Following the investment by Japanese telco conglomerate Softbank, DramaFever is exploring new contents and territories where to launch.
In the past few months, DramaFever had started adding Korean films (such as The Fatal Encounter on November 7 (1)), and even animation. It is now diversifying a little more by adding Korean Internet-only dramas and miniseries, such as hit web drama Love Cell (on November 10 (2)).
In an interview to C21Media (3), co-founder and co-CEO Suk Park also mentioned that the global footprint and financial backing of Softbank would facilitate its international expansion.
As such he aimed at having launched across Europe by mid-next year, after the UK launch which was in March 2014. The launch in Spain and Portugal might come second and third as the company already has Spanish and Portuguese subtitles through its presence in Latin America.
Park specifies DramaFever is carefully considering their options based on language requirements and local preferences.
