It's a new month, which means it's time for new Korean shows and movies from Viu! From romantic series like When I Was The Most Beautiful to mysteries like Graceful Friends, here's what's in store for us in August:
1. Flower Of Evil (Now Streaming)
At first glance, Hee Sung (Lee Joon Gi) seems like the perfect dad and husband. But he has a dark past he's hiding even from his wife, a detective named Ji Won (Moon Chae Won). In an interview, Joon Gi shared that his character has two extremes—he can be a caring father and also a cold-hearted character.
2. Graceful Friends (August 9)
Sometimes dubbed by fans as "the new Sky Castle," Graceful Friends tells the story of a group of ~elegant~ couples in their 40s who get involved in a murder!
3. SF8 (August 15)
This show is for fans of sci-fi shows like Black Mirror, although this one probably won't be that dark. SF8 will consist of eight episodes that tell stories about artificial intelligence (AI), augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robots, and more! Siwon even stars in one ep called Love Virtually.
4. When I Was The Most Beautiful (August 27)
Ceramic artist Ye Jin (Im Soo Hyang) gets caught in a love triangle between brothers Seo Hwan (Ji Soo) and Seo Jin (Ha Seok Jin). In the teaser, we even see Seo Jin asking his younger brother point-blank if he likes Ye Jin. We're totally here for the drama!
5. Alice (August 29)
This series tells the story of "two people who transcend time and space to reunite," and it seems like they're mother and son! The leads are played by Joo Won and Kim Hee Seon.
6. Missing: The Other Side (August 30)
Here's another *mystery* drama. According to the show's Viu description: "10,000 ordinary people go missing every year, but unfortunately, they are left unnoticed by society and only a few will show any concern about this case. The drama will follow a hacker who will chase after this mystery that everyone has abandoned."
7. Mothers (Coming Soon)
Viu tells us that in this film, a woman whose husband died two years ago begins to live with his teenage son from a previous marriage.
8. Daddy You, Daughter Me (Coming Soon)
A father and daughter, who both have important life events coming up, suddenly switch bodies! This Freaky Friday-esque movie stars Yoon Je Moon and Jung So Min.
