This project is dedicated to my father (1952-2017). As well as PannenkoekenNL (????-2019), I didn’t know him very well, but he was an active member of the Asian drama fans community.
Subtitles are named the same as the videos they sync to.
Go search known sites where dramas can be found.
- Episode 2: A few lines are incomplete because the translator had problem with the Tsugaru dialect.
I will not be able to provide subtitles for the complete drama. The subtitles have been transcribed from an old incomplete VHSRip. I’m hoping that maybe someone will be able to help out with the missing parts later on. Unfortunately no Japanese subtitles exist.
I’m willing to do the timing if anyone can provide translation for the missing parts. You can contact me here. Of course you will be given credit.
