Is it just me or 2020 went by excruciatingly slowly but at the same time one day it was March and the next thing I knew it was December. The only way I know I have actually lived the rest of these meshed-together months of 2020 is because of all the Korean Dramas I watched this year.

Twenty-Twenty may have been one of the worst years in history but for kdramas, it was one of the finest years.

This is a reference post for anyone interested in navigating my blog, or for anyone looking for my brief thoughts on 2020 dramas

I have added links to my reviews for the dramas wherever I could (if you want to know my detailed thoughts on any of the dramas I have previously written about). I hope you find some new dramas to add your watch list in here.


The Uncanny Counter; True Beauty; Mr Queen; Awaken

Dramas I am currently watching and absolutely loving. I am sure most (if not all) of these dramas will make it into my favourites list next year.


Memorist; When My Love Blooms; The Cursed; XX; Into The Ring; A Piece of Your Mind; Tell Me What You Saw; My Holo Love

You know sometimes you are just not in the mood to watch something no matter how good or interesting it might be. When I started these dramas I was not in the mental state to catch up with them. They were good and at the very least one-time watch dramas in my opinion.

I was especially enjoying XX, When My Love Blooms, and A Piece Of Your Mind when they were airing but my mood didn't allow me to finish them (but hopefully soon).


Born Again, Kkondae Intern; More Than Friend; Tale of the Nine-Tailed; Sweet Munchies; To All The Guys Who Loved Me

Dramas that I have no plans of going back to in the near future. They were okay-ish in my opinion however something or the other turned me off from them, hover over the picture to know my reasons for dropping them. A special shoutout to Born Again for being one of the worst dramas I have seen this year.


Crash Landing On You, Itaewon Class, Hospital Playlist, Extracurricular, It’s Okay to not be okay, Romantic Dr 2, Find Me in Your Memory, Kingdom: Season 2, The King: Eternal Monarch

Stranger Season 2, Soul Mechanic, Hyena, Dinner Mate, The World of Married, When the Weather is Fine, Where your eyes linger, Twenty Twenty, Backstreet Rookie

Was it love?, Hi Bye, Mama!, Flower of Evil, Do you like Brahms?, Record of youth, Eighteen Again, Nobody Knows, Mystic Pop-Up Bar, Kairos, Start-Up

The links in the drama name will take you to my in-depth thoughts of the drama. These dramas are at least a one-time watch (except maybe Backstreet Rookie but that is just my personal opinion).

You can find my recommendations for the 2020 kdramas here:
