After I hit publish last week, Angry Mom popped up on Viki. It doesn’t seem to be an exclusive, so there’s a chance it will be available on other services, as well. Kim Hee-seon (Faith) and Kim You-joung (The Moon Embracing the Sun) – who portray its central mother and daughter – are relatively popular among Western fans, so I was surprised it wasn’t announced as a simulcast prior to the first episode.
Taiwanese romantic comedy Murphy’s Law of Love and new Korean cable crime drama Missing Noir M also kick off their simulcasts.
Series conclusions include Hyde, Jeckyll and Me, Mischievous Kiss 2: Love in Tokyo (Itazura na Kiss 2), and Persevere Gu Hae-ra.
- Check out the Current Simulcast board for more details about – and where to watch – these shows.
- Several back-catalog Hong Kong and Japanese dramas are new to the Recent Simulcasts and Additions board: TVB hits Catch Me Now and Curse of the Royal Harem, plus Power Office Girls 2013 (Shomuni 4), Onna Nobunaga, and Ordinary Miracles from Fuji TV.
- I missed that the Japanese drama Ghostwriter wrapped up last week. (The board has been updated.)
- And there are more high-profile additions to the upcoming simulcast list at the end of the column.
