This December 2022, There Are 5 New Korean Dramas Worth Watching

The great Korean dramas, especially the romantic ones, may be unforgettable, but there is much more to K-dramas than fairy-tale romances — case in point: the December 2022 releases.

This list is guaranteed to tear at your emotions and rev up your pulse thanks to its excellent arsenal of intriguing narratives, sizzling chemistry between the leads, and smart executions by a brilliant ensemble.

While the ‘K’ in dramas continued to reign supreme throughout 2022 with fantastic releases, November was an oxymoron with light dramas like Call My Agent and serial killer crime thrillers like Somebody. December, the month of holidays and celebrations, appears to be the greatest time to binge-watch your favorite K-pop singers.

December 2022 will see the release of many new K-dramas, including Alchemy of Souls: Light and Shadow, Connect, Money Heist: Korea Season 2, and Big Bet. Prepare your favorite snacks, get comfortable on the sofa, and get ready for a crazy trip, because there’s a lot more in store for Korean drama fans.
