Hi everyone, 

Hope you all are doing well. Here, in Pleasanton, we are busy with end of school session activities and waiting for summer break to start desperately.  

Although my blog is all about parenting, health, kids’ arts and crafts and other lifestyle issues, and I rarely talk about entertainment stuffs here. But for writing this post, I am making an exception because the subject is quite fascinating and close to my heart.  

I am a big k-Drama fan and watching K-dramas since year 2021. I had thought many times before to share my passion for K-drama before but somehow, it did not happen.  

While planning for writing this post, I have finally picked this topic. And I am super excited to share reasons, why I liked K-dramas so much and why you should also give this a try?  

5 Reasons why you should start watching K-Dramas!

Unique plots and storylines 

I remember, during my teen days I was a big Yash Chopra and Shahrukh khan fan. Actors and directs were the first thing that I used to check before watching any movie. But  with growing age, things have changed drastically. Now, the “Content quality” and “Storyline” are most important things that make me inclined to watch any drama or movie.  

K-dramas excel in this department. Each drama has a unique storyline and plot. It seems Korian writers work passionately to share something unique with each drama to their audience. Even, when they present a predictable storyline, they make it refreshing for audience. Addition of exciting twists keeps you engaged till the end and you always look forward to upcoming episode to know what happens next? 

Excellence in various aspects (acting, cinematography, OST and much more) 

I started by praising the kdrama writers for writing unique content for their audience. But their contribution is just a beginning. K-dramas maintain their excellence in each department of drama making. Actors play their characters with so much passion and conviction that for moment, you forget that it is only a fictional character. Same thing applies to beautiful cinematography too. Everything looks esthetic because of incredible cinematography. And how can I forget to mention, the melodious OST. These melodious OST tell you the reasons, why K-POP is widely popular all over the world. 

Beautiful characters take you on emotional roller coaster ride 

Being an emotional person, I liked the content that has emotional appeal and Kdrama again tick this box too. The Kdrama characters are not only charming but they are able to make an emotional connection with their audience as well. These characters take you on an emotional roller coaster ride and make you feel connected with their respective journey. From main leads to supporting characters (like friends and neighbors), each one catches your attention and makes a unique place in your heart by their unique personality traits.  

Kdrama are comforting, heartwarming and offer a perfect escape 

This is another USP of K-dramas. I remember, it was the time of year 2021, when we were struggling with covid and lockdown things. At that time, watching K-drama have comforted me a lot. While watching, you unknowingly enter into another life and get immersed with the beautiful characters and their storyline. The conversations among characters are comforting and heartwarming and soothes your soul. Sometimes these conversations remind us our childhood friends and sometimes they force us to think “Why our practical life missed that kind of emotional quotient”? .

Moreover, you will get a perfect scape from your routine life for a moment and feel refreshed and energized after watching them.

The episode numbers are fixed (no over dragging plots or storylines) 

This is another reason that has made K-drama immensely popular. They have a fixed number of episodes (mostly 16) for most of the series. So, you do not get bored or irritated with 100 or 1000 episodes like typical Indian dramas. The Kdrama offers a wholesome entertainment experience in limited period and you feel prepared since beginning that there will be perfect happening and perfect ending on given time.  

There are so many options so choose  

Last but not the least, Kdrama offers various varieties for different genre. Starting from comedy to action and romcom to science fiction, you will get plenty of options to choose from. Moreover, Kdramas covers various real-life issues like bullying, depression etc. so well in their stories and along with entertainment, they provide some unique message for real life issues as well.  

K-drama recommendations for beginners? 

Personally, I liked emotional. Heartwarming and thought-provoking K-drama that has unique storyline or unique presentation. Here are some of the recommendations from my side to get started:  

  • Hometown Cha-cha  
  • Twenty-five-twenty-one 
  • Its ok to not be okay 
  • Run-on 
  • true beauty
  • Our blues
  • Business proposal  
  • Another miss oh 
  • Crush landing on you  
  • Extraordinary attorney woo 
  • Crush course in romance  
  • Dr. Cha 

And so many! 

I can go gaga over Kdrama for hours but I think, it is enough for today.
