    Interracial dating is becoming more accepted with each passing year; in the United States, almost 90% of today's "Millennial" generation approves of it. So what's the problem with the most common pairing, White males and Asian females? It's called "Yellow Fever," or the strong romantic interest that some men have in (exclusively) Asian women.

    "Seeking Asian Female" follows Steven, who fell in love with a Chinese woman online.
    In her award-winning documentary, "Seeking Asian Female," Debbie Lum examines yellow fever by following 60-year-old Steven on his quest to find an Asian wife. The film exploded in popularity after premiering at SXSW last month, attracting attention from not just the Asian-American community, but also media outlets including Variety Magazine, Boing Boing, and This American Life. According to WSJ columnist, Jeff Yang, yellow fever is "a hotbed of controversy for Asian-Americans." With the success of "Seeking Asian Female," the conversation has been taken to a national, and even global level.

    I had the pleasure of interviewing Debbie Lum about the challenges of making the film and her personal experience with yellow fever at the CAAMFest Opening Night Gala. Watch the Viki TV Exclusive interview below:



    In the Viki TV interview, Lum reveals that even though Steve and his Chinese bride, Sandy, had corresponded online for two years, they could barely communicate after meeting in person. Being Chinese-American, Lum was able to help translate for the couple, and in doing so even improved her own Chinese language skills.

    "Seeking Asian Female" will premiere on PBS on May 6th. If you've had experience with yellow fever, join the discussion and let us know in the comments.

    One of the most popular Korean dramas of the season, “That Winter, The Wind Blows,” is coming to an end this week. In it, Jo In Sung shines as the morally ambiguous character Oh Soo, an orphan who lost his sense of purpose in life after his first love passed away, and became a high stakes gambler and womanizer.

    Opposite him is Oh Young (Song Hye Gyo, Worlds Within), the sole heiress of the PL GroupCorporation. Estranged from her mother and brother, the blind Young is left alone after her father dies. With no one to lean on, she lives a very lonely existence until Oh Soo enters her life. But Oh Soo don't have good intentions: he sees an easy target in the blind young woman and tries to pull off his biggest scam to date -- pretending to be her long-lost older brotherand claim the family fortune.

    Supporting cast members includeKim Bum who plays Park Jin Sung, Oh Soon's best friend, and Jung Eun Ji (Answer Me 1997), who plays the spunkyyounger sister of his first love, Moon Hee Sun. 

    "That Winter, The Wind Blows" is based on the Korean movie "Love Me Not," starring Kim Ju Hyeok as Julien, the parallel to Jo In Sung's character Oh Soo, and Moon Geun Young as Ryu Min, the parallel to Song Hye Gyo's character Oh Young.

    Hi everyone. This is Rohit, VP of Engineering, and Howie, head of User Experience.

    The great thing about building a popular product is that many people learn about it and tell their friends. The challenge comes when you try to scale that product to accommodate tens and even hundreds of millions of users.

    Over the last year, we’ve been hard at work doing just that: making Viki easier to scale so that we can bring you a better performing, faster site and apps, as well as an easier-to-use set of APIs for partners of all kinds.

    We’ve already started rolling out some of these products, including a new video playerand subtitling and segmenting tools. But the most visible change will come in the next few weeks, when we start rolling out a redesigned viki.com.

    The changes will enable better discovery, navigation, video viewing and much more. We’ll let you know (via the website, blog, Facebook, Twitter) exactly when the changes will take effect, but in the meantime, here’s a sneak peak of the home page:


    And the video page:


    We can’t wait for you to try out the new Viki! In the meantime, leave a comment here or through the Help Center - we’d love to hear from you!

    Follow us on Twitter for updates on the new website!

    K-drama fans know that no drama is complete without at least one steamy shower scene. These scenes show the male lead (and their chocolate abs) brooding over their troubles while standing in a steaming shower with water pouring down their slick bodies. For some reason, most guys like to do their deep thinking while standing in a shower. Nothing goes together better than abs and angst. 

    Who cares if they are cliché? These scenes will have you wanting to watch, rinse, repeat.

    Korean idols work incredibly hard for many years to bring us our favorite songs and K-Dramas. They often also appear in TV commercials, endorse products and, of course, perform in concerts. So how much do stars earn from all this?

    Miss A's Suzy reportedly earns around US $540,000 per modeling (print advertising) deal. Although there are others who might make more than this per deal, Susy has made more than US $8.9 million in only 14 months, due to the large number of contracts that she has. YoonA, Jeon Ji Hyun and Song Hye Gyo reportedly make similar amounts per modeling deal.

    Suzy is able to command such a large paycheck because of her image and activities - she is both an idol and an actress with lead roles in top dramas such as Gu Family Book and Big. Suzy is currently the face of beauty brand The Face Shop, Reebok, Domino's Pizza and Tagatose amongst others.



    Miss A's Suzy makes a reported US$540,000 per modeling deal

    Gangnam Style became the first video in YouTube history to hit 1 billion video views. This was great news for artist PSY, who reportedly made around US$10 million in 2012, most of which came from YouTube and TV commercial deals.

    Girl group Girls' Generation reportedly made around US$43 million in 2012, while boy band Big Bang earned around US$70 million.

    See Girls' Generation film a commercial in Japan below,  in the ad members transform into adorable miniatures. 
    Some stars are also songwriters and earn royalties on the songs that they write. It was reported that, in 2012, Big Bang's G-Dragon made around US$846,000 in royalties while Kangta earns at least US$420,000 in royalties, each year.

    This is a guest post from Vivi & Coco of KDrama Fighting!


    K-Drama Love Squares: Keep ’Em or Cut ’Em?

    Anyone who has watched more than one K-drama on Viki has probably figured out that the heart of every series is the “love square.” You would think that we would get tired of them after the amount     weve seen, but they still get us every time  clichés and all. Let’s take a look at what we would keep or cut from the typical K-drama love square.

    Female Lead

    K-Drama Female Leads

    First up: K-drama female leads  love them or leave them? She’s the girl whose antics get her into all sorts of awkward situations. With two attractive rich men fighting over her, she’s also the luckiest girl in the world! Female leads are typically hardworking poor girls in desperate need of a makeover. They break down into either sassy girls who don’t let anyone mess with them, or girls who are downtrodden and overly accepting of nonsense.

    One of the things that attracted us the most to K-dramas were the spunky, confident female characters, such as Sam Soon from My Name Is Kim Sam Soon. This type of female lead is an obvious keeper. But the dramas in which the female lead follows the male lead around like a puppy (Playful Kiss) are ones we might cut.

    In their defense, downtrodden female leads are not all bad. Its really satisfying to see someone go from frumpy and passive to beautiful and empowered, but only if the progress is extreme. For example, in Scent of a Woman, the female lead starts out painfully wimpy and homely, but by the third episode, BAM, she’s a total powerhouse. In spite of problems, we would keep her because deep down, most of us still feel like that awkward girl who hopes to become powerful and miraculously snatch the man of her dreams.


    Male Lead

    Male leads  at least theyre consistent. Ninety percent of the time, they are abnormally attractive, abnormally wealthy, and abnormally selfish and rude. However, by the end of the drama, theyll end up with girls who are less attractive than they are, care less about their money, and become decent human beings with deep feelings. Although these male characters are in almost every single K-drama, we love them anyway. (Not to mention the brooding shower scenes!)

    These male leads do come with their share of problems, though. Sometimes their version of a “decent human being” isn’t decent enough. Even though we don’t want to cross Boys Over Flowers fans, you can’t tell us that were the only ones who found Jun Pyo’s intensity just a little bit unsettling. Especially when he said things like, “I will encircle you forever so that you can never leave me. There has to be some minimum standard for change.  For example, don’t beat someones faces to a pulp. Totally reasonable, right? 

    Although they are ridiculous, overall we can’t help but say KEEP the traditional male lead trope.

    K-Drama Male Leads
    Second Male Lead

    Second male leads are easy to spot. They’re the handsome ones lurking (or stalking) in the background, doing thoughtful things for the female lead while she makes ugly crying faces over the rude man she loves. They’re the type of guys your dad wants you to marry.  

    The Poor Second Male K-Drama Lead
    Second male leads occasionally end up with a terrible girl, but most of the time, they just end up brooding and sad. And for all of this brooding, they don’t even get shower scenes. Don’t they have to shower, too? Or maybe they dont shower, and that’s why they lose the girl.

    It’s this sadness that makes us dislike second male leads. And here’s why: we love them too much. We suffer from second lead syndrome on a regular basis (Flower Boy Next Door being the most recent example). So when the second male lead implies he will never love again, we get a little cranky. If you need to create jealousy in a drama, introduce an old love for a couple of episodes and then send the person on a business trip or have the person get hit by a car. Its something that happens all of the time in dramas! Just cut these nice guys and give them a break.

    Second Female Lead


    The girl we all love to hate: the second female lead. Or, as it often happens, the first love who is often a raging monster in disguise.

    The Second Female Lead
    What we would keep is the flexibility of the second female lead. Although most are monsters, some are kind, sisterly types who respond maturely to their jealousy. For example, Coco loves the second female lead in Coffee Prince.” If she could, she would be best friends with her in real life. They would hang out at art galleries and eat brunch (because she’s too classy for lunch).

    In reality, we have to recognize that sometimes second female leads literally kill people. In fact, we would rather have her be a horrible person and a murderer, rather than be tricked into liking some previously terrible person. But let’s face it: we fast forward through 90 percent of second female lead scenes anyway, so keeping them isn’t a big deal.

    To sum up, we have pretty conflicted feelings about all of these characters. But conflict is at the core of K-dramas, which is why we adore them so much!

In fact, there may be only one in an entire series!

Everyone in a Channel will see the same Notes (and Team Discussion, which is available on the neighboring tab), no matter what video you're accessing in the Subtitling tools.



    We'd love to hear what you think of Team Notes. Please send us your thoughts and comments through the Help Center

    Today, Super Junior’s Yesung enlists in the military, joining his bandmates Leeteuk and Heechul. 


    Korean Idols in Military Service 

    This year, many K-pop and K-drama stars will serve in one of the Republic of Koreas three Armed Forces branches as part of the two-year mandatory military service. Singer Se7en became one of the first idols to enlist in 2013. “I Miss You” star Yoo Seung Ho quietly joined the military following the finale of his hit show in March. Watch his goodbye to fans below:




    Fans know that two years can be a long time to wait for your favorite idol to return from military service. But take heart! Many stars will complete their service this year and return to the airwaves and stages. 

    Kim Jae Wook of Coffee Prince,” Kim Kyu Jong of boy band SS501, Ji Hyun Woo of Queen In Hyun's Man, Kim Jun of Boys Over Flowers, and singer Wheesung will all return this year. K-pop idol Rain also will complete his mandatory military service this July, and Hyun Bin recently returned after his two years of military service.

    Their returns should pacify us until our other favorite idols can complete their military service and come back to their adoring fans.

    We know that this is something that our entire community has been waiting for (as have we!), so were excited to announce that the new-and-improved Timed Comments feature is now live on all videos! Along with a new look, the improved feature now gives you the ability to write comments directly into the video. The new Timed Comments Bar also will allow you to see the location and quantity of Timed Comments in that video.

    Other new features in Timed Comments include:

    • The ability to type comments directly in the video (no more scrolling down the page and entering the time stamp!)
    • The new Timed Comments Bar to indicate the locations of Timed Comments, with the ability to hover to read and click to navigate to that location within the video
    • Larger font size (the change was made based on community feedback from the beta version)
    • New design to compliment the new Video Player and Viki.com
    • The addition of commenters profile picture and username (also coming soon is the ability to click and go to the commenter’s profile)
    • The option to share your comments on Twitter

     We hope you love the new Timed Comments as much as we do. Let us know what you think by commenting or sending us a note through the Help Center!

    May 12 is Mother's Day in many countries around the world. And what better way to celebrate, and honor our mother-figures, than to look back at some of our favorite mommy memories:

    Like when we brought our first crush over for dinner and Mom kept talking about our days wetting the bed.


    Or when we went to a fancy restaurant and she tried a little too hard to blend in.


    Or when she started borrowing from our wardrobe and copying our fashion:



    There was that span of about 15 years when we didn't want to be seen in public with her,


    Especially when she was trying to be a "Cool Mom."


    And that time when she caught us sneaking out of the house and we just said,


    But she never believed us.


    Spending the rest of the night at home, we could never forgive her.


    Until she suggested that we catch up on our dramas with Viki!


    In the end, we love our amazing mothers and mother-figures with all our hearts. Starting this weekend, show the special lady in your life how much you care, and spend quality time watching the best programs together:

    Korean Dramas like Sungkyunkwan Scandal, I Do, I Do, and King of Dramas all feature strong, caring mothers who support their child, give unconditional love, and know how to kick butt too. In the world of K-Drama, this kind of Mom is actually hard to find.

    Go-Eun's mother was encouraging and feisty in King of Dramas
    Happy Mother's Day from all of us at Viki!
