DramaFever Original Co-Production MY SECRET ROMANCE Premieres 4/17
DramaFever, the leading online destination for international television shows, movies and concerts, has announced that original series, My Secret Romance, will premiere on April 17 in the U.S. on DramaFever and in South Korea on cable channel OCN. This marks the first time that DramaFever will be streaming episodes in the Americas simultaneously with their overseas telecasts. New episodes are 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 (KOCCA) accounts for three times as many U.S. K-drama viewers than its closest competitor.
This 12-episode x 40-minute series stars Sung Hoon (Oh My Venus, Noble, My Love) and Song Ji Eun (member of the K-pop group Secret) as Jin Wook and Yoo Mi, who - in a world of fleeting connections - begin their destiny with a brief but passionate romance. They meet again three years later, kicking off a rollercoaster of a relationship that will keep them on their toes as they fall in love.
"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."
Shot this winter in Jeju Island and Seoul, it is a co-production with Godin Media, and the first series for which DramaFever Original Productions is credited as exclusive global distributor.
