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 K-dramas, but that doesn't have to be the case! There are so many safe, free, and affordable alternatives out there—most importantly, these platforms offer English subtitles for your must-watch series.
Here, we prepped this list of websites you can turn to for your K-drama binge-watching habits! PS.: You're welcome.
A popular streaming service is Viki, which focuses mainly on Asian content. Viki is also (mostly) free! There's no need to pay to watch a lot of videos on its site or its mobile applications. Start watching here.
Viu is a Hong Kong-based streaming service that features Korean movies, variety shows, and movies. It also houses films from Japan, Hong Kong, and other Asian countries! You can binge-watch some dramas for free, while some are available only through its premium feature. Start watching here.
Aside from our fave Western TV shows and movies, Netflix also has a wide selection of Korean dramas, even ones that date back to the 2000s! What's interesting is that it also produces original K-drama content. You'll have to shell out a few hundred pesos per month to gain access to Netflix, but we know our dreamy oppas are worth it. Start watching here.
Pronounced as "ai-chee-yee," this streaming platform can be accessed through their site or app. You can go for a VIP subscription if you want to watch K-dramas sans the ads, but there are also series that you can view for free! Apart from dramas, you can also stream episodes of the survival show, Youth With You, with BLACKPINK's Lisa as the dance mentor. Start watching here.
This Singaporean-based streaming platform has an abundant selection of Filipino films and TV shows! It's even got films from back in the 2000s. It has a pretty small collection of Korean content (the Tagalized versions!), but we're hoping they'll add more soon! HOOQ also has Filipino remakes of several popular Korean dramas. Start watching here.
iflix actually has a section called "K-flix," which houses all things Korean such as classic dramas, new drama releases, and South Korean movies! Aside from its free content, you can also access more shows on iflix at a very affordable price. Start watching here.
