K-Drama Dear. M was one of 2021’s highly anticipated dramas. Not only is it a spin-off of the much-loved Love Playlist series, but the drama is also NCT Jaehyun‘s first-ever acting role. Fans were all geared up to see their favorite star on the small screen.

However, things took a turn when leading actress, Park Hye Su, fell into controversy. Although Dispatch had cleared up her bullying accusations, the general public’s disbelief at the matter and the exposers’ continued accusations put a pause on the airing of the drama. Originally slated for February 2021, Dear. M remained up in the air — until now.
