“A Poem A Day’’ follows the lives of various medical professionals, including physical therapists, nurses, doctors ,and radiology technologists.

The drama co-stars Lee Joon-Hyuk (“Stranger”), who plays a physical therapist who becomes the team leader at the hospital, and Jang Dong-Yoon (“School 2017”), who plays a young trainee forced into the medical field by his parents.
It’s been a while since we’ve seen a medical drama, and we can’t wait for this one! The production team behind this upcoming drama is the same team who made “Drinking Solo’’ such a success. Plus, fans are also looking forward to the role that will be played by Defconn of “Weekly Idol” as he adds a comedic twist to the drama.
Though the drama is a medical one, the trailer says that it is also a romantic drama with a mix of comedy.
“A Poem A Day’ is expected to air this coming March 26th on tvN.
Asian prince Lee Kwang Soo is the main lead of the new drama “Live.’’ He will be acting alongside the beautiful actress Jung Yoo Mi (“Train to Busan”).
The story will center on the lives and struggles of police officers as they fight and protect people in the name of justice.
The drama is directed by Kim Kyu Tae and written by Noh Hee Kyung, the team behind the popular dramas “It’s Okay That’s Love,’’ “That Winter Wind That Blows,” and”Dear My Friends.” As such, you be assured that the story will be an interesting one!
The trailer shows a melodramatic side of the story but the action part of the drama also promises to bring us all the feels for which we’re hoping! The drama will air its first episode on March 10th on tvN.
