5 K-dramas you need to watch right now

The K2

The K2 is about Kim Je-Ha, a soldier in Iraq who gets framed for the murder of his lover and goes on the run.  While being a fugitive, he runs into a girl in the train station running from a group of men in black.  While he tries to save her she slips away into the hands of the enemy.  When Kim Je-Ha finds out, he gives up and continues to be on the run.  Years later they meet again in an unfortunate situation.  This drama has it all, romance, comedy and action.  The episodes are an hour long each so I recommend that you have time on your hands when you watch it. 


The Penthouse is about wealthy families and their children. It follows the story of Shim Su-Ryeon, who has a crazy tragic past, and her relationship with Cheon Seo-jin, who she’s been with since High School.  It’s not all rainbows and daisies though, there is a lot of drama, action, revenge and mystery.  This show is always one of the first Koren dramas I recommend to anyone. It keeps you on your toes and keeps you guessing.  This is the perfect show for anyone that loves drama and mystery because the twists in this show are appalling.


Vincenzo follows the life of an Italian Mafia lawyer in search of Gold, but things don’t go the way he expects them to.  Throughout the show, you see a shift in his priorities and watch Vincenzo start to become more human and help others.  He also has a love interest Lawyer Hong Cha-Young, which is the opposite of him.  She would do anything to become the top lawyer, and when she meets Vincenzo they start working together, and he gets his social justice in the end.  This show is filled with so much action, drama, and romance.  The fact that this show’s plot and the pace are so different from other Korean dramas makes it so fun to watch.  

 Love Alarm

 Love alarm is about an app that lets people know if someone in the area likes them.  Jojo, the main character, lives with her aunt who is also a convenience store owner, which JoJo works at.  Her two love interests are these two friends that live together, SunOh and HyeYeong.  SunOh is a model and his father is a famous actor.  Everyone’s love alarm rings for SunOh but his only rings for JoJo.  While HyeYeong is just an ordinary student, he has liked JoJo for a while but chooses not to say anything to her.  This show is filled with romance and drama, so if you’re into that type of show I  recommend this. 

Boys Over Flowers 

Boys Over Flowers follows Geum Jan-di, a girl who saves a kid’s life and gets into a high-end private school.  When she attends school she befriends a group of guys called F4,  And two of them end up falling for her.  This is one of my ultimate KDrams, I used to watch it as a kid and I still watch it to this day.  This show is filled with romance, drama, and comedy.  It is such an addicting show once you pick it up you won’t be able to put it down.
