In case you haven’t been paying attention to your Disney+ recommendations, there’s a particularly, um, moving piece of Korean Original series that’s sweeping across the platform. It’s called Moving and it’s about superheroes — well, sort of. We’re currently in the middle of binge-watching the series and not only is it keeping the people at UnGeek highly entertained, it’s sweeping the world by storm as it has become the most watched Korean Original Series in Disney+ and Hulu. The Moving craze has taken over the US as well as across the APAC region including Korea, Japan, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Southeast Asia (such as the Philippines).
“The global consumer response towards the first 11 episodes of Moving has exceeded our expectations,” said Carol Choi, Executive Vice President of Original Content Strategy, The Walt Disney Company APAC. “From the U.S. to all across APAC, it is fast becoming a breakout hit with its captivating storyline, world-class cast and incredible post-production effects — all coming together to deliver exceptional storytelling.”
Starring some of the biggest names in the Korean entertainment industry, including Ryu Seungryong, Han Hyojoo and Zo Insung in his long-awaited return to a drama series, Moving tells the story of a group of retired South Korean super-powered spies working to protect their equally children from harm and exploitation at the hands of malicious government agencies. Initially recruited because of their extraordinary abilities including flight, instant healing and enhanced senses, the spies disappeared without a trace after being tasked with carrying out increasingly dubious missions. Now with their children exhibiting similar abilities and a dangerous assassin rapidly picking off super-powered individuals, the parents must leave their peaceful lives behind to become the “monsters” they once were.
Hailed as “proving the power of quality K-content” by KBS Media, dubbed “a gripping new K-drama action series” by Newsweek, “a superhero story with an emotional core” by Forbes, and a “completely different and new hero story” by Max Movie, the first 11 episodes of Moving are available for audiences to enjoy today. Two new episodes are set to release every Wednesday, with a three-part series finale slated for September 20.
Moving joins a rapidly expanding library of Korean content now available on Disney+, including the Blue Dragon Series Award-winning Big Bet, starring legendary actor Choi Minsik as a serial entrepreneur who repeatedly breaks the law to help bolster his burgeoning casino business; The Zone: Survival Mission; Soundtrack #1 and much more.
