New Korean Dramas: June 2020

After multiple months flooding our screens with many drama premieres, June seems like a calmer month with only three drama premieres. It’s a good time to catch up on all the ones we always wanted to watch! Let’s see what is being offered this month:

Backstreet Rookie

On: SBS
Starting On: June 19
Slot: Friday & Saturday
Stars: Ji Chang Wook, Kim Yoo Jung
Genre: Romance, Comedy

This one seems like a typical cute romantic comedy with all the classic cliches thrown into the mix. I like the leads a lot (the adoration started with Healer and Moonlight Drawn By The Clouds) and these type of light and cute dramas are just my cup of tea. The drama is based on a webtoon and the story is set around a convenience store. Ji Chang Wook‘s last drama was Melting Me Softly while Kim Yoo Jung last appeared 2 years back in Clean With Passion For Now.

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

On: tvN and Netflix
Starting On: June 20
Slot: Saturday & Sunday
Stars: Kim Soo Hyun, Seo Ye Ji
Genre: Romance, Drama

The drama is highly anticipated as it marks Kim Soo Hyun‘s return to dramaland after 5 years (can’t believe it has been that long since The Producers aired!). Though he did have cameo roles in Crash Landing on You and Hotel Del Luna post his mandatory military service. It’s Okay to Not Be Okay is a love story between a community health worker at a psychiatric ward and a children’s storybook writer with antisocial personality disorder. Amazing Oh Jung Se plays a crucial role as our hero’s older brother who suffers from autism spectrum disorder. Definitely looking forward to this drama and I simply love the poster above! Seo Ye Ji is looking gorgeous in the stills released by the show. The writing is by the screenwriter of Jugglers.

My Unfamiliar Family

On: tvN
Started On: June 1
Slot: Monday & Tuesday
Stars: Han Ye Ri, Kim Ji Suk
Genre: Family, Romance

This drama has already started airing and it is about a family where members have grown apart and strangers have become more like family to them. I did manage to watch episode 1 and the show seems moody with multiple characters having issues of their own and together. I really like the cast and hope for a satisfying ride with this one. The writer has penned shows like The Man Living in Our House and Flower Boys Next Door.

    I haven’t watched ANY kdramas in ages. I just don’t seem to be able to start anything. It’s like there’s an unsurmountable hill, one that I can’t climb over no matter what. Sigh. Guess kdrama slump is real.
