Titles scheduled for transmission include zombie-themed horror-thriller, Train to Busan, starring Gong Yoo; crime movie, A Violent Prosecutor, starring Hwang Jung-min & Gang Dong-won; political crime thriller, Inside Men, starring Lee Byung-hun and Jo Seung-Woo; and war drama, Operation Chromite, starring Lee Jung-jae and Liam Neeson.

Over 20 first-run Korean movies will premier on tVN exclusively in Malaysia over the coming year, said CJ E&M. All will air with English, Simplified Chinese and Bahasa Malaysia subtitles.

The channel is expected to expand its reach further across Southeast Asia by the end of 2017.
