Ughh I cant believe that other guy is beating Binnie by half! I dont even know who he is and I cant read his korean name since I'm not korean. could anyone tell me who that guy is? he's not very cute =/...let's all support Binnie!

Just finished watching the first epi last night on youtube, i'm already hooked! the first epi's very good! it was really sad though, and i have a feelingit's gonna get sadder but it is still very interesting, good plot. cant wait for eng subs for the 2nd epi! his hair looked kinda weird in the first part, but still so cute. Poor guy, looks like he lost quite a bit of weight. Thanks to everyone who makes the episodes w/ subs possible, u guys are so0 awesome for working so fast! =)

The other guy is Kang Ji Hwan, and I'm also surprised that he's beating Binnie in that poll.

As for SQ, Binnie had to lose about 6 - 7 kg (about 12 - 14 lbs) for his role. SQ is getting more and more interesting. Can't wait till Monday~! :w00t:

ohh so that's who that guy is, yeah...i cant believe he's beating Hyun Bin by that much, he's not cute and he's not that well known, well i def. didnt know him =/..but yeah, let's just keep showin' our love for binnie! =) Awws...no wonder his face looked thinner, wow that's quite a bit of weight!! i would think they'd make him buff up instead of slim down since he's playing the role of a boxer. that's weird.

OhhhH..Serenity! arent u one of the ppl that's on the team to sub this series? 'cuz i think i saw your name at the beginning credits for SQ epi 1. Do you know when the 2nd epi will have eng subs? b/c alot of the episodes are already posted on youtube but they dont have eng subs. just wondering when so i can check back on it..cant wait to watch more it, it's really good! and btw, thanks to you and your team for subbing this! u guys rock! ^_^

Episode 2: 8.2% (Nationwide)
Episode 3: 6.0%
Episode 4: Seoul: #20 - 8.3% | Nationwide: #19 - 8.9%
Episode 5: 7.4%
Episode 6: 8.7%

Perhaps because of Jumong? Jumong has been #1 spot... I don't know maybe they fill the same time slot...

It's also on KBS... Not everyone's favorite channel... MBC and SBS are head to head while KBS lacks...

This is also very teen boppy... High schooler stuff... Although quite good and I had tear in my eye tonight... :cry: Hyun Bin recently got famous after SamSoon... Other than that he wasn't too known even though he made movies...

anhnie rhanks for the ratings. they're indeed low. but it's a great drama. and most of its viewer's just watch online. they don't count online viewership in the ratings right?

no prob alecs! yeah you're right, most of us view it online anyways. I think the ratings are based on how many housewives or women tune in to watch TV dramas in Korea and this series is more for younger people and I guess ppl dont catch on to dramas as quickly as comedies. But i'm sure the ratings will get better, the series is def. gettin' more and more interesting! Sung Yuri's acting has improved alot and of course, we're always gonna be supporting our Binnie!

Hey choisim, I had trouble DLing it from clubbox too so I had my brother upload it on his comp and send it to me as link, and it was very easy to DL and open. Here's the uploaded link that you can DL it from, just DL the subtitles from the subtitles section in d-addicts, and open it up with the file and it should work.

Snow Queen, Epi 2:

and Epi 3:

Good luck and let me know if it doesnt work! =) hope it works for ya.

Really? That's awesome! Good to hear b/c it is a very good drama so far: interesting plot, beautiful cinematography, and good acting/chemistry between the two leads. I agree, reviews are more important than ratings b/c ratings are based on how many ppl watch it in just Korea, but good reviews will get ppl from anywhere in the world to watch it.

Oh yeah, do you know where I can find those reviews? I'd like to read some of them. Or if you post some of them in this thread, that's be great. Thanks in advance!

Here's a Korean article about SQ's 1,000,000 online viewers. If someone can translate the article, thanks in advance.

`눈의 여왕` 온라인 대박!...VOD 100만명 시청

Google translation of the article tite:
"Snow Queen" on-line big hit! VOD (Videos On Demand) 1,000,000 people are watching.

‘일주일 동안 무려 100만명이 시청...’
[TV 리포트] KBS 2TV 미니시리즈 ‘눈의 여왕’이 온라인상에서 가장 인기 있는 드라마인 것으로 밝혀졌다.

지난 한주동안 KBS 홈페이지 VOD서비스의 조회수를 살펴본 결과, ‘눈의 여왕’을 본 네티즌들은 무려 100만명. VOD서비스가 방송을 찾아봐야 하는 능동적인 형태의 시청방식인 점을 감안한다면 대단한 기록이 아닐 수 없다.

‘눈의 여왕’은 방송 첫 주, 각종 포털사이트의 드라마 검색 순위 상위를 기록함과 동시에 VOD 다시보기 서비스에서 폭발적인 클릭수를 기록, 화려한 온라인 신고식을 치뤘다.

이는 현재까지도 이어져 첫 주, KBS 전체 프로그램 중 5위로 출발했던 순위가 5, 6부가 방송된 3주차에 들어서면서 ‘황진이’, ‘열아홉순정’, ‘소문난칠공주’, ‘대조영’ 등의 인기작들을 제치고 1위에 오르는 기염을 토했다. 이쯤 되면 시청률로 인기를 가늠하다는 게 사실상 무색할 정도.

이에 대해 제작사 ‘윤스칼라’의 박인택 대표는 “동시간대 경쟁작 ‘주몽’ 때문에 시청률면에선 고전을 면치 못하고 있지만, 시청률이 전부는 아니라고 본다”며 “재방송도 없고, 방송3사 중 유일하게 무료 VOD서비스를 하는 악조건이지만, 매회 수십만 명의 시청자들이 인터넷과 케이블TV로 드라마를 본다는 소식은 배우들과 스태프들에게 더없는 힘이 되어주고 있는 상황이다”고 소감을 전했다.

현재 ‘눈의 여왕’은 태웅(현빈)과 보라(성유리) 커플의 본격적인 멜로 라인이 가동하기 시작하며 극의 재미가 더해가고 있는 상황. 지금의 기세대로라면 온라인이 아닌 오프라인에서의 시청률 상승도 기대해 봐도 좋을듯 싶다.

-------

Someone, PLEASE explain to me how this drama is boring. Low ratings do not AUTOMATICALLY mean the drama is bad. MBC's "Jumong" has 40%+ ratings because there are many loyal viewers. KBS's "Snow Queen" and SBS's "Snowflakes" have lower ratings because of the competitive Jumong. Many Koreans watched it online and of course that doesn't count towards the TV ratings. It's not fair to judge any drama solely based on the ratings.

------

Now the question is WHY would KBS2 choose to broadcast "Snow Queen" during the same timeslot as Jumong?

Here's a little info:

It wasn't entirely a coincidence for the debut airing to schedule on Nov 13.

TW's buddy, Jeong Kyu aspired to be another Kim Duk Koo, the late South Korean modern legendary boxer (to win at the International Mathematical Olympiad was NOT his dream, but his father's) who died in 1982 (the year both TW & SK were born) after a bout with Ray Mancini.

The below was taken from Wikipedia:
Kim was a hot fighter in his region who had won 12 straight bouts when he was assigned by the WBA as the world's number 1 challenger to world Lightweight champion Ray Mancini. Prophetically, he wrote the message "kill or be killed" on his Las Vegas hotel room's mirror only days before the bout.

Mancini and Kim met in an arena outside Caesar's Palace on November 13, 1982. In what many ringside observers have described as an "action-packed" fight, Mancini and Kim went toe to toe for a good portion of the bout, but by the latter rounds, Mancini began to dominate the young challenger. Spent and battered, Kim went into round 14 with little left and Mancini dropped him. He got up, but the fight was stopped and Mancini retained the title.

Minutes after the fight was over, Kim collapsed into a coma, and was taken to a hospital. Emergency brain surgery was performed there to try to save him, but that effort proved to be futile, as Kim died 5 days after the bout on November 18.

The Aftermath
Mancini went through a period of reflection, as he blamed himself for Kim's death. After friends helped him by telling him that it was just an accident, Mancini was able to go on with his career, but Kim's death would always haunt him. The bout's referee, Richard Greene, committed suicide in February of 1983, and so did Kim's mother, four months later.

The Snow Queen was written based on the elements from Hans Christian Andersen's book AND it's a tribute to Korea's lengendary boxer, Kim Deuk Gu.

I give the SQ team a lot of props for their efforts to air this drama exactly on November 13.

Wow...I didnt know this series had so much historical background, it makes it even more meaningful to watch, I love watching stories that are somewhat linked to a true story. So Hyun Bin's character is going thru the same emotions Mancini did, it makes more sense now. That is a really sad story and I'm very interested to see how Hyun Bin's character moves along with his life. Thanks for the background info Serentity! It was really interesting.

And yeah, I dont see how SQ is boring at all, it is actually a really unique story based on what it's based off of. Just b/c Jumong is getting better ratings does not mean that the quality of SQ is not as good, b/c not all ppl watch series thru tv. And while Jumong as loyal tv audience support, SQ has very loyal online audience support b/c dangGg..1,000,000 viewers? wow...hehe, i myself, am a very loyal online fan b/c i need the subbing and I really cant wait for the next epi to come out. I'm hooked.

This really is a quality series and the ratings should not bring down its content value. Ignore the ratings and give it a chance.

its not very fair for u to say that... :cry:

i think its already established that annessa does like hyun bin (as according to her post) but is just not a fan of this particular drama. besides honest criticism is always better than blind obsession ne? :-)

to be fair, this has been a well explored theme in kdramas already,
well maybe not to the exact same details but we've seen the terminal diesease, rich-girl poor-guy, long lost childhood lovers, bodyguard and spoilt brat, and the normal sappy story lines quite often already

haha, to be honest at one point i was sick of it too, but thank god i had a breather with some fresher idea type kdramas (my girl, my love in prague, goong, alone in love, soulmate) to restore my love for kdramas in general :lol

i do agree however that the actors here are fantastic, Sung Yuri seems to have improved a great deal and is playing bora really well. and seeing hyun bin here is a nice change from his usual roles...

i do hope that ppl will give this drama a chance coz it seems promising and despite everthing, its worth a watch even just for the cast, coz somehow or rather they make the audience engrossed with the drama (or at least they made me engrossed even tho i wasnt too keen with the plot) :wub:

thanks for the ng caps skachild.

also, thanks Serentiy01 for the background info. it made me appreciate this drama a lot more.

i am a not a fan of either actors nor am i a fan of tear-jerky dramas. and although i find this drama to be so similar to MISA and Ijuksa, i still love it. it has its flaws but it has brilliant aspects also.

and because of my love for this drama, i've decided to spare my time into making a fanmade MV which i wanted to dedicate to the entire D-fansubs team and all the Snow queen fans all over the world.

hyun bin's acting ability really shows in this drama - this boy is really going so where..as for the gal, i dont really know her so i'm not being biased. I am currently watching both snow queen and one fine day in which she plays the leading actress. i dont like her both in these two drama. her acting is mediocre, so bland, so no substance..but she must being doing something right for her to be always getting these leading roles :scratch:

i hear the viewing rate in korea is doing not so good, i do hope it picks up - i love this drama so far and similarly, i dont like to watch depressing dramas that has a tendancy to drag usually but this one has somehow caught my attention..

i love this drama ... this is my first time to post in d-addicts, but i regularly browse the threads just to check the drama subs, especially if i dont understand the subs in the dvds i bought ...

i really appreciate the effort the subbers are doing ... i wanna thank especially the subbers for snow queen ... you're the best ... i finished downloading the first four episodes yesterday, and yeah, i just found myself hooked on this drama already, and i cant wait for the other epis with english subs ... i know the subs for epi 5 are already released but ill just wait for the torrent files of english hardsubbed before i download them (in fairness, i can still control my addiction haha) ...

good work, guys! thank you very much =)

Quick Question..How many episodes has aired in Korea so far?
I think I just finished watching episode 5 or 6 and that girl shows up!!!! I'm pretty sure she is the girl who proved that Tae-Woong was innocent when they accuse him of copying from a book. At first, I thought, its kinda late to add her to the plot since she Bora already knows who he is but then again, that girl could help them both realize that Tae-Woong's dead friend is Bora's dead brother and that was the reason why he didn't show up at the meeting......on another note, is it just me or was anyone else a little turned off by the beginning of the drama..the age difference was kinda big, probably because I didn't think of Hyun-Bin as a high schooler so it was kind of disturbing to me that they were love interests..

WATCH IT! You totally need to watch it if you're a Hyun Bin fan.
I'm not a big Hyun Bin fan at all (don't kill me! :lol ) And I LOVE Hyun Bin in this!
But it is pretty sad-ish... But I'm only on episode 9..

OMG so much drama in just the first two episodes
I bet the girl dies, or TaeWoong goes back to school, becomes a doctor and finds a cure for her. What do you think will happen? :blink
