SnowBlob

Recommended Posts

Welcome KDrama voters! 

The responsibility to crown the "2021 Most Anticipated Dramas" rests upon your shoulders (or should I say, upon your fingers :SquirtleSquadCool: ). 

 

How to vote:

  • There will be 4 rounds of voting:

          Round 16 (13 Jan 6pm KST - 14 Jan 3pm KST)

          Quarterfinals (14 Jan 6pm KST - 15 Jan 3pm KST)

          Semifinals (15 Jan 6pm KST - 16 Jan 3pm KST)

          Final (16 Jan 6pm KST - 17 Jan 6pm KST)

 

  • Please cast your votes on each round and on each draw; using the designated emojis. There will only be two emojis used which are image.png.47d37f7d7ad3a0c4263b6dac2d178eca.png   &  image.png.9ff7fc4625bbad42a734bc98efa9e8a6.png . Click the reaction button on each draw to vote: the starry-eyed emoji to choose option 1 and the heart-eyed emoji to choose option 2. For example: If I prefer Hot Stove League on the draw that has Hyena vs Hot Stove League; then I should click on the heart-eyed reaction button to vote for it. 

 

  • The winner of each draw will advance to the next round until we will have the ultimate winner. Votes will be counted at 3pm KST everyday except for the Final. Votes that are cast or changed afterwards will not be considered. Make sure you come and visit this thread everyday to cast your vote~

 

Easy right? Maybe... 

 

There's no pressure but expect to spend time scratching your head and being torn between difficult choices :BulbaConfused:

@mademoiselle thank you for giving a great first example on how to vote (just in case people are confused on this model of voting). And sorry that I think I might make you feel uncomfortable because the two pics for the emojis are ... not tidy 

@SnowBlob At first I thought the pic was just not being displayed on mobile properly LOL

Took me a few seconds to figure out that it was intended to be that way for voting 😂

LOL same! I thought it was mean to ask me to choose between JDY & KSH. They are the Nokdu couple!!! But unfortunately being an Oppa has advantage & I'm actually unsure about River due to the PD & writer (Dr. Jin was a disaster).

I confess to being OCD about unimportant things like chopped up smilies. Especially when it's been brought to my attention, but not fixed.
