Phi to be the first Turkish Drama in Korea!

Phi will become the first Turkish drama series to air on Korean television, on GTV this November.

The channel, which focuses on a female audience with a line up of lifestyle, cookery and fashion programming, will use Phi to introduce the Turkish Drama phenomenon to the Korean market.

Mint Media Group, who facilitated the deal alongside international distributor Eccho Rights, will dub the series in to Korean using A-list voice actors. CEO of Mint Media, Lee Hak Rae: “The Korean audience is not familiar with Turkish series yet, so the dubbed version will be a perfect opportunity to introduce this new genre in to Korea."

GTV will also bring a specially created 4K version of the series to their ultra hi-def service UHD Dream TV.
