We discuss the New Upcoming K-Dramas to Watch in April 2023. Keep this page handy to keep track of the latest Korean Drama offerings.
If you like medical dramas, fish-out-of-water housewife scenarios, rogue male lead crime comedies, or are anxiously waiting for sequels to your favorite k-drama, April is your month because they’re coming in twos!
April kicks off with one of two sequels for the month. First, it’s the second season for Decoy, a gritty crime thriller whose Part 1 aired earlier this year.
The second is Romantic Doctor Season 3, another follow-up to the award-winning medical drama. (Its second season was just as solid as its first, so looking forward to a great third season!).
Speaking of medical dramas, Doctor Cha tells the story of a housewife who returns to the medical field after a 20-year hiatus from the practice. Pale Moon, another drama about a housewife returning to the workforce, centers on a bored housewife who takes a job at the bank, only to find her life upended when she comes in contact with money.
Two crime capers comedies will also make an appearance. Stealer: The Treasurer Keeper features a rather unimpressive undercover civil servant who recovers cultural artifacts in his spare time.

Anyway, let’s break down the new and upcoming K-Dramas in April 2023. Thanks to AsianWiki for the plot summaries.
