Recommended Posts



Korean dramas, more popularly known as K-dramas, are television series in the Korean language, made in South Korea.

Korean dramas are popular worldwide, partially due to the spread of Korean popular culture, and their widespread availability via streaming services which often offer subtitles in multiple languages


I watch a lot of them on streaming, there are all kinds of Genres, Romance, Comedy, Crime, Mystery, Thriller, etc.

Did anyone else watch Squid Game? It's South Korean but popular worldwide right now








It's a really good series!! The ending felt like it's not the ending though (if you know what I mean lol), but there's a rumored Season 2, so I'll give them that :haha:. It's a good way to introduce the Korean culture games too ;)
