Which one of these projects are you most excited to see?
My personal thoughts- by Jass K.
Wow. The lineup is truly no joke, the competition is on.
I remember reading about Disney+ plans to advance into the Asian market but I didn’t know their k-collection would be this extensive. We’re in October and we already have at least news about 20 kdramas confirmed for 2022. This is fascinating.
With how much of a hit squid game turned out to be, I think more OTT services will begin the battle to capture our attention. Most of these seem like high-budget kdramas.
The ones that intrigue me the most are “Kiss Six Sense” and “Moving.” Its been ages since we’ve seen Jo In Sung in a drama, its about damn time, and I can’t wait. “Kiss Six Sense” is also an interesting idea especially since Korea is more of a conservative society so its not like the woman can activate her powers easily by asking around for kisses.
