Hwang Jung Eum and Park Seo Joon will return to K-Drama in the upcoming romantic comedy, "She Was Pretty." Their starring roles in "She Was Pretty" follow the success of the psychological series, "Kill Me, Heal Me" which received solid ratings and critical acclaim.
Hwang Jung Eum portrays Kim Hye Jin, a girl who was once incredibly beautiful and wealthy. When she was younger, she was the envy of her peers. Park Seo Joon is Ji Sung Joon, a successful man who was once unattractive and poor. Sung Joon used to have a crush on Hye Jin, but she shunned him because he was unappealing. The tables are turned when Hye Jin and her family fall upon dire straits while Seo Joon is a thriving editor.
Super Junior's Choi Siwon also stars in the drama, in his final role before serving in the military.
"She Was Pretty" premieres on September 16. The series will air on Wednesdays and Thursdays in the time slot currently occupied by "Scholar Who Walks the Night."
DramaFever will simulcast "She Was Pretty" for audiences in North America.
Fans of action dramas will be thrilled to watch the upcoming jTBC series, "D-Day." "D-Day" focuses on the plight of medical personnel and first-responders who struggle to maintain peace, as Seoul deals with a natural disaster.
Kim Young Kwang follows his sweet-tempered role in "Pinocchio" with his portrayal of Lee Hae Sung, a man who is thrust into the disaster. Jung So Min abandons the wide-eyed ingenue image she cultivated in dramas like "Playful Kiss" and "Big Man" to portray Jung Ddol Mi.
The series also serves as the K-Drama return of INFINITE's Lee Sung Yeol whose last acting role was in "Hi! School Love On."
"D-Day" premieres on September 18. The drama will air on Fridays and Saturdays at 8:40 p.m. KST.
Currently airing dramas to watch in September 2015 include "20 Again" and the hit series, "Yong Pal."
"20 Again" stars Choi Ji Woo as Ha No Ra, a 38-year-old woman, who returns to college after abandoning her academic career to be a stay-at-home mother. She comedically struggles with her inability to fit in with her son, Kim Min Soo (Kim Min Jae) and his girlfriend, Oh Hye Mi (A Pink's Son Na Eun).
In addition to her attempts to be accepted as a returning student, No Ra is placed in the awkward situation of running into her husband (Choi Won Young) and her ex-boyfriend (Lee Sang Yoon), who are professors at the college.
"20 Again" premiered on August 28 and airs on tvN in the Friday-Saturday 8:30 p.m. KST time slot previously occupied by "Oh My Ghost."
Audiences in North American can watch "20 Again" on DramaFever.
SBS' "Yong Pal" continues to garner high ratings and is a series that should be on the top of all must-watch K-Drama lists. The medical series will continue to air through October on Wednesdays and Thursdays in the 9:55 p.m. KST time slot.
"Yong Pal" is simulcast on DramaFever.
