If you’re a fan of Japanese boy bands or Asian dramas, Drama Fever’s funding should get you eight kinds of excited. The streaming video service, based in New York, gives its customers access to foreign videos and streams them in HD. The funding is going towards securing more engineers and expanding, bringing other types of video from around the world (think telenovelas) and translating them for the English market. The funding comes from Steven Chen and Benjamin Ling (YouTube co-founder and Google Executive, respectively).
