DreamWidth is not my main blog, please visit Gifted Ones instead. There you'll find subtitles for Japanese and Korean dramas, among other things.

In 2006 I started watching Japanese dramas and joined D-Addicts, a community dedicated to Asian popular culture, especially TV dramas. A couple of years later I got interested in Korean dramas as well. In 2011 started making subtitles. I mainly transcribe and time subtitles. If I translate, it’s from Swedish-English, or English-Swedish.

Since January 2014 I’ve been a moderator at D-Addicts. I’m also an editor at DramaWiki. I usually work on the Japanese dramas/actors/actress pages.
