Netflix has promised a captivating lineup of highly anticipated K-dramas for the remainder of 2023, and “Mask Girl” has become an essential addition to everyone’s must-watch list. Bid farewell to saccharine romance and a mere hint of shadowy suspicion; this black comedy thriller delves into the realm of dual identities and more.

Netflix’s “Mask Girl”: Release Date and Details According to Netflix’s official page, “Mask Girl” is scheduled to premiere on August 18. August has proven to be a promising month for K-drama enthusiasts, with Netflix’s “King The Land,” “The Uncanny Counter” Season 2, and now the much-anticipated “Mask Girl.”
Due to time zone variations, some K-drama fans will be able to enjoy “Mask Girl” immediately upon release. Netflix plans to debut the K-drama at 6:00 pm in Korea (KST). For international viewers, “Mask Girl” will be accessible for streaming at 9:00 am in the UK (GMT), 5:00 am on the US east coast (ET), and 2:00 am on the west coast (PT).
The first season of “Mask Girl” comprises seven episodes, each running for approximately 50 minutes. Following the trend of many successful Netflix K-dramas, “Mask Girl” draws its inspiration from an original webcomic penned by Mae Mi.
“Mask Girl” Plot: Unveiling the K-drama Thriller “Mask Girl,” the K-drama from Netflix, revolves around Kim Mo-mi, an ordinary office worker. Once aspiring to shine as a performer under the spotlight, Mo-mi’s dreams faded with the passage of time and the unkindness of age, rendering her feeling ‘ugly.’ For Mo-mi, her last bastion of confidence lies in her physique. Assuming the persona of ‘Mask Girl’ in online live streams, she captivates audiences while concealing her true identity and visage.
Amid her burgeoning online fame, Mo-mi becomes ensnared in a sequence of unforeseen and harrowing events, even venturing into the realm of murder. Alongside Mo-mi is her colleague, Joo Oh-nam, who shares her dissatisfaction with his own appearance. It’s within this backdrop that a subtle thread of romance weaves its way into Netflix’s “Mask Girl.”
Oh-nam not only admires Mask Girl, but he discovers that Mo-mi is the enigmatic online personality. Coincidentally, he harbors an unrequited crush on Mo-mi. Yet, his connection with her propels Oh-nam into perilous territory, resulting in his sudden disappearance.
Portraying Oh-nam is none other than actor Ahn Jae-hong, a familiar face for K-drama enthusiasts due to his roles in “Be Melodramatic” and “Fight For My Way.”
“Mask Girl” also features Yeom Hye-ran from “The Uncanny Counter,” assuming the role of Kim Kyung-ja, Oh-nam’s mother, who will go to any lengths to safeguard her son. The August K-drama further stars Choi Daniel, Kim Ga-hee, and Park Jeong-hwa in supporting roles.
