Original Netflix Korean drama ‘Love Alarm’ starring Kim So-hyun to be released in August

Netflix has finally announced the release date of its Korean original series Love Alarm starring Kim So-hyun, Song Kang, and Jung Ga-ram. The series will be made available in over 190 countries beginning August 22, 2019.

The show’s title refers to an app that alerts people when someone who likes them is within a 10-meter radius from their location. The drama is based on a popular webtoon of the same name by Chon Kye-young, one of South Korea’s most famous cartoonists.

Kim So-hyun (Radio Romance) plays the protagonist, a high schooler named Kim Jo-jo whose cheerful personality hides the fact that she is an orphan living with her aunt’s unpleasant family. Jo-jo gets involved in a love triangle with two of her classmates, played by Song Kang and Jung Ga-ram. Song (The Liar And His Lover) plays a typical starved-for-love heir from a wealthy family who takes an interest in Jo-jo when his best friend, played by Jung (Mistress), develops a crush on her. Song Geon-hee, who was last seen in SKY Castle, will also be seen in the show as a young idol star.

With a cast bursting with fresh and innocent charms, Love Alarm is expected to become popular among both Korean and international fans of the teen romance genre.

A still image of Kim So-hyun and Song Kang was also recently released. The two actors are shown intensely staring at each other as the people around them go about their business. Well, nothing signals a good romance as stopping in the middle of a busy staircase just to stare at your crush!

Directed by PD Lee Na-jeong of Fight For My Way, Love Alarm is the third original Korean drama of Netflix. It is just one of the five confirmed original Netflix Korean dramas—aside from Kingdom and My First First Love—that are expected to be released in 2019 or 2020.

Meanwhile, the second season of My First First Love is now available on Netflix.
