Heisui’s Thoughts: Thank you D-addicts!
If you’ve ever wondered how people get sparkly HD screencaps of dramas, how streaming sites magically upload English subtitled dramas, how people find jdramas that are unavailable elsewhere, and who maintains the handy “Dramawiki”….it’s all thanks to this amazing site called D-addicts. This is the place where you can find Dramawiki, fan subtitles, HD drama sources, discussion forums, etc. Over the years D-addicts has been known as a reliable, organized and efficient drama source. It’s especially important to me as a jdrama fan because it’s one of the best places to find jdrama sources and fansubs. My jdrama watching experience wouldn’t have been the same without it.
Unfortunately just recently a D-addicts admin announced the news that D-addicts will no longer be providing torrents for dramas. Little has been revealed about the sudden decision except that it’s due to the admin’s personal reasons. That doesn’t mean that D-addicts is totally closed down–it’s still providing Dramawiki, discussion forums and the precious subtitle sharing forums. But plenty of fans (me included) are acting like this is the start of the drama apocalypse. X_X I suppose you could equate it to the horror that everyone felt back in the day when Mysoju (an old popular drama streaming site) closed down. It’s shocking and saddening news because so many people depend on D-addicts as their main source for dramas.
A lot of fans are not only expressing shock and sadness, but also gratitude towards D-addicts. In the end, we can only say “thank you” to all the contributors at D-addicts for serving the drama community so faithfully and for sharing the drama love. It’s thanks to D-addicts that I was able to watch so many wonderful jdramas. I hope drama fans will continue to support D-addicts and the fansubbers! 🙂
