Me and my hyper energy aside, 2020 has been a tough year for a lot of us. I am really thankful that you’ve stuck with my overly dramatic and overly emotional self this past year––it hasn’t been easy, I know. Due to the virus that shall not be named, I am sure there has been a lot of people who weren’t able to celebrate Christmas as well as New Years with their family and friends. Worry not, however, your girl is here to provide you with bite-sized Kdrama recommendation to binge-watch.

You know what they say, one episode of Korean drama a day chase those frownies away. (I totally just made that up, don’t quote me on that)
