iflix, the world’s leading entertainment service for emerging markets, announces the premiere of Korean breakout hit, Grand Prince, exclusively on the platform. Episodes of the series will now be available to stream and download for free only on iflix, with new episodes available weekly every Tuesday just 24 hours after the initial television broadcast by TV Chosun from Korea. 

Historical drama writer-director powerhouse of Jo Hyun Kyung (Maids) and Kim Jung Min (Gunman in Joseon, The Princess’ Man), bring together a stellar cast to tell a gripping tale of rivalry, murder and romance in the Joseon dynasty.

Acting heavyweights Joo Sang Wook and Yoon Shi Yoon (Baker King, Kim Tak Goo and The Best Hit) star as royal princes and brothers competing for power and the love of a noblewoman, played by Jin Se Yeon (The Flower in Prison). Adding to the drama, the series is based on the real-life historical conflict between two royals over the same woman. 

The Grand Prince joins iflix’s extensive library of popular and highly-acclaimed Korean dramas, including My First Love, Secret Garden, Goblin, The Legend of the Blue Sea, Descendants of the Sun, The Inheritors and many more, to make iflix the premier destination for the best of Korean entertainment. 

Country Manager for Sri Lanka Shadwell Weerasinghe commented: “We are excited to bring the latest K-drama hit, Grand Prince, to all fans in Sri Lanka for free. Express from Korea, iflix subscribers now have first access to the latest episodes of the breakout hit weekly, just 24 hours after the television broadcast in Korea. This addition is yet another attempt to satiate the unending appetite for historical Korean drama we observed around the region and to deliver the content our viewers want to watch, on their terms.” 

Now available to over one billion consumers across 25 territories throughout Asia, the Middle East and Africa, iflix has established itself as the clear market leader in video streaming. Offering consumers a vast library of top Hollywood, Asian and Middle Eastern regional, and local TV shows and movies, including many first run exclusives and award-winning programs, each subscription allows users to access the service on up to five devices, including phones, laptops, tablets, and television sets, for viewing wherever, whenever.
