Grab a straw, change into some comfy sweats, and get ready to drink in all the dramas premiering (and currently airing) on Netflix this month.
They’re a delicious blend of scary, suspenseful, and sweet, so I hope you’re thirsty.
Starring: Jo Seung-woo & Bae Doo-na
Plot: Hwang Si-mok (Cho Seung-woo) is a skilled Prosecutor who lost the ability to feel empathy after undergoing surgery when he was a child. He’s also hypersensitive to certain sound frequencies.
Si-mok teams up with gutsy Police Lieutenant Han Yeo-jin (Bae Doo-na) to solve a murder case where the corruption goes all the way to the top.
In the second season of this acclaimed thriller, the two are caught in the middle of a power struggle between their respective agencies.
I’m sure the second season is just as gripping as the first.
V – We just finished watching/recapping the second season and can’t wait to dig into the first season!
Record of Youth
Genre: Romance, Coming-of-age
Starring: Park Bo-gum, Park So-dam, and Byeon Woo-seok
Plot: Sa Hye-joon (Park Bo-gum) is a popular model looking to make the crossover into acting. Though he hasn’t landed any memorable roles, he’s friendly and charming. Ahn Jung-ha (Park So-dam) is a makeup artist also struggling in the entertainment industry. She appears cheerful, but is lonely and fangirls over idols to relieve her stress.
Can these two make their dreams come true? Or will the industry they love crush their spirits.
I love a good coming-of-age tale…and Park Bo-gum. So I’m glad ten episodes of this drama are already out. It’ll also be interesting to see Park So-dam in something light since her last big role was in “Parasite”.
School Nurse Files
Starring: Jung Yoo-mi & Nam Joo-hyuk
Plot: Ahn Eun-young (Jung Yoo-mi) is a school nurse with the special ability to see jelly-like monsters that are essentially the result of human desires. She teams up with another teacher by the name of Hong In-pyo (Nam Joo-hyuk) to slay them before they wreak havoc throughout the school.
“Fight monsters. Save the school. Go to lunch.” With a tagline like that, how could you skip what seems to be a delightfully whacky drama? All six episodes are available for streaming right now.
Starring: Seo-hyun (from SNSD! Our 2nd gen maknae’s all grown up!) & Go Kyung-pyo
Plot: Five con artists join forces to bring down a major corporation. Lee Jung-hwan (Go Kyung-pyo) happens to work at said corporation, but that’s not going to stop him and the alluring Cha Joo-eun (Seo-hyun) from leading the charge against it.
So far, four slick and suspenseful episodes are available to binge!
Do Do Sol Sol La La Sol
Starring: Go Ah-ra & Lee Jae-wook
Plot: Goo Ra-ra (Go Ah-ra) is a talented pianist from a wealthy family. When her family hits rock bottom, she gets job at a piano academy in a small village where she meets Sun Wo-joon (Lee Jae-wook), a mysterious and tortured soul.
Lee Jae-wook of “Search: WWW” fame in his first leading role? It’s about time!
Genre: Romance, Comedy
Starring: Ji Sung & Han Ji-min
Plot: Cha Joo-hyuk (Ji Sung) is a banker who’s been trapped in an unhappy marriage for the past five years. Seo Woo-jin (Han Ji-min) is his equally unhappy wife. They both work and support their parents financially, while raising two kids.
One day Joo-hyuk meets his first love and she tells him she liked him when they were younger. Joo-hyuk is stunned all the way home, but ends up helping a man on the subway. The man gives him two mysterious coins, and when he wakes up the next morning, Joo-hyuk’s life is completely different.
This sounds like a good “What If” drama with a wholesome message.
V – Worth the watch! The first 1 or 2 episodes are heavy on the divorce and my-life-is-horrible aspect of the show. But the fun is on and popping when the new reality starts! We actually skipped the first (and maybe second) episode and started watching at episode 2 or 3 (I think) and ended up enjoying this show a lot.
Genre: Romance, Coming-of-age
Starring: Suzy & Nam Joo-hyuk
Plot: Seo Dal-mi (Suzy) doesn’t have much to her name, but dreams of becoming Korea’s Steve Jobs. With the help of math genius, Nam Do-san (Nam Joo-hyuk) the two navigate the tech world as well as matters of the heart.
With two crowd favorites in the cast list, everyone is eagerly anticipating this drama.
It’s getting colder, so this is the perfect time for Netflix to add more Korean dramas to their catalogue.
I mean, why brave the elements when you can snuggle up with a warm drink and immerse yourself in other worlds? (V – Truth!)
