“Scarlet Heart: Goryeo” To Premiere In South East Asia At Same Time As Korea

Great news for K-drama fans in South East Asia! “Scarlet Heart: Goryeo,” the highly anticipated South Korean remake of the similarly titled Chinese series is set to premiere on August 29, every Monday and Tuesday at 9 p.m. / 8 p.m. JKT, first and exclusively on cable channel ONE.

The Korean entertainment channel which is available in Australia, Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore will be the first regional television channel in Southeast Asia to air a South Korean drama series at the same time as its telecast in Korea, with subtitles in English, Chinese, and Bahasa Malay!

Headlining the series as female protagonist is IU, whose character is catapulted back in time from the modern era. In the past, she finds herself trapped within a web of political intrigue and complicated love lines involving the princes of Goryeo, who are played by Lee Joon Gi, Kang Ha Neul, Hong Jong Hyun, Ji Soo, EXO’s Baekhyun, Nam Joo Hyuk, and Yoon Sun Woo. Rookie actress Kang Han Na and Girls’ Generation’s Seo Hyun will both play princesses.
