Tech N Stuff: Sensational Dubbing App ‘Kwai’
Gone are the days when only the rich and powerful had themselves represented through visual mediums such as paintings and drawings.
After many centuries, technology now allows people of any status to have their images displayed for anyone to see. Photo and video based SNS apps like Instagram are basically the modern day portrait paintings of the Renaissance period. The purpose of modern-day SNS is ironically more for showcasing oneself to the public than for actual communication. Envy is what we want people to feel. And we actually do feel it, especially when we see our favorite K-Pop idols flaunt their flawless good looks through SNS. One app in particular has been in the spotlight recently and our favorite K-Pop idols have been showing us how to use it the right way.
Developed by the Beijing Kwai Technology Co., Kwai is a rising trend-setting video app that allows you to make short videos and slideshows. It has recently been used by many K-Pop idols as well. Some useful tools that help you make more interesting videos are music libraries, filters, photo frames, text fonts, and bubble effects. It also allows you to explore videos that have been shared publicly and see if any users are nearby. The videos are also able to be shared through Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, and KakaoTalk. One popular feature of the app allows users to dub their voice with lines from famous movies or dramas, vocally impersonating a character.
NaYeon seems to be having fun yelling something that appears to be a famous line in K-Drama.
Bona looks even more adorable with the rabbit filter on, doesn’t she?

As if she wasn’t impossibly cute enough, ChengXiao has the cat filter on while asking for nice things to eat.
The background music is quite hilarious and adorable at the same time. The way EunSeo‘s facial expressions change is quite entertaining to watch.
Actress Han ,YeSeul has also tried out the app by using her acting skills to take on the role of a young girl making a fuss.
However, the app doesn’t sync your lips 100% to the lines, which means that you would have to know the line well enough or practice in order to end up with nice results. HyoJin hilariously shows us what happens if you don’t know the lines well enough.
Overall, the app is extremely fun to play around with, especially the voice dubbing feature. The app is compatible with both iPhones and androids. You can get the app for free on the iTunes App Store and Google Play Store.
