From career decisions to how to navigate your love life and other relationships, your horoscope can offer a peek at what you can expect from the future. But wouldn’t it be great if the stars can also nudge you in the direction of the next K-drama that you should watch? As luck would have it, we decided to comb through this month’s horoscope and come up with recommendations that suit your star sign and predictions perfectly.
So sit back and relax as you take a look at our guide to your next K-drama binge-watch based on the horoscope for the month of July.
Aries: Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha
The stars are telling you to slow down, Aries, and if there’s anyone who knows the importance of this, it’s Hong Du-sik and Yoon Hye-jin from romantic drama Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha. Hye-jin moves to a small sea-side town after finding herself at a difficult crossroads. Here she meets a host of characters who liven up the sleepy town, including Du-sik, who unexpectedly teaches her the importance of appreciating the smaller things in life.
Taurus: Into The Ring
It’s all about conquering the world for you, Taurus! This month looks to be packed with work for you and it demands that you buckle up and get through it like the boss you are. Need any inspiration? Watch and learn from Gu Sera as she puts everything on the line to win the District Assembly election in the 2020 drama Into The Ring. The show will give you all the motivation you need to not give up, regardless of the odds.
Gemini: Fight For My Way
The show about a group of underdogs who constantly struggle and strive for success as they journey on a path to fulfill their dreams is just what you need to see this month. Your horoscope points out your lack of confidence and how it can hinder all the great opportunities meant to come your way. So take copious notes as you watch Ko Dong-man, Choi Ae-ra, Kim Joo-man, and Baek Sol-hee as they learn to believe in themselves and the dreams that others deem unrealistic in Fight For My Way.
Cancer: Her Private Life
If you’re in a relationship, then this month calls on you to focus on having a good time with your partner, instead of fixating on serious conversations. You can take this time out to discover new and exciting things about your SO, just like in Her Private Life. In the drama, Ryan Gold and Sung Deok-mi find out how discovering new things (and traumatic secrets) about your partner can only bring you closer as long as you communicate well.
Leo: Itaewon Class
Another sign that needs to give themselves some slack and believe in their dreams is Leo. Do not pay heed to the voices from outside (and inside) that tell you your dreams are not worth pursuing and just go for it. We can think of no better drama than Itaewon Class, where a group of friends fight against seemingly unsurmountable odds to bring their dream of owning and running a bar to life.
This show set in South Korea’s fictional Silicon Valley Sandbox is about people in the world of start-ups. The intensely competitive work environment and ambitious charcaters are just what you need this month, Virgo. Your horoscope predicts tense work situations that have to be dealt with tact and diplomacy and the show can give you a pointer or two in dealing with this.
Libra: When The Camellia Blooms
While healthy communication is the cornerstone of any successful relationship, most people tend to forget this. Libra, this is the month where you have to give communication between yourself and your partner top priority. One of the K-dramas that get this absolutely right is the critically-acclaimed romantic drama When The Camellia Blooms. In the show, Oh Dong-baek and Yong-sik build their beautiful relationship through the power of healthy communication and respect.
Scorpio: Hospital Playlist
You need to focus on all the different relationships in your life, whether it’s with your partner or your close friends. One of the best shows about friendship and healthy relationships to watch is the slice-of-life drama Hospital Playlist, where a group of friends navigate life and working at a hospital together. The long-standing friendships and romance will make you feel all warm and tingly inside and give you a renewed appreciation for the people in your own life.
This month is all about paying attention to yourself and treating your girlfriends and yourself like the queens you are. So while you pamper yourself and the girl gang with self care sessions, stream Thirty-Nine on Netflix. The show is about the friendship and love lives of three close friends who are about to turn 40.
Capricorn: Was It Love?
You’re no stranger to dealing with hardships and this month calls upon you to build an impenetrable fortress around yourself. But while that is a good way of protecting yourself on all fronts this month, you need to know that letting people in and trusting people can be a wonderful thing as well. If you need a reminder, watch Was It Love? where Noh Ae-jung learns to give love a chance after protecting her heart for 14 years for the sake of her daughter and her own self.
Aquarius: Couple On The Backtrack
While on the surface of it, this show is about a couple on the verge of divorce finding their way back to each other, following a freak supernatural accident that transports them back when they first met, the show presents one of the most beautiful mother-daughter relationship ever seen in K-dramas. One of the biggest reasons for Ma Jin-yoo and Choi Ban-do’s relationship to fail was the distance that grows between the couple due to lack of communication as Jin-yoo struggles with the grief of losing her mother. When she finds herself transported back in time, her reunion with her then-alive mother is heartbreaking and heartwarming at the same time.
Pisces: Hot Stove League
Pisces, this is not the month to slack off and let things slide easily. Your team depends on you and your leadership skills and you need to be there for them. You can easily draw inspiration from Baek Seung-soo, from Hot Stove League, as he takes over as the manager for a low-ranked baseball team and whips them into shape even when nobody (including himself) believed it was possible.
