2014 Women in Film awards Yeom Jung-ah, Chun Woo-hee

On December 4, the 2014 Women in Film Festival held a small awards ceremony to acknowledge achievement in film by women. Go Ara (You’re All Surrounded) was the MC for the event, and Kim Min-hee (Temperature of Love) was among the guests. The top honor went to Yeom Jung-ah for her performance in Cart, a film about employees at a large corporate mart who face a mass layoff. Chun Woo-hee is a name we’ll be seeing a lot this awards season — she was nominated for Lead Actress at the Grand Bell Awards just a few weeks ago, and picked up an Actress Award here for her role in Han Gong-ju. Among the other films recognized were Dohee, Miss Granny, and A Hard Day. I hope every year this list just grows longer and longer.

WINNERS LIST

  • Women in Film Award: Yeom Jung-ah (Cart)
  • Actress Award: Chun Woo-hee (Han Gong-ju)
  • Writer/Director: Jung Ju-ri (Dohee)
  • Producer: Im Ji-young (Miss Granny)
  • Documentary/Short: Jo Se-young (It’s Dance Time)
  • Technical Award: Oh Sora (Sound Designer for A Hard Day)
  • Marketing Award: Miss Granny
  • Lifetime Achievement Award: Kim Ji-mi

A boring year for Korean movies.

Honestly, every Korean movie pales in comparison to the masterpiece that is Miracle in Cell no. 7.

I wonder how Royal Tailors /Sanguiwon will go, I hope it's a big success like Miracle was.

Lmao i can tell your PSH fan just by your comment. Not that she had anything to do with success of Miracle in Cell No7. considering she was on screen for less than 5 minutes.

There is bunch of amazing movies in Korean industry, the fact they don`t do well at the box office doesn`t take away from their greatness. You should check out Hope, Hang Gong Ju and Pieta. Amazing movies.

Cell No. 7 was a sweet, intimate little film that was heart-warming. It was great to see all those familiar faces, usually playing terrifying gangsters reduced to putty by that one little girl, who was btw played by a wonderful pint-sized actress.

Don't know about the other films, many of which I haven't seen, but I LOVE Miss Granny. It always makes me laugh, even when I return to it time and again.

Haven't yet seen Roaring Currents. Really really looking forward to that one. Have to go find a DVD this holiday shopping season. I'm sure it'll take the cake in K movie watching experience.

Happy holidays!

Hi Beanies!! I need your help!!!!
I’m back with some more questions for my research paper, and I would greatly appreciate as many replies as possible!!! Your previous replies a few months back were VERY helpful .
Quick recap: I’m a Library and Information Sciences grad student (undergrad major in Japanese, emphasis on Socio-linguistics and Translation). For my LIB 200: Information Communities class, my semester-long major homework item is a 20+ page research paper on an information community – and of course I choose drama/fansubbing fans! I’m mostly focusing on Kdramas, but twdrama, jdramas and even anime are fair game. I’m at the end of it, and I need some more data – the more replies, the better!
My focus is the role that recaps, reviews, live-reviews, and headnotes (like the explanations in at the top of the screen in anime) play in fans’ viewing experience.

So, for my questions:
Please complete as much as you can, but feel free to leave blank anything that doesn’t apply to you.
1. How many years have you watched dramas/anime?

2. Do you speak/understand the target language? Please rate your level from 0-5 (0 = understand nothing, 5= near native level)

3. Have you ever watched commercially subbed dramas/anime? (this includes crunchyroll and dramafever, as well as the KBS subs and official DVDs, etc)

4. In your personal opinion, do most commercial subs provide an accurate, complete viewing experience?

5. In your personal opinion, do most fansubs provide an accurate, complete viewing experience? (Please do not consider machine-based translations, such as darksmurf)

6. If a drama/anime has headnotes, or notes at the beginning/end of episode, do you pause to read them?
—If yes, how do they contribute to your experience?

7. Do you read live recaps?
8. —If yes, how do they contribute to your experience?

9. Do you read reviews/recaps?
—If yes, how do they contribute to your experience?
10. When watching a drama, what do you find the most difficult to understand?
A. Culturally-specific situations
B. Humor
C. Pop cultural references
D. Historical references
E. Other (please give an example)

11. When something gets “lost in translation” in a drama and you don’t understand what’s going on, what do you do? (examples: google it, ignore it, ask a friend, search a discussion board, etc)

To everyone that completed this…THANK YOU!!!!!!!! <3 <3

As there seems to be a little confusion in the other thread, here's a short explanation of live-recaps as I understand them:

Live recaps are often posted in soompi for more popular shows. There will be a spoiler tag, then something like this will be posted:

“so-and so went to (a place) and talked to (other person). Second lead did (something nefarious). Lead kissed other lead *OMG FEELS*”

lol. It’s a live play-by-play for those who don’t understand korean and are either live streaming…or like spoilers :D

I replied by email, but I'll add here too that Darksmurf subs are not machine-based. Machine-translated subs are available at DSS, but the subs that DSS releases are the work of humans, fans who work hard at translating and editing. That's why they're seldom available as rapidly as some other sites.

Yes, and that's why I called them "machine-based" not "machine translated" (and I appreciate DS, I've subbed there myself :) ), and I'm not saying they are bad, BUT - they are often translated through a machine and one or more languages.

Example: DS's korean subs are at least partially based on a machine translation of Chinese subs that were translated from the original - so even if the Chinese to English final translation is perfect, if the Korean to Chinese translation was incorrect, then the English subs are affected. Also, I have no way of knowing if the Chinese subs are fansubs or commercial subs...which is relevant to the survey :).

So, for the sake of this survey, I wanted to leave them out.

My main experience of DSS has been with Yoona's Street, for which Drama they're the only providers of English subs, and for that Drama at least, the Chinese subs have been manually checked against the Korean audio by Korean speakers. The comments made by the subbers there shows that they check every single line of the Chinese translation to make sure it's a valid translation of the Korean. Also, relevant to your other point, it seems certain that the Chinese subs for that Drama are fansubs too, sinxwo commercial subbers picked it up outside China.

Yeah, they are awesome for the dramas no one else subs. And the quality has really gotten so much better! (I've been following them since BEFORE Darksmurf went community based, back when he was translating 2-3 dramas alone and that was it. Those were great, but the first few dramas after the translation opened to everyone were.... ^^;; ). But...depending on the drama, the quality can vary wildly based on whether the drama interests any native-level korean speakers, or even any native level english speakers! :D

1. 2.5 years- didn't know they existed before then.
2. about a 3 (mostly because I take Korean language and culture classes, I didn't learn my Korean from the dramas themselves)
3. Yes
4. Sort of - as I learn more of the language I feel that more and more is lost in translation. As far as getting the gist of what is being said, they do a great job, however exactness is almost impossible because, in my opinion, Korean is a very different language than English so it is almost impossible to translate it in ways that can give the story more meaning/ the correct meaning/ the implied meaning.
5. I feel like fansubs are a little more accurate than commercial subs because they usually take extra care because they do it for the love of the show rather than to make money. Also I often find that they explain untranslatable words, sayings and cultural things unlike commercial subs.
6. Sometimes. I like them when they explain cultural things or untranslatable words because they help me get more out of the drama that way, however I don't always take the time to read them and I don't need to do it always either.
7. No
8.--
9. Yes. I like to read them because they can help me understand things that I didn't fully get and also because I love to hear other peoples opinions on the shows.
10. C - I don't pay a ton of attention to kpop and such. My favorite genre of Korean shows are sageuks (historical dramas) so I know a lot about Korean history. I like a good modern drama once in a while, but never a kpop related one.
11. I usually just ignore it, unless its really bugging me and then I look it up using google, the Korean people I know or books and such.

1. 20+ years if kdrama watching.
2. I understand better than I can speak, Rate 3
3. Yes
4. They're ok. Most of it is accurate, but they tend to annoyingly "Americanize" things. Like translating a person's name instead of what they're actually being called. Ex. You'll hear "Oppa" but the subtitle will have the guy's name.
5. Yes, most of the time. They tend to be more faithful to the translation and the culture. You don't get the whole "Oppa" problem.
6. Yes. They give good information about any content that couldn't be explained in the sub directly.
7. Yes.
8. They give insight on what others think is going on.
9. Yes. They clear up any confusion I had.
10. D
11. I google it, look for other subs or search discussion boards.

9. yes
—they often catch stuff that i miss when watching the episode, or have cultural info that makes it make more sense
10. When watching a drama, what do you find the most difficult to understand?
D. Historical references - I know Korean history almost exclusively through what I've seen in dramas, and a little bit from personal research/blogs about Korea, so there is a lot I don't know
E. Other - when they use Korean idioms/figurative language that don't make sense in English (and there isn't a subber note explaining it)
11. I almost always read recaps of every drama I watch, and usually these kinds of things are explained in the recap, so I look for an explanation there. Otherwise, I just let it go usually

6. not really

8. they provide context and give me idea of what to expect so i can guess what the character is saying

9. absolutely, help me understand the characters better. especially culture things, like giving tail of the eel to precious one - i got that from pinnochio and why calling oppa is so important to guys, and it has so many meanings. Thanks dramabean
10. When watching a drama, what do you find the most difficult to understand?
A. Culturally-specific situations
B. Humor - toilet humour, others are okay for me.
C. Pop cultural references - I don't really follow kpop nowadays so it's a problem, preHOT and post DBSK references goes over my head
D. Historical references - when they refer to historical figure like Jang Ok Jung

11. dramabeans, if they recap it. otherwise google

1.5 years

2.3 or 4

3.yes

4.They do provide a good translation but I've seen often times that they just summarize the meaning of the dialogue instead of accurately translating it. It's become noticeable to me since just a while ago because now that I understand the languages I can catch those discrepancies.. Sometimes they are very few and not a bad thing but then sometimes they make for a jarring viewing experience

5.&6. Some fan subs give explanations or tie ins along with a few comments especially the japanese and taiwanese ones making for a great watch and they are generally quite accurate .

7.No.

9.I follow recaps if I'm ambiguous about a show to decide if I want to watch it and for shows I like, to talk over them with others who watch them.

10. The phonetic jokes about similar sounding words, references to older shows and puns about sayings or colloquiums.

11. All of the above and sometimes even that doesn't provide the answer. So I keep a list of such things and revisit them again periodically to find if something about them has been added.

Hope I helped and good luck :-)

I'm seeing a new banner with a girl in yellow can anyone tell me who she is.
there are two pictures of her one in a yellow jacket smiling and the other in a yellow dress with a big red floral ring on her finger making a shush gesture over red lips. Dramabeans logo and tag line are in red with a kiss mark in red too.

Hope I described it well enough that anyone else seeing this same banner might identify her.

P.S. I don't why I'm hung up on this either :-)

4. I think fansubs do a better job just because they tend to provide headnotes to explain contexts, puns, and references that would otherwise be lost in translation, but they are generally watchable unless you're a watching a drama like Reply 1997 where those references are crucial to the understanding of the drama.
5. Yes.
6. Yes, I feel like I get a better understanding of the drama.
7. No.
8. --
9. Yes, recaps fill in any holes I might have had in my understanding of the drama. For example, to get any references I missed, for explanations, or just to relive the episodes. Other times, I read the recaps if I want to know whether to watch a drama/episode or not. It's also interesting read recaps because it shows me another perspective, that's why I also like reading the comments on the recaps.

9. yes
—recaps serve two purposes. i can read a recap to geta taste of a drama i'm not watching (sometimes this is to see if it piques my interest or just to keep up because there aren't enough hours in a day). i find that recaps also act as a forum for discussion. viewers can, in a way, re-live an episode and discuss plot, characters, themes, etc with other viewers in greater detail than they can in, say, a youtube comment or viki timed comment.
10. C. I don't listen to a lot of kpop, nor do I know much about actors/actresses' personal lives. i've missed many a joke or reference to a popular song/comedian/celebrity because of it
11. I'm lazy and a bad listener so I watch with english subs, but sometimes I know a translation isn't 100%. if i don't understand the context and i'm curious enough i look up korean scripts because my reading is better than my listening. if i still don't get it i'll look at recaps or discussions to see if its mentioned.
