I’m mostly looking forward to Tommorow with you. Shin Min Ah is one of my favorite actresses so I can’t wait to see her in another drama. Plus the male lead is Lee Je Hoon. So I can’t wait to see their chemistry together.
I’m also looking forward to While you were sleeping. I’ll watch anything with Lee Jong Suk as the lead. But in all seriousness the storyline sounds unique and interesting. Plus I’m a sucker for Fantasy/Romance dramas. So I know I’ll probably like it.
Anyways, these are the K-Dramas coming in 2017.
Let me know in the comment section what 2017 dramas your looking forward too?
