On My Radar: Upcoming September K-Dramas
There are many talked about dramas premiering soon (Yay for fall romance dramas!). But these are the September 2017 Korean dramas that have really caught my eye.
- While You Were Sleeping
Starring Bae Suzy as Nam Hong-Joo and Lee Jong-Suk as Jung Jae-Chan, it has the potential to be a Fall favorite. A woman who can see the future through her dreams combined with a prosecutor whom is trying to stop the dreams from becoming reality does sound like a classic Korean drama plot line. However, the casting in this SBS drama is what makes it so appealing. I will watch any drama that stars Lee Jong-Suk especially after his performance in “W-Two Worlds.”
2. Temperature of Love
The trailer for this one really intrigued me. “Temperature of Love” is the story of an aspiring writer played by Seo Hyun-Jin meeting a chef played by Yan Se-Jong after only communicating with each other online. I really enjoyed Seo Hyun-Jin’s acting in “Another Miss Oh”, so I’m excited to see her character portrayal for this drama.
3. 20th Century Boy and Girl
Another MBC drama for September. Han Ye-Seul, Kim Ji-Suk, Lee Sang-Woo, and Ryu Hyun-Kyung star in this drama about three friends going through life and romance. I’m excited for this one because the main plot is surrounding the friendship between three women, but I still get my dose of romance thrown in.
Bonus: Hospital Ship
This MBC drama starts on August 30th, so I’m considering it a bonus for September. “Hospital Ship” is about a group of doctors that live/travel on a ship to remote islands providing medical services. The two main characters, Song Eun-Jae and Kwak Hyun, are portrayed by Ha Ji-Won and Kang Min-Hyuk, respectively. I’m usually skeptical of hospital/medical dramas. However, with the main setting being on a ship, I think this drama will stand out from the rest.
