What's Next in Kdramaland?

It’s June, so the first half of 2016 is over. So far, so good. Don’t you think?

We had a dark and mysterious Yoo Jung in Cheese in the Trap, we’ve been time travelling with the amazing cast in Signal, crying and laughing with Big Boss and Dr. Kang Mo Yeon. Great start of the year, right? Summer is coming and so are the next interesting dramas, at least I hope so.
