June seems to be the season for bringing back well loved k-dramas! This month will see four popular titles return for new seasons, including one of the most highly anticipated shows of the year — the second season of Hospital Playlist. We’ve also got the third season of the ratings monster Penthouse, the second season of Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce), and the fourth season of the crime thriller Voice.
Brand new romance and slice-of-life dramas are also in the line-up for this jam-packed month. So much to choose from! Which ones are you planning to watch?
What happens to the Hera Palace Club now that our cast of colorful characters are behind bars? The third season of this makjang promises more unpredictable twists and turns, as Cheon Seo-jin (Kim So-yeon), Oh Yoon-hee (Eugene), and Joo Dan-tae (Uhm Ki-joon) seek revenge. The “final war” begins on June 4. (Don't know what a makjang is? Read our awesome primer.)
Sweet & Sour
This isn't really a k-drama, but we know you won't mind. Love can be both sweet and bitter in this movie featuring some of our favorite actors. Chae Soo-bin (I’m Not a Robot) and Jang Ki-yong (Search: WWW) think they’re on their way to happily ever after, but they’re about to find out that with distractions, temptations, and an unexpected spark with someone new — Jung Soo-jung (Prison Playbook) — even the sweetest love can turn sour. Streaming on Netflix on June 4. Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce) 2
The first season of this makjang introduced us to three women in their 30s, 40s, and 50s who had their marriages fall apart because of their husbands’ infidelity. Now in the second season, we’ll see Boo Hye- ryung (Lee Ga-ryung), Sa Pi-young (Park Joo-mi), and Lee Si-eun (Jeon Soo-kyeong) try to either save their marriage or seek revenge. The drama starts streaming on June 12.
