Adding DRL function to existing OEM LED accent strip

My Kia Soul OEM headlights are equipped with LED accent lighting on top of the headlight. They currently only turn on with the parking lights and low/high beams, but I was wondering if it would be an easy task to have them as DRLs. That way it would save the tail lights and parking lights from coming on if I want to run them independently. Other than personal preference and wearing out the the LEDs faster, would there be any negatives to doing this?
