Although fans were happy to see more Korean content on the streamer, they had hoped for the release of more than just two series.

So they weren’t necessarily short of new content.
Luckily, there seem to be more options for June. Continue reading to find out some of the best K-Dramas scheduled to arrive on the streamer in June!
Best K-Dramas coming to Netflix in June 2022

Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area

Out of all the K-Dramas on this list, Money Heist: Korea – Joint Economic Area is the show everyone is patiently waiting for and most excited to see. It’s a South Korean adaptation of the hit Spanish original series Money Heist and stars some well-known South Korean actors such as Yoo Ji-tae, Park Hae soo, Jeon Jong-seo, Lee Won-jong, Park Myung-hoon, and many others.
The story takes place during a time when North and South Korea have reached an agreement and are finally coming together after a long time of division. With reunification comes a brand new unified currency that a master strategist and his crew of highly-skilled thieves from North and South Korea are on a mission to steal.
