Korea punches well above its weight when it comes to the arts, creating blistering fiction that has taken the world by storm, through Manga, through movies and now increasingly through TV series. Countries like the UK have already become absorbed in Nordic dramas, proving a market for subtitled TV. Ep Drama is an online video site committed to bringing the best Korean programs to Koreans living throughout the world, and has begun adding English subtitles to their programming so it can attract a wider audience, expanding their coverage to include more shows than ever before. —
From classic favorites like The Return of Superman, in which working fathers return home to spend more time with their families and reconnect with neglected children, to the new Running Man show in which teams of friends must escape being locked in famous landmarks overnight, the website aims to showcase the full breadth and variety of Korean television.
The English subtitles ensure that international audiences can be as engaged as native Korean speakers, while the free to view service ensures no one with an internet connection will be restricted from accessing and viewing the shows on the site.
A spokesperson for Ep Drama explained, “We are very proud of the high quality of Korean television production, and we want to act as evangelists between Korea and the rest of the world. We have a vibrant, modern culture here and a compelling imagination that has been the inspiration for many of Hollywood’s film adaptations in recent years. Here, individuals can see Korea entering its own golden age of television, and get in on the ground floor of great dramas with superb performances that in a couple of years may well be the next big breakout hit internationally – and all for free.”
