We already love K-dramas, but there’s something extra special about seeing K-pop idols flex their acting muscles and show a new talent when they’re cast in tv shows. Here’s a few of the highly anticipated dramas coming in the next few months that will feature idols.
1. 100 Days Husband
EXO fans are buzzing about this show that’s set to feature D.O in his first lead K-drama role. He plays a prince who disappears but returns 100 days later without explanation. Nam Ji Hyun plays a private investigator who runs the first private detective agency in Joseon.
The show is currently being filmed and is set for broadcast in the second half of 2018.
2. Rich Man
Another one for EXO fans, this time it’s leader Suho who’s also taking the lead role in this 16-episode show. He plays IT company CEO Lee Yoo Chan who suffers from faceblindness, until he meets a girl who changes his life.
Rich Man will start airing in Korea from May 9.
3. About Time
About Time features Weightlifting Fairy’s Lee Sung Kyung in the lead role as a woman who has the ability to see the lifespan of other people. She meets a man who can stop time and they fall in love. Her younger brother is being played by SF9’s Rowoon, and is set to be a comical secondary character.
