Cosmos’s Favorite K Drama
I have finally become a K Drama fan. Over the last few years I have seen a lot of K Drama. the reason that I am finally a K Drama fiend is because I am living in Korea, my Korean is now good enough to mostly follow the dialogue although I still need subtitles. Second, because of COVID, we’ve been mostly at home in Korea, and third, I finally just got into K Drama. I know a bit late, but what the heck.
Here are some of my favorite K Dramas- I provide a synopsis and my comment on each.
In general K Dramas come in two forms – movies and series. The series are reminiscent of Mexican telenovela – usually 16 episodes, occasionally 20, and occasionally fewer. A few have two seasons. Most run for about a month. Almost all are available now on Netflix and Hulu with English sub-titles. A few were quite controversial.
Parasite of course won the 2020 Oscar. And Minuri won best-supporting actress this year.
My favorites K Dramas so far include:
Crash Landing on You
“Move to Heaven”
Mad About You
Last Man Standing
