The World of The Married finale breaks TV viewership records

Its 16-episode run finished with a bang, making history as the highest-rated drama on Korean cable TV with 28.4 per cent rating last 16 May. The cast wrapped it all up by thanking their fans' for their overwhelming support in a few behind-the-scenes clips uploaded on JTBC's YouTube Channel

All good things come to an end, but that only paves the way for better things to come. Now that you have one title done and over with, you can add another one to your bingeing watchlist soon. This 5 June, the Fab Five is coming back for the fifth season of Queer Eye. After they've gone on a short trip to Japan, catch them as they change the lives of heroes from Philadelphia.

The Stonehenge will be live-streaming its summer solstice celebration




ICYDK, another exciting thing coming up next month in the northern hemisphere is the summer solstice, when the sun reaches its highest point in the sky. During this time, thousands gather at Stonehenge in England to watch the sunrise. The ancient site is believed to have been created thousands of years ago as a centre for religious worship, but up until today, the summer solstice celebration held here is much-awaited for both travellers and for the members of Pagan communities. And while you can't fly off to the UK and witness the marvellous scene, the English Heritage has announced that they'll be live-streaming the whole event on their socials this 21 June. The Stonehenge was carefully aligned to match the sun's movement, and during this midsummer event, you'll now get to see how the sunlight is channelled into the very centre of the monument on-screen.
