Looking for something new to watch this weekend?

A new fantasy musical K-series, The Sound of Magic, starring TJi Chang Wook (Lovestruck in the City), Choi SungEun (Beyond Evil), and popular rising actor Hwang InYoup (True Beauty), is dropping on Netflix this Friday (May 6).

The Sound of Magic is a live-action adaptation of Annarasumanara, a well-known webtoon series, directed by Kim Sung-Youn who previously worked on Love in the Moonlight and Itaewon Class.

If K-dramas are not your thing, you can get a dose of superhero action on the small screen with the latest seasons of The Flash and DC's Legends of Tomorrow, or thrillers like The Forever Purge on HBO GO.

Here's a roundup of the newest shows and movies that dropped on streaming sites from May 2 to May 8, 2022.
