Five New Dramas This Week

And will wonders never cease? DramaFever has the license for two of them! *gasp* There’s a surprisingly large spread here in terms of genres and airing dates, so here’s hoping there’s something for you here. I’ll admit to being interested in Sketch and Goodbye to Goodbye, though we’ll see whether that last one is a Viki Pass Plus or not. In any case, are any of these taking up a slot on your watch list?
