Mask Girl is an upcoming South Korean Netflix Original thriller TV show directed by Kim Yong Hoon, and based on the popular Korean webtoon of the same name.

The webtoon on which the series is based is listed as 18+, so it’s only meant for adults. It’s unclear if the k-drama adaptation will hold back on the rating to attract a larger audience, or if it will be faithful and keep the same themes.

When is the Mask Girl season 1 Netflix release date?

Mask Girl won’t be released on Netflix until 2023. An exact release date hasn’t been given but we aren’t expecting to see the k-drama arrive until at least the Spring of 2023.

What is the plot of Mask Girl?

The synopsis is courtesy of Navear:

Kim Mo Mi is an ordinary office woman with a severe sense of inferiority in appearance and is caught up in various incidents while as an internet broadcasting jockey with her face covered with a mask.

Joo Oh Nam is Kim Mo Mi’s coworker. He harbors a one-sided crush on Kim Mo Mi. As a character who also feels inferior about his appearance and lacks presence in general, Joo Oh Nam’s only source of joy is watching internet broadcasts. He will get swept up in an unexpected incident with Kim Mo Mi.
