The latest and hottest Asian dramas you should be catching on Viu

Fans of the latest Chinese drama My True Friend (我的真朋友) can now catch it exclusively on Viu, where it has a same-day telecast as China.

Viu is the first over-the-top (OTT) platform in Singapore to air the hotly-anticipated show which features an ensemble cast consisting of Angelababy (杨颖), Deng Lun (邓伦) and Zhu Yilong (朱一龙).

Riding on the trend of office rom-coms, the modern-day drama revolves around two novice real estate brokers, Cheng Zhen Zhen and Shao Peng Cheng (played by Angelababy and Deng Lun respectively), who interact with different families and experience a roller-coaster ride of emotions through negotiating property deals.

Shao Peng Cheng, who conceals his true identity as a second-generation heir (富二代), engages in an unlikely, budding onscreen romance with Cheng Zhen Zhen, whose straitlaced demeanour caused initial friction between them.

My True Friend is available first on Viu from 11pm daily, same day as China, with both English and Chinese subtitles.

Viu-ers can also enjoy the same-day telecast for new Korean romantic comedy My Absolute Boyfriend, which stars Yeo Jin Goo as a warm-hearted robot who falls in love with a visual effects makeup artist (played by Girls’ Day Minah).

A remake of the original Japanese manga series Absolute Boyfriend and Taiwan’s Absolute Darling, this K-drama is picking up the pace as its charismatic leads continue to endear viewers.

It is available first on Viu every Wednesday and Thursday at 10.15pm

Anson Tan, general manager of Viu Singapore, said, “As a preeminent OTT video platform in Asia, we are delighted to broaden our extensive line-up of premium Asian titles with the addition of My True Friend, which attests to our dedication in providing our viewers with quality content that caters to varying preferences.

"With our same-day telecast advantage not only for My True Friend but also for My Absolute Boyfriend, it cements our commitment to bring the best and the latest in Asian entertainment in the shortest possible time to our viewers.”

For fans of Hong Kong police dramas, Viu has you covered too.

Starring Hong Kong actors Raymond Lam (林峯) and Charlene Choi (蔡卓妍), Police Tactical Unit (PTU: 机动部队) is the latest action-packed drama available on Viu every Thursday to Monday at 8pm.

Marking Raymond Lam’s return to the small screen and Charlene Choi’s first TV drama, the co-leaders are joined by a stellar supporting cast of Alex Fong (方中信) and Patrick Tam (谭耀文).

Viewers can journey alongside these undercover police officers as they tackle the life experiences and mental issues that come with the job.
