jTBC Presents Another Mature Suspense Drama with July 2020 Premiere of Graceful Friends with Song Yoon Ah and Yoo Joon Sang

If tvN is the most mainstream of the cable networks, OCN has carved out procedurals/thrillers, Chosun TV has one hit a year with sageuks, then jTBC is the indie that’s riding the dark horse all the way to the deepest recesses of the human psyche. On the heels of two record breaking K-dramas with Sky Castle and The World of the Married, the network next month will air the adult psychological thriller murder mystery Graceful Friends (Elegant Friends), not to be confused with last year’s makjang drama Graceful Family. It’s scheduled for the Fri-Sat time slot and has a powerful cast of Song Yoon Ah, Yoo Jun Sang, Bae Soo Bin, Han Da Gam, Kim Sung Oh, Kim Won Hae, and many more forming a rich and full of secrets group of friends shaken up by a murder in the mix.
