2016 Year in Review, Part 7: Editors’ Picks
by | December 29, 2016 | 323 Comments
Another year has come and gone, and while I am more than happy to put 2016 behind us and look forward to greener pastures in 2017 (they’ll be greener, won’t they?), we can’t say goodbye to the year without looking back at the best of it (and the worst, in some cases) and giving the... More »

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

The weeks sure fly by, don’t they? It’s almost next year, people! *represses minor freakout* And it feels like there’s a very fine line between being on top of all your shows and getting behind a few days and suddenly feeling like you’re buried in an avalanche of unwatched episodes. I think I’d better get... More »

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo: Episode 20 (Final)
by | November 1, 2016 | 1,244 Comments
We must not have wished hard enough for an ending that would magically solve the issues endemic to this production, since I can think of no other reason why this happened. It could’ve been worse (they all can be worse), but it’s certainly not what we would’ve hoped to see at the end of this... More »

Love is a fickle thing indeed, and that love is put to the test this hour more than ever before. Does it pass that test? Not exactly. Su seems to have made up her mind when it comes to So, and any attempts to convince her to the contrary fall on deaf ears. Now all... More »

I love it when the weather turns slightly chilly, and you feel like reaching for a blanket and snuggling up on the couch with some good dramas. Maybe in honor of Halloween I should watch something scary? I’m taking recommendations! I’ll just have to convince javabeans to watch it with me, because there’s always safety... More »

There are no shortages of bitter pills for Su to swallow this episode, and for the most part, she seems to base her decisions off what’s best for So and his fledgling rule. At the same time, his being king requires him to make some tough decisions, and Su has trouble understanding why the man... More »

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo: Episode 17

It’s lonely up at the top, and no one’s coming to realize that more than So. Everyone’s becoming increasingly more isolated with all the major changes taking place within the palace, and friends seem to be in short supply. Loyal family members are in even shorter supply. But there’s always love, and these two better... More »
