The Miracle That We Met

The Miracle That We Met has a familiar plot like most South Korean fantasy dramas, with a body-swap smack in the middle of its story. In a strange cosmic accident, Song Hyul-cheol (Kim Myung-min) dies in an accident meant for another man (Ko Chang-seok), and the heavens give him a chance to return to the living world—except, he wakes up in the wrong body. The story mostly follows Song Hyul-cheol as he is caught up in two lives, heading two families and agonizing over two wives.




Lawless Lawyer

In this new Korean crime drama, an ex-gangster-turned-lawyer (Lee Joon-gi) uses his newfound profession to avenge his mother. Being a lawyer might keep him chained to the law, but it doesn’t stop him from finding loopholes in the rules. Lee Joon-gi and his co-star Seo Ye-ji have already been praised for their chemistry in the show, so we’ll definitely keep our eyes peeled for Lawless Lawyer.



Why Secretary Kim

When you can catch it: May 2018


This show stars Park Min-young as the secretary who has to put up with a rather narcissistic but extremely wealthy businessman (Park Seo-joon) and his day-to-day shenanigans. But how will the busy tycoon react when his arrogance makes Secretary Kim want to quit? This Korean romance drama is based on a webtoon with the same name.




Memories of Alhambra

When you can catch it: Second half of 2018


Though Memories of Alhambra is scheduled to release later in the year, we can’t help but be excited about what’s to come—and we’re crossing our fingers that Park Shin-hye agrees to co-star with Hyun-Bin! The story follows engineer-slash-CEO Yoo Jin-woo (Hyun-Bin) who goes on a business trip to Granada, Spain. But his trip takes an interesting turn when strange things start to happen at the Palace of Alhambra. The drama will be under the direction of Ahn Gil-ho (Forest of Secrets) and writer Song Jae-jung (WNine), so we’re definitely expecting nothing but great things from this upcoming sci-fi drama!
