Unleash your inner K-fan and celebrate the unconventional and unexpected with popular favourites and new releases this October
A cinematic celebration is set to hit the screen this month as Oh!K (Astro Ch 394) hosts a full-blown 6th birthday celebration together with Malaysia’s biggest K-drama royalty!
K-Drama Kings and Queens Specials
Oh!K pays tribute to the unconventional, where beauty hides beneath the surface and unexpected situations bring unanticipated romances. Starting 10 October in She Was Pretty, the tables are turned on a pair of childhood friends. While shy Sung-joon used to rely on pretty and popular Hye-jin to rescue him from socially-awkward situations, as adults, it’s his turn to return the favour to his first love, now as a handsome young man.
Bok-ju’s intense dedication to her sport leaves little time for romance… until she meets Joon-hyung in Weightlifting Fairy, while My Dear Youth – Coffee Prince reunites the original cast from the 2009 hit. The three-part special will see sparks fly between Eun-Chan and Han-gyeol once more!
New Premieres: Weekday Treats
Weekdays bring us a slew of new releases set to entertain with their unexpected twists and turns. In Kairos, premiering 7 October, successful Im Seo-jin finds his perfect life torn apart when his daughter is kidnapped. Desperate to return to his idyllic existence, he seeks an unconventional solution – to return to the past.
For a different perspective on romance, Bad Love, which debuts 16 October, is a look at five men and women who don’t get to enjoy their happily-ever-after-after. Their common bond is an accident and love that is frowned upon by society.
Fans can also get a look at idol stars when they step out of their comfort zone in 2020 Idol Star Athletics Championships from 2 October. Far from scripted episodes, powder breaks and comfortable trailers, these celebrities get hot and bothered in a series of physically challenging matches.
