Once the trial ends does it automatically stop or do we have to cancel it our self? And do we have to give credit card information to do the free trial?


Just like Crunchyroll, if you do not cancel your trial, it will convert to a paid membership.

However, for pre-existing All-Access and Drama members, the trial lasts until the end of the year, and it is not auto-renewal. Anime and Manga members receive a 90-day trial which does continue unless cancelled.

Given the name, I'd speculate that Kdrama might be going to focus on K-dramas, including simulcasts, and Crunchyroll is going to increase its emphasis on J-dramas. Especially since the J-dramas seem to be available outside just North America.

Email inbox or Crunchyroll inbox? I don't have a message in either, but don't know which one was supposed to get it.

Also, "look in your inbox or {click this link at Kdrama} for details on the special Kdrama offer for Crunchyroll members" in the original message would be a less confusing way to explain it in the original post.

I've been using the beta trial of KDrama.com for a while now, and I quite like it. For those of you wondering, from what I can tell it has all the KDrama catalog that's currently on Crunchyroll plus several simulcasts which Crunchyroll does not have. Since, if I recall correctly, Crunchyroll hasn't had a KDrama simulcast in several seasons, KDrama.com really is going to be better as a distinct "sister site" for Korean drama, than the Drama section of CR has been recently as a somewhat neglected stepsister.

It really does need a queue feature and ability to resume an episode where you left off (both of which I assume are planned), and it would be nice to have a new Roku channel for it (since right now the Roku kdrama channel powered by Crunchyroll is just the drama part of Crunchyroll, and doesn't have the new KDrama.com simulcasts), but I currently use KDrama.com on my iPad, and stream that to my tv via AppleTV, and that works quite well.

Anyway, happy to see this being rolled out to everyone now. I'll be watching a lot more, I think (once it's made even easier via a queue and "resume play" function).

this is a normal business practice to split off a part of a company. I just hope it works out. I like the 90 day trial though. Not sure a long trial is a good idea for them though as it will let people watch a lot of drama. I guess their hope is you will watch so much that you will get hooked.

I received an email from Crunchyroll about KDrama quite a while ago so I've been aware of KDrama for sometime. Didn't receive one recently, though. Still, I think I've had a profile on there for a while. I'm hoping it can be on Roku before too long because I'm not a big fan of watching stuff on my computer.

One word. Qwikster. There's nothing gained by diluting the brand, especially if it fragments the offerings from paying All Access here in 2015 and we don't get Korean content as part of that, requiring multiple monthly fees on each site. Very wary of this move...

I can access the site and greeted with the offer when I hit the link on the post, but I'm not in the USA or Canada and still can access the site and watch shows (I don't know if all but so far I can watch every show I click on), so is this really USA and Canada or is Mexico included? or is it an error that let me access the site and content? I hope you can answer, so I know it's safe for me to go and subscribe the service

This is nice and all, how does kdrama.com differ from Dramafever in term of content.

It could be that you're IP address has been mis-identified ... since the IP address ranges for the US (and some other countries) are overbooked, sometimes US IP addresses are assigned in ranges that were originally allocated to another country.

At Crunchyroll, you can look at the flag next to "Language" at the bottom of the page to see which region Crunchyroll has identified you as coming from. If you are located in Mexico, you should see the Tri-color Eagle, but if you've been mis-detected, you'll see the Stars and Strips instead (or Maple Leaf if it thinks you are in Canada).

If Crunchyroll detects you as being from the US, Kdrama will probably do the same, since they will share a lot of the same back-end programming.
