Upcoming Releases

I think I’ve mentioned plenty of times on the blog that I’m a list person. I used to have a running list of upcoming releases for the books that I was looking forward to and while I’m still reading, I’m not reading nearly as much as I’m watching k-dramas so for now, I’m going to keep a running list of upcoming k-drama releases on the blog and this list will be it. Right now, I’m just getting all of my information from the internet so release dates and drama information might change from time to time. I’ll try to keep this list going all year but well, life happens so I can’t promise much.

Here’s the current list of upcoming k-drama releases that I’m looking forward to.
