Must Watch Korean Dramas in 2021




Holidays are fast approaching and what better way to spend your holidays by binge watching on Korean drama or series. I find these dramas super interesting and they’re in my to watch list but I don’t have the luxury of time as of the moment so I’m thinking, why not share it to you guys. 

1.Now,We Are Breaking Up (Ongoing)

Although fashion designers ultimately wish to make their own classics that will last forever, they must also keep up with the trends that continue changing periodically. Isn’t love exactly the same? People meet and date numerous others to find the one everlasting love. But no destiny nor love lasts forever. Excuses such as “We weren’t meant to be,” or “Our time together is up,” always lead to one break up after another. Maybe this perhaps is just the way of life itself. Fashion designer Ha Young Eun is a cold-hearted realist with great beauty and a successful career. To her, men are nothing but a form of stimulation. Unlike her past when she used to be passionate about love, she now determines never to be so again. However, Yoon Jae Guk, a renowned fashion photographer who is very straightforward and honest about love, appears in front of Young Eun. This story is about how Young Eun and Jae Guk affect each other’s definition of love. Everyone has their own definition. Jae Guk, Young Eun, and her friends show how they each define love with their own different stories.

2.Let Me Be Your Knight (On going)

Leader and producer of the globally popular idol band, Luna, Yoon Tae In (Lee Jun Young) is considered by many to be the world’s greatest idol. A true musical genius, Tae In’s music has gained him an unprecedented global following, but his worldwide fame comes at a price. With the failure of the band’s most recent album, Tae In has begun to show signs of somnambulism, or sleepwalking. With stress mounting, Tae In’s sleepwalking problem is only getting worse, leaving him to wonder how he’s ever going to get this new problem under control. 

Working as a tour guide, In Yoon Joo (Jung In Sun) really only has one goal in life: to someday own the house of her dreams. Though her current job isn’t doing much to help her achieve that dream, she finds herself in an unexpectedly promising position, after a chance encounter with the world’s most popular idol, entangles both of their fates. Taking advantage of the situation, Yoon Joo somehow manages to scam her way into Luna’s residence; where she is quickly asked to cure Tae In’s condition. Though not at all qualified as a doctor, Yoon Joo agrees to pose as Tae In’s “doctor”; but living with a man who believes he’s the center of the universe isn’t easy.

 Despite their rocky start, Yoon Joo does her best to help Tae In; but no matter how hard she tries, nothing she does seems to be good enough. Will she be able to help this self-centered idol overcome his own obstacles or will she end up becoming the biggest obstacle of all?

3.School 2021 (Ongoing)

With his father’s business facing imminent bankruptcy, Ki Joon has no idea where to go, what to do, or what his future holds. Unable to follow the path of his college-bound peers, Ki Joon enrolls in a vocational high school, completely unaware that this decision will change his life forever.

 A dedicated vocational student struggling to balance both work and school, Jung Young Joo (Chu Young Woo) has big dreams for his life and he’s not afraid to work hard to make them come true.

4.One Ordinary Day (Ongoing)

On an ordinary day, a day no different from any other, a straight up university student Kim Hyun Soo makes the mistake of his life.

Hong Guk Hwa, a sad-looking mysterious girl mistakes Hyun Soo’s taxi for an on-duty cab and hops in. That was the beginning of everything. All the choices Hyun Soo made that night leads the normal university student to become the prime suspect of a violent murder case. While Hyun Soo shivers from fear and the fact that he is falsely accused, everyone still points at him as the only possible murderer. In this hopeless situation, those who stretch a helping hand are a low-life attorney, Shin Joong Han, and a criminal king who rules the prison food chain, Do Ji Tae. To prove his innocence in any way possible, Hyun Soo gives everything he got to fight against the police and the Korean prosecution.

Seeing Seung Yoo’s potential in math, Yoon Soo is determined to help the struggling youth. With time and attention, Seung Yoo’s grades begin to improve but his success in math brings with it an entirely unexpected set of problems. With rumors of a teacher-student scandal now floating around school, it doesn’t take long for Yoon Soo’s world to come crashing down around her.

So these are the 10 Korean dramas and series I’m super interested to watch,I already saw some clips of these dramas and they really caught my interest that’s why they’re on my list. I also included completed series because I know some people who don’t like to watch ongoing dramas because they can’t wait for the next episode. 

My future binge watching marathon won’t be complete without PLDT Home.They have new unli Fibr plans for as low as 1,699 that comes with landline.
