What's Up In June Dramaland?

Updated: Jun 14, 2022

It's almost June 2022 and dramaland has been busy. There are a lot of releases this month, but I'm just going to focus on the eight dramas I'm excited to check out. Here are my thoughts on what dramaland is releasing next.


Releasing on June 1st

Eve


This revenge melo is Seo Ye-ji's first outing after her memorable performance in It's Okay To Not Be Okay. It's also her first drama after she got excoriated on social media over leaked private chats with ex-boyfriend, Kim Jung-hyun, a year back.


I'm really looking forward to this. We already know she can BRING IT with deadly onscreen charisma and I'm a sucker for revenge plans that involve lots of quiet manipulation and triggers personal crisis on all fronts.

Releasing on June 2nd

Doctor Lawyer


This will be my first So Ji-sub drama after Master's Sun and I'm quite sure he's perfectly cast as the ex surgeon turned lawyer.


And while I have no doubts that he'll be a genius at both medicine and law, I do have to wonder who's giving the medical malpractice lawyer any legitimate cases after he got his license cancelled due to medical malpractice? 😏


Also does anyone else read a synopsis like this drama's and immediately think they should just always cast Jang Hyuk? 😅

Releasing on June 3rd

Why Her?


I'm always happy to see Seo Hyun-jin on my screen and it's lovely to have Hwang In-yeop back in a drama as the protagonist.


The story also makes me think of a darker version of I Hear Your Voice with the younger, idealistic Hwang In-yeop providing a foil to Seo Hyun-jin's cynical ambitions.


My only concern for this drama is a possible romantic arc between the two protagonists while Seo Hyun-jin is a professor at Hwang In-yeop's law college. But I'm going to wait to judge the show on the actual story and not the bare-bones of the concept. 🤞

Releasing on June 6th

Link: Eat, Love, Die


Who can resist a pairing like this?


With Yeo Jin-goo and Moon Ga-young ready to light up my screen, I'm hoping for a sweet and funny romance with a touch of magic realism.


Getting strong fated-mates vibe! (Unless Moon Ga-young turns out to be Yeo Jin-goo's long lost twin. 😵‍💫 We haven't had one of those storylines in a while.)
