Earlier on this month, the Viki and Soompi team hiked north from our home base in San Mateo to host our very first collegiate event at the University of California, Berkeley!
What’s better than watching K-drama on your laptop? Enjoying it on the big screen with your friends, free food, Viki and Soompi swag, and even Snackfever boxes!
We teamed up with KUNA and K-Popular, two of the campus’ biggest Korea-centric organizations, to screen the very first episode of “Moonlight Drawn by Clouds.” The series may have just come to a finale, but that didn’t stop us from re-living the joy of the first episode.
The Viki team kicked off the evening with a quick introduction to K-drama, and then it was time for that magical moment – Kim Yoo Jung and Park Bo Gum took their spots on the big screen. Whether they had seen the drama or not, the students were able to enjoy the first episode with their own version of live timed comments – from squeals of joy at the adorable to gasps at Park Bo Gum’s character.
After the screening we also had a trivia session to test attendees on their K-pop and K-drama knowledge. The prizes were special Viki x Snackfever boxes full of Viki swag and delicious snacks.
All in all, it was a solid night for fans of K-drama and pizza. But most importantly of K-drama.
