6:46:00 AM

 

ABS-CBN and Viu, PCCW’s leading pan-regional OTT video streaming service, announced today the expansion of their partnership to adapt the hit South Korean thriller drama Flower of Evil in 16 markets across Asia, the Middle East and South Africa. This much- anticipated series is the first Viu Original Adaptation from the Philippines which stars Lovi Poe and Piolo Pascual. It will stream simultaneously on Viu 48 hours before its domestic television broadcast.

ABS-CBN Entertainment’s Chief Operating Officer for Broadcast, Cory Vidanes, and Viu Philippines’ Country Manager, Arianne Kader-Cu, shared their excitement for the series, which will be Lovi’s first Kapamilya teleserye since joining ABS-CBN and Piolo’s first drama series after four years.

Ms Arianne said, “Testament to our commitment to bringing the best premium Asian entertainment to Viu-ers, we are happy to work with ABS-CBN once again to bring the Philippine adaptation of Flower of Evil to all of Viu’s 16 markets. This latest offering puts Filipino talent front and centre in the way we do storytelling, supported by a powerhouse cast and a world-class production team.”

Ms Cory said, “Our partnership with Viu on the local adaptation of Flower of Evil is a major milestone for ABS-CBN Entertainment. This is an opportunity for us to showcase excellent Filipino content and talent to the global audience in the 16 markets of Viu.”


She added, “Our local adaptation of the Korean hit love story Flower of Evil, a compelling and powerful narrative on love for family, search for truth and justice, is the unanimous choice to open our regional partnership with Viu.”

Flower of Evil is currently in production and is scheduled to premiere soon. It follows the thrilling story of a man who successfully changes his identity in order to hide his scandalous past. He then marries a police detective, who will later on be tasked with investigating an unsolved serial murder case that will lead her back to him.

The show also stars Agot Isidro, Edu Manzano, Denise Laurel, Joross Gamboa, Joem Bascon, Epy Quizon, Rita Avila, Jett Pangan, Pinky Amador, Joko Diaz and JC de Vera.

ABS-CBN and Viu’s collaboration strengthens their vision and commitment to bringing premium Asian entertainment to more viewers worldwide. The partnership kicked off early this year, with the streaming of ABS-CBN’s hit drama series The Broken Marriage Vow on Viu.

For the love of K-drama: Here’s Few Reasons why K-content Remains Irresistible

8:03:00 AM

 


Loving the KDrama? Well, who wouldn't! Filipinos are no strangers to K-dramas, with some people obsessing over them back when an entire series would need to be burned on a whopping 40 VCDs. Recently, K-drama has again taken the country by storm, with fans of all ages binge-watching shows to their heart’s content.

Today, there’s an easier way to enjoy your K-content. For your viewing pleasure, Samsung and Viu have partnered together to bring you thousands of Korean dramas, movies, and shows that you can enjoy on the big screen. Until December 31, 2021, purchase of select Samsung TVs will come with a Premium subscription to Viu.

Let’s take a look at the reasons why the love for K-dramas stayed strong through the years:

The plotlines always evolve

While classic K-drama tropes are still present and enjoyed by many, the concepts around these stories are often refreshed. Whether it’s through building a new fantasy world, featuring an obscure hobby or sport, or highlighting societal topics that weren’t openly discussed before, K-dramas always give fans new ways to explore an exciting new story, all the time.

The stars just get brighter

Korean shows always bring their ‘A’ game when it comes to their casting choices. From fresh new faces to more seasoned veterans, the acting prowess of these stars is top caliber, regardless of the type of show. You’ll never know when a new rookie actor will be your new favorite with the help of his breakthrough role in a new drama.

The visuals continue to please

Every Korean drama is a visual spectacle, from the newest and most beautifully obscure locations, hippest set designs, and on-point fashion choices - the shows have it all. Every shot features the best things the country has to offer, and also helps viewers discover new trends and places that they would want to experience for themselves as well.

While we can’t experience some of the things just yet in person, the next best thing is to watch them come alive right at our own homes, with the help of Samsung and Viu. The strategic content partnership of top Korean content providers makes Viu the one-stop service for viewers to access the widest selection of Korean titles. The Viu TV app comes pre-installed on all 2020 Samsung Smart TV models and can also be downloaded on models from 2016 to date.
