Wang Kai International is Coming Back Soon!

Dear WKI followers and fans, 

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays! 

I'm sorry I haven't given you another update sooner, I've been waiting to hear more news, and well, we have some good news and some bad news. Despite repeated requests, Blogger will not give me a reason for deleting Wang Kai International (as in they just don't seem willing to reply at all), and it appears they will not be granting an appeal to restore the website where it was hosted on Blogger. It is sad that we suffered a wrongful termination on Blogger's hosting, but don't worry, we aren't gone. 

Luckily I have backups of the website and we will be moving and up again soon. We will update you once the site is ready again. (It takes a bit of time to migrate the domain and fix hyperlinks etc) We will be working hard to bring the site back very quickly because we know we all miss Wang Kai news and updates! In the meantime, we are still live and active on Facebook, Twitter, our Youtube channel and Instagram. We just updated the Jin Xing interview with English subtitles, so be sure to check out this really great interview as well as several other subbed interviews on our channel. Thank you everyone for your patience with this hiccup in the road. Jiayou~

An Update as to What Has Happened with Wang Kai International

Hi, Wang Kai and Wang Kai International followers and fans. I'm Eleanor, Wang Kai International admin and founder. Yesterday as you may have noticed, Wang Kai International disappeared and you might be wondering what has happened. 

Yesterday, Wang Kai International (WKI) received an email saying we had been deleted even though we had received no prior notifications and no DMCA notices that we had violated copyright. Just a notice that we had been deleted. Of course, this meant we began an immediate investigation into what had happened and to start an appeal for our wrongful takedown.

I have emailed Blogger support with an official appeal and explained we have received no DMCA notifications or any of other form of notification that would precipitate this sort of takedown. We are in the process of resolving this matter through official Blogger channels and we are hopeful that our appeal will be heard and we will have Wang Kai International up and running again soon. We also have back-ups for the site, so all the content is not completely lost even if Blogger chooses not to listen to our appeal, but we are hopeful they will. 

I have also checked with the service where we bought and registered our domain name and they have also received no complaints or notifications, DMCA or otherwise. 

This is what we know at this time and we have received no other official notification. We have been wrongfully targeted so please rest assured that Wang Kai International will be up again soon.

Thank you for your patience. Our YouTube channel is still running as well as our Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, and we will try and keep you as updated as possible via those channels. We will continue to translate and give news, so please don't worry. We hope you are enjoying watching Wang Kai's latest dramas! Thank you for your support and patience.

A Gift for Trot, Jo & Kakashi


Dear Trot, Jo & Kakashi (see I included you),

Here is my gift to you as I know that Yu Heng (于恒), a.k.a. your husband, has very little info available in English, so I am endeavouring to fill in that gap a little. Know that you are my dearest friends and I love you so much. Seriously, the world would be a much sadder place without you three. I wish I could give you all a big hug right now.

On the People Who Watch Asian Dramas

gif credit
I've been doing a little pondering on why I watch dramas (and still stick with drama watching in general even when so many of them aren't necessarily amazing, though some are) and I've come to some conclusions. Now of course this is more personal introspection and my own perspective, and I most quickly and readily acknowledge that. I know that drama watching is a very personal thing for people and people watch for many different reasons. Of course, feel free to add your own thoughts in the comments. Also, please forgive the very rambly nature of this post. It is late at night and I should be asleep but for some reason my brain was like: write this post!
