Please don't send me these:

"Hi there, 
I’m interested in helping as a subtitler 
for    , and I’d like to translate into   .

Thank you!"

I get tons of them and most of the time they are for a specific episode of a drama or show (the commitment is a full series), or a drama that's already translated into the language they're asking about, and all too often the language isn't even filled in. A personal note specifically naming the show you're interested in and the language you want to subtitle into is far better received. Also, if you are a subtitler wanting to sub a language other than English, check the team information on the main cover page to find out the moderator of your language and write that person. If there is no moderator, then you can write to the channel manager about being a solo subber in your target language.


2017 was a good summer for concerts and idols:

GDragon MOTTE in Seattle sendoff, 7-11-17 JiYong turned and came back to me after I called out to him, picked up and looked at the t-shirt I made him and totally got the message. I didn't really realize until later what big deal that was:

Taeyang White Night Tour San Jose sendoff, 9-10-17 Youngbae was so sweet, kind and friendly. He happily accepted the BigBang OGAF button I gave him and helped me with my selfie because I couldn't get my phone set right. Plus, he was the only one there with the same color hair as mine (it was soft and crunchy at the same time):
12-18-17, Happy note! After four years of dating, Youngbae finally proposed to Min Hyo Rin
and she accepted. Their wedding was on February 3rd. I am super happy for them!
Full MADE album finally released on December 12th, 2016, with three new songs.
It was a long wait, but it was worth it!
 Because... T.O.P 
T.O.P went into MS on 2-9-17, JiYong on 2-27-18, Youngbae on 3-12-18 and Daesung on 3-13-18. Because they knew we'd miss them a lot, they recorded a song released on March 13th for us to enjoy while we wait for their return. Seungri, better hurry and go in or you'll be left behind when your hyungs are discharged...
Stay safe and hurry home, boys!
