To make K-Drama more accessible to Filipinos, Viu Philippines last month launched Tagalog-dubbed Korean Dramas. The streaming provider said this is for Filipino fans who prefer watching the dubbed versions than reading K-drama subtitles.
Tagalog-Dubbed K-dramas Starring Seo Hyun-jin
New Tagalog-dubbed episodes of “The Beauty Inside” and “Another! Miss Oh” will be available for free every Friday and Saturday on Viu. Seo Hyun-jin stars in both of these romantic comedies.
“The Beauty Inside” is the drama adaptation of the popular movie of the same title. Top-star actress Han Se-gye (Seo Hyun-jin) suffers from a condition where her appearance changes for a week. Being a celebrity, this puts her in bad light and becomes subject to multiple bad rumors. CEO Seo Do-jae (Lee Min-ki) ends up helping her because she’s the brand endorser for their company. They eventually fall in love while trying to keep their secrets from being exposed.
“Another! Miss Oh” revolves around plain Oh Hae-young (Seo Hyun-jin) who has always been compared to a prettier Oh Hae-young. Plain Oh Hae-young falls in love with Park Do-kyung (Eric Mun of Shinhwa) who happens to be pretty Oh Hae Young’s ex-fiance.
Viu’s Tagalog-Dubbed Korean Dramas Launched in November
Viu launched its Tagalog-dubbed content in November with the release of “Emergency Couple” and “When the Weather is Fine.”
“Emergency Couple” is a romantic comedy about two exes. Years after their very messy married life that quickly ended in a divorce, Oh Jin-hee (Song Ji-hyo) and Oh Chang-min (Choi Jin-hyuk) meet again as fellow interns at a hospital emergency room. The drama stars Song Ji-hyo of “Running Man” and Choi Jin-hyuk who recently starred in “Zombie Detective.”
Meanwhile, “When the Weather is Fine” is a healing love story about a city girl who returns to the province after getting burnt out in Seoul. Back in her hometown, Mok Hae-won (Park Min-young) becomes closer to her neighbor and high school classmate. This classmate is Im Eun-seob (Seo Kang-joon), who happens to be harboring feelings for her since childhood. The drama stars Park Min-young of “What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim” and Seo Kang-joon of “Are You Human?”
Another Tagalog-dubbed K-drama that’s currently available on Viu is “W,” also known as “Two Worlds.” It is about the world of the webtoon entitled “W” and the world of its author. The webtoon’s main character, Kang Chul (Lee Jong-suk), and the author’s daughter, Oh Yeon-joo (Han Hyo-joo), fall in love as they find themselves caught in between two worlds. However, according to the details on the Viu website, this is available only until January 1, 2021.
