Every month, new K-drama series get released, and if you’re like me, you’d watch them weekly because what is patience? These ongoing dramas released in June might have a long way to go, but so far, here are our favourite six.
Yumi’s Cells season 2
Season 2 explores Yumi’s relationship with her new love interest Bobby, GOT7’s Jinyoung. This drama tells the story of the ordinary life of Yumi from the perspective of the animated brain cells in her head that control her every thought, feeling and action. Last season we saw the struggle Goo Woon faced trying to wake up Yumi’s love cell after it fell into a coma after she got heartbroken. So, good luck to Jinyoung’s character. He’s going to need it. We will be on the other end of our phones, laughing our asses off.
Jinxed At First
Imagine having so much bad luck in your life that people avoid you, so they don’t get it? Well, that’s what the main character, Gong Soo-Gwang, had to deal with daily. Until he meets Lee Seul-bi again, a woman with the unique ability to see people’s future whenever she touches them. Except, the last time he met Lee Seul-bi, his life changed, and every time he dreams of her, he has terrible luck.
Alchemy of Souls
If you like your K-dramas with a bit of magic, deception and foolish main characters, watch Alchemy of Souls. Set in the fictional country of Daeho, the series follows the lives of young mages and how they overcome their twisted fates because of a magic spell known as the “alchemy of souls”, which allows souls to switch bodies and how they find love. Five episodes in, and the show’s as chaotic as expected. Love it.
Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area
First, this K-drama started with Tokyo dancing to BTS’s song DNA, and I was sold. It’s a Korean remake of the original Spanish hit drama, following the same characters with a more Korean storyline. The actor’s list is impressive, and they actuated for their daily 2k. It has just six episodes so far, so you can watch them in six days.
Nam Han-Jun, a former criminal profiler, now works as a shaman who defrauds people as a fortune teller for money in his shop, Minamdang. It’s easy for people to fall for his lies because he’s good-looking and has smooth-talking skills. Somehow, he gets entangled with Han Jae-Hui, a police inspector who wants nothing more than to arrest him.
Extraordinary Attorney Woo
This series follows Woo Young, a lawyer who graduated top of the class from Seoul National University. Everything should be perfect for her, except she struggles with everyday interactions because she is autistic. While they’ve released only two episodes, the series shows lots of promise for that funny, heartwarming content we love.
