Top 6 K-Drama Series to Watch in December 2022! 

Dark new K-dramas usually debut in December, and this year is no exception. The dark story of Connect, in which a man’s eye is implanted into a vicious serial murderer, will open Disney+. In this story, the man is forced to experience horrible images.

In the meantime, Kim Nam-Gil and Cha Eun-eagerly woo’s anticipated thriller series Island explores the eerie legends and secrets of Jeju Island.

It will also excite fans of Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area and Alchemy of Souls to know that the two popular dramas will return in December, only a few months after their first seasons aired. The 2020 dramatic supernatural-fantasy series Missing: The Other Side, starring Go Soo, Heo Jun-ho, and Ahn So-hee, is finally back with its second season.

The legendary actor Choi Min-Sik (well known for Oldboy) will also appear in Big Bet as a wealthy casino owner who is in danger of losing everything. This will be his first small-screen appearance in 26 years.

The Forbidden Marriage, starring Shooting Stars’ Kim Young-dae as a morose Joseon-era monarch who pushes the kingdom into a marriage ban after losing his wife, is a good choice for those seeking something lighter. Here are 11 forthcoming K-dramas to watch in December 2022, without further ado.

6. Alchemy of Souls: Light and Shadow

One of the most watched shows of the summer was the historical fantasy epic Alchemy of Souls, which will return for 10 episodes next month with its signature blend of magic, romance, and palace intrigue.

Except for Jung So-min, who is dramatically replaced by Go Yoon-Jung this season, the entire cast is back. There was no scandal here, though; the change was driven by the plot of the show because Mu-deok, the lead character, will soon revert to her previous identity as Naksu, which Go played in the pilot.
