Have you seen the original Kdrama Misaeng: Incomplete Life, which was based on the webtoon series by Yoon Tae Ho? I haven’t, but it was highly rated when it aired back in 2014! The original story synopsis: Since he was a child, the board game baduk has been everything to Jang Geu-rae. But when he fails at achieving his dream of becoming a professional baduk player, Geu-rae must leave his isolated existence and enter the real world armed with nothing but a high school equivalency exam on his resume. Through an acquaintance’s recommendation, he gets hired as an intern at One International, a large trading company.
There, Geu-rae meets his boss, manager Oh Sang-shik, who’s a workaholic and has a warm personality; fellow intern Ahn Young-yi, who attracts her colleagues’ ire because of her impressive educational credentials and by being extremely competent at any task; and Jang Baek-gi, a geeky co-worker whose anxious nature masks his inner ambition. Geu-rae learns to navigate and adapt to corporate culture, with baduk as his guide. [Wiki]
Began airing 9/4!

If it’s not obvious, In A Class of Her Own (云上学堂) is the Chinese remake of a very popular Korean drama Sungkyunkwan Scandal in 2010! I did watch and enjoy the original, the quartet had oozing chemistry, buoyed by solid acting performances.
Let me know what you think of the remake! You get 2 episodes every Thur-Sat. VIP folks get 6 episodes in advance.
The Lost Tomb Reboot (重启之极海听雷) is the latest addition to the tomb-related franchise starring Zhu Yi Long, Mao Xiao Tong, Huang Jun Jie (as Qi Ling), Hu Jun, Chen Ming Hao, and Baron Chen. Our three musketeers are drawn back to adventures in the dark with a message from Mr. Wu.
Season 1 has 32 episodes. So I guess the whopping episode count is due to the fact they will be splitting the series into multiple seasons?
Airing today 7/15!
