First of all, whoever decided that Great Queen SD was just an "older drama" and needed this unloving treatment is entirely clueless. That is a gateway drama for K Drama like...JEWEL IN THE PALACE. That's not "just some old drama to play with". Yes, it's from 2009. But it's also a great drama and watched heavily still today! I myself went and watched it again after seeing part of Hwarang - it sent me back to the great acting and better portrayal OF the Hwarang there. Translated with LOVE to folks around the world AND all the proper work that goes into a historical and costume drama!
Second of all, seriously, CONDOR? Anybody who thinks THAT drama is "just some old drama" sitting around here? People FOUGHT to get that one here - and it FINALLY was converted from a fan channel late last year - 2016 - and FINALLY translated. A difficult translation to put it MILDLY into English!
What's more, this drama has a WORLDWIDE following as the best version of THAT JIN YONG. There are many versions, including a 2017 one that some like - because the CGI has improved. But...GENERALLY...THIS is the version people want to see. It's on the top 20 EVER list on many fan sites. MAUL THIS DRAMA and you have not done your homework to put it MILDLY.
I have already heard from my Polish Moderator complete with samples of the completely-changed meanings of even some relatively SIMPLE sentences from the drama and now...this is a disaster.
Condor's following numbers have MORE THAN DOUBLED over the past year since it was translated.
Oh..and the other one you guys hit, A Swordsman in the Wilderness? We may have the ONLY English there in the world. Yeah. And it needs CAREFUL TRANSLATION TOO.
Please stop trying to "help" my dramas. You're setting us back actually...and the only way you can make it worse is by trying to do my Chinese to English Teams' work for them too. You may OWN them...but we LOVE them.
GeNie of the Lamp....must now engage in Nine Yin True Classic Manual recovery methods to get past the anger here....and resist the temptation to unleash Dragon-Subduing Palm Strikes at this ...."machine"....
