Love has no limits. Love is not bounded by gender, age, culture, country, etc. Noona romance is a genre of Korean drama that truly captures the hearts of many audiences. These confident ladies overcome all types of challenges for true love and never bow down to social bias. We are deeply reminded by these noonas to never give up. Here are some upcoming noona romance dramas that will be released in the second half of 2021 and early 2022.

Im Soo Jung plays the role of a math teacher and Lee Do Hyun as a math genius and tells the tale of how they navigate through the scandals in the school. Though there is a 16 year age difference between Lee and Im, we should look forward to the chemistry of these Baeksang winners.
