    photo stickers

    Please help me correct the following sentences. Thanks!

    1. With the popularization of messaging programs, recently photo stickers are taking the public by storm.

    2. K-drama My Love from the Star in partnership with LINE, not only launched heroine Jeon Ji-Hyun’s live-action feature photo stickers of My Love from the Star, but also incarnated the roles Brown and Cony in LINE Friends male protagonist and heroine in the play.

    3. They cooperated to portray the classical frame in the play.

    Re: photo stickers

    These sentences are translated from a Chinese article on Electronic Commerce Times (2014/2/24). I consider that they are useful reference materials to enrich my topic report. Admittedly, they are so poorly written in Chinese Pidgin English that it fails to convey the intended meaning. I’m aware of my limitations in English writing, so I posted these threads on the forum, hoping to ask native speakers for help to correct the errors.

    Re: photo stickers

    Ahiuhto, it would save us all a lot of time if you would quote your source in post #1 of each thread. We don't want to have to keep on asking you where your sentences are from. It's getting a little tiresome.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: photo stickers

    The three sentences are poorly written in Chinese Pidgin English, but I don't know how to express them in natural English. So please help me correct the errors. Thanks!

    Do you mean 'instant messaging programs'? What do they have to do with photo stickers?

    Re: photo stickers

    The K-drama fans can download their favorite actor's/actress' photo stickers via instant messaging programs/software.

    The adverb 'recently' refers to the past, so it may not apply to 'are taking', which is the present continuous.

    I don't understand what it means, perhaps native speakers do.

    Do you mean 'portray the classic roles in the play'?

    Re: photo stickers

    I tried to write the intended meaning as written.

    1. By the popularization of communication software,the sticker set from the Korean drama <My Love From The Star> were well-received and widely used by worldwide users/fans.
    2. The producer of K-drama “My Love from the Star” cooperated with LINE.
    3. They release heroine Jeon Ji-Hyun’s live-action feature of stage photo sticker from “My Love from the Star.”
    4. LINE will be releasing a special sticker set consists of Brown and Cony which depicts the actual scenes from the Mini Drama,<ONE LINE LOVE>, starred by Lee Min Ho, with rising Taiwanese actress Bea Hayden.
    5. Brown and Cony worked together to portray the classic roles in the play.

    P.S. I'm not sure whether the underlined part "live-action feature" is correct or meaningful.
