Like Work Later, Drink Now, this drama is part of the wave of “good vibe” and “positive energy” series that deal with ordinary people with whom you can associate yourself.

Main actors

Scenario: Shin Ha Ri is a young woman working in a company. One of her friends asks her to take her place on a blind date. This blind date is Kang Tae Mu, the CEO of the company where she works. This meeting will completely change the course of their lives.

A beautiful comedy that will turn into a romance. We fall a little into the cliché drama but we can trust the director Park Seon Ho who also directed Suspicious Partner and Wok of Love. After demons and superpowers in The Uncanny Counter, actress and idol Kim Se Jeong returns to reality alongside Ahn Hyo Seop who leaves the traditional garb of drama Lovers of the Red Sky.

5. Military Prosecutor Doberman

Release Dates: February 28
Broadcast: tvN
Aired on: Monday and Tuesday
Number of episodes: 16 (of 60 minutes)
Director: Jin Chang-gyu
Screenwriter: Yoon Hyun Ho
Genres: Military, Legal

Main actors

Storyline: Do Bae Man became a military prosecutor in order to earn money and achieve success. Cha Woo In is a young military prosecutor who became one for revenge. They have different personalities and different goals but will have to work together to bring justice to the army.

We had military dramas, but not necessarily from a legal point of view. This drama seemed to me rather interesting to present. The screenplay was directed by Yoon Hyun Ho, who is the screenwriter for 2018’s Lawless Lawyer. Playing Do Bae Man will be Ahn Bo Hyun who was seen in Yumi’s Cells and My Name in 2021. Jo Bo Ah will play the young prosecutor. This is the actress’ first drama since 2020’s Tale of the Nine-Tailed.

That’s all for this article!

Regarding February, I wanted to mention the dramas “Forecasting Love and Weather”, a beautiful romance with Park Min Young and Song Kang, as well as the thrillers “Grid” or even “Sponsor” which seem very nice. Finally, another legal drama: “Juvenile Justice”, available on Netflix.

For my part, January was rich in drama, I finished Work Later Drink Now which I loved, I also finished My Name which is a big crush. I also highly recommend Happiness and Jirisan. I will soon be finishing Snowdrop, which I find really interesting. A lot of quite stressful dramas in the end… I also started The One and Only, I might as well tell you that I cried a lot. I will surely focus on lighter dramas!

Thank you for reading my article and invite you, as usual, to discuss in the comments section the dramas that interested you, those that you recommend, or not…

See you in March!

“After frequenting the world of manga, anime and J-Pop, I finally fell into K-Pop thanks to SNSD in 2013. Since then, I have been learning about the different aspects of Korean culture, through the food, language, story… I got into dramas in 2016 thanks to BTS’ V and his role in ‘Hwarang’. By the way, my favorite genres are thrillers and historical dramas. Apart from that, I have a great passion for dance, and also for music!”
