The 2020 Year of the Rat has begun. The three ground-wave broadcasting stations are preparing new dramas and here is the line-up for the first half of the year.
"Dr. Romantic" comes back for the first time in 4 years with a second season. The first season holds a record viewership of 27.6% and therefore, "Dr. Romantic 2" is the most looked forward to drama of the year.
"Marriage Blue" couple Ok Taecyeon and Lee Yeon-hee reunite in 6 years for MBC's "The Game: Towards Zero". MBC suffered last year, and attention is focused on whether the first drama of the year will turn things around.
"The Game: Towards Zero" is the story of a prophet named Tae-pyeong, who sees the moment right before death, and a homicide detective named Joon-yeong finding the truth behind a series of murders. Ok Taecyeon is Kim Tae-pyeong, the prophet who sees death through others' eyes, and Lee Yeon-hee is Seo Joon-yeong, the homicide detective.
Come February is SBS, Kim Hye-soo and Ju Ji-hoon's "Hyena", the drama to follow "Stove League". "Hyena" is a survival drama about lawyers who represent the top 1% of high class society, and the teaser was released at the 2019 SBS Drama Awards.
March is when the most ground-wave dramas begin.
2019 MBC Drama Awards Best Actor winner Kim Dong-wook's "Find Me in Your Memory" begins on the 18th of March. It is about a romance between a next-generation anchor with hyperthymesia (highly superior autobiographical memory) who remembers things all the time, and a rising star; a 'scandal maker' who forgets the most important time in life.
Competing with "Find Me in Your Memory" is "Meow, the Secret Boy" on KBS 2TV. "Meow, the Secret Boy" is a romantic fantasy drama about a cat who turns into a man and a woman who is like a dog, starring rising star Kim Myung-soo and Shin Ye-eun. The drama begins on the 25th of March.
"Once Again" rivals with "Meow, the Secret Boy" on the weekends on KBS 2TV. "Once Again" is a story about love and family based on the Song Family, who never have a peaceful day. Chun Ho-jin and Lee Jung-eun are a couple in the drama, and it stars Oh Yoon-ah, Lee Min-jung and Lee Sang-yeob.
Choi Kang-hee returns for the first time in 2 years with "Good Casting" on SBS this April. "Good Casting" is a comedy dealing with spying missions and corporate espionage. It stars Choi Kang-hee, Kim Ji-young, and Yoo In-young in the leading roles as the three field agents of a fairly dysfunctional agency team. It follows "Nobody Knows".
In May comes "Fix You", a new KBS 2TV drama. "Fix You" is a medical drama that questions the foundation of happiness through psychiatrists and their patients. Shin Ha-kyun plays a doctor once again for the first time in 9 years. His partner, Jung So-min, is a musical actress wrapped in passion and ambition.
