5 Best Korean Dramas Streaming On Netflix Right Now: List Of Most Fan-Loved Korean Netflix Shows!!
Korean dramas have been in the limelight since the first season of Kingdom (the best Korean drama ever) aired on Netflix. Sure, there have been great Korean horror movies, but most people haven’t been introduced to the wonderful world of K-dramas.
For years I have been a fan of Korean dramas. I used to have separate Viki and VRV subscriptions just for DramaFever. Netflix stepped up its game of Asian series after DramaFever disappeared.
Not only do they kill it with their Korean concerts, but they have also added shows from China, Taiwan, Japan and Thailand. Today we’re just talking about K-dramas, so here’s a list of the top five Korean dramas available on Netflix right now!
5 must-watch Korean dramas on Netflix right now!
we are all dead
All of Us Are Dead is a zombie horror series based on Now at Our School by Joo Dong-webtoon Geun. It follows a group of high school students who are caught in the center of a viral outbreak.
After an accident leads to the outbreak of a zombie virus at a South Korean high school, the students are isolated from the rest of the world by the authorities.
The children must depend on each other and all the resources they can find to survive this dangerous situation as they have no supplies or means to call for help. Although the program is largely a horror story, it also touches on a variety of societal themes.

A Korean Odyssey (2017)
Journey to the West is a fantastic story. Because I live in a Chinese house, this story is often told. A Korean Odyssey (aka Hwayugi) is a refreshing new twist on a tale I’ve seen countless times before.
Hwayugi gives the ancient Chinese narrative the traditional Korean dramatic treatment, filled with a love story, including such acclaimed characters as the Monkey King and the Ox King.
Jin Seon-mi (Oh Yeon-Seo) has been able to see ghosts since she was little, making her an outcast among her peers and family. His grandmother recognizes his talent and gives him a yellow umbrella adorned with protective Buddhist charms. It helps, but she’s still overwhelmed by her talent.

Our Beloved Summer (2021)
“Our Beloved Summer,” created by Kim Youn-jin and Lee Na-Eun, is a romantic comedy written by Lee Na-Eun. Choi Ung and Kook Yeon-soo, former lovers who end up breaking up and vowing never to see each other again, are the subject of the series.
When a video they made in high school goes viral, their producer friend reunites the couple for more content. As the novel progresses, the two come to terms with their confused emotions for each other while trying to deal with their current situation in the most professional way possible.
You’ve no doubt heard of this one; in fact, it’s likely the show that brought you here! Squid Game, a 2021 Netflix Original, has risen to the top of Netflix’s most-watched lists in unprecedented time, creating a social media phenomenon and water cooler talking point.
It’s a creative take on traditional genre cliches with a stunning package that makes for a tempting binge watch, and for good reason. The program follows 456 debt-ridden contestants through a series of dangerous children’s games in hopes of earning a life-changing reward.

hospital reading list
Even in the realm of K-drama, medical dramas are nothing new. But a medical drama in which the characters are all the best doctors in their field and together form a rock band is new.
PD Shin Won – ‘Hospital ho’s Playlist’ (after ‘Prison Playbook’ and ‘Reply Series’) has created another masterpiece that portrays the ordinary life of doctors and hospital staff on a very basic human level and delves into the depths beneath seemingly simple appearances and mundane things.
‘Hospital Playlist’ tells the story of five med school buddies who are still in touch at the age of 40.
