So, I did a recap of Three Meals a Day in Deukryang and saw a very interesting phenomenon happening in my stats. The Power of Eric, HA.
There’s something that has always intrigued me and it’s the number of views for the final “recap” of Master of Revenge/ God of Noodles. That one is like the fastest post I’ve ever done and the sloppiest and yet it has the highest views at 899 views to date, HA. Is it because people use that post to head over to Alexandra’s Dramaswithdrinx website? Because it’s hilarious.
Readership for Gochang Ep 1 was and is actually a slow burn and it’s high views were accumulated over a long time. Just like the show, it seems like people are in no hurry to read the recap or catch up on the episodes because that’s true for all Gochang episodes.
Obviously, 1 Night 2 Days dominates the chart since this website was built on that show and started because of that show in the first place but there is no lie that Park BoGum brings all the people to the yard. Lee Yeong seja-jeoha! Man, I love that show, Moonlight Drawn by Clouds. It’s so pretty. Though the story last week kind of disappointed me. Writer, is this your revenge for me commenting in Dramabeans last week that the writing was the weakest link in that show?! Oh come on, so petty!
What cannot be discounted is the draw of the Eric (and some parts, Sir Grumpypants, I must add) because:
Considering the time I took the screencap, the stats for this episode of 1 Night 2 Days is NOT weak but, ha, Eric, SeoJinnie and KyunSang are crazy popular, that’s all I can say.
Anyways, in other news, sorry that the SW0017 posts aren’t coming for those who actually read them. I haven’t exactly been very free this week, which is why the Moonlight IMPcaps aren’t coming out either. But it’s so pretty! I feel like I haven’t been doing my homework.
Now that I’ve gone Eng-sub-less on all the recaps for the variety shows, I’m learning more but I’m actually also taking more time to do them (I’m not Korean, for those who still don’t know). I took a whole Saturday just to write and create the recap for Deukryang-do (but I admit that I didn’t do it all in one sitting… and there was a lot of procrastination that went on). 1 Hour and 30 Minutes. It’s like Na PD is planning to kill me. Yoo PD over at 1 Night 2 Days almost killed me with his King Sejong special too because it’s so educational that they used so many words that I’ve NEVER heard of before. *Drowing like a cat in milk* I think I took 6 hours for this episode’s recap.
Ah, I’m not affiliated to this website or anything, but it’s so good that I have to recommend it to anyone who’s trying to study Korean: How to Study Korean. It’s thanks to that website that I’ve been able to bring you 1 Night 2 Days and Three Meals a Day recaps even before the English subs hit the net/broadcast, even though I’d only properly started learning Korean 11 months ago (and I just learnt it all for free online, no classes, because I’m cheap like that, heh).
For a Random post, this has been long enough. Just wanted to reach out to you guys because if there’s any perk about running your own website/blog, it’s that you can write and publish anything you want , hee.
(And I must admit that every comment you guys write to me thrills me. I could have kept the recaps for myself but sharing brings more happiness and I love it when people respond.)
Variety Recaps – Recapping Laughter.
Also, anyone with a real website and traffic must be laughing at my stats, har har.
