DramaFever has inked a licensing deal with Asian pop culture producer and distributor CJ E&M to bring top-rated Korean television series and feature films to its digital video network.

The deal includes eight exclusive K-dramas, at least ten exclusive new feature films, and more than 350 hours of other drama and variety programmes. DramaFever will have distribution rights throughout the US and Canada, with some titles extending into Latin America, along with rights to redistribute through OTT and online video services such as Hulu and iTunes.

"As Korean entertainment continues to grow in popularity and influence around the world and across the US, we are committed to partnering with companies across all media platforms to help maximise the reach of our properties, and embracing the loyal fan culture that has developed online, via social media, as well as in person at events like KCON," said Mark Shaw, CEO of CJ E&M America. "DramaFever has established itself as a go-to destination for fans of K-dramas, and is an ideal home for our series and films. We look forward to building and growing this partnership together."
