It’s been a busy 2021 on Netflix for K-Dramas so far, but April is currently scheduled to be a much quieter month. That doesn’t mean fans can’t look forward to watching some excellent returning weekly K-Dramas or an exciting new crime-thriller debuting towards the start of the month. Here are the new K-Dramas on Netflix in April 2021.

Only recently announced to be coming to Netflix, Law School is currently the only new weekly K-Drama arriving in April. The story of Law School sounds eerily reminiscent of ABC’s crime-drama How to Get Away With Murder.

In South Korea’s top law school, former elite prosecutor Yang Jong Hoon is now a criminal law professor and expects the very best from all his juniors when an unusual case is given to the legal department.

Sisyphus: The Myth N

Seasons: 1 | Episodes: 16
Genre: Action, Thriller, Sci-Fi | Runtime: 70 Minutes
Cast: Jo Seung Woo, Park Shin Hye, Sung Dong Il, Tae In Ho, Chae Jong Hyeop
Netflix Release Date: February 17th, 2021 | Finale Date: April 8th, 2021

Sisyphus saw a record high of 8.063% in ratings in its second episode, but since then the ratings have gradually gone down. That hasn’t taken away the enjoyment of the series from Netflix subscribers from around the world.

Genius engineer Han Tae Sul is the co-founder of Quantum and Time. Considered to be the “miracle of South Korea’s engineering industry,” the truth is the value of Quantum and Time has fluctuated heavily for the past ten years after Tae Sul’s brother died. Meanwhile, Tae Sul is being sought after by Kang Seo Hae, a fiercely deadly soldier who learned her trade through living amongst gangsters and warlords.

Hello, Me! N

Cast: Choi Kang Hee, Kim Young Kwang, Lee Re, Eum Moon Suk, Kim Byung Choon
Netflix Release Date: February 17th, 2021 | Finale Date: April 8th, 2021

Hello, Me! arguably deserves a higher rating than its 5.1%, but perhaps its Wednesday and Thursday time slot are to blame! Regardless of the ratings, like the rest of the K-Dramas on the list, fans from across the world have tuned in in their droves to watch Choi Kang Hee in action.

Thirty-seven-year-old Ban Ha Ni holds a temporary position at her work and worries that she will someday get fired. She hopes that one day she can find a husband, but her servile and timid attitude allows people to walk all over her. One day, Ban Ha Ni encounters her younger, 17-year-old self, and is shocked to see how her younger self was once bright and optimistic about her future.

Vincenzo N

Seasons: 1 | Episodes: 16

Cast: Song Joong Ki, Jun Yeo Bin, Ok Taec Yeon, Kim Yeo Jin, Jo Han Chul
Netflix Release Date: February 20th, 2021 | Finale Date: April 25th, 2021

Vincenzo is having a great time on tvN earning itself a huge 12.745% in the ratings, solidifying its place in the cable-drama top 50 in 11th place. At the time of writing, Vincenzo has ten more episodes to air, which means we could see another tvN K-Drama break into the top ten highest-rated cable dramas of all time.

At the tender age of eight, Park Ju Hyeong is adopted by an Italian family and sent to be raised in Italy. Years later, Park Ju Hyeong has taken the name of Vincenzo Casano, and become a Mafia lawyer and consigliere. Thanks to warring factions within the Mafia, Vincenzo is left with little choice but to return to South Korea. Upon his return to South Korea, Vincenzo meets and falls in love with Hong Cha Young, a passionate lawyer, who stops at nothing to win a case.

Making the decision to finally pursue his dream, Shem Deok Chool joins a ballet school, where he meets 23-year-old Lee Chae Rok.
