Upcoming Korean Dramas To Be Released This August –– ITS SUMMERRR!

 

Damn yo, the months are flying by like crazy. Already your girl is writing up monthly blogpost on upcoming korean dramas for august, and I felt like it just wrote the ones for July a few days ago!

Ah man, where has the time gone. 2020 is such a lackluster of a year for everyone to be honest. With all this quarantines, I’ve been struggling with being productive at home for the past few months. And while it’s getting much better now––both my productivity and mental state––it was really bad a few months ago. As much fun as working from home is, one can only take so much before we start going crazy in the confines of our own homes, you know?

When that happens, please do not be afraid to reach out for help. People care, that’s something that I’ve needed to understand and drill into my head. But serious talks aside––probably need a separate blogposts for that anyways––in this post, I’m going to keep you updated on upcoming kdramas. Not going to lie, despite the shitshow that is 2020, South Korea really have been going strong with their kdramas. It’s like we have bangers after bangers every month. The binge-worthy-kdrama-train has yet to let up since February and your girl is living for it.
