Shake up Summer: drama-watching edition

August 20, 2009

I’m a big fan of downloading dramas so I can watch them without delay, but sometimes it’s better to stream them. It could be to test the waters (is it worth downloading?), fill in missing gaps (when a file is corrupted), or perhaps it’s for the ease of saving space and time. Whatever the reason, drama streaming is a viable option. I thought I’d share some sites that I’ve tried with you for this installment of “Shake up Summer.”

  • DramaFever: Right now this site only has a small selection of K-dramas, but it’s really really good and they’re expanding. They have permission to share the dramas they feature, so you don’t have to worry about them disappearing. PLUS, the subs are amazing. What’s also great about this site is how they have new dramas, classic dramas and historical dramas (which would be difficult to download with their huge episode counts). They do have a few commercials, but it’s worth it for the quality. Up until recently you could only watch by invitation only, but they have opened the site up to the public and you can even enjoy dramas without logging in.
  • AznV.tv: I haven’t used this site in forever, but I remember it being good. My only gripe with it is that it’s pretty annoying when an episode cuts out or you stop midway through for your own reasons and you can’t get back to the spot you want. I don’t know if this is an issue for everyone though. Their high point is that they have a HUGE selection of things. Their categories include anime, dramas, movies, and even TV/variety. Who can argue with that? I certainly can’t. You do have to sign up for an account to join in the fun, but it doesn’t take much time at all.
  • MySoju: This site is known for having just about everything in record speed. They also tend to have subs up way before anyone else, which is great if you’re looking for your drama fix in a hurry. I haven’t used them a lot for a particular reason: while they do get subs up fast, they are usually sub-par. Still, you can’t complain about it when more reputable subbing groups can take weeks or months (depending) to finish an episode. I suppose I also haven’t tried MySoju as much as I have visited the site because they often have projects under repair. However, it’s a small price to pay for their vast selection and timely manner. Another good point would havve to be their wide range of subtitles (which often include English, Spanish, French, Tagalog, Thai, and more). AMAZING.

Of course, you can always try YouTube, and Veoh sometimes has dramas. But YouTube is so unreliable in that a drama can be there one day and gone the next, and I can’t for the life of me get Veoh’s program to work. There are other places too, but these are my favorites.
