Mediacorp & BEC World Ink Deal for Thai Dramas


Mediacorp has signed a deal with BEC World to roll out more than 600 hours of Thai dramas on mewatch for free, with selected titles also airing on Channel U.

The slate includes Love Destiny 2, a sequel to the 2018 hit Love Destiny. The first installment saw Gadesurang travel back in time and fall in love with Dej. In the sequel, the two embrace parenthood with twins.

Love Destiny 2 is set to debut on mewatch in both Chinese and Thai in the same week as its original release in Thailand.

Other titles coming to mewatch are Dare to Love, following an aspiring lawyer who grapples with the surprise return of a past love; To Me, It’s Simply You, Thailand’s top-rated prime-time series in 2021, which sees an urban dweller return to his home village and rediscover the rural community; and Nakee, about a girl with superpowers and an archaeology student who embark on an odyssey full of superstitions and an ancient curse.

“We are delighted to partner with Mediacorp in bringing the best Thai Dramas to Singaporean viewers,” said Surin Krittayaphongphun, president of TV business and executive director at BEC World. “This collaboration not only showcases our commitment towards delivering high-quality content but also signifies our dedication to furthering strong ties between Singapore and Thailand through shared cultural experiences.”

Lee Hung Sheng, head of audience and partnerships at Mediacorp, added, “We are thrilled to join forces with BEC, home to a treasure trove of Thai dramas renowned for their inventive storytelling and cultural richness. This collaboration underscores our commitment to catering to the diverse, dynamic tastes of local audiences with an ever-expanding slate of content offerings across our media network. We hope viewers will find as much joy in these stories as we have in curating them!”
