How do you keep up on Korean TV & Movies

Postby paekdusan » March 16th, 2010 5:18 pm

Hi! I'm new here and maybe this topic has already been covered in-depth somewhere. But I'm wondering how you (those of you that live outside of Korea) keep up with Korean TV and movies.

I live in Seoul right now but will be moving at the end of this month. It's easy for me to keep up on what's popular now because I see the ads on TV and hear about dramas and movies from those around me. But how do you guys keep up with this stuff when you're not in Korea?

I'm familiar with several sites that allow you to watch Korean dramas online (e.g. mysoju, 우리넷, etc.) but how do you know what to look for in the first place? Are there any good blogs or websites that you can recommend?

Thanks!

Korean Drama

I find http://www.hancinema.net/ very helpful in this respect - the news stories often involve current or upcoming dramas (particularly those featuring famous actors), and they also regularly post which is the most watched drama of the week, so you are able to see what is currently popular.

Hope this is helpful.

I was seriously disappointed trying to find working videos for Queen Seon Duk on mysoju. Luckily, I found http://www.dramafever.com where you can watch for free but with (annoying) ads, or pay $5 a month to get rid of the ads.

After watching the Dockers ad with men not wearing pants about 100 times, I forked over the $5. Anyway, dramafever has great quality video, no ads, reliable, comment threads, etc... Excellent selection for a newbie to kdrama like me. Old stuff and new.

When my semester ends in a few weeks, I am diving head first into one or two new dramas. I can't wait!

Keeping up with dramas

Postby Arev » April 25th, 2010 11:38 am

The best way to keep up with upcoming dramas is dramawiki at http://wiki.d-addicts.com/. You will find links on the home page on that site for upcoming Korean, Japanese, Taiwanese, Chinese, Hong Kong and Singaporean dramas and there is also a link near the top right corner for dramas that are currently airing. You can also look up actors, actresses and other celebrities on that site and see all of the dramas and movies in which they have played a role, including a photo of them and a synopis about the dramas. That site even lists mangas and a lot of other infromation. It is very helpful and I refer to it almost every day.

Also, http://dramafever.com keeps a lists of dramas that they will add to their site in the near future and the dates on which those dramas will be available. They tend to come out a bit behind the Korean tv schedule, but its not too bad unless you are really anticipating something. For example, the last five episodes of 추노 were added last week and they will start running 동이 on May 13, I think.

You can also find a lot of dramas immediately after they are aired in their native country (within less than 8 hours usually) on viikii.net and on youtube.com.

Hope this helps!

:shock:
I just know Youtube. Youtube updates the latest Korean Movies and TVs. Just subscribe those channels playing Korean videos with official video watermark, those channels always update latest related video news.
