About

Hello!

Welcome to my little side of the internet! 또 보자 (ddo boja) can roughly be translated into "see you again", "let's meet again" or "let's watch (it) again." It is a blog that is dedicated to translating Korean netizens' comments on articles about Korean dramas, variety shows, and other relevant things in the Korean entertainment industry and Korean society/culture. 

I created this blog during my sophomore year of college in order to improve my Korean reading and translating skills. Being a first-gen Korean-American, my grandfather always ends our monthly phone calls by reminding me that I am Korean and I should never lose touch with our beautiful language and roots. What better way to improve my skills than using them on things I'm actually interested in rather than spending hours and hours on workbooks ㅠ.ㅠ 

I hope ddoboja can become a space for all fans where they can kindly discuss current topics and trends. 

Disclaimer

  • Please do not use these translations to generalize Koreans as a whole. Not all Korean citizens share the same views. That is like saying any top voted comments on TMZ represents the views of ALL Americans. Which we all know is not true. Please also be aware of cultural differences. Be respectful.
  • Sometimes there might be translation disparities due to how I perceive the original comment. I also might make English errors/grammatical errors. Thank you for understanding. 🙇🏻‍♀️  

Reminder

  • Do not steal my translations. Throughout the years, I've found that other blogs have stolen my posts and re-uploaded them on their sites. If you want to use my translated work (this includes screenshots of my posts), please credit me properly - this means: include the name of the blog or tag me (if it's on Twitter), don't just hyperlink a tiny "cr" at the bottom of your posts. Seriously, don't steal translations, that's not cool. I work a full-time job and work on this blog as a hobby of mine. It's very disheartening to see someone stealing your work.
  • I'd prefer if ddoboja remains a positive environment that can possibly grow into a community in the future. Let's not have unnecessary fan-wars. Please be respectful to your fellow readers and please remember that I am only human and I might sometimes make mistakes.
