Park Bo Gum-starrer “Record of Youth” is among the South Korean dramas coming to Netflix in September, along with “The School Nurse Files” and “Private Lives.”

The young adult romance drama, also starring Park So Dam and Byeon Woo Seok, follows the lives of three people working in the fashion industry and their struggles as they pursue their dream. It will premiere on Netflix on Sept. 7.

“Record of Youth” is directed by Ahn Gil Ho, whose other works are “Stranger” and “Memories of Alhambra,” from a script written by Ha Myeong Hee of “Doctors” and “Temperature of Love” fame.

"Record of Youth" is one of the last dramas Park will appear in before his mandatory military enlistment, which will begin on Aug. 31.

Although military send-offs are open to the public and fans gather around to bid goodbye to their idols, Park’s management agency, Blossom Entertainment, said the actor will join duties without much fanfare.

“Due to the current pandemic, where everyone should carry out social distancing for the sake of public health, we request that fans do not visit the location,” the agency said in a statement.

Meanwhile, Nam Joo Hyuk’s “The School Nurse Files,” releasing on Sept. 25, will have a fantasy element to it. The story revolves around actress Jung Yu Mi’s Ahn Eun Young, a school nurse, and Chinese language teacher Hong In Pyo, who battle  “supernatural Jellies” to protect their school.

The drama is based on an original novel by Chung Serang, who also penned the script. It is directed by Lee Kyung Mi (“Crush and Blush”).

Another drama that’s set to enthrall K-drama lovers is “Private Lives,” starring Seohyun and Go Kyung Pyo. The story revolves around a group of con artists who make money by misusing the private information of people.

This will be Go’s first drama since his military service ended.

“Private Lives” is directed by Nam Gun, who helmed “Temperature of Love,” and the script is by “My Beautiful Bride” writer Yoo Sung Yeol.

While the drama will premiere on jTBC on Sept. 16, its Netflix release date is yet to be announced.
