Get Yourself Spooked With These Hair-raising Korean Titles on Viu This Halloween ~

By  | 

In this season, we say best witches to you with Viu ~

This October, Viu brings you the best in entertainment with titles that will keep you at the edge of your seats. From mysterious encounters to supernatural experiences, you can definitely expect lots of thrills and chills on Viu.

Viu continues its supernatural streak with Korean drama Beauty Inside (Lee Min Ki, Seo Hyun Jin) where appearances are not what they seem to be. In this JTBC drama, Seo Hyun Jin takes on the role of a top actress who leads a different life at least once a week when her appearance changes due to a supernatural phenomenon. Meanwhile, horror aficionados can “tag along” to explore the remains of one of Korea’s top haunted spots in Korean movie Gonjiam: Haunted Asylum (Oh Ah Yeon, Park Ji Hyun and Wi Ha Jun) and satisfy your appetite for the paranormal.

Spooky shows aside, melodramas and romance still take centre stage this fall. Imagine what life could be like if you had the opportunity to revisit your past to save a loved one? In Korean movie Will You Be There (Byun Yo Han, Chae Seo Jin, Kim Yoon Seok), the characters travel through time to uncover the reasons to why some life events are destined to take place. Finally, for those in search of love, perhaps you can try your luck at the airport just like the characters in Fox Bride Star (Chae Soo Bin, Lee Je Hoon). Who knows, you might just cross paths with your one true love there.
