#2309052 BoA Special Live: NOWNESS in Japan Subbing Project

Posted by BoAddict on 05 November 2017 - 06:16 PM

Hi, everyone. Just a quick, tiny announcement... the first phase (all the segments where BoA talks) of the translations are done! As for releasing it, because I am having difficulties with getting it hardsubbed without it taking forever, I will be happy to release the subtitle file to everyone. I trust everyone will respect my work, and if anyone ever wants to use my subtitles for your own projects like Baco, just let me know!  :D


For those who have never watched with subtitles like this before, all you need to do is put the subtitle file in the same location as the video file in your computer (e.g. place both files in the desktop) and have both files named exactly the same. Then all you need to do is play the video file with a program like VLC and the subtitles will automatically be loaded. Now, you do need to have the video file yourself, which I can provide a link to where I got mine. Alternatively you can also use VLC's subtitle menu to load the subtitles (but you would need to do that every time).


Now without further ado, return to the first post and enjoy!

#2309036 BoA Special Live: NOWNESS in Japan Subbing Project

Posted by BoAddict on 26 October 2017 - 02:09 PM

Hi, everyone! As the titles implies, I am pleased to announce that I have begun subbing the NOWNESS in Japan concert! I mentioned that I had some concerns in my previous subbed video thread, but the quick responses that I saw gave me the motivation that I needed to start this project!

Now, there are some things with this project that I feel that it's right for me to address to everyone. One is that this will actually be my first project that I will be doing without a Chinese subbed video as my main source for translation, meaning I am doing all the translations (for the dialogues) based on my own experiences with Japanese (which started because I wanted to understand BoA's Japanese music lol). Please rest assure that I do know what I'm translating (for the most part) because I have taken four years of Japanese in college and even earned a certificate that allows me to work in Japan (if I wanted to). Though of course, my Japanese still isn't perfect, so there may be parts that will be slightly harder to translate. So if any translations turned out weird in the end, please understand that I tried my best in translating lol.

The next thing I want to address is the file size. I mentioned in the other thread that the file I have is already 9.3gb, so the final hardsubbed video might be over 10gb. If everyone is fine with that, I don't mind working with what I already have. But if anyone thinks that is too large, I would like to ask if anyone knows where I might find a smaller version or if anyone can help me make a smaller version. In the meantime though, I will be subbing with the large file that I already have.

Last thing is something fun that I've always wanted to try is karaoke style subbing. I have never actually done this before, and I feel that it's appropriate for this project. This will definitely take some time for me to work on, so I plan on making two releases: a first release with just what BoA says to the audience and a second release with the karaoke included too!

I don't want to overhype this project because that will only increase the pressure on me lol, but please do anticipate for when this project will be completed, and I will work towards completing this project in a timely fashion

#2308934 [Subbed Video] BoA Please Take Care of My Refrigerator

Posted by BoAddict on 05 September 2017 - 10:21 PM

For all the people waiting for this project to be completed, I deeply apologize to everyone eagerly waiting for this project for how long it took me to finally complete this project, but the wait is over! Well, just a little bit longer lol. The video is finally done subbing, and all I need to do now is to upload it and share it with everyone~


I want to take this opportunity to thank Kwcty6888 for helping me translate half of the video (in a much more timely manner than I did). You're the best!


I also want to clarify why it took so long for me to finish even after the translations were done. When I received Kwcty6888's half of the translations a few months ago, I still had to manually input each and every one of his lines into the program (copy & pasting wouldn't work), and real life kept getting in the way...


Here are the links!

Hi, everyone. I'm very sorry for a lack of update on this project. Work just hasn't been very lenient at all, but we're still hard at work on this project whenever we have time to. I'll update everyone once we can have an estimated time of release.

Hi, everyone. I'm very sorry about this, but I'm gonna have to ask everyone to please wait a little bit longer. I've been getting a lot more work than I saw coming... But I definitely guarantee that this will be released within the month!

Hi everyone! I'm very, very sorry for not posting here in a really long time! Real life just keeps getting in the way lol. But I'm back now, and I want to let everyone know that we're planning to finish this project within two weeks. I hope everyone can wait just a little bit longer! Thank you!

Just watched the episode with subs, thank you so much! It was so meaningful to watch as a long time fan, and I'm sure it was especially meaningful for BoA as well. I'm so happy she got to experience so much love! Thank you again for subbing and doing all of the work for us :)



Just wanted to say thanks so so so much!! Just got done watching and was an emotional wreck. It's always a beautiful thing to see the impact an artists has on their fans and to have said artist realize it as well and to be touched by it....


.....let me stop before I make myself cry again. XD Thank you BoA......you're the best. ♥



Thank you so much for your hard work :thumbsup:

You're all very welcome! Please share this video with your friends who are BoA fans too! :D

Hi, everyone! It looks like the results are in for Please Take Care of My Refrigerator! Since this episode is about 40 min less than the Hidden Singer episode, I think I can finish this under 4 months this time lol.

@BoAddict Hi! There is a separate thread about PTCOMR....I pasted the two links for the raw video..I hope it helps... ^_^

Thanks for pointing me there, but I don't think those dailymotion links will give me good quality to sub it on lol. And actually we don't need to worry about that anymore because I just finished downloading the raw video yesterday, so I'm ready to start any of the projects when the voting is done :D

#2304313 Next Subbing Project

Posted by BoAddict on 09 May 2016 - 01:15 PM

Hi everyone, I got some good news (which you may have guessed from the title already lol): I've decided to start subbing another project very soon! Though I would like everyone to make a vote on which project you would like to see subbed next. For now, I would like to work on either BoA's appearances on Thank You or her appearance on Please Take Care of My Refrigerator. I will check which one has more votes next Monday, and I will start working from there lol.


Also while I'm at it, if anyone is experienced with translating Chinese subtitles or is fluent in Korean and you are interested in helping me out, your help with these projects will be greatly appreciated :D

Hi everyone. Just a quick update: I'm currently uploading the video right now! Though it's going to take 10 more hours... I'm so sorry that my internet is so slow!

Hi, everyone! I have the news you've all been waiting for! As of May 3rd, 2016 (5:30 am...lol), the translations and timing for this episode is finally done! Now I just need to encode the files and upload them, which might take some amount of hours, so please wait just a little bit longer. I will definitely have links for everyone today!

#2304225 BoA Hidden Singer Subbing Project

Posted by BoAddict on 28 April 2016 - 06:43 AM

There's an update I really want to share with everyone! Starting today, I will be working full-force on the remainder of the video, so I am expected to finally finish this project within a few days! Please anticipate for the completed product in my next update coming shortly :D

#2304046 BoA Hidden Singer Subbing Project

Posted by BoAddict on 13 March 2016 - 11:20 PM

Hi everyone. I'm sorry that I couldn't quite finish it this week as I promised (but it is around 90% done now!). The remaining 10% might take a little longer since I need to resume my classes, but I'm almost there, so I hope everyone can bear with me for just a little longer!


Btw, is anyone familiar with any hardsubbing/encoding programs (preferably for Macs)? Back in BoAnoss, I was only responsible for translating and timing the subs, so I never had to encode the subs into the video. Any help/recommendations here would be greatly appreciated!

Hi, everyone! I'm so sorry that I haven't updated in a really long while! College and midterms just hasn't been fun at all... lol


While I'm still not quite done with this project yet, I do have some good news I'd like share with everyone. I'm officially on a one week break (yay! lol), and I plan to get this video fully subbed within this week! I hope everyone will look forward to it!


Now time to head back on getting this project done lol
