Fansubs and drama addictions
Clearly I’m a kdrama addict, and if you’re here, you probably are too. So you might want to hop over and check out Popseoul’s new fansubbing-related post to see how badly your addiction measures up.
For me, a large part of my kdrama
addiction interest relates to fansubbing, which is a curious thing. Despite the time I spend on it, even I can’t quite explain the motivation. All I can say is, there are a lot of dedicated and hardworking people who somehow feel the same compelling desire to participate, despite the lack of returns for their efforts. I think most of us would continue to do so regardless of being thanked or praised — after all, it’s not something one does for the glory. Most of us are pseudonymous anyway, so aside from a simple online nickname, the work doesn’t bring us fame or anything extraordinary. But it’s nice to be recognized once in a while. Thanks Popseoul!
