If Hometown Cha-Cha Cha hasn’t warmed the cockles of your heart, or DP didn’t leave you inspired, September is coming with an entirely new slate of K-dramas. From fantasy, action, romance and prestige drama, there’s a lot to look forward to in the coming month. Here’s the lowdown on what you should watch:
A 40-year-old ghostwriter and a 27-year-old man meet at a time when both are convinced that they will achieve nothing in their lives. Starring Jeon Do-yeon and Ryu Jun-eol, the series is directed by Hur Jin-ho, who helmed Christmas In August and One Fine Spring Night. You can catch the series on Rakuten Viki from September 4.
Another thriller comes your way. Cho Yeo-jeong, who played the rich housewife in Parasite, leads the cast as Song Yeo-ul, a former lawyer who loses everything when she’s framed for her husband’s murder. The series will stream from September 6 on Rakuten Viki.
One The Woman
What happens when a prosecutor loses her memory in the midst of a gruelling case? Lee Ha-nee takes on the role of Jo Yeon-joo, who finds herself in a series of entangled and absurd adventures.
The show focuses on the contestants of a secret survival game, who are each vying for a 45.6 billion won (US$39 million) prize. Among the participants are Ki-hoon (Lee Jung-jae), who has just lost his job and his friend Sang-woo (Park Hae-soo), who has received a good education but is confronting a crisis at work. Tempting prizes await, but with deadly stakes. The show drops on Netflix on September 17.
