Upcoming K-Dramas For November 2015 — What Are The Most Anticipated Korean Dramas This Month?

Within the month of October, K-drama fans were treated to a plethora of unique shows sure to keep their interest. Twenty Again, starring Choi Ji Woo and Lee Sang Yoon, ended on a high note while She Was Pretty, starring Hwang Jung Eum and Park Seo Joon, dominated. Finally, Yong Pal concluded with the best ratings so far this year, topping off more than 20 percent.

The aforementioned K-dramas are the ones that stood out, mostly because they are doing so well not just on their respective stations in Korea, but also on Viki and DramaFever. However, with certain K-dramas ending soon, some are wondering what September has in store for fans. Thankfully, there is a new batch of K-dramas ready for viewing this coming month, as detailed by KdramaStars.

The first K-drama of notice is Oh My Venus. Formerly known as Oh My God, it stars So Ji Sub (Warm and Cozy, which is also known as Jeju Island Gatsby, Thousands Years of Love) and Shin Min Ah (The Devil, My Girlfriend is a Nine-Tailed Fox).

However, he suffers a devastating injury during his childhood days despite coming from a wealthy family. Young Ho now overcomes his problems with patience and stubbornness. Kang Joo Eun (Shin Min Ah) is a 33-year-old lawyer who is struggling to support her family. Time has effected her in which she is overweight and not as attractive as she used to be.

The second K-drama of notice is Reply 1988. Also known as Answer to 1988 or Answer Me 1988, this is kind of a spin-off (or prequel) to previous K-dramas Reply 1994 and Reply 1997.

A synopsis for the K-drama is limited in which it only says it is about a small cluster of families and is set in 1988. If it is anything like the other series, then it will center on high school or college students at the time and what they went through.
