This 2022, Viu is set to premiere the most anticipated Viu Original series, K-Love — a Filipino series made for Korean drama fans by critically acclaimed filmmakers in Hollywood. It is a story that will indeed resonate through the hearts of all the K-drama fans out there as each character’s persona slowly unfolds throughout the series.

Ian Takahashi—whose previous credits include James Gunn’s The Suicide Squad 2, Ron Howard’s Hillbilly Elegy, Harry Styles’ music video Falling, Beyonce’s Lemonade, to name a few—is the show’s cinematographer. He also won a Clio for Best Cinematography for a Kaiser Permanente advertisement for NBA Star Stephen Curry.
The team is also composed of several renowned individuals, including former Editor-in-Chief for Summit Publications Tara Sering, under whose belt produced the highest-selling number of books and novels in recent Philippine history specializing in contemporary women’s fiction; Tweet Sering, a best-selling author whose stories include Wander Girl—which was named “One of Best Philippine Books” by the Manila Critics Circle and recipient of the country’s top literary honor, the Carlos Palanca Writers Memorial Award, for advancements in Philippine Literature; Script Development Executives Lea Dizon, who was previously an executive for the Walt Disney Studios, worked with a children’s animation series Valt the Wonder Deer which played multiple seasons in the U.S. and China; Katherine Visconti, who was a writer for shows like Kiefer Sutherland’s Designated Survivor, CBS’s FBI, and NBC’s Chicago PD have lent their talents to this pioneering series. Additionally, the wardrobe will be headed by fashion stylist and current VOGUE (Philippines) fashion editor Pam Quiñones.
Rounding up K-Love’s all-star crew is director Bobby Yan, a seven-time Emmy Awards winner as Producer and Editor for MLB Tonight on MLB Network. He is also a member of the ABC Disney Directing Fellowship and worked on TV shows like Agents of Shield, Showtime’s The Chi, and The Politician. His most recent independent film, Marz, appeared in Sundance, Toronto, London, Palm Springs, and other film festivals worldwide.
