There are some truly wacky K-dramas out there, but this upcoming one may just take the cake nugget?

Aptly titled Chicken Nugget, the comedy K-drama is about a woman who accidentally gets turned into a chicken nugget after entering a mysterious machine. When her father discovers this, he sets out on a mission to turn her back into a human, assisted by a man who has a crush on his daughter.

Y'all, what even is this plot hahahaha. But ngl, it sounds like it's gonna be a hilarious watch.

Based on the Naver webtoon of the same name, the drama is set to release on Netflix sometime this year

Today, 8 February, Netflix posted a teaser of the upcoming drama on Twitter, with a caption that reads "The rumours are true".

The five-second teaser shows a quick snippet of the woman's transformation, followed by scenes of her father and the man who has a crush on her holding her nugget form and wailing in misery.

Watch it below:

As you can see in the snippet, the cast includes the following:

- Kim Yoo-jung as Choi Min-ah, the woman who gets turned into a chicken nugget after stepping into a mysterious machine that she mistakes as a fatigue-recovery machine. Kim Yoo-jung has made a name for herself through lead roles in various hit K-dramas like Love in the Moonlight, Lovers of the Red Sky, and My Demon. Her role in Chicken Nugget is listed as a cameo, so we can assume that her character spends most of the drama in her nugget form.

- Ryu Seung-ryong as Choi Seon-man, the president of All Machines, the company that made the machine which caused Min-ah's transformation. He is also Min-ah's father. You may know Ryu Seung-ryong from his previous roles in Kingdom, Moving, and Miracle in Cell No. 7.

- Ahn Jae-hong as Baek-joong, an intern at All Machines who has a crush on Min-ah. He tries to help her father turn her back into a human. Ahn Jae-hong is probably best known for his roles in Reply 1988 and Fight for My Way.

As the tweet was from Netflix's international account, it's uncertain whether Chicken Nugget will be added to Netflix Malaysia's lineup of K-dramas, but we can hope!

If it does air in Malaysia, make sure to stock up on chicken nuggets to snack on while binge-watching, hehe! ;)

If this drama isn't your cup of tea, here are some other K-drama recommendations:
