4. Manhole

Premieres on DramaFever: Jan. 26

For 28 years, Bong Pil (Kim Jae Joong) has loved only one woman: childhood friend Kang Soo Jin (Uee). But Soo Jin is getting married to a pharmacist fiance in a week, and there seems to be nothing he can do about it. One day, by pure coincidence, Bong Pil slips down a manhole and discovers he can time travel back and forth through it. Will a strange turn of fate bring Bong Pil and Kang Soo Jin together?

5. Andante

Meet Lee Shi Kyung (EXO's Kai), a teenage computer gamer and local legend who knows little outside of his computer screen. His biggest challenge yet? Moving to the countryside and doing the one thing he completely dreads: interacting with actual people. He'll need an entirely different set of skills if he hopes to survive in his new rural surroundings. But for someone who shies away from any social contact, he keeps running into the same two people in his new high school: Park Ga Ram (Baek Chul Min), a warm-hearted student who dreams of becoming a doctor, and Kim Bom (Kim Jin Kyung), a girl who somehow manages to pull off being seemingly cool and shy at the same time. The boss fights Shi Kyung has faced in the gaming world won't measure up to the very real obstacles set before him at school: the rebel who decides to hate the new guy, the chatty school gossip, the bashful school president, and the listless girl with no ambition. Dealing with each of these personalities is only the tip of the iceberg. But perhaps in a fast-paced age of information, our hero could find the true meaning of life, even if it happens just a tad bit slower.
