Taxonomy considerations from the 2015 Beanie Awards

Think you know Korean dramas? Wait until you see these categories and the options on Dramabean's 2015 Bean Awards. Did you see that Ji Sung had his own category? Then check out the reader comments. Can you figure out the abbreviations? IRY, KMHM, OMG, SFD… catch up if you can. 

Every year when Dramabeans rolls out their year in review, it’s akin to a gathering of drama addicts reminiscing the good and bad journeys we’ve shared in dramas. Sharing the high and low points, bewaring of spoilers for those who haven’t caught up, we fangirl/boy as much as we can and relive the feels without spending another 16 hours and then some.

Which drama had the best use of amnesia as a plot line? How many dramas used it as a story trope? How many medical dramas can you watch? Did you even know that there were so many drama remakes / adaptations that happened this year? 

In the middle of this all, building a strong taxonomy to bring these together, Viki.com has been doing a pretty good job of curating drama collections for “noona romance”, high school dramas, bromances, rags to riches. And, yes, you could even search by (some) drama abbreviations.

Yes, it’s been a good year for Korean dramas.
