If you're looking for some K-dramas to watch online, look no further; Netflix has got you covered. The app brings some of the best movies, dramas, and variety shows right on your gadgets' screen. Its selection of Korean dramas is extensive and refreshed from time to time, so you will surely not run out of some content to cry on. 

If you haven't yet, go download the Netflix app on the Google Play Store, App Store, and the Microsoft Store. Of course, you can also go appl-less by using your web browser. Simply go to the Netflix website.

If you haven't created a Netflix account yet, you are eligible to watch your favorite Korean dramas for free on a 30-day trial basis! There's no catch. Just sign up, binge, and cancel if you're not satisfied. 

But it's very unlikely that you'll be disappointed, so let's jump to the subscription fees that you'd have to pay to watch Korean shows and movies on Netflix. Here are the fees per month:

  • Basic at ₱370 (Watch shows on Netflix on one screen at a time.)

  • Standard at ₱470 (Watch high-def shows on Netflix on up to two screens at a time.)

  • Premium at ₱550 (Watch ultra high-def shows on Netflix on up to four screens at the same time.)

If the fees are out of your budget, split the Standard or Premium plans with your friends or family. It should bring down the cost for you.

The one thing you should know about Netflix is that not all shows are guaranteed to be up in the app for long. You wouldn't know when the current line-up of Korean dramas will be refreshed, though once in a while Netflix or other news sites make some announcements. 

However, having been a user for several years now, I've seen many Korean dramas stay for more than a year on Netflix, while some just disappear like the protagonist 444 from the K-drama Black. (Yep, it's currently on Netflix!)
