Following JTBC‘s mega hit series Sky Castle, Itaewon Class, and The World of The Married, the new upcoming weekend K-Drama Elegant Friends (though the exact English title is TBD) dropped its teaser poster.
This “mysterious drama” — as hinted by the dark poster that reads “The past, the secrets, and the present” — will capture the chaos that unfolds amongst a group of friends who have known each other for two decades, when a mutual friend passes away.
Co-starring some of Korea’s most talented actors and actresses, Elegant Friends is set to premiere July 10, 2020. Here’s everything we know about the characters so far:

The star-studded cast list and the curious poster have them screaming, “Another blockbuster is coming!”
