At long last, we’re almost done with January. These past four weeks have felt incredibly long and exhausting, hasn't it? So as soon as we greet the next month this coming weekend, we say it's time to treat ourselves. Let go of your stresses and just enjoy some low-key chilling at home. Switch on your screens and enjoy titles on your fave streaming platform. Of course, there’s a whole lot on Netflix right now, so for those unsure which are worth watching, here are several February 2020 releases to look out for.
K-Drama fans are in for a treat right on the first day of the month! Included in Netflix February 2020 releases is Itaewon Class, starring Park Seo Joon, whom you’ve probably watched in rom-coms What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim and Fight for My Way. But this month, he’s bringing back his charismatic charm on-screen on a fresh new role as a stubborn and ambitious ex-convict named Park Sae Ro Yi. Driven by vengeance, Park Sae Ro Yi, along with other misfits, attempt to establish a successful restaurant in the district of Itaewon.
Locke & Key
Those who enjoyed The Umbrella Academy should tune in on the streaming platform this 7 February as they release the supernatural thriller Locke & Key. One of the most anticipated Netflix titles this year, it’s based on a comic book series that tells the story of three siblings who move to their mum’s ancestral home after the gruesome murder of their father. There, they discover a set of magical keys that can open doors to mysterious worlds, and perhaps even to the reality behind their dad’s untimely death.
To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You
February is the month of love, so obviously, there’s a slew of Netflix February 2020 releases to keep all hopeless romantics thrilled. A must-watch, of course, is the upcoming To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before sequel that Netflix has been relentlessly teasing us with since last year. This 12 February, Lana Condor and Noah Centineo will be back to reprise their roles as Lara Jean and Peter Kavinsky. Though To All The Boys: P.S. I Still Love You might begin with all hearts and roses as they start their relationship for real, all of this might go downhill as another one of Lara’s love letter recipients returns to her life.
I Am Not Okay with This
Another title joining the platform is the coming-of-age drama I Am Not Okay with This, brought to you by the minds that created The End of the F***ing World and Stranger Things. This new teen series, however, revolves around 15-year-old Syd, who struggles with her father’s death, as well her sexuality. Tough, huh? That’s not all — she also must deal with mysterious superpowers beginning to awaken inside her. Aren’t we thankful our teenage years weren’t that complicated?
Finally, right before the month ends, on 27 February, J-Drama lovers will be treated to the release of the first season of Followers. The Japanese series stars Miki Nakatani, a photographer who changes the life of an aspiring star played by Elaiza Ikeda. Set in the world of showbiz, the drama appears to be full of Tokyo’s glitz and glamour, but ultimately, Followers aims to capture the struggles of modern women as they attempt to find their happiness in life.
