11 March K-Drama Premieres You Should Look Out For

We’re seeing a lot of new dramas premiering in March! And there’s a little something for everyone — a lil’ legal, a lil’ rom-com, a lil’ family, a lil’ medical, and a lil’ sageuk. So to make all our lives a little easier, here is a handy round-up of most of the shows that are airing soon, if not already!

My Husband, Mr. Oh!

Air date: March 3, on MBC
Duration: 24 episodes (2 eps a day), 70 mins each
Kim Kang Woo, UEE, Jung San Hoon, Han Sun Hwa

Plot: In order to to avoid the social stigma of being a single, working woman in her mid-30s, Han Seung Joo (UEE) decides to marry Oh Jak Doo (Kim Kang Woo), a man who grew up in the countryside. What will happen between an ambitious, career-driven woman and a down-to-earth naturalist?

What to look forward to: I can already imagine all the awkward hi-jinks that is going to happen. And it’s a nice twist to see a gender reversal on the usual rich-man-naive-woman trope.

Plot: Loosely based on French novel “Dangerous Liaisons,” the drama follows Kwon Si Hyun (Woo Do Hwan), a ladies’ man who can seduce any girl, until he meets his match in Eun Tae Hee (Red Velvet’s Joy), who has no interest in love. Will these characters be able to navigate this messy and dangerous game of love and seduction, and come out unscathed?

What to look forward to: Have you seen the poster?! That sizzling chemistry! “Dangerous Liaisons” was very seductive and even scandalous, so it will be interesting to see how these relatively young actors tackle this storyline.

Cast: Lee Joon Hyuk, Lee Yoo Bi, Jang Dong Yoon

Plot: “You Who Forgot Poetry” is a slice-of-life/medical-drama that follows the lives of a medical team, including physical therapists and radiology technicians. One of the character’s first love is poetry, so each episode will feature a poem that relates to the hardships they are facing and helps them through it.

What to look forward to: The concept itself sounds fascinating, and it’s written by the same team as “Drinking Solo,” so we know the drama is in good hands. Plus, Defconn continuously teased this drama! Can’t wait to see how he does!

Plot: Jang Geun Suk takes on two roles in this drama, one as Sa Do Chan, a swindler who failed to become a prosecutor; and Baek Joon Soo, a prosecutor who is a stickler for rules. Han Ye Ri plays Oh Ha Ra, a positive and sharp-witted character who has the skills to overcome issues that come with being born in a low-income family.

What to look forward to: The production staff has been quoted in saying that the cast has shown explosive chemistry. And when was the last time we saw Jang Guen Suk with such short hair?!
