We love watching K-Dramas. Although a majority of the series are rom-coms or melodramas, we love how the plot thickens when something unexpected happens. And oh, don’t get us started with the amount of eye candies ?

If your favourite series is coming to an end and you need new K-Dramas to become couch potatoes for, we’ve got the right list for you. Here are 7 new dramas to obsess over this September:
