Prime Video today announced that fantasy rom-com series “HeartBeat” will be available in the Philippines starting Monday, June 26.

On that day, it will also start streaming in more than 240 countries and territories worldwide. New episodes of the 16-episode series produced by Korean broadcaster KBS will be available weekly on Mondays and Tuesdays.

Multitalented actor and artist Ok Taec-yeon, who previously starred in “Let’s Fight Ghost,” “Vincenzo,” and “Blind,” stars in “HeartBeat.” In the story, a vampire who desires to experience love meets a woman who doesn’t have time for romance.

Vampire wants to experience love

With an unwavering desire to become human and experience love, Seon U-hyeol sleeps in a coffin for 100 years. However, Joo In-hae, a cold-blooded-yet-mesmerizing woman played by Won Ji-an, interrupts his slumber. Having to fend for herself at an early age, she developed defense mechanisms and became hard and resilient. Her encounter with the mysterious man asleep in the coffin slowly loosens her inhibitions. As a result, an unexpected relationship between Seon U-hyeol and Joo In-hae ensues. Won Ji-an has starred in “Hope or Dope,” “If You Wish Upon Me,” and “D.P.”

“We’re absolutely delighted to be in partnership with one of Korea’s leading national broadcasters,” said David Simonsen, director of Prime Video, Southeast Asia. “The opportunity to work with creators from KBS marks a significant milestone for us, and we’re excited that a title such as ‘HeartBeat,’ which spans multiple genres, will satisfy our audiences’ thirst for Korean content of the highest caliber. This announcement truly reaffirms our commitment to expanding our ever-growing slate of premium Korean titles on Prime Video.”

“It is with great pleasure to embark on this relationship with Prime Video, with its presence across the globe,” said Lee Hyun-suk, the director of “HeartBeat.” “‘HeartBeat’ explores vampires who are completely drained by humans. What would the lives of Korean vampires be like in the 21st century? This story, born from such an imagination, is expected to garner amusement, laughter, and touch the audience’s hearts. Stay tuned to see how the love between Seon U-hyeol, a vampire yearning to become human, and Joo In-hae, who is cold-blooded like a vampire, unfolds within unexpected plot twists.”
