Now that DramaFever is gone, the search is on for the best places to find your K-dramas in the coming year. Look no further, because I’ve narrowed down the top places to stream new shows legally.
OnDemandKorea has a great mix of everything! After DramaFever shut down in October, ODK picked up a large selection of their latest and popular K-dramas. ODK also offers several programs in the variety/reality, documentary, sports, religion genres and more. There is literally something for everyone on this Korea Content Platform, LLC. approved streaming site.
Kocowa is dedicated to bringing K-drama viewers the best TV programs from KBS, MBC and SBS. Lee Seung Gi and Suzy’s “Vagabond”, Gong Hyo Jin’s “Camellia Blooms”, Choi Si Won’s “Dear Citizens” and Jung Il Woo’s “Hatch” are pretty much guaranteed to be released through Kocowa. (VIKI picks up many of Kocowa’s library, but adds their own subtitles.)
Cable shows like Song Joong Ki’s “The Chronicles of Aseudal”, Lee Dong Wook’s “Touch Your Heart”, Park Bo Young’s “Abyss” and Lee Jong Suk and Lee Na Young’s “Love Is A Supplement” may be licensed by a variety of online streaming sites like NetFlix, YouTube, Amazon and VIKI.
Bae Doo Na and Joo Ji Hoon’s “Kingdom”, Kim So Hyun’s “Love Alarm” and Ji Soo’s “Because It’s My First Love” are all NetFlix productions! It’s safe to say these will start streaming exclusively there.
Happy viewing in 2019!
