Different from Korean Dramas, Korean variety shows (also known as K-Shows) are a form of Korean television entertainment which are currently a major part of entertainment industry in Korea. Usually, Korean Variety Shows are categorized in various stunts, performances, skits, games, diets, outdoors, quizzes, comedy acts, etc., and are featured by popular celebrities and K-Pop idols. Due to creative, funny and empathic program content, Korean Variety Shows are highly sought-after and popularized around the world. That's the reason why there are more people finding a good place to watch Korean Variety Shows with Eng Sub. Now let's go straight to the point.
KShowOnline is the first website I want to share with you to watch Korean Variety Shows online with English subtitles, the website name has explained everything. You'll see the top shows and latest updated shows on the homepage, to navigate the website, expand "Show List" menu on the top and you'll see all popular shows right there. Click "View more" option, all Korean Variety Shows will be alphabetically listed on a new webpage. You can also find your favorite shows using the search bar in the top-right corner. You're allowed to watch Eng-subbed Korean Variety Shows in PIP mode or theater mode with light on/off. It also provides a download option to save shows for offline viewing.
To watch online Korean Variety Shows with English subtitles in high quality, KShow123 is a good place you won't miss out. Seemingly, it has a similar layout and filter functions as KShowOnline does, you have to step into the complete show list by clicking "Shows" > "View More" on the top menu bar, and you're allowed to stream Korean Variety Shows in theater mode with light on/off as well. However, by contrast, KShow123 definitely owns a much larger database to meet your different needs. In addition, it's easy to tell if the Korean shows are RAW or subbed as there is a small label placing on the top-right corner of the show's cover, and the streaming server are more stable and smooth with fewer ADs and pop-ups.
I bet you've been familiar with KissAsian, a well-known website for Asian drama online streaming in high quality. KissTVShow is separated from KissAsian as an independent website that focuses on Variety Shows from different Asian countries. It covers a wide range of genres of Korean Variety Shows for your choice. Thanks to the built-in multiple servers, you're able to enjoy smooth streaming from 360p to 1080p FHD. By the way, the download link is right below the video player and is only available with RapidVideo/Openload/FB/FE server, but it requires you to register a free account as a premise. The terrible thing is the everlasting freaking crazy ADs/pop-ups/redirects provided by the third-party service that the webmaster cannot control, so an AD blocking program is absolutely necessary.
VoteDrama, formerly known as PollDrama, offers a wide variety of the latest Asian dramas, movies and shows with English subtitles. Click on "KSHOW" on the top menu bar to head over to a webpage that lists all Eng-subbed K-Shows. Apart from Korean Variety Shows, there are tons of Chinese dramas, HK dramas and Thai Lakorns with Eng Sub right here. Multiple streaming servers are provided to ensure the fast loading and smooth playback, and a download option will appear on the default server for simple downloading. To my surprise, with AdBlock extension installed, there is no any AD during my playback experience, which indeed makes a deep impression on me.
On DramaGo, you will get free online access to an extensive collection of Korean dramas, movies, series as well as variety shows with English subtitles. Compared with other websites mentioned above, DramaGo is designed in a concise and plain layout so that it's simple to navigate. It surprisingly offers an APP for Android users for free streaming Korean Variety Shows on the smartphone. However, the updates are not as fast as you might think, there are no recent drama and show releases available for a while. And sometimes you may come across the server maintenance unexpectedly. Alright, well even this, DramaGo is still a good alternative for your choice.
DramaCool is a must-mentioned website that is not inferior to KissAsian in either large database or great popularity. I've been using DramaCool for years to watch and download Korean drama, movies, K-Shows and other Asian dramas with English subtitles online free. Because it's so high profile, some mirror or clone websites keep emerging in SERPs, such as dramacool9.co, dramacool.ae, dramanice.so, watchasian.cc, etc. But never mind, despite some nuances, you can enjoy the same playback experience as they all use the identical streaming servers. Similar to VoteDrama, there are fewer annoying ADs on DramaCool during my test, and a download option is provided below the media player for your downloading need. Simply start and enjoy your trip to Korean Variety Shows Eng Sub.
Does the website name ring a bell? Actually, it's not the widely recognized KissAsian.sh, but one of the numerous copycats in the name of KissAsian, such as kissasian.la, kissasian.ac, kissasian.uno, kissasian.video, etc. Anyway, it doesn't bother you to watch Korean Variety Shows with English subtitles online in high quality for free. After entering the website, navigate to "KShow" category on the top menu bar, then you'll be led to a new page where gathers all popular ongoing or complete variety shows for your choice. In addition to KShows, you can also explore and enjoy more Asian movies and dramas like Japanese dramas. The dark background and clean layout may make you feel comfortable in the viewing experience.
Unlike other online streaming websites as aforementioned, MKVDrama is formally dedicated to Korean Variety Shows with Eng Sub downloading. There is no built-in streaming server to facilitate online playback, MKVDrama is a website that offers download links of a good library of Asian movies, dramas and shows in 540p and 720p. But MKVDrama does not store any media file on its own website server. All content is uploaded and saved in MKV video format on non-affiliated third party cloud storage service like Mega, Google Drive, ZippyShare, etc. But unfortunately, there is only a limited number of Korean Variety Shows with Eng Sub available on the website. It's likely that MKVDrama is still a new website, I'll keep an eye on it.
Viki and Kocowa are two decent OTT video streaming platforms that allow you to legally watch Korean dramas, K-Pop music & Kdrama news, events as well as Korean Variety Shows in English and other languages. The videos can be streamed at a fast speed in HD quality, but the downloading is not allowed due to copyright protection. Some content is offered free for a limited time while the majority of programs will require a membership or subscription to access. Instead, you are able to start with a 7-day or 14-day free trial to evaluate the performance and experience, and you can cancel your subscription at any point during your free trial without losing anything.
It is obviously needless to say anything about YouTube - the largest encyclopedia of video in this planet. I bet you know more about it than I do, don't you? :-) If you're lucky and scrupulous, there's a significant chance to find the latest Korean Variety Shows with Engsub uploaded by individual or fan-subbers in YouTube search results. However, as you know, don't underestimate the censorship, these copyright-protected videos may be removed or deleted due to the copyright infringement. In order not to miss your favorite updates, the surefire plan is to download Korean Variety Shows for offline viewing later. Now the question is raised, how to download videos from YouTube? To make your life easier, I've also prepared a solution for you below.
