Looking for Korean Subtitles for HBO programming
« on: September 06, 2011, 10:49:28 PM »
Hi,

Teaching a media class, and I'd like to show an episode of The Sopranos, Treme, and The Wire (as examples of various American dialects), but I'm unable to find Korean subtitles for any of these shows in Google.  I've already made lessons, but feel it would be --slightly-- too difficult without Korean subs.  Would they perhaps be on the "Korean internet" (Naver, etc.)? Buy you a beer for info  8)

Depending on the level of your students, it may work to just give them the English script or provide English subtitles. I like to show lots of clips from American television, and my high intermediate students do fine with the written English. For shorter clips, I show it first without subtitles, and then, I play it a second time with subtitles or a script. We are then able to go over new vocabulary and phrases, and it challenges them to listen extra carefully the first time.

You can find a lot of Korean subs on www.subscene.com . Good luck.

Search for gom 자막 and then just type in the name of your show, usually pretty good for popular shows.
cineast,co.kr is also good but takes a few more steps to find the subtitles which might be a little confusing if you don't know some Korean

This.

Cineast is for movies only.  However, if you do want to use www.cineast.co.kr and don't speak Korean, hover over the 4th tab at the top (자료실), then click on the first option on the dropdown menu (자막자료실).  You can then type in the name of the movie or TV show in English and away you go.

For TV shows, For TV shows: http://midcafe.kr/ is a better bet.  Again look for 자막도운로드 (last button in the top row), click and you can search in English. 

Both of these sites have reputable translations (more or less), which can't be said necessarily of subscene and the like.
