It’s been a busy Summer for K-Dramas on Netflix, however, September is currently scheduled to be one of the quietest months on Netflix in 2022. There’s still plenty of time throughout August and September for more announcements to be made, but for now, k-drama fans will only have two new dramas to look forward to, the crime-thriller Narco-Saints and the Korean adaptation of Little Women.
In case you missed them, we’ve also kept track of the latest k-drama releases in August 2022.

Off the back of Squid Game and the Korean adaptation of Money Heist, Park Hae Soo stars in the exciting new Korean crime thriller Narco-Saints. It must be noted that the name of the drama was changed from The Accidental Narco and that the series is completely unrelated to the popular Narcos franchise.
Based on true events, Narco-Saints takes place in South America, where a drug lord operating in the country has grabbed the attention of the National Intelligence Service. The intelligence service enlists the help of an ordinary entrepreneur who set his sights on making his fortune in Suriname, only to fall knee-deep into the world of drug crime.

After receiving an urgent phone call from his grandfather, Han Ji Yool, a Seoul veterinarian, decides to travel to Heedong Village, where his grandfather runs an animal clinic. Upon arriving Han Ji Yool discovers that his grandfather is touring Europe, and he must now look after the clinic for the next 6 months while his grandfather is away.
