[Press Release] Delight in a "Daily Dose of Sunshine" and Other Korean Titles This November

As the year winds down and the days get colder, cozy up under the covers with these new titles this month that are sure to bring warmth through wholesome narratives, heart-pumping action and belly-aching laughs.


"Daily Dose of Sunshine"

Launching today, "Daily Dose of Sunshine" is a heartwarming series that delves into the life of Da-eun (Park Bo-young), a compassionate young nurse who joins the psychiatric ward - the first place in the hospital where the sun casts its glow every morning.

As she encounters patients grappling with mental illnesses ranging from social anxiety to bipolar and delusional disorders, she learns to navigate their complex worlds and unique struggles with empathy.

Written by Lee Nam-gyoo ("Behind your Touch", "The Light in Your Eyes") and directed by Lee Jae-gyoo "(All of Us Are Dead", "Intimate Strangers"), the series also stars Yeon Woo-jin, Jang Dong-yoon and Lee Jung-eun.

Renowned for being one of Korea's best storytellers, Lee wanted to demystify the grim impression of psychiatric wards and talk about mental health issues in an approachable way. "I thought we all might need a wholesome story that could comfort us", he says.


"Castaway Diva"

In a similarly moving tale of growth and resilience, Castaway Diva follows Seo Mok-ha, who embarks on a journey to become a singer after being stranded on a deserted island for 15 years.

Park Eun-bin, who starred in chart-topping series "Extraordinary Attorney Woo", returns to the screen as Mok-ha to charm audiences with her charisma.

Directed by Oh Choong-hwan ("Hotel Del Luna", "Big Mouth") and written by Park Hye-ryeon ("Start Up", "While You Were Sleeping - 2017"), the series started streaming on October 28 with new episodes released every week.

"Believer 2"

Even if heartwarming shows are not your cup of tea, this November's lineup has something for everyone - including action junkies.

A must-see action crime film, "Believer 2" follows Won Ho (Cho Jin-woong), a detective on a deadly mission to hunt down the elusive ring leader of Asia's largest drug cartel, Mr. Lee.

After a bloody fight at Yongsan Station, Won-ho arrests Brian (Cha Seung-won), who claims to be Mr Lee, but loses Rak (Oh Seung-hoon), whom the detective believes to be the real head honcho. More drama unfolds when Big Knife (Han Hyo-joo), a ruthless manager of the cartel in China, arrives in Korea.

The film premiered at the Busan International Film Festival last month and will be released on Netflix on November 17. This midquel to the 2018 box-office hit Believer promises more thrilling fight scenes and new characters that breathe life into the action.

Comedy Royale

In for some laughs? Expect to double over in laughter with Comedy Royale, an unscripted series that pits 20 hand-picked Korean comedy icons against one another as they battle for a chance to host their own Netflix show.

Launching on November 28, the series takes on the novel mid-form format, with a running time of 30 minutes and a shorter production time, allowing topics to be presented in timely and relevant ways.
