We’re moving closer to winter now, so we need those dramas more than ever to keep us company on the cold nights. We’ve got a really great variety of shows premiering this month, so plenty to keep things exciting.
Let’s see what we have to look forward to in this November 2019 edition of “Korean Dramas You Need to Be Watching.” This monthly series is meant to keep you updated on what’s happening in that amazing world of Korean dramas so that you don’t miss out on anything!
Here are the kdramas you should keep an eye out for in November 2019:
1. Psychopath Diary
A Yoon Shi Yoon drama is always a must watch for me, so of course, my pick for the month is Psychopath Diary. I can completely picture him in this role, and it sounds perfect for showcasing the wide range of his acting abilities. I’m also excited to see how his pairing with Jung In Sun goes since I really enjoy her too.
Psychopath Diary is about a company man (Yoon Shi Yoon) who witnesses a murder by a serial killer but loses his memory after he gets in an accident. When he wakes up, he doesn’t remember who he is and finds the serial killer’s diary in his hands which leads him to believe he is the killer. The police officer (Jung In Sun) who caused his accident works with him to find the truth.
Psychopath Diary is scheduled to premiere November 20 on tvN.
