SINGAPORE (October 29, 2014) – Pride and Prejudice, the highly anticipated drama series premiering on the brand new Korean channel Oh!K (StarHub TV Channel 816) within 24 hours of its Korean telecast on MBC, has already taken audiences by storm. Ratings data from the first two episodes of the new show confirm that it is the leading drama series in its timeslot in Korea with almost double the ratings of its nearest competitor.

Viewers in Singapore, who can currently enjoy a free preview of Oh!K, were able to watch the first episode on the channel last night and have the second episode to look forward to tonight at 8:55pm.

Those who missed out on the first airing of Pride and Prejudice can catch repeats of both episodes back-to-back at 5:50pm on Sunday, November 1. Oh!K broadcasts the 20-episode show with the original Korean audio, as well as Chinese and English subtitles.

The highly-anticipated show features rising stars Choi Jin-hyuk and Baek Jin-hee who play two district attorneys fighting for justice in a corrupt society.

Choi Jin-hyuk, the 29-year-old actor from Mokpo, is quickly making a name for himself. His leading role in Pride and Prejudice comes on the back of his part in the highly-rated series You Are My Destiny, another MBC drama airing on Oh!K, and a remake of the 2008 Taiwanese drama, Fated to Love You. He’s joined on-set by leading lady Baek Jin-hee (Triangle, Empress Ki) and established on-air tough guy, Choi Min-Soo.

Oh!K has first pick of content from Korea’s leading broadcaster, MBC, which has a proven track record of top-rating, quality productions that have dominated TV over the past five decades. Other current hit shows that will be available on Oh!K include drama series Diary of a Night Watchman and My Blooming Days and the long-running variety show, Infinite Challenge, and the Emmy-nominated reality show Dad, Where Are We Going?.
