We’ve got three new kdramas airing in December, and they’re all wildly different. The one that has all of my attention is Solomon’s Perjury–and so far, it’s also the only one that doesn’t seem to be licensed yet.
2016 really is the worst. (Edit: Viki has announced the license!) You can see December’s schedule on the drama calendar.
