5 New Korean Dramas We’re Excited to Watch in Spring 2021
April is here, April is here! I’m so excited to be able to welcome 2021 spring with you guys as well as all these new Korean dramas coming this spring.
These days your girl has been quite busy trying to catch up with everything. It’s always the thing of “chewing more than I can swallow” then forcing it down anyway because I’m a stubborn bitch. Such has been life the past few months. I seriously miss the days when I could just binge Korean dramas non-stop for 3 days straight, staying up all night to finish a drama.
Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, please enjoy the new upcoming KDramas in the month of April on my behalf since it doesn’t seem like your girl would be able to do so anytime soon either.
