Bigger screen, upscaled K-Drama experience




WEBTOON turned television series, ‘True Beauty.’

The New Year calls for new lists: resolutions, manifestations and K-drama marathons! Say goodbye to the neck-craning, eye-straining struggle of watching on a mobile phone when you switch to viewing on a Smart TV. Even better, Samsung has partnered with Viu to give free Viu Premium subscriptions for a year, so you can watch the latest shows ad-free on a bigger, sharper screen.

Here are just three of the trending K-Drama series on Viu to rouse your “big-screen” goals:

True Beauty
This rom-com features a high school girl who rises to stardom with her expert makeup skills. No one has ever seen her bare face, and she prefers to keep it that way — until Lee Su Ho sees her without makeup. That is just the beginning of their love story. First on Viu, this highly anticipated webtoon turned drama stars Moon Ga Young, Astro’s Cha Eun Woo and Hwang In Yeop.

Mr. Queen
A period piece with a twist, the story revolves around Jang Bong Hwan, a chef at the President’s Blue House and how his world turns upside down when his spirit somehow transcends into the body of a queen from the Joseon period.

SHIN Hye-sun plays a queen who got possed by a chef.

Cheat on Me, If You Can
Starring Go Joon and Parasite’s Cho Yeo Jeong, Cheat on Me, If You Can features an unconventional yet intense story about love, marriage and the guilt one feels from making bad decisions. With a novelist wife obsessed with the idea of killing people further thickening the plot, the turnout of events will leave the viewer on the edge of their seats.

Besides being pre-installed with the Viu app, the Samsung Crystal UHD (2020) has an upscaling feature to enhance picture-quality to the next best resolution, and customized audio modes so you won’t miss out on the details on your favorite shows. Get a free one-year Viu Premium subscription with every purchase of select Samsung TV, now with more models and sizes to choose from. Promo runs until 31 March. Visit for more details.

‘CHEAT on Me, If You Can’ is a riveting story about love, marriage and guilt.
