Upcoming Late July – Sep. K-dramas, 2010

July 28, 2010

I haven’t really taken a glimpse at how Korean dramas are aired, but I did today. I’d figure it would be similar to how Japanese dramas are aired, but I discovered Korean dramas schedule are totally different. I’m use to seeing all the new seasons or series air around the same month (such as American or Japanese shows), but Korean dramas are spread out more and seem to have new dramas every month. At least at what the schedule from DramaWiki is showing me. I was just making an observation. Back to the subject at hand, I was only able to pick out a few new Korean dramas airing between now to the end of August. I want to wait on the majority of September – October dramas since promotion pictures, trailers and previews aren’t out yet.
