Not just movies from Hollywood, there are many fan-favorite Korean drama series now available on Netflix. Gone are the days of spending minutes to search for new series to watch. The Korean drama series available on Netflix also consists of various genres, ranging from thrillers, romance, to action. For those who are still confused about what to watch, check out the following six recommendations for the best Korean dramas on Netflix.

Itaewon Class
The first recommendation is Itaewon Class. This drama series aired in 2020, starring Park Seo-joon as Park Sae-ro-yi. This drama tells the story of Park Sae-ro-yi's life after he got out of prison due to a fight with his schoolmate. Said to be one of the best Korean dramas on Netflix, you can watch Park Sae-ro-yi's hard work to take revenge on the owner of the biggest restaurant chain in Korea who is responsible for the unsolved murder case of his father.

For those who are also fans of Descendants of the Sun, you can see Song Joong-ki in action again in the drama Vincenzo. This drama series that combines dark comedy with crime-drama tells the story of Song Joong-ki's character named Vincenzo Cassano. Vincenzo is of South Korean descent who was adopted by an Italian couple. After growing up, Vincenzo became an adviser and lawyer for the mafia in Italy, but an incident forced him to return to his home country. In 2021, Vincenzo is included among the ten best Netflix dramas in the world!

Hospital Playlist
If you like watching Grey's Anatomy or dramas about doctors, Hospital Playlist can be the right series for you. The difference is, this Korean drama focuses more on the daily lives of five close friends who work at the same hospital. These five friends fill their spare time by forming a band. In 2020, the first season of Hospital Playlist had its finale airing and you can watch it again on Netflix. The second season is also available on Netflix since June 17, 2021.

This Korean drama was a trending topic in 2020. As one of the best Korean dramas on Netflix, Start-Up carries a slightly different story from other Korean dramas. This drama series tells the story of a woman who pursues success in a technology start-up company. In this drama, South Korea has its own Silicon Valley called the Sandbox. Start-Up stars Nam Joo-hyuk, Bae Suzy, Kang Han-na, and Kim Seon-ho who will amaze you with their visuals.

The Uncanny Counter
This Korean drama is a little more unique than the others on this list because the story is based on a webcomic titled Amazing Rumor by Jang Yi. The Uncanny Counter tells the story of a group of people who have special abilities called Counters. Their job is to eradicate the evil spirits that possess humans from the face of the earth. When off duty, these counters disguise themselves as noodle restaurant employees.

The last recommended Korean drama on Netflix is Kingdom. This drama series is suitable for those who like to watch movies or dramas about zombies. Just like The Uncanny Counter, this drama series is also based on a webcomic. Kingdom stars Joo Ji-hoon and tells the story of a crown prince who goes outside the kingdom to find out about the king's illness. Unexpectedly, while outside the kingdom, the prince and his bodyguards must face a zombie outbreak that has engulfed the entire kingdom.
