It’s time for K-Drama-Pop the Fourth! Our Rioters talk DramaFever, their 2018 K-drama picks & what they want to see next, and what K-pop bops & OSTs they’re loving.

DramaFever Pulled a David Blaine
October 16th was a dark day for K-drama lovers. DramaFever unexpectedly ghosted us, leaving fans in the middle of watching new dramas and without old faves too. Where do we go from here? Sherin, Angie, and Makeeya dig into the sudden shutdown, the alternatives, and the moves Netflix, Hulu, and Viki are making (for better or for worse).

What’s Up K-Drama?
2018 has not been a fruitful year for K-drama. Only a few series pulled us in and our ladies break down why. They look at the changes in trends of the latest shows, the heroines they love watching, and where the latest adaptations are coming from.

Thank U, Next
Ariana Grande may have broken the internet this month but K-drama is the thing that’s taking over completely. As more and more networks catch on to the fact that…y’know…K-drama is HUGE, they’re still trying to figure out a delivery system that works. Sherin, Angie, and Makeeya share what they really want from an Asian drama streaming service. Netflix, we hope you really are listening ’cause these ideas are #legit.
