K – Drama Lover Gift Ideas
Viki is an online streaming platform where you can watch Kdramas as well as dramas from other countries. There is a free option but the subscription option allows you to watch with no ads as well as gain access to new shows. While there is no gift voucher option you can pay for a month or year and then cancel the subscription meaning you the subscription will last for however long you subscribed for before you cancelled.
