Viu: All the K-drama you need to let you ‘chill’

“Chill” is not in the vocabulary of any K-drama fan – but we have a cool app that will make you keep your cool like never before.

There’s nothing as frustrating as finding a horribly subbed video after hours (even days) of searching. Thankfully, there’s Viu now – being a fan girl (or fan boy) has never been easier.


Viu is an over-the-top video service which brings us the latest and hottest Korean shows from SBS, KBS, MBC and CJ E&M.

Here’s what you can get from Viu:


1. Fast subs

Gone are the days where you have to hide from your newsfeed or timeline in fear of getting spoilers from the latest episode of your favorite drama – Viu releases the English subbed version 8 hours after the show is broadcasted in Korea.

2. Good quality subs

Viu is anti-migraine, which means you do not have to decipher the horribly constructed sentences that other illegal sites provide (just because they want to be the first to release). Our oppas, unnies, hyungs and noonas worked hard to make the drama great – we don’t want the storyline butchered.

3. Good quality video

For K-drama fans, visuals are very crucial. Don’t worry, Viu will not fail you. You can stream as high as 1080p. Who doesn’t want to watch Lee Min-ho in HD?

4. K-drama, music shows and variety shows


Viu doesn’t only offer K-drama. Viu offers the full Hallyu experience. Let’s say that your bias group is finally making a comeback after years of being in the dungeon, you can watch their performances on shows like SBS Inkigayo or MBC Show Champion, or maybe you’ll enjoy watching your ship in We Got Married or dads getting flustered in The Return of Superman – Viu has all that and more!

5. Download options

Let’s face it, mobile internet in the Philippines is going to take a while before it improves and the fact that you have to sit for hours in traffic with no connection is lethal. Luckily, Viu allows you to download videos on your mobile device. Download your shows before leaving your house or the office. And since Korean shows last for about an hour, you’ll be good to go with at least two downloads.


Again, our favorite artists worked so hard to make the dramas you enjoy so much. Let’s show our support and appreciation by watching them legally. Viu has the license to broadcast these shows on its platform, so every time you watch on Viu, oppa/unnie/noona/hyung gains money and can make more dramas for you to enjoy!


Yes. Free. There’s no catch, no hidden charges, no 30-day trial that thereafter requires you to pay. Nothing is in the way from you enjoying your favorite shows when you download Viu.

The holidays are here and what other perfect time is there to binge-watch your favorite shows?
