Netflix sees us fellow K-Drama enthusiasts! Because they’re stocking up on eight new K-Dramas this October!
Is your Netflix watch list looking a little stale? Then you’ll be glad to know that Netflix is aware of your need for something new. That’s why they’re stocking up on eight new K-Drama series this October just for y’all! They’re giving us heavy drama, a little comedy, and of course some romance too! So here’s an official list of what’s in store for you this month:
Bring It On, Ghost!
If you’re looking to see more of Kim So Hyun from Love Alarm, then why don’t you give this supernatural romantic comedy a try. And of course, no romantic drama is complete without a handsome oppa! Kim So Hyun pairs up with 2PM’s very own Ok Taec Yeon. Although this series is a bit old, as it first aired in 2016, but if you’ve never watched it before it’s perfectly binge-worthy.
The story focuses on Park Bong Pal (Ok Taec Yeon) who works as an exorcist because he has the supernatural ability to see ghosts! But he’s only doing it because he needs the money for a surgery that can take his ability away. And I don’t blame him who wants to have the burden of seeing ghosts? But then he meets Kim Hyun Ji ( Kim So Hyun), a spirit who asks for his help so she can move on to the afterlife. But they somehow end up falling in love? Will Park Bong Pal still want to get his ability removed now that he’s fallen for a ghost? And how would a relationship with a ghost work? Find out by watching ‘Bring It On, Ghost!’. Available to stream on Netflix right now!
Cheese In The Trap
ICYDK this K-Drama is based on a popular webtoon of the same name. It’s a tale about the lives of a group of friends living their university lives. If you like drama, intense confrontational scenes, and plot twists at every turn then this one is for you. It has a total of 16 episodes and was first aired in 2016. So if you’re looking for something to spice up your rom-com vanilla watch list. You should definitely give ‘Cheese In The Trap’ a try!
Have you ever wondered who you were in a past life? Or have you ever felt a connection to someone that you just can’t explain? Well, if you’re into all of that ‘Chicago Typewriter’ is absolutely filled with it. The story focuses on three people who were part of the rebellion in Korea during the Japanese occupation. Their reincarnations in the present are Han Se Joo (Yoo Ah In) who is a best-selling writer. And then there’s Jeon Seol (Im Soo Jung) who is a veterinarian and avid fan of Se Joo. There’s also, Yoo Jin Goh (Go Kyung Pyo) who is a ghostwriter. They are pulled in to each other’s lives again by a mystery. And what that means for their future you’ll have to find out by watching ‘Chicago Typewriter’.
Twenty Again or Second 20’s
I am a firm believer that nothing is ever too late to experience in this life. And in ‘Second 20s’ the main character, Ha No Ra (Choi Ji Woo) really embodies that. She is a 38-year-old woman who missed out on a good portion of her life because she chose to become a dedicated housewife and mother after getting pregnant at 19. And now that she’s 38, going through a divorce, and just diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. She decides to pursue the thing she had to give up, which was her studies. It’s like she said “f*ck it! I’m going to do what I want!” Even though it won’t be easy being batchmates with her son. As well as having your high school suitor and estranged husband as teachers! Watch this new heart-wrenching K-Drama of second chances and life realizations on Netflix this October.
You wouldn’t want to miss out on this one! Because ‘Signal’ is one of the highest-rated cable dramas in South Korea. This K-Drama is a mix between a police series and sci-fi. Because by some unknown magical force, a detective from the year 2000 and a cold-case profiler in the present are able to communicate via a mysterious walkie-talkie. It’s all very ‘Detective Conan’. So if you’re into mystery sci-fi thrillers, makes sure to watch out for ‘Signal’ when it comes out this October on Netflix.
Another one for you mystery-loving thriller-addicts! Watch ‘The K2’ as it follows the story of a mercenary for hire named Kim Je Ha (Ji Chang Wook). He is a revenge-driven person who took the job as a bodyguard for a rich and well-connected family. All because he needs the job for his revenge plot for the people who framed him for murder. But his plans for revenge take a back seat when he unexpectedly falls in love with the daughter of his boss, Go Anna (Im Yoona). Will his cold heart melt with Go Anna’s love? Watch out for this new K-Drama on Netflix this October.
Tomorrow With You
If you liked ‘The Time Traveler’s Wife’ you may also shed tears for ‘Tomorrow With You’. It follows the story of a man who has the ability to travel back in time by using the subway. Unfortunately, he was able to foresee his death. So in an attempt to change his fate, he decided to change the course of his life and decided to marry. Eventually, he really does fall in love with his wife ad it becomes his goal to spend the rest of his life with her. Will he be able to escape an untimely death? Find out when you watch ‘Tomorrow With You’ on Netflix this October.
You all know him from way back in ‘The Heirs’, maybe this time you’ll love him in ‘Tunnel’. Although unlike ‘The Heirs’ which is a romantic-drama, ‘Tunnel’ is a crime-thriller that also uses themes of time travel. it looks like Netflix is bagging on the fact that this will create a strong following as it did when it aired in 2017. Because not only does this have a compelling story-line, but it is also inspired by real-life events. So give this one a shot, we feel like it’ll hook you.
