9 Best and Most Watched Korean Dramas So Far in 2020

9 Best and Most Watched Korean Dramas So Far in 2020

 

We’re already almost halfway into 2020, and with the continuous amazing Korean dramas that have been gracing out eyes lately, your girl thought it’s long overdue to whip up a list of the best and most watched Korean dramas so far in 2020.

To be honest, I have been quite pleasantly surprised by the Korean dramas this year. After the mild successes of good Korean dramas poppin’ here and there in 2019, I didn’t have high expectations for 2020. For those of you who wonder why, ya girl did it to protect her heart from getting hurt like it did in 2017 after I’ve been riding the feel good waves of amazing kdramas all through 2016, only to be served lukewarm half-dead-not-alive Korean dramas in 2017. 

Needless to say, kdramas in 2017 were pure poop––I’m not going to even get into that right now as that would probably deserve a post all to itself.

However, despite me trying to keep my expectations low, the dramas that has been coming out in 2020 continues to impress. From CLOY, to Kingdom, Itaewon Class and now The King: Eternal Monarch. It’s just getting better and better, and my excited ass absolutely cannot wait to see where this is going to take us next.
