Ahead of the release of its Philippine adaptation, the K-drama “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” got a Tagalog-dubbed version on Viu Philippines.

“What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim,” which aired on tvN in 2018, stars Park Seo-joon and Park Min-young. It is based on a 2013 novel by Jung Kyung-yoon, which was turned into a webtoon in 2015.

Park Seo-joon plays the role of Lee Young-joon, a competent and handsome but narcissistic vice chairman of a major corporation. His secretary Kim Min-so, played by Park Min-young, shocks him when she announces her resignation. He tries to convince his secretary, who has been working with him for nine years, to change her mind.

In a post on Twitter, Viu Philippines shared a teaser of the Tagalog-dubbed version of “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim.”

All episodes of the Tagalog-dubbed “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” are available to watch for free on the Viu app. Premium users may watch ad-free and in higher resolution.
