girlfriday: Wheee! That was one long birthday party! I know we only turned five, but it feels like we turned 500! Thanks so much for all the love and support for Dramabeans all month long.
javabeans: And while it’s the site having the birthday, we wanted to make the party about the readers, since otherwise it would be a party of two, hosted by our special friends soju and nostalgia.
girlfriday: And mostly when we do that, we get strange looks from other people. We know it’s mushy, but we wouldn’t be where we are without you guys, so we wanted to make sure and say thank you to all our faithful readers from around the globe.
javabeans: Thanks also for all the great suggestions to the last giveaway prompt. There were some fun ideas, and some wacky ones. There were also some requests that we wanted to point out on the site, since they already exist! The header and footer links are a great place to look for resources, like:
girlfriday: There’s a lot of fun stuff in places other than the homepage, so dig around and do some exploring! We take no responsibility for the hours you lose going down that rabbit hole though. You’ve been warned. There’s a handy-dandy tag for our conversation posts, done in this format, and our variety recaps like 1 Night 2 Days are done in that style as well.
javabeans: For example, you can also filter out first episode recaps, if you want to check out how a drama starts, or read up on actor interviews or award ceremonies. That’s just one of hundreds (or thousands?) of tags on the site, which you can find on this convenient Tag Index.
girlfriday: Hopefully that’s helpful and not overwhelming. We realized from a lot of the feedback you gave us that some people might need a quick refresher Dramabeans roadmap. We can’t promise that we’ll fulfill every last request, but rest assured that we’ve read them all, and plan to try out some fun new things this year. No worries though — we won’t change who we are, save for surprise lobotomies or evil twins switched at birth.
javabeans: It’s K-dramaland, though, so never say never. A hint for potential future twin-usurpers, however: I’m the evil one.
girlfriday: Does that mean your twin is the nice one? Where can I find her?
javabeans: Out with your nice twin.
girlfriday: Damn, I hate those two.
And now, for the grand prize winner of the Samsung Galaxy 7.0 Plus tablet… drumroll…
javabeans: Our winner is
girlfriday: Congratulations! *throws confetti*
javabeans: Thanks to everybody who participated in our giveaway extravaganza, and here’s to making Year #6 one to remember. In a good way, I mean. I have enough traumatizing memories already, thanks to clowns and math.
girlfriday: Thanks for that glimpse down memory lane. Now we know why you’re the evil twin.
javabeans: You say that like YOU aren’t.
girlfriday: I might be the good one! You never know!
javabeans: In the fourth dimension, maybe. Speaking of which, I hear dramaland calling my name. There’s a drama that needs recapping! *shoves girlfriday into the wormhole first*
