The Month of February : What New Korean Dramas Should You Binge On?
In this year of 2020, not only we’re busy with leap year and Valentine’s Day in the month of February, your girl is also overwhelmed trying to keep up all the binge-worthy Korean dramas that are coming out this month.
Not to mention, with the recent outbreak of Coronavirus that seems to be spreading like wildfire and causing panic all over the globe, this is probably a good time as any to hole up in your room, wrap yourself into a burrito blanket and just binge watch Korean dramas all day long. At least, that’s what I’m going to do.
All jokes aside though, Coronavirus seems to be developing quite rapidly as the rate of the people it infected and how the numbers of death continued to climb. It seems to give off flu-like symptoms with fever, coughing and headaches. If possible, please try to stay away from people who are sick until this virus dies down. With that said, do stay safe and healthy, dear readers.
