So many new K-dramas, so little time—but who’s complaining? In fact, if you’re looking for a new show that’s currently not available on either Netflix or Viu, we know just the app you need to download, stat. Fellow K-drama fans, meet iQIYI, an online streaming site that houses thousands of Asian dramas and movies in its library!
We know you’ve been itching to watch trending new K-dramas such as Dinner Mate and Backstreet Rookie, so we’ve done your homework for you. Both titles are actually iQIYI originals, which means they are exclusively streamed through the app.
The good news? It also offers multilingual support (because most of us need those English subtitles)! But here’s the best part: You can access these series and movies for free! If you’d rather watch the new episodes the same time they’re aired in Korea, though, you'll have to subscribe to a VIP membership for P129 per month—which is, by the way, cut down to only P15 for your first trial month. Not a bad deal at all for your unlimited binge-watching!
Whether you’re a Crash Landing on You fan who’s struggling to move on or an OG K-drama loyalist who was hopelessly obsessed with Endless Love, you’ll find Dinner Mate—top-billed by Seo Ji Hye and Song Seung Heon—a certified hit. (FYI, they even shot a scene reminiscent of CLOY!)
Backstreet Rookie, on the other hand, stars Ji Chang Wook and Kim Yoo Jung. The much-awaited K-drama just released its first two episodes over the weekend, so if you’re curious what the hype is all about, you know what to do!
