12 Best School K-Dramas You Shouldn’t Miss

What better way to reminisce about our school days than to watch these hit K-dramas?

With the return of school these past few weeks, it’s the best time to re-imagine our youth with a hint of romance, vibrance, and joy. Thinking back to the time where most of our worries only came one day at a time, we can all use a refreshing series or two to remind us of the heartwarming memories made in the corners of our classrooms.
