I think cdramas should just ditch Viki and Dramafever altogether and post on their own Youtube channel. I just introduced my friend to Princess Agents and we watched on her big screen tv, she was shocked at how great the quality was. Dramas like Princess Agents and Fighter of the Destiny got subbed so fast, although it would have been better if they were professionally subbed. At the moment only stars with large fanbases like Luhan or Zhao Liying will have their dramas subbed at such speeds. Too bad for the other good dramas out there. Viki and Dramafever have been horrible especially recently not only with licensing popular dramas, but promoting them. I'm happy to see so many people checking out Princess Agents even though it's not on a recognizable drama platform.

 

What I love most of cdramas is there is no shortage of strong female characters and I do enjoy the ones that are not all about love. Historicals are a must since they have so much history to get material from and Wuxia and Xianxia dramas are the kind of stuff you won't see anywhere else. I love the promos they do for their dramas from the BTS videos to interactions between actors on social media. I would love to see a Viki or Dramafever exclusively for cdramas in the future.

my dream to have a iqiyi or youku with real time(or day after) eng sub.. 


yeah, but KissAsian steals subs from DF/Viki/Youtube. So if Viki/DF don't sub them, then it is hard to find subs elsewhere.

most of the drama on there is not subbed from viki or df, hence why i go there. they just find where ever it is subbed and upload it.

pretty much how I feel.

 

I think they should ditch Viki/DF and get professional subbers to do their own subs. I rather watch them on youtube. I can stream them to my TV and get them HD without commercials.

A lot of the ones on kissasian were on Viki when they had fanchannels, but the channels were deleted. Like Boss & Me. 

 

Some are fan-subbed like The Mystic Nine (not on DF or Viki), but was subbed by fans somewhere else. But the majority are from deleted fan channels on Viki.

 

I hope that dream comes true but on youtube lol

Y'know I really hope that China makes more modern dramas too.

 

Recently there are ones like Ode to Joy and In the Name of the People.

 

But those two are still very much "vanilla" and are clearly more "soap opera" TV.

 

I want China directors to take on more of a daring step to tackle more on realistic environments like 蜗居 (Dwelling Narrowness)https://en.wikipedia...ling_Narrowness, 别了,温哥华 (Goodbye to Vancouver) http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Vancouver, and/or 中国式离婚 (Chinese Style Divorce) http://wiki.d-addict...e_Style_Divorce

Yea but lately I've been seeing a lot get subbed. I think glory of tang dynasty also didn't get subbed yet. A lot of the ones w/ high expectant don't get subbed which is weird to me. I expect drama with popular young actor to get subbed quick tho like zly, yang yang, william chan, dilraba(have much upcoming drama.. and she getting popular), etc. like those around age 30 n below who is very popular right now. 

 

Speaking pf William Chan though, is his new drama with Liu Shi Shi getting subbed?

Yep. I agree, I have been loving Cdramas lately and what I see draws me in are the really strong female lead centered dramas. Like they are heroic and strong and capable. Nirvana in Fire was the only one that wasn't female centered but that drama did not lack strong female characters. OMG Prince Jings mom was such a cool smart character.

Princes Agents has been great. I love that actress and first watched her in Legend of Lu Zhen another kick ass character that used her brain and kindness to make it to the top. I also loved 3 Miles of Cherry Blossoms Love Forever whatever it's translated 50 names are. lOl

I still like Kdramas but Kdramas sometimes only offer the fantasy of finding love. While Cdramas are like yes here is a fantasy about love but look at your heroine also kick ass along the way!

Cdramas have been gaining a stronger traction internationally & i'm stoked to see. There's countless gems when you dig deep and I tend to find c actors emote better than your average k actor with better writing & plots all around.

I don't need subs but if offical channels start providing free hq subs on widespread platforms like youtube, it'll help expand the popularity of cdramas.

Agree with you on that one. But I don't like it when they have to die at the end or there's no happy ending. Dramafever was so good at their Ten Peach Blossom promo, what happened to them?

I just want The Advisors Alliance to be subbed more faster. I die to wait for Eng sub. Currently on ep 6. I love political/historical drama so much. I love watching smart people scheming against each other. Sima Yi is stealing my heart now.

 

PA is just too addicted, even ZLY is a bit weak in action but it's still so enjoyable. Can't imagine when Ming Lan air next year. ZLY + NIF team. This is over my expectation. Ni Ni also plays strong female strategist in Rise of The Phoenix next year.  I'm so excited to see strong female characters.

 

After PA ends, I'll switch to modern drama (while waiting Eng sub for TAA). I think I will check Zheng Zhuang drama.

I will never ever understand why producers never get international distributors for Cdramas with professional translators. They have the money to do it and it will increase their soft power. It's so shortsighted of them to not look at the bigger picture.
