Check out our list of recommended Korean dramas to watch while parts of the Philippines and the rest of the world remain in quarantine during the COVID-19 pandemic season.



Imagine Katniss Everdeen going back in time and getting a K-drama reinterpretation. The time travel plot is engaging enough, combined with excellent set design, which takes us to a dystopian South Korea, post nuclear war. “Sisyphus” combines sci-fi, mystery, action, drama, and a dash of romance in each jam packed episode. Watch new episodes on Netflix Wednesdays and Thursdays.

‘River Where the Moon Rises’

Ji Soo’s bullying scandal may have taken the spotlight from the drama itself. However, “River Where the Moon Rises” is still a must watch for those who love political and historical dramas. Watch Kim So-hyun channel her inner Mulan as Princess Pyeonggang tries to reclaim the power of the throne. “River Where the Moon Rises” is now streaming on Viu Philipines.


“Vincenzo,” starring Song Joong-ki, is about an Italian mafia consigliere who fled to Seoul to recover the gold hidden under a building. But if you’re thinking “The Godfather” because of the mafia element, think again. There’s more comedy and heart to this K-drama than you would expect. New episodes drop Saturdays and Sundays on Netflix.

‘Run On’

What happens when a former national athlete (Im Si-wan) meets a film translator (Shin Se-kyung)? Sparks fly of course! We can’t help but appreciate the good visuals of these two leads. New episodes of “Run On” are up every Wednesday and Thursday on Netflix.


We need to change the world, so that the people can live life to the fullest, without fear.
