Emergency Couple

Emergency Couple

15. Emergency Couple

First Aired: 2014
Episodes: 21
Director: Kim Cheol-kyu
Subgenres: Medical, romance

If you are looking for an immediately gripping, fast-paced medical drama, this one should be your first choice. Emergency Couple tells the story of med school students Oh Chang-Min and Oh Jin-Hee. They fall in love with each other while studying in school but unfortunately end up separating because of familial and financial pressure. Six years later, however, they discover that there's no escape from love when they cross paths once again while interning in the same hospital.

I loved the whole cast in this series, especially Song Ji Hyo (from Running Man). The show has everything I want in a good drama—a wonderful story, cute and funny scenes, some fighting action, a great cast, and plenty of lessons in morality. This is also one of just a few K-dramas I've seen with a totally satisfying ending (cue bloopers and adorable flashbacks!).

Doctor Stranger

Doctor Stranger

14. Doctor Stranger

First Aired: 2014
Episodes: 20
Directors: Jin Hyuk and Hong Jong-chan
Subgenres: Medical, romance

Do you love action, romance, and medicine all wrapped into a supremely intriguing drama? Then you will probably obsess over Doctor Stranger for all 20 episodes. But beware—this series isn't quite as formulaic or predictable as some other Korean dramas. You will understand what I mean once you get into it.

Park Hoon, a young lad from South Korea, gets kidnapped by North Korean operatives along with his father, world-famous surgeon Park Cheol, who is brought to North Korea to operate on the "Dear Leader" (dictator). The patient's health improves, but the father-and-son duo daren't out of the woods yet. Park Hoon grows up in North Korea, training to become a doctor under his father. He soon falls deeply in love with a beautiful girl, but North Korean operatives put a target on his back. Watch the series to discover how Park Hoon will escape the country and whether he will succeed in the search for his first love!

Doctor Stranger has a unique and satisfying storyline. Its plot is understandable, intriguing, and sufficiently unpredictable. I recommend this series to anyone who is interested in medical dramas, but I certainly don't recommend it to anyone who is squeamish about blood. That said, it definitely made me cry on multiple occasions and kept me glued to the screen until I had binge-watched the whole series.

Liar Game

Liar Game

13. Liar Game

First Aired: 2014
Episodes: 12
Director: Kim Hong-sun
Subgenres: Mystery, thriller

If you like tricky math games and dark manga, this drama is worth checking out. Liar Gamedoes a great job of posing tricky questions and providing non-answers in a way that had me insatiably curious to finally get to the ending. At 12 episodes, it's a pretty easy series to binge-watch. (If you are looking for even more short and binge-able series, check out this list of K-dramas you can watch in one weekend.)

The show is based on the Japanese manga of the same name. The drama revolves around contestants that take part in a reality game show called Liar Game in which ordinary people are given the opportunity to earn millions of dollars. The contestant who manages to cheat the others ends up as the winner.

One of the contestants is a naive girl who wants to pay off her father's debt. She gets help from a genius swindler and former psychology professor to win the show. The show itself perfectly illustrates how greed can upend morals and shows how far some people will go to get money.

I haven't read the manga or seen the Japanese version, so I can't make any comparisons, but I can say that the story was interesting and the drama thrilled me and kept me guessing throughout all of its tightly plotted 12 episodes.

Trailer

City Hunter

City Hunter

12. City Hunter

First Aired: 2011
Episodes: 20
Director: Jin Hyuk
Subgenres: Action, thriller

If you are looking for a dramatic series full of action, martial arts fights, a well-thought revenge plot, and romance, then give this one a shot. City Hunter is the secret identity of Lee Yoon Sung, a man whose only purpose in life is to get revenge on those who killed his father many years before. Yoon-Sung has been training for this vengeance since he was a child, and he distances himself from anyone who distracts him from his task. Despite his best efforts, he faces a tough challenge as he develops feelings for a woman he works with.

I loved how the director balanced romance with the allure of revenge. There were moments when the tension was just killing me. Just don't watch too many episodes in a row, or you might have a heart attack.

Trailer

Healer

Healer

11. Healer

First Aired: 2014
Episodes: 20
Directors: Lee Jung-sub and Kim Jin-woo
Subgenres: Action, thriller, romance

This one is another action-drama. Actually, it has a little bit of everything—drama, action, romance, and mystery. Healer is a series you should include on your watchlist simply because of its great performances and storyline. The series follows a star reporter who seeks the help of a spy named Healer to help him to unveil the dark truth behind the people who have been in power for too long.

I loved the acting by the entire cast of Healer. This gripping and intense drama will have you on the edge of your seat and provoke a wide range of emotions as you become attached to its characters. I loved that both the male and female characters were strong. It's a solid love story without any of the clichéd comedic love triangles. If you enjoy good action, romance, and political drama, this series is definitely for you.

Trailer

Kill Me, Heal Me

Kill Me, Heal Me

10. Kill Me, Heal Me

First Aired: 2015
Episodes: 20
Directors: Kim Jin-man and Kim Dae-jin
Subgenres: Romance, comedy, medical, suspense

Heart-wrenching, heartwarming, and unforgettable—these are the words that came to mind after I finished this show. Kill Me, Heal Me is a comedy-drama about a third-generation billionaire who suffers from memory lapses and multiple personality disorder caused by a traumatic experience in his childhood. As his personality scatters into seven different identities, he secretly asks for the help of a first-year psychiatry student in treating his disorder. Eventually, she falls in love with one of his personalities.

What sets this series apart from the average medical drama are its constant twists and turns. It's almost impossible to get bored while watching it since something exciting in every episode. If you are tired of typical dramas with predictable plots, I definitely advise you to watch Kill Me, Heal Me.

Trailer

Moonlight Drawn by Clouds

Moonlight Drawn by Clouds

9. Moonlight Drawn by Clouds/Love in the Moonlight

First Aired: 2016
Episodes: 18
Directors: Kim Sung-yoon and Baek Sang-hoon
Subgenres: Historical, coming-of-age, romance, comedy

Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, or Love in the Moonlight as it's also often called, is a historical romance with some light melodrama. It features a lovely, charismatic cast along with fantastic sets, costumes, and writing. Its touch of modern humor gives it a fun and playful feel.

This historical coming-of-age drama tells the story of a prince that falls deeply in love with a girl disguised as a eunuch. The pair faces a series of formidable challenges as they battle the odds to protect their secret relationship and overcome threats to the throne. The first half of the series focuses primarily on the couple's romance and fun dynamic, while the second half centers primarily on politics.

This show definitely took me for a ride. I don't think it is an exaggeration to say that Love in the Moonlight is an exceptional coming-of-age drama. If you like this one, consider checking out these other historical K-dramas.

Prison Playbook

Prison Playbook

8. Prison Playbook

First Aired: 2017
Episodes: 16
Director: Shin Won-ho
Subgenre: Black comedy

This series has many things to offer. Each story it tells will touch you, and you will love each of the main characters. Its portrayal of friendships—both in and out of prison—is heartwarming.

Prison Playbook tells the story of a baseball player who is sentenced to prison time. Flashbacks from the past slowly reveal why he and some other characters ended up incarcerated. The characters' personal stories are absolutely beautiful, but overall, the show feels more like a comedy than a crime/law drama.

Although it did seem a bit vague and unclear at the beginning, I ended up enjoying this series quite a bit. In the first few episodes, I learned very little about the story and characters, as each episode focuses on one particular struggle that the lead character goes through. As the story continued to unfold, however, I saw more beauty in it and learned more about the characters.

Trailer

Goblin: the Lonely and Great God

Goblin: the Lonely and Great God

7. Guardian: The Lonely and Great God/Goblin

First Aired: 2016
Episodes: 16
Directors: Lee Eung-bok, Kwon Hyuk-chan, and Yoon Jong-ho
Subgenres: Fantasy, romance

If you like fantasy romances with stories that span centuries, you should give this one a try. Goblin (also known by other names including Guardian: The Lonely and Great God) is an interesting ride with a fresh and unique story told beautifully across 16 episodes in a visually stunning manner.

The story focuses on a modern-day goblin, or protector of souls. He needs a human bride to end his cursed immortal life. When he finally finds her, however, he realizes that he doesn't really want his life to end.

Goblin made me laugh as often as it made me cry. I was blown away by its epic love story, spectacular bromance, heartwarming romance, and unrelenting mystery and suspense! The unique premise blended perfectly with the mystery of the characters and the unexpectedness of the drama.

Trailer

Pinocchio

Pinocchio

6. Pinocchio

First Aired: 2014
Episodes: 20
Directors: Jo Soo-won and Shin Seung-woo
Subgenres: Family, romance, comedy

Are you looking for a drama with a complex story? Watch this one and you will be stunned over how just how much it manages to pack into 20 episodes. Pinocchio tells the story of a man who was terribly wronged by a cold-hearted reporter. All the man can think about is revenge. Suddenly, he develops feelings for the daughter of his enemy. The girl has "Pinocchio syndrome," so every time she lies, she also hiccups. More often than not, this forces her to tell the truth.

I found this K-drama so gripping and intelligently written that I simply didn't want it to end. Initially, I decided to watch it simply because of its main theme, which is relevant today in the era of fake news and misleading headlines. In retrospect, however, my favorite things about it were the brutal development of the characters, their thought-provoking decisions, and their utterly unexpected actions.

Trailer

Woman of Dignity

Woman of Dignity

5. Woman of Dignity

First Aired: 2017
Episodes: 20
Director: Kim Yoon-chul
Subgenres: Mystery, thriller

If you are looking for an intense and fast-paced mature drama with excellent acting, dialog, and comedic flourishes, you should give this melodrama a go. Woman of Dignity centers on the life of a rich family. The comfortable life of the elegant Woo Ah-Jin, who lives a luxurious life due to her wealthy father-in-law, slowly comes apart with the arrival of the new caretaker for the rich man. Park Bok-Ja, the new caretaker, is a poor woman. She enters the household with a singular goal—to become part of the family and lift herself out of the lower class once and for all.

When I discovered there were two female leads in this series, I was immediately hooked. But there are also many supporting characters that each have their own interesting story. I was glad that the series did not focus entirely on male-female romance (as so many K-dramas tend to do) and instead explored non-romantic interpersonal relationships and relatable societal woes.

Trailer

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

4. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

First Aired: 2017
Episodes: 16
Director: Lee Hyung-min
Subgenres: Fantasy, thriller, romance, comedy

If you are still looking for a fun drama that mixes romantic comedy with some darker crime elements (and features adorable leads with unreal levels of cuteness), then Strong Woman Do Bong Soon should be your next watch. This show is fronted by a strong heroine and an appreciative, dreamy hero.

On the outside, Do Bong Soon seems to be small and fragile, but she is actually a woman with superior strength handed down to her from female members of her family. She wants to keep this secret, as she has fears of being considered a weirdo. One day, Ahn Min Hyuk, the CEO of a game company, witnesses her powers. The man becomes attracted to and intrigued by her. Soon, he faces a threat to his life, so he decides to hire the girl as his bodyguard.

Trailer

The Heirs

The Heirs

3. The Heirs

First Aired: 2013
Episodes: 20
Directors: Kang Shin-hyo and Boo Sung-chul|
Subgenres: Teen, romance

The Heirs is a satisfying drama that tells the story of star-crossed lovers Kim Tan and Go Eun Sang. Kim Tan is the rich heir to the Empire Group. He comes to the U.S. to attend school. While living in the States, he meets Go Eun Sang, who came to the country with her sister with the hope of a better life. Tan meets Sang at the lowest moment of her life. His heart breaks for her and he decides to take her to his home in Korea. Things get complicated when we discover that Eun Sang's mother is a housekeeper in Tan's home. And there are even more surprises ahead.

The storyline is nothing groundbreaking, but it's a fascinating new take on something everyone has watched a million times. I like that it's modern, youthful, quirky, funny, and equal parts romantic and sad. It's a great show for those days when you want to feel warm and comfortable.

Trailer

My Love From the Star

My Love From the Star

2. My Love From the Star/You Who Came from the Stars

First Aired: 2013
Episodes: 21
Director: Jang Tae-yoo
Subgenres: Sci-fi, fantasy, romance, comedy

If you are a fan of fantasy melodramas, you should definitely check this one out. This drama took the world—not just Korea—by storm when it aired. My Love From Another Star (also called You Who Came from the Stars) tells the story of a centuries-old alien with superpowers. He is trapped on Earth and is working as a university professor. All he can think of is how to get back home, but he changes his mind when he meets a popular actress.

This K-drama has everything I could possibly want. It has believable and charismatic leads, an evil villain, romance, comedy, melodrama, and time-travel all blended together in 21 must-see episodes. I definitely recommend My Love from the Star to fans of sci-fi, teleportation, and time stopping. Each of these concepts is presented here in a breathtaking way. The great chemistry between the two leads and the series' unique sense of humor kept me watching until the end.

Trailer

Descendants of the Sun

Descendants of the Sun

1. Descendants of the Sun

First Aired: 2016
Episodes: 16
Directors: Lee Eung-bok and Baek Sang-hoon
Subgenres: Romance, action

Descendants of the Sun was a mega-hit when it first aired on TV. It had ratings of over 40% and it won several KBS drama awards. Since the series was produced before its airing, the storyline couldn't be extended simply due to viewer ratings. Apparently, that's the reason why it ended after 16 episodes despite its massive popularity.

This love story revolves around a woman who is leading a medical team that saves the lives of a special forces unit that carries out secret missions. The action is set in Uruk, a fictitious country in a state of war. The protagonist and the captain of the unit both deal with life-and-death situations every day. But will they seek love and risk heartbreak in the midst of all this?

The series is rounded out by an awesome cast, nice music, a wonderful storyline, and great chemistry between the leads. It's safe to say that any K-drama fan is unlikely to come out disappointed. I enjoyed the romance in the series, and it also gave me a rare look at the sacrifices that our real-life doctors and servicepeople make. In my opinion, Descendants of the Sun is worthy of all the buzz and high ratings it received.

Bonus: Must-Watch Romantic Korean Dramas (and Comedies)

Romantic comedy is easily the most popular genre of K-drama. There are many common tropes that are frequently seen in these types of series, such as a handsome male lead searching for his true love, an awkward-but-comedic comedic love triangle, or star-crossed lovers overcoming obstacles together. Here are some recommendations for the best romantic comedy K-dramas out there.

  • Successful Story of a Bright Girl
  • Full House
  • My Girlfriend Is a Nine-Tailed Fox
  • Sassy Girl Chun-hyang
  • Boys Over Flowers

guarantined in 2020 on September 06, 2020:

Would add Chocolate on the list.

sheksingh on August 28, 2020:

List is good but it has some old/ formula dramas i would rather update this list with

My Mister, Mr sunshine,Scarlet hearth,Hotel del luna,Signal, LIVE, CLOY, Be Melodramatic, Bcos this is my first life,Stranger etc

And you can never go wrong with what Ms Elizabeth recommends in the k Drama world if you find her say hi from me!

K-FAN on August 21, 2020:

What about Mr Sunshine......HOw in the world does that mow not make this list..its the absolute best, IRIS is another excellent one for action too.

I listen to the soundtrack of Mr. sunshine once a week.

Lee on August 17, 2020:

Goblin. So many life lessons here. Not your ordinary kdrama

Jacqueline G Rozell on August 05, 2020:

So many good Asian dramas. I have watched many of them multiple times. The only thing that I don't like are the ones with so many episodes that spend ten or fifteen of them with the couples apart. It's better when they are together, even if they are fighting.

electron on August 05, 2020:

as korean and tamil were so similar i can able to understand most of the

conversation without seeing subtitles very clearly

goblin sorry Dokkaebi is my lovable k drama though it has the bittersweet ending i love that

and i often dream that im in the Dokkaebi scene as a main role hahahaha

Shawindi Silva from Sri lanka on August 01, 2020:

There are plenty of great K-dramas and once we start watching we can't stop ourselves and you did a great job making a collection with the best dramas. But I think CHICAGO TYPEWRITER, WHAT'S WRONG WITH SECRETARY KIM?, ABOUT TIME need to be added. They are actually great dramas. And there are many more good ones.

Once again good job !!!

Jacqueline G Rozell on July 31, 2020:

This list needs to be updated with dramas such as The K-2, Vagabond, Arthdal, King: Eternal Monarch, and others. Tunnel, while I am not sure of its age, is fabulous, as is some of the others now on Netflix.

Elizabeth on July 30, 2020:

Why recommend the formula and makjang-ish type of dramas?

The only one that deserves to be in a top 15 list from here, is Prison Playbook, tbh. Kdramas have move on, they're not all the same soap opera anymore.

I mean, there are dramas like Secret Forest, Black, FBND, Ho Gu's Love, Love Affairs in the Afternoon, Sky Castle, Hello Monster, My Ahjussi, Live, Just Between Lovers, IOTL, Misaeng, Reply 88', Search WWW, Be Melodramatic and Moments of 18; so putting The Heirs, City Hunter, etc, in the list is kinda annoying, after all the crap people talk about kdramas being bad productions.

Ps. never trust the ratings and the popularity of the drama

Jacqueline G Rozell on July 28, 2020:

Still have to give Vagabond the Number One place for best drama. The K-2 is right up there and King: Eternal Monarch is a wonderful drama and love story. Arthdal is excellent as well. Rooting hard for part 2 of Vagabond and Arthdal.

Richard on July 17, 2020:

wow missing quite a bit of great shows.... Hotel De Luna, Memories of the Alhambra and Scarlet Ryeo!

Racheal on July 16, 2020:

I've watched many K dramas and they are OK and watchable but hands down I have to give it up for Sky Castle and Doctor Prisoner!

I enjoyed them mostly because I never heard about them nor watched any trailer and I was never disappointed with the plot, cast + their chemistry!

I wish other programmes and movies would captivate the viewer that much. Bravo to the show makers!

Baratol on July 12, 2020:

I hope “Descendants of the Sun” writer will write for season II it was a huge success

DS (descendants of the sun.) on July 11, 2020:

Descendants of the sun best k drama ever hope there will be a season 2 although it is quit hard

넘나 제밌다..

Beng on July 08, 2020:

Mr. Sunshine best picture!

Jacqueline G Rozell on July 06, 2020:

Finally watched Chicago Typewriter and loved it right up until the last two minutes. Lousy ending. I felt cheated. The King: Eternal Monarch was superb and I am awaiting Part II. And if I don't get a Part II of Vagabond I may expire of longing!

Isha Gyafuah on July 06, 2020:

Good

Joss on July 06, 2020:

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo should be right up there!

Descendants of the sun

Jacqueline G Rozell on April 25, 2020:

Moonlight Drawn By Clouds and City Hunter are both good dramas. I don't know if this list has not been updated, but there are others I would add such as The K-2, Voice, The Tunnel, and the fabulous Vagabond.

Pratima on April 03, 2020:

SO far I have watched DOTS, The Heirs, Strong woman do bong soon, My love from the star, Healer, K2, W, Suspicious partner, Melting me sofly What wrong with Secretary kim Playful kiss, High Society,The Legend of Blue sea, Pinnochio, While you were sleeping

Mina Hiran on April 02, 2020:

W TWO world apart habe to be there too BUT the Others are cool too

Jacqueline G Rozell on March 30, 2020:

So far, Vagabond is still at the top of my list. The K-2, City Hunter, The Lies Within, and I will ALWAYS love Playful Kiss. Arthdal Chronicals, if it follows through with a season two, should shape up to be a real epic that is a "must see" for those that like historical drama (keeping in mind this is a fantasy historical. So many, many, good ones!

Sabbir ahammed on March 30, 2020:

Hotel Del Luna was a phenomenal drama! A must watch!!! It should be included in this list.

is something wrong with my taste for TV? i seriously think descendant of the sun is horribly overrated and actually very bad drama and prison playbook is like the best shit ever made (beats like game of thrones or some shit) :-D

"She Was Pretty" is my favorite drama ♡♡♡

Why is “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim” not on the list? It’s got great reviews and considered one of the best Korean romantic comedy of all times.
