Warner Bros.’ DramaFever Korean-Drama Streaming Service Is Shutting Down

    Thanks for that link @pakalanaPikake! There is still no information about why, but the responses are good to read. There are so many of us that ONLY watch Asian dramas and movies.
    So sad, but glad for a laptop and all the other “not quite legal” sites where I can watch. I wonder what will happen to them now?

      You’re welcome, @stpauligurl!

      I saw references to the DramaFever situation in the recap thread for 100 DAYS MY PRINCE, and it surprised the heck out of me. But maybe it shouldn’t have, what with Kocowa and the way Netflix is carrying more Korean content.

    This one is interesting, too. All the other articles basically repeat their press release. I can’t understand why DB didn’t make a post about it.

      @bbstl,

      Thanks for that pointer. It sounds as if the Kdrama genre will be supplied by the forthcoming AT&T umbrella organization that is supposed to supplant the numerous small streaming entities that have been acquired — 14 months from now. In the mean time, DramaFever subscribers are left holding the bag.

        So that we can pay more to join an hbo-wannabe with tonnage of American junk and a little Korean content that’s further diluted. I spit on you, ATT! 🗣
        *regrets that there is not really a spitting emoji*
        I hope K-content providers learn to thrive without them in the meantime and can slam the doors in their face when they come back around, ptooey.

          Alas, this is typical “engulf and devour” mentality. Fie on them and the horse they rode in on.

            We kept our landline for years because if you had copper wire from the central office, you could still get a dialtone as long as the lines were up and working — because they had their own separate (low) power source, which cannot be done over non-conductive fiberoptic lines. But the phone companies have been letting copper die on the vine by cutting back on maintenance. The vandals who tear it down to sell for scrap were part of the problem in many drug-infested areas. The big crunch comes for folks like us who live in an area considered to have too-low a population density to make the investment in fiberoptic lines. My sister’s copper lines were out for something like two weeks — or was it months? — after a storm in Massachusetts some years back. I think that’s when she switched to a VOIP, as we had done.

            I had an interesting conversation with a telephone lineman around the year of Hurricane Sandy and the series of other storms that made life in NJ horrible. He said the fiberoptic buildout in our area was a year or two behind schedule already, and that it would never get to some of the outlying areas. Without copper, and with no hope of access to fiberoptic, that leaves only cellular or VOIP service. Even if you use VOIP via a cable company as we do, you’re still at the mercy of AT&T and other major telecom providers when its internet backbone goes down, as happened a few years ago.

            Time to get carrier pigeons. 😉

            @pakalanapikake, I didn’t know the technical details of how it works but I kept the landline because sure as heck every few years we have an ice storm or a near-tornado (summer) that takes out the power and the cable and I’m the only one around who still has a phone. But no more! I will do without and cut off my own nose to spite my face just to deprive ATT of my monthly fee! Kiss it goodbye, ATT 💋💸💸💸

            AT&T can kiss more than your monthly DramaFever subscription fee, Sis! Preach it! 😉

            The old copper telephone lines had to carry enough juice to activate the phone’s ringer and generate the tones for dialing a number, and probably other signaling functions the end user is oblivious to. In order to access the internet, you need an external power source for the device (PC, laptop, tablet, etc.) and the cable modem, router, etc., the jack or cable plugs into. When the electricity is out, even if the cable service is still working, you can’t access it.

            It’s stupid, and a step backward from the phone service I grew up with. Back when people used phones only to speak with, and later, send faxes over. Yep, I’m a Luddite. 😉

    Bless you. I’ve been meaning to find a good list of Korean names and their meanings for some time since behindthename.com is quite lacking in East Asian names, but just haven’t got round to it.

      You’re welcome, @sicarius. I often wonder about the meanings of characters’ names and how much symbolism or subtext I’m missing. This was a serendipitous find that even has a few Goguryeo names. 😉

      @ashes2ashes,

      I’m so glad you liked it, even if the expression sticks in your craw. I wanted you to hear the straight version first before the City Slickers’. LOL!

      As for your alternative drama soundtrack, just put the first part with solo vocal and acoustic guitar on an endless loop. You might have to fade it out for the segue back to the beginning. Problem solved. 😉
