Hope you’ll find it helpful!
KDrama is enjoying increasing popularity in the world today. And you can easily find many Korean dramas with English subtitles on the web because of the large demand. Yet for raw Korean dramas, the one without subs, it’s a different story. As far as I know, only a countable number of sites offer raw KDramas for free watching and downloading. And I have listed these sites below. Read on if you are interested!
WonderFox Free HD Video Converter Factory is a well-praised converter & downloader to save any video/audio from numerous sites like YouTube, Twitter, Viki, etc. in high resolution. Your best helper to download all your favorite movies, dramas, and songs handily for free!
1. OnDemandKorea (Streaming) - OnDemandKorea is the top destination for watching the most recent and popular Korean dramas, movies, variety programs, news, documentary, etc. in the raw version. Most of the content is free with ads. And you can access PREMIUM content for 24 hours after upload. It has an app for mobiles and is supported on Roku. Yet this service is only available in North/South America.
2. SMALLENCODE (Download) - This is a place where you can direct download small-sized raw Korean dramas, raw Japanese dramas, and variety shows for free. Yet it has a small database of KDramas, a total of 556 dramas available as of writing this post. But you will find many new dramas updated on this site timely. And it provides multiple download links and resolutions to choose from.
3. Dorama x264 (Download) - Like SMALLENCODE, Dorama x264 is also an encoding group that offers direct downloads to a huge variety of raw KDramas, JDramas, CDramas, etc. And it has over 1,500 Kdramas cataloged in its database now. All are available either in raw or soft-subbed (can be turned off) version and is encoded in MKV format. However, it does not provide any variety shows.
4. (Not Working) Kayvideo & Jootune (Streaming) - I put these two sites together because they have the same Korean drama resources that are embedded from other sites like Dailymotion, Tudou, Youku, YouTube, and many more. And they provide most of the Kdrama raws in HD quality. Yet they are Korean sites and require you to understand a little bit of Korean to use the sites.
5. Viki (Streaming) - Though Viki is famous for the multi-language subbed Asian dramas, it can stream Korean dramas without subs. Yet it has only limited KDrama resources, and you are not likely to watch any of the latest or popular Kdramas as you wish. And it is geo-restricted to North/South America.
Besides the sites mentioned above, you can also find scattered raw KDrama episodes uploaded on YouTube, Dailymotion, and so forth. In case you need to download KDrama raw from these sites, here is a suggested way. First of all, you’ll need a tool named WonderFox Free HD Video Converter Factory.
