Watching Korean dramas is one of the best ways to escape the real world and relieve stress. But if you’re broke, then it becomes difficult to watch them because most of the streaming platforms, like Netflix, Prime Video, Viu, etc., require subscriptions.
To save you some money, I’ve collected some websites on which you can stream Kdramas for free! No need to pay; just stream your favorite dramas. Not that some of these sites are illegal, and I recommend you use a VPN.
Viki is one of the best legal ways to watch Korean dramas for free. Popular dramas like Reply 1988, Mr. Queen, Taxi Driver, Happiness, etc., are available on Viki and are subbed into different languages.
While watching an episode, you will encounter a few ads, although streaming is free. But it is okay because you are able to watch dramas legally. Its app is also available on Android and iOS.
A lot of dramas are available on YouTube to watch. These dramas are uploaded by the official TV channels of South Korea. The two channels that provide full dramas to watch are SBS World and KBS World TV.
Some popular dramas, such as Dr. Romantic, The Heirs, Pinocchio, and My Strange Hero, are available, and they also have English subtitles. You can check the playlists of these channels to browse the list of dramas.
Dailymotion is a legal website on which people upload all types of videos, including dramas. Just search for the drama name, and if you’re lucky, someone might have uploaded it with good video quality.
There are no pop-up ads, just some banners and skippable ads, so you don’t get frustrated. You can also download the Android and iOS apps on your smartphone, which makes it easy for you to watch dramas without visiting the website.
4. MX Player
MX Player is the best website to watch dramas online in Hindi. This platform is available in India, and all the Kdramas are dubbed in the regional languages so that you don’t have to read subtitles.
The worst thing is the ad. While watching videos, unskippable ads appear frequently, so you have to bear with them for a while. But you get to stream dramas in HD quality. You can also download the app.
Kissasian has all the Korean dramas, even the old ones, but it is not a legal site, so watch at your own risk. The dramas are already subbed in English and are available in many video formats to watch.
There are many servers to watch. If one server doesn’t work, then you can switch to the other ones. It also provides the ability to download episodes to watch offline. Again, you will be bombarded by a lot of ads.
This site is not new to anyone. Everyone knows Dramacool, as it is quite popular among Kdrama fans. You can browse, search, filter, stream, and download released and ongoing dramas for free.
The website also includes a drama calendar where you can see which episodes of each drama were aired on TV and watch them accordingly. It is not a legal site and consists of popads.
7. OneTouch TV
This website looks just like an app. Therefore, it is easy to navigate and can be easily used on mobile. There are a few banner and pop-up ads on the website, but they are not shown while watching an episode.
It also has an unofficial Android app that you can download and install. You can change the streaming quality and server for each episode. Besides dramas, it also has Korean movies.
This website is primarily a downloading platform, along with a few dramas for live streaming. OnlyKdrama offers you to download the episodes in different qualities (540p, 720p, 1080p).
One of the best things that this website offers are dramas dubbed in English and Hindi. So, if you don’t want to watch them in Korean, you can download their dubbed version. This site has fewer ads.
9. Drama Day
Drama Day is another website where you can download dramas with different video qualities from various websites like Mega, Google Drive, etc. It doesn’t allow you to watch dramas online.
One drawback is that you have to download the subtitles externally since they are not included in the video. But don’t worry, you get a link to download subtitles on the same page.
Don’t underestimate the power of Telegram. It has become the new platform for all types of content, including movies and dramas, around the world. Many Telegram channels upload content every day.
You can also get some dramas on Telegram, where you can download them. You just need to search for them and find a channel that has uploaded them. You will also be able to get some dramas dubbed in other languages.
I saved you a lot of pocket money 😁 and I have also added all the links to these websites, so you don’t need to search for them. If you are unable to access any of these sites, use VPN.
