Vlog #2: Star comebacks, reader questions, and a new giveaway!

We’re back, as promised, with another video!

Thanks to everyone who watched the first vlog, and for leaving us comments on what to improve. We apologize for the audio in the first one—we knew the sound was a little low but didn’t realize it was quite that low!—but we’ve been working to improve on the sound quality and will continue to work on tweaking the setup. Thanks for bearing with us!

In this vlog, we talk a bit about dramas (mostly Meloholic and Go Back Spouses), about star comebacks (Yoon Eun-hye, Rain), and answer your questions. We’re also running a new giveaway (details below), so be sure to enter!

GIVEAWAY RULES:

  1. Subscribe to the Dramabeans Youtube channel.

I really like those vlogs, it feels like just friends talking.
I think it would be cool if you made suggestions not only based on the drama type, but more like the drama-theme like you did once before, and have a "if you like this drama you might like those dramas" sorta thing.

Not sure where the best place to leave a comment is, I left one on YouTube, but I will repost pretty much the same comment here if that's ok just in case.

My questions:
1. What two actors would you like to see together in a drama and they can't have acted in anything together before.
2. What happens in the in-depth discussion that you promised us on the first vlog of
Because This Life Is Our First? I was looking forward to it :(

Also just want to say Dramabeans is the reason that I keep watching Korean dramas even though many of my friends have quit. Thank you for all that you guys do!

I have seen some Beanies talking about missing the “Beans of Wisdom” posts. What do you think about in the vlog reading one or two short comments from Beanies you see either in the recaps or on the fan walls which you like, find funny or interesting, or feel particularly on-point?

So fun! These vlogs somehow feel like the fam is being brought closer together.
I loved the "hook drama" question. When on a gal pal vacation two summers ago, my friends finally said they'd try out k-dramas. I filled the Facebook event with profiles - titles, genres, episodes, synopses, posters, and trailers of 16 kdramas so they could have their pic. My Girlfriend is a Gumiho didn't work. W had a much better response, but nothing stuck for them! Sadly I think part of the trouble was subtitles. Tragic!

I got my husband and best girl friend watching with Boys Over Flowers. They didn't stick with kdrama- but did spend 12 hours marathoning that crazy beautiful mess.

100 percent my favorite first episode of a drama is Shut Up Flower Boy Band... I actually think that the Flower Boy series is strong for first few episodes, Flower Boy Next Door is also really strong and quirky right off the top, and to a lesser degree, Flower Boy Ramen Shop. But SUFBB is def. my fav for introducing k drama. It's tightly edited, the characters are pretty and relatable, and there's a great energy about the whole thing.

Arang and Sunk Scandal are really good first ep dramas too.

Oooh, yes! I somehow completely forgot about SUFBB when thinking about great first episodes.

My question: Will you ever return to the East Coast again? Any thoughts of it? I know Newark kinda scared you off, and I've been pestering you about this all year, but I'm still holding onto hope for someday...

OMG ! Yess soo many of your awesome posts get buried and I cant remember key words to search for them!

I was wondering if it's possible for you to link the fun/popular tags/themes of your past posts especially from the Extras section in the Resources page & have the link to the Resources page in the Main menu of the blog for ease? Similar to your Top-posts page?
Like some tags I can remember are 'beans of wisdom', 'spill the beans', 'existentialism' and so on.
(Index of all tags is waaay too overwhelming)

Would be so much easier to find the tag links and for new readers to look through the gold mine of your archives! :)

Also at the risk of sounding waay too pert.. can we have fresh tags to all the theme of the months ?! So we can find them?! Right now we only have few months but i can imagine in the future it's gonna be hard to search each one out..

On Yoon Eun-hye, I don't think she deserves this sort of vilification by knetz. First, it's difficult to draw a line between plagiarism and inspiration. I've seen comparison pictures between YEH's designs and the ones she supposedly copied from. There are clearly some similarities, but to call it plagiarism is taking it a little too far. The designs look pretty commonplace to me really. Which is probably why she never did apologise for the "plagiarism". Her handling of the scandal is the problem, but to be honest I don't see the fuss too. I just don't give a damn about this so called plagiarism scandal.

Also, if Park Shi-hoo can make a comeback, then I think YEH deserves a chance as well. Her scandal pales in comparison.

I agree. Before DOTS weren't a lot of knetz unhappy with SHK? A big blockbuster drama comes along and everything is fine. I think the whole thing was overblown, but - yep - she could have handled it better.

Agreed. I'm convinced that no one in the show business is saint. Jang Hyuk had a draft drodging scandal, Kim Hyesoo plagiarized her master's thesis, Joo Jihoon once smuggled drugs. The list goes on. All it takes is apologies and good roles for them to bounce back. Sometimes that's fair, sometimes it's not, but Yoon Eunhye deserves a chance.

Q for next week: Are you surprised by how successful "The Good Doctor" remake has been in the US? Are there any remakes you'd like to see or think would do well in the ratings?

Question:

1. Who are your favorite actors/actresses (veterans and rising stars)
2. I just want to hear what you think about the catastrophe that is Ruler--Master of the Mask?
3. When is the BTLIOF vlog gonna be? HAHAHAHA!

Just a suggestion: When you mention an actor/actress, could you show their names on the screen. I'm so used to recognizing them by what's written that when you guys say it out loud, I don't make the connection. For example, I didn't know who had the scandal until YEH's picture was shown!

Love that you are doing more with the video! The sudden Girlfriday closeup of “mom, I love you” is toast-crumb spewing awesome. The lightening sound effect over #handbagapology and Girlfrday’s re-enactment are daebak.

One suggestion would be to let some of the photos linger just a second or two longer before they fly off the screen. My ahjumma eyeballs take a little more time to register what I am seeing. 👀

Thanks you for the awesome vlog!

Meloholic is a huge mess no matter how you look at it. I'm just glad though that he stopped helping guys get girls, because he stopped grabbing hands of unsuspecting women. There's one thing kind of, uhm, right. The NSFW part. If OCN liked that part too then they should venture into tomcoms more, better written ones but with adults doing adult stuff for the adult audience. Ha- god this was a mess. 😂

Can you explain this comment from Lee Min Ki at BTIMFL press conference where he said "I learned that there are consequences to my actions, and I’m going to work hard to be more careful and prudent." I know he had a big break in dramas, but I can't find in English what happened. Is this Korean politeness or was there a scandal?

He had a sexual assault scandal prior to his military service. I'm not too sure about the details tho.

I love, love, love these vlogs! Thanks ladies :)

Question: What, in your opinion, is the reason for the universal appeal of K-dramas? It's clear from dramabeans alone that a significant number of people from the English speaking world are watching (and loving) Korean shows.

Are there any specific lines from k-dramas that made a lasting impact on you?
I had a bunch of questions I wanted to ask but now that I'm writing a comment I can't think of more XD

I am loving these vlogs! The information you guys share, and just how chill you are. I don’t have a ton of friends who are into Hallyu, so this site is my daily fix. Great job! And I am super excited that you have the shop open now. Keep up the awesome work! 😊
