Korean Dramas Start Streaming on Netflix
For awhile now, Netflix has been carrying various Korean and Chinese dramas on DVD. The selection is small and you can wait quite awhile because they are in high demand. Well, now long waiting periods are over as Netflix is starting to stream these dramas!!! Kudos. Anything is better than Crunchyroll. Why? Because I have a roku player [it plays streaming internet video on your TV). Netflix never gives me any problem on my roku player while Crunchyroll almost never works. So, I am totally excited about this news. Another bit of news to be excited about is DramaFever in the final stages of testing their very own roku app. It will be nice when I can finally watch Asian drama on my television versus my dinky 17″ computer monitor.
So far only 5 more recent kdramas are streaming on Netflix.
- Boys Over Flowers [looks like all 25 episodes are streaming]
- My Princess
- Playful Kiss
- Road Number One
- Tamra the Island
They still only have a handful of streaming available. They do offer DVDs, but the availability of those DVDs really comes and goes fast, just like the streaming titles it seems.
