Odds and Ends: This video is not available in your region
by | October 11, 2014 | 394 Comments
javabeans: Have you noticed that it seems to be getting strangely more difficult to find subtitled dramas these days? I don’t have any numbers or figures to support this, it’s just a feeling I’m getting from reading comments and hearing about people’s difficulties watching things. girlfriday: Yeah is it an actual problem to find the...

Odds and Ends: Awards are great/terrible, we love/hate them
by | October 4, 2014 | 68 Comments
javabeans: Omg why did all the red carpet events come at once? You have a whole, quiet spring and summer and then BAM! Fall happens and suddenly everybody wants prizes. girlfriday: I know, it’s like a fire sale for golden statues or something. I’m convinced we must’ve done something to anger the heavens this week,...

Odds and Ends: There’s no accounting for taste
by | September 20, 2014 | 136 Comments
javabeans: Taste sure is a subjective thing, isn’t it? girlfriday: Well that’s a strange (and somewhat obvious) thing to say. Are we playing non sequitur game? Is it my turn? Sometimes I wish rainbows were made of candy. javabeans: That wasn’t the game I was thinking of, but okay. I actually meant that in the... More »

Odds and Ends: Mutually assured destruction
by | September 7, 2014 | 112 Comments
javabeans: Happy Chuseok weekend, everyone! Technically the holiday isn’t until Monday, but I’m pretty sure everybody’s brains turned off on Friday afternoon anyway. Or maybe it was the mass exodus out of Seoul to everyone’s respective hometowns that killed the brainpower. I swear you’d think from the traffic that the world was ending or something.... More »

Na PD baits Lee Seo-jin to headline new variety show
by | September 5, 2014 | 28 Comments
girlfriday: Ooh, Na PD (Na Young-seok) is doing a new show! Okay, so technically he’s always doing a new show with Grandpas Over Flowers leading to Noonas and Youths and so forth, but apparently he’s switching gears with his next variety program and stepping away from the Over Flowers theme. javabeans: Is it really switching...

Odds and Ends: Concept conception
by | August 30, 2014 | 86 Comments
javabeans: So I’ll be flying down to see you again this weekend, which is weird to say because when this post goes up I will have already done it. Which we’ve mentioned before, I’m sure. It’s like time travel, but without any of the fun parts. girlfriday: And also without any of the earth-shattering time-space... More »

Odds and Ends: No pain, no gain
by | August 23, 2014 | 217 Comments
girlfriday: I feel a little bit like a slacker these days, only recapping half a show. It’s probably the lightest load I’ve had since I started recapping. I’m watching everything under the sun, I swear, just haven’t found something that grabs me. javabeans: That’s the nature of following dramaland in real time—sometimes there’s a whole... More »

Odds and Ends: The KCON 2014 wrap-up
by | August 16, 2014 | 81 Comments
javabeans: Well, I know what I did this week—spent it recovering from KCON. I know technically we only were “on” for two hours (we had one hour-long panel on each day), but it sure took a lot out of me. girlfriday: The heat might’ve had something to do with that. javabeans: And the forty thousand...

Odds and Ends: One chart to rule them all
by | August 9, 2014 | 72 Comments
girlfriday: So, are you all packed for KCON? javabeans: I have a recap left to write, so obviously, nothing is packed. Recaps always come first, don’t you know? girlfriday: Oh, I KNOW. The recap schedule, it owns us. javabeans: You think we’re joking, but there’s a huge chart we plan our every movement around, and... More »

Odds and Ends: A day in the life
by | August 2, 2014 | 50 Comments
javabeans: So, here’s a question we get asked a lot: What is a typical day of work like for Dramabeans? girlfriday: I don’t know why anyone would want to know what my work day is like, but it’s strangely one of the most common questions we get when we meet people. javabeans: I think it’s...

Park Shin-yang offered lead in Iron Man
by | July 28, 2014 | 33 Comments
javabeans: Now that Ji Sung has escaped the clutches of Iron Man, the drama production is looking for a new lead, and has extended the offer to… Park Shin-yang (Sign, Painter of the Wind)? That’s a weird jump. girlfriday: That’s the strangest choice — maybe not Park Shin-yang alone in a vacuum, but when you... More »
