K-drama classic “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo,” and last year’s fantasy series “Tale of the Nine-Tailed” are Viu Philippines’ latest Tagalog-dubbed South Korean dramas.

Tagalized versions of these Hallyu favorites started streaming on Viu last March 12.

Tagalog-Dubbed ‘Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo’

“Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” first aired in Korea 2016. It follows a modern-day woman who gets transported back in time to the Goryeo era. She wakes up in the body of a noble lady and gets entangled in a love triangle between two princes.

In this series, IU plays the role of Go Ha-jin of the present time and Lady Hae Soo of Goryeo. Lee Joon-gi is 4th Prince Wang Soo, and Kang Ha-neul is 8th Prince Wang Wook.

Viewers must find out who Hae Soo ends up with and if her actions can alter history.

‘Tale of the Nine-Tailed’ Also Tagalog-Dubbed

Meanwhile, “Tale of the Nine-Tailed,” tells the story of a gumiho or nine-tailed fox – a mythical creature in Korean folklore – who fell in love with a human. He finds the reincarnation of his loved one, and together they face a powerful mythical serpent.

Lee Dong-wook plays the title role of gumiho Lee Yeon, while Jo Bo-ah is Nam Ji-ah, the reincarnation of his first love. Kim Bum, who became popular after “Boys Over Flowers,” returns to K-drama as Lee Rang, Yeon’s clingy half-brother.

Kim Yong-ji joins the cast of this entertaining fantasy K-drama as Ki Yoo-ri, Rang’s partner-in-crime. Hwang Hee is Yeon’s friend Koo Shin-joo, and Lee Tae-ri portrays the villain imoogi.
