1. Viki

Rakuten Viki is the number one site for streaming and watching Kdrama. Being an international platform, it’s the place to go when you’re looking for both old and new Kdramas. This website has English subtitles and other languages like Spanish, French but to mention a few. 

What we also love about this platform is that in addition to Korean Tv shows and movies, there’s a category for Chinese, Taiwanese and Japanese content. So you can also access other Asian shows even on the mobile app.

Unfortunately, not all shows might be available in your region. This is because they require a license for every show across specific geographic regions. Also, since it attracts millions of viewers around the world, it sadly has a lot of ads. So if you don’t like pop-ups, this might be a turn-off for you.

2. Dramacool

This is another popular streaming platform for Korean, Japanese and Chinese dramas especially if you need English subtitles. The series on Dramacool are in HD and their servers are super reliable. We love that you can get the most recent dramas on this website and even when it’s not yet available, you can ask them to add them. Unlike Viki, you don’t need to worry about any geographical restrictions. Here you can watch Kdrama and access all other asian shows available on the website. Episodes are also organized so you can stream them individually. 

3. Drama Hood

Dramahood is a pretty minimalist website. Here, you can get a mix of Korean and Chinese dramas with English subtitles. You can sort dramas based on their categories or release year. They also have a movies category similar to Viki – so if you can’t wait to complete a series, you can start here. Most importantly, they regularly update their content, so you can look for newly released episodes of your favourite show in the episodes category.

4. Kiss Asian

This is another pretty popular Kdrama website that offers English subtitles. There are a ton of categories you can explore here. From action, and thrillers to romance. There are also Korean movies you wouldn’t find anywhere else here.

Looking to watch new dramas as soon as they are released? Then this is one website we recommend. Not only do you get new releases, but you can also track upcoming shows here too. There’s also a chart that shows you the top dramas for the week, month and day. 

Unfortunately, the user interface on My Asian TV might not be so modern. However, once you know what show you’d like to watch, we recommend searching for it directly. That way you can access the synopsis and episodes.

8. Asian Crush

Asiancrush is one of the best websites to download Korean and other Asian dramas. One feature we love here is that when you’re overwhelmed with what show to watch, you can tap on the random button and the website will recommend one for you. Watch Livestreams, or add shows to your watchlist.
