DramaCool Kodi add-on can neither link with Premium services like Real Debrid nor with Trakt. Moreover, it doesn’t have a Settings option. So, you can’t manage video resolution or playback settings in this add-on.
DramaCool Kodi addon is specially built for those who love watching Asian movies and shows. New content is added daily. There is a separate dedicated section for Korean Shows.
You will definitely like this add-on. But what’s missing? This add-on doesn’t have Real Debrid and Trakt support. That means you will not get HD links from premium sources & can’t sync your media. Having said that, it’s still a great addon to watch Asian content.
