Upcoming Korean Dramas To Launch on iQIYI
Meanwhile, new eagerly-awaited titles are also coming up this month.
18 Again traverses the story of a man who wrinkled time and returned to his high school years, just before getting a divorce. It is also based on 2009 fantasy film 17 Again.
More Than Friends
Tracing and fulfilling a decade-long unrealized love is the driving point of More Than Friends. It touches on the emotions of a woman harboring long-standing love to her friend; and the friend who realized late that he feels the same.
