After delighting Korean drama fans worldwide with its Original series, My First First Love, which launched on April 18 worldwide, Netflix has announced two brand new drama series to be launched globally in May - Abyss and One Spring Night. Romance, fantasy and your favorite Korean stars will keep you entertained and in love this summer.
Abyss is a fantasy drama that tells a story of two people who are brought back to life with the help of a soul-reviving marble called ‘Abyss.’ Go Se-yeon and Cha Min, respectively played by the Korean rom-com goddess Park Bo-young (from Strong Girl Bong-soon and Oh My Ghost) and a rising star Ahn Hyo-seop, are revived with completely different appearances. Go Se-yeon is a strikingly beautiful prosecutor who is reincarnated as a lawyer with an ordinary look. Cha Min is a smart, rich yet unattractive businessman who is reborn with the most handsome face ever. As the story unfolds, Go and Cha encounter a series of twists and turns, trying to get to the bottom of their own deaths and revival.
Abyss will launch two episodes weekly in most English-speaking territories and Asia from May 7. In Canada, Argentina, Sweden and Japan, all episodes will be released on June 26, while the same goes for Hong Kong and Macau on July 1. In the rest of the world, two episodes will launch weekly from May 16 (12 a.m., PST).
One Spring Night is a story of two people whose uneventful lives become shaken by unexpected love, leading them to seek what their hearts truly desire, instead of being fixated on faith. Lee Jeong-in, played by Han Ji-min who is well known for her leading roles in Yi San, Familiar Wife and The Light in Your Eyes, is a librarian who knows how to appreciate the small things in life. Jung Hae-in, whom Netflix fans fell in love with for his role in Something in the Rain, plays Yu Ji-ho, a well-mannered pharmacist who tends not to hesitate when it comes to love.
The series is directed by Ahn Pan Suk who is known for his realistic storytelling of love and emotions in such television dramas as Behind the White Tower and Secret Affair. For One Spring Night, Ahn has collaborated once again with writer Kim Eun whom he worked together for the mega-hit drama Something in the Rain.
One Spring Night will launch two episodes weekly in Asia and most English-speaking territories from May 22, one hour after its television broadcast in Korea. In the U.S., Mexico, Norway and Japan, all episodes will be released on July 12, while in the rest of the world, two episodes will be on the service weekly from June 1.
