Gripping twists and turns at every corner
For a thrilling Saturday night activity with friends, catch these jaw-dropping dramas with surprises at every corner! The highly anticipated legal drama The Devil Judge is launching on July 4, just 5 hours after it airs in Korea. Fans of Ji Sung who are anxiously awaiting his return can catch him starring as Kang Yo Han, the titular Devil Judge. Also starring Jin Young of Got7, the drama is set in dystopian present-day Korean Society where the courtroom is run like a reality show – but an assistant judge fights back to find the truth.
The tension continues with Voice 4, the fourth and latest season which just launched on June 18. It follows a team racing against time to save the victims of real-time incidents from phone calls received from the emergency call center. Starring heavyweight actor and actress Song Seung Hoon and Lee Ha Na, this is a show not to be missed.
Finally, if you haven’t already started, keep up with the plot twists in hit melodrama The Penthouse 3, where the wealthy families of Hera Palace will stop at nothing to get what they want. What’s more, to play on the unpredictable twists in each episode, Viu is also hosting a 10-week long competition – The Penthouse 3: Plot The Twist. Head to @viusg’s social media pages every Thursday and guess what will happen in the following week’s episode for a chance to win attractive prizes like $50 CapitaLand vouchers. If you stay tuned every week, you might just clinch the ultimate prize of a night at St. Regis’s presidential suite that is worth more than $10,000!
Mood boosters to lighten the mood
Need some cheering up? These shows are a sure-fire way to lift your spirits and brighten your day! Start with Police University, a new rom-com that will be streaming first on Viu from August 10. It stars veteran actor Cha Tae Hyun as Yoo Dong Man, a seasoned detective and teaching professor at the police academy who meets new recruits from all walks of life, including the intelligent hacker Sun Ho and righteous Kang Hee.
If you’re in the mood for more lighthearted romance, historical Chinese rom-com Truth or Dare will be right up your alley. In the case of mistaken identities, the illiterate Wan Zi is mistaken as a princess and betrothed to master Mei, while the real princess is mistaken by a young bandit to be his new wife.
Entertaining variety shows for never-ending laughs
