Are you having trouble finding somewhere to stream your favourite K-drama or movie? Look no further, here is a small list of websites dedicated to streaming a host of TV shows, dramas and movies from all over Asia! These websites may not be new for any avid K-drama viewers, but if you know of any others, please let us know and we can update this list in the future. Now lets get started!
Lets start with a big one. DramaFever. It was first launched in 2009 in New York by co-founders Bak Seung and Park Suk with a single drama available. Over the years, DramaFever has grown into one of the leading streaming website for the best TV shows and movies from around the globe.
Today, DramaFever offers hundreds of series, variety shows, movies and even kids programming in multiple languages. Our passionate audience is rapidly growing around the world, and DramaFever is available in more countries than ever before.
You can watch your favourite shows for free, although you will be interrupted by adverts occasionally. Or you could sign up to Premium Membership with a monthly subscription of only $1.49 a month! What a bargain!
Next we have another well known site. Viki. Launched a year after DramaFever in 2010, the name “Viki” is a play on the words “video” and “wiki”, meaning a collection of videos from all over the world. Boasting a viewership of 195 countries, Viki has quickly become one of the leading websites allowing people to discover, watch and subtitle global prime time shows and movies in more than 200 languages.
You can watch as much as you want without needing to create an account with Viki but if you are a sporadic viewer
like myself you might not finish a drama you started for a while. But if you have an account with Viki, you can see your watch history so you can just pick up from where you left off without all the fuss of figuring out what you saw last.
Lastly, we have KissAsian. This is a fairly new streaming website having only been around since the end of June 2015. With this in mind however, and the sheer number of shows and films available, from the 10 East Asian countries selected, it is sure to take off in popularity sooner rather than later. KissAsian is a part of a collection of websites such as KissManga, KissAnime, KissCartoon and ReadComicOnline.
All viewing with KissAsian is completely open and free, and to top it off, you can even direct download a video off the website and watch it offline whenever you have time! Just right click on the video and click the “Save video as…”, pick a location and wait for it to save!!
Another site is MyAsianTV, this also has a large collection of movies and dramas from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
Having only started earlier this year, Dramanice is a fairly new streaming website. New but in no means small, this site contains episodes from countless drama and films from Korea, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Japan, just waiting to be watched. Follow them on Facebook here.
We hope this has been insightful and we wish you all Happy Streaming.
