The daebak ride of this Viu Original showcased unexpected meet-ups, painful breakups, and kilig matchups.

K-dramas give us feel-good vibes, which was perfectly captured here. Several endearing and hilarious scenes are surely etched in the minds and hearts of K-drama fans as this ode to the fandom enter mid-season.

Both comforting and hooking, the happenings in the lives of 5 urbanites intertwine with their enjoyment of K-drama. May it be loss, love, or anything else in between, k-drama gives them that fighting spirit.

We have Tish (Iza Calzado), a meticulous manager who must contend with the aftermath of a years-long engagement ending up in a breakup. As she picks up the pieces of her broken heart, her past flame Jay (Jake Cuenca) returns to the country and together, they explore the possibilities of being reunited.

Shiela (Isabelle Daza), Tish's BFF, is competitive and insecure. Her dominance over her high school batch mates get challenged by the arrival of an equally stunning beautiful former school mate. Val (Sue-Ramirez), is an ambitious and goal-driven startup entrepreneur who wants to make it big concentrating on fashion and technology.

Spirited and fun-loving k-lover Frances (Gabby Padilla) introduces the gang to the world of k-drama one fateful evening. The unexpected gathering at Tish's place lead to them coming upon The Kure: k-dramas which heal the heart, mind, and soul.

Thoughts on the Mid-Series

K-love answered the narrator's query, "What is it about K-drama that draws people?"

A similarity to a K-drama of K-Love is that it connects with the spectators while showcasing life's important lessons - family, friendships, and relationships. The execution is vibrant and novel. Most of the scenes in K-love are abound with humor, which balances out the serious and emotional side of the narrative.

Being excited for upcoming episodes comes with anticipating the development of each main character's story arc. We felt like crying with Tish when she's a hot mess after getting dumped. The "marites moments" of Sheila make us giddy with laughter as she makes other people's business her own. Her poor confused husband being numbed by her energizer bunny mouth is sight to see.

This is why right off the bat, we couldn’t agree more on why the team chose the cast to play the parts. Sassy and significant subplots intersperse in K-Love, revealing each cast member’s stellar executions. Isabelle Daza as Shiela definitely provided humor and added to the delightful vibe. Gabby Padilla, in one of her biggest acting roles to date, effortlessly showed that she’s a star to watch out for. We can’t leave out Iza Calzado and oppa material Jake Cuenca’s stunning performances and undeniable chemistry on screen, leaving us wanting more. Sue Ramirez gives us a breath of fresh air after her heavy role in The Broken Marriage Vow.

Admirably, the series is serving us quite an age range in terms of characters. Having twenty-somethings to past sixty-somethings makes K-Love sane in tackling the realities that they are facing. We knew that their stories would hit home, just like how the contrast of Tish’s parents’ marriage and Jay's parents symbolises that not all endings are happy. It’s also worth noting how Shiela struggles to get closer to her Gen Z daughter, to the point that she’s also on TikTok!

K-Love incorporates a dose of meaningful messages and moments not just for the young ones, but for all ages without losing focus on the most essential thing in the story: the characters’ friendships. From letting go to kilig second chances and a whole lot of funny moments in between, they always lean onto each other as they find comfort in K-drama.

Watching K-Love have us doubled over in chuckles one second and heart-fluttered the next. Though some of the scenes depict the realities of life, the way it’s executed in the story is guaranteed to put you in a good mood.

Why should you watch K-Love?

If you are a K-drama lover, you’ll definitely relate to the fangirling moments here. Them swooning over Gong Yoo’s hot looks is such a mood! On episode 7, when the K-Squad goes to an oppa fanmeet episode is exactly us, bardagulan with other fans just to get VIP tickets to see our favorite K-drama star.

But much more than that, K-Love has all the makings of a successful show. Multifaceted characters, surprisingly finger heart-worthy love teams, a brilliant main and even supporting cast, and an engrossing script by acclaimed writers. Put these all together and the screen fills up with magic. You wouldn’t want to miss out on that, right?

What we also love about K-Love is how visually immersive the experience is. From the glossy shots of an outstanding production composed by award-winning crew to the fashion Pam Quinones brings to the table, every scene is a delight to the viewers reminiscent of K-drama.

The story is very Filipino, but told in a really stylish way. Veering away from your usual Filipino TV seryes, there are no kabits, no sampalans, just a light take on an exciting plot about Filipino families and modern-day relationships.


K-Love’s faster paced storytelling at 25 minutes per episode will also get a nod from TikTok and IG Reels natives, the Gen Zs. But despite the shorter format, K-Love is made for a very compelling watch to look forward to every Friday, one that Filipinos of all ages will love. No wonder it’s currently the #1 most-viewed series on the Viu PH platform.

Root for the K-Squad and their journey to navigate life with K-Drama. Tune in to the next episode of K-Love, streaming exclusively on Viu!
