bit darker, BUT the funny scenes are verrry funny. And the OST is just pure extasy. And the couple is like a giant snowball that catches you on the mountain and rolls you downhill : You loose your breath and see stars. More romantic with a bit of good comedy.
