If you’re a fan of K-drama or K-movie, you’ll already have witnessed the chemistry between Itaewon Class star Kim Da-mi and the Parasite star Choi Woo-shik in the movie The Witch: Part 1. The Subversion. The two are working together again as a couple this December.
Slated to premiere on December 6, this romantic comedy-drama is the first original series from Studio N. It features rising stars Kim Sung-Cheol and Roh Jeong-eui. The plot surrounds former lovers who gain fame a decade after starring together in a high school documentary. If K-romance is up your alley, this will be the one to watch this winter.
Are you a fan of a psychological or a mystery drama? If so, this one’s for you. Featuring Kim Kang-woo and Soo Ae, this psychological series delves into how society pushes people to conceal their true, dark selves.
Are you still in love with Squid Game’s police Wi Ha-joon? Then here is a piece of good news for you! Wi will be in the upcoming drama Bad and Crazy, which premiers on December 17. This thriller and fantasy series stars many other top K-drama actors, including the Guardian star Lee Dong-Wook, Be Melodramatic star Han Ji-eun, and N from K-pop band Vixx.
Long-waited drama with lead stars Blackpink’s Jisoo and Jung Hae-in is finally on its way. On December 18 on various platforms, including Dinsey+, this dark yet romantic series depicts South Korea in 1987 and ruled under dictatorship.
