Aside from these original Pinoy series, iQiyi will also be streaming six original Korean series.

Crazy Love is about genius CEO No Go Jin (played by Kim Jae-uck) who after receiving a death threat pretends to lose his memory to draw out the would-be killer. He enters into a sham marriage with his secretary Lee Shin Ah (played by Krystal Jung), who has been diagnosed with a terminal illness. The show is directed by Kim Jung-Hyun.

From GTist, the same production company that made Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha and Hotel Del Luna, Us At One Point is a tragic love story about a couple trying to save each other from a curse. Their reincarnations are fated to meet but never get together.

My Oppa Is An Idol  is a comedic series showing what happens when an entertainment agency representative, a famous idol and the idol’s loyal fan start living together.

Shooting Stars tells the story of top star Gong Tae-sung (Kim Young-dae) who might have an angelic face in front of the public but he has a devilish temper off cam. He falls in love with Oh Han-byeol (Lee Sung-kyung), the Head of Publicity of his talent agency who is great at handling any crisis, but not necessarily the attention of Tae-Sung.
