I wanna know who this mysterious investor is because how can they pull strings like this?! And can we ask them to pull specific strings? *cough*songjaerim*cough*

I wonder if the mystery investor might be the SK government. They would have the clout to round up lots of celebrities, and I hear they have a history of wanting to spread Korean culture and enhance Korea's prestige. Dramabeans would be a good target for them.

someone quoted it during the turbulent times right.. this guy was even on apprentice..
i don't know if he is THE investor but part of the team.. he gave an interview somewhere about DB and more specifically abotu online shopping business from the site

That was James Sun, and it was discussed here http://www.dramabeans.com/members/thatstp/activity/508121/ a while ago.

There's also an article on geekwire
https://www.geekwire.com/2016/seattle-entrepreneur-starred-donald-trumps-apprentice-expresses-post-election-fear-optimism/
which said that Dramabeans was "majority owned by his family". But that was in 2016, which makes it seem unlikely that he could be the new investor.

I'm sticking with my government theory for now, partly because I just like it more. Deeper pockets :)

Also, Beautytap says "Korean American immigrant tech entrepreneur James Sun launched Beautytap in 2017", and JB said DB and Beautytap are "unaffiliated in any official sense" in a reply under http://www.dramabeans.com/2018/11/welcome-to-our-new-editor-stroopwafel/.
Those statements together imply that he doesn't own DB now (???) even if he owned or part-owned it in 2016.

I knew this would happen. DramaBeans and GirlFriday referred to themselves as Candys, so naturally some cool chaebol investor suddenly appeared (dressed like a poor man of course) and he colluded with the janitorial staff who were actually actors in disguise and... I should watch a few less K-dramas shouldn't I?

Can we just talk about Kim So Hyun on her greetings video. I mean there is Open Thread to talk about other people. Don't disrespectful to the artist's please.

I'm fairly confident that trying to corral Beanie excitement in an orderly manner is impossible. Mary has enough to do whacking-the-bots, so if she also had to control all the wayward Beanie threads I'm afraid she would never have time to join in the fun herself

The point is actually that the staff announced they had found a buyer for the site, someone with resources and suddenly the site has enough connections that a BIG star like So Hyun is sending us a video shoutout. That suggests the money came from Korean entertainment media sources looking for a way to further advertise dramas and K-entertainment products. So the comment is a joke but it's also alluding to the fact that ... actually some rich Korean dude may have actually just bought a share in or the actual site. CJE&M? Choi Siwon (he's part of the Lotte family, he is ACTUALLY a chaebol outside of being in Super Junior)? Who knows! Maybe we'll find out soon.

This is SO COOL!!!! Investor-nim, I don't know who you are, but I shall forever refer to you as "The K Fairy Godmother", you just gave me the pumpkin I didn't know I needed. Does this make sense? It doesn't. It's ok. I'm squeeing too hard to hope to make any sense, my brain exploded into one million joyous pieces. Maybe I won't ever make sense again. THIS IS SO COOL!!! YAY DB!

Just curious, but why only Kims? Was there a Kim conference they all met at? Is our new chaebol overlord a Kim?

I'm not complaining mind you, as there are plenty of more Kims I would love to get a personal message from, but what about the Gongs, Parks, Shins, and Yoos?

LMAO I didn't notice! There are other actors in the intro reel. Maybe they just decided give us the videos by last name?

Kim So-hyun, you are one of my favorite actresses! Thank you for saying β€œhello!” I REALLY enjoyed Radio Romance. I’m fan girling so hard right now! Wishing you the best! See you around? And what on earth? How do β€œthey” know we exist? And the day Gong Yoo says hello to Dramabeans will be the day I literally swoon.

Hahaha! IKR! They got Kim sohyun! How did that happen? But judging by her hair in the video I think it happened a while back. The last time she had this kind of hair was May-June. Since July she's had long hair I think. Still so preettyy!!

Watching this on the bus is not the way to go!!! Have such a huge grin on my face, I actually can't believe this is happening!

This is so cool, I can't wait to see what new content will be available here..
Maybe a future interview with the casts and production team of airing dramas!
I would love to hear from writers and directors in a Q&A video.
Excited to see what is next in store for dramabeans! 🀩🀩❀😊

OMG!!! Love all these new videos - and can't believe Kim Sohyun is here saying hello to beanies! Now I'm just going to have unrealistic expectations about who we get featured in these videos - my vote goes to a couple of beanie faves - Gong Yoo, Yeo Jingoo (Circle 2, please!), and 2PM's Junho!
