Ok CR now I know it was an bug or something and I can't access the kdrama site anymore, now I get the US and Canada only message, to bad but I hope for a region expansion soon, because for what I was able to watch, the service is worth it, and please don't geo-lock the news, again!

Anime member here. The 90-day trial signup requires a CC, but like on Crunchyroll I prefer using Paypal.

Any workarounds?

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).


It already does this for me?

I was expecting shows like Family Outing and Running Man. Are those going to be added in the future?

viki.com is another great alternative to dramafever, if of course you use adblock. It has Running Man also. You get the shows allot quicker then dramafever. Although I pay for dramafever.

did you use your username or your email address that's associated with your cr account. Kdrama uses the email address.

Pretty cold and heartless to deny Viki advertising revenue ... and the original creators the royalties they are owed. If you don't want ads at Viki, do it the honest way and sign up for their new ad-free paid streaming plan.

Until they get Roku, I'm not signing up for their paid streaming, but I definitely am not going to freeload off their ad-streaming.

Thank you!. That prompted me to explore more. I do consider "favorites" to be basically equivalent to queue, and I do now see that if I click on an episode I'd started it does go the point I left off at. However, one thing it does not do when you click on a show in your favorites is to the current episode in progress or next episode you haven't watched--it always defaults to Episode 1. I recently learned there is a "Watch History" in Settings, so one can look there for the last episode one started, but it's all very clunky compared to how things are on the Crunchyroll site..

Unfortunately, I almost never use my computer for streaming, and have been watch KDrama on the iPad app.That does have a "Favorites" feature, but it currently has no watch history, and when you choose an episode it always starts from the beginning--not from where you left off.

I'm happy enough for now, but I'd be disappointed if new features weren't added before long.

I got All Access just for the anime and manga, and drama just kinda came along for the ride. wonder what kind of package deal will be available for bundling just the anime/manga at Crunchyroll after the current period is up, or if it will still be just as cost effective to get all three services rather than just the two.

EDIT: After perusing some of the above comments, it does seem possible All Access pass would still include J-Dramas, perhaps with K-Dramas moving to the new site. I'd be down with that. Having an increase in J-Dramas might make it worth it, but if not, a smaller price tag would be nice.

I don't actually recall Crunchyroll ever having a K-drama simulcast ... the majority of catalog titles were K-dramas, but all the drama simulcasts that I remember were either Japanese or Southeast Asian.

I'm definitely giving Kdrama a try once the new Roku channel comes out ... but until then, I have a big enough backlog of series to watch on Android or my PC that I'm not likely to get around to it.

Hmmm. I thought Arang and the Magistrate was a simulcast, but it's quite possible I remembered incorrectly. It's true that everything else I recall as simulcast were Japanese--I've also only been using Crunchyroll for about 2 1/2 years, so my personal memory doesn't go back all that far. I think the first drama simulcast I watched (just a couple of episodes of, because it wasn't very good) was Secret Agent Erika (either I I've got the title not quite right, or it's no longer available on CR).

Yes, you are right that one was more or less a simulcast (it seemed to catch up closer to broadcast halfway through ... it was 2-3 episodes behind at the start but by episode 10 a pair was getting up on Crunchyroll a couple of days after broadcast), compared to dozens and dozens of Kdrama catalog titles. There may have been one or two more, since I don't pay as much attention to the dramas unless they are historical series.

By contrast it seems like there have been more J-drama simulcasts than J-dramas added as catalog titles ... the Japanese catalog titles have mostly been B-movies.

So both having 12 simulcasts up at Kdrama and having the a number of J-drama catalog titles coming (not yet announced on site) are substantial changes.

I really like how I (All Access) get to try this until the end of the year. How big their catalog of dramas end up being by the end of the year will determine whether I use it. It'll be interesting to see how this works out for them!
