Fans of Chinese and Hokkien dramas and variety shows, rejoice! They can now binge-watch them for free on meWATCH.
Among the popular China dramas for your consideration include the period rom-com Fake Princess, starring Eleanor Lee as a bandit trying to save her clan who’s been captured by the government. To free them, she has to marry the Crown Prince — by masquerading as royalty.
Other highlights include the historical investigative drama Miss Truth, starring Zhou Jieqiong, formerly of L-pop groups I.O.I. and Pristin; and the contemporary romance Sweet Tai Chi, with Bi Wenjun (of Chinese boygroup NEXT) and Sun Qian.
From Taiwan, there’s the four-part, half-hour supernatural anthology 76 Bookstore — Tin Can of Fear, which was recently named Best Asian Horror Series at the inaugural ContentAsia Awards. The M18 fright-fest stars Esther Huang, Joe Zhang, and Cincin Jao.
There is also Hokkien content, such as the scare-fests King of Grains and The Crimson Curse, dropping Sept 24 and Oct 22, respectively. If horror isn’t your thing, check out Mei-Fong’s Cooking Class and Super Night Club, hosted by veteran hosts Peng Chia-Chia and Hsu Hsiao-Shun, and the talent show Top Singers.
So far there are 23 dramas and variety shows to look out for, with new titles to be added monthly.
