Chat with the Stars

Pick up health and fitness tips from celebs (shouldn’t you be getting them from, you know, a doctor?) in this four-part chat show — the first to be simulcast on Facebook and radio — hosted by Mark Lee and LOVE 972 presenter Chua Lee Lian. Episode 1 looks at diabetes and tips for a good night’s sleep, with guests Minister of Health Ong Ye Kung and Zoe Tay.

Watch it on: LOVE 972 Facebook, Tue, 10pm

The Reunion

Lee Teng invites Hong Huifang, Lina Ng, Rayson Tan, Christopher Lee and Carol Lin to reminisce about their 1997 WWII drama The Price of Peace. What? No James Lye? Can I have a word with the commissioner?  Do you know many shows on meWATCH have ‘Reunion’ in their titles? Can we put a moratorium on that word?).

Watch it on: meWATCH & Channel 8, Tue, 8pm

Call It Love

The 16-part K-drama tells the unlikely love story between a woman (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-Joo’s Lee Sung-Kyung) and her late father’s mistress’ son (Somebody’s Kim Young-Kwang). Don’t worry: They aren’t related by blood… for now. Singapore gets name-checked in the first two episodes. Cheap thrills.

Jinny’s Kitchen

A spin-off of Youn’s Kitchen (starring Minari’s Oscar winner Youn Yuh-Jung), Jinny’s Kitchen sees a group of celebs — including actors Jung Yu-Mi, Park Seo-Jun, Choi Woo-Shik, Lee Seo-Jin and BTS’s V — running a Korean restaurant in Bacalar, Mexico.

Island, Part 2

The remaining six episodes of Season 1 will see more of Sung Joon’s Gungtan — the brother of Kim Nam-Gil’s Van — wreaking havoc on Earth. (Pssst, Sung Joon is in Call it Love as well.) So what are the other demon-slaying Van, Miho (Lee Da-Hee) and Yohan (Cha Eun-Woo) going to do about it? Watch our interview with the cast who reveal the challenges of filming on Jeju Island.

The Reluctant Traveller with Eugene Levy

Actors are like nomads— they move around, going where the productions take them. Travelling is in their DNA. So, it’s hard to believe that the Emmy-winning star of Schitt’s Creek isn’t a big fan of travelling. He’s the type who’d rather stay in the hotel and hang out by the pool than venture out and take a look-see. In this eight-part travelogue, Levy visits Finland, Costa Rica, Venice, Utah, Maldives, South Africa, Lisbon and Tokyo, and discover new things he would otherwise miss (the people, sights, food) if he’d just stayed in his room. Think An Idiot Abroad but without idiocy and grumpiness. Watch our interview with Levy:

Things then get complicated when the CIA wants a piece of the phantasm as well. Also stars Anthony Mackie, Tig Notaro, and Jennifer Coolidge.
