They say Christmas isn’t so much a season as it is a feeling. Even though we don’t get to experience a white Christmas here in Southeast Asia, there’s no reason not to feel the winter cheer! This December, Dimsum Entertainment brings you heartwarming tales of love and family that will surely put you in a merry mood.
First up, we take a trip back to 1960’s Thailand in Repercussion, a Thai period drama exploring themes of family conflict and karma. Superstar Mai Charoenpura makes a powerful comeback in Repercussion – after almost a decade on hiatus – as Yoi, a morally gray matriarch who believes the best way to happiness is by ruling with an iron fist. Mai is not the only big name to star in Repercussion; with the finale of Deceitful Love on the horizon, this is also a great chance for Bella Campen fans to discover a juicy new drama!
After the intense story of Repercussion, perhaps one might like to chill with a heartwarming tale. Dimsum Entertainment serves up some chicken soup for the soul with EYE ON THE BALL, produced by Star Media Group’s very own R.AGE team. The docu-film follows Malaysia’s blind football team, Harimau Buta, as they work towards the World Blind Football Championships. EYE ON THE BALL is a one-of-its-kind peek into the lives of disabled athletes and viewers will surely find themselves cheering for Harimau Buta throughout their journey.
We know some of you have a hankering for new Chinese dramas too, which is why we’ve partnered with leading distributor MediaQuiz to bring you some awesome shows from China! Look out for titles such as Fighter of the Destiny, Chinese Hero Zhao Zi Long, Adoption and Ban Shu Legend, coming soon to Dimsum Entertainment. They will surely satisfy action, fantasy and romance fans alike!
Since being established in Hong Kong in 2010, MediaQuiz has distributed more than 1500 episodes of content to various platforms across Asia. Thus, Dimsum Entertainment‘s audience can expect the best of Chinese entertainment. Of course, the K-Wave has touched even China; fans of K-Pop, do look forward to seeing superstars such as Luhan and Yoona in Fighter of the Destiny and Chinese Hero Zhao Zi Long!
Speaking of the K-Wave, no lineup of Asian entertainment is complete without a K-Drama. This month, we are bringing you Find Me In Your Memory, a slow-burn romance that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy. Without spoiling too much, Find Me In Your Memory has also been lauded for its sensitive portrayal of characters with conditions such as amnesia and hyperthymesia.
Finally, let’s end an old year with some new skills! Spend every day with Dimsum Entertainment in our series of freemium shorts where you can pick up baking, health tips, and more. This Christmas is going to be educational, enriching AND entertaining!
We hope our special Christmas lineup brings a little magic into your life and a renewed hope for 2021!
