2016 Year in Review, Part 4: Embracing the modern age
by | December 19, 2016 | 99 Comments
It’s funny how December has now become synonymous with our Year-End Extravaganza, and has all but replaced Christmas in my list of inescapable winter events for a good five years now. It’s made me appreciate the seasons more, since spring is the time to slack off, seeing as how all that hard work is now... More »

2016 Year in Review, Part 2: The doctor is in
by | December 14, 2016 | 154 Comments
Every December, I’m hit with a simultaneous feeling of anticipation and dread at dusting off our Year in Review series and taking a look back at the year as a whole. I always enjoy reading what everyone else has written, and the review-writing process is both fun and illuminating—sometimes you don’t realize you even feel... More »

Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by | July 30, 2016 | 216 Comments
And the dramas just keep rolling on. These days I’m finding that there’s an unusually high number of watchable dramas that pile high on my plate—not that all are superlative shows, but there are quite a number of easy and entertaining dramas I want to watch, not ones I feel I ought to follow out...

Hey everyone, tell us how your week in drama-watching has gone! It’s been a hectic week here at Dramabeans Central, what with shows ending, new ones premiering, and javabeans laid up post-surgery (though naturally, she insisted it was an opportunity to watch more dramas and had me update her drama queue daily). My list this... More »

Mirror of the Witch: Episode 20 (Final)
by | July 20, 2016 | 115 Comments
We’re at the end of our epic Joseon fairytale, and I have to be honest, I went into this finale with pretty high expectations and more than a little bit of nervousness. Can a show stay true to the path that it’s been on for its entirety, through this many episodes, until the very end?... More »

Mirror of the Witch: Episode 19
by | July 19, 2016 | 43 Comments
It’s been one long, black-magic-infused journey, but we’re finally in the home stretch. In this episode, love is tested, from familial love, to platonic love, to full-out true love. And though I am glad Mirror of the Witch is finally coming to a close (gotta make room for the new dramas, after all), I have... More »

Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching

Shows, shows, we’re drowning in shows! Does anyone else feel like they’re glug-glug-glugging their way through the current drama offerings? I almost miss the days when everything was disappointing and I had more reasons to get out of the house, see sunshine, smell the roses and such. But who’d trade good dramas for sunshine? I’d...

Hey guys, I’m filling in for an episode too, and it’s a pretty great one, full of sweeping romance and epic showdowns. Now that Mirror of the Witch is nearing its conclusion, everyone’s putting all their cards on their table and risking lives and kingdoms to be the last one standing, and the result is... More »
