  • 11/05/13--15:00: Movember Is Here!
  • November brings rain, cold and wind in many countries around the world. But a growing initiative is helping men stay warm in the fast-approaching winter. Movember is here!

    Movember is an mens health awareness campaign that started in Australia 10 years ago and has since grown (pun intended) into an international movement. By encouraging men to put away their razors and grow a “mo” (mustache or beard) this month, men around the globe hope to raise awareness and money for prostate and testicular cancers and mental health issues. Taking part is incredibly easy. Men, to take part, you simply let your facial hear grow in November. And, ladies: encourage the men in your lives to get involved.

    Need inspiration to grow and groom your mustache (or beard)? Look no further than some great dramas from this year.

    Gao Godfrey in Never Give Up, Dodo

    Gao Godfrey plays the hilarious Xu Fei in the Chinese Web drama Never Give Up, Dodo. His facial hair is a perfect fit for his character, not to mention the currently airing show is just in time for Movember!

    Gao Godfrey

    Lee Jun Ki in Two Weeks

    In the K-drama Two Weeks, we see get an awesome mustache on Jang Tae Sang (played by Lee Jun Ki) as he fights to stay alive and elude the authorities and some really bad gangsters. We love how the facial hair adds to his ninja/spy outfit.

    Lee Jun Ki

    Kim Nam Gil in Shark

    Kim Joon (played by Kim Nam Gil) in the K-drama Shark rocks this great mustache. Were hoping he still has it even though the show has wrapped!

    Kim Nam Gil
    Yoon Shi Yoon in Flower Boy Next Door

    Check out the mo of Enrique (played by Yoon Shi Yoon) from the K-drama Flower Boy Next Door. We think it goes well with his fun, energetic character!

    A famous quote by the English playwright William Congreve says, Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

    A woman can start out as your “BFF” (best friend forever), but what happens when that relationship ends up on the rocks? There is nothing more treacherous — or more fun to watch — than a woman who suddenly becomes your worst enemy. Here are three examples of female relationships gone awry from our favorite television dramas and anime on Viki.







    When new students arrive at the White Witch Academy in this 2013 Japanese drama series, the girls must put the pains of their past lives behind them to learn the art of witchcraft. The new class of girls bond over their shared challenges to develop their magical powers. But that closeness goes horribly wrong when they are faced with their last challenge: to turn against each other to become a White Witch. Who will be the last girl standing?






    In this Japanese anime series, Nanako attends a prestigious girls high school and is invited to join an exclusive sorority” by her new friend, Mary. But Mary tries to drive a wedge between Nanako and her childhood best friend, Tomoko. Could Mary have something up her sleeve in intentionally causing problems between the best friends?

    The Greatest Love



    Goo Ae Jung (played by Gong Hyo Jin) and Kang Se Ri (played by Yoo In Na) were in the same popular K-pop girl group that broke up years ago in this 2011 Korean drama series. The former friends are no longer on good terms over some unknown event that happened years ago. Se Ri, who is now the bigger star, wants to make sure that Ae Jung continues to live marginally as a has-been. Will Se Ri also steal away Ae Jung’s man?

    What is your favorite example of a female relationship that goes from good to bad? Let us know!

    The popular Korean R&B girl group Brown Eyed Girls has been making the news a lot this year. After Ga In’s appearance in Psy’s music video for “Gentleman” to the group’s latest comeback single, “Kill Bill,the latest news is that Miryo and Narsha will debut as M&N, the all-new Brown Eyed Girls sub-unit!





    The new sub-unit released its first single, Tonight on November 11, which also happens to be Pepero Day (similar to Valentines Day) in Korea. The song, written by BEG’s JeA, was co-produced by Miryo and Narsha. Tonight is an urban hip hop track and is about a girls confession to a guy.


    Here’s the music video and shout-out video to fans:

    Love is in the air for Korean celebrities this year. A few months ago, we watched the blockbuster wedding ceremonies for Lee Byung Hun/Lee Min Jung and Ji Sung/Park Bo Young. It seems to now be in vogue for stars to tie the knot after meeting on the set of TV dramas and movies. This time, we celebrate the modest and low-key marriage of two talented musicians.

    Indie musician Jo Jung Chi proposed to his girlfriend of 11 years, R&B singer Jung In, while filming the final episode of the reality show, We Got Married. The real-life couple played virtual newlyweds as part of the show, performing such married life tasks as moving into a new home and entertaining dinner guests.


    Listen to Jung Ins lovely ballad, Rainy Season

    As a finale event for their segment on We Got Married, Jo Jung Chi surprised Jung In with a marriage proposal. However, Jung In is opposed to the idea of a big wedding ceremony and the institution of marriage itself, so she responded sadly with, Dont do this.


    Jung In and Jo Jung Chi have decided to forgo a traditional wedding.
    Two months later, the couple announced that there will be a marriage after all — but without a wedding. Jung In and Jo Jung Chi will complete the legal marriage registration, have a small get-together with family, and plan out their honeymoon.

    Congratulations from Viki to this kind and talented pair!

    This year, Korean boy band Infinite went on its very first world tour, visiting all of its fans from Seoul  to Jakarta, Indonesia; San Jose, California; and even London! Fans from all over the world prepared themselves for this very special concert, learning all the words to their favorite songs and even preparing presents for the band’s members!


    Of course, being fans of Infinite, we had to go and prepare ourselves for the concert as well!

    First, we learned all the words to the band’s newest song, “Destiny.”



    Then, we painted our nails in celebration of Infinite’s official color (“metal pearl gold”) and the first world tour! The gold is for Infinite, and the blue-grey represents the color scheme of the newest album, “Destiny.”


    After that, we got ready to attend the concert with our friends!

    Vikis Brittany and Stephanie with friends!
    At the concert, we were not disappointed! Infinite sang some fan favorites, including “Destiny,” “Love U Like U,” “Man in Love”and “Before the Dawn”!





    It was incredible to see the boys live, and their passion and joy of meeting with their fans truly showed in their performance! There was plenty of “aegyo” (making cute faces) and fan interaction — Woohyun even gave a rose to one very lucky fan!

    L sings to his adoring fans!

    Sungyeol and Dongwoo perform during the finale!

    The boys serenade us with Going to You

    L takes solo stage

    Infinite performs Nothings Over

    Sunggyu walks through a sea of fans

    Sungyeol touches a fans hand

    Woohyun gives a thumbs up to the fans

    Infinite waves goodbye to everyone

    Overall, the concert was amazing, and we absolutely cannot wait for the boys to go on another world tour and visit us! Infinite, fighting!

    Special thanks to our friends at 24-7 KPOP for all the wonderful photos of the concert!

    In celebration of our new Taiwanese dramas, Love Familyand Deja Vu, we decided that this week’s edition of Let’s Cook With Viki would star one of our favorite Taiwanese drinks — Bubble Milk Tea (Boba)!




    Bubble milk tea, also known as pearl milk tea, tapioca milk tea, and boba tea, is a popular drink across Asia and has even found its way into the United States, Canada and Australia! The little bubbles at the bottom of the glass are sweet gummy pearls that add a fun element to any drink!

    Ready to make some bubble milk tea? Then let’s grab our ingredients!
    • 1 package of quick-cook tapioca/sago palm pearls (note: these are not the same tapioca pearls found in Western tapioca pudding)
    • 3 teaspoons of brown sugar
    • 1 8-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk
    • 8-10 Tablespoons of good quality black tea

    Ready to go? Remember to wash your hands and clean your workspace!

    First, bring the 8 to10 Tablespoons of black tea to a boil in an 8-quart pot.* Boil for 10 minutes, or until the tea has steeped to a very dark color. (If you’d prefer your tea to be less bitter or stronger, simply adjust the amount of tea leaves and water.)

    * Note: Since extra-large tea strainers are something most of us don’t own, I chose to place the leaves in a metal fine-mesh strainer which I sat on top of the boiling water, this keeps us from having to strain the leaves out later!



    Next, we poured one can of sweetened condensed milk into the tea (after the leaves are removed) and stirred until this was well blended.

    While we waited for our tea to cool, we took our quick-cook tapioca pearls and added them to another pot of boiling water. Once the pearls turned soft and dark in color, we added three teaspoons of brown sugar and mixed well. Then, we drained the pearls and rinsed them with cold water!

    Be sure to use a large pot or risk having the pearls spill over while boiling!


    Once the tea is cool, add your pearls to your drink, top it off with a boba straw and serve!

    Bubble Milk Tea

    A few notes...


    • If you’re not using the “quick-cook” or “five-minute” tapioca pearls, be sure to read the package instructions for how to cook the pearls, since you may need to boil them twice before you can enjoy!
    • Pearls can’t be made too far ahead of time. If you have them sit in a refrigerated container overnight, they will congeal and become a gummy clump. It’s best to only make enough for immediate consumption instead of making too many and trying to reserve some for later!
    So, how’d your version of bubble milk tea turn out? Know another dish we could make? Let us know in the comments below!

    Viki has an amazing global community, full of countless stories that deserve to be shared. Here is one such story about an avid Viki user and contributor.

    For Sonia, a 39-year-old mother of four living in Paron, a commune in the Burgundy region of France. Viki has been her crutch and lifeline for the past four years. Diagnosed with breast cancer 10 years ago, Sonia said she was looking online for Asian dramas and movies to help take her mind off her grueling treatment regimen. She came upon Viki by chance four years ago, and the rest, as they say, is history. Viki has become an important part of her daily life ever since, helping her to experience “normal,” uplifting interactions with people who don’t know about her illness. When she’s not busy working as a sports educator, tending to her husband of 22 years, or being a mother to her four children (ages 21, 19, 15 and 10), Sonia says she, on average, spends several hours a day on Viki and has been a Qualified Contributor for the past two years. Read her amazing story below.
    What's your Viki username?
    Guilitoy
    What language(s) do you speak?
    English, Spanish, French, Japanese, Korean
    Which activities do you do often on Viki?
    Subtitling, Moderating, Editing
    How did you discover Viki?
    I found Viki by chance four years ago. When I was going through cancer, I looked for Asian dramas and movies to get my mind off my cancer and preoccupy my mind during the difficult treatments. Since then, Viki has been an important part of my life.
    What do you like most about Viki?
    During my various hospitalizations [for breast cancer treatment], I would sometimes be in total isolation with only my PC and Internet access to keep me company. Being on Viki to track dramas that I like and participate in various projects, the days always marched very quickly. I did not have time to think about anything else. Psychological pain became nonexistent. Being able to communicate with others without revealing my illness was really liberating for me. I was able to connect with many people through the various projects, and share many exchanges where we talked about everything and nothing — giving the impression that I was just a normal person. So Viki has been a major support for me and continues to be.
    Viki also has removed language barriers. I love the diversity of the shows offered on Viki. It helps people discover what exists in other countries and allows others to discover what exists in France. I’ve also met a lot of wonderful people through Viki, and I hope to meet many more.
    Has Viki helped you to learn or practice another language?
    Absolutely! For me and for my daughters, Viki has been the best English teacher. My daughters have made enormous progress in English and Spanish.
    Have you made friends in the Viki community?
    Yes, I have made friends. How? When working on the same projects, you connect with other people. We realize that we have the same tastes. We end up meeting each other. And sometimes, you end up meeting in person.
    What’s your favorite genre on Viki?
    Korean Dramas, Taiwanese Dramas, Japanese Dramas, Anime, Telenovelas (Spanish-language dramas), Thai Lakorns, Chinese/Hong Kong Dramas
    What’s your favorite drama that you’re watching right now?
    The last drama that I watched recently, just as the viewer, was three seasons of “God’s Quiz.” @Kobolt recommended it to me, so I started watching it and I loved the concept and the script. I think that to treat the subject of rare diseases through each episode changed many other police and medical dramas. And I discovered the actor Ryu Deok Hwan, whom I think was made for this role. But I also loved “Gu Family Book” just because of Lee Seung Gi and Choi Jin Hyuk!

    This winter, K-pop idols are taking lead roles in several anticipated new dramas. IU, known as the “Nation’s Little Sister” in Korea, will star in “Beautiful Man.” Yoona from Girls’ Generation will play a spunky reporter in “Prime Minister and I.”

    IU’s character in “Beautiful Man” is a very ordinary girl named Kim Bo Tong. In addition to being a strange-sounding girl’s name, “Bo Tong” literally means “average” in Korean! IU has acted in past dramas such as “Dream High,” and we’re excited to see her take on another cute, underdog role alongside the beautiful man himself, Jang Geun Suk.


    IU plays average schoolgirl Kim Bo Tong in Beautiful Man
    Prime Minister and I” is not Yoona’s first drama, either. She co-starred in the romantic melodrama, “Love Rain” with Jang Geun Suk. Yoona will shed her sleek idol image for the role, sporting a combination of curly hair and baggy clothes.

    Yoona is a courageous reporter in Prime Minister and I

    Miss Korea” stars the beautiful Lee Yeon Hee and premieres on December 18. The lovely actress is not a K-pop idol, but here’s a fun fact: Lee Yeon Hee was an S.M. trainee who almost debuted as part of Girls’ Generation! She chose to pursue her acting career instead.

    Which K-pop singer are you looking forward to seeing on Viki this winter? Let us know!

    Nicknamed the Brown Eyed Boys before their official debut, the Korean boy band LC9, which is short for League of Competition #9, was said to be the male version of its labelmate, the popular girl group Brown Eyed Girls.

    The end of the year is fast approaching, and you know what that means! For many of us, its the time of year that forces us to enjoy lots of together time with our loved ones and extended family and friends, whether we want to or not!

    So if you and your family celebrate the upcoming holiday season — whether itThanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, St. Nicholas Day, Bodhi Day, Eid-al-Adha, Los Posadas, Boxing Day, or the New Year  we recommend that you get into the right holiday spirit by watching the following dramas on Viki.

    Do you want to feel thankful for your family and your many blessing this year? Do you want to know that youre not the only one who has to deal with crazy family members? Do you want the courage to find new love, a long-lost love or family you never knew you had? We have the drama for you!

    Dramas That Make You Feel Grateful Your Family Didnt Cast You Away

    Just You — In this Taiwanese drama, Qi Yi (played by Aaron Yan) is abandoned at a young age by his mother. The sense of abandonment affects his entire outlook on life, and he grows up desperately craving motherly affection.


    The Tragedy of W — Similarly in this Japanese drama, twin sisters are forsaken by their families and raised in very different circumstances. Satsuki is abandoned by her own grandfather and grows up in poverty, working as a cleaning lady in a nightclub. Mako (both characters played by Emi Takei) grows up in a wealthy family but is desperate to escape it to pursue her own dreams. 




    Only You — In this Philippine drama, two sisters are separated in childhood when their father abandons their mother and goes to live with another woman. Nea (played by Claudine Barretto) is left behind with their mother while Jasmine (played by Bea Alonzo) goes to live with their father and new stepmother. Nea grows up with nothing while Jasmine grows up enduring cruel mistreatment from her stepmother.




    Trapped — In this Venezuelan telenovela, a woman not only frames her best friend for murder and takes over her life, but she also sends away her friends daughters, Diana (played by Alejandra Lazcano) and Gaby (played by Mariana Torres), to be raised by some old woman.


    While these dramas deal with pain and loneliness, the endings will have you believing in family again!

    Dramas With Families Crazier Than Yours

    Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 4 — No other family can make your family look absolutely normal than the Kardashians, an American family that is famous for just being famous. Watch the fourth season of this reality series that chronicles the over-the-top lives of matriarch Kris, husband Bruce Jenner (former Olympic champion), and siblings Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob.


    Get Married 3 — In this Indonesian drama, Mae (played by Nirina Zubir), who comes from a poor background, was always made to feel like she wasnt good enough for Rendy’s (played by Fedi Nuril) well-to-do family. When they couldn’t stop their marriage, Mae’s in-laws find new ways to torment her in her married life, although she’s already crazed out of her mind trying to deal with her new triplets!



    In comparison to these families, yours will seem very tame!

    Dramas That Prove Only Your Family Has Your Back


    Love Family  Sheng Ren (played by Chris Wang) doesnt grow up with much love and affection from his family in this Taiwanese drama. And his mother is forcing him to marry before he reaches 30, whether or not he’s ready for marriage. But when he arrives at an inn called the Happy House and sees the love and support of the Xu family, he begins to realize what family is really about.




    Made in Cartagena —In this Colombian telenovela, there’s nothing the characters won’t do for their beloved family members. Harvey (played by Fernando Solorzano) will go to the ends of the earth to make someone pay for killing his beloved son. Flora (played by Villalobos), his niece, will risk her life to help him and do much more to try to get her brother out of jail.



    Heavens Garden — In this Korean drama, Jae In (played by Yoo Ho Jeong) goes against her family’s wishes and marries a divorced man with a daughter, and her father disowns her. Years later, when her husband is imprisoned after his business goes bankrupt and then she finds out that he has been cheating on her, the only place that Jae In can turn to is her family members, who will take her back and allow her to put her life back together.



    We hope these dramas will make you feel warm and fuzzy about your own family and give you the courage to survive this holiday season. If there’s a go-to drama that you like to turn to during the holidays, let us know what it is and why!
