9 Korean Dramas To Obsess Over –– KDrama Recommendation
To be honest with you, your girl might need help.
Someone really need to help keep me in check with my KDrama obsession because with all of the good Korean Dramas that are coming up, I think I might just forgo sleep and watch KDramas all day and night. And you want to know what’s the worst part? It’s that I don’t think I might even regret it.
Not going to lie, while the first half of the 2018’s Drama list hadn’t been all that astounding or mind boggling, they really did balance it out in the second half of this year as they constantly put out bangin’ KDramas back to back to back. While there has been some great Dramas before Mr.Sunshine, I must admit, it was because of that show that my love for Korean Dramas flared back with a vengeance.
Now, while I don’t mind my recent obsession with KDramas, I must admit that I am a tad bit worried about my well being because now that your girl has taken the ride on this hype train, she kind of doesn’t want to get off of it. *laughs*
