    That’s a very long list. I’m going to add to my ever growing list. My pick is the same as yours. I don’t even care about the premise. I love both Yeo Jin Goo and Moon Ga Young so I will be checking this one out. 🙂 I am currently watching Our Blues and really enjoying it so far.

      That it is! I’m the same in that Yeo Jin Goo and Moon Ga Young are enough to sell it for me, lol. The premise does look fun too though. Glad to hear your enjoying Our Blues. That one looks so promising with the large stellar cast and great writer.


  2. As I am in Australia (international fan) , I am relying on Netflix for KDrama.
    I have watched nearly all the currently offered Australia Netflix KDramas. I hope all if these series get shown here. I have started watching Wedding Hell but I also like crime, supernatural, law court and historical dramas. This list is very good.
    Thank you

      Luckily, Netflix is picking up a lot more kdramas these days. They probably won’t all be on the list, but I’m sure Netflix will get several of them. Hopefully, it’s some of the ones you want to watch most 🙂


  3. As a woman, I think Korean male actors are so hot!

      It has! lol 😅 The Hong sisters are the main selling point for me, so I’m curious to see what they have in store for this one. Also, I really love Jung So Min 🙂
