We Love These Korean Dramas

We wrote about these K-dramas months before they started airing. We’re now done with two and currently enjoying the other two. Check them out!


‘True Beauty’

Who doesn’t love makeovers and transformations? We do! Especially if we get to see Cha Eun-woo. “True Beauty,” starring Cha Eun-woo and Moon Ga-young, is streaming on Viu.

‘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 Wednesdays and Thursdays on Netflix.

‘Rookie Historian’

We’re entertained by this historical K-drama about a courageous female historian and a naughty Joseon prince who secretly writes romance novels. Binge-watch “Rookie Historian,” starring Shin Se-kyung and Cha Eun-woo, on Netflix.


‘Sweet Home’

A webtoon-based apocalyptic horror series about a loner teenager who moves to a new apartment after he was orphaned. As humans in his new building start turning into monsters, he and his neighbors try to survive.

‘True Beauty’

Also a webtoon-based Korean drama series, “True Beauty” tells the story of a high school girl who is bullied because of how she looks. She learns the art of makeup and transforms herself into a beautiful “goddess.”

‘Live On’

To uncover an anonymous person trying to reveal her secret, a popular high school student joins the broadcasting club. The romantic comedy unfolds when she meets the organization’s stubborn and perfectionist leader.


Kim Seon-ho

Kim Seon-ho of “Start-Up” makes fans in the Philippines sing “Akin Ka Na Lang” with his portrayal of the successful and charming Han Ji-pyeong.

Park Seo-joon

The latest South Korean celebrity endorser of Smart Communications, a top telco in the country, Park Seo-joon levels up Filipino K-drama fan’s K-lig.

Park Bo-gum

The ‘Nation’s Crown Prince’ of the Hallyu world may now be in the military, but K-drama fans in the Philippines and elsewhere continue to root for Park Bo-gum.
