If you love watching Chinese dramas and you want to watch them legally for free, you can actually watch them on YouTube.
Here are 10 Chinese drama YouTube channels to subscribe to:
1.YoYo Television Series Exclusive
YoYo Televisions Series Exclusive claims to be the biggest up-to-date Chinese TV series channel on the YouTube.
With more than 1.5 million subscribers for this channel, we couldn’t help but agree.
Perhaps one of the reasons that it has huge following is because some of the dramas even come with Indonesian subtitles apart from English subtitles.
If you don’t know what to watch on this channel, we suggest Young Blood Agency and Tornado Girl.
Speaking of large followings, Tencent Video is perhaps the largest Chinese video streaming website.
As of March 2019, it has over 900 million mobile monthly active users and 89 million subscribers.
You don’t have to subscribe to the websites to watch Chinese dramas featured there. You can also subscribe to its official YouTube channel.
There you can find variety videos from entertainment shows to Chinese dramas.
Some of the hottest dramas from Tencent Videos in 2019 is Put Your Head on Your Shoulder and Detective L.
3.Chinese Huace & TV Official
While most of these Chinese drama YouTube channels did not bother to group their drama into proper playlist, Chinese Huace & TV Official went to great lengths to categorize them according to genre.
Subscribers can choose dramas from categories such as Modern, Costume, Period and War.
Some of the dramas even come with English, Indonesian, Turkish and Portuguese subtitles.
4.Kukan Drama Channel
When We Were Young, Mr Swimmer, The Dark Lord are just some of the high-rated dramas being featured on this Chinese drama YouTube channel.
Interestingly, it also has channels dedicated to Vietnamese, Spanish and Arabic viewers.
On the down side, some of the dramas are not made available in Malaysia.
5.Croton Mega Hit
This Chinese drama YouTube channel is owned by Croton Media, one of the biggest TV drama producers in China.
Sadly, a handful of dramas from Croton Mega Hit are not made available in Malaysia.
But you can still watch some of them such as Love 020 and Boss and Me with full English subtitles.
If this Chinese drama YouTube channel sounds familiar, it is because it is one of China’s top online video and streaming service platforms.
On its channel, you can also enjoy its entertainment shows and documentaries but most of these shows are without English subtitles.
So far, one of our favourite dramas from this channel is Fall in Love.
7.HLBN Entertainment and HLBN
Most of these Chinese drama YouTube channels such as HLBN welcome their subscribers to help in the translation subtitles.
So if you are well-versed in English and Mandarin, consider doing it for the common good of all Chinese drama fans.
While most of the dramas are not available in Malaysia, you can still watch some of them such as Lost Love in Times and Hey Daddy.
The Chinese dramas uploaded on this channel are mostly interesting and highly rated.
However, you need to sign up as a member to watch some of them.
The good news is you can still watch dramas like Colourful Bone, a love story set during ancient turbulent times.
9.Mango TV Drama Channel
The Night of the Comet, Where the Lost Ones Go, Hello Debate Opponent are KajoMag’s suggestion of dramas to watch from this channel.
Plus, the best part of Mango TV Drama Channel is most of the dramas have English subtitles and made available in Malaysia.
10.Letv Official Channel
Letv Official Channel might not give you the latest dramas from China like most of the channels on this list, but there are good dramas from a couple years back that still worth watching again.
Besides, you can also watch full length Chinese movies complete with English subtitles like Suddenly Seventeen starring Wallace Huo and Eavesdropping starring one of Hong Kong legends Louis Koo.
