WELCOME TO SOME OF MY MOST ANTICIPATED DRAMAS OF 2017
Now, I know its already like late March but there still heaps of new dramas coming out so it stills counts. One of the really great 2017 k-drama that just finished airing was The Defendant, that what a heck of a show in good way. There’s only ‘Tomorrow with You ‘that is going to end this weekend that I really liked. Many C-dramas too like Eternal Love.
This Year I have been catching up on a heap of Chinese dramas because I miss my baby blues so bad. I just had to recharge with a bunch of Chinese dramas that were all really good. So that no surprise that, I have quite a bit of C-dramas on hand that I can’t wait for. Some from my homeland too. Of course, I have my beautiful K-dramas – I must emphasise that this year is filled with Saguek. There are so many coming our way!!!
Sageuk, or Korean historical drama, is the meat and potatoes of K-Drama. The rich history of the Korean peninsula provides delicious fodder for fantastical, dramatic, and re-imagined re-tellings of history. -Soompi
