Like you, I love Asian dramas whether they are from SK, China, Taiwanese, Japanese etc... But when someone complains about not liking dramas from whatever Asian (or USA)country, I feel they are entitled to say that because they really don't like them, and is their right to say it, if they want to. I know that like me, you also don't like every Chinese, Japanese or Taiwanese drama here either.
Everyone by complaining are mainly venting their frustrations bc of the things going on here right now. Very limited dramas they like and enjoy to see but paying $$$ for it, and way too many here of the ones they don't want to see but have to pay$$$ anyway. Worst yet, paying more money with no guarantee that they'll get to watch the dramas they really like bc they are all of a sudden.removed from their country.
If we think about it, we are all in limbo right now bc they are making these changes with no warning whatsoever. Even you are in limbo right now, waiting for kocowa and viki to level up to do the upgrade. But still satisfied with your standard pass bc you like the many varieties of dramas that are presently been offered here to you. You are satisfied for 2 reasons # one, you can afford to pay the extra money if you have to, and # two, you love the dramas offered in the standard pass whether they are from China, Taiwan etc. You/I have options they don't have.
My heart breaks for those that can't afford this prices and are left with nothing. No hope bc they control things in a way that leaves you no choice: ''take it or leave it.'' Watch this for this price or pay double if you want to watch the ones you like. This is the way I see things are going on right now and if I think that's so unfair!
I have to mention this one, the worst injustice my eyes. I read somewhere in discussion that a girl worked as a volunteer ( for free as we all know) doing the subtitles in a drama that many viewers got to pleasantly enjoy. But while she was working hard in this drama, she was not able to see it bc it was restricted where she lives. She was good enough to subbed the drama but not good enough to see it. There must be something that they could work out so that the volunteer subbers get to also see the drama even if is restricted in their country. If they are good enough to sub it they are good enough to watch it, too!
This is what I call injustice of the worst kind bc they know how hard it is to do this subtitles. Can you even imagine how much harder it must be that you don't even get to see the drama? That girl and any volunteer that does that deserves a medal. I wouldn't do it, A while ago a CM told me she would send me the subtitles in English so I could translate them to Spanish and I said NO if I can't watch the drama bc is restricted for me, I won't do the subtitles either.
