'Bucin' aka 'Whipped': Release date, plot, cast and all you need to know about the Indonesian Netflix movie

Love is complicated. Who doesn't know that? Not everyone is lucky enough to find the perfect match in life.

And in Netflix's upcoming Indonesian film titled 'Bucin' aka 'Whipped' (aka as 'Welcome to the Anti-Bucin Class' in some references), four men don't have the perfect partner. As they try to escape their unhealthy relationships, they opt for rather unusual methods that undoubtedly lead to chaos.

But the real question is, will they be able to leave their unhappy relationships? Will they ever be able to be in a mature and healthy relationship and quit being slaves of love?

Here's everything you need to know about the upcoming comedy-drama series. 

Release date

'Bucin' aka 'Whipped' is set to premiere only on Netflix in 190 countries on 18 September 2020. 



According to the official synopsis of the Netflix Indonesian original movie, "The story follows four young men - each with their own love issues - who enrol in an 'anti-whipped' class to break free from being enslaved by love. The foursome soon realises that not only does the class have unusual, if not extreme methods, to teach them, it also starts to threaten their friendship and relationships with their partners. Will they survive the class?"


The word 'Bucin' literally translates to 'Love Slaves'. "'Bucin' is a lighthearted romantic comedy that shows how being in love, and the felicity that comes with it can still feel one-sided and consuming." 


The movie stars Jovial Da Lopez, alongside Andovi Da Lopez, and Tommy Limmm (all popular Indonesian YouTubers). Other cast members include Susan Sameh, Karina Salim, Kezia Aletheia, and Widika Sidmore.



The film marks the directorial debut of popular YouTube content creator Chandra Liow, and is co-written by Jovial Da Lopez who also stars in the film. 'Bucin' is produced by Gope T. Samtani and executive produced by  Sunil G. Samtani, Jovial Da Lopez, and Priya NK.


Netflix is yet to release an official trailer for the movie. MEA WorldWide (MEAWW) will update this article when it is available. But you can watch the Indonesian trailer here:
