Cheongja corners Keumshil; Bong-hee breaks up with Ji-wook

KLIFE, the K-drama video on demand channel, has five new dramas you can watch per episode on Spectrum Cable (was Oceanic Cable) channel 81. One of my favorite drama series just recently finished, “Whisper,” is now available. The mega-buster series, “My Love From the Star,” starring Kim Soo-hyun and Jun Ji-hyun, is also now available. The “Royal Gambler,” “Mask” and “The Time We Were Not in Love” make up the other three series recently uploaded. KLIFE video on demand channel started in May 2007 as one of the first video-on-demand channels in the U.S. for K-drama, Korean movies and educational programming. Some content is free while others have a fee depending on what you view. KLIFE will be adding on more and more popular K-dramas that have already broadcasted on air.
