So many stills, posters, and teasers came out over the last few days that we just can’t seem to find enough time to write about each individual show. A fangirl has to occasionally sleep after all. So in true kaddict fashion, we are just going to jump right in and share it all in one binge-worthy post.
The plot focuses on the workers of a 112 call center who are looking for the serial killer who murdered their families. Handling emergencies related to crimes, they are all aware of the brief golden time that exists at crime scenes for quick resolutions.
Among them, Moo Jin Hyuk is a former star detective who was demoted due to excessive repression.
KMUSE: I am so excited to watch this drama. I really, really hope that the story is as intriguing as the teasers.
Drama Geek: I’m not a huge fan of either of the leads but the preview has my interest peaked. It will probably all depend on how many dramas I have going when this comes out.
Haidi: Bring it on. I’m already hooked and it’s not even out yet.
Tomorrow With You
The story is about Yoo So Joon, a time-traveler who owns a real estate company worth 200 billion won. When he sees his future self living unhappily, he decides to avoid that fate by marrying Song Ma Rin without love. While their start is a fake marriage, he sees that his wife gets hurt because of him, and it starts to distress him. The story is about him slowly falling in love with her, despite marrying her for selfish and loveless reasons.
KMUSE: A time traveling angsty Lee Je Hoon sounds right up my drama ally. To be perfectly honest, I only enjoy around half of Shin Min Ah’s dramas, but I don’t think that would keep me from checking this show out. Crossing my fingers for greatness.
Drama Geek: You had me at Shin Min Ah and then doubled the goodness with Lee Je Hoon. I love time travel when it’s done right and the story sounds like it’ll be full of sad and contemplating moments. Is it February yet?
Haidi: I’ll be watching this one. I’m a sucker for the time travel trope and maybe it’s just the holiday season but I’m getting a little Christmas Carol vibe. This time Scrooge is going to get all smoochy with the girl though, I just know it.
The drama will be set in a deserted island and cover all the things that happen when a plane crash lands there, inside carrying a fallen boy band member dealing with a plagiarism scandal, a girl group, an actor, a bodyguard, an entertainment reporter, and a flight attendant.
They will have to deal with how they survive in the wild, and through the adventure and adversity they learn the meaning of love.
KMUSE: The show switched the title, cast, & writer so often that I am terrified it is going to be a hot mess. That said, Jung Kyung Ho is the lead so I will be watching no matter how horrible it might be. It is amazing what JKH’s charisma can make me commit to viewing.
Drama Geek: I like when dramaland goes outside of its usual box and I think this one has that potential. I will be checking this one out just to see if they can show me something different.
Haidi: Lost meets Lord of the Flies meets k- culture. Weird but I’ll give it a try.
Woman of Dignity
Woo A-Jin lives a luxurious life due to her wealthy father-in-law, but her father-in-law’s finances become decimated and her husband betrays her. Woo A-Jin’s life hits rock bottom.
KMUSE: Huh, I just realized that it has been forever since I have seen Pillar (Lee Ki Woo) in a drama. I will check this one out but with hesitation. Sometimes the betrayed wife becoming a tough woman drama trope doesn’t hit the right note…
Drama Geek: This is probably a wait and see for me. Don’t get me wrong, I love me some Pillar, but I only have so much drama watching time.
Haidi: I’m going to wait for KMUSE to watch this one. It feels a little tired to me already but if she comes back and says it has some fresh angle, I’ll give it try.
Man to Man
*Synopsis: A drama about a special bodyguard with a background in special investigations and the Hallyu star he is supposed to protect.
Elle Magazine Photo Shoot November 2016 -Man to Man Cast ( Jung Man Sik, Park Hae Jin, Park Sung Woong)
KMUSE: I like the casting for this show but still need to see at least a teaser before I start fangirling.
Drama Girl: Kmuse, how are you not fangirling over those Elle pictures? I know, I know, it’s not actually the drama but these make my mouth water for what could be.
Haidi: Interesting storyline, beautiful people, excellent photos… I’m going to put a pin in this one.
During the Kingdom of Silla, a group of elite youth known as Hwarang (literally “Flowering Knights”) would wield great influence. These dashing, talented knights – Moo Myung, Sam Maek Jong, Soo Ho, Ban Ryu, Yeo Wool, Han Sung, and maiden Ah Ro – could outsmart and outfight anyone as they pushed for justice in Seorabeol, the capital city. One of them would become King Jin Heung of Silla and change the course of history.
KMUSE: I am still feeling really wary of this drama for some reason. Hoping for the best but preparing myself for disappointment.
Drama Geek: The still and previews have been all over the place with this drama. It’s done by the same team that did the Flower Boy series so ridiculous antics are expected. I’m just not sure this drama is going to gel. But… I am a huge V fan and I like the rest of the cast so it’s safe to say I will end up watching the series.
Haidi: Omo and yup! Yup, yup, yup, yup! This show just made me inner 13 year old crush hard. I’ll be watching this religiously.
Rebel Hong Gil Dong
Drama series depicts the life of Hong Gil-Dong who is the the first revolutionist and dissident activist in Joseon.
Script Reading Photos
KMUSE: SQUEEEE! Yoon Gyun Sang as a leading man? A 100 times yes! And the writer also wrote King’s Daughter Soo Baek Hyang which is one of my all time favorite Sagueks which means this drama has a possibility to be epically good.
Drama Geek: I agree with Kmuse. I’m so excited to see Yoon Gyun Sang as a leading man. And I love a good hero story.
Haidi: This one has some great potential. I’ll be watching for more on this one.
Eun Hwan-Ki is the CEO of a public relations company, but he is extremely shy. Due to his personality, even his employees do not know him well. Chae Ro-Woon begins work at his company. She is very energetic and receives recognition for her work, but her only interest is in revealing who Eun Hwan-Ki really is.
KMUSE: This sounds like so much fun. Also the writer penned one of my favorite dramas Marriage Not Dating and the leading man & PD are also from the aforementioned show. Let’s hope that lightning strikes twice and this drama is equally as entertaining.
Drama Geek: It’s funny because the girl playing the fun spunky one just played an introvert in Age of Youth. She’s pretty new but I loved her and she looks adorable in the teaser. And I love the team behind this one too so I’ll be checking it out for sure.
Haidi: I love the idea of this story. I hope that we see some fantastic writing that will make the show fun and make the characters come to life.
We hope this gives you a brief glimpse on what is starting in the next month. Which shows are you going to check out? Let us know in the comments.
Til next time,
