Korean Series of the Month - Poll Ended 1/03/2010

Post by mizune » Dec 7th, '09, 06:23

Wow, all the previous nominees are now being seeded, so I had to drum up a new list of nominees....
As always, I plead ignorance about most kdramas, so please let me know how if the selections aren't varied enough or if you would like to nominate a series. :fear:

DON'T FORGET TO CHECK OUT THE Korean SOTM: Volunteer Seeders Wanted! Thread AND VOLUNTEER!

Many thanks go out to those seeding the last KSOTM winner ( Hong Gil Dong ). Thank you for your support! :salut:

VOTE for the next KSOTM above
(This poll will run for ~3 weeks. Enjoy!)
This coming month's nominees are:
Eighteen vs Twenty-Nine- torrents
How to Meet a Perfect Neighbor - torrents
La Dolce Vita / Bittersweet Life - torrents
Rules of Love - torrents



Rules for nominating KSOTMs:
* Please nominate dramas found in the Korean SOTM: Volunteer Seeders Wanted! Thread
* Nominate only Korean dramas with English subtitles
* Korean dramas licensed by YA Entertainment are not eligible for nomination (technically, they're not allowed on this site period :fear:)
* Only nominate a series if 1 or more episodes have zero seeds

======================================================================

What is the Korean Series of the Month (SSOTM)? More Info Here
Due to the substantial number of torrents on this site, we implemented a "Series of the Week/Month," where we could dedicate bandwidth and seeding efforts to a specific series. This helps in several ways:
1. People will know which series was voted and will be seeded, rather than just waiting and hoping for them to be seeded at some later date.
2. For those seeders who have DVD burners and have already burnt their collections to DVD/CD, the series of the week gives them an opportunity to dust off those archives and help seed their favorites.
3. Constantly re-circulates older torrents back into view, and focuses bandwidth and demand toward specific torrents, rather than having people request series across the board.
Remember, D-Addicts was started for the community, and being a part of the community means sharing. If you don't share, then everyone loses (refer to JEM's dropping of cdramas). Bittorrent and DA works much better if you share as others have shared with you.

======================================================================

If you are willing to seed any of the series in the poll, please post a reply here or in the Korean SOTM: Volunteer Seeders Wanted! There are still several series which do not have volunteer seeders, so any help would be greatly appreciated! The more seeders we have, the more variety we will have in future KSOTM polls!


Reminder: You must have at least 10 posts to vote. Don't start spamming the forum, but this encourages you to get involved in some of those drama discussions!

Maybe the next poll would include Hwang Jin Yi? It doesn't have any seeds for most of its episodes.

I really agree with you, that is one of the dramas I wish to watch, but its imposible to download, hope people of the series of the month consider that one.
I really enjoy the selection for this series. :cheers:
Thank you guys! :D

As much as I'd like to include it in the next poll, Hwang Jin Yi doesn't have a volunteer seeder signed up for it on the list of eligible series (see this post). Without a potential seeder, we run the risk of having a series win.... but nobody seeding :(. The variety of the polls is directly dependent on ppl willing to commit to sharing. Although series nominated for the polls usually have a "halo effect", with anonymous seeders coming out of the blue to help seed nominated series, before we implemented the volunteer list, we also had the misfortune of having winning series remain seederless. The list helps ensure that there will be a seeder availabel if the series wins. This is also why I am always trying to get ppl to volunteer as a seed for these polls.

So if you can help out, please sign up! :thumleft:

Thanks a lot! :cheers:
I hope you can seed this one, in the moment I download, of course Ill help to seed too.
As Mizune point, you need to volunteer for seeding and register in the forum Korean SOTM: Volunteer Seeders Wanted!, in that way it may be able to be selected for next poll
With some luck, perhaps Hwang Jin Yi can win next poll (if is nominated)

I voted La Dolce Vita. It may be because I'm sleepy but 1 or 2 of the synopses were confusing.

I bet you do.

So now hopefully people understand why I am trying to grab as many old torrents as I can and repack them into one single torrent.
Cuz if they are just collecting dust never to be seeded again the why have empty torrents t tease people.

I can help with older KDramas. I posted a list last June of the ones I can seed: http://www.d-addicts.com/forum/viewtopi ... tm#1197857. I've downloaded more since then but I haven't updated my list in a while.

You sir are the shiznit. :cheers:

Do u think you can pack them up into a single torrent and throw them out there?

Not saying now but I think it would be a lot better if the series that are finished are pu tinto one torrent.
or at least a bath of torrent via 10 eps per torrent or soemthing liek that determined by the size of the complete torent. WHat do y'all think?

That would do.
But even now, licensed dramas are out of the question. Sad, but true. I have few but they are licensed so I'm not gonna even list them in any case.

Well I don't have the time or bandwidth to do them all obviously hehe. I'm usually filling random seed requests but I guess I could do a batch every once in a while upon request. Anything that I have and is still available in the torrent list.

Yeah, there is always a bandwith problem. Plus people usually grab it and close when they done. Really no one is keeping a batch on their pc (I mean 11 GB at least).

Fantastical: list of licensed is found here, they try to update it once in a while:

aight..I got two series in mind to upload, as soon as I figure out how to make a torrent and upload it and all that jazz.
it's either gonna be

Hometown Legend

in keeping up with the Gumiho theme
a series of 8 one-act dramas. It is the continuation of a classic series of ghost stories which aired first on KBS between 1977 and 1989 and later between 1996 and 1999. This marks the return of the series after nine years.

You know you got first say, E U put up Gumiho. It's the least I can do
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Hometown_Legends
or
Soul
http://wiki.d-addicts.com/Soul

Ha Na and Doo Na were twin sisters who were very close to each other until Doo Na died a terrible death. One day, the usually bright and energetic Ha Na finds herself changing. She has superhuman strength and can do things that nobody can. Ha Na realizes that Doo Na's spirit has inhabited her body. Shin Ryu, a criminal psychoanalyst, uses Ha Na's powers to kill people that cannot be punished by the law.

Making torrents is easy.
If you can, put both series, one after another. I would say Hometown Legends would be my first choice, but it's up to you.
I have few batches to offer (both J- and K-dramas<godss>). But I guess it's a off-topic now...

I would love to see : 마이걸 / Ma-i-geol (My Girl) as part of the poll... I couldn't stop laughing through it and by the end I was so involved with the characters that at times I found myself shooting rubber bands at the tv screen when the plot twisted where I really didn't want it to to go or a character pissed me off lol.
