Viu, a leading pan-regional OTT multi-screen video service by PCCW Media Group, is the first over-the-top (OTT) platform in Singapore to air the much-awaited remake of the popular American legal drama.

Jang Dong Gun returns to the drama set after 6 years
Based on the hit American drama series, the 16-episode Korean remake of Suits stars top veteran actor Jang Dong Gun, whose role in the drama marks his comeback to the small screen after six years. Cast opposite him is idol-turned-actor, Park Hyung Sik, whose debut in Strong Woman Do Bong Soon catapulted him to fame; Suits marks his second leading role.

The legal drama revolves around Choi Kang Seok (Jang Dong Gun), a high-flying lawyer who works at a top law firm in South Korea, while Go Yeon Woo (Park Hyung Sik) is a genius with a photographic memory with no college degree or a license to practice law, but Kang Seok hires Yeon Woo as a law associate anyway. Fans can look forward to the chemistry between the seasoned actor and the rising star as the duo tackles court cases while maintaining a secret that could ruin their reputations.
