You guys, we know that some of us have gone to great lengths and have depended on certain sites (read: illegal) to watch our fave Korean dramas, but that doesn't have to be the case! There are so many safe, free, and affordable alternatives out there.
Here, we prepped this list to fuel your binge-watching habits even more! PS. You're welcome.
