Let's face it. One doesn't always have time to binge-watch a full episode of a Korean drama. One just wants to laugh and be relaxed but a full episode of a Korean drama usually lasts more than an hour. So this where web Korean dramas or web dramas, come in. They are short but sweet and entertaining.

With around 350 million views, one of the pioneers of web dramas in Korea and on Youtube is PLAYLIST. PLAYLIST started branching out to more global audiences by adding English subtitles in their web dramas thus giving birth to PLAYLIST GLOBAL. They have lots of web dramas under their belt but the following are the reasons why PLAYLIST GLOBAL is one of the best Youtube channels to watch great web dramas.

1. The range of web dramas they produce

Are high school romance and friendship web dramas your choice? Then you have the continuing series of Seventeen and A-Teen. If you are in college and want to identify more with characters your age, you have web dramas such as Twenty, Love Playlist, and Just One Bite. Web dramas such as Growing Season and XX, on the other hand, are for more mature audiences. No matter what age you are or what genre you like, PLAYLIST GLOBAL has it for you.
