February, The Month of Love and New Korean Dramas –– Kdrama Recommendations

 

February here we come! As we all know, there’s this thing called Valentine’s day in February, which officially made it the month of love in my book. But this time we’re adding another thing to celebrate in February: new Korean dramas!

I mean seriously, it doesn’t get any better than this. Cold winter days, snuggling with your significant other under the blanket––or in my case with my heap of fluffy teddy bears––while binge-watching new Korean dramas. I don’t know about you boys and girls, but add some fried chicken on that fantasy and that’s my heaven on earth.

Also, can’t forget my obligatory, “Holy fuck guys, the days are passing like wind these days.” I don’t know if this has anything to do with me getting older, but it’s like one blink and before we know it it’s February.
