Upcoming C-dramas in March and April 2017

Legend of Chusen Season 2


With General and I and Eternal Love out of the picture, the c-drama scene has quieted down significantly and probably won't pick up until after a few months when costume dramas return for the summer.

    2. Well, this drama is facing some legal issues. It's actually going to show around the date when the trailer out. But the book author sued the production team because the production rights they had expired at that time. It won't be out until they solve this issue.
