This August, travel through time with Viu through two new exciting Korean dramas – Live Up to Your Name, Dr. Neo and Manhole – starring Kim Nam Gil, Kim Ah Joong, JYJ’s Kim Jae Joong as well as the ever popular Uee who played the female lead in Marriage Contract last year.
In tvN’s Live Up to Your Name, Dr. Neo, fans will get to see Kim Nam Gil play the role of a talented but frustrated acuptuncturist from the Joseon era who travels 400 years into the future and butt heads with a prickly doctor. In fact, this new drama marks Kim Nam Gil’s long-awaited return to the small screen since he acted in Bad Guy three years ago.
Meanwhile, Manhole stars Kim Jae Joong who goes back in time to stop the marriage of his lifelong love interest played by Uee. Replacing Queen for Seven Days’ timeslot, this new KBS drama is also Jae Joong’s comeback drama after his military enlistment. Fans of 2PM’s Taecyeon can also rejoice as the star returns in a brand new drama titled Save Me. In this upcoming series, Taecyeon plays the unemployed son of the governor of Mooji County, who together with his friends, attempts to rescue a transfer student from a religious cult group.
