Okay Jinda, let's see your stuff.

I'm looking to get some Korean dramas on DVD (or any other playable format).

There is a site I've been using called mysoju.com but the vid links break easily and it is annoying having to cycle through the 10 minute segments.

One caveat is that I need English subtitles so I'm not sure where to get them in Korea if they exist. I'm not too worried about the region 2 settings as I can either buy a second DVD player or play them on my laptop.

I have a few hundred Korean dramas and movies on DVD, but only about 1% of them have subtitles... I think your Korean's good enough that you don't really need the crutch though!
I buy all of mine from local Korean supermarkets (Lotte, Hanareum, Grand Mart, H-Mart, Dong-A Shikpoom, etc. etc.) and I've often wondered how they can sell the copied DVDs without breaking any copyright laws, but that's another story.
The price is right so I just turn a blind eye... But I follow about 3-4 dramas daily on one of the three Korean channels provided by the local cable TV company (Cox). So I'm assuming you live somewhere where the cable doesn't offer Korean tv... Maybe it's worth it to take the drive to a large Californian city where there's a Korean supermarket, because the people working at the video counter will be able to tell you which DVDs have English subtitles (usually entire box sets).

Have you tried d-addicts.com ? There's a lot you can download there, both hard and softsubs.
