The Warner Brothers-owned streaming service, DramaFever, an online destination for international television shows and movies, has announced that it’s original series, “My Secret Romance,” will premiere in the U.S. on DramaFever and in South Korea on cable channel OCN.
This premiere marks the first time that DramaFever will be streaming episodes in the Americas simultaneously with their overseas broadcast.
The 12-episode x 40-minute series, which stars Sung Hoon (“Oh My Venus,” “Noble,” “My Love”) and Song Ji Eun (member of the K-pop group Secret), will premiere on April 17th, with new episodes set to stream every Monday and Tuesday at 9 a.m. ET on DramaFever, which according to a recent study from the South Korean government’s Korea Creative Content Agency, accounts for three times as many U.S. K-drama viewers than its closest competitor.
“Television production in Korea is consistently raising the bar and delivering stories that transcend country and language barriers,” said Suk Park, president and co-founder of DramaFever. “We look forward to bringing our insight and expertise regarding both Korean drama formats and the U.S. television market to this fast-growing genre to create significant and memorable content.”
Filmed in Jeju Island and Seoul, “My Secret Romance” is a co-production with Godin Media, and the first series for which DramaFever Original Productions is credited as exclusive global distributor.
