A free streaming app with high resolution videos and up-to-date shows sounds too good to be true, but VIU has definitely changed our preconceptions about it. VIU is a streaming platform that allows you to watch not only your favorite K-dramas but K-shows as well—including a few Korean showbiz news clips here and there. Each program is viewable in high definition with readable subtitles.
VIU even has a playlist ready for your Holy Week binge!
The app is also quick to pick up the shows trending per region, and its speedy team promises to release subtitled versions of an on-going show eight hours after it has aired in Korea.
Tomorrow With You was one of the recent dramas that aired simultaneously on VIU.
The best part, other than the fact that it's totally free, is that you can download shows (even two at a time) and watch them offline! Totally legal and guilt-free. You're account is allotted three shows to download and store for seven days before it gets deleted from your Downloads folder. But busy girls, don't fret, you can always re-download an episode or show you've failed to watch. We heard that a premium service is underway—most probably to enable more downloads or an unlimited number of them? We've got our fingers crossed!
Downloading Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo because why not?
All you need to do is sign-up with your Facebook account or a valid email address, and down the K-drama rabbit hole you go. Guess you know what we'll be doing this holiday weekend. Brb, VIU-ing.
