Constantly Hooked on Korean Dramas

January 15th, 2016

When I was a cable subscriber, I had access to a channel that would show Korean programming with subtitles. The most interesting thing to watch on the channel was the dramas. They’re not that different from American soap operas, but they usually have a limited run, rather than running for many years. Eventually I got rid of the cable subscription and lost my ability to watch the dramas, but I came up with an alternative idea. If I couldn’t watch through my television, then I would try to stream Korean drama programs.

I was worried about being able to watch the dramas online without some kind of block. Usually overseas countries try to keep other countries from viewing their content because by region locking it. I’ve experienced this a lot when trying to watch content from Japan, and it can be quite annoying, especially when there is no other way to access the content. You would think that in this day and age, companies wouldn’t be so resistant to people from other countries being able to access their content, especially when in many cases, they are willing to pay for the content.

I found a website that had many Korean dramas and regularly added new episodes. The website had subtitles and even an option to change the video quality. Under the cable subscription, I would get new episodes two weeks after they had already aired in Korea, but on the website, the episodes are uploaded the same day that they air. I don’t know how they are able to get the subtitles made so fast, but they do a good job with them. I’ve gotten a couple of my friends to watch the dramas, and now they’re hooked on them. It only takes a few episodes of a silly plot to attract a viewer.
