    Guest Blog Post from Coco & Vivi of KDrama Fighting!

    As summer heats up and K-drama fans make plans to visit Korea (we wish!), we thought it would be helpful for us to share some Korean phrases that you will need to know for when you run into those rich chaebols and heiresses during your visit. We all know, from watching K-dramas on Viki, that when you meet your love interest, there is a progression of emotions that you will feel. Here are five essential Korean phrases for each phase of your potential relationship.

    Phase 1: Hey, do you want to die?

    According to K-dramas, most romantic relationships dont start off well. Usually, the male and female have a bad initial run-in with each other that results in mutual hatred. Sometimes this takes the form of violence and/or threats, as in Boys Over Flowers and Protect the Boss. In case this is how your relationship begins with your love interest, we recommend that you learn the Korean phrase for “Hey, do you want to die?

    Phase 2: Stop appearing before my face!

    Oftentimes, the hatred between two characters evolves into a milder feeling of mutual annoyance. This usually occurs after the main couple has had several awkward encounters, such as in Lie to Me. In case this happens to you, we also recommend that you learn the Korean phase for “Stop appearing before my face! Dont worry, though; most likely, you will enter into some sort of agreement to fake a relationship that is mutually beneficial, which will then gradually ramp up your romantic interest in the other person.

    Phase 3: Now do you see me as a man/woman?

    Once you and your new Korean love interest have been tolerating each other for awhile, its time to take the next step by willfully invading the other persons space and asking awkward questions. See A Gentleman’s Dignity as your guide to this move. Even though the obvious answer here is, “Am I blind? What kind of person could NOT see you as a man? it is actually in your best interest to slide away coyly and feign disinterest — for now.

    Phase 4: I dont have the confidence.

    All great Korean romances have absurd obstacles thrown in the way. Without them, it just wouldnt be true love! At this point, the most advanced lovers think, “I know! The best way to deal with this problem is to totally cut off communication and give up on our relationship!  If you have seen anything with Park Shin Hye in it (You’re Beautiful or Flower Boy Next Door, for example), you know exactly what to do. Work those puppy eyes!

    Phase 5: I love you.

    If phase 4 makes you sad, dont fret! Its only a temporary ploy until you get to the final phase: complete and total bliss with the one you love! Just pray that you get a good kiss instead of one of those frozen ones. Youve earned it!

    Ever since the official launch of music videos from Universal Music Group, we’d thought of paying tribute to artists Viki fans care about. Selection of each month’s featured artist is based on popularity of the music videos for the preceding month. This time, country-pop superstar Taylor Swift emerged as July’s Most Popular International Artist.

    For those of you who don’t know, Taylor Swift is one of the younger singer/songwriters who won the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 2008 with her second album, Fearless. Her songs are known to reflect her personal experiences as a teenager and a young adult.

    Swift’s strongest musical influences include country artists Shania Twain, Faith Hill and the Dixie Chicks. Not limiting her playlist to the country genre, she’s also listened to Fall Out Boy, Michelle Branch and Britney Spears.

    Referred to as the Best People Person, Swift feels it is her responsibility to positively influence her young fans. Thus, watching Titanic beats partying, as the clip below suggests.

    To date, Swift has won more than 40 awards, including Grammy Awards, American Music Awards and Billboard Music Awards. Watch some of her best-known hits as she progresses from country-pop to mainstream pop/rock.

    *Music videos are available in most of Southeast Asia and Korea, and to Qualified Contributors worldwide.

    Who else is hungry? Weve all experienced the sudden hunger pangs after seeing a bowl of noodles or mounds of sizzling beef in a drama. In Asian dramas, food can set the stage for cute moments or disastrous scenes. Here are some of our favorite drama food moments that had us searching for sustenance of our own.

    Jokbal, or boiled pigs feet, was Ji Ans must-have pregnancy craving in I Do, I Do (2012). In  Episode 6, she craves it so badly, she calls Tae Kang to go pick some up and bring it to her. As she eats it, he sits across from her on the couch being tortured as he nervously awaits her news.

    Ji Ans jokbal craving in I Do, I Do

    Baby-Faced Beauty

    So Young also had a love of this meat in Baby-Faced Beauty (2011). When Jang Na Ra declares her love of jokbal, telling Daniel Choi that her dream as a child was to marry a jokbal restaurant owner, his reaction is the cutest thing ever. Watch Episode 5 from 15:45 to see the first time they eat at a jokbal restaurant together.

    A delicious meal in Baby-Faced Beauty

    In Episode 5 of Arang and the Magistrate (2012),  Arang faces her fear ... of peaches! Starting at 25:20, Eun Oh offers her one, but Arang jumps back in fear. But as she begins to eat the peach, Arang realizes that the fruit is sweet and delicious. Her reaction is priceless (as are the timed comments!).

    Eun Oh forces Arang to try a peach in Arang and the Magistrate 

    Queen In Hyun’s Man 

    Queen In Hyuns Man” (2012) holds its own with adorable food scenes. Episode 15 (11:20) includes Hee Jin and Boong Do sharing a plate of pasta in the cutest way possible. Hee Jin and Boong Do sit there with feet interlocked, sharing a plate, re-creating Walt Disneys famous Lady and the Tramp noodle kiss. Boong Do says, “I should eat this every day.”

    The spaghetti kiss in ‘Queen In Hyuns Man

    Boys Over Flowers

    In one of the best moments of Boys Over Flowers (2009), Joon Pyo (Lee Min Ho) watches in fascinated curiosity while Jan Di’s family prepares a massive batch of kimchi. He stays on the sidelines at first, but seeing how much fun they’re having together, Joon Pyo soon joins in. Watch Episode 9 from 4:50 to witness a perfect combination of family bonding, romance between Joon Pyo and Jan Di, and mounds of freshly made kimchi.

    In another scene, Joon Pyo eats uncooked ramen, because he cannot turn on the stove! In Episode 19,  when Joon Pyo cant get his rickety stove to work, he resorts to eating his ramen dry. But even dry noodles look delicious in the hands of Lee Min Ho!

    Smiling Pasta

    This Taiwanese drama, which originally aired in 2006, is not without its fair share of food scenes to make your mouth water. Episode 1 introduces us to some delicious scenes right off the bat, with a close-up of the pasta-making process starting at 12:50. In this opening episode, He Qun, a famous singer, and Xiao Shi, an ordinary girl, both get their hearts broken. They run into each other on the street with an accidental kiss, and the drama unfolds from that disastrous point, intertwined with delicious pasta scenes that will make you hungry for more.

    The Tragedy of W

    This drama series from 2012 includes one of the most awkward formal family dinner scenes ever, starting at 7:15 of Episode 2. This is just after Satsuki, a cleaning lady at a nightclub who also dabbles in prostitution, assumes Mako’s life as the heiress of a business conglomerate and begins to devise a plan to take over the family fortune. This is because the two women look exactly alike, so they decide to switch lives. However, this switch only makes this dinner scene that much more uncomfortable, as various differences between their two lives begin to show through.

    And here are some of our favorite Rain memories:

Currently in beta, One Liners is a fun and addicting new feature that makes it easy for anyone to contribute subtitles when they can, one line at a time. For those of you who haven't tried subtitling before - this is a great way to give it a try!

    What does it do?
    Right now, the feature allows logged-in users to:

    1. Rate - with a thumbs up or a thumbs down - a subtitle that's been already translated from English into your preferred language.
    2. If you give the subtitle a thumbs up, you'll be presented another line.
    3. If you give the subtitle a thumbs down, you can enter an alternate suggestion. You also have the option to rate another line. 
    In the next few weeks, we'll add the ability to enter a translation directly from English into another language. Channel Managers and Moderators will also be given the option to opt out certain languages from One Liners.

    How can I try it?
    • Find Viki One Liners at the bottom right of every page
    • Select your preferred "to" language (for now, English is the only "from" language option)
    • Rate the translation, then keep going!

    Where will this new information show up?
    The ratings and alternate suggestions gathered here willnot be published on the site, at least for a few weeks. This will give us time to test the feature.

    We'd love your thoughts and feedback on Viki One Liners, so please write into the Help Center.

    Hi, everyone! This is Rebecca. Im on Vikis content team, and one of my specialties is music. Ever heard a song but never quite knew how to classify it? To help you figure out the different genres of music we offer on Viki, we’ve put together a quick introduction. Today, we bring you Pop.

    Derived from rock and roll from the 1950s, pop music is widely defined as mainstream music, especially for youths. It's constantly evolving, so to break it down a little further, here are some of the most common subgenres of pop music that we offer on Viki.

    Note: Some of the below videos are only available to Viki users in Southeast Asia. However, QCs (Qualified Contributors) get to enjoy free access to all of these videos. Find out how you can become a QC!

    Bubblegum Pop: Classified as uptempo, catchy music, bubblegum pop usually has lyrics about romance and caters to teenagers. Expect one-hit wonders in this category, too.

    In addition to Miley Cyrus, other bubblegum pop artists include Justin Bieber, Carly Rae Jepsen and Orange Caramel

    Dance Pop: The versatile type of pop, dance pop was created to play at dance clubs and yet be a contemporary radio hit. These tunes are common in mashups.

    T-ara and Enrique Iglesiasace the dance pop genre, alongside Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Teen Top and Nine Muses

    Pop Punk: This fusion genre combines mainstream pop tunes with punk rock attitude. Think loud electric guitars and high tempo beats.

    Artists who fit the bill for pop punk include Fall Out Boy, Green Day and Blink-182

    Pop Rock: This subgenre is a softer version of a guitar rock song, albeit a less authentic one.  

    Some well known pop rockers are LEDApple, Elton John, Demi Lovato, Jonas Brothers and Maroon 5

    In addition to all the pop subgenres already mentioned above, here are some additional pop favorites from around the world.

    Latin Pop From J.Lo

    K-Pop From Ga In and Hyung Woo

    C-Pop From Evonne Hsu and Wilber Pan

    Viki is teaming up with KPOP UNITED, an organization dedicated to giving back to the K-Pop community, to send one deserving fan on KPOP UNITED's DREAM TOUR to Seoul, a weeklong pop cultural and language exchange program for K-Pop fans that kicks off today.

    The fan, Katherine (Kat) Muro, was diagnosed with a tumor in her lungs earlier this year. We're happy to report that her cancer is not terminal, but the treatment and surgery that she has endured has left her physically and mentally exhausted. K-Pop is one of her main inspirations and motivations to stay strong.

    During the tour, Kat and other attendees will enjoy K-Pop concerts, visit SM Entertainment and JYP, attend MBC Music Show Champion! and MNET M! Countdown, and tour the Gangnam neighborhood made popular by Psy's "Gangnam Style."

    Kat considers herself one of EXO-K Kai's biggest fans and notes that he is able to brighten her spirits after a long day of treatment and testing, inspiring her to stay strong and push forward (see Kai in EXO-K's music video for 'Wolf' below).

    There's no news yet on whether Kat will have the opportunity to meet EXO, but we're happy to be fulfilling one of her dreams to visit Korea. We're certain it will be a trip she will remember for a lifetime!

    In the heat of the summer, why would you waste your time covering up something so delicious? Here are some actors that we give permission to stop wearing shirts ... permanently.

    Song Seung Heon

    This sexy K-drama star of When a Man Loves and East of Eden should stop wearing shirts altogether. Please?

    Songs brooding and pensive shower scene in My Princessis one of our favorites.

    Lee Byung Hun

    He starred in IRIS, a K-drama about two friends brought into a top-secret organization. But its no secret that Lee Byung Hun has fantastic abs. Well let the pictures do the talking. 

    Lee recently mentioned that he has a nude scene in his upcoming Hollywood sequel Red 2  yet another reason to see this film!

    Jay Park

    It would be difficult not to include the Korean American R&B and hip-hop singer Jay Park in this mix. We would definitely be this guyGirlfriend. They should really put a warning label on his music video for Welcome,” because it is guaranteed to drive you crazy. 

    OK, if he has to wear shirts, at least wear them like this:

    Adam Levine 

    The frontman for the American pop rock band Maroon 5 has become iconic for his tattoos and perfect abs. He should definitely not be covering them up with pesky fabric. 

    In this controversial photo for Cosmopolitan UK, Levine posed with the strategically placed hands of his then-girlfriend Anne Vyalitsyna. 

    Lee Min Ho

    The hot star of Boys Over Flowers may have one-too-many shower scenes in his dramas. But thats just fine with us.

    Heres one in Boys Over Flowers, Episode 2 (unfortunately theres more broodiness than abs, but dont worry, they just get better from here):

    Heres one in Personal Taste, Episode 3

    And finally, our favorite, from City Hunter, Episode 2

    Nicholas Teo

    The Malaysian pop singer and actor has got it going on. This star of Smiling Pasta is sure to put a smile on your face and make you hungry for more. On top of the adorable attitude that is obvious in his music videos like Happiness Is Chased, who knew Teo also had abs like this? 

    Victor Noriega

    The sexy Mexican actor stars in Rebel Angel,” a suspenseful telenovela about a couple torn apart by circumstances and family secrets. We could stare at that Latin muscle all day, and we definitely give Noriega permission to stop wearing shirts. 

    Let us know if there are any other stars you want to add to this list!

    All subtitles on Viki are written by an amazing community of passionate volunteers who deserve our recognition and thanks. Today we're launching a leaderboard to do just that -- to recognize volunteers who have contributed the most subtitles and segments in any given week.

    The leaderboard is located in the right-hand column of the Community page:

    Through the pull-down menus, you'll be able to sort by:
    • All subtitlers
    • All segmenters
    • Subtitlers by language
    The Community Leaderboard will update every Sunday evening PT, and show the top 25 volunteers of the previous week. You can learn more about the leaderboard in this Help Center FAQ.

    Don't forget to leave positive comments on channel and video pages to recognize the volunteer community's contributions!

    If you have any questions about the Community Leaderboard, please contact the Help Center.
