Large Radish

Yoon Chan-young plays a cab driver for ghosts in Delivery Man, while Song Hye-kyo’s character Moon Dong-eun continues to plan vengeance in The Glory season 2

Carrying on 2022’s hottest Korean drama trend, March will see the launch of a number of series featuring lawyers. The evergreen genres of period drama, action and melodrama also feature in the K-drama line-up for the month, as well as the follow-up to one of last year’s biggest Netflix hits. Here is our preview of the seven most exciting K-dramas debuting in March 2023.

1. Delivery Man

While Lee Je-hoon busies himself with picking up vengeful fares in Taxi Driver season 2, All of Us Are Dead actor Yoon Chan-young will also play a cab driver in Delivery Man – but his clients are ghosts. 

Just like last year’s May I Help You? with Lee Hye-ri, this show follows a character who has the ability to see ghosts and the duty to help fulfil their last wishes so that they may pass on to the afterlife. 

Yoon plays Seo Young-min, who is helped by the ghost Kang Ji-hyun (Bang Min-ah of the K-pop group Girls’ Day), who steps into his cab without any memory of who she was, and the handsome ER doctor Do Kyu-jin, played by Kim Min-suk (Lovestruck in the City). (ENA, March 1, and streaming on Viu) 

Cho Seung-woo’s most famous role is as a lawyer in Stranger, and now he returns as a lawyer in Divorce Attorney Shin

2. Divorce Attorney Shin

As the title suggests, Shin Sung-han is a divorce lawyer, but his path to that job was an unconventional one.  Sung-han was a talented piano player who became a professor at a music conservatory in Germany.  

After hearing some terrible news one day, he returns to Korea and strives to become a lawyer. Thanks to his difficult childhood memories, Sung-han decides to specialise in divorce law, and now he stands up for his clients while steadily digging towards the truth he is searching for. Cho’s co-stars include Han Hye-jin (Hold Me Tight), Kim Sung-kyun (D.P.) and Jung Moon-sung (Hospital Playlist). (JTBC, March 4, and streaming on Netflix) 

3. Oasis

For a sweeping nostalgic youth tale, look no further than Oasis, a drama that follows the ups and downs of three young people in the 1980s and ’90s.

Jang Dong-yoon (Search) leads the cast as Lee Doo-hak, a provincial high school student from a poor family. He falls in love with Seoul transfer student Oh Jung-shin (Seol In-a, Business Proposal), who always fights against injustice and forms a bond with Doo-hak and his friend Choi Cheol-woong (Choo Yeong-woo, Police University).
