Here is the February edition of “Korean Dramas You Need to Be Watching.” This monthly series is meant to keep you updated on what’s happening in the world of Korean dramas so that you don’t miss out on anything! We have a big premiere this month to go along with the many dramas that premiered in January.
Here are the kdramas you need to keep an eye out for in February 2016:
Descendants of the Sun
Descendants of the Sun may very well be the most highly anticipated drama this year. With Song Joong Ki making his big drama comeback after his return from the military, fans have been excited since the moment he was cast. And it looks like we have quite a nice pairing with leading lady Song Hye Kyo. Our duo will deal with relationships and love while also fighting for their lives. This is a big production drama coming from the popular writer of Heirs and Secret Garden. It certainly looks like it will be quite a ride!
Descendants of the Sun tells the story of a UN captain (Song Joong Ki) and a doctor (Song Hye Kyo) who fall in love while providing aid in a country dealing with a natural disaster and civil strife.
Descendants of the Sun is scheduled to premiere February 24 on KBS.

February is a slow month in terms of new premieres. But we had plenty of dramas that premiered in January to choose from. Of course, I’m super excited about Descendants of the Sun. I also really hope Come Back Ahjussi is a fun ride.
