Currently Fighting for the Top Spot in Ratings: ‘While You Were Sleeping’ & ‘Hospital Ship’
‘While You Were Sleeping’ revolves around Hong Joo (Bae Suzy), who has the ability to foresee unfortunate events in her dreams, and Jung Jae Chan (Lee Jong Suk), a lawyer who unwittingly gets involved and does everything within his power to ensure that these events don’t happen. Directed by Oh Choong Wan (‘Doctors’) and written by Park Hye Ryun, the highly anticipated drama had kicked off with mainly positive feedback from critics and fans alike.

Another drama viewers can watch on Viu is none other than ‘Hospital Ship’, starring the legendary Ha Ji Won as Song Eun Jae, and CNBLUE‘s Kang Min Hyuk as Kwak Hyun. After the death of her mother, Eun Jae decides to get aboard, and work on the hospital ship. She causes a stir, as everyone question why a talented and young female surgeon who was comfortably working in a large Seoul hospital suddenly makes up her mind to work in a small hospital ship instead. On the other hand, Kwak Hyun voluntarily joined the hospital ship as part of his military service.
The show is not only interesting, but it also sheds light on the existence of mercy ships which travel around the world to provide medical services to the needy people in countries where medical resources are scarce. Follow the cast on their journey as they encounter various cases while sailing from island to island as Viu Premium subscribers can catch the latest episodes within 12 hours after its original telecast in Korea!
