Moreover, Oh Yeon Seo will show off a new side of herself as the mysterious client. Lee Soo Hyuk, Lim Seul Ong, and Huh Sung Tae will also be joining the show.

Hierarchy (6/7)

Netflix’s June new release is Hierarchy, a teen drama set in a prestigious private high school. The story unfolds as a transfer student, selected as part of the noblesse oblige program, enters a private school attended only by children from the upper class. This reminds us of the Spanish drama Elite, which achieved worldwide success and gained popularity with its fast-paced plot and shocking exposure to the desires of teenagers. Hierarchy is expected to unfold with a conflict narrative that incorporates Korean themes such as school violence. Can this Korean-style class society story centered on teenagers captivate viewers? However, some have already expressed fatigue in seeing this type of story again.

My Sweet Mobster tells the story of a man with a dark past who has turned his life around after meeting a woman who works as a kids’ content creator. Uhm Tae Goo plays a man with a pure heart hidden behind a gruff exterior, and Han Sun Hwa plays the woman who helps him open up.

Jung Eun Ji will play the role of the young woman in her 20s, while Lee Jung Eun will play the role of her middle-aged self in her 50s.
