1. Crash Landing On You
Everyone’s talking about it. You’ve seen all the memes. If you haven’t checked out this hit show yet, now is the time to do just that. As the title implies, a rich South Korean CEO accidentally ends up across the border in North Korea, and she must rely on a North Korean soldier’s help to try and get back home. Of course, it isn’t that easy—and for sure, a relationship blossoms along the way.
This kilig-inducing show also gives us a fascinating view of Switzerland from start until end. Now that it’s all over, you can binge-watch the entire story on Netflix and see why everyone’s fallen in love with it.
2. Itaewon Class
This ongoing inspiring K-drama is about a young man who overcomes his personal obstacles to succeed after getting expelled from school and suffering some serious tragedy. He opens his own bar and restaurant to be more like his father, striving to make it big despite having enemies in the city. It’s a heart-tugging and relatable K-drama that tackles real life lessons on hard work, friendship, family, and pursuing one’s dreams.
3. Hi Bye, Mama!
This heartwarming and innocent ghost story marks the comeback of popular South Korean actress Kim Tae-hee, beloved as one of the country’s most beautiful women, after five years. She plays a wife and mother who lives on as a ghost after dying in a tragic accident—and she is faced with the opportunity to be reincarnated if she returns home in 49 days. You can now watch the full season of Hi Bye, Mama! on Netflix.
Horror fans are going to love Kingdom. Joseon-era Korea is the backdrop for a story involving political intrigue and a whole lot of zombies, as a prince must fight back against a mysterious disease that turns people undead. The worst part is that the zombie outbreak may be an enemy’s doing!
The unmissable nature of Kingdom Season 2 will get you hooked for great thrilling action!
5. The King: Eternal Monarch
The much-anticipated K-Drama on Netflix this April, this tells the fantasy romance situated in two parallel universes between an emperor from a constitutional monarchy who seek to “seal the gateway between dimensions,” and a present-day Korean police detective who wants to protect people’s lives. From the same scriptwriter who penned the famous K-Dramas that you can watch on Netlflix – Goblin and Descendants of the Sun – this K-drama will definitely stir your heart and bring you to an all-new level of a romantic fantasy world.
