Upcoming K-dramas: Korean dramas have been extremely famous in recent years due to the variety of genres on which they are based and the swoon-worthy ensemble they are comprised of. While there were some exciting releases in July, August 2022 will also have some excellent new K-dramas.
Poong, The Jeoson Psychiatrist
The drama-comedy series follows Yoo Se-poong (Kim Min-jae), a former doctor to a Royal family, on his journey. After losing his work, he makes his way to the picturesque Gyesu Village, where he meets Seo Eun-woo (Kim Hyang-gi), a widow, and Gye Ji-han, a strange instructor (Kim Sang-kyung). Yoo, who resides in this town, discovers his true purpose in life and starts to assist others in healing their souls.
If You Wish Upon Me
The story of Yoon Gyeo-rae (Ji Chang Wook), who had a tough life and spent time in and out of orphanages, detention facilities, and prison, is the focus of the series, which is directed by Kim Young-wan. He makes friends with nurse Seo Yeon-joo (Sooyoung) and coworker Kang Tae-Shik after volunteering to help out at this hospice (Sung Dong-il). Yoon thinks back on his history and realises that he hasn’t had joy and happiness, and he aspires to live a happy life like everyone else when Seo asks a depressed and reflective Yoon whether he has ever been happy.
A Model Family
A Model Family is a criminal thriller and one of the much anticipated new K-dramas for August 2022. It depicts the struggles of a family on the edge of divorce and bankruptcy. The family finds themselves in peril at this point when Dong-Ha (Jung Woo), an average citizen, comes upon a car laden with cash and a drug cartel.
4. Stock Struck
The financial business parody, also known as Ants Are Riding, is directed by Choi Ji-Young and has a fantastic cast and a compelling story. Five financial investors who meet at an outlandish stock exchange event are the focus of the tale as they explore business, love, friendship, and life while trading.
5. Little Women
This K-drama is a translation of Louisa May Alcott’s renowned English novel of the same name and stars Kim Go Eun, Nam Ji-Hyun, Park Ji Hoo, Wi Ha Joon (of Squid Game fame), and Uhm Ji Won in the key parts. This forthcoming programme, which is the first adaptation of Little Women into a Korean drama, is set in contemporary Korea even though the plot is set in the 1800s.
