Is there any point in discussing the popularity of K-dramas? The shows like Death’s Game, My Demon, Doctor Slump, Mary My Husband, and so many more- the list is simply endless. K-dramas have genres such as supernatural, fantasy, sci-fi, aliens, and mythical creatures- making the shows unique. Apart from creativity, Korean shows are also popular because of their innocence, fashion, and cuteness (you can’t deny that!). Here is a list of Korean Dramas releasing in February. I have picked my choices, you pick yours and set a reminder.
