K-Dramas of the Month: August 2018

As one may expect, this month has another plethora of wonderful new dramas to enjoy, and most of us are still up to our eyeballs in all of the dramas from last month, and perhaps even some of the ones from the month before that! The life of the K-drama fanatic can be difficult at times, so many dramas to watch, so little time in a day. But let us be honest, we love it! Now, if only we could find a way to watch dramas for a living! XD

These are some of the dramas we are most excited about this month!

It’ll give us all a chance to catch up and finish off maybe one or two older dramas we haven’t gotten to yet! As always our fellow drama lovers, when it is appropriate to do so, and sometimes when it isn’t, binge on! ^-^
