7 Upcoming and New Korean Dramas You Should Be Watching This June
Gosh boys and girls, where did the time go? Half the year has already gone and now we’re entering summer! And you already know what that means, your girl is releasing a list of Korean dramas for you to binge-watch this summer in June!
To be honest, a girl got to give thanks and kisses to the kdrama lords for blessing my eyes with so many good Korean dramas this year. I mean heck, we’re only halfway in 2020 and we’ve pretty much been having bangers after bangers for the past few months. From Crash Landing on You, Itaewon Class, The World of the Married, and now The King: Eternal Monarch.
As kdrama fan, I have to say, we have been plenty spoiled for the past few months. Usually there are only a few good Korean dramas in a year, but the producers and writers seems to be stepping up their game this year. For that, let’s cross our fingers and hope our luck continues to hold and the kdrama lords continue to be benevolent till the end of the year.
