[Theme of the Month] Best friends forever

Last month was our chance to celebrate (and in some cases, bemoan) our dramaland OTPs, and now it’s time to move on to the BFFs that have our heroes/heroines backs and keep our hearts warmed.

Tell us about your favorite dramaland friendships.

Whether it’s a group of girlfriends, a band of brothers, a mixed crowd, or a singular awesome bestie, there are a lot of examples of solid friendships running through many dramas. Maybe they’re the shoulder for our main leads to cry on, or maybe they’re the calm voice of reason, or maybe they’re the sassy badass who delivers a much-needed kick in the pants. Now’s your time to celebrate them!

 
To submit:

  • Email your submissions to [email protected] If you have a registered Dramabeans account, include your handle so we can link to it.
  • Include at least 1 image, though more is preferred.
  • Suggested length: Between 500 and 1,000 words.
  • Deadline: We will post these on a rolling basis, so we’re taking submissions now. We will cut off accepting submissions on March 26. If you miss this month, join us for a new theme next month!

I already know someone is going to write about BTLIOF 🙈

Mawang and Oh-gong’s bromance cracks me up every time but Mawang needs to get off his crazy pills and stop talking about eating Samjang.

Mawang wating Samjang is so last week 🙉
It's nice that dramas progressed to the stage where main characters aren't total loners or have just one good friend (So they won't take too much screen time, I presume? Or is it just too much work for the writers?).

YESSSSS THIS HAS ME EXCITED.

My top friendships are definitely AOY and BTLIOF but everyone and their mother will probably write about them and do a better job of it than me, so I don’t think I will bother. I have one that I don’t think anyone else will write about and the thought is making me excited.

But will I get around to actually writing it, though...

Oh, and SUFBB! Someone will surely write about SUFBB so I don’t have to, right?

Someone please write about SUFBB.

And the Answer Me series, of course.

Man, there are lots of great friendships in dramaland.

No, you should definitely write about SUFBB and whatever other one you are thinking of! I’d read both of them and shower you with praise! 😝

Great minds! I’m not touching White Christmas though. One of you will need to give it the honor it deserves. It would be a really tough one for me to review. Although, an excuse to watch Lee El again. 😆

Required fields are marked *

Wait! Park Yeon-seon wrote Evasive Inquiry Agency?!?

Yet another reason for me to watch that drama! It’s been on my list forever and is patiently waiting for me, downloaded and ready to go on my computer.

Write a post all about her dramas and give me the final push to watch it! 😉

Javabeans loved it. And that is my #1 reason for having it on my list, hehe.

It’s called Mixed-Up Investigative Agency here on DB.

It's usually enough to use search but it should be under Reviews. This one is here: http://www.dramabeans.com/?s=Mixed-Up+Investigative+Agency&paged=2

Or better Resources (down the page) and Master review list.

AOY, BTIOFL, “Marriage Contract” (I need a girl friend, that is ready at any given moment, to hurl her shoe at the man that I love but just tried to force himself on me, just sayin’), INAR (I also need a Sun Hye in my life), WFKBJ my “SWAG” girls, all the Reply series, dare I even mention F4 😂, our SWDBS besties (which reminds me that I also probably need a BFF with super strength 😉)

I think it's more about "we're friends (now), and no one messes with my friends", so in a sense best friends forever (from now on)

Yeah, I realised that I was being dim after I'd posted it but I wasn't going to delete it because I love the Avengers Ahjummas so much. Even the AoY friends became friends because they're flatmates...

I’ve been screencapping the hell out of this show, and have no idea why. Another one that someone else will have to do. I’m only 6 episodes in. But I can send my screen caps to anyone who wants them, but doesn’t have time to rewatch it! @kethysk

As some OTPs got destroyed last month, I think you can definitely talk about toxic friendships. Let me rephrase that: I think you should! It would be such fun to read.

Hmmm I was thinking of She Was Pretty or Missing Nine. The point being sometimes it's not okay to forgive someone no matter relationship you had with them... Ugh to find the time

For some reason this article reminded me of Park Hee-von, the inimitable BFF of the heroine in 'Fated To Love You' and, I just realized, the heroine's mom in Goblin! Main characters come and go, side characters will stick with you through thick and thin.

I should do what @leetennant did last month and write about best friends forNEVER = characters that broke off their friendships because of A Boy (Doctors, Temperature of love, Sassy Go Go, Girls Generation 1979) but I'm self-conscious about my writing and my English so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ someone take this away from me and please don't forget about INAR cause I need to talk about it somewhere other than my fanwall from time to time
keeps my obsession fresh

Do it! From what I've read of your English, it's definitely good enough for a blog post.

You should definitely do it! If there are some mistakes in your English, the Powers of Dramabeans miraculously fix them.

When you say Best Friend Forever, there are some friendships that instantly shoot up on the top of your head like Answer Mr series, or Age of Youth or a more recent one BTLIOF.
But then there are some unconventional friendships that aren't really thought about much such as the Healer-Ahjumma, it'll be friendship right, coz Ahjumma doesn't consider herself as a mother figure or the friendship between Halmoe and Gang Doo, coz they really behaved like one.
Hope to write about them..

What about best friends that ended up with each other, like Bottom of the 9th with 2 Outs. I really loved this drama. Or is that another topic?
