Kocowa, a streaming service for fans of K-drama (Korean films and TV series) and K-pop (Korean pop music and idol groups), will put rapper and singer-songwriter G-Dragon on its Thanksgiving menu.

On Thursday, November 23, the streamer will showcase exclusive excerpts from the musician’s 2017 World Tour Act III, M.O.T.T.E. (“Moment Of Truth The End”) concert in Seoul. The program will be available with English, Spanish, Portuguese and Chinese translations.

KCP Global, a joint venture of Korea’s three largest broadcasters – KBS, MBC and SBS, launched Kocowa last summer. It features programs from all three broadcasters, including TV series, variety shows and music videos. The service says programs are available in the US, with English translation, up to six hours after their Korean broadcast.

Shows include Weekly Idol, “one of the most popular K-Pop programs in Korea,” according to the streamer. Other variety programs include Show Champion, a weekly music show hosted by comedian Kim Shin-young, as well as Yo! Welcome to Korea! and Little Too Crazy.

K-drama offerings include Mad Dog, Scandal, Money Flower and Remember.

Kocowa has several subscription options. There’s an unusual 99-cent daily plan, which allows viewers full access to ad-free content for one day. A $6.99 monthly plan enables unlimited access to all content, ad-free. A $69.99 annual membership includes a discount for two months. Both the monthly and annual plans include a month-long free trial.

Finally, there’s a free option, allowing viewers who sign up as members, or anonymously, to access a limited amount of content, with ads and subtitles.

You can stream the service now at Kocowa, or via Android and iOS apps.
