5. Love Alarm (Season 1)
Launch date: 22 August
Based on a popular Korean webtoon of the same title by Chon Kye-young, Love Alarm centres on three young friends and how a mobile app affects their love lives. The app sends an “alarm” to the user when someone who has romantic feelings for them comes within a 10-meter radius. It helps Kim Jo-jo (played by Kim So-hyun) find new romance, but is the person someone she truly loves? Rising rookie actors Song Kang and Jung GaRam play characters who both have a crush on Jo-jo.
