MANILA — Streaming service iQiyi has unveiled the Korean and Chinese dramas that are set to premiere on its platform in the coming months.

In a statement issued Tuesday, the Beijing-based service said it would premiere a Korean drama and shows under its "Love On" collection on from May 20 to September.

The "Love On" collection is composed of 7 Chinese dramas.

"This is the international streamer’s second content collection to continue its commitment in serving the best-in-class Asian romance entertainment to the global viewers," iQiyi said.
