Crunchyroll and MBC partnership, Coffee Prince and more

Post by james_sama » Mar 18th, '09, 05:02

Edit: yeah, looks like Coffee Prince, Jumong, Soulmate, and like 30+ more coming out soon, probably all MBC titles. Crunchy had dramas a while ago but took them all down due to licensing - now it's back legitimately.

From a press release, looks like kdramas are now legitimately streamed on video websites:

Crunchyroll, the online world's #1 destination for Asian content and social networking service, announces a strategic partnership with the Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) to stream more than 30 complete Korean dramas series, of which the first will begin streaming week of March 16, 2009. More information can be found at www.Crunchyroll.com.

The bad news is that the MBC dramas are accessible only in the U.S. (and its territories), Canada and Mexico.

Wow, CR getting K-dramas too now?

I guess it's not too surprising since they've been airing anime titles simultaneously and sharing licensed shows too. But still very interesting to see it happen.

It's really not surprising that they're streaming MBC dramas, since dramafever has been legally streaming them since last december. Though it's great the MBC is giving permission so their shows can be legally streamed.
