10 New Upcoming Korean Drama I’m Dying To Watch in May 2020

 

I don’t what to jinx it, but despite me trying to keep my expectations low with Korean dramas this year, I think 2020 is the year of Kdramas. Heck, it’s already the month of May, and yet I still have a ton of new Korean drama I’m dying to watch every single month.

Truly. I have been working hard to keep neutral and not get too excited with the continuous bangers after bangers of Korean dramas that release every single month. But girl, it’s hard to not get excited. You feel me? Not to mention, the fact that we have a shit load of kdramas to keep out lock downed butts occupied at home is definitely another plus in my book. 

With that said, hopefully in the year of 2020, kdramas continue to keep their stride of putting out binge-worthy shows. Because by now, your girl is already too spoiled from watching amazing Korean dramas back-to-back every single week to even try to imagine life without it. *laughs*
