The 2020 Golden Line-Up - "Dr. Romantic", "Kingdom" and "Secret Forest"

2020/01/06 Source

Legendary dramas are coming back with second seasons.

Every broadcasting agency has a new line-up to present, and they are heightening anticipation. Meanwhile, dramas which were the most popular amongst viewers are coming back with season 2.

To start with, SBS's "Dr. Romantic 2" begins on the 6th on SBS. The first season in 2016, "Dr. Romantic", holds a record of 27.6%, proving the potential of medical dramas. Han Suk-kyu in the title role perfectly pulled off the eccentric doctor look and Seo Hyun-jin and Yoo Yeon-seok helped him make a well-made drama. In season 2, Han Suk-kyu comes back with Lee Sung-kyung and Ahn Hyo-seop with a new story. Hopefully, "Dr. Romantic 2" continues the good vibes of its previous drama "VIP".

Coming up in March is the Netflix Original Drama "Kingdom - Season 2". Starring Ju Ji-hoon, Bae Doona and Ryu Seung-ryong, "Kingdom" raised expectations with the storyline of a zombie sageuk that delves into the causes of a plague. The second season had come into plan earlier on and the first season ended at the brim of the cause of the plague, sparking curiosity. "Kingdom" not only was selected as one of the top favorite works by Korean viewers, but it also received great attention worldwide. Season 2 was carried out under the full faith of the Netflix Headquarters.

Later towards the year comes tvN drama "Secret Forest 2". It's a new season for the first time in 3 years since "Secret Forest" in 2017. "Secret Forest 2" is about a lonely prosecutor who has no feelings and a righteous and warm-hearted detective who delve into the truth behind the murder of a prosecutor. The series formed numerous hardcore fans during the first broadcast. In particular, the close and detailed screenplay was highly praised, while Lee Soo-yeon-I won the TV drama prize at the 54th Baeksang Arts Awards for "Secret Forest" in 2018. Added to this are the feats and delicate production of famous actors such as Cho Seung-woo, Bae Doona, Lee Joon-hyuk and Yoo Jae-myung, making the drama one of the most representative tvN dramas.

The reason why season dramas are hot this year is not because of the new seasons. It is due to the expectation of viewers to watch more of well-made dramas with solid acting, screenplay and production. They might not be as good as the first seasons, but they are worth looking forward to. The viewership and popularity of the dramas are also anticipated, as they already have solid fan bases.
