    Ever wondered who creates the subtitles you see on Viki? Our amazing community of volunteers are people just like you: passionate fans of global TV. Together, we’re breaking down the language barriers between great entertainment and fans everywhere!

    Subtitling is easy, fun, addictive and comes with cool benefits (see “QC status” below). If you’ve wanted to try but never knew where to start, welcome to
    Viki U -- a series of tutorials, tips, tools and more, all designed to get you started quickly. Favorite the Viki U Channel to get notified when new videos are added!

    How to Subtitle

    There are literally thousands of videos to subtitle or edit. However, on popular on-air channels with many volunteers, it’s courtesy to let the channel manager or moderators know that you’d like to contribute.

    To get started, navigate to a video that you’d like to subtitle. Then click on the “Subtitle Editor” button that appears at the top right of the video. Watch this quick tutorial on subtitling:




    How to Segment


    Good segments are key to good subtitles. A segment is a specific part of the video into which a subtitle or a line of text is written. Segmenting is an excellent way to volunteer, even if you don’t speak another language!

    New to segmenting? Test your skills on a short clip (e.g.,
    music video or news) or a Channel with fewer volunteers (e.g., Classics). Only “designated segmenters” can add segments to on-air dramas; to become a designated segmenter, please contact the Channel Manager or Moderator.

    To get started, click on the “Subtitle Editor” button at the top right of all video pages. Watch this tutorial on how to segment (the community organized mentoring programs
    Segmenting 101 and Learning by doing include more tips):




    Become a Qualified Contributor (QC): Contribute to and Watch Videos Not Available in Your Region

    Giving Qualified Contributor (QC) status to volunteers is our way of recognizing the most passionate, active and supportive members of the community, or those who consistently contribute, and have written at least 3,000 high-quality sentences or cut 2,000 segments.

    Being a QC on Viki means:
    • Global video viewing: Most videos on Viki are not available globally due to license restrictions; however, QCs are able to contribute to and watch most videos, regardless of regional availability. Because our QCs are the best in the world, this also helps ensure quality subtitles in multiple languages. 
    • Tickets to concerts and events: We often get tickets to special events, premiers and concerts; we give these to QCs in the event region whenever possible. 
    • Exclusive gifts, games and prizes: Receive occasional QC-only gifts and prizes and play games only available to QCs. 
    • Official certification for students and professional translators: For those looking for experience on resumes and college entrance applications, we can provide an official certificate of your contributions on Viki. 
    • Early access to information about shows, product updates and more: Receive a regular email newsletter that includes information about upcoming titles, product releases and much more. You learn about it before anyone else does. 
    • More perks coming soon!

      To apply for QC status, send us a message through the
      Viki Help Center, telling us why you'd make a great QC. A Viki staff member will review your application and get back to you quickly!

    If there is one story that has stood the test of time and crossed international borders to reach the hearts of millions, its the story of the Flower 4 or F4. The original shōjo manga, Hana Yori Dango (花より男子), was published in Japan from 1992 to 2003 and was adapted into an anime series and two anime films. The story follows a working-class girl who attends an elite private school for children of the wealthy that is terrorized by a group of snobbish, good-looking boys known as the Flower 4 or F4.” Since the animes popularity in Japan, it also has been made into very popular television dramas in Taiwan, Japan, Korea and China.

    Take a look at the photos below: Which actor looks the most like his or her manga character? 

    Cast members for the F4 from around the world

    The brooding, possessive, wavy-haired leader of F4 (known as Domyouji Tsukasa or Gu Jun Pyo) is the bad boy who drives fans wild, despite his spoiled and arrogant behavior. Korean actor Lee Min Ho and Japanese actor Matsumoto Jun were extremely well-suited for this role; both their reputations skyrocketed after playing the character. 


    Watch the first episode of the Korean Drama Boys Over Flowers to see the world-famous F4 entrance scene:



    There has been much debate over the years about which version of the F4 is the hottest and has the most chemistry as a group. Vote now to let us know which is your favorite!

    This is a guest blog post from Coco and Vivi of Kdrama Fighting!


    While watching K-dramas on Viki, we sometimes wonder how we would react to the female leads if they were our best friends in real life.  Can you just picture the text conversations we would have?  In Part 1 of Texts to a Bestie, we imagined texting Jan Di, Eun Chan, Gong Ah Jung and Park Ha. Here are more imaginary texts with some of our favorite K-drama heroines: 



    2. You’re Beautiful (2009)


    3. Full House (2004)


    5. Personal Taste (2010)


    Which other Kdrama heroines would you like to text?

  • 06/03/13--18:07: Why Do We Love Bromance?
  • Bromance, a combination of the words brother and romance, is the overwhelmingly adorable brotherly bond between male friends. In dramas, these friendships are extremely close, where one would do anything for the other and, often, these friends provide more emotional support than even family members in times of need.

    Some dramas are worth watching, for the bromance alone. Not sure what we mean? Here are a few examples:

    School 2013: Kim Woo Bin and Lee Jong Suk play an inseparable pair of high school friends. A normal day for these boys consists of sharing lunch and fighting off a gang of thugs. Seeing them bond over a rough upbringing and social isolation is enough to melt any fans heart.

    Watch Episode 13 to catch this bromantic gem!
    Sungkyunkwan Scandal: Song Joong Kis touching compassion and concern for his best friend (played by Yoo Ah In) completely stole the spotlight from the dramas main couple. Viewers see these moments of tenderness as more pure and beautiful than most romantic relationships.

    Watch episode 19 of Sungkyunkwan Scandal for a truly epic bromance
    Bridal Mask: During the 1930s Japanese occupation of Korea, one of the most tragic dramas in history unfolds between fellow police officers, Kang To and Shunji. Driven apart by murder, secrets and the pursuit of the same woman’s love, the childhood friends still find ways to understand each others pain in incredibly powerful scenes. Watch Episode 7 below:


    The best friends in Bridal Mask share an incredible bromance 
    Whether you watch for the playful teasing, the physical closeness, or the emotional bonding, bromance appeals to K-drama fans in many different ways. What is your favorite bromance moment in a drama?

    Have you ever wanted to subtitle but never thought you could because you only know one language? Here's a great way to contribute: transcribing or captioningfrom and to your native language is an easy, fun way to get started on your road to becoming a QC.

    Transcribing or Captioning means watching a video that's available in your language and simply typing the words you hear in the Subtitle Editor. Transcriptions from a native speaker are valued by the community (and by viewers) and often set the foundation for accurate subtitles in other languages! By writing a transcript, you make it easier for non-native speakers to translate the video into their own languages.

    1) To find a video in your language, try using the 'Country' filter while browsing TV, movies, or music videos.

    It's easy to get started:



    2) Open the Subtitle Editor and choose your "from" and "to" language.


    3) For refreshers on How to Subtitle and How to Segment, watch these videos

    Happy subtitling!

    One of our favorite K-pop groups is B2ST (BEAST), which is made up of Yoon Doojoon, Jang Hyunseung, Yong Junhyung, Yang Yoseob, Lee Kikwang and Son DongwoonTheyre charismatic, stylish, cute, hardworking, multitalented and more! Whats not to love?

    Since the group debuted in 2009, the members have delighted us with their numerous charms and talents. Take a look at a few reasons why we love B2ST!



    1) They're hardworking and humble.

    In the documentary “MTV B2ST,” we got a behind-the-scenes look at B2ST’s pre-debut period, and the hard work, sweat and tears it took for them to become a team.



    2) Their songs, choreography and style are catchy and unique.

    You can see these qualities come alive in the music video for Beautiful Night, a single off their latest album. This video is only available in Southeast Asia.


    3) They have many talents, including acting!


    You can catch Kikwang in Me Too, Flower! as a young policeman who has a crush on his older colleague, and in My Princess, for which he won the Best New Actor award for his performance as Gun-I, a chef in the Imperial Palace.



    Lee Kikwang in Me Too, Flower!
    Lee Kikwang in My Princess

    Junhyung is starring in the currently on-air drama, Monstar, as a K-pop idol who gets into trouble and is sent back to a regular high school by his agency to repair his public image.



    B2ST will be coming back with a new album in July! We cant wait to see what they come up with next!
