[Coverage] “Dramaworld” Premieres in Los Angeles!

Hey, everyone! Viki’s first original series, Dramaworld, premiered this past weekend at the Ace Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles and I won a pair of tickets to see the stars up close!

Dramaworld seeks to bridge gaps between Western and Korean culture in a way that is both relatable and appealing to avid K-Drama fans from around the world. The plot focuses around Claire (played by Liv Hewson), a huge K-Drama fan from the U.S. who unexpectedly gets transported into her favorite drama series and becomes involved in the story. The series is directed by Chris Martin, who has worked in Korea for many years.

Not only does Dramaworld feature Western actors and actresses, but also Korean ones. With cameo appearances from Super Junior’s Choi Siwon to famous actress Han Jimin, this is a comedic series you won’t want to miss out on, especially if you’re a huge fan of Korean dramas.

At the premiere, I was able to catch a glimpse of all of the cast members in a casual setting and on the Red Carpet. Unfortunately, one of the main actors, Justin Chon (who plays Seth), was unable to attend, but the other cast members were present to share their thoughts about the production process. Yang Donggeun, who makes a brief appearance in the future episodes, was even present to speak at the Red Carpet.

The Red Carpet was held at 7PM and the premiere followed at 8PM, with an introduction by one of Viki’s staff members, the 3-episode premiere (which drew many laughs), and a Q&A session with the stars. Each of the episodes were very short, with a mixture of comedic moments and serious ones.

Overall, the series comes off as relatable and has a unique mixture of fantasy and reality. If you’re a K-Drama fan, you’ll be able to insert yourself into Claire’s shoes and experience the same emotions she does. Check out the series on
Viki and take a look at some of my pictures from the event!
