Do you hear that fellow readers? That’s the sound of me shouting from the rooftop how thrilled I am with Netflix right now. Quick, grab your headphones, snacks, and any k-drama watching essentials!
Wae, you may ask? It’s because the site has finally added of wealth of new k-dramas to their lineup. The reason I’m so over the moon is because the k-drama changes have been very few and far between in the last six months or so. I’ve pretty much exhausted myself by constantly checking and wishing and hoping that some more options would arise. I mean, I love and support sites like Viki, Soompi TV (formally k-drama), and even Drama Fever.
But what grinds my gears? Ads. Lots and lots of ads. And repetitive ads at that. I know, I know. It’s a free service, so the ads shouldn’t bug me that much, right? Except my computer almost always freezes on these blasted advertisments and it takes me three times the normal amount of time just to watch one episode. Of course, this could be fixed with buying premium accounts. But seeing as I already have a Netflix subscription, and it’s the most I can afford right now, it’s my go-to place for high quality k-dramas that are ad free. One of these days, I will quit my complaining and find a way to afford premium subscriptions on other websites, but alas, that’s a story for another time and another post.
Here’s the point: If you have a subscription to the streaming site, you’ll be pleased to know that there are some new offerings on the site. During the last six months, k-drama additions have been pretty scarce, so this a pretty major change for those of you that use the streaming service. Below, I’ve compiled a list of all 9 dramas. Also, don’t forget to look here if you’re newer to Netflix and need help finding out how to find k-dramas on the site.
