In the beginning, her optimism and smile seemed so stretched and not real but later on, one can see her sincerity and one can’t help but fall in love with her- which is what happened to anyone who came across her. She worked hard to earn the recognition of her seniors and it came through. 

Shooting Stars

Director: Lee Su Hyun

Writer: Choi Young Woo

Year of release: 2022

OTT Platform: Netflix, Rakuten Viki


Shooting Stars Rating: 4/5  

This drama is full of crackhead energy and is the perfect romance comedy drama to watch. The drama is set in a talent agency in South Korea and it talks about the people behind your favorite K-Drama and K-Pop stars and how they struggle to make sure everything is running smoothly for the stars. Oh Han Byul is the head of the PR team and long time frenemy of Gong Tae Sung, a superstar. These two share a tenacious and hilarious relationship filled with childish fights, bickering and more. Soon, they both realize their feelings for each other and begin their love story but there is also a dark plot that brews in the background that presses on issues about malicious rumors, sasaengs (stalker-like fans), pressure in the industry and more. 

Thirty Nine 

Cast: Jeon Mi Do, Son Ye Jin, Kim Ju Hyun

Director: Kim Sang Ho

Writer: Yoo Yung Ah

Year of release: 2022

OTT Platform: Netflix

Thirty Nine Rating: 4/5 

The drama follows the lives of three lifelong friends- Cha Mi Jo, Jung Chan Young and Jang Joo Hee- who experience love, loss and pain as they get closer to 40 years. Cha Mi Jo is a dermatologist while Jung Chan Young is an acting coach and Jang Joo Hee manages a department store. These three friends are so close that they are always seen doing something together and their parents also treat them as their own children. The three of them experience love in different forms but that gives us an understanding of how life is short and we should enjoy it as much as we can before we lose it all. The emotional story coupled with their acting is an impeccable combination. The office romance brews Cha Mi Jo and Kim Sun Woo, fellow dermatologists who help each other through various troubles in work and in life. 

Business Proposal 

Cast: Kim Sejeong, Ahn Hyo Seop, Kim Min Gue and Seol In Ah

Director: Park Seon Ho

Writer: Han Seol Hee, Hong Bo Hee

Year of release: 2022

OTT Platform: Netflix


Business Proposal Rating: 4.5/5 

It tells the story of Shin Ha Ri, a cheery and fun-loving girl who goes on a blind date with her boss, Kang Tae Moo unknowingly on behalf of her best friend but here is the catch, she transforms into a different person, essentially fooling her boss. Many run ins later, the true identities are revealed and Kang Tae Moo is out for blood but as they spend time together, their true personalities come out and they realize how much similarities they have despite coming from different backgrounds. This is a typical K-Drama love story with false identities, fast-paced romance and even the second leads have an adorable love story. The drama is a breath of fresh air for 2022.
