JTBC‘s new romantic-comedy K-Drama King the Land, starring Girls’ Generation‘s YoonA (also known as Im Yoon Ah) and 2PM‘s Junho (also known as Lee Jun Ho), premiered this past weekend with its first two episodes.

Many viewers are hooked already. The combination of the OST, lead actors’ chemistry, and humor is exactly what a lot have been looking for. For a while now, most K-Dramas have been gritty thrillers and melodramas, so King the Land has come like a breath of fresh air.

International netizens are singing King the Land‘s praises. They love the romantic-comedy vibes so far, calling it a “real rom-com” reminiscent of “old-school” K-Dramas.
