Although when it comes to the Taiwanese drama, people may consider it as a mixture of classic Korean drama and Japanese drama, Taiwanese drama also attracts quite a lot of adherents with its unique charm as a small niche group of Asian dramas. Compared with the most sought-after Korean dramas, Japanese dramas and Chinese dramas, it seems a bit difficult to find a good place to watch Eng-subbed TW dramas online, most of Asian drama streaming sites only offer RAW TW dramas. So I have gathered a website list for you to binge-watch your favorite Taiwanese dramas with English subtitles.
KissAsian definitely earns very high praise as being an online platform for watching a humongous list of Asian drama TV series and movies with English subtitles, including Taiwan dramas. Click on the link above to head over to all Eng-subbed dramas filtered by Taiwan. Multiple servers are offered to switch back and forth for keeping a smooth playback. The chief drawback is that you have to suffer from various malicious ADs, pop-ups and redirects, it even requires you to disable AD blocker to make it work unless you upgrade to Premium by earning KPoint. In this case, you can give another shot on KissAsian mirrors or imitators like kissasians.org, kissasian.la, kissasian.ac, etc.
DramaCool is another decent hub that provides a huge selection of Asian dramas with English subtitles like HK drama, Thai lakorns, etc. The website interface looks quite elegant and friendly, hover your mouse over the "Drama" tab on the top navigation bar, you'll find all Eng-subbed Taiwanese dramas right there. Good news is they keep updating the episodes and normally get subs up pretty fast. Compared with KissAsian, the ADs have significantly reduced, and you can obtain a better playback experience with an AD blocker enabled. Likewise, other DramaCool branches like dramacool.so, dramanice.so, watchasian.cc, etc. are also worth a try.
FastDrama is a new website I recently discovered. It's also a good option to watch Taiwanese drama with Eng subs for free. When you access the website, all recently-updated dramas are well organized on the homepage. In pursuit of ultimate simplicity and user-friendliness, it only offers three filter features on the top navigation bar: "Menu", "Recently" and "Search". I don't think there's any need for explanation. Hover your mouse over "Menu" to expand the drama list by countries, which includes K-drama, Korean variety shows and movies, Chinese dramas/movies, Japanese dramas/movies, Thai dramas/movies, and Taiwanese dramas/movies. It will place a "Sub" label on each episode if it has been subbed by volunteers or fan-subbers.
To be honest, I'm more into the appealing layout of ViewAsian. It is a fantastic portal that gives you access to superabundant free Asian dramas in HD quality. It features more than 180 genres for you to screen out interested dramas. To watch Taiwanese drama with EngSub, hover your mouse over "Country" tab on the top bar, and head over to "Taiwanese" category. All TW dramas, movies and variety shows are sorted by updated time on a new page. To make the results more accurate, you're also allowed to click "Filter" button at the top-right corner to do further screening. Registration is not necessary for normal streaming unless you want to favorite, comment or request some movies or dramas.

If you're lucky enough, there is a good chance to find the new updated episodes of Taiwanese drama by submitting related search queries. But obviously, those videos have violated the Community Guidelines, YouTube will remove the content involved in copyright infringement sooner or later. Therefore, it's a smart choice to timely download those Taiwanese dramas with EngSub for offline watching. No worries, given the circumstance, I've also prepared a solution below.
