Our obsession with all things K-drama is unstoppable. This time, we’ve compiled a list of the highest-rated Korean dramas on cable television. Consider it a tried-and-true listicle of series that any true K-fan should watch. And yes, you can watch this going through forex broker in Vietnam reviews or when doing online business.
- Boys Over Flowers
The best of the best. Consider it the Mean Girls of Korean dramas, but with the gender roles reversed. Shinhwa High School’s cruel males go by the moniker F4 (yep, like the keyboard function) and rule over the other pupils, thanks to their stunning good looks and their parents’ opulent cash accounts. However, when Geum Jan-di, a scholarship student from a poor family, takes a stand against F4’s commander, Gu Jun-Pyo, he gently but steadily falls for her. The relationship that follows is rocky, as they must deal with a disapproving mother, social differences, a love triangle, and even a car accident—all of the ingredients for a high-octane Korean drama.
- Strong Woman Do Bong-soon
Strong Woman Do Bong-soon was the highest-rated Korean drama on JTBC in terms of average ratings in 2017. The eponymous character, played by Park Bo-young, is a chaebol heir with superhuman strength who acts as a bodyguard for Park Hyung-character. This popular series, written by the same author who wrote another drama on this list, was essential in promoting the popularity of Park Hyung-Sik and actor Ji Soo.
- Descendants of the Sun
Descendants of the Sun was one of the few K-Dramas to be totally pre-produced at the time, as opposed to the more common live-shoot production approach. Following its huge popularity, additional K-Dramas began to use this strategy, which allowed producers to secure financing and distribution while also allowing the dramas to air simultaneously in China, resulting in higher earnings.
- Crash Landing On You
If you enjoy a nice star-crossed romance storey, you’ll enjoy this highly rated romantic drama. After a paragliding tragedy, South Korean heiress Yoon Se-ri (Son Ye-jin) lands in North Korean territory and falls into the arms of North Korean caption Ri Jeong-hyuk (Hyun Bin). Inevitably, romance blooms, but how will they make it through this cross-border relationship?
- Kill Me, Heal Me
After seeing this show, the terms “heartbreaking,” “heartwarming,” and “unforgettable” came to mind. Kill Me, Heal Me is a comedy-drama about a third-generation billionaire who is plagued by memory lapses and multiple personality disorder as a result of a horrific childhood experience. He covertly seeks the advice of a first-year psychiatric student in treating his illness as his personality fragments into seven other personas. She eventually develops feelings for one of his personalities. The series’ frequent twists and turns set it apart from the conventional medical drama. It’s nearly hard to become bored when watching it because each episode contains something exciting. If you’re weary of conventional narratives and typical dramas, I strongly suggest you watch Kill Me, Heal Me.
- Flower of Evil
Flower of Evil is a gripping crime thriller about a man named Baek Hee Sung, who appears to be the ideal spouse and parent. However, as with many excellent crime thrillers, things aren’t always as they seem, and his beautiful façade hides some dark, twisty secrets. As if that wasn’t enough drama, his wife, Cha Ji Won, is an investigator, which makes keeping dark, twisty secrets much more difficult.
