The month of June marks 6 months into 2023, a year which has given us gems like The Glory, Crash Course In Romance, Divorce Attorney Shin, Black Knight, to name a few. With June 2023 there seems to be a promising delivery of K-dramas with fan favourite actors like Ok Taecyeon, Woo Do Hwan, Shin Hye Sun, SNSD Yoona, 2PM Lee Jun Ho, Kim Tae Hee, making a comeback with interesting characters and stories. Let’s take a look at the upcoming June 2023 K-drama releases!

Think fight, action and thrill; think Bloodhounds. Woo Do Hwan and Lee Sang Yi lead this drama as a pair of talented boxers who get entangled in the shady world of private loan sharks, debts and moneylenders. The two, who are struggling financially themselves, are dragged into the sand pit of more money troubles before they even realize. How they face their circumstances and manage the situations forms the crux of the story. This action thriller releases exclusively on Netflix on June 9, 2023.

Girls’ Generation’s YoonA has shown great promise with her acting chops. Having led a successful career with hit movies like Exit and Confidential Assignment in her filmography, the singer-actor is returning to the small screen with a new romcom opposite 2PM’s Lee Jun Ho, who is no stranger to a great acting career himself. If you’re looking for an ‘enemies to lovers’ trope but in a K-drama version, then King the Land would make a good choice. YoonA plays the role of an upbeat hotelier and Junho plays the role of a chaebol heir. Their characters clash initially but soon are smitten by each other. King the Land is slated to release on June 17 on Netflix and JTBC.

Shin Hye Sun in fantasy dramas is indeed a delight. We loved her in Still 17 and Angel’s Last Mission Love and now she returns with another fantasy drama to win our hearts again with See You in my 19th Life. She plays the role of Ban Ji Eun who can remember all her past lives. Her 18th life is abruptly cut short, and she sets her mind to meet the people from her 18th life. She crosses paths with Moon Seo Ha (played Ahn Bo Hyun) the executive director of MI Hotels where she works. He shares a connection with her past, especially the car accident that cut her 18th life short. The drama is set to premiere on June 17 airing on TvN and Netflix simultaneously.

It has been a while since Kim Tae Hee appeared on the silver screen. She returns with a thrilling drama Lies Hidden in my Garden where she plays the role of Joo Ran, the wife of a wealthy doctor. When she starts getting weird smells from her garden, she begins her investigation which leads her to Sang Eun, a woman who has lived a hard life and is married to an abusive husband. Sang Eun one day receives a phone call telling her that her husband has died. How this murder connects the two women and what lies are actually hidden in Joo Ran’s garden forms the crux of the story. The drama is slated to air from June 19 onwards on ENA.

Kim Tae Ri has proven her acting chops with dramas like Twenty-Five Twenty-One, The Handmaiden, Mr. Sunshine, to name a few across various genres. This time, she turns to the horror thriller genre with Revenant. (Not to be confused with DiCaprio’s movie of the same name!) Kim Tae Ri plays the role of a young woman named San Young who is possessed by a demon. Mysterious deaths begin happening around her which leave her confused and shocked. When she tries to find answers, she crosses paths with Yeom Hae Sang (played by Oh Jung Se) a Korean folklore professor who can see demons and spirits. The two work together to get rid of the demon possessing San Young. Revenant is set to air from June 23 on SBS and Disney+.

Trust Kim Myung Soo when you want eccentric dramas with a splash of slice-of-life stories. Be it Miss Hammurabi or Secret Royal Agent, Kim Myung Soo has delivered stellar performances with each role. This time he returns to the small screen with the drama Numbers where he appears as Jang Ho Woo, an intelligent accountant who works at Taeil Accounting firm and is the only person in the firm who has only a high school diploma. Despite not having a degree, Ho Woo strives hard to earn his keep and prove that he deserves a place in the firm. Numbers will be released on MBC from June 23 onwards.

Ok Taecyeon recently made a blink-and-you-miss appearance in the teenage romcom XO Kitty. But that won’t be the case with his next new drama Heartbeat, where he appears as a vampire. Well, a half-vampire and a half-human named Sun Woo Hyeol, who desperately wants to become fully human. His paths cross with Joo In Hae, who runs a guesthouse and also does several other side jobs. The cold-hearted guesthouse owner soon begins to soften for this half-vampire half-human and the two fall in love. Heartbeat will premiere almost as the month of June comes to a close on June 26 on KBS2.
