Thing vs. Thing: Actors playing actors
by | November 25, 2012 | 120 Comments
javabeans: Not all meta is funny, but actors making fun of themselves always hits the spot. Like Siwon opening up a twitter account for his King of Dramas character Kang Hyun-min, who resembles nobody so much as, perhaps, Zoolander. Though I suppose Eric and his alter ego for Myung-wol the Spy come close. girlfriday: Eric... More »

Santa Strikes Back! [Year In Review, Part 6]
by | December 25, 2011 | 101 Comments
What the ever-lovin’ reindeer feculence? I get home from my overnight trans-earthian sleigh odyssey, settle back with my hard-earned fifths of whiskey to read up on what I’ve missed in dramaland, and find that they’ve finished the year-end reviews without me? This is an outrage! I know who’s getting their presents revoked this year! Goddamn... More »

The DramaMeter: highly scientific and foolproof [Year in Review, Part 4]
by | December 21, 2011 | 181 Comments
  Wow, another year of dramas, come and gone. Where does the sanity go? I decided that for this year’s review, I would learn to be impartial and precise, and give systematic mathematical ratings for every show. Because numbers are fun. But then, I found that trying to rate a year’s worth of dramas was... More »

The Good, The Bad, and The Hmmm… of 2011 [Year in Review, Part 2]
by | December 15, 2011 | 257 Comments
  First off, I have to deeply thank – and bow to – Javabeans and Girlfriday – it’s an honor to be included with the most respected K-drama writers for this year. Compared to these fine people, I am an utter noob. Speaking of being such a noob, I shall now complain: It’s so hard to... More »

Time for another Year In Review series! How did a year pass by so quickly? I guess when you’re busy watching dramas, time flies.

They had me at pig rabbit…or wait…was it the rabbit pig? The hybrid lovechild doll born out of Tae Kyung (Jang Geun-Seok) and Mi-Nam’s (Park Shin-Hye) puppy love in the hit drama You’re Beautiful had me looking at the Hong Sisters in a fresh new light. It was just this past winter when I was first introduced to... More »

Dramabeans Podcast #7, Part 1
by | July 17, 2011 | 144 Comments
Podcast #7 is here! Warning: Will be long and meandering. Also, drunk. We recorded this podcast (of which there will be three parts) in one monstrously long session, intending to post it in its entirety. The better to monitor the progression of drunkenness, and all that! However, upon listening to our out-of-control rambling, we’ve decided... More »

Best Love: Episode 16 (Final)
by | June 23, 2011 | 285 Comments
It’s over! Did Best Love topple my long-standing No. 1 from the top of my personal Hong Sisters favorites list? Maybe not, but it did give the list a pretty decent shakeup. As a straight-up episode, this one was admittedly light on drama — but as an epilogue, it’s one of the better ones I’ve... More »
