11 Dramas To Look Forward To In August 2017


There are 11 dramas to look forward to in the month of August and I am so glad as this gives us a lot of options to choose from. It appears we are moving from legal dramas to more fantasy based dramas. As you might have perhaps noticed, Kdramas usually follow a trend or similar theme in the period they are aired. I have been very busy this month and haven’t been able to catch

up with all that is showing this month. Between school, research work and just life, I haven’t been able to watch everything on my list for July. August is just around the corner and brings us

a fresh wave of faces and stories. With the two weeks left in July, I’m hoping to catch up on the rest of the dramas and start August with no remorse.


Here is a list of ongoing Dramas:
