Hey Monarchs! I would like to thank you all for visiting, posting, liking, and lurking on this thread. "The King" has been quite a ride for all of us. Kudos to us for sticking with the drama until the

This is the episode I've been waiting for in regards to SJ.  I don't even like him all that much - so I'm not sure why I'm so invested.    But he's been dealt the worst hand in this entire s

TMOPB is a gem! 

 

Viki is also my first stop but Wetv has aired some great stuff as well. 

 

The problem with viki is the subs. They are slow and ignore some shows. I left viki back in 2016 and never returned due to slow subs but don't know how things are going over there now

Fun fact - Chinese was my first language but I accidentally forgot almost all of it until I joined the workforce and had to learn quickly again.  I used to watch Cdramas on YouTube witb the volunteer made subtitles and they were SO BAD that I hauled a$$ to fully learn Mandarin again so I wouldn’t have to rely on subtitles.  Which resulted in this really odd thing that my mom had to help me out of when I started speaking like the Chinese consorts in 1700 because of Scarlet Heart/Yanxi/Ruyi/Empresses in the Palace. 
 

I actually have picked up some Korean over the last few years, and the Netflix subs have started really annoying me, especially with TKEM.  Sometimes you can hear them say long sentences but the translation is super short and underwhelming.

sleep at 2am while screaming about theories, wake up at 5 to scream on soompi that I can sleep, wake up at 6:30 to scream with the live bloggers, shower and fall cus it’s so early and hurt a limb, start watching at 7:30 while drying off in the bathroom, then walk into oncoming traffic after the episode while running to Work because I’m too busy on my phone fighting with people 

 

I miss it

 

I was mostly at work when it came on and I would sneak out and take longer breaks to watch TKEM without my boss finding out

A teeny bit.  I did about 4 months of free app based learning before I went to SK on vacation lol.  Managed to order in restaurants.  Then to keep going I needed to buy Rosetta Stone for like $400 and that’s not happening. 
 

The Netflix translations were BAD.  It was even worse for CLOY because of the variances between NK and SK.  And the thing with TKEM - they go back and edit the subs too afterwards.  They made minor changes to the scene between LG and Jeong Tae Ra. Nothing that would have affected the scene, but it shows that they’re not as direct and careful as they should be.

 

FYI they changed where the trophy was.  Instead of it being in the boss’s car, KGE’s assistant says he’ll bring it tomorrow.

 

The most offensive one was when they changed “Protect her, she’s the future Queen of the Kingdom of Corea” to “Protect her, she’s the future Queen”.  Does it change anything?  Not really, but I can literally hear LMH say his country’s name in Korean. So why simplify it???

As you probably know viki relies on volunteers. The quality of the subs depend on the translator team and thus vary for each drama.

So far the dramas I've watched were all fully subbed so I can't complain about the speed.

I don't use dramacool but i use Kissasian tho i will be moving out of there because they don't sub wuxia on time 

 

I dislike dramacool due to the design of the website and i don't so watch TKEM or any other drama there. I watch TKEM on netflix but if I need a drama that is not not TKEM dramacool is the last option on my list

I have experienced watching live airing drama on viki and the subs were really late to and sometimes they never arrived

Gravity is so good, ugh :shivers:

 

Looping - Gravity, Orbit, I Fall In Love, and Dream rn.

 

Has anyone listened to the “The King”, BGM?  It’s very classic and majestic and parts of it played when LMH was introduced in the first ep, and then it goes DRAMATIC!!!! with a full freaking choir howling in the back

I imagine that’s LG’s internal monologue when he’s cat walking everywhere.  He walks to JTE while a choir goes AAAAAHHHH in the background, drums blaring.

I haven't had the chance to listen the BGM but I have been hearing good things and complaints about them not adding all BGM in the released album. Do you happen to know where I can find these BGM online? I mean these in the released album

Apple Music!  They released each episode separately and last week released the full OST. 
 

The orchestral My Love is there and it’s STUNNING.

It’s been a tough weekend without new episodes of TKEM... I think I will start rewatching, thanks to Netflix. By the way I have a question. Remember the man who gave those pictures to PM Koo in one of the early episodes, who was he supposed to be? I couldn’t figure whether he sided with LR or LG.

Officially he acts as the advisor to the PM’s office, but his interest is primarily with KU owned by her ex-husband. He collects intel for political extortion purposes, including the treasonous evidence he handed over to LG : private conversations with the King the PM recorded within the confines of the palace. Note that whenever the PM goes through security checks, she always emphasised her underwire bra, so there you go.

I actually disliked the first scene so much - it seemed so unnecessary and misogynistic for the show to even go there about her underwores and bras and very un-Kdrama for it.

 

Then when it turns out PM was hiding her bugs in her boobs and using the culture’s discomfort with talking about her boobs to sneak them in my brain exploded.

 

This show is so much smarter than it gets credit for.
