April is here and with it comes a new stream of Korean dramas. It’s mostly a month for thrillers this time but there is also some sprinkling of drama and comedy. Let’s look at the list of Korean drama premieres of the month:

Taxi Driver

Network: SBS

Premiere Date: April 9

Stars: Lee Je Hoon, Esom

Slot: Friday & Saturday

Genre: Action, Crime

About: A mysterious taxi service that helps people get justice who couldn’t receive it legally.

Thoughts: The drama is based on a webtoon. I like the leads a lot and the story sounds interesting too.

Sell Your Haunted House / Great Real Estate

Network: KBS

Premiere Date: April 14

Stars: Jang Na Ra, Jung Yong Hwa

Slot: Wednesday & Thursday

Genre: Fantasy, Horror, Comedy

About: A real estate agent who is also an exorcist teams up with a con artist to solve a mystery

Thoughts: I’m getting Master’s Sun vibes from this one, being episodic and horror comedy. I do like the leads, so probably I’m gonna give this one a try.

Amor Fati

Network: SBS

Premiere Date: April 13

Stars: Choi Jung Yoon, Ahn Jae Mo

Slot: Monday to Friday

Genre: Romance

About: A woman who finds out about her husband’s affair and how she overcomes this difficult situation of despair.

Thoughts: It’s a daily drama, and the story sounds familiar too, in line with many daily soaps. But I do like the idea of a woman starting to being hopeful after finding out about her husband’s extramarital affair, and that her life is not restricted to that one bad marriage.

Dark Hole

Network: OCN

Premiere Date: April 24

Stars: Kim Ok Bin, Lee Joon Hyuk

Slot: Saturdays & Sundays

Genre: Thriller, Sci-Fi, Mystery

About: A group of survivors who fight mutants created when humans inhaled a mysterious smoke from a sinkhole.

Thoughts: The plot surely sounds new for a kdrama, it is more like that of a movie. I like the cast and I’m exited to see how the drama tackles this subject.

Law School

Network: JTBC & Netflix

Premiere Date: April 14

Stars: Kim Myung Min, Kim Bum, Ryu Hye Young, Lee Jung Eun

Slot: Wednesday & Thursday

Genre: Legal, Drama

About: The students and professors in the legal department of a university.

Thoughts: Kim Myung Min! I’m not the number one fan of legal dramas but the cast combination adds to my excitement for this show.


Network: JTBC

Premiere Date: April 23

Stars: Ji Jin Hee, Kim Hyun Joo, Yun Woo Jin, Han Sun Hwa

Slot: Fridays & Saturdays

Genre: Thriller, Drama

About: A National Intelligence Service agent who gets married to a human rights lawyer while still hiding his true identity.

Thoughts: This is a remake of 2016 BBC series of the same name. The cast is solid, both the younger and older actors for the same characters. Interestingly, Ji Jin Hee worked with Kim Hyun Joo in 2015’s melodrama I Have A Lover, and Yeon Woo Jin and Han Sun Hwa were together in 2014’s rom-com Marriage Not Dating (which made me his fan!). This is not the first Korean remake of an English language show — we have seen and praised dramas like The Good Wife, Designated Survivor and Suits in the past.
