Odds and Ends: Happy birthday, Dramabeans!

javabeans: It took us a week to recover, but we wanted to thank everyone who came to our 10-year anniversary party in LA last weekend, which was hugely fun. At least it was for me!

girlfriday: And me! And the rest of our minions, some of whom had never been to a Dramabeans meetup before and were just as excited as the crowd.

javabeans: Not to mention that WE hadn’t even met some of our minions in person before, despite chatting on a near-daily basis online! We somehow crammed 11 of us into one house and borrowed cars and made it work.

girlfriday: Okay THAT part was fun, the DB slumber party. I don’t even know how we managed to share bathrooms and squeezed everyone in, and I was convinced we’d leave someone behind every time we piled into the cars.

javabeans: The bathroom thing amused me greatly, because I realized halfway through the weekend that it was working because we had amassed a team of a dozen hyper-observant, introspective types, and while it looked like we were just sitting around, everyone was actually stealth-watching everyone else to find their shower-time opening. Every twenty minutes, somebody would slip away and come back with wet hair. At one point I realized I was noticing someone noticing someone else noticing someone else. Someone probably noticed.

girlfriday: They didn’t even complain that we put them to work all weekend long, and made them decorate the party venue and eat jajangmyun delivery. But the place looked great! So a very special thanks to HeadsNo2, gummimochi, awcoconuts, dramallama, LollyPip, chickachunga, tineybeanie, CandidClown, and murasakimi for being such a great minion army that weekend!

javabeans: Not everyone on the team could make it out, but hopefully at some point in the future, we’ll have more of them involved. We were grateful to have the team around to keep things running smoothly, because apparently girlfriday and I are big geeks and couldn’t just throw a party with food and drink and free conversation. We decided to keep everyone occupied with K-Drama Pub Trivia, which I think went off swimmingly, given how much useless trivia everyone seemed to know!

girlfriday: That’s the whole point though! We need a place to apply all this useless drama knowledge stored in our brains, so why not put people in teams and award them prizes for it? Trivia was super fun, even for us to run it, and I totally want to play again. I was also really thrilled to see people making friends on their teams.

javabeans: I liked how people who arrived early did a circuit around the tables, because we’d themed each table/team with an actor’s picture (Team 1 was Song Joong-ki, for instance), and picked based on favorite oppas.

girlfriday: That cracked me up, because whadduya know, Team Park Bo-gum was filled instantly even though it was at the back of the room. I hadn’t expected that, but it was hilarious to see how seriously people took the choosing of the teams. I talked to more than a few people who were standing in between Team Lee Jong-seok and Team Kim Woo-bin going, “But… you’re making me choose?!”

javabeans: I noticed there wasn’t that much angsting over the actual choice, however! We were glad people did well in the trivia (I was worried it would be too hard or too easy, but it seemed about right), which included rounds like Name That Drama Scene and Name That Drama Soundtrack.

girlfriday: The OST round was especially entertaining because you had the whole crowd going, “OH! OH!” and singing along before figuring out what drama it was from. There was even some dancing!

javabeans: We also thought our 10-year party would be a good time to preview Big, Important things that are in the pipeline for the very near future, like a total website redesign with more responsive features, easier navigation (we hope), more community features, a much-improved mobile site, and a new logo. Coming soon! Very, very soon! Just as very soon as we can manage!

girlfriday: Yes! There are big changes around the corner, and we’re working very hard to make the new site a place where the community gets to participate more actively and be more engaged with other fans.

javabeans: And merch! We plan to finally have Dramabeans merchandise, and maybe even sell some other drama-related items on the site.

girlfriday: I will buy ALL OF THE THINGS!

javabeans: I know K-drama and K-pop paraphernalia make for really random purchases sometimes, but I can’t help seeing a pretty face slapped on a pointless trinket and want it anyway. Partly, we want to make things easier and more convenient for our users to get their hands on stuff, and partly (to be transparent) it’ll help defray costs of running this site, because we hate glitchy ads (we hear you! We’re trying) and we want to be able to run smoother ads with less problems.

girlfriday: So… save up all of your money to splurge on merch? (Is not actual life advice! Don’t listen to me!)

javabeans: We expect there to be some glitches after we make the changeover to the new site, but hopefully those bugs will be kept to a minimum, and we encourage you guys to let us know if you come across anything. RIght now, we’re too excited at the prospect of finally getting a better design (fingers crossed) that I know we won’t catch everything.

girlfriday: We can’t wait to show you guys the new design. Soon! We pinky swear!

javabeans: Some of us might not even be crossing our fingers behind our backs!

Building upon that idea, perhaps we could have a beanie that says "DRAMA" on it so it will be a Drama-beanie! And maybe a little avatar of your favourite oppa next to the word "Drama" :-)

I just had to come out of lurker mode to say I love the drama- beanie idea! I usually refrain from buying kdrama-related merchandise because I don't know of any fellow fans in my area, and I get overly self-conscious about it sometimes, but that beanie just might get me to open my wallet willingly! :D

Happy 10 years, Dramabeans! I'm curious and excited to see the coming changes! Does this mean we might get to like others' comments in the future? This site gets better and better, but thank you for also maintaining the thoughtful insights and respectful community that drew me to you guys years ago! <3

I like your attitude and I hope most beanies will adopt it. I think it's important to remember that because Dramabeans feels like home to many of us, that can make us a little resistant to changes. We tend to like what feels comfortable and familiar to us. I realized this the last time the site was redesigned, because even though the changes were relatively minor (mainly logo and color scheme), it still took me a long time to adjust to the new look and I was surprised by how attached I was to the way things were. But adjust I did, and adjust we will, and I hope that anyone who doesn't like some of the new changes right away can deal with them maturely (without a lot of whining aloud).

I applaud the Dramabeans team for being brave enough to take on a major redesign-- it's bound to cause a lot of headaches in the short term. But it will be worth it (just like minion bootcamp was)! It's amazing how this site just keeps getting better and better, and I'm excited to see what's in store!

Honestly, as long as the site keeps running smoothly and is easy to use, I'm fine.

I really hope the commenting system stays the same, though - I'd hate if db succumbed to the disqus scourge, because it takes ages to load comments on my phone. I'd rather have an easy way to comment than notifications about responses etc.

Haha the slumber parry sounds fun. Introspective people observing each other.

GF, as a fellow School 2013 fan I was flabbergasted at the thought of you making me choose, lol. I mean they were next to each other and everything! *single tear

JB, there was much angst. Looked at Woob apologetically all night. And have laughed wholeheartedly every time I comment since then. Why? My fan email is Woobsoo13 named after Kim Woo Bin, his character Heung Soo and the drama that taught me so much.

Took me at least 5 minutes to decide. And even then, I wasn't sure if I was going to stay on my team until after I placed my drink on the table. No going back!

But I realized I would regret not being on team Jong Suk so much more.

See, I can't even call them by team hehe numbers kekeke.

Trivia was challenging and soooo much fun, especially the OSTs. "I know that I know it. I'm just too busy singing along (unintelligible)."

I'm so excited for the new site. And omo merch!!!

Because I'm a bit of a narcissist, I had to zoom in anytime I thought I was in the pictures.
I'm in picture 12. About center, slightly to the left. The black girl looking straight into the camera ? I knew the moment I saw the camera, that picture would surface!
And picture 18. That arm coming from the background? It's me at table/team Lee Jong Suk pointing to a favorite picture of Woob ? (much angsting, JB hehehe)

@Lunatic4kd it was cool to meet you.
@Lord Cobol @shamrock____ (I'm blanking on your full username), our team was awesome!

To all the minions, thank you so much for the amazing party. Your army did good, lol.
@gummimochi you recognizing my handle and noticing my purple owl necklace surprised me so much.
@tineybeanie I still can't believe you follow my comments! ?

GF, my highlight of the night was probably you coming up to me as I put a whole piece of kimbap in my mouth. I couldn't chew fast enough. Then you recognized my handle! And my mouth was still full. So I did a finger heart ?
And then you stopped java walking by to introduce me by "Purple Owl". AND SHE KNEW IT! ?

That's just the tip of the iceberg of how much I enjoyed the night. Thank you soooo much for the hard work!

P.S. the most I've ever used exclamation marks in a single comment on any site. But I meant it each time!
Ok, maybe not that one ?

Oh, I wasn't much help to my team. I only knew some Lee Min Ho & Park Shin Hye characters. OSTs were awesome to rock out to but I need pictures to name more than the popular ones.

I have a theory that team Song Joong Ki won because the actor has the largest filmography and most likely drew the deepest fans to that table. That's why they had all the trivia knowledge ever. *JK just a thought

@Purple Owl - it was great to meet you too and I second @silentbeluga by saying WE NEEDED YOU ON TEAM KIM WOO BIN!!! We did pretty well for only 4 people with drama knowledge but it was so much fun hanging with that group and the two lovely boyfriends! Multiple servings of wine definitely helped...but I still can't figure out what that #8 necklace thingy was.

Javabeans and Girlfriday is there any way to post a list of the correct answers to all the trivia questions???

You guys have been such an inspiration to me, consistently improving your quality which was already great from the start. Your blog is an awesome example of what every blog should have been. Totally rawwkkks!! You are a game changer I should say.

I'm a blogger myself in my local language, writing mainly about traveling and slice of life, and having some regular viewers too. I've been doing it merely as a hobby in my leisure time but your blog is really impactful and meaningful in a positive way that I started to think bigger and now trying my best to build a blog in a way that could bring positive differences to the community.

Thanks a lot for the past 10 years. I enjoyed all the drama reviews and new segments. You guys are great English teachers too. I learned a lot from your style of writing which were totally lovable. Happy Birthday Dramabeans!!

Speaking of sparkly, I still hope that DB will start giving out trophies. Maybe the Merch can fund it? My wish list would be:

- Super glittery trophies for the Year End Review Awards

- A specially bound book with all of the recaps and comments for shows that break records for comments - sent to the producer (like Healer when the comments were way above the norm)

- Once in awhile a Fanderay (spelled correctly?) picture of a special scene sent to the actors involved.

Just my personal wish list!

Gah, congrats again for 10 long years (here's to 10 more! And then some!) and for a successful partay! I'd love to go to one of DB's meet ups one day and will make it a personal goal to do so.

I saw a couple videos from the party from a beanie on Twitter and I'm so excited for the new website design! It's gonna be so different–in a good way–and definitely gonna have more of that community feel, which is great.

Also, merch!? I never knew how much I wanted to own things with DB's logo and name slapped on it?! But I do! Gimme gimme gimme! Can't wait to see and participate in all the new changes and looking forward to giving you my money. Lawl.

I'm glad you guys brought up money because it's been troubling me for a while that the place (DB) where I have the most fun most days is completely free. While being wonderful, that just doesn't compute in today's world. So I link to places I do shop (Amazon, Sephora, etc) from here and hope that generates income for DB but am never sure that actually happens. I'd gladly join a "Friends of DB" voluntary donation group, btw. As far as merch, I'm all for it as long as it doesn't expose you guys to owning inventory that you might get stuck with. I know a very small bit about this stuff so if I can help, please do shoot me an email.

Looks like everyone had a blast!!! Sad I couldn't attend -- I'm only an hour and a half down south in San Diego, but too much going on last weekend ??

Lol, I cracked up at the photo testing the new commenting feature (the like button is coming back?!). mary's "MOON LOVERS IS BETTER" and the "OH NO YOU DIDN'T" response. A fine example of some our most mature conversations here on dramabeans!

oooh, if that's what the new commenting feature looks like, I don't mind! Didn't realise that was what it was, since all my attention was on the exchange.
