K-Drama Recommendations

Hey guys! I'm back at it again with another blog post about Korean Dramas. In my birthday blog I didn't really cover too many k-dramas because I mean...that was kind of a monster of a blog post. So today I've decided that I am going to talk about all the k-dramas I recommend you check out. Make note that all of these dramas can be found on Viki and DramaFever. Links for all the shows are in the show title. Some shows have two links, one for Viki and one for DramaFever.

Warning: Even though the title is cheery and there are lots of funny moments this drama can get very serious very quickly so....tissue warning at some parts. 
Note: I obviously only watched this show to begin with for N-Oppa...but I soon fell for the entire cast. They did such an amazing job and I always re-watch this show. 

That is all I have for you guys today! Let me know if you watch any of these shows and let me know! I'll update you on my thoughts for Hospital Ship when I finish it. I decided to not upload this until after I finished Hospital Ship because OH MY GOD I was addicted. I watched the current 36 episodes in 48 hours and then finally finished the remaining episodes as they aired. I highly recommend check it out! If you have any recommendations for shows, let me know! I'm always looking for good recommendations (just note due to my attention span, it takes a while for me to watch a show unless I get captivated like The K2 and City Hunter). Also, a quick note today is actually my mom's 50th birthday! So please send many good thoughts her way so she can have an amazing day. 

Until next time! 

Ja ne!
