Will Song Joong-ki and Son Ye-jin be able to revive JTBC dramas in 2022 after an unsuccessful 2021?

Will JTBC dramas, which fell into a slump in ratings last year, be able to raise their status this year?

First of all, “Thirty, Nine” starring Son Ye-jin, Jeon Mi-do, and Kim Ji-hyun is emerging as a highly expected work. “Thirty, Nine” is a real human romance drama that deals with the in-depth story of friendship, love, and life of three friends who are just around the corner of reaching the age of 40.

As actor Son Ye-jin chose this to be her comeback two years after “Crash Landing on You,” and the casting news of Jeon Mi-do, who is currently a trendy actor thanks to “Hospital Playlist” is drawing attention, expectations are high on what kind of synergy and chemistry the three actors will show. With the drama set to air next month following “Artificial City”, many are also expecting Kim Ji-hyun’s transformation from “Artificial City” to “Thirty, Nine”.

“Fly High Butterfly”, starring Kim Hyang-ki, Choi Daniel, and Oh Yoon-ah, is a drama that depicts the story of people who love their own selves and those who try to love themselves from now on based on the background of the beauty salon that can be anywhere and anyone can visits. The drama will show the story of a hair designer and an intern who turns their customers into butterflies. The organization is being coordinated for the first half of the year.

Another anticipated series is “Cruel Story of Office Romance,” starring Park Min-young and Song Kang. This series is an office romance drama about the work and love of the people from the Meteorological Administration, which is hotter than tropical nights and more unpredictable than local heavy rains. The expectations are high for the harmony of romance queen Park Min-young and Song Kang. Its airing time is being discussed to be in the first half of this year.

Insider”, starring Kang Ha-neul and Lee Yoo-young, is also a remarkable name.

Thanks to the popularity of the previous work, “The Good Detective 2” will also feature original members Son Hyun-joo and Jang Seung-jo. Viewers are focusing on whether the film will be able to continue its popularity in season 2 as its ratings rose from 3.9% (episode 1) to 7.5% (finale) in season 1 (based on audience measurement performed nationwide by Nielsen Korea).

In addition, the British drama remake “Cleaning Up”, which Yum Jung-ah, Jeon So-min and Yum Hye-ran are strong candidates for, is drawing attention as a drama about cleaners at a securities company who struggle to carve out a new fate after overhearing about insider trading.

Meanwhile, the filming of “Until The Morning Comes” starring Han Suk-kyu and Jung Yoo-mi was completed until episode 8, but it has been suspended indefinitely due to COVID-19 and reorganization. Initially, the drama was expected to air right after “Snowdrop”, but it has been embroiled in controversy over beautifying the Communist Party. It will not be easy for “Until The Morning Comes” to be broadcast this year as it is not included in the 2022 lineup that was unveiled recently by JTBC.
