The month of spooks and scares has finally arrived and dimsum entertainment is here to send chills down your spine with #Horrorween.
It’s time to indulge in all things creepy, eerie, blood-curdling, and maybe even sinister. And what better way to do that than by treating yourself to the top 8 scariest and most mysterious shows we’ve curated for you.
1. The “spook-tacular” unsolved mysteries
Debuting soon on dimsum entertainment is Kumanthong – a mystical and ghostly tale of Soi, a deaf-mute girl living in a remote village in the Mekong Delta, Vietnam. There, she meets a stranger living on a boat named Luu Huyn who claims to be a shaman healer. He quickly wins the hearts of the villagers after miraculously healing one of them.
Soi and Huyn are almost immediately drawn to each other – they fall in love and even get married soon after. It’s all too good to be true as Soi slowly starts to uncover her beloved husband’s dark past along with his unquenchable desire for immortality and the forbidden dark arts. At what cost will these come with? You’ll have to tune in to find out!
Remember shows like Paranormal Activity? Well, Classic Unbelievable is a popular Hong Kong TV show that follows paranormal and supernatural happenings in Hong Kong and neighboring East Asia countries. This “documentary-style” series will leave you on the edge of your seat.
Whatever you do, best not to turn around when you’re watching this in the dark though…
2. The nail-biting thrillers
Before there was “Train to Busan”, there was Seoul Station. In this gripping animated epic, follow the events leading up to the popular blockbuster through the lives of Hye-sun and her boyfriend, Ki-woong. Witness the city under siege as the people struggle to stay ahead and stay alive from the hoard.
Other than that, there’s While You Were Sleeping. In this series, Hong-ju suffers from premonistic dreams after getting into an accident. She even has visions of her mother’s death and becomes frustrated at not being able to change the course of “fate” in the past. Eventually, she ends up meeting a prosecutor by the name Jae-chan, and the two join forces to solve cases.
Okay, maybe that’s too much for your heart to take. In that case, you can always take a breather and watch more “lighthearted” horror-themed shows we have.
3. The hilarious but uncanny
Love Destiny is a story where karma, merit, love, destiny, and a moon mantra combine to fling Ketsurang, a budding archaeologist, into the body of another woman named Karaket who lived during the Ayutthaya era 300 years earlier.
Like every archaeologist’s dream, Ketsurang became enthralled by the past she used to only read about in her books. But how will Karaket’s betrothed and the household react to the “new” Karaket now that Ketsurang is the new soul in town? She speaks strangely, acts differently, and is way too nice to be the same person.
(Psst! If you’re a fan of Pope Thanavat and Bella Ranee, then be sure to catch them in Deceitful Love which is now on dimsum entertainment with new episodes every Tuesday and Wednesday. Here, Bella stars as a successful CEO and Pope as a long-lost flame.)
House of Spirits is also playing if you’re looking for quirky family drama. Join Po Foon and his siblings as they try their best to carry out their late father’s will to sell their family house as they slowly find out that they’re not the only ones living there…
4. For the romantic
If you want to take a breather from all the suspense and thrills then get your blood pumping and your heart racing in a different direction with touching love stories (time to break out that box of tissues).
The Past Life is a series that jumps between the modern-day and the era of King Rama IV’s reign. In a touching and almost tragic tale of separated lovers across space and time, this series will have you rooting for our protagonists, Prince Rangsitorn and Mankaew. Will their love prevail in this tale of rebirth?
Or what about Nakee? Kumkaew is a girl that was born with mysterious powers, but she doesn’t know it. She’s kind of the village outcast, and others are wary of her because of her affinity for snakes. Meanwhile, curious archaeology student, Thosapol becomes increasingly enamoured with the history of Nakee, The Serpent Queen. The two have a complicated relationship when we delve into their past lives – how will they reunite this time around?
