I used to work on a drama called Defendant and a few days ago I decided to casually check the subtitles. In episode 12 at the end there used to be the song ‘I love you baby’ by Frankie Vailli. Back then I had subbed it, but this time the song had disappeared and instead someone was listening to a Korean song.
I went into the sub editor to remove the lyrics, because they wouldn’t make sense anymore if there is no audio for them in the episode. But when I was in the subtitle editor, the audio of Vailli’s song was there and not the Korean song. You can see it here, starting from 56:10: Defendant ep 12
I had to go into the sub editor again and I got this message: Before subtitles can be added, this video needs segments. Learn how or start segmenting.
This is strange because the series is on viki since 2018 and has been translated into 15 languages.
Anyway, why do songs disappear/get replaced with other songs in the episode, but they stay as they are in the subtitle editor? Is this a problem with my device or do other people notice it too?. Isn’t this very confusing for viewers and translators? I just like to know what is happening and why it’s like this.
