To X Who Doesn’t Love Me (7/14)

To X Who Doesn’t Love Me is about a youthful romance that we all dreamed of at some point. The drama revolves around a magical notepad that can make anyone fall in love with someone for one month. When Seo Hee Soo, a college student with low self-esteem, discovers the journal, she becomes entangled with multiple young men, including her guy friend Jung Shi Ho. Work Later, Drink Now star Han Ji Hyo plays aspiring lyricist Seo Hee Soo, and NCT’s Doyoung plays her bestie Jung Si Ho who learns about her secret. The new show is currently reaping enthusiastic reactions from drama fans after releasing its teaser few weeks ago.


Remarriage & Desires (7/15)

Netflix has introduced us to many great Korean dramas with fresh ideas and diverse genres. This month, Netflix will introduce us to a new soap opera, Remarriage & Desires, starring Kim Hee Sun as its centerpiece. The drama revolves around a top-class matchmaking agency specializing in remarriages of elite singles in high society. Kim Hee Sun plays Seo Hye Seung, an ordinary wife and mother who loses everything due to the sudden death of her husband and jumps into the marriage business to get revenge against the one who ruined her life. Its trailer got many fans and viewers hyped up for its classy makjang drama plot. (*makjang dramas refer to shows that are unrealistic but too addictive to stop watching.)


Adamas (7/27)

Ji Sung will turn into two twin brothers who will face off their twisted fate. Adamas depicts the story of twin brothers who struggle to prove their biological father’s innocence, who was accused of killing their stepfather 22 years ago. Ji Sung stars as both twins: Ha Woo Shin, a best-selling mystery novel author, and Song Soo Hyun, a special forces prosecutor who works at the Central District Prosecutor’s office. Seo Ji Hye plays Eun Hye Soo, the daughter-in-law of a large conglomerate who secretly helps Ha Woo Shin. Lee Soo Kyung takes on the role of Lee Seo Hee, a social affairs reporter who hides an important secret from the twin brothers. As Ji Sung wonderfully portrayed his character with split personality in Kill Me, Heal Me, viewers are wondering how he would pull off his twin characters in the upcoming series.

SBS and MBC will be locked in a fierce rating battle for their upcoming Friday-Saturday dramas. Today’s Webtoon, which will air following the conclusion of Why Her, is a Korean remake of the popular Japanese drama Sleepeeer Hit!. The new show will showcase the daily life of On Ma Eum, a former judo athlete who joins an editorial department as a new webtoon editor. Kim Se Jeong, who recently enjoyed huge success with Business Proposal, will take on the role of On Ma Eum who gives up on her Olympic dreams and joins Neon Webtoon’s editorial department with her positive and bubbly spirit. Although there have been plenty of Korean remakes of Japanese dramas like Legal High, Naeil’s Cantabile and Matrimonial Chaos, none of them achieved notably high viewership ratings. Therefore, there is a keen interest in how the new series will do on the small screen.


Big Mouse (7/29)

Will Lee Jong Suk and YoonA be able to end the ratings decline for MBC’s Friday-Saturday series? Big Mouse, which will air following Doctor Lawyer in the weekend night block, is about a third-rate lawyer who winds up in charge of a murder case that forces him to expose an unimaginable conspiracy among the high society. Lee Jong Suk stars as a lawyer named Park Chang Ho, who faces a trumped-up charge that turns his life upside down. YoonA plays his wife Go Mi Ho, a resourceful nurse who works together with her husband to face off against the authorities to save her husband and their family. Including the two as a married couple, the production stars an incredible cast, including Kim Joo Hun, Ok Ja Yeon, Yang Kyung Won and Kwak Dong Yeon.


The Good Detective 2 (7/30)

Son Hyun Joo and Jang Seung Jo‘s The Good Detective is renewed for Season 2. The first season followed the realistic lives of two police detectives as they sought to uncover the truth behind a mysterious murder. The series garnered positive reviews for its tension-filled plotline that well-combined thriller with social drama. Son Hyun Joo and Jang Seung Jo will reprise their roles, with Kim Hyo Jin and Jung Moon Sung hopping on the cast in Season 2 as a super-rich conglomerate couple. However, Lee Elijah, who formed a romantic bond with Jang Seung Jo in the previous season, won’t be returning in the upcoming season.
