The Best K-dramas on Netflix

K-drama

Here at Cactus Pop we cannot get enough of binge-watching dramas on Netflix. And following on from our telenovela addiction, comes our K-drama addiction! Korean dramas are practically perfect.

Riverdale Recap: Chapter 18, When a Stranger Calls

When I found out that there would be a Betty-centric Riverdale episode titled ‘When a Stranger Calls’, I freaked out because a) I am a Betty stan through and through and b) When a Stranger Calls is one of the greatest horror movies of all times.
