The Sound of Magic
Ji Chang Wook is back in the small screen with this fantasy musical drama television series. The Sound of Magic is based on a webtoon called Annarasumanara which was popular in Naver. It revolves around the realistic life of Yoon Ah yi who once in her childhood years had dreamt to become a magician. Since life knocked, she was exposed to the realities of the world and set aside her dream. She just wants to grow up and earn money to provide for her family. This all changed one day when she met an adult magician, Lee Eul whose purpose is to bring magic back in her life. This stars Ji Chang Wook Choi Sung Eun and Hwang In Youp. The first episode will air on May 6.
This gripping and realistic Korean television series will chronicle the love lost and recovering of life for the daughter of a trillionaire. Coming from a chaebol family. Lee Ra El played by Seo Yea Ji finds herself in the center of a divorce lawsuit that shocked the entire nation.

So Ji Sub proves that he still got this! As one of Korea’s leading actor, he is set to appear in the medical, political drama Doctor Lawyer.

Kiss Sixth Sense
Kiss Sixth Sense is probably the drama I am excited the most to watch. This series is based on the web novel of the same name which was published between 2019 to 2020. Unlike other sixth sense related films or series, this is a romantic and funny one! Ye Sool (played by Seo Ji Hye) has always have the talent of seeing a person’s future through a kiss. One day, she accidentally kissed her boss’s neck and saw their future together – hot and steamy in bed! She stars alongside Yoon Kye Sang, Kim Ji Suk and Lee Joo Yeon. This drama is set to air on May 25.
Ahhh! So excited! I am glad it is now May! Which one of these are you watching next? Definitely Kiss Sixth Sense and Eve for me!
