Starring legendary “Old Boy” actor Choi Minsik and “My Liberation Notes” star Sohn Seokgu, the series is directed by the award-winning Kang Yoonseong.

On December 21, step into the shoes of a man who has repeatedly hit rock bottom and is determined to reclaim his life, no matter the cost, when Big Bet debuts globally only on Disney+ Hotstar.

Starring the legendary Choi Minsik (Old Boy, The Admiral: Roaring Currents, New World) in his first appearance in a drama series in over 26 years, Big Bet tells the unforgettable tale of a man, Cha Moosik, who, after a hard time in life, builds himself up from nothing to become a casino mogul in the Philippines. As the story progresses, Cha once again finds himself at rock bottom when he is investigated as part of a murder case. Determined not to let life beat him down yet again, Cha will risk everything he has, including his own life, to get himself back in the game.

Big Bet also stars Sohn Seokgu, a versatile genre-spanning actor who previously starred in My Liberation Notes, Romance Without Love, and D.P., and who also recently made his directorial debut in Unframed; as well as Lee Donghwi, who brought his larger-than-life presence to Extreme Job, New Year Blues, Method Acting, and the widely popular Reply 1988; and Heo Sungtae who quickly became a fan favorite last year with his work in Squid Game, and later with Adamas and Hunt.

At the helm of Big Bet is Kang Yoonseong, the winner of the Best New Director at the 54th Baeksang Arts Awards and the 23rd Chunsa Film Art Awards. With The Outlaws, a Korean box-office hit praised for its high-voltage action sequences and tense narrative that garnered over 6.88 million admissions following its 2017 opening, under his belt, Kang’s distinctively powerful and spectacular directorial vision is yet another feature that makes Big Bet worthy of the hype.  

Enjoy Big Bet this December 21, exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar.

DISNEY+ HOTSTAR’S THE ZONE: SURVIVAL MISSION MOMENTS THAT HAS US ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING | Check out the funniest moments that will have you clicking replay over and over again

If you’re a fan of Korean variety shows, you’re probably familiar with the comedic antics of Lee Kwangsoo and Yoo Jae Seok. But when Girl’s Generation member Kwon Yuri jons them, the trio becomes an unstoppable force that’s bound to have you rolling on the floor laughing.

The Zone: Survival Mission is the gift that keeps on giving. From the first episode to the upcoming finale, the series is chock-full of hilarious scenes. However, with much difficulty, we’ve managed to narrow down our top 5 favourite moments of the show.

1. Lee Kwangsoo’s Sticky Situation

The first episode of The Zone: Survival Mission truly sets the tone for the rest of the series. As if having to avoid being soaking wet in freezing cold weather and having to traipse through hurdles wasn’t hard enough, Lee Kwangsoo ups the ante by rolling on slippery glue and struggling to move, which turns out to be the highlight of the episode. From getting stuck on toilet seats to being plastered with ping pong balls, watching Lee Kwangsoo struggle to make it through the episode is slapstick comedy at its finest.

2. Strong, Independent Men Woman

Kwangsoo and Jae Seok’s attempts at portraying a strong masculine image are totally shattered in this series. Not a single episode goes by without the boys calling for “Yuri-ah” to get them out of a difficult situation. Whether it’s carrying a block of ice or staving off a ghost,The Zone: Survival Mission would’ve ended a lot more abruptly without Kwon Yuri.

3. The Pen is Mightier Than the Sword

Kwon Yuri’s determination to get through each survival mission successfully is commendable, especially when she is stuck with a duo who are ready to quit at any moment. As she tries to motivate her teammates, her targeted and witty quips never fail to hit their mark against her less-than-motivated counterparts. Her unexpected jabs and deadpan expressions constantly stun the duo and leave the audience thoroughly entertained.

4. Zombies with Standards

Getting eaten by a zombie is probably everyone’s worst nightmare but for Kwangsoo and Jae Seok being rejected was an even worse prospect. After getting transported back in time to a village full of the undead, they were forced to hold out against the zombies. However, Kwangsoo and Jae Seok soon realised that they were never in trouble as they ironically didn’t meet the zombie’s beauty standards. The prey became the predator as the male duo persistently tried to get the zombies to bite them.

5. The Entirety of Episode 4

As if having to quarantine isn’t hard enough, try having to isolate yourself in a haunted house. When the trio arrived at a quaint-looking house they immediately expected an easy mission, but they soon discovered that many spooky surprises awaited them. From Kwangsoo grabbing onto Yuri’s legs to hearing grown men scream every two minutes, the entire Survival Zone episode will have you in stitches.

Whether you enjoy watching reality shows or you’re just in the mood for a laugh, The Zone: Survival Mission is definitely the series to catch. With the finale premiering this week, watch all the episodes streaming on Disney+ Hotstar here.

Getting life lessons from a second-rate lawyer whose world was turned upside down in a single day may be unorthodox but as Park Chung-Ho (Lee Jong-suk)’s life will show you, you’ll definitely come out on top.

Here are five life lessons from Big Mouth that could save you from a lifetime of pain.

1. Marry your best friend

The person you marry can make or break your life. Chung-Ho and Mi-ho are not the perfect on-screen couple that you see in romance movies, but their relationship is nothing but resilient. Though Mi-ho has to constantly deal with the consequences of her husband’s overly strong ambition, she never relinquishes her trust in him. Even when the entire country believed Chung-Ho was a villain, Mi-Ho continued to fight by his side to prove his innocence. So, marrying your best friend could literally save your life.

2. Fake it till you make it

Nothing beats persistence when you’re stuck in a sticky situation. So the next time you’re struggling at something, keep trying and you’ll eventually succeed. For Chung-Ho, going from Big Mouth to Big Mouse wasn’t easy but it was the only choice he had. struggling to adapt to life in prison, Chung-Ho finally makes the life-saving decision to put on the mask of Big Mouse. Despite some expected stumbles, he eventually continues to gain influence within the prison with his new persona.

3. There's nothing wrong with accepting help

Asking for help can be tough, especially when you’re surrounded by people who expect something in  return. Hye-Jin (Hong Ji-Hee), doesn’t have anyone to turn to when she’s in trouble because of her corrupt husband. Even when others offered a way out, Hye-Jin was reluctant to accept their help. However,  her life took a turn for the better when finally took the leap and accepted their help.

4. With a good team, you can save a nation

Nothing beats a squad you can rely on. From bad breakups to fighting a corrupt system, there’s nothing you can’t overcome without an amazing support system. Despite the many attacks and accusations they faced, Chung-Ho always had his squad (wife, his father-in-law, and his best friend) by his side. Be it a tough legal case or mistaken identity as a notorious criminal, they were always ready to put themselves in danger to save him.

5. Don't underestimate your opponents

A lesson both viewers and Chung-Ho can learn is to never underestimate your enemy. When Chung-Ho took on the persona of Big Mouse, he also falsely assumed the notorious swindler’s confidence, which was a mistake that could have cost him his life. As he continues his attempts to uncover the true face behind Big Mouse, his lofty ambitions and false bravado may prove to be his downfall.

Well, one thing is for sure – nothing beats a good old-fashioned takedown. Chung-Ho’s fight continues in the Big Mouth season finale on September 16, streaming exclusively on Disney+ Hotstar here.

Bulan lepas dapat parcel pink dari Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia tapi bulan ni baru nak cerita sebab baru settle makan semua sajian manis yang bertemakan drama Korea. Kenapa Disney+ bagi parcel ni? Sebab Disney+ nak berkongsi kegembiraan bila streaming platform yang baru datang ke Malaysia ni dah berjaya dapattempat di hati peminat drama Korea. 

Sebelum ni Disney+ Hotstar bawa Snowdrop dan Soundtrack No. 1 untuk tayangan eksklusif dan kedua-dua drama mendapat sambutan yang menggalakkan. Snowdrop sampai sekarang masih lagi trending. Jadi Disney+ Hotstar bawa masuk lebih banyak drama Korea untuk peminat drama Korea. Drama-drama tersebut mempunyai pelbagai genre dan barisan pelakon hebat juga. 

Drama tersebut ialah Doctor Lawyer, Bloody Heart, Link : Eat, Love, Kill, Kiss Sixth Sense dan Going to you at the Speed of 493KM/H. 

1. Bloody Heart 

Raja yang memimpikan bentuk pemerintahan monarki sepenuhnya agar dapat bertahan hidup, Lee Tae (Lee Joon) percaya bahwa segala cara yang diambil pemimpin negara adalah mutlak dan dibenarkan. Ia juga tidak ragu untuk mengambil alternatif yang melanggar undang-undang atau cara yang tidak jujur. Lee Tae harus meninggalkan wanita yang dicintainya (Kang Han Na) untuk bertahan dalam hidup. Drama fiksyen sejarah ini mempunyai 16 episod. 

2. Doctor Lawyer

Mengisahkan tentang seorang ahli bedah ternama Korea yang dipenjarakan dan hilang lesen perubatan kerana pesakitnya meninggal dunia tanpa diduga. Peristiwa tersebut membuatkan Han Yi Han (So Ji Sub) memilih bidang yang baru. Dari bidang pengacaraan, dia dapat kekuatan untuk bela diri lantas bekerjasama dengan kekasih pesakitnya, Geum Seok Young (Im Soo Hyang). 

3. Link : Eat, Love, Kill

Tukang masak terkenal, Eun Gye Hoon (Yee Jin Goo) mendirikan sebuah restoran yang mana restoran tersebut merupakan titik lokasi hilangnya saudara kembar dia pada 20 tahun yang lalu. Eun mendirikan restoran tersebut dengan harapan jika memang saudara kembarnya masih hidup, dia mempunyai tempat lokasi terakhir untuk kembali. 

Anehnya, dia mendapati dirinya mengalami emosi secara spontan menangis dan ketawa, dan ternyata ia adalah emosi seorang wanita bernama Noh Da Hyun (Moon Ga Young).

4. Kiss Sixth Sense

Drama yang diadaptasikan dari webtoon ini menceritakan kemampuan Hong Ye Sul (Seo Ji Hye) yang dapat melihat masa depan melalui sebuah ciuman. Cha Min Hoo (Yoon Kye Sang) pula seorang bos yang gila kerja dan berhati batu. Meskipun begitu, Cha Min Hoo memiliki instinct 10 kali ganda lebih tajam dari orang sekeliling. Deria keenam dia juga merupakan faktor kejayaan utama dalam kerjaya. 

5. Going to you at the Speed of 493KM/H 

Kisah cinta antara pemain badminton Park Tae-yang (Park Ju-hyun) dan Park Tae-joon (Chae Jong-hyeop) di dalam acara beregu. Tae-yang kembali ke Seoul untuk memulakan semula pengembaraannya dalam suka badminton kerana beliau pernah digelar sebagai ‘si genius badminton’ dan merupakan calon sukan olimpik. Namun dia terpaksa berhenti kerana dikatakan memberi rasuah kepada pegawai pertandingan.

Antara drama yang nampak menarik mesti lah Doctor Lawyer dengan Link : Eat, Love, Kill sebab I suka genre mystery, crime atau thriller. Drama yang lain pun menarik jugak sebab jalan cerita ada keunikan tersendiri. Tersengih lebar masa baca kad ucapan dari Disney+ Hotstar ni sebab kreatif betul perkenalkan semua sajian pemanis dalam kotak merah tu. Happy bila buka kotak sebab cantik. 

Setiap dessert yang ada ni melambangkan setiap drama yang ditayangkan dalam Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia. Nampak tak kek vanilla ada lambang bulu tangkis tu? Haa yang tu haruslah untuk drama Going to you at the Speed of 493KM/H. Cantik kan? 

Dessert yang paling sedap sekali, kek berry dari drama Bloody Heart. Kek dia dah la cantik siap dengan kelopak bunga sebagai penyeri, rasa dia pun sedap. Tak puas makan sebab kecil je saiz dia. Yang Kiss Sixth Sense tu pun sedap jugak sebab I suka makan kacang merah. Makan sejuk-sejuk memang sedap!

Terima kasih Disney+ Hotstar Malaysia sebab berkongsi kegembiraan dengan I jugak. Makin bertambah semangat nak layan semua drama ni dekat Disney+ :)
