Recently, I had my fanmade MVs deleted. The first one was few days ago, where my MV from Fashion 70s titled A Day By Jo Jin Mo had been deleted by Youtube on the reason of copyright infringement. Then, this morning it was my Bad Couple MV titled Sweet You’s turn
I am a bit upset. Making MVs are really a hardwork from fans. Our purpose are just to help people put more attention into those certain good dramas, in which sometimes undeservedly gained low rating during the airing. In addition, we do not even posted the whole episodes of those dramas, instead we are helping to promote the dramas for free. If it was not because of the enthusiasm of the worldwide K-Drama fans to spread it on the internet, Korean Wave would probably never happen.
Anyway, the law is the law and there is no excuses are allowed for the breach. However, I love Youtube and do not want my account with all my videos to be deleted like what had been happened to some K-Drama ardent fans. In order to avoid this I have no choice but to voluntarily deleted some of my fanmade MVs.
Since my MVs that YOUTUBE deleted were from SBS channel, so I prioritize to delete the MVs from SBS’ dramas as well. But I will reupload them again. However, from now on I will remove all tags on my videos when posting my videos there and give as less information as possible to stay under radar. They are including shorten the title of the drama. I read about this strategy from other fans but I have no idea if it will be effective. Hopefully, it works.
From now on, I will only put the full details of my K-Drama fanmade MVs as well as tags, on this blog and discussion forum or website where I post the MVs..
Below are the lists of MVs that I have deleted and will reupload again :
MV Fashion 70s – A Day By Jo Jin Mo
MV Fashion 70s – Jang Bin Theme
MV Fashion 70s – Close To You
MV Fashion 70s – Dong Young and Deo Mi Happy Ending
MV Lovers – The Lovers Theme
MV Lovers – The Love Story
MV Foxy Lady – Byung Hee and Chul Soo Theme
MV Surgeon Bong Dal Hee – The Promise
MV Surgeon Bong Dal Hee – The Romance
MV Surgeon Bong Dal Hee – Let It Grow
MV Bad Couple – Sweet You
MV Bad Couple – Gi Chan’s Said
MV bad Couple – Dang Ja’s Said
MV Perfect Neighbour – The Love Theme
MV On Air – All Casts Theme
MV On Air – Sky Love
The criteria of the MVs that I voluntarily deleted at the moment are those from SBS Channel and my MVs that came out on the first page of Google when the title of the drama were typed on Google search engine. However, I believe that it is just a matter of time when others Korean TV stations (KBS and MBC) will follow suit.
