The First Responders season 2 has Kim Rae-won, Son Ho-jun, Gong Seung-yeon in the lead cast. It is a SBS show, that is streaming globally on Disney+.

The three team up to save people against time in death-defying situations. 

2. My Dearest

With Namgoong Min, Ahn Eun-jin in the lead cast, this period drama is set during the rule of the Joseon dynasty in Korea (1392–1897). It revolves around a romance between a mysterious aristocrat (One Dollar Lawyer’s Namgoong Min) and a confident noblewoman (Ahn Eun-jin of The Good Bad Mother).

In 1637 when the Chinese Qing dynasty invades Korea and its a time when all hope seems lost, the two fall in love. As the couple meet and get to know each other, the aristocrat holds on to a dangerous secret and the noblewoman begins to break out of her shell. 

3. Moving

The Lead cast of Moving has Ryoo Seung-ryong, Han Hyo-joo, Zo In-sung. With a budget of 65 billion won (US$51 million), Moving is the most expensive Korean production of all time. It is a superhero action-drama that was adapted from Kang Full’s webtoon of the same name.

It centers on three high school students who have superpowers passed down from their parents, such as the capacity for flight, quick healing, and lightning-fast movement. While their parents battle to prevent their skills from being used by those with evil intentions, the trio tries to conceal their abilities. Ryoo Seung-ryong, Han Hyo-joo, Zo In-sung, Cha Tae-hyun, and Ryoo Seung-bum are among the talented cast members.

If more than 50% of voters choose to execute them, an enigmatic figure known only as “Dog Mask” will carry out their request.

In this universe, the police are pursuing Dog Mask, including a detective played by Park Hae-jin and a cyber bureau police officer played by Lim Ji-yeon. In the drama, Park Sung-woong plays a legal expert who was imprisoned for killing the rapist who attacked his daughter and is known to his fellow inmates as the “Professor.”

With Ra Mi-ran, Uhm Ji-won, as the lead cast Cold-Blooded Intern is worth looking out for. Ra Mi-ran portrays a talented salesperson who postpones her job in order to start a family. She wants to rejoin the workforce after parenting that child for seven years.
