Reason 3: If you're all about intense detective dramas that keep you on the edge of your seat guessing, then Voice is the drama of 2017 for you! 

Starring Jang Hyuk and Lee Ha Na

When a serial killer takes the lives of their loved ones, a fallen detective and voice profiler work together at an emergency call center to capture the murderer. However, they must deal not only with the guile of an elusive killer, but also with their own animosity towards each other. The detective feels the voice profiler was responsible for letting the murderer get away many years ago.


Reason 4: Lee Young Ae is finally making her drama comeback in 2017 with the epic romantic historical Saimdang: Light's Diary!

Starring Lee Young Ae and Song Seung Hun

Lee Young Ae (Jewel in the Palace) and Song Seung Hun (Autumn in My Heart, When a Man Loves) star in a historical drama about the untold story of the artist who defied the limitations of her society and became a legend. Seo Ji Yoon (Lee Young Ae) is a Korean art history lecturer who discovers the diary of historical figure Shin Saimdang (also Lee Young Ae), an artist and mother of famed 16th century Korean Confucian scholar Yulgok. In Seo Ji Yoon’s world, Saimdang is a legend who is even on the 50,000 won bill. In Joseon times, that legend was still in the making and Saimdang was simply known as a bold and talented artist, poet, and calligraphist. Those qualities were enough to leave a lasting impression on Lee Gyeom (Song Seung Hun), a fictional character who was basically the Renaissance Man of the dynasty as a talented writer, musician, and dancer in his own right. From the moment he met the young Saimdang, he dedicated his life to purely her love. As Seo Ji Yoon learns more about Saimdang through her diary, she begins to unravel the secret behind a historical painting and unearths the unbelievable truth behind one of history’s biggest mysteries.
