We know you love a good K-drama, and there's plenty on the horizon to peak your interest. But if you're a K-pop fan then there's double the excitement waiting for you, with plenty of upcoming dramas starring some of your fave idols!

Here's just some of the dramas you should add to your list...

Meow The Secret Boy

This upcoming drama stars INFINITE's L as a cat who transforms into a man, and his amusing rom-com shenanigans with Shin Ye Eun's character, who has a puppy-like personality. It looks like the perfect light-hearted show to whisk you away!


GOT7's Jinyoung has already shown off his acting skills in a number of dramas, most recently as the lead in He Is Psychometric. In this new drama, we follow a couple who were one another's first loves in college before parting ways, and reuniting years later. Jinyoung will be playing the younger version of the male lead, and the drama will switch between past and present.


This web drama from the creators of A-TEEN will star UP10TION and X1 member Kim Woo Seok in the lead role. The drama will focus on a group of 20-year-olds as they figure out their dreams while becoming independent for the first time in their lives. Woo Seok will be playing a character who's just started living out of home.

A Girl's World

Webtoon fans, you'll be familiar with this one! Based off the Naver webtoon that has been downloaded over 7 million times, this web drama will be about high school friends growing up and experiencing all the highs and lows of teenage life. There's more than one idol in this one: Oh My Girl's Arin and former JBJ member Kwon Hyun Bin will both be in it!

Eccentric! Chef Moon

This drama is a bit of a change! Set in a village, it stars Go Won Hee as a famous fashion designer with amnesia, who learns all about love and success after meeting a star chef, played by none other than Shinhwa's Eric. It's set to begin airing in South Korea from March 27.

Somehow Family

This ensemble cast drama has a bunch of heavyweight actors you'd recognise from dramas past, like Sung Dong Il and Jin Hee Kyung. It's about a group of people living in a boarding house who all work for the same airline at an airport. A sort of variety drama, it's a sitcom that also stars some familiar idols: CLC's Eunbin and PENTAGON's Yeo One.

Private Life

Girls' Generation's Seohyun has been confirmed to star in this new drama alongside Go Kyung Pyo and Kim Hyo Jin. It's about a con artist who accidentally ends up involved in some deep national matters and has to compete against corporations. Seohyun will be playing a con artist who commits fraud, and this will also be Go Kyung Pyo's first drama since his military discharge!

Mermaid Prince

ASTRO's Moonbin will star alongside Jung Shin Hye in this fantasy romance web drama. Moonbin will play a mysterious guest house manager who meets Jung Shin Hye when she comes there for a graduation trip. Not much else is known but we can't wait to see Moonbin in a new role since his performance in Moment of 18.
