8 Korean Dramas For Those Who Still Cannot Let Go of Our Corn Salad
I don’t think I am the only one who is still head over heels for our Corn Salad Vincenzo even after a few days of trying––and failing––to move on from this show.
It has been a while since I last feel this way. I think the last time where I just rolled on my bed being a sad caterpillar after finishing a show was Crash Landing on You and that was almost 2 years ago now. As much as I dislike being in this state of being unable to move on, there is a masochist part of me that is enjoying it as well knowing that I will have to wait a while before I get to feel this empty hole over a show again.
Despite knowing that fact though, your girl will not give up in her search for the next best korean drama. Best way of getting over someone is to get under someone they say, that is exactly what I am planning on doing. In order to get over Vincenzo, I shall get under my blankets in my mission to find other Kdramas to binge watch. Join me on my journey, my friends!
