The Beavers Rear their Ugly Heads - Shoooooooo!

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 9/01/2015 03:55:00 PM
[Disclaimer: these views are my (kakashi's) own. The other bloggers on this site have not been consulted] Dramafever did something shitty? I support you!
Something a little outrageous is happening under the radar right now. Dramatic Eye, Mr. X's excellent newish Kdrama website (yes, it's subscription based, subscribe if you have not yet done so, it's utterly worth it) has received a DMCA website from Dramafever, claiming he infringed on their copyright. For .... using a poster. I assume, because there is nothing else on there that would even be remotely copyrighted. This is the site in question (yes, the offending image has since been removed - I thought we post it on here instead).

JoAnne: Bye-bye, Sweetness. We'll be so happy when you come back! Do well and stay healthy!
kakashi: Military service of K-Ent people fills me with dread. Not because they're gone for two years (I hardly like any younglings anyway, so I don't care) but because it's one of those things that make you realize how quickly time passes (just like those things that happen every year, i.e. Xmas or national beauty peagants). They go in, you think "two years! Wow! Such a long time", and then, they're out and two years have passed like they're nothing.
Jaehyus: But, but I only just discovered him!

Let's Eat with Kim Ji-hoon - Episode 3

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 8/27/2015 09:41:00 PM
I came for Kim Ji-hoon (LOVE) but am staying for the group. Well, mainly the boys plus the cute-dorky Park Hee-bon. Whom he seems really close with. I am watching you, woman >.<
This show has a load of charm (I could watch these cute Koreans walk around Paris all day and I'm even warming up to Seo Hyun-Jin) and the right mixture of droooool (Kim Ji-hoon and food. Kim Ji-hoon AND food. Doojoon and his reactions to food) and display of friendship (there is friendly teasing, lots of laughter, and what seems to be genuine fun). And no, there are no subs. But hey, just watch it. It's not that hard to understand what's going on.

~Years in Dramaland~ A journey through 2000 and 2001

Posted by MilaOnZeWeb on 8/26/2015 02:32:00 PM

Hey guyze :D -I'm writing it « guyze » because this way you know I'm cool- So … although thoughtsramble's shoulder tasted really really good -cf. the previous post, the one not on this website, the one that's here- I thought I should not impose on her. I'll guest-post for her anytime she wants because she's awesome but... see the last post was long but nearly not as long as it could have been, I was actually restraining myself. When I get in the zone I'm kind of like the Hulk of blog posts. And I don't want her to get smashed. I mean, taking a hand, an arm, a shoulder and maybe, okay, maybe even a litttttle of the neck is okay but I can't take the whole body or what will thoughtsramble have left ? So I'm chewing on PotUp now :DDDD Yep, I'm the hungry muppet and the whole internet is my cookie. That said this is different, it seems I'm here to stay so I'll just chew on this particular piece of cookie until the owner of the cookie gets really mad and chase me out. Seriously though, another round of thanks to everyone on this website for letting me write. You all rock ♥ +

kakashi: Do we have an opinion on Viki buying Soompi?
JoAnne: I get why Viki might be interested in Soompi's forums and news, etc. The more ways you capture an audience, the more firmly you have that audience. The thing is, Viki already had a community, and a unique one, at that. Now they'll look like DramaFever on steroids. Forums bring out the absolute worst in people. Sigh.
I don't do forums. I don't want 'a community'. There are a million places to find community. I want better subs, faster. I want more coverage of what's out there to watch, in the countries I came here for. BBC dramas and telenovelas are available EVERYwhere, so why do they need to be here?  Give us the weird little shows we can't find for ourselves. Pay someone to sub things DECENTLY for us. And we don't need any site to be 'exclusive.' Once in a while, okay. Every time I turn around? No. Instead, why not try to be more comprehensive with regard to offerings? Why not get faster? Why not pay people a fair wage and get quality for it?  Why not ASK us what we want, first?
With Soompi joining Viki, Viki becomes more like DramaFever. What was wrong with two entirely different types of experiences? It's not monopolies that will kill us, you know. It's monotony.

Nabi: Wow, that was brilliant, JoAnne. Brilliant.
If Viki becomes more like DramaFever we have a PROBLEM. KDramaland will be represented to us by two sites that target approximatley 12 year olds, judging from the content they currently produce (that goes for DF and Soompi).

Let's Eat with Kim Ji-hoon - Episode 2

Posted by Kakashi Sensei on 8/19/2015 12:45:00 AM
The only thing I'm interest in ...... will Kim Ji-hoon appear in this episode? (Well, it's not quite the only thing. The other things is when this show airs? Why are there only 2 episodes available?).

This is what happened last time: Doojoon, Yoseob, Seo Hyun-Jin and Park Hee-bon are in Paris. They had some fun and then went to bed. Bed is good. It's 7 am - everybody is still sleeping. Then it's 10 am - and the girls are up. It looks like then went jogging or something. The boys are also up but look far less fit. AND HERE COMES KIM JI-HOOOOOON! First appearance at 3 Minutes and 11 seconds. GOOD hair, baby.

We see how happy he was when the PDnim told him and this random female (? haha, I don't know who she is?) what the show is about. (Okay, I now know who she is: Kim Hee Jung)

kakashi: There's another So Ji-Sub to discuss: Cola Bottle Baby. Here are the lyrics. OMFG I'm laughing so hard.
JoAnne: What the actual fuck. Sub's tripping, that's all there is to it.
Nabi: Does Sub have any videos that employ women as more than just sexualized accoutrements? Oh, sorry. Stupid question. How about this one instead: is it time to worry about Sub's obsession with giant mylar letter/number balloons? No? Okay, sorry, one more try: are there as many double entendres and metaphors in the Korean version of the lyrics as there are in the translation? I'm genuinely pondering how much the universality of the sexual experience applies to sexual language as well...
How DO you say 'overcompensation' in Korean, anyway?
"So Ganzi"?
bcook: *rubs face and mutters* Oppa is really making it hard to defend his actions but Imma try. Why? Because I want him to fall for MY charms dammit *cough* Well what we have here is f#$8 it.
