I’m always curious to know how do Viki members watch their dramas. Do you Wait until the drama is uploaded with all the episodes and subtitled or do you Not Wait and watch it every week it airs?
I personally can not take waiting every week for new episodes on a drama, especially if it’s a highly claimed ‘drama of the year’ type of drama, nope, I would be in agony every week waiting for those glorious episode to come. I wait until all the episodes are uploaded and subtitled, I just have to force myself not to click on any of the discussion regarding that drama, or sneak peek at clips on YT.
P.S. Let say for this topic we include every website that we use to watch dramas, not just Viki.
I’m too busy with life after… high school. I used to get away with watching drams until wee hrs doing hw and going to school with a 1+ hr commute…
Now… I cannot do it without risking academic instability. High school showing up was enough to do well enough now there’s a lot more work and my body can’t take it anymore hu hu hu.
I watch here on viki after airing on a weekend ep 1 to last ep in one sitting. There are other sites but they get deleted and that makes me sad.I like viki because most things are here permanently.
I do/used to watch W every week every episode but I have been MIA last 2 (one week). I think like moonandstars a mix of both. HOWEVER for chinese shows finding subtitles is so difficult if I find any I watch all of them as soon as appropriately possible because they get deleted @.@ and I get sad.
I do a mixture: watch as it is airing and finding shows that are completely subbed. I need my subs first so will even wait until they are subbed. What I find frustrating is a show will start out being subbed quickly and then stopped. I honestly do not mind waiting on subs especially after an episode has been released. But its a killer when I’m watching a great show and getting closer to the end and it stops completely.
As for why I do a mixture, this way allows me to getting watching in on my scheduling. There are days I binge watch, yet new release only take up a couple hours of watching daily to relax at the end of a long day.
That’s how I may be next year. After taking some time off school I’m going to get back at hitting the books and all I feel like my Viki time may shorten as well. Especially since I help subtitle dramas here and there. Kind of a downer once I think about it.
