8 Upcoming Korean Dramas You Should Not Miss Out On

8 Upcoming Korean Dramas You Should Not Miss Out On

 

I’m back, you guys!

Your girl is back into the Korean Drama groove.

I know I have jumped ship to binge reading books and have been pretty absent for the past few months, as the KDramas out there haven’t really caught my interest. But with June coming up soon, and a lot of the long awaited KDramas coming out, I am back in the game. *wink wink*

For me, the Korean Dramas these past 6 months or so have been kind of dry(?) None of the dramas they have been putting out caught my interest. But with the upcoming months, especially June – yes, I am looking at you, Are You Human Too – this explosion of amazing (fingers crossed) Korean Dramas are going to grace my eyes and fangirling heart once more.

So today, with this post, I would like to share with you the KDramas that I have been waiting – impatiently – for, and pull you in on this fangirling fest.
