Viki

What are you currently watching?


#4167

yes, I know I hope JoongKi has either no or very mild symptoms. As much as we all wish otherwise, the ‘human malware’ is still causing significant problems isn’t it

From what I’ve read, there is apparently going to be no change in the broadcast schedule for ‘again my life’ , so hopefully we should still have episodes on Viki as normal

#4168

Yup! :unamused:

So, who takes his place?


#4169

@leerla73
It all depends on how far ahead they were in filming at the time of positive test. If we lucky no one will take the place of JoongKi. The isolation period probably won’t be anything more than 14 days at this stage. Although I’m not entirely sure South Korea’s isolation rules are.

In the UK. For example things are rather relaxed now. Perhaps a little too relaxed :face_with_raised_eyebrow:

Sorry to be “that” person, but its “Joon Gi”, not “Joong Ki”(thats Song Joong Ki). I got so confused, wondering if Youngest Son was already airing, and why I had never heard about SJK getting sick! :sweat_smile:


#4171

Ha! Ha! Haaa! :smile: Are you saying :face_with_hand_over_mouth:

Oh! You mean the g is not included, and it’s Gi, not Ki! Oh! :hushed:

:joy::joy::joy:
@command_234, I let you down buddy, but things are righted now, and like a trooper, you didn’t get our stars misaligned. :joy: No hard feelings @vivi_1485, I’ve gone for years having the wrong stars married to the wrong people, someone later finally opened my eyes, so thanks a bunch!


#4172

I got confused about the same thing–give our SJK the monoclonals and let me come over on the next plane with soup! :rofl: Not that all the other actors don’t deserve soup and good wishes, but in a world where a lot of the actors can be a little interchangeable I think SJK’s charisma and personality that he brings to roles is totally unique. Even when he’s a less major character, like in Sungkyunkwan Scandal, he’s still a star.


#4173

Well, I’m Lee Joon Gi-biased, so I’ll be the one flying over there with soup and good wishes for him :upside_down_face::sweat_smile: He’s my favorite - I love the way he brings out emotions and charisma in his roles. I always feel like I’m right there on an emotional rollercoaster with him when I watch his shows. And I’ll never ever get tired of watching him kick ass :smiling_face_with_three_hearts::joy:


#4174

I actually haven’t seen any dramas where he had a prominent role! Looking over the list, all I’ve seen is a few episodes of Hotel del Luna (this one just didn’t grab me) and She Was Pretty. Maybe I should check his dramas out!


#4175

Please consider this a PSA. :wink::smile::smiling_face_with_three_hearts:
I was pleasantly surprised to see Viki recently released Lovers in Paris. This is a 2004 K-drama which was co-written by Kim Eun-sook and Shin Woo-chul. Kim Eun-sook was also the screenwriter for, ‘On Air (2008), Secret Garden (2010), A Gentleman’s Dignity (2012), The Heirs (2013), Descendants of the Sun (2016), Guardian: The Lonely and Great God (2016–2017), Mr. Sunshine (2018) and The King: Eternal Monarch (2020)’ (source: Wickipedia). Perhaps you can imagine my delight to see that Viki is carrying this drama as I consider Kim to be one of my favorite K-drama screenwriters. In watching the first few episodes, I can see how her writing has matured through the years but I still consider this a gem.

:open_mouth:

That’s cool :blush:


#4177

I’m watching

I hope they don’t ruin the ending because it’s really good. I don’t want to see it here:


#4178

Sure!
He usually does one romance and one hardcore action in alternate years… my favorites are Lawless Lawyer and Flower of Evil.


#4179

@leerla73
I had to think about how I managed to not get the stars misaligned and it was because I saw the article about Joon Gi contracting the ‘human malware’ a day or so earlier and was able to point you straight to the article, even though you misaligned the stars. So to be fair, I’m just as bad as you are because I didn’t even notice you got the stars misaligned I just went on autopilot. So in a way @vivi_1485 corrected us both :joy:

For the record, I’m not very good at remembering names, even in English :neutral_face: so I’m very likely to do more silly stuff like this :roll_eyes:


#4180

:joy::joy::joy: @command_234,


#4181

I have just started watching this one, kinda reminds me of rookie cops, y’know the training they went through and all. still going to watch it, Allen Ren is in it. I hope his character gets better though. no not gonna tell you, just watch it and see what I mean.

//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

I also have started watching this one. so far its good

again don’t like waiting but here we are again


#4182

another one, and this struck home for me

https://mydramalist.com/695963-tomorrow episode 9

oh my goodness, the episode hit home, here’s MY story, I have a chi, who has that throat collapse, heart problems, and yes close for his time to go maybe another year, I got meds to give him to help him with his heavy breathing, the coughing and so on. what struck home, about his little fella dying, I don’t know if I will be able to handle that or not. guess I will have to wait & see but oh this one was so good and got me to think as well, oh dear I hope I didn’t give stuff away, just so upset at the moment


#4183

I personally am really enjoying “From Now On, Showtime!” but does anyone know why this is rated only 6.8 on Mydramalist?


#4184

Oh my goodness im going crazy over that!!! The drama actually had an 8.8 rating on Sunday, when the 2nd ep had just released. Suddenly, the rating just plunged to 7.7 and now IDK WHY it’s gone down to 6.8!! Most of us speculate that either MDL has a bug or people are hate-rating/ grudge-rating. I’m enjoying it thoroughly, and there really is absolutely no justified reason to give it a 6.8 rating. The actors are amazing, the ratings in SK are increasing, the Viki rating is 9.7, and the plot has been pretty intriguing. The whole thing is so funny, and I’m already shipping the two characters.


#4185

and I really enjoy that drama, yeah wonder why the low ratings?


#4186

I’m glad it’s good! It’s on my list (glad to see some new romance kdramas on Viki that aren’t bite-sized).

I started Sh**ting Stars and am loving it even though the concept (romance between star and someone who works at the management company) has been done before. So far it feels very fresh nonetheless. And I’ve enjoyed both leads in other projects - Oh Nam Ju is back! And FL (Lee Sung Kyung) is just stunning.

Taking a break from The Lady in Butcher’s House because the characters’ actions are just too nonsensical. I still think the drama has potential and mostly I enjoy watching it, but I’m at episode 10 (>1/4 through) and just need to step away for a bit. I keep wanting to yell at them to stop doing stupid things. I normally love the period c-drama mystery-solving teams (Under the Power, Imperial Coroner, Maiden Holmes) and was looking forward to something similar.
