Viu is a video-streaming app designed to cater to Korean entertainment fans in the Asia Pacific region. It carries an impressive library of popular Korean dramas, music, and shows that are made available within a day of their original telecast. Fans no longer need to sift through tons of unverified sources online because it’s cheap, accessible, and has professional subtitles in English.
What are you watching on Viu? Here are five shows we think you must watch!
The drama is a whirlwind of gaudy outfits and 80s charms that revolves around five childhood friends who live in the same neighborhood. Doesn’t sound like much, but it knows just how to tug at your heartstrings because it was actually one of the top-rated Korean series in 2016!
If you liked “Train To Busan”, you’d probably like this too. The lead actress is an immortal Goblin who experiences her fair share of heartbreak and love. It has a hilarious twist to it, so you can imagine it’s going to be quite wonderful.
Lovely Love Lie
An exciting and fast-paced show about the difficulties in starting up a career in the Korean music industry and the drawbacks at the height of success. The lovely thing about this drama is that its main cast is actually made up of real artists and musicians who can play and sing. How about that for realism?
This hilarious variety show closely resembles a hybrid of Amazing Race with gags thrown in for added measure. They incorporate a lot of comedic elements and cast a lot of well known Korean celebrities. It’s hard to put a finger on it, but you’ve gotta watch one episode to know what I’m talking about.
We Got Married
I guess we can pass this off as a reality show because you get to see your favorite Korean celebrities get paired up with other equally successful Asian personalities and live like married couples for a year! The result is hysterical and sometimes just downright cute.
