GEM Plans Same-Time Simulcast for My Loser Husband


The Japanese drama My Loser Husband is set to premiere on Sony Pictures Television Networks’ Asian entertainment channel GEM on July 8 at 9 p.m., the same time as its debut in Japan.

My Loser Husband stars Ryo Nishikido from the popular group Kanjani Eight and Mayu Matsuoka. The drama will be airing on GEM in Cambodia, Hong Kong, Indonesia, the Philippines, Singapore and Thailand at the same time as it is in Japan, every Saturday at 9 p.m.

“The great response from previous same-time-as-Japan offerings has been extremely encouraging,” said Virginia Lim, the senior VP and head of content, production and marketing at Sony Pictures Television Networks, Asia. “There is strong demand for express content and we believe viewers will enjoy My Loser Husband with its stellar cast and appealing storyline without any delay from its telecast in Japan.”
