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 »

Dramabeans Podcast #34
by | September 30, 2016 | 185 Comments
New podcast! Today things are a bit shorter than they’ve been in recent editions, partly because we didn’t wait as long to let dramas pile up on our plate, and partly because we had some technical difficulties that we didn’t catch until we finished recording, which led to us having to cut a bit of...

We’re out of time and out of cliffhanger exits, and the final chapter of our story is hurtling towards that final frame. Will our hero find a way to escape life as a manhwa hero, or die trying to change his fate? Will two worlds implode, or will our brains implode first? And what really... More »

Team Dramabeans: What we’re watching
by | September 11, 2016 | 342 Comments
How did everyone’s dramas stack up this week? Any big duds to avoid, or hidden gems you’ve unearthed on dusty old hard drives that you care to share? The constant turnover in dramaland is so relentless that I can’t remember the last time I went back and watched something old, but I’m about to have... More »
