Happy Birthday Ha Ji Won!

Yesterday was the 33rd birthday of Korean actress Ha Ji Won, who most recently starred in the much-loved drama, The King 2 Hearts. We love that Ha Ji Won brings something different to the female lead role; she always plays characters who are strong (physically and emotionally!), down to earth, and fight for what's right. Some might say that her most famous K-Drama characters are connected to each other. So let's wish Ha Ji Won a wonderful birthday by celebrating her awesome acting career!

Damo (다모) is an award-winning historical drama that has captured fans from all over the world since its debut in 2003. Ha Ji Won plays a Joseon Dynasty undercover police officer from the lower class, investigating the money-laundering schemes of the high court. She falls in love with the leader of a rebel group, but they cannot be together because of a shocking revelation about their past life. Damo is available in the US & Canada.

In Secret Garden (시크릿가든) Ha Ji Won continues to use her sword skills, but this time as movie stunt woman, Gil Ra Im. A wealthy CEO played by Hyun Bin takes interest in her tough image, and just as they start to get close, a mystical spell causes them to switch bodies! How can love survive when roles are switched and social differences keep these two apart? Secret Garden is available worldwide except in certain countries.

The King 2 Hearts (더킹) features Ha Ji Won in a commanding role, leading the North Korean military special operations unit in a realistic fantasy world.

'Crazy' is a song about a guy wondering why people don't see things the way he does. You might think it's one of those melancholic rock songs, but you'll realize that lead vocal, Mr. Pierre Bouvier is singing about realistic issues in the modern world.

Edison Chen

Edison Chen is a singer/actor from Hong Kong. 'I Can Fly' is a song written by Jay Chou for Edison's comeback in 2010 after a long break. There have been mixed reviews on pretty boy, Edison's take on this song. What do you think? Did he do Jay proud?

Is Lee Min Ho your perfect match?

Have you ever watched Lee Min Ho in Korean dramas and dreamed that you would one day be soulmates? Now you can come one step closer to finding out what destiny has in store. Below, see if your star sign and blood type are compatible with the hottest bachelor in Korea. And take our special romantic compatibility quiz on Facebook to see if you're a true match!



Yesterday, we celebrated Lee Min Ho's 25th birthday. Being born on June 22nd makes him a Cancer, according to the astrological horoscope. Does your astrological horoscope make you his perfect match?

Pisces, Taurus, Scorpio -- Congratulations, you're a match made in heaven! You and Lee Min Ho share similar values and qualities, and will have an instant connection.

Gemini, Cancer, Aquarius -- You and Min Ho are very alike, so you'd probably have a nice and stable relationship. But having the same qualities means you might share the same faults too.

Sagittarius, Leo -- You're a couple like water and oil. You might start dating because of curiosity, but it would be a miracle if you and Lee Min Ho fell in love.

Capricorn, Virgo  -- This pair can succeed if you take the lead in the relationship. Min Ho would love to learn from your experience so teach him well!

Aries, Libra -- Get ready for a wild ride! This relationship would be a lot of fun in the beginning, but there will probably be lots of arguments down the line.

In our blog post about Lee Min Ho's birthday, we revealed that his blood type is A! Check to see if your blood types makes you a good match:

Type A & Type AB -- You're a perfect match! You and Lee Min Ho are both calm, rational, and able to be introverted or outgoing depending on the situation.

Type B -- This wouldn't be a great match, because your personalities are very different -- you're very independent and focused on your own goals, which could rub Lee Min Ho the wrong the way!

Type O -- You're creative, competitive and popular, and often the center of attention; this might not mix well with Min Ho's quiet but self-conscious personality. You'd be better off as friends.


Lee Min Ho is ready to get hitched! Are you the one?

Happy Birthday Lee Min Ho & Jung Yong Hwa!

Today we celebrate the birthday of two Korean superstars: Lee Min Ho (25) and Jung Yong Hwa (23). Find out what else these handsome guys share besides a common birthday!

Blood Type

In Korea, blood type is seen as an important factor in personality, romantic compatibility, and health. Our boys are both Blood Type A, which means they have a kind heart and strive to be perfect.


Type A Jung Yong Hwa has always been handsome and reserved

Fans remember the year 2009 as a high point in the Korean wave. Girls' Generation released their record-breaking hit "Gee," that year for example. Yong Hwa broke through as the sweet Kang Shin Woo in You're Beautiful, and Lee Min Ho portrayed the cold-hearted Gu Jun Pyo in Boys Over Flowers, both in 2009!

They followed up the success of their first dramas with appearances in new shows in 2011: Lee Min Ho impressed audiences with his action performance in City Hunter, and Jung Yong Hwa made music fans swoon in Heartstrings.

Jung Yong Hwa (23) was most recently in Heartstrings

Let's wish these hard-working hotties an amazing birthday!

We Love Lee Tae Ri & Queen Inhyun

This week, we are excited to announce two Korean Dramas we know you've been waiting for! Queen Inhyun's Man and I Love Lee Tae Ri blend real-life romance and comedy with a touch of fantasy -- and now you can enjoy both.

Queen Inhyun's Man (인현왕후의남자) is a fusion time-travel drama with a riveting plot and lovable romance between a Joseon dynasty scholar and modern-day actress. The scholar Kim Boong-do is played by Ji Hyun Woo, who we loved in Birth of a Rich Man. His dutiful loyalty and growing feelings towards actress Choi Hee Jin, played by Yoo In Na from The Greatest Love and Birdie Buddy, is enough to make any K-Drama fan pay attention. If you loved the historical influence and funny time-traveling mistakes of Yi Gak in Rooftop Prince, you'll probably get hooked on Queen Inhyun's Man, also known as The Queen & I. This drama is available to viewers in the Americas.

I Love Lee Tae Ri (아이러브이태리) is another drama that pulls its story out of the supernatural world. Follow 14-year-old Geum Eun Dong, played by Super Junior's Kim Ki Bum, as he gets accidentally trapped in the body of 25-year-old Hwang Min Soo. Find out if he can make his favorite noona Yang Jin Woo, played by Park Ye Jin from My Princess, fall in love with him. This drama  is available to viewers in the Americas.

I Love Lee Tae Ri

It looks like we're in for a summer full of fusion fantasy dramas! Which one is your favorite so far?

New to Viki? Try subtitling or segmenting music videos!

You may not be aware of it, but behind many of the videos you've been enjoying are dozens of community members who've contributed to the subtitles, segments, channel decorations, and management of the show Channel itself. It may seem daunting at first, but anyone can get involved -- it's fun and often addicting. So don't just watch, participate! :)

If you're new and don't know where to start, you might consider subtitling or segmenting something short, like a music video. (Segmenting, by the way, means to "cut" a video's dialogue so that it can be subtitled later). Here's a quick-start guide:

1) Check out the segmenting and subtitling overviews in the Help Center.

2) Send a private message (PM) to the Channel Manager for your video to say "hi" and let them know that you'd like to contribute and how. You can start subbing at any time, but if you'd like to segment, you'll need to be added as an official segmenter by the Channel Manager or the Viki community managers, Mariko or Stephanie. You can PM them directly or send a request to the Help Center.

3) Don't forget to share your awesome work with friends because you will have contributed to helping break down language barriers to cool music, TV shows or movies - how great is that?!

TIP: one important way to contribute is to translate the original language (example: from English to English), which is great for the hearing impaired or for anyone who likes to read dialogue in the original language. 


Simple Plan's "Welcome to My Life" has been subtitled into 16 languages, including Thai!

Music IS the universal language... but it could still use a little help from its friends!

Music videos are a great place to start if you're new to contributing. They're short, fun and especially awesome for perfecting your segmenting skills because of the rhythm of the music. For more segmenting tips, check out the video tutorials by a Viki contributor and segmenting master honnas, which you can find in our Help Center.

There are thousands music videos to choose from. Check out K-pop stars such as IUT-araSecretYoon Mirae (Tasha), or hot new Hip-Hop group, MIB. For those of you who love music from the Americas, try subbing or segmenting videos from Green DayMadonnaMichelle BranchMichael Bublé or Simple Plan. One of Simple Plan's videos, Welcome to my Life, has already been subtitled in 16 languages! You can also find music videos from Taiwanese Kenji Wu, Filipino General Luna and many more.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact us through the Viki Help Center at any time.

Happy subbing and segmenting!

Take us with you on your Kindle Fire!

A few months ago, we launched our iPhone/iPad and Android apps. Since then, many of you have asked us about a Kindle Fire app, and today we're excited to tell you that it's now available from the Amazon App Store!

Take the TV shows and movies you love, subtitled in your language, with you wherever you go. Discover great shows to watch and look forward to, through "Featured" and "Coming Soon," and share your favorites with your friends through Facebook, Twitter, SMS and email! Download the app now!



If you have any suggestions, questions or concerns, please always feel free to contact us through the Viki Help Center.

New Look for YouTube Videos

Anyone who's created a Fan Channel on Viki knows about a great feature we've offered for awhile, which allows people to link to videos from select websites and use our tool to create subtitles on those videos.

YouTube videos in particular are really popular, so we wanted to give you a head's up about changes in the appearance of how YouTube videos and the subtitles now display on Viki.

The following changes have been made at the request of YouTube:


  • No text will be placed on top of their videos

  • Timed comments will be turned off

  • Only one subtitle language will display at a time. You can still edit your language setting to choose a different subtitle language.

We're currently working with YouTube to find the best solution for both them and our community. So if you have any feedback, please let us know! Non-YouTube videos will not change.



Thank you!

Stephanie & the Viki Team

A Strong Start for Gentleman's Dignity, Starring Jang Dong Gun

Last week, we gave you a preview of some of the hottest Korean Dramas premiering this summer, with a special nod to the comebacks of much-loved actors like Gong Yoo and So Ji Sub. But what would a comeback season be without welcoming the long-awaited return of Jang Dong Gun in "A Gentleman's Dignity"? With incredible stage presence, enviable style, and an almost 20-year-long acting career, Jang Dong Gun is the perfect choice to lead the new generation of F4 (or shall we say, F40?)


The Gentleman's Club out for a stroll

In A Gentleman's Dignity ( 신사의품격), four urban professional men who have been friends since college navigate the twists and turns of romance, business, and life in Seoul. Jang Dong Gun plays Kim Do Jin, a successful architect who is sought after by every woman he meets; but the one lady who catches his eye never seems to notice him (she literally ignores his presence!).  She is played by the beautiful and accomplished actress Kim Ha Neul, who starred in Road No. 1 with So Ji Sub (check him out in "Ghost" airing now!). And the love triangle starts forming even in the first episode, when she shows her feelings for Do Jin's business partner -- uh oh.

A Gentleman's Dignity is what you get when you add a few years to the lady-killer foursome of Boys Over Flowers, throw in a strong charismatic woman like Lee Shin Young of Still Marry Me, and mix with the talented writer/director pair that brought us Secret Garden and City Hall. And don't forget that the star-studded cast also includes Kim Min Jong (Athena: Goddess of War), Kim Soo Ro, and Lee Jong Hyuk (Chuno). These four have great chemistry on screen, and every scene has been funnier than the last. A Gentleman's Dignity has had a very strong start, and is looking to be one of the best dramas this season. Skillfully subbed by The Gentleman's Club team on Viki, this romantic comedy airs on Saturday and Sunday and is available to viewers in the Americas.
