While You Were Sleeping
Starring: Lee Jong Suk, Bae Suzy
What is it about? Happy-go-lucky journalist who has the ability to see unfortunate events in her dreams, meets tsundere prosecutor who tries to prevent her dreams from becoming reality.
Watch it if… you enjoy geeking out over complex plots and confusing timelines. Apart from our canon OTP, it’s also impossible not to love the chemistry between side couple Kim So Hyun and Kim Jae Ha (Page Turner feels, anybody?). Just be sure to prepare yourself for a bucketload of mascara tears.
Binge-watch on: ONE (Singtel TV Ch 513 & 604, StarHub TV Ch 124, 820 & 823), every Wednesday and Thursday at 9pm
Girls’ Generation 1979

What is it about? Set in the 1970s, there’s your average high school girl who falls in love at first sight, the pretty transfer student who becomes the talk of the town, the typical class nerd with a non-so-secret crush, and the popular jock whom all the girls are whipped for.
Watch it if… your nostalgia-lovin’ hearts have a soft spot for girl-next-door romances, teenage angst and Daegu dialects. And you’ve got a new crop of fresh faces to watch out for, including Bona from up-and-coming girl group Cosmic Girls.

What is it about? Picking up where season one left off, follow the lives of five ordinary college students as they struggle with the growing pains of adolescence.

Temperature of Love

What is it about? Two homeless single pringles – who aren’t quite ready to mingle – end up living under one roof. Housemate shenanigans and feline hijinks ensue.
Watch it if… you’re in the mood for some lighthearted romance with a side of slapstick. Bonus if you love all things furry. This also marks the actor’s first production since his return from the army, so that’s certainly something to look forward to.
