The two most highly anticipated dramas of February was Missing Nine and Voice, and sadly both came to an end earlier this month. Missing Nine and Voice provided hours of suspense and entwined storylines (what happens on the island, definitely doesn’t stay there). The dramas were well-received by Korean and international audiences and will be truly missed by the K-drama community.
But when one door closes, another one opens in the form of a new drama series. This month is packed with romance, power couples, comedy and lots of twists and turns.
What dramas are you currently watching and what dramas are you looking forward to?
My Father is Strange
Lee Joon, the voice of Ki-woong in Seoul Station and Yoo San in Vampire Detective, plays the male lead Ahn Joong-Hee in My Father is Strange. Ahn Joong-Hee is an actor who used to be a member of an idol group – is it a coincidence or is the drama based on Lee Joon’s life?
One day he appears in front of a family which consists of Byun Han-Soo (Kim Young-Chul) and Na Young-Sil (Kim Hae-Sook) and their four children. The drama follows Ahn Joong-Hee and his antics as he lives with the family.
My Father is Strange started airing earlier this month and it is the perfect drama to binge watch until you’ve caught up!
The Liar and His Lover
The Liar and His Lover is based on the Japanese manga series “Kanojo wa Uso o Aishisugiteru” by Kotomi Aoki. The main lead is Lee Hyun-Woo who plays composer Kang Han-Kyeol. Inspired by the voices of others, Kang Han-Kyeol hides his identity from other people.
However things change when he meets high school student Yoon So-Rim. Played by Joy from popular girl group Red Velvet, Yoon So-Rim has a great voice. Will they fall in love whilst making music?
The Liar and His Lover takes over the tvN Mondays & Tuesdays 23:00 time slot previously occupied by “Introverted Boss.” The drama began on Monday (March 20) which means the first two episodes will be available to watch now.
Fated To Love You and The Heirs actor Choi Jin-Hyuk plays Detective Park Gwang-Ho who desperately tries to catch a serial killer. It is 1986, but whilst Park Gwang-Ho chases the killer and goes through a tunnel, he finds himself in the year 2017.
The detective discovers the serial killer has resumed the killings that began 30 years ago. In an attempt to prevent another victim, Park Gwang-Ho joins forces with Detective Kim Sun-Jae (Yoon Hyun-Min) and Professor of Criminal Psychology Shin Jae-Yi (Lee Yoo-Young).
Tunnel takes over the OCN Saturdays & Sundays 22:00 time slot previously occupied by “Voice” which gives an insight into the genre of the drama. Prepare to be on edge. Prepare to be in shock. Do not say we did not warn you!
The drama will begin this Saturday (March 25). What are your expectations for Tunnel and will you be watching?
Who dares to whisper? Lee Bo Young stars as the female detective Shin Young Joo in the thriller drama. Shin Young Joo spends most of her time working with petty criminals, but one day she works on a corruption case with elite judge Lee Dong Joon (Lee Sang Yoon).
Inspired by the political genre seen in The Defendant, the case will focus on one of the biggest scandals involving the greatest law firm of the nation, Taebaek. What will Shin Young Joo and Lee Dong Joon uncover?
Whisper will air next Monday (March 27) so keep your eyes peeled for episodes.
