More New Korean Dramas to Captivate Our Attention This Coming November 2020
After half a year of hiatus from watching Korean dramas, to welcome November, your girl just got back into it again a few days ago and as usual, I am totally hooked.
Even compared to American tv shows, or other Asian tv shows, there is just something about Kdramas that keeps me coming back for more. If you ask me to pinpoint just what it is exactly about Kdramas that makes me love it so much and just want to binge-watch Korean dramas all day every day, I wouldn’t be able to tell you. It could be that most of it is bite-sized with only one season, or the soft dewy look of the actors and actresses, it could be because of the language. Or it could just be a combination of all of those above put together that made so many people around the world obsess over it.
Now that I am finally back in full swing in the Korean drama binge-watching mood, I’m so excited to see what more new Korean dramas that are going to captivate our attention this upcoming November in 2020.
