If May was K-drama overload month, then June looks to be TW-drama’s turn to release a batch of new offerings I’ve been keeping an eye on. I’ve already posted about Material Queen premiering on June 17th and Love Keeps Going premiering on June 4th. Now it’s finally been confirmed that Hayate the Combat Butler will be airing on June 19th on FTV (which makes Hayate a Sunday drama going up against Love Keeps Going).
I’m totally excited because Taiwan can do a great manga-adaptation, and I’m hoping Hayate is one of these dramas. Plus it stars Park Shin Hye, who is adorable, and will have the honor of having two new dramas airing at the same time in two countries simultaneously, as her Heartstrings will Jung Yong Hwa will premiere in late June on MBC.
I’ll bring the first trailer when it drops, which should give us a good idea of what to expect – OTT wacky or charmingly off-kilter. Rumors have Shin Hye going to Taiwan in the next few weeks to promote Hayate, so I’ll keep an eye out for that if it does take place.
