In 2021, following the release of a heavy steam on Netflix, K-dramas begin to be added to the list of content available for steaming on Netflix, and we still have much more to prepare throughout the year!
The Racket Boys is expected to come out in the last day of May, and we’ll keep a complete record of everything you’ll need to know about it: the story, the characters, the trailers, and the release schedule.
Racket Boys’ Synopsis and Release Date
Cho Young-kwang and Jung Bo-hun developed the Korean coming-of-age drama series Racket Boys. The story follows a badminton club at Haenam Seo Intermediate School that is still in bad shape. It tells the story of how sixteen young boys and girls overcame hurdles–and how they develop when they participate in a junior sports competition. In order to become national-level badminton players, Ra Yeong-Ja (Oh Na-ra), a legendary badminton player, gets employed as a coach for a middle school badminton team. Now, coaching her team, she must put in a lot of effort to help them win.
On Monday, May 31, 2021, Netflix will release the first episode of Racket Boys and will consist of 16 episodes, with two new episodes released weekly on Mondays and Tuesdays. Each episode will be roughly 60 minutes in length.
