    Hello!!!! Welcome back!

    There is a lack of recaps and news as of late. Something is happening behind the scenes, although it’s not entirely clear what. I’m a bit worried but I’m trying to be patient, even though this has been going on since January or so.

        I’m doing well! Loving Miss Hammurabi so far and also keeping up with Lawless Lawyer! Jumping for joy at the fact that SIG is going to be back on my screen in a few months! Looking forward to Why Secretary Kim and Are You Human, Too?~

        Plus, of course, spending way too much time on the fan wall.

        How are you? 😊

          I am all good now that I am back to my favorite baby (that would be my pc with internet and dramas)
          watching ‘About time’ and obsessing over ‘Come and hug me’
          Binging Go Back Couple.
          Constantly watching variety shows as well.
          looking forward to Are You Human, Too?
          And I danced with Bebe in joy after the SIG cb news

      It seems like this may be a subtle hint that this the way DB will go forward from now on. Or maybe I’m just reading too much into it.

        Gosh, I hope not! I like the fan wall but I sorely miss having plenty of other content. DB is by far the most civil, respectful community when it comes to drama discussion and I would hate for that to be lost.

        I’m wondering if something is going on in both the recapping world and here on DB. Almost every site that recapped dramas has either stopped, disappeared or not used screencaps. I know on several sites there were comments that threats were made by companies if images were used, or just plain take downs happened – ninja-reflection was taken down overnight by their hosting site with no warning, even after they got an explanation and could prove they weren’t an illegal streaming site they couldn’t get their files or page back and had to move to a different provider. I think that in many cases it’s just deemed too risky.
        As far as DB goes, I’m wondering what’s going on with JB and GF, both seem to be MIA. Their lives are not my business nor do I think they should be required to keep us informed of what they do with their site, but I’m starting to wonder if they maybe they have stopped being involved altogether in DB. I haven’t seen a vlog or a post for a long time, no recap since A Korean Odyssey. I’m feeling a bit adrift after years of lurking and reading, wondering where everyone has gone and just what exactly is going on. On some level, I feel that we are sort of owed *some* information as to what’s happening since we provide the traffic.

        I don’t know, I’m cranky without my A/C on.

          Thanks for the info on the rest of the recapping world. I had no idea.
          JB and GF had mentioned quite a few times last year that they were feeling a drama slump, and so initially, I had thought that that was what this long break was.

          I’ve been experiencing a drama slump as well as a DB slump recently. For me, part of the fun of watching was in coming here and reading comments and thoughts. Without that, my drama watching has lessened as well. I’ve been active-ish on the fanwall, but I rarely read the posts now because they’re hardly updated and don’t always go into the same depth as before.

          I don’t think you’re being cranky at all – I feel like we’re owed *some* information as well.

          That’s interesting about the other recap sites, but if that were the case you’d think they would let us know. Way back when 7th Level Civil Servant was being recapped, KBS (I think?) was being annoying and demanded DB take down their screencaps. They wrote a post addressing the issue, letting all Beanies know, and hilariously put up stick figure drawings in place of the screencaps.

          If they could address an issue like that in the past, why can’t they now?

            I’d completely forgotten about that! Those stick drawings were hilarious.

          @modernflapper Oh wow. What you’ve mentioned regarding the recapping sites is quite interesting. If something is indeed happening, I hope it gets sorted out.

          They’ve been posting about premiers but that’s it. I have the same thought about copyright infringement lawsuits as well and mentioned it on my wall and the OT. It’s sad.

        It’s not an indication of anything. :/ I just feel terrible because some people feel entitled to say harsh things without thinking that there’s a real live person reading what they say. I would really like to ignore the outrageous ones and be “above it all” but I haven’t learned how to be a robot yet. For now, I’ll have to take comfort in oppa’s embarrassing past and gifs of veins of unpolished beauty. .____.

          Really sorry if us beanies hurt the minions. We love this site, where we can talk about our beloved dramaland. Hope the site will be loved as it has been despite all these.

          @mary I apologize sincerely if I said anything harsh, I did not mean to come across that way at all. I appreciate all the work that goes on behind the scenes – I’m surrounded by people in the software/web business, I see what they go through to keep things going. Sometimes our frustrations spill over into the wall, maybe not as it should.

          I’m deeply sorry mary. I’ve been avoiding writing anything about this because, as you mentioned, you’re real people and you’ve always been one of us avid Beanies. You were genuinely feeling down and I twisted that into something hurtful for you.

          Here’s oppa looking at me in disappointment

          and oppa telling you to stay strong
