FAQ

Hi everyone! I've been posting on this blog since my sophomore year of college and throughout the times, I've noticed questions about the blog and even questions about me come up. I hope some of these answers satisfies your curiosities! 

1. What does ddoboja mean?
↪ "ddoboja" is the romanization of 또 보자 (ddo boja) which can be interpreted as: "See you again", "Let's meet again", or 
"Let's watch (it) again". I decided to name my blog "ddoboja" because I wanted to create a space where I can go on and on about my favorite Korean dramas variety shows and have engaging conversations with my readers!

2. Do you work on this blog full-time? How many people run this blog?
↪ I do not work on this blog full-time. This blog is just a hobby of mine! This blog is run by one person, me! Therefore, there is sometimes a delay with posts - thank you for understanding hehe 🤭

3. What do you do outside of the blog?
↪ I work in higher education 📚 I always dreamed about working with first-gen college students and other students who are in similar communities that I was in. I'm grateful to be in the position I am in now 💜

4. Are you even Korean?
↪ I don't know why but I get this question a lot lol Yes, I'm 100% Korean! I'm ethnically Korean - both my parents are Korean immigrants but I lived in the U.S. my entire life. Some readers think I'm Indonesian but I'm not 😅 But I would love to visit Indonesia one day! 🥺

5. Why don't you post about [insert drama/variety show]?
↪ Outside of this blog, I work a full-time job and because I'm only human, it's kinda impossible for me to cover every single drama and variety show that's currently airing. Please note that I also manage this blog on my own. I personally prefer to cover dramas/variety shows that I'm actively following because then I understand the context and references mentioned in the comments.

I do have a series on my blog called "ddoboja catches up on" where I cover dramas and variety shows that I didn't cover when it was originally airing.

6. Do you take requests?
↪ Most "requests" I take are for things that I notice that many readers in the community are requesting for me to cover ☺️ You can submit requests via DM on Twitter (@ddo_boja) but please keep in mind that I
 usually only fulfill requests that fit the content of this blog (e.g. dramas/variety shows/news about actors and entertainers). I don't really cover things about idols unless they came out on a drama/variety show or there's new about them that's garnering nationwide attention.
