Seven new K-dramas in August

 

The Korean producers try to compensate the ending of the summer with lots of interesting new K-dramas. On 12th of August on tvN, “ Cinderella and the Four Knights” will air for the first time, Fridays & Saturdays at 11:00 pm. Based on the novel “Cinderellawa Nemyungui Kisa” by Baek Myo, this drama is a modern Cinderella story. Eun Ha-Won (Park So Dam) is a high school student who dreams to became a veterinarian and her last option to fulfil her dream is to move in a mansion, Sky House, with three chaebol cousins under same special conditions.
Kang Hyun Min (Ahn Jae Hyun), Kang Ji Woon (Jung Il Woo) and Kang Seo Woo (Lee Jung Shin) will try to live under the same roof with Ha-Won. Hmm.. this story looks like the one from “You’re Beautiful” starring Jang Keun Suk, Park Shin Hye and Jung Yong Hwa. Therefore, it will be fun.

One thought on “Seven new K-dramas in August

  1. I’m sooo behind on Korean Dramas. The last one I watched must’ve been about 3 years ago. I feel like there’s even a whole new generation of starts now (you know how fast they change). Slow Breeze sounds cute, I’m not big on historical dramas so it’ll probably take a kickass story to get me to watch one again. Although… Moon Lovers {insert thinking emoji} does look like a solid one. I mean IU, Lee Joon Ki, need I say more. Anyhow, nice blog you got here.
