The drama states the story of a judge that works in a live courtroom and makes his decision over the accused based on the votes of people. Adding to that, all the culprits or accused people are either politicians or businessmen. 

What I personally enjoyed too much about the drama was its top-notch execution of everything. From the direction, cinematography, editing, and even the cinematic visuals will stun you. The Devil Judge is a must watch on Viu, because of its innovative concept and compelling production. 

Adding to that the exceptional portrayal of characters adds to the whole thing. So, you definitely need to watch this drama that has an incredibly satisfying ending to it.

Talking about Coffee Prince, it is one of those rom-com Korean dramas that you wouldn’t like to miss out on. 

The drama starts with its focus on a girl in her mid 20s, Go Eun Chan. But she is just not some ideal girl but more like a tomboy, who lacks mannerisms. Eun Chan works to help her mother and little sister, financially. 

On the other hand, Choi Han Kyul, is a guy in his 30s and he comes with a rich inheritance, so has never really worked. But his grandmother asks him to renovate an old restaurant that helps him get triple the benefits from it. 

Further, this coffee house that he renovates is named Coffee Prince and only boys are allowed in it. So, because of Eun Chan’s boyish appearance, she manages to get a job in the coffee house and then begins a romantic comedy. 

The drama throughout is fun and you are going to enjoy this when poor girl meets a rich guy story with some weird twists.

Love in The Moonlight is another heartwarming drama that you need to watch on Viu. This is one of those dramas that has the gender bender twist to it that you are going to enjoy thoroughly. 

It is one of those historical epics set during the Joseon era of the 19th Century. It starts with our female protagonist Hong Ra On, who is pretending to be a man in order to feed herself. 

More importantly, she is trying to get rid of all the debt she is in, and although she has multiple jobs she still is not able to pay it all off. 

Then one day she crossed paths with Kim Yoon Sung, who is a nobleman, and also the crown prince Lee Young. Kim Yoon instantly finds out that Hong Ra On is not a man as she is pretending to be. 

Afterwards starts the drama that is so happening and filled with all the politics royalty used to have in those times. 

As the series moves on, Kim Yoon falls for her along with the crown prince. But the difference is just that Kim Yoon knows she is a girl and Lee Young, like the one she is pretending to be. 

You are surely going to love the drama all through the season, and I highly encourage you to go through it. 

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

  • Kang Ha Neul- Wang Wook (8th Prince)
  • Number of episodes- 20 with additional 2 special episodes
  • IMDB Rating – 8.7/10  
  • Who Will Like It – Fans of melodramatic romances

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo is such an amazing period drama that I absolutely adore. It is another of those dramas that comes with a lesson that love comes with bliss and memories and pain tag along. 

This is one of those dramas that is worth keeping in our memories forever, and the nearly perfect cast and their portrayal will make you fall in love with them head over heels. 

The drama starts with Go Ha Jin who is a woman of 25 years. She somehow gets transported to the time period of the Goryeo Dynasty in 941, and when she wakes up she is in the body of someone else. 

That someone else is a princess of a ruling dynasty, Hae Soo. So, Hae initially falls in love with the 8th prince, Wang Wook but later she develops relations with the 4th prince, Wang So. 

The story further develops and gives thrills of the courtly politics and romance brewing in those boundaries and it’s all worth watching. 

While You Were Sleeping

Cast and their characters-

  • Bae Suzy- Nam Hong Joo 
  • Jung Hae In- Han Woo Tak
  • Lee Jong Suk- Jung Jae Chan
  • Lee Sang Yeob- Lee Yoo Beom
  • Number of episodes- 16
  • IMDB Rating – 8.4/10 
  • Who Will Like It – Fans of supernatural thrillers

While You Were Sleeping is a drama filled with supernatural stuff that will leave you stunned and the portrayal of characters will make you want more of the series. 

The drama starts with Nam Hong Joo, who lives with her mother and has the supernatural ability to foretell what’s going to happen in the future. Nam Hong dreams about these future incidents and keeps a record of all of them, but somehow she is not able to change a thing of the future. 

One day she dreams of a man who the very next day moves in their neighbourhood, Jung Jae Chan. 

Then starts the drama that eventually leads on telling that these two people are fated together and are linked with their memories and dreams. 

I personally loved this drama, and the perfect blend of romance, comedy, and thriller adds to the whole. 

Adding further the characters played are spot on and you are truly going to enjoy the comedy, romance, and tension in between.

Doom At Your Service is an amazing and unique drama that ends up on a vital message that love needs utmost faith and bravery, and I can bet that you will love this show on Viu as well. 

The drama starts with Tak Dong Kyung who lives a rather ordinary life being an editor of a web novel. Her both parents were killed in an unfortunate accident and later she discovers that she is terminally ill. 

She finds out that she has Glioblastoma and has around three months to live. Also, if you think that this was the end of her bad news, here’s something more: her boyfriend turns out to be a cheater and her seniors scold her for her work. Basically, she has run into problems all at once!

Then with a wish she makes from a shooting star, she meets Myul Mang the deity of Doom and the whole story begins taking a wonderful turn.

You are certainly going to enjoy all of it on Viu!
