Asian Entertainment Streaming updates – June 26, 2017
Happy Monday…as happy as any Monday can be I expect. But! Even though it is a blah Monday, I deliver you goodies in the form of new Asian movies and dramas streaming on the web! Before I get into the updates for June 26th, I hope everyone in the US is doing well with all the weather disasters going on! The tricounty area where I live actually declared a local state of emergency for the worst flooding we’ve seen in 31 years. Fields, basements, roadways…all flooded. Some bridges and roads were washed away. Craziness.
From what I can see, no new dramas coming this week, but more feature films. Coming this week (Thursday and Friday) we have Tabloid Truth starring the awesome Kim Kang Woo, Jung In Young, and Park Sung Woong. When an up-and-coming actress commits suicides after a rumor, her manager is hell-bent on a vengeful investigation to uncover the truth. If you are a person obsessed with Miss A’s Suzy, her historical movie Sound of the Flower is coming soon. The plot follows Jin Chae Seon on her journey to become Joseon’s first female pansori singer.
Want a little scifi with your beloved giraffe from Running Man? Check out Collective Invention starring Lee Kwang Soo, Park Bo Young, Lee Chun Hee, Jung In Gi, and Choi Ji Ho. The movie follows a man’s rise to stardom after a genetic splicing accident leaves him as a half man, half fish. Or how about a more feel-good sports-type movie? Jung Jae Young, Yoo Sun, and Kang Shin Il star in Glove in which a baseball star must teach baseball at a school for the hearing impaired as atonement for causing a scandal (and now I have Mighty Ducks in my head since Emilio Estevez had to coach District 5 as penalty for his drunk driving). If horror is your thing, T-ara’s Ham Eun Jung’s White is coming. A pop group’s internal strife takes a back seat to death after they perform a cursed song. Also starring Jin Se Yeon, Maydoni, Choi Ah Ra, Woo Seul Hye Hwang.
The first installment of Let’s Eat has it Netflix’s streaming library. This drama stars Lee Soo Kyung, Yoon Du Jun, Yoon So Hui, Shim Hyung Tak, and Lee Do Yeon. Lee Soo Kyung is a single woman working at a law office whose sole passion is food. She soon becomes embroiled in a serial murder case and suspects her neighbor. Plot sounds serious, but this is definitely mostly a comedy and was such a good drama. The second season, which stars Yoon Du Jun, Seo Hyun Jin, Kwon Yul, Kim Hee Won, and Hwang Seok Jeong, is also available. Du Jun is reunited with an elementary school classmate turned neighbor and they discover their relationship is still defined by good food.
After hitting Netflix, Nam Tae Hyun’s Under the Black Moonlight is now available as well on Viki.
GMM TV has added all the episodes of U-PRINCE Series Brian’s story and is now streaming Survey’s story.
