Difficult to keep a note of the mountainful of K-Drama releases every day? We’re here to make it slightly easier for you. There’s no such thing as turning back on the Korean drama universe. Their refreshing stories, cinematography, ability to churn out unique content every week and versatile actors are just some of the many things that attract viewers to the Korean world. But it’s also rather tough to be up-to-date with them as there’s something or the other always either in the making or releasing! 

 

The first half of 2021 gave us incredible shows such as Vincenzo, L.U.C.A, Mouse, Sisyphus: The Myth, Doom At Your Service, Not So Worth It and more. While it may have been confusing to know who’s starring in which drama, against whom and where and where it will be released, we’ve got you covered. In this, we’re listing K-Dramas that will be released in July 2021, making your life easier (and your to-watch list cleaner).
