Tickets to the Korean movie “Seobok,” starring Gong Yoo and Park Bo-gum, are already available for purchase at the iWantTFC website, the ABS-CBN-owned streaming platform announced on Monday.

“Seobok” is said to be the first Korean film to tackle the topic of human cloning. Park Bo-gum is Seobok, the first human clone. Gong Yoo is Ki-hun, a former intelligence agent whose secret mission is to safely transfer Seobok.

For P250, iWantTFC viewers in the Philippines may stream “Seobok” for 48 hours starting April 15. You may rent “Seobok” on iWantTFC, formerly known in the Philippines as iWant, through this link: http://bit.ly/TWiWantTFCSeobok.

iWantTFC subscribers may watch “Seobok” on their mobile phones, laptop or desktop computers, and Android televisions. It also has a Roku channel, and its app allows casting to television via Google Chromecast or Apple Airplay.

Watch ‘Seobok’ via Viva’s Vivamax

With the COVID-19 pandemic still raging in the country, cinemas remain closed in the Philippines. Thus, despite the earlier announcement of VIVA International Pictures, the film’s distributor in the Philippines, that “Seobok” would be released in cinemas, fans can only stream it online for now.

“Seobok” will also be available on Vivamax, Viva’s own streaming app. Monthly subscription to Vivamax costs only P149. However, some users report they are unable to cast its content to TV.

We bought a Vivamax voucher on Shopee to try it out. Our attempts to cast or mirror Vivamax content from our iPhone to our LG webOS television failed. We were however able to cast from our Chrome browser to our TV via Chromecast.

If you want to watch “Seobok” on your mobile phone or laptop computer, we recommend Vivamax. Visit web.vivamax.net to subscribe. You may repeatedly watch “Seobok” and other movies and series during the entire duration of your subscription.
