Gunfights and subterfuge are par for the course in South Korean drama "Red Swan". Seo Do-yoon is the stolid bodyguard assigned to former world-beating golfer Oh Wan Soo when she marries into aristocracy.

You're going to love it.

The life of luxury that Wan Soo had envisaged when she married Kim Yong-Guk isn't quite what it was cracked up to be, and in an effort to make the marriage work, she's prepared to overlook several indiscretions.

Little does she know that the occasional affair pales in comparison to the grimy inner workings of the Hwain Group, an omnipresent business empire that's built its vast fortune off the back of cold-hearted cruelty, corruption and callousness.

When Do Yoon foils an attempt on Wan Soo's life, they forge a bond, and it transpires that her unassuming bodyguard isn't quite what he appears to be. Read on to find out how to watch "Red Swan" online and from anywhere.
