9 Upcoming Dramas With Confirmed Lead Cast

Upcoming dramas

Almost every other day, I get an alert that a new drama is in the works. Sometimes the actors that were originally in talk to star in those dramas decide not to take on the role because it is not a great fit for them or because of conflicting schedules. So new actors and actresses end up being cast for the roles. This can get very confusing. Therefore, I have decided to keep a list of the upcoming dramas with confirmed casts. I will release that list every month. Hope you find this helpful.
