[Drama 2019-2020] Woman of 9.9 Billion, 99억의 여자

Korean culture in itself is very us centered. When they talk about "western" they usually mean us. I wouldn't even be surprised if they often talk about dollars in the korean audio. Maybe someone can comment on that.

 

 

Other than that I seriously don't undestand how people still get hung up on that. I mean i get that it can bother you if the translation excludes korean cultural context. But there are people who act like they are genuinely confused and can't keep track on the money because of the different currencies. Sorry but i don't buy it. It's not that complicated ;)

I admit I was initially confused with the translation and not a mere act as you so lightly put it. The title of drama being Woman of 9.9 billion and the subs was showing million instead. Thanks to @lebeaucouple @Hannahmiriam and @triplem for clarifying the matter. I happened to watch the drama on KBS world which is the KBS official channel for international viewers and shared the translation here. I don't know about Korean being US centered and I  don't think I'm/my country are British centered although we were under British rule before the late 50's and we follow the British way of driving on the right side of the road etc. Anyway I'll excuse your cheeky remarks.

I remember when I start watching kdramas, when a character bought something from a store, the translations used dollars and I really believe that Korean can use dollars not only won when they buy something. :D

But I understand why the translaters are making related with the cultural context of the people needed translations.

I personally don`t bother if there are 99 millions or 9.9 billions. Won, dollors, euro, whatever. My mind can`t understand how much is it. I read "lots of money" anyway. :D

I watched the Golden Globe Awards last night and I saw Parasite team celebrating their win for the foreign file category.  Jo Yeo Jung attended...I wonder how she can handle doing drama and travel to the US for the award show.

 

Back to the drama....although the story is not getting anywhere right now...I still enjoy watching it weekly.

I happened to watch this drama on KBS World today and they use 10billion/10million in the translation. And it made s lot of sense for people like me lol.  I don't know why they need to convert it to USD since this is a Korean drama.

i myself got confused with this! :( exactly i agree why convert it to USD whereas this is a Kdrama? lol

Also i just finished last nite the latest epis & don't throw stones at me but:

Spoiler

i think the beginning of this drama made me really enthused in watching that when i started 2 days ago  i already got to the latest epis, but it seems that it's making me dizzy now when they keep deducting so many $$$$ in the this so-called 9.99 billion then the 3 milln supposedly go to trust fund but then that wicked ha jee (name?) was unbeknownst to SY was a wicked friend? to me it's getting to be too many hands on this money! i may be wrong but i'm really losing that enthusiasm I had compared to first few episodes which I found addictive than the last few episodes!

it seems SY is a determined woman & won't stop at nothing! :)

@sksen i didn't watch GGA last nite & woah they won an award? i agree this drama doesn't seem to be gg anywhere!

But yet money is save in the red bag 

 I say they should change the color of the bags. I propose yellow suitcases .

Maybe two bags are too much.  Is there any money left? Oh... I see that they saved some money.

@Ameera Ali thanks for the recaps....oh no, her brother died? What? I liked him :tears:

 

her husband's taser came to save her potential lover ;):ph34r:

 

The moment her bro got killed. TW broke the news to her......

The preview looks good....

Hee Ju comes face to face with Madam Jang. More staring contest and arm grabbing between the leads. Psycho hubs starts spending the cash....but it won't be long before he gets caught ...please someone bury him please

It was hard to chose one emoticon for your comment. :w00t:

 

I am sad that her brother died. So Leon appeared in this episode? It was about time.

Compared to his wife 

 But she has the energy enough to cut the tire with a knife. I did not try but I have a feeling is not that easy. Best team to get the money. :D

Ep.21-22 (11): This was a good episode (ridiculous, unbelievable and funny too, in parts). So much happens in a single episode! It seems like 'Leon' character is sketched out like Keyser Soze from 'The Usual Suspects', nobody has seen his face, those who have, live in fear or don't live for long.  

 

Now JSY has seen Leon (without knowing his identity, and saved his life too) and in next episode KTW will meet Leon under his false identity avataar. But Leon has technically declared himself dead so are these two hooking up for ANY kind of revenge ever? I hope the story will now move to KTW trying to bring Leon to justice (maybe with Hee Joo and Ms.Jang's help?) as opposed to JSY's obsession with gangster money or how to get money from her husband or her raised eyebrow on too-shiny face!

 

Spoiler

RIP Baek Sung, you were a good looking plot point (and Hee Joo's right-hand man served a purpose too; KDH's actions were just funny.) More brownie points for KTW for trying to save BSJ's life unlike what JSY did with his brother.

 

Psycho hubby gets and enjoys the money till he is thrown in a literal grave?! Only in this drama! What's next? Maybe something like Newman-Redford 'The Sting' scheme (fake casino, real money, caught by police) to fool and catch Leon? The writers better tie this up neatly because it is CRAAAZZZYYYY right now (my hair is grey and standing like KDH's!)
