Headers quiz: Answers, winners, and wallpapers!

Yes, all three! That’s why our song of the day is “Happiness” by Clazziquai (from the Who Are You? OST).

But first, I want to apologize to TP readers who suffered dizzy spells and wrist sprains because of the quiz. Apparently some of you were clicking as many as 600 times before you managed to view all 50 headers. Oh dear! To make amends for your “suffering,” I bring you the original wallpapers that I used to make the headers. (Oh wait.

The bit that killed me was seeing the words “[citation needed]” after this claim: “King of Baking, Kim Tak Goo had hit an outstanding 50.8 with its last episode on KBS.” I thought, “Uh oh, Wiki, how could you not know that the drama’s practically a ‘national’ drama on account of its astonishing ratings? Now you’re gonna rile all Baker King fans!”

But before I fell off my chair howling at the above, I was rolling my eyes at the dry and rather soulless definition of my No. 1 hobby, as well as the string of drama titles that seemed to go on and on. Let me show you what I mean.
