The kids are finally back at school and you're finally able to breathe a little easier. Be sure to practise self-care and unwind by watching this month's latest TV shows.

The One

Based on the novel of the same name by John Marrs, The One is set in a future where finding your life partner is made incredibly easy – by simply taking a DNA test.

While the technology greatly revolutionises the dating world, it also complicates things. It all comes to a head when a man commits suicide and its inventor is implicated. This psychological thriller stars Hannah Ware and Dimitri Leonidas.

The One premieres March 12 on Netflix.


The rich and influential Bae family owns a thriving grocery business, thanks to the iron-fisted rule of its matriarch Yoi.It's either her way or the highway even when it comes to her family's personal lives.

When Yoi’s eldest son returns from his military service with a woman that she doesn't approve of, she tries to find him another match she deems more "respectable" instead.

Unfortunately, things take a turn for the worse when Yoi's micromanaging results in tragic consequences. Starring Mai Charoenpura and Bella Ranee Campen.

Repercussion is available on dimsum entertainment.
