Upcoming Korean Dramas in December 2022 We’re Waiting For

Korean dramas are the new internet hype. They are currently taking over all social media platforms in a huge way that more than half of the world is talking about a fictitious love story (P.S.- Don’t tell me you did not cry while watching 20th Century Girl). This generation is literally growing up on K- Dramas and K-Pop. It almost feels as if we’re born in a world where Kimchi and Tteokbokki are more famous than a pizza. And that’s great! As a very loyal K-Drama and enthusiastic K-Pop fan, I approve! Here’s a list of upcoming Korean dramas releasing in December 2022.
