After serving the kdrama and jdrama community for the past nine years, streaming service Dramafever is officially shutting down.
It was one of the most prominent streaming services that delivered Korean, Japanese and much more to the world with English subtitles.
It opened back on August 6, 2009 and slowly but steadily became one of the biggest streaming sites for kdramas.
On October 16, 2018, Dramafever shocked fans with one final message to its subscribers, the message reads,
“Thank you for nine great years
As of October 16, DramaFever has been shut down.
For nine years, DramaFever offered a place for streaming the best Korean, Chinese and Japanese dramas on-demand, straight to your device. We appreciate the passion of our fans and it’s been a privilege to deliver you this content.
While this decision is difficult, there are a variety of business reasons that have led to this conclusion. We appreciate each and every one of our fans and their passion for the content DramaFever was able to bring into your lives.
We’d like to take this time to extend our thanks and gratitude to you, our loyal subscribers. We’ll be issuing refunds as applicable, and subscribers will receive an email from us with details in the coming days.
The DramaFever Team”
