Here are some of the most popular K-dramas that you must add to your watchlist as soon as possible!

The genre of South Korean dramas or K-Dramas is a phenomenon in itself. One might wonder what is the big deal about the South Korean entertainment industry that everyone’s so obsessed with it. It’s not much, but EVERYTHING. From multitudinous genres to stellar cinematography plus exotic locations and the ever famous cliffhangers in every episode to the emotional roller-coaster of storylines, K-Dramas is an all-inclusive premium package of entertainment!

Korean dramas date back to the 1960s when it was a mere model of education, tightly controlled by the military government of the country, in order to educate the public. Now, ‘Hallyu’ also known as the Korean wave – is a word referred to Korean pop-culture that includes K-dramas, K-pop, K-food that are well-liked and appreciated even by the non-Koreans. These dramas have now caved through different countries and dug deep into the hearts of people.

The gripping plots focus on family, love, marriage, friendship as a whole. K-dramas are pictured in different eras – be it a modern-day ambitious businesswoman surviving in the age of the internet or a financially struggling young girl working in a Coffee Shop dressed as a boy due to baffling situation, to a story of a superstar pitcher who is put behind the bars for attacking a man who sexually assaults his sister – they have it all! What sets it apart is the no-nonsense scripts which are constantly developing and upgrading in every episode. Surprisingly most of these K-dramas are limited to a maximum of 25 episodes!
