Japanese Doramas: Best June Premieres

I will list the new products that I am going to follow and that interest me at least a little bit (even though there are very few of them).

Convenience Store Saet Byul (Backstreet Rookie)

Why it is worth watching: the past failed project of Ji Chang-wook must be compensated for. I like both the actor and the actress. The plot is very straightforward but if you mix the genres in the right proportions, the result can be extremely good.

The protagonist runs a small convenience store after resigning. He is doing great but needs a part-time worker to work the night shift at his store. That is when a cute girl applies for the job and starts working there. As you might have guessed, this young and pretty woman is a very cocky one. These two will get to know each other and fall in love eventually…

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay (Psycho But It’s Okay)

Why it is worth watching: it’s been a long time since the last Kim Soo-hyun’s dorama. I really liked his 2018 dorama Lawless Lawyer. The screenwriter of the upcoming series has also worked on Juggler, one of my favorite doramas.

According to the official synopsis, the series will tell an unusual romance between two people who end up healing each other’s emotional and psychological wounds. The male hero is fully devoted to his autistic brother so he does not have time to find a girlfriend.

The heroine is a popular children’s author who suffers from dissocial personality disorder and cannot find a common ground with anyone. How are they going to fell in love with each other?
