The K-Dramas of August 2017

Being a fan of Korean dramas isn’t easy, it can be really hard to keep up with the constant influx of new releases. Seriously, it never it stops! But we love it ^^

How many dramas are coming out this month? Am I interested in this storyline? Are any of my favourite actors and actresses in them?  Will this drama leave me an emotional wreck? (Probably) Do I have time to binge this? (No…) Will I anyway? (Yes!) Will I fall in love with one or all of the cast? (most definitely)

There are many things a K-drama fan must deal with, so we thought we would make it easier for our fellow fans.

Here is our list of the upcoming and recently released k-dramas of August that we recommend!
