6 New Korean Dramas to Watch in April 2020 That’s Worth Your Time

 

It’s that time of the month again, you guys. To welcome the spring and the month of April, here’s a list of new Korean dramas to watch coming your way!

Honestly, as far as Korean drama goes thus far in 2020, it really has been going really good. In the previous years, there has been times where the viewers would go months without anything even remotely worth watching. But as of recently, it truly feels as if the overall quality of the kdramas that we watch have been improving. Which, obviously is a great thing seeing how much more attention and international fans they have been pulling in the recent years. 

After watching my first Korean drama in 2020––Crash Landing on You––I thought that would be it. I mean, honestly, CLOY is pretty hard to beat in terms of plot, chemistry, visual, etc. I thought I would be in a drama slump for the rest of the year. But then came Itaewon Class, and your girl is up and bingeing Korean drama again before I even knew it. 

Right now I’m watching a handful of kdramas at the same time, while also already starting to glance at more new kdramas in April that I can add to my to-watch list. Talk about biting more than I can chew. *laughs*
