DramaFever partners with CJ E&M to bring you exclusive Korean content
DramaFever is pleased to announce that, in a multi-year deal with Korean entertainment company CJ E&M, we have gained license to exclusively stream new top-rated Korean content, including eight exclusive K-dramas, at least 10 new feature films, and over 350 hours of other drama and variety programs.
The new agreement will bring multiple CJ E&M dramas and movies to DramaFever, including I'm a Cyborg but That's Okay, Cheese in the Trap, Twenty Again, High School King of Savvy, Grandpas over Flowers Investigation Team, and Three Musketeers.
Mark W. Shaw, CEO of CJ E&M America, stated, “As Korean entertainment continues to grow in popularity and influence around the world and across the U.S., we are committed to partnering with companies across all media platforms to help maximize the reach of our properties, and embracing the loyal fan culture that has developed online, via social media, as well as in person at events like KCON.” He continued, “DramaFever has established itself as a go-to destination for fans of K-dramas, and is an ideal home for our series and films. We look forward to building and growing this partnership together.”
As part of our partnership with CJ E&M, DramaFever will be the exclusive drama category sponsor at KCON USA presented by Toyota, a convention for all things Hallyu that takes place July 31 through August 2 in Los Angeles, CA and August 8 in Newark, NJ. DramaFever will host special events featuring exclusive CJ E&M content, such as current trending hits Oh My Ghostess and Hidden Identity. The screening room at KCON in L.A. will also feature special live appearances from the Director Go Min Gum and star Son Ho Jun (Answer Me 1994, Jeju Island Gatsby) of Mr. Baek the Homemade Food Master. Contests and quizzes will take place after the screenings, and fans will be able to take selfies with life-sized cutouts of their favorite drama actors.

DramaFever's mission has always been to bring the best TV Shows and Movies from around the world to our viewers and we're doing just that.” He continued, “The growth of the Korean entertainment movement has been astonishing, as can be seen by the influence and popularity of K-Dramas and K-Pop music beyond Korea, throughout Asia, and into North and South America. We are excited to add CJ E&M’s highly rated TV shows and critically acclaimed movies to DramaFever’s line-up, and to be connecting with fans of this genre, in person, as part of KCON 2015.”
