The Most Anticipated K-Dramas Of 2016

BY Adrienne Stanley | Dec 31, 2015 06:51 PM EST

Song Joon Ki and Song Hye Kyo welcomed 2016 with a warm greeting and the first full-length preview of their highly anticipated series, "Descendants of the Sun," during the 2015 KBS Drama Awards.

"Descendants of the Sun" trades out the conventional standard of live-taping, as one of the first Korean dramas to be filmed in entirety prior to its air date.

While the preview is less than two minutes in length, each scene is a cinematic feast that is on-par with the explosive sequences of dramas like "IRIS" and "City Hunter."

In a previously released segment that is included in the footage, Song Joon Ki and Song Hye Kyo ooze chemistry. 

The fictitious landscape of the war-ravaged nation, Uruk, captivates viewers through the sophisticated camera-work of Lee Eung Bok, whose previous directorial credits include "Secret Love," "School 2013," and the "Dream High" series. 

"Descendants of the Sun" is slated to premiere in February 2016 on KBS2 in the time slot currently occupied by "The Merchant Gaekju 2015."

Rain will return to Korean drama, following his lackluster but much-hyped post-military renaissance in "My Lovely Girl" with "Goodbye, My Beloved." 

The 16-episode series which is also referred to by the working title, "Hello, My Precious,"  will likely air on SBS in March 2016. 

Kim Woo Bin and Miss A's Suzy are an unlikely pair in KBS2's "Uncontrollably Fond." The series marks the K-Drama comeback of both stars, with Kim making a notable television return following the successful of his 2015 coming-of-age flick, "Twenty." 

He portrays Shin Joon Young, a top actor and pop vocalist, who is reunited with his childhood sweetheart No Eul. Suzy is No Eul, a documentary producer-director who cherishes money over virtuous acts. 

Cable network tvN kicks off 2016 with strong programming including the adaptation of the popular web comic, "Cheese in the Trap" and the investigative series, "Signal."
