Premiere Watch: Doom at Your Service, Move to Heaven

Death hovers over both of our new shows, but unlike the thriller-heavy dramas of previous weeks, the newest additions to dramasphere focus on death in terms of how it can raise questions about what it means to live fully and make unexpected emotional connections.

 

Doom at Your Service

Time slot: Monday & Tuesday
Broadcaster: tvN
Genre: Fantasy, rom-com
Episode count: 16

Reasons to watch: Park Bo-young and Seo In-gook is a pairing that is right out of my dreams; in fact the entire cast (supporting members include Kang Tae-oh, Lee Soo-hyuk, and Shin Do-hyun) and the PD (Kwon Young-il of My Unfamiliar Family and Search Query: WWW) are major draws for me. The story itself starts with a meet strange between our leads, and when Park Bo-young learns she has just one hundred days left to live, demigod Seo In-gook shows up on her doorstep to offer her a deal. As the clock ticks down, Seo In-gook finds himself falling for Park Bo-young as she faces life and death head-on–but his feelings threaten to upset the balance between the human and divine worlds. I’m expecting crackling chemistry and shades of quirkiness, so don’t let me down, Doom!

 

Move to Heaven

Time slot: Friday
Broadcaster: Netflix
Genre: Human
Episode count: 10

Reasons to watch: I’ve been looking forward to this premiere since the news first broke that Lee Je-hoon would be starring, and now it’s finally here. Lee and Tang Joon-sang play an uncle and nephew duo who are in the trauma cleaning business together (i.e. they clean the homes of those who’ve died). Rocking a mini mullet, and fresh out of prison, Lee joins the business after learning his estranged hyung has passed away. His hyung’s will has a clause that Lee can become Tang’s guardian (with all the financial benefits that would entail), if he can work with Tang for three months. Though Lee doesn’t care much for family, working together gives him a new perspective on life and family. If you’re in the mood for some uncle-nephew bonding and contemplations on the things left behind when people transition to the afterlife, this one might be for you.

Trying not to raise my expectations too for Doom bcs I love the main cast so much. Praying to dramagods it'll be good.

Also, Move to Heaven was a series? I thought it was a movie xD

I thought it was a movie too until I saw on Netflix that 'season 1' will drop on Friday - so the entire season (all 10 eps) in one go?

There are no dates for individual episodes so maybe we'll get all eps on Friday, perfect to binge this coming weekend.

It's a Netflix drama, they will release the whole serie in once, like Love Alarm.

But I thought it was movie too.

I wish there’s a long weekend to watch all 10 episodes of Move to Heaven in one go. The long trailer is pretty good and where I learnt Ji Jin-hee is the father.

Doom at Your Service: Seo In-guk’s been away from drama land for too long and used to be one of my favorites, yet I can’t muster any interest in Doom. Am I just tired of fantasy rom-coms? Is it Park Bo-young? Whatever is happening with his hair? I hope it exceeds my expectations and makes me love SIG again.

Move to Heaven: Aside from whatever is happening with Lee Je-hoon's hair, this looks really good. I know what I'll be watching this weekend.

I've been waiting for new Seo In Guk drama so it will be on my list but I'm more excited in Lee Je hoon's Move to heaven.His taxi taxi driver is still airing but I can't wait to see him in different genre and I think Move to heaven will touch the viewers heart.

MOVE TO HEAVEN is what I have been waiting for. Just from the two Netflix trailers I have seen I think both Tang Joon-sang and Lee Je-hoon are going to give great performances.
With all the episodes available on May 14 I will be able to go into one episode a night mode and then be ready for Tang Joon-sang's RACKET BOYS on May 31. RB will be 16 episodes and also available on Netflix (US) (I believe.)

Definitely watching both of these. As a Seo In-guk super-fan, I’m really hoping Doom at Your Service is good.

I watched episodes 1 & 2 and the tone was MUCH darker than I expected. Halfway through episode 2 you realize the dark tone is deliberate, not merely a directing misjudgment. Depicting god as continually reincarnating, over and over, into the form of a suffering human is a dark bit of metaphysics.
