It’s official, the weather is starting to get colder in Korea! And nothing makes me want to cuddle up under warm blankets and watch a drama like the cold. That being said, it’s a great time for Korea to come out with some fantastic new dramas and it looks like this month is going to at least give it a go!
To be honest, I put 7 dramas in this list and I didn’t even include all of the new dramas coming out this month! So I picked and chose the dramas that I think stand the chance of being the most popular or at least those I knew enough information on to talk about!
Birth of a Beauty is one that I know is going to be a popular drama. It’s got extremely attractive and popular enough stars and the plotline is designed to be glamorous. I’d probably get more excited by it but I find the whole storyline to be rather shallow and skin deep, though I know they’ll throw in some redeeming moral of this story. Regardless I’ll check it out, although a bit reluctantly. Who knows, I’ll probably love it. I find that has a habit of happening!
The King’s Face is another drama that I think stands a chance if only because it’s the only saeguk or historical drama that’s really coming out this month and they tend to draw in a significant regular crowd. I was never really into historical dramas until I started HallyuBack, but now I’m a fan. It also helps that Seo In Guk is playing the lead, he’s proven himself to be a bit swoonworthy these last two years!
But the drama to see this month is definitely going to be Pinocchio. Admittingly, right now this one is kinda creeping me out if only because I watched this trailer back to back with the new Avengers Age of Ultron movie.. >.< Not cool yo! Beyond that creepiness though, this one’s going to be a hit if only because of the stars. While I’m currently loving Greatest Marriage and am not looking forward to another drama starring news reporters, but I will certainly tune in for these two. I adore Lee Jong Seok. I think he’s one of the best young actors in Korean dramas today and am glad he’s getting another drama in to solidify his acting ability before Yoo Seung Ho gets out of military service because to me he’s the only competition really close in age. As for Park Shin Hye, she’s one of the best young actresses in her 20’s. I’ve made a whole video about it, but my only issue is that it’s about time she learns how to kiss in a drama. Otherwise, I’m a fan and after a record year last year, think she’s played her cards smart in this year’s choice of roles.
