Riches to Rags to…?

Distribution expands for a quirky simulcast, plus several recent series are ready to marathon.

An amnesiac company heir goes from riches to rags – and gets a crash course in the concerns of everyday non-heirs – in the Korean comedy Shopping King Louie.

Seo In-guk (Squad 38) stars as the title character opposite Nam Ji-hyun (What Happens to My Family?) and a supporting cast that includes Yoon Sang-hyun (Ms. Temper and Nam Jung Gi), Im Se-mi (Goodbye Mr. Black), Kim Young-ok (Dear My Friends), Uhm Hyo-seop (Remember – A Son’s War), and more.

The series finale of Fantastic airs this weekend, and the concluding episodes for both Second to Last Love and W – Two Worlds are also newly available.

See below for more about these and other shows with licensed streams and English subtitles.
