[K-DRAMA] License Request Wishlist (Previously Broadcast Dramas)


#1

This past year really brought the burn of competition with Viki getting/not getting licenses - the old days with a cream-of-the-crop selection seem to be withering. What do you think? Instead of dwelling on it, I thought it might be productive to initiate a ~License Request Frenzy~ with your help. If Viki can’t get a certain ratio of the new on-air dramas due to competition, perhaps we could get more filling here at Viki with some older previously broadcast dramas? Is this a realistic wish? :smiley_cat:

As you likely realize, with the latest Viki redesign, the drama request process got streamlined to one location, rather than on the individual channels - Alas, the location is somewhat buried in the Help Center, accessed by scrolling to the bottom after all the imagery loads, through one’s profile or bookmarking the link as I did. Here is the link to make license requests:

If you feel inclined, share your wishlist of previously broadcast dramas you’d like to see licensed (or re-licensed) on Viki. Let’s all share suggestions and proactively make license requests and let Viki know what we’d like to get!

Here’s my shortlist for Viki License Requests made. (I live in the USA, some may be Viki licensed for other countries) These are some of the dramas from the DeFunct streaming site that I really want to watch again and would love to see on Viki. :heart_eyes_cat:

  • Circle: Two Worlds Connected
  • My Ahjussi/Mister (Mr. Lonely)
  • Stranger (Secret Forest)
  • Tomorrow with You
  • Are You Human, Too?
  • Jealousy Incarnate (Don’t Dare to Dream)
  • The Best Hit
  • Strongest Deliveryman
  • My Secret Terius (Terius Behind Me)
  • Scarlet Heart Ryeo
  • Cinderella & Four Knights
  • GoHo’s Starry Night
  • Dear My Friends
  • New Tales of Gisaeng
  • Bride of the Water God
  • Temperature/Degree of Love

As a side note, I want to thank everyone who posts info, updates and scoops here on Discussions - it’s truly a great resource and I hope very much it doesn’t get lost in the shuffle of Viki web/app redesigns. Warm regards, sheishun

An awesome idea! :slight_smile: You have listed most of the dramas that I would love to see on viki or again on viki. Also I thought temperature of love is still on viki and Jealousy incarnate was re licensed on Viki???

Here’s my wish list:

Top Star Yoo Baek
Because This is My First Life
100 Days Prince
Warm and Cozy
K2
Dear My Room


#5

Suddenly I forgot everything I wanted to watch here… Oh well. :grinning:
But I love your list. @sheishun_548
It has some of the things I wanted to see so I went like: “Oh yeah, I wanted that.” but then forgot my own list.
I’ll be back when I am not sleepy. :sweat_smile:


#6

It depends on the country. Temperature of Love and Jealousy Incarnate are not available in the US. Some of the title you listed are available here.


#7

I suspected that might be the case.


#8

I’ve seen these, yet I would like Viki to have them…so here I go filling out license requests :slight_smile: (I’m in the USA)

  1. Are You Human, Too?
  2. Scarlet Heart Ryeo
  3. Winter Sonata
  4. Stairway to Heaven
  5. Cinderella and the Four Knights
  6. Ping Pong Ball
  7. How to Meet the Perfect Neighbor
    I haven’t seen these:
  8. Chuno (aka Slave Hunter) (Kdrama)
  9. Kang Koo’s Story (kdrama)
  10. Dear Lena (kmovie)
  11. Champ (kmovie)
  12. A Stray Goat (kmovie)

100 Days of Husband has been licensed, it’s on “coming soon” now!


#10

Also saw My Mister (Mr. Lonely) and Bride of the Water God under “coming soon”.


#11

Yes, I was pleasantly surprised with My Mister - I’m in the team, yoohoo!

Bride of the Water God has always been here. Maybe not for your region? And that drama sucked big time, I don’t recommend wasting your time with it.


#12

Wow! Excellent news about My Mister and 100 Days Husband getting licensed. I wonder if there are more hidden gems coming soon?! :heart_eyes_cat: Let’s continue to share scoops of newly re/licensed completed dramas, okay? Thanks tons!

@lutra So many greats on your list, I also really hope to see Deserving of the Name here. I was in the midst of watching Queen In Hyun’s Man when the Viki license expired some months back :crying_cat_face: I hope it will return soon!

@esther3_940 Your list is great, too! Top Star Yoo Baek is also on my wishlist, I nearly cried when we didn’t get that on-air. Also, with your suggestion on the other thread last week, I have been watching Dear My Room without subtitles, enjoying immensely, thanks for the tip! I hope we can get it here at Viki!

@tweet998 Yes, please do share your list when you can, I’m curious to see your favorites, too!

@helenama73_911 I am so happy to see Kmovie suggestions, thank you! I would also love to view the old classics here on Viki, Winter Sonata and the whole set, so nostalgic.

@irmar and @et_865 Thank you so much for the news of licenses, it’s so great to share info! I actually haven’t watched all of Bride of Water God, got cut off when that defunct site closed. So, it’s a stinker overall? Thanks for the tip!

To everyone, I will happily go to the License Request form and ask for your wishlist Dramas, thanks for sharing! Best wishes to you all, sheishun

Just wanted to share that Cinderella and Four Knights has appeared on Viki Coming Soon (hopefully for ALL regions, I am in the USA). I’m looking forward to watching this again with you on Viki, (@tweet998) and will continue to hope for even more additions of previously broadcast dramas to Viki! :smile_cat::smile_cat::smile_cat::smile_cat::smile_cat::smile_cat::smile_cat:
