Dear drama fans–here’s a quick update for you:
Last month, we started a project to overhaul the site with the intention to improve it in every way possible. Unfortunately, we experienced financial difficulties during the transition and currently having a major financial deficit at the moment. Needless to say, the result is nowhere near what we originally envisioned. We had to make alternative changes that we ourselves didn’t like, but had to in order to keep the site alive.
DramaFire is still operational for now, but we must find a solution to our current financial deficit for running this site. We can easily think of at least 10+ major drama sites that have shut down mostly due to financial reasons in the past few years alone. It’s a tough circumstance due to all the costs. Completing the overhaul improvement project is now a long shot, because we must first deal with just keeping the site alive first. We’ll keep you up to date on what happens; check back soon.
We apologize for having promised so much, yet we were not able to deliver much. We hope you understand that we only had the best intentions, but things changed due to the tough financial circumstance we’re encountering. Thank you.

Hello drama fans!
We want to keep you up to date on a few big changes that are coming to DramaFire.
First, as you have noticed, the Disqus commenting section is no longer up. This is most likely not a permanent thing and Disqus will most likely return to DramaFire after we work out some technical difficulties that we are experiencing with their system currently. So for the time being, please just use the very basic comment system so that at least you can express your thoughts about the drama episode you’ve seen.
Secondly, you may or may not notice that DramaFire is a little slower now (we actually never claimed to be fast–fans just told us so) when it comes time to update new episodes or put up new series. This is because we are busy working on many changes and projects for DramaFire. Once this transition period finishes, you can expect much, much more content and lightning speed updates. All old series (old series we don’t currently have will get added too) will be fixed and A LOT of new series will be added so you can expect to have A LOT to watch soon!
We currently have 3 video sources per page. The reason for this is that sometimes, if one source is down or is too slow, you still have 2 others to use; furthermore, the computer/phone/tablet you use might not all be compatible with a single source, hence, we have 3. We are working to transition to a single powerful source (one video player) per page that will be compatible with 99% of all devices you use. Most importantly, it will come from servers from many different cities in the world so your loading time will be faster.
ALSO, we are considering putting up a forum on the site. Please let us know (Contact Us) if this is a good idea or if no one will use it. Will you use it? There are many benefits a forum can provide that a comment section cannot, but there are drawbacks too like if no one uses it then it’s a waste.
And please feel free to Contact Us if you have any suggestions to help improve DramaFire. We get a lot of messages, and currently very busy, but we will find time to read and consider all your thoughts.
We think these are major improvements that will give you a better experience watching dramas with DramaFire! Expect a better DramaFire very soon and until then, thank you for your continued patience.

DramaFire is now fully back up to 100% health! We experienced major unforeseen problems during the upgrade process; however, everything is fine now. We apologize for being down for the past weeks (that was definitely not anticipated). Thank you for coming back and please enjoy all the new dramas!

We will be upgrading our servers, connection speed, and beef up security for the site in the upcoming days. The site will temporarily be down off and on for a short time during this process. Please bare with the process. Gamsahabnida!

Thanks for you patience. Your comments, requests, praises, and complaints are all heard and noted. Dramafire is being improved. All the old completed series will eventually get faster video sources.
For computer/laptop users, we recommend using Google Chrome browser because it has most plugins already built-in. For other browsers, you might have to add Adobe Flash (free from adobe.com).
Also, if you ever get a loading error, please refresh the page first to see if that will solve the problem before reporting to us. Thank you.
