Next week is a K-drama jackpot: three new Monday-Tuesday dramas, two new Wednesday-Thursday dramas, two Friday-Saturday dramas, and two Saturday-Sunday dramas.

Quantity? Check.

Quality? We have hope.

The K-drama gods have blessed us with a lot of hope for this upcoming cycle. If one drama doesn’t work out, we can move on to the next one. If that one doesn’t, the next. We’re going to be damn busy — and damn tired — in the coming months trying to keep up with all the dramas. The good news is that there will be so much to watch, with new episodes being aired every day, that we won’t be hung up waiting an entire week for a single drama.

Here’s what’s coming.
