Binge-watching K-dramas is not an easy feat. Most K-dramas will require you to sit for at least one hour per episode. Not to mention, you'll also need enough time to digest all the dialogue, the feels, and the plot. But it's all honestly worth it because there are a handful of well-made K-dramas with A+ acting. Some viewers even go as far as rewatching them because they're just that good. If you need to narrow down which dramas are worth a second run, Candy asked their followers for the shows they've rewatched and these are the top answers:
Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo
Starring: IU, Lee Joon Gi, Kang Ha Neul
Period dramas aren't everyone's cup of tea, but surprisingly, this K-drama is one of the most answered shows in our poll. Go Ha Jin, played by IU, ends up time traveling back to the Goryeo Dynasty and into the body of Hae Soo. There, she meets the princes and gets intertwined in family and political shenanigans.
Crash Landing On You
Starring: Son Ye Jin, Hyun Bin
With an interesting storyline involving North Korea and a cross-border love story, it wasn't a surprise to see CLOY on this list. The supporting characters also make the drama a whole lot more interesting and worth rewatching.
Starring: Park Bo Gum, Lee Hyeri, Ryu Jun Yeol, Go Kyung Pyo
If you're fond of plots that heavily revolve around family, friendship, and feels in general, this drama is a must-watch. It also gives you a glimpse of life in Seoul for the regular peeps.
Starring: Gong Yoo, Kim Go Eun, Lee Dong Wook
Kim Go Eun, Gong Yoo, and Lee Dong Wook, 'nuff said. Fans of the fantasy genre will find this K-drama worth watching, but the cast and the plot will make you replay the episodes as often as you possibly can.
Starring: Park Shin Hye, Lee Min Ho, Kim Woo Bin, Kim Ji Won
Chaebol sons and friends-turned-enemies Kim Tan and Choi Young Do end up falling for the same girl, regular highschooler Eun Sang. There's nothing quite like reliving the good old times of high school drama and puppy love through this classic drama. It's also refreshing to see younger versions of some of your favorite K-drama stars today.
Descendants Of The Sun
Starring: Song Joong Ki, Song Hye Kyo
Ah, the K-drama that launched the Song-Song ship. While the two lead stars-turned-couple have ended their marriage, DOTS remains a popular drama and a mainstay on people's watch list. There's even a local adaptation of the show!
Hotel Del Luna
Starring: IU, Yeo Jin Goo, Lee Do Hyun
IU plays a thousand-year-old extravagant and short-tempered hotelier, which is refreshing to see for someone Korean fans have deemed as the Nation's Little Sister. She meets her match in Chan Sung, the only human employee of her mystical hotel, played by Yeo Jin Goo. The drama also features the life stories of the other characters for a more interesting chain of events.
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
Starring: Lee Sung Kyung, Nam Joo Hyuk
The highs and lows of being a young adult-from family issues, friendships and romantic relationships, to chasing after goals and dreams-you'll find those in this highly relatable K-drama.
Legend Of The Blue Sea
Starring: Lee Min Ho, Jun Ji Hyun, Shin Won Ho
Love, mermaids, reincarnations, and Lee Min Ho-all valid reasons for rewatching this K-drama. If you're not a fan of full-on fantasy stories, this drama, which mixes fantasy elements into modern-day life, might be right up your alley.
