Something happened for 2015; no, actually it started earlier when KBSWorld started making more and more dramas available via their YouTube Channel. The powers that be at the networks (at least one) realized just how many non-Koreans were interested in their daily dramas! Read On…
Daily Dramas have really been a staple in my drama watching life since I started my very first one, Crazy Love, followed closely by one of the best dramas ever, Ugly Alert. When KBSWorld started broadcasting them on YouTube, many of us watched them together in a group (cyber group that is). But the bad thing about the KBS dramas, they were starting to really get super crazy (Ruby Ring) or just plain boring! Sure, there were occasionally other websites that would English subtitle these dailies but they slowly disappeared in 2014.
So beginning of last year, a new website (ondemandkorea.com) sponsored by MBCAmerica came to the scene. One of the first things I noticed when I found out about the site was the number of daily dramas that they were providing with English subtitles! Joy!! I’ve watched 5 on the website last year! 5! The daily dramas are definitely taking over my watch time! I literally have no time to watch regular dramas. Like I stated previously, the number of regular Korean dramas I watched for 2015 consisted mostly of web dramas and cable dramas; very few main network dramas did I watch and finish.
So why this post? As you can see from the picture, there are now 6, count them, 6 more daily dramas being subbed. 2 have already completed (Bird That Doesn’t Cry, The Stars Are Shining) and the rest are currently airing! Between all the new Chinese dramas we are watching as well as Japanese dramas, I literally have no time. Just wait until all my U.S TV shows return, I’ll really be complaining!!
Last point…did I forget to mention that someone has finally picked up the latest NHK Asadora (93rd), Asa ga Kita? Damn! Why bother with sleep?
