Published Feb 11, 2022 6:04 pm

Romance is definitely in the air, as evidenced by all the new shows that use "Love" in the title and romantic comedy films that have dropped this month alone.

Planning to stay in this V-Day weekend instead of braving the restaurants, malls, and hotels?

There's a lot of new K-content to check out including Netflix's latest spicy K-drama film Love and Leashes, an adaptation of the webcomic Moral Sense. The film, which stars SNSD’s Seohyun and U-KISS’ Lee Jun-young, explores a romantic relationship between two office employees with contrasting designations and sexual preferences.

For those who still have a hangover from All of Us are Dead, the Japanese zombie series Love You As the World Ends suddenly made an appearance on the Top 10 lists in the country.

Not a big fan of love and romance? KIMI, Steven Soderbergh's latest feature film for New Line Cinema has dropped on HBO GO. The film starring Zoë Kravitz as a tech worker who uncovers a violent crime during an ordinary data stream review, will have you think twice about your Alexa.

Here are some of the newest movies and series on streaming sites that dropped from Feb. 7 to 13, 2022.
