10 Korean Dramas You Need to Be Watching in February 2016

Descendants of the Sun Korean Drama - Song Joong Ki

Here is the February edition of “Korean Dramas You Need to Be Watching.” This monthly series is meant to keep you updated on what’s happening in the world of Korean dramas so that you don’t miss out on anything!   We have a big premiere this month to go along with the many dramas that premiered in January.

Here are the kdramas you need to keep an eye out for in February 2016:

My Pick:

Descendants of the Sun

Descendants of the Sun Korean Drama - Song Joong Ki and Song Hye Kyo

Descendants of the Sun may very well be the most highly anticipated drama this year.  With Song Joong Ki making his big drama comeback after his return from the military, fans have been excited since the moment he was cast.  And it looks like we have quite a nice pairing with leading lady Song Hye Kyo.  Our duo will deal with relationships and love while also fighting for their lives.  This is a big production drama coming from the popular writer of Heirs and Secret Garden.  It certainly looks like it will be quite a ride!

Descendants of the Sun tells the story of a UN captain (Song Joong Ki) and a doctor (Song Hye Kyo) who fall in love while providing aid in a country dealing with a natural disaster and civil strife.

Descendants of the Sun is scheduled to premiere February 24 on KBS.


Come Back Ahjussi

Come Back Ahjussi Korean Drama - Rain and Oh Yeon Seo

Come Back Ahjussi tells the story of two middle-aged men who die and then come back to earth and inhabit the bodies of a young man (Rain) and young woman (Oh Yeon Seo).

Come Back Ahjussi is scheduled to premiere February 24 on SBS.


Cheese in the Trap

Cheese in the Trap Korean Drama - Park Hae Jin and Kim Go Eun

Cheese in the Trap stars Park Hae Jin and Kim Go Eun and is based off of a popular webtoon which depicts the lives and romance of students on a college campus.  Also in the cast are Seo Kang Joon as the second male lead and Lee Sung Kyung as his older sister.  Park Min Ji and Nam Joo Hyuk will portray our heroine’s best friends.

Cheese in the Trap airs Monday and Tuesday on tvN.

Moorim School

Moorim School Korean Drama - Lee Hyun Woo

Moorim School is an action romance drama set in a special school that teaches martial arts and emphasizes honor, faith, communication, and sacrifice.  Lee Hyun Woo plays a member of a top singing group who becomes a student at the school after a sharp fall from popularity.  Seo Ye Ji is our leading lady who is secretly attending the school while taking care of her father.  VIXX’s Hong Bin plays Lee Hyun Woo’s troublemaker roommate, and Jung Yoo Jin is the school chancellor’s daughter.

One More Happy Ending

One More Happy Ending Korean Drama - Jung Kyung Ho and Jang Na Ra

One More Happy Ending airs Wednesday and Thursday on MBC.

Madame Antoine

Madame Antoine Korean Drama - Sung Joon and Han Ye Seul

Madame Antoine tells the story of a fake fortune teller (Han Ye Seul) who  has the ability to read other people’s feelings and a top psychologist (Sung Joon) who is amazing at his job, but is insensitive to love.  The two will be involved in a “psychological game” with each other as they fall in love.

Madame Antoine airs Friday and Saturday on JTBC.


Signal Korean Drama - Lee Je Hoon

Neighborhood Hero

Neighborhood Hero Korean Drama - Park Shi Hoo

Neighborhood Hero tells the story of a former black-ops agent (Park Shi Hoo) who is now a bar owner.  After a spike in crime, he decides to step in and help out as a sort of night time vigilante.  Along the way, he brings in a young man (Lee Soo Hyuk) who has dreams of becoming a police officer, but is unable to pass the exam.

Neighborhood Hero is airs Saturday and Sunday on OCN.


Remember Korean Drama - Yoo Seung Ho

Remember tells the story of an attorney named Seo Jin Woo (Yoo Seung Ho) who suffers from a condition called hyperthymesia which results in having an autobiographical memory where he can remember everything in extreme detail.  When his father is falsely accused of a crime and sentenced to death, he sets out to clear his name with the help of his childhood friend (Park Min Young).  But then Jin Woo’s excellent memory starts to fade, and it’s a race against time to help his father while he still can.

Remember airs Wednesday and Thursday on SBS.

Six Flying Dragons

Six Flying Dragons Korean Drama - Yoo Ah In

Six Flying Dragons is a historical about the people who were a part of the founding of the Joseon dynasty.  Yoo Ah In plays Prince Lee Bang Won and Shin Se Kyung portrays his love interest Boon Yi.  Kim Myung Min plays a character named Jung Do Jun who is at odds politically with Lee Bang Won.

Six Flying Dragons airs Monday and Tuesday on SBS.

Master of Trade: Inn 2015 will wrap up its run later this month.  The 50 episode melodrama Glamorous Temptation is also still moving along.

February is a slow month in terms of new premieres.  But we had plenty of dramas that premiered in January to choose from.  Of course, I’m super excited about Descendants of the Sun.  I also really hope Come Back Ahjussi is a fun ride.

Which dramas are you enjoying or looking forward to in February?

Make sure to get caught up because there are more interesting dramas coming your way in March!

      Me too! I’ve been waiting for Descendants of the Sun for sooo long, lol. I’m going to start Cheese in the Trap after I wrap up the couple dramas I’m watching now. It looks really interesting.

      I’m also planning to try Madame Antoine and One More Happy Ending too. A lot of people seemed to think the first couple eps of One More Happy Ending were really funny. It looks like it has a unique comedy style, so that may play into whether I like it not. Lots of good dramas out right now though 🙂

          I’m watching Reply 1988 and Three Musketeers right now. The plan is to start Remember once I finish Three Musketeers this weekend and then Cheese in the Trap once I complete Reply 1988. I’m halfway through Reply so I should be able to start Cheese in the Trap in about 1-2 weeks. I’m pretty excited about that one because it does look really good!

      It really is so hard to wait! 2016 has started off with a lot of dramas that interest me, so I have quite a long list already 🙂 At least I get to start a couple of dramas that are only a couple weeks away from conclusion this weekend, so hopefully that will help keep me entertained until I’m ready for this latest batch!


  3. I’m currently watching Remember – War of the Sone and My Secret Hotel! Can’t wait to watch Descendants of the Sun, and Comeback Ajussi!!! But I will watch Madame Antoine, Cheese in the Trap, and Moorim School very soon!!! 🙂
