CJ E&M Movie Channel Arrives on DramaFever


NEW YORK/LOS ANGELES: CJ E&M Movie Channel, which features a library of Korean films, has become available on demand to premium subscribers of DramaFever’s OTT digital video network.

Created as part of a previously announced, multiyear licensing deal between CJ E&M and DramaFever, the channel launches with around two dozen films on its initial slate. For the first three days from launch, 20 Once Again, an international hit (including in both South Korea and China), will be free to view before moving behind the paywall.

Additionally, CJ E&M and DramaFever have teamed up to offer fans seven weeks of giveaways. Each week through the week of March 7, a prize will be awarded to those who enter.

“Our partnership with DramaFever began at last year’s KCON K-pop fan convention, where we saw firsthand the connection between its subscribers and our content,” said Mark W. Shaw, CEO of CJ E&M America. “As the leading destination for the most popular Korean dramas, DramaFever is a great distributor for our top films, and we are confident that the CJ E&M Movie Channel will be incredibly successful.”

“We have greatly enjoyed our partnership with CJ E&M and look forward to furthering our relationship,” added the president and co-founder of DramaFever, Suk Park. “The CJ E&M Movie Channel will provide our fans with an incredible selection of titles, including something for everyone: from action movies and thrillers to historical films and romantic comedies.”
