King the Land release date

08/15/23 Update: King the Land ended its run on Aug. 6, 2023.

Mark your calendar because King the Land is set to premiere on Netflix on Saturday, June 17, 2023, with new episodes dropping every Saturday and Sunday.

King the Land is a romantic comedy created by Cheon Sung-il. In addition, Im Hyun-wook signed on as director with Choi Rom writing the scripts. Npio Entertainment and SLL are the production companies behind the Korean series.

It tells the story of Goo Won, the charismatic heir to a luxury hotel conglomerate called The King Group. While it may seem that Goo Won has everything he could possibly ever want, what he doesn’t have is memories of his mother. To recover his memories, he returns to King Hotel. There, he finds himself involved in an inheritance war while also dealing with a hardworking employee named Cheon Sa-rang, who always has a smile on her face.

If you’re a fan of K-POP, you’ll most likely recognize the leading stars. Lee Jun-ho, from the popular South Korean boy group 2PM, stars as Goo Won. Additionally, Girls’ Generation’s Im Yoon-ah plays the role of Cheon Sa-rang. Go Won-hee, Kim Ga-eun, Ahn Se-ha, Kim Jae-won, and many others are also in the cast.
