Freezing ads 1/5
Why do the advertisements freeze. Business Comcast is the worst. It will freeze twice on any ad.

Almost Perfect 4/5
By Ambivalent Disaster
This is a great app with tons of great content.
It is very well organized without being visually overwhelming, which is important to me. It is similar to Hulu but with a few nicer perks. You are able to search by title or actor. If you like an actor and really want to see more, you can easily see what other dramas they are in. Additionally, you can make your own watchlists so that you can organize your content. You can easily rate a drama and comment. Spoilers are flagged so you will only see them if you choose to unhindered them. Occasionally, some will get through but other users can also flag spoilers.
The option to turn on and off the timed comments is a great idea which should make both types of people happy. The ads are annoying and excessive but by subscribing, that wouldn’t be a problem.
The only things keeping this app from a 5 star rating are as follows: Sometimes, the app doesn’t save where you left off and you have to FF or switch episodes, which can take too much time with having to watch ads until you find the right spot. Additionally, sometimes it freezes during commercial, which forces me to close the app one or more times, having to rewatch even more commercials before I can move on with the show. Also, I’d like the option to create nicknames for timed comments. Last, when you make a timed comment, you have no idea what length is too long. If you go over, it makes you retype the entire comment I and just guess.
If these small issues were addressed, I will change my rating to a 5. But overall, this is a great app and it seems like it’s getting better all the time.
Thank you to the wonderful subbers who help make it possible for people who don’t speak the language to have this opportunity to enjoy these shows. I appreciate everyone’s work very much.
The ads freezes up when I try to watch my show. The ads do not play and I have to exit out of the app. It does the same thing no matter on my phone or iPad. I love Viki, but this needs to be improved. Thank u.
Not bad but could use some upgrades 4/5
Great app. The only flaw to me is that it doesn't provide any episode descriptions.
Stop putting the same add over and over. It’s so annoying.

I don’t mind the commercials but there are some of them like frontier and the CW that crash the app every time they come on.
love ittt but... 5/5
I love this app, the dramas, and the subtitles. My only problem is the ads. I know it’s there so we can buy the pass but when I was on my computer we could skip ads and the ads were way shorter, but on my phone there are THREE UNSKIPPABLE ADS. I mean good going trying to get us to buy the pass, the thing is... IM BROKEEE so ig I have to put up with it . But it’s funny how there is a skip ad button right when the ads stop. BUT I STILL LOVEE THE APP!
Great content, poor UX 3/5
Love the K drama content and the subscription fee is reasonable. The user interface is terrible. Rewinding to the start of an episode is slow and clunky. Scrubbing through a clip is impossible. The app crashes often.
It’s aight 3/5
I lowkey hate how the ads don’t play so like I have to wait like more than a minute for it to play and then pause again, other then the ads it’s a good app.
Keeps freezing 3/5
My connection is good my phone is new but still they keep bring me to ads and then the ads freezes like I wanna watch the novelists but for some reason it not working
great, but I have some update ideas 4/5
I love almost everything about this app, but...
remove the “subtitles”, “translation”, and “payment” complaints from the review section
3 people is too little of an amount to put a flag message up on a review. Don’t put the red message saying a reviews have been flagged by others unless they’ve broken the rules or it’s 50 people and above.
add “related dramas” for dramas with 2 or more seasons
add “similar dramas” under every drama
add “marked as watched” button somewhere, to have all episodes completed if we we’ve already watched
make the thumbnails of each episode an actual interesting moment in the episode (not big twists or anything, but just something that catches our attention)
show the regions each drama is available at the bottom in each drama description
please give us the ability to:
delete our comments within episodes, under discussions, and under celebs
reply to comments anywhere we’d like
click on users to view other accounts and their reviews/collections from discussions
block users so we don’t have to see their annoying comments
the fan collections should not be the same ones displayed. Rotate.
add an option to view a separate live comment section, within episodes, to see if anyone’s watching at the same time as us
”continue watching” update ideas
Please fix the continue watching list to show exactly where the viewer stopped watching last and to resume accordingly. Have the dramas that are completed be automatically removed from the continue watching tab. Stop my completed dramas from appearing back in the continue watching list.
add a watch history and give us an option to remove or clear certain dramas if we don’t want to watch anymore
Too much adds 3/5
Viki is almost perfect. The thing is it is missing a few of my favorite dramas on it. Also another fact is there is way to much adds in one ep at least I get 4 very long adds, it’s drives me crazy, I know that if we pay money add will be gone, but noooo I don’t want to pay any money
Best App for Korean dramas n music shows 5/5
By Becca Sinkes
Best app !! My kdramas n kpop shows !!!! Love it !! 감사합니다 비키
Spoilers everywhere!! Warning! Spoilers in discussions. 1/5
Viki refuses to offer any options to block the users that post spoiler information. Don't waste your money unless you are fine with a show possibly being spoiled just by going to the show’s main page. Nothing is hidden. It is the first thing you see. ——-
Love the app! Hate the users! Way too many spoilers posted in the discussions with no way to block them. This seems to be getting even worse lately. There has to be some type of moderation. Even viewing discussions on an actor/actress page (not specific to a show) will have spoilers. Please, give an option to flag/hide these.
I am UPSET 3/5
I don’t really like the concept of the Viki pass it’s very unnecessary like why you got to make us pay to watch ad free or to watch more episodes of tv shows or movies I am sure you have your reasons to do this but why you got to. Also why can’t you just not make us pay for our free trial
Needs improvements 3/5
The shows are complete and everything but now I’ve been getting adds literally every five minutes it bothers a lot and I’m not going to pay for the plus
It seems the ad thread keeps running in the background, even when I quit the app and restart it, it still tries to run the same ad. I think you put the ad thread on the wrong place and that causes OS wide bug maybe.
Horrible Maintenance/ Too many issues to list 1/5
First, many issues have risen and when contacted for support, no feedback or answer was given, I was just waiting for days for an answer/response and never got one
Another issues is problems with the watch party. It won’t work properly for everyone within the party no matter what and when one issue is solved, another one comes
The only reason why I still barely engage in this app is because it’s available at most time, if anyone has any better app than this, please let me know
Also the subtitles when it says 95% the English subtitles will not show. 2/5
When I watch something on my laptop there is so many ads there would be 5 in a row. it says I have to buy the pass for everything to work.
Loving It 5/5
I love all the shows with the excellent actors
서비스 엉망 1/5
비키 플러스 신청 했더니 두달간 돈만 나가고 아예 영상은 못 보고 서비스센터에 연락도 안 되고 아예 무대포..
내 돈 $20 돌려 주세요
아님 두달간 비키 플러스가 정상 되게 해주시던지
....고객센터에서 아무 응답도 없고 이런 경우가 어디 있습니까
The ads pause 3/5
I love this app, but the pausing on the ads are very annoying.
Same ad 2/5
Plays the same ad over and over again
great app but 2/5
i really like viki and i don’t mind the ads at all since it’s free. but i literally cannot get through one episode because the ads always always always freeze and won’t play. it’s ridiculous and i can’t enjoy the drama. please fix please
Needs better interface 3/5
Not pleased with the rental fees being applied on top of Premium fees. Specially when there are so many shows that are “Not available in your region”. At least work on the interface if you’re asking for rental and premium fees. Although collection of available K and C dramas is one of the best I’ve found.
Rentals are ruining this service 2/5
Now that Viki is making some of the popular movies and dramas series as rentals only, I’m seriously considering dropping this app. When I pay to subscribe as a Viki Pass Plus member, I shouldn’t have to pay extra to rent something. Extremely disappointed in Viki.
Slow ads 3/5
The ads are not playing and they are to slow
Crashes a lot 1/5
Freezes constantly. Update didn’t fix it.
Fix the ads 1/5
Fix the ads. They stop and then I have to hit
learn more then then go back into the app but then after three seconds it stops again and I have to continue doing that
I love Viki very much, it has a lot of k-dramas I wanted to watch and couldn’t find it on Netflix or the full episodes on youtube. But, Adds. Adds not my favorite it pops up every time. And for a lot of inpatient people like me would really like the adds to be cut shortly. The adds is 2-3 adds and makes me really stressed out but overall I love this app!
Too many ads 1/5
You are over doing with the ads. There are so many and often during a show that if I were any normal human being, I would make it a mission to not support any of the businesses that advertise on Viki.
Misleading on subtitle language availability 1/5
I signed up for the paid subscription because of one show that I wanted to watch. The app claimed the show has 100% completion of Simplified Chinese subtitles. Only after I paid and started watching did I find out that the 100% is only for the first episode, and the second episode has a mere 44% completion. Then all the rest of the episodes have no Simplified Chinese subtitles at all.
This is a good app just that I don’t wanna pay I can just watch movies on Netflix 5/5
This app can do better
Ads every single 5-10 seconds 1/5
I downloaded this app on my tv but there is literally adds ever 5-10 seconds. I can’t even get through the opening without another 30 seconds of ads. What’s the point then? I’m just going to stream it on my phone.
BEST APP EVER 5/5
OK so from my POV I will say this is the best app ever because 5 years ago I’ve been in love watching Korean drama Chinese drama etc all the type of dramas TV shows in this app have shown me so much like I can watch so many TV shows and movies in different type of countries languages etc it just the best when I say the best I mean the best u can do your free trial or you can have your monthly pay you can pay but it’s FREE WITH ADS ! So u don’t have to do the trial n everything else !!!!
great could be better 4/5
I have been using viki for 3 years now and I recently got viki plus it’s amazing I love it. And viki such a great place to watch dramas especially if you’re knew to dramas. It’s a little pricey to some people but definitely one of the safest and greatest place to watch dramas. One problem is though they are very slow with subtitles and it mostly takes a day for a new episodes to have all subtitles. I totally understand though it’s hard to put subtitles. But if you want to watch a new episode of a drama viki most likely isn’t the fastest and earliest for all subtitles unless you already know the language of the show you’re watching then you’re lucky. But overall it’s a great choice!!
One change 5/5
It has to have an English language
Love it! 5/5
I love the variety of dramas from Korea to China. Thankful that Kingdom:Legendary War is available on Viki!!!

idk what’s happening 2/5
By intensegamer.LOL. not really
I only got the app recently and really liked it! I have the free version and was watching a show but everytime it’s about to play an ad pops up and it just freezes. completely freezes and can’t do anything about it. I tried watching a different episode and reinstalling but it still did the same thing
The only bad thing is you have to pay
Great app 5/5
By Far shade
Enjoy it a lot even music has translation I learn more English this way
Middling to Medicore for What You Pay 3/5
The Good: There are many Asian dramas from Korea, China, Taiwan and Japan fully translated to English and Spanish (both languages I am fluent in). The volunteer teams do a great job of explaining Asian norms and idiomatic expressions that help the non Asian audience understand what is going on. I appreciate them so much because I have learned a great deal about Korean culture present in k, c, and j-dramas.
The live comment section is genius! I have laughed and had great time watching Asian dramas on Viki versus Netflix just for the peanut gallery comments. Dramas with great viewer comments include Flower of Evil and Lie After Lie. My enjoyment of those dramas increased substantially because of those comments. Love, love, love it🤣🤣🤣
The UX is a pain to use. Streaming developers really need to sit and copy Netflix’s UX because you can be completely computer illiterate and learn to use it in 2 minutes. They are the standard for a reason and I wish other streamers would stop fronting and just copy their’s and make life easy for their viewers.
Viki’s is a pain to use because they show you all the shows they have but once you are watching a show you don’t know to navigate any settings. I learned how to turn on and off viewer comments from the viewer commenters because so many people were asking how to do it in their commentary.
The radio buttons make no sense and you always have to navigate out of your drama to make any changes-subtitle language, etc. The UX also tends to not record you watched partially or completely an episode when you have watched and ends ups restarting instead of leading you back to the last spot you were watching. The whole user experience just tends to be a mess.
TRANSLATION TURNOVER and shows deemed premium content!!!
These are my biggest gripes. I have a monthly paid subscription. On Netflix if they put an Asian drama on the service, it is completely translated making for a smooth experience. Even if the show is new and is only showing episodically week by week, when they upload it, it is fully translated. For example, I watched It’s Okay Not To Be Okay on Netflix and within a few hours of it’s airing in Korea it was uploaded on American Netflix FULLY TRANSLATED because Netflix PAYS and acknowledges their translators on each episode of the translated show.
My issue is Viki purports to be a service with completely translated dramas but relies completely on volunteers, mostly female, who are UNPAID and unacknowledged until the show’s end. It bothers me that this app, owned by Rakuten, a Japanese company, doesn’t pay their translators, who do a better job than Netflix’s to be honest.
Because Rakuten doesn’t pay their translators, you have popular current shows uploaded with no or incomplete translation for days while people in the comments complain and gripe. People who pay for the service feel slighted and wronged when this happens as is happening now with the K-drama Mr Queen.
In the summer of 2020 a popular K-drama from 2013-2014 called Empress Ki came to the app after popular demand but it was not fully translated in English and was deemed premium content. A drama over five years old that viewers were clamoring for and they didn’t have a team set up to fully translate it to English before Rakuten uploaded it??? How Sway??? I literally dropped my premium plan for a basic one because of this incident.
Rakuten needs to have paid translators because I have moved from a premium plan to a basic plan because I don’t comprehend why I’m paying monthly for raw audio of popular Asian dramas, some of them years old, that I can’t comprehend. Also, their whole business model seems to be exploiting the charity of women in the target language and it sits wrong with me each and every day. If the translators were men they’d be paid money and not verbal appreciation from the commenters only.
Shows will change from basic paid content ($4.99 in North America)to premium content ($9.99) without warning or explanation. This happened in the fall with another popular k-drama from 2005 called My Lovely Sam Soon. I watched this drama the entire summer with a basic subscription but when I went back for a rewatch in the fall, it was suddenly premium content. I get Hyun Bin is a hot commodity since Crash Landing On You (a Netflix exclusive) but this was such a money grab by Rakuten that I have soured on them since. I can also watch two fully translated dramas by Hyun Bin on Netflix-the aforementioned CLOY and Memories From The Alhambra-with a basic plan there that I won’t have to worry will suddenly turn into premium content.
TLDR: UNPAID TRANSLATORS are good, Rakuten Viki UX BAD and exploitative.
