6 Netflix Kdramas That Will Make You Feel a Certain Kind of Way

Netflix Kdrama – they are a treat to watch. Whether it be rom-com, thriller or straight-up horror, Kdramas get it right with the right amount of emotion, romance and thrill in each and every show in their own ways. Kdramas are a welcome change in our lives, they fill our rather dark watchlist with something fluffy and romantic, give us hope that not everything will go up in flames. Romantic Korean dramas, especially, give us a glimpse of people who are sensitive and empathetic. They are nice and warm and the quality of the shows, both story-wise and cinematography and production-wise, will make you go back to them again and again.

So, for those of you who need a warm hug and a cup of hot chocolate, this list has it all, in no particular order. Well, other than giving you butterflies – all of these Netflix Korean dramas are a 10/10 on our list.

Hometown Cha Cha Cha

This Netflix Kdrama, starring Shin Min-a and Kim Seon-ho, is a treat to watch. With characters who are absolutely the best but also heartbreakingly human, Hometown Cha Cha Cha will give you major feels. Love, heartbreak, a sense of belonging and sadness are all a part and parcel of this show and it’s depicted in such a wonderful way that it will stay with you for some time.

Nevertheless

Starring Song Kang and Han So-hee, Nevertheless made a lot of people sweat. I haven’t come across a lot of Netflix Kdramas that are so open and honest about sex and friends-with-benefits relationships as this romantic Korean drama. It also features the heartbreak of one-sided lovers and what it feels like to be in love with someone who doesn’t love you back. We’ve all been there, and let’s face it, it’s not easy to pack up and leave whenever you want.

Based on a webtoon, Neverthess provides a (thankfully) happy ending for all of our lonely hearts!

It’s Okay to Not Be Okay

Calm down my heart! That’s what I thought when I first saw this series. Binging it in one go really sealed the deal for me – I can’t imagine living with not knowing what happens next. The reason why It’s Okay to Not Be Okay really had an effect on me is because the show is so empathetic towards mental health issues and how love can heal.

Most romantic movies and shows out there always talk about the craziness that comes with falling in love. However, that’s not the case here. Love is patient, sometimes a bit messy and definitely very forgiving. Getting over your own demons individually to create something beautiful and healing is what love should be, and this Netflix kdrama, starring Seo Yea-ji and Kim Soo-hyun, surely gets it.

The best thing about It’s Okay to Not Be Okay is its characters. All of them are well-rounded, flawed, but likeable. They are real people with real problems. You can’t help but feel for each and every one of them – that’s the beauty of this Netflix Kdrama’s writing!

Start-Up

Start-Up isn’t just about romance. No, no. It’s as much about romance as it is about following your dreams and being passionate about something. All the characters are connected in unique ways and thus, it’s absolutely amazing to watch those relationships come together in their adulthood. Fast-paced but with a unique charm, Start-Up is a show for those who like a little more in their romantic Korean dramas. Plus, if you’re a fan of ensemble casts, then get ready to get some great actors out of this one.

Flower of Evil

6 Netflix Kdramas That Will Make You Feel a Certain Kind of Way 2

Ah, we have a thriller! I just could not stop binging Flower of Evil. Featuring some great performances from leads Lee Joon‑gi and Moon Chae‑won, Flower of Evil is a thriller that sets the mood from the start. The twists and turns that the movie takes is enmeshed with the dramatic elements of the series and if you’re someone who likes some sappy drama, this one has a ton of it, in spite of being a thriller. I was pleasantly surprised by how these two aspects came together and gave a show that is truly a nail-biter.

Vincenzo

What gets me with Vincenzo is how absolutely quirky it is. Be it Jeon Yeo‑been’s eccentric Hong Cha‑young or Song Joong‑ki’s Vicenzo himself. The show is an adventure to watch, dotted with romantic moments. It’s funny and quite thrilling and watching the characters evolve and grow is an absolute delight to watch. Plus, Vincenzo’s dreamy suits are absolutely fantastic and deserve their own show!
