Social Life: The 3rd Annual DramaFever Award in NYC

What is the Drama Fever Award?  #DramaFever is a web hosting site where one can watch Asian featured TV series, reality, variety shows and films.  Each year, DF rounds up a celebration toasting actors & actresses featured in Korean, Taiwanese, Chinese and Japanese television series, movies, and variety shows.  Let’s just call this a “Fan Award Event“.

My first time attending the DF award celebration, got dolled up (hair by co-worker! double french braids!) and in one word… FUN! Although frigid weather in NYC threw us a curve ball call ‘negative temps’… we still managed to enjoy ourselves at the Hudson Theater.

Let’s get the basic outta the way:

We got the VIP Gold tix [package includes: Open bar cocktail hour from 6 – 7pm; chance to meet DF staff members (not sure why this would be a perk?); seatings behind the VIP Platinum (really just 3 tables); a goodie bag (mostly sponsored by Toyota) and finger food.  My only gripe (or a few) – poor planning left the VIP guests waiting on a long line to get into the venue, finger food were unappetizing, VIP Gold seats were limited to the aisles and 1 center row in the back. The front 2 rows – assume it is reserved for sponsor’s friends & family.  Then there’s Mr. Clipboard – who refuses to let us choose our own seating – weirdo didn’t want us to take up a back row, however another party came and he allowed them to take those seats.  There’s no pre-assigned seats – – not sure if Mr. Micro-Manager knows that. LOL

Although the invite says “dress to impress in cocktail attire” – we chose to go with smart casual because it’s not the Golden Globes. My outfit: Elizabeth & James jacket & jeans, Marc by Marc Jacobs top, & Cole Haan boots (frigid weather calls for it!); my buddy: Zara jacket, Ben Sherman shirt & jeans, YSL boots.  Let’s just say we were extremely happy going smart casual.


The FUN!

What made this night so fun? Seeing all the fans scream whenever their favorite (Bias) actors/actresses’ name get call out or their images flashes on the stage screen.   The atmosphere was a combination of thrill, silly and fangirl mania.

We got to see #SeoKangJoon from #5urprise, a male actor-idol group performed, receiving love from #KimSooHyun, #JoInSung via recorded web messages and see #KimJongKook, #theTiger from #Runningman speak to his fans in English.  If you are a drama fan, you won’t be disappointed! Verdict – well worth the money spent!
