Today marks the sixth anniversary of the "K-Drama" column. To celebrate and to say thank you to the weekly fans who read this column, I would like to do a drawing for six lucky winners picked randomly to come to a dinner hosted by myself on a date to be determined. I will also give out autographed material from Korean celebrities to those who make the lucky six. I will do my best to answer any questions regarding Korean entertainment and future celebrity visits to Hawaii. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell me which column was your favorite. Mahalo for all your support.
