I would love to see skincare or beauty items that are popular from certain dramas, especially since some PPL is so heavy handed!

How about a copy of the OST, like the Hotel de Luna soundtrack? It would make for a nice collectible piece for us drama and music lovers.
I would also like iconic jewelry piece, if possible, like the necklace from Boys Before Flowers.

Ohh great idea !

Like others have suggested, I'd second little plushies related to kdrama (like a little goblin or a mini piggy-rabbit), snacks / PPL we see in kdrama, facial masks, funny sleep masks, stationaries, small English-Korean (vice versa) translation book such as for traveling, small tourist guide book/brochure about Korea, Tshirts made in Korea with awesome/funny quotes/graphics. So many choices!

Id like a PPL themed box with dyson vacuums and subway sandwiches.
Then id like a box of all the best worst dramas that exist. Dibs on about time.

Oh wow! this is so exciting! hmmm, I would like to see *thinks about the recents PPLs* maybe... maxim's coffee that completely captured the king... but.. we get that in the local market. I'd definitely want something drama related! Thanks DB, for new surprises!

It would be nice to have a theme like a sageuk box, rom-com box, etc.
As for what I want inside, a shirt with a print of a famous line from the drama. For example, "Am I the only one who's uncomfortable?" from 100 Days, My Prince and SWAGGGG with weights on top for WFKBJ.
Also accessories from dramas!
A soju glass!

It would be nice to have it more drama-centered since snacks can mostly be bought worldwide. It would be cute to have snacks/food seen in dramas in the box though.

P.S. I'm from Canada so this is not really an entry.

Fine! We get it! Melonia is a synonym for Narnia and you can't ship through the Wardrobe. You could've just said so.
*p.s. you should do a freezer box special and send ONLY Melona Bars*

I just recently (like yesterday) saw the ever-elusive, ever-mysterious konjac jelly which was mentioned in Pretty Noona (the noun that the FL was compared to that first episode). It was in apple and grape! I didn’t buy it, but would try it in a BeanieBox! And I’m late to the party, but a box with Gong Yoo-inspired snacks, beauty products and coffee would have my name written all over it.

I've thought of some other things! The little pour-in packets that are always product placed in the shows, like the coffee or energy/vitamin packets. Or the ones you drink. Any ppl item would be fun. Something kimchi-flavored! Drama themed plushies - I know not many (especially small ones) exist but I had to put it, because I love them. And last but of course not least- RAMYUN!

I would love to see some (moderately inexpensive) product placement-type items in the box. For example, an instant coffee packet! We see many of these products repeatedly in kdramas, so why not help us international folks discover what makes them so special?

All the cutesy stuff we see. Maybe some mini plushies? I like the idea of books like others have mentioned. Face masks, snacks. Like a drama marathon kit. Curious, what is the price point for the beanie box?

Maybe include some postcard of a actor or actress because I would love to collect those. Some beauty products,snacks, or drinks that are feature in dramas.I would definitely want to try them out.

A box with hard to get snacks from dramas would be lovely! Living in a smaller town in the Midwest now, I really miss the large Asian markets and bakeries! Going through serious Asian/Korean snack withdrawals!

I’m not in the US (*sob sob*) so don’t count me in, but haven’t seen this suggestion (I think?) so will add this:

Each box can have a fun fact on Korea.

Can be a location which is great to travel to (Shopping in Myeongdong is awesome!), a history fact (like Who is King Sejong and where can you see his statue?), a food fact (Why is Miyeokguk eaten during birthdays?) etc etc.
(Sorry my examples may be a bit lame 🀣)

The fact can be drama related or not. (Drama related, even better, you can put a QR code link to the recap for the drama πŸ˜‰)

You can even tie up with the Korean Tourism Board maybe? (*cough:sponsorship:cough*)

Educational and fun 😊

Great idea. I’d love to see included in box discount coupons for streaming sites like Viki, Kocowa, on demand Korea- maybe a coupon for a one-time 10-20% off their monthly subscription fee.

OST DVD is good too as well as any fanclub merch for their stars... those fan made gifts with coffee trucks and meals.

Hmmm... πŸ€”

1) Korean snacks - to munch on while watching Kdramas...
2) face masks - that we can put on while watching Kdramas to help unwind after a long days work...
4) Kbeauty products - so that we can be just as beautiful as kdrama actors...
5) little korean trinkets and tchotchkes - so that we can show off to people that, yes, we watch kdramas and by proxy are fans of all things Korean...
6) Kdrama OSTs - so that when we aren’t watching Kdramas, we can at least listen to the music...

For a beanie box id like some db swag. A tote bag with the db logo or a travelers mug. Pajama pants or a pillow to settle in for the binge.

A box filled with the favorite things of our dear overlords, another box filled with the favorite things of the minions.

A box of samples from the ppl.

Oooooh a box for each drama from the anniversary lists that y'all put out last (?) year.....

A subway gift card.....

Oh, a copy of that book that y'all wrote that is not in any library ever and ya should do something about that...

And at least the first volume of dramas that started out as books/manga in a literary themed box. Ok. Yay db! Thanks for the hard work!

could we have options? like there are usually like 3-4 huge mainstream dramas airing every month and we could pick which drama we like the best and maybe the box can have 1/2 special items that pertain specifically to that drama.. so the bulk of the box stays the same, just a little difference based on which of the dramas you choose

Love it! I've wanted to support the site over the years but have never really used skincare or makeup (gasp am I really Korean). Definitely second all who've suggested kdrama or kdrama character inspired boxes. Also, this is in the future, utterly random, and probably too high a price point for the box, but I got my eye on the english translation of Kim Ji-young, born 1988 (due out 2020)...

When I was a kid, I grew up visiting my relatives in Korea every summer. My grandmother would always feed me these shrimp crackers and my aunt would buy me Kancho (chocolate-filled cookie/crackers). My favorite though was this snack called bbusheo-bbusheo (literal translation: crush crush). Literal ramen snack. My cousins and I would sit outside and put in the seasoning and crush them with tiny wooden mallets and eat that and cool ourselves with melon ice cream bars. In one Beanie box, I'd like to see a box filled with old memories that bring smiles and nostalgia to many people.
