The 10-episode Crime Procedural Series Premieres First and Exclusively on KIX HD
Malaysia (June 4, 2012) – Critically acclaimed Korean crime procedural series, TEN, will be making waves amidst the Korean drama phenomenon in Malaysia when the scripted series debuts exclusively on KIX HD on June 14. Steering away from the romance and comedy plots as seen in many Korean dramas, TEN is one of the first Korean cable TV series that ventures into bolder and edgier territory to engage viewers at an unprecedented level.
Touted as the “best series produced in Korea currently”, the series took over the number one spot in ratings among cable channels during its timeslot, occupying the top spot continuously for nine weeks (24:00-25:00, November 18, 2011 – January 13, 2012). The last episode of this suspense series received a 3.16% average rating nationwide, making it one of the highest rated cable dramas in Korea this year*.
TEN follows the investigations of “Special Affairs Team TEN”; a unit put together to tackle the most violent and mysterious cases that have less than a 10% chance of being solved. Starring Joo Sang Wook (The Feast of The Gods and Paradise Ranch) and Jo An (King Gwanggaeto the Great and Secret Investigation Record), the thriller sees the former leading a team of four detectives to hunt down the most notorious killers; those who seem to leave no traces of their crimes. With the motto, “no more unsolved crimes!” this special unit of detectives will face some of the most twisted criminals they have ever dealt with.
The production of TEN took three years and eight months to complete, with each episode incurring a hefty USD $140,000 production budget. Solid directing, compelling script and a strong cast landed this procedural series the “Best Contents Award” at the Guerime Awards 2011 and Grand Prize at 2012 Cable TV Program Awards.
The strong performance of TEN has also garnered the sequel that is tentatively slated for production next year.
TEN premieres on 14th June, on KIX HD (ASTRO channel 729), on Thursdays @ 10pm.
World-class action channel KIX HD is proud to be the host of the premiere of TEN. Living by the slogan of “Action By Day, Thrill By Night”, KIX HD offers the best of action with a late night dose of thrills in high definition.
