Korean drama fans get to watch even more Kdrama on Viu platforms this month. Check out some of the shows showing below.
1. Sky Castle
Sky Castle is a comic satirical drama about rich families living in a private luxury condo community. In this exclusive neighbourhood, only wealthy doctors and law school professors live here. The story describes the ins and outs of how upper-class parents ruthlessly secure the successes of their families and their materialistic desires.
2. Lie After Lie
Ji Eun Su (Lee Yoo Ri) is a woman who appears to have it all. Married into a super-rich family, she assumes that the rest of her life will be an easy ride.
But when her husband is murdered, she is sent to prison – with a court finding her guilty of killing her spouse. However, this will be no straightforward jail sentence: She is pregnant, and gives birth to a baby girl while still behind bars.
The child is taken away from her and given to foster parents, with her adoptive father Kang Ji Min (Yeon Jung Hoon), a kind-hearted, justice-loving journalist. When Kang Ji Min finds himself alone and taking sole care of the young girl, Ji Eun Su – now free from prison – concocts a plan that she believes will reunite her with her daughter.
She will find a way to win Kang Ji Min’s heart – and become her own daughter’s stepmother. But the truth has a way of coming out...and if it does, how will her new family react?
3. Sweet Munchies
