Live Spring Trivia Event

Thank you to everyone who submitted a drama-specific question for our next trivia event! We received over 60 questions and it was challenging to narrow them down to just 10!

Our third live trivia event happens Thursday, March 21st @ 10:00 AM PDT, right before Spring-a-thon!

Check out our Discussions post for the Zoom invite link and more details.

Contributor Spotlight

We’d like to shine our spotlight on a Gold QC who has been a positive presence in Discussions with her insightful and supportive comments. Please meet kristelrose!

A bit about Kristel:

Kristel is a Swedish Moderator and Subtitler who made her first contribution in July of 2023 on the drama Sh**ting Stars. She lives in Sweden, and describes herself as “a curious person with a passion for learning anything, from culture and languages to general knowledge. If I’m not spending my free time subtitling, I’m either watching dramas, gaming, or reading books.”

Read on to learn more about Kristel, her hottest drama recommendations, and which Asian drama star she would swap places with if she could!



  1. If you could sum up your Viki Contributor journey in 5 words, what would they be?
    Fun, Inspiring, Enriching, Instructive, Exciting

  2. What are some hot titles on Viki that you would recommend?
    Wedding Impossible, Amidst a Snowstorm of Love, and Live Your Own Life

  3. You mentioned Trivia and Seg-Subtember were your first community events! Can you describe what it was like to participate?
    Participating in my first community event was very exciting as I felt a sense of unity among contributors from various language communities. The trivia was extra special because it was an opportunity to interact with contributors in real-time, and even recognize many of them, while testing your drama knowledge. It was also fun to get introduced to the lovely community team members that hosted the event :heart:

  4. You’ve achieved Gold QC status. Congratulations!! What advice would you give someone who is just starting out as a Contributor?
    Don’t be afraid to take your time as you learn. The process itself can easily be overwhelming as a new contributor so it’s important to be patient. As a general advice I think it’s good to occasionally remind yourself of the reason why you wanted to start volunteering as a contributor, to not lose sight of some important values.

  5. If you could swap places with any Asian drama actor or actress who would it be, and why?
    I would swap places with Park Shin Hye. She has talent and experience in a range of different genres, she’s been in many popular dramas and has worked alongside several talented actors and actresses that I would love to meet! If the swap is a full body swap, it is also a big plus that she is very beautiful :wink:

  6. You’re from Sweden! If someone was visiting you in Sweden where would you take them / what would you insist that they see or do?
    I’m from the very south of Sweden and one thing I always recommend visitors to experience down here is to take a one-day trip to the island Ven on a beautiful and sunny day. The best way to explore the island is by renting a bike (or even a tandem bike!) as the island is mostly car-free. Having a picnic or enjoying a fika in the beautiful landscapes is delightful.

Here’s to Spring! :cherry_blossom:

Don’t know where to put this but episode 1 of Wedding Impossible has like a 2 second delay audio issue. Sound doesn’t match characters talking.
