by | January 2, 2017 | 299 Comments
Happy new year everybody! This year is special for us not only because we get to kick 2016 away (although it was admittedly a pretty solid year for dramas) and welcome in a fresh, unspoiled one, but also because it marks Dramabeans’ tenth anniversary. This site started as a tiny side project in January 2007,... More »

Notice: Planned site updates later today
by | December 17, 2015 | 17 Comments
Those faces are pretty much the ones we’ve been making over the past week, with our site experiencing some unexpected downtime and crashing in the middle of the night while we’ve been trying to write/post/procrastinate on year-end reviews. You may have noticed. We’ve been working with our hosts to fix the errors, but sadly that... More »

Minion tryouts: Recap for Dramabeans
by | January 30, 2014 | 127 Comments
Anybody wanna write for us? Despite our attempts to resist change—one might say to resist growth—Dramabeans is getting ever-larger (you may have noticed the growing pains. We promise we’re trying to work things out). That is to say, the readership and the voracious appetites are growing—but on the other hand, our manpower is not. Dramaland... More »

by | July 14, 2013 | 312 Comments
We’ve seen some questions floating around regarding commenting etiquette, so we thought we’d take this opportunity to put up an official Dramabeans Commenting Policy to clear things up. We generally have an awesome commenter base here, with lots more respectful and well-spoken readers than bad apples. So first off, thank you for making this a... More »

Podcast request line: Ask Dramabeans
by | July 7, 2013 | 235 Comments
  While recording our last podcast, it occurred to us that we have yet to really veer from talking about specific dramas in our podcasts. We do want to take some time to chat about things that are drama- and Dramabeans-related, but not necessarily strictly confined to a certain show’s plot or execution or world.... More »

Announcement: Level 7 Civil Servant recaps now with less Joo-won
by | March 7, 2013 | 550 Comments
Okay, I have to get serious for a moment to address an issue that has just come to our attention. Dramabeans has had its very first DCMA takedown notice delivered, and sadly this is not a “Baby’s first milestone” sort of celebratory event. The notice came with scary legal lingo and accompanying threats to discontinue... More »
