[We’ve got a special post for you today, brought to you by TK, the author of the excellent blog Ask a Korean. We’ve admired his well-researched and in-depth posts for a long while, so when we recently connected and TK expressed an interest in sharing a K-pop-related question/answer post for the Dramabeans audience, we were...

Shut Up: Lyrics edition
by | February 25, 2012 | 87 Comments
I haven’t done one of these in a while, but Shut Up: Flower Boy Band seems like a good drama for lyrics translation. It’s a show that has done a good job incorporating music into its storytelling; it’s not hit-you-over-the-head with the songs, but allows them to carry some of the narrative. Plus, well, I... More »

Dream High: Episode 10
by | February 7, 2011 | 323 Comments
Cute, fun, and angsty, all wrapped up in a big bow of feel-good. (And then some feel-nervous.) Now that’s my kind of episode. No Song of the Day today, because there were so many in the episode proper. It’s a veritable extravaganza of song ‘n dance.... More »

It’s no surprise that Jang Geun-seok will be contributing to the OST of his new drama Mary Stayed Out All Night, since he’s sung for multiple roles in the past. Most notably, he sung several tracks for You’re Beautiful as the leader of its pop-idol band A.N.Jell. What IS a surprise is the perplexing title... More »

Pop Culture: The Fairy and the Woodcutter
by | August 1, 2010 | 138 Comments
One of the reasons girlfriday and I wanted to open up the blog to this Pop Culture series is because we’d sometimes like to depart from the norm and muse about stuff. It allows us to take something from pop culture or society at large and run with it. Girlfriday took on the piggyback ride... More »

Artist profile: Lucid Fall
by | December 25, 2009 | 37 Comments
I posted up a song, “Les Miserables,” from Lucid Fall‘s new album this week for the Episode 7 Will It Snow For Christmas recap, which got me once again marveling at how wonderfully composed his songs are. The track has a Part 2 sung by a woman, and the two fit together as two halves... More »

Profile/Giveaway #2: YI SUNG YOL
by | June 20, 2008 | 151 Comments
First, I’d like to say that I know having lots of ads can be distracting on blogs. I’ve deliberated a lot on which ad blocks to use or not, and I’m never perfectly satisfied. But the ads are also why I’m able to give away free stuff like this, so there’s that silver lining. Since... More »

Hong Gil Dong: Episode 24 (Final)
by | March 26, 2008 | 234 Comments
Wow. Um, wow. The more I think about the ending of Hong Gil Dong, the more I like it. I’ve mentioned that the series was starting to feel repetitive in recent episodes, and I’d wondered how this episode would wrap everything up to satisfaction. Some people aren’t going to be happy, and I admit my... More »

Yes, but what does it SAY?!
by | October 7, 2007 | 27 Comments
Okay, this post has nothing to do with kdramas, but I occasionally post song lyrics and Tablo sometimes acts, so I’m covered. Not that it matters. Just saying. Rapper and songwriter (and yes, sometimes actor) Tablo has revealed a short story he wrote in English on the variety show Sunday, Sunday Night. Tablo’s quite famous... More »
