Korean Dramas of 2012 Part 1.

Standard

Hello^-^ This is a list of Korean dramas that aired in 2012 between January and June. Don’t forget to check out Part Two of the dramas that aired between July and December later. If I’ve overlooked a drama, please let me know. If you’re looking for a certain title keep in mind that it may have aired the second part of the year OR look for it under its alternate title. An example would be like this: “Nice Guy” is also none as “No Such Thing As Nice Guys” or even “Innocent Man”

 Also, I’m curious as to what your favorite drama of the first half of 2012 was. So if you have time or want to, vote on the poll at the bottom. Thank you! – Side Note, the poll is in alphabetical order so it would be easier to find the drama.
