It’s been a tough year for outdoorsy people; there aren’t that many chances to go out and enjoy a movie at the theatre. But this pandemic has provided us with a silver lining! There are plenty of top-quality long-form K-Drama TV shows that can keep us entertained even as we’re holed up at home, taking shelter from the rainstorms.
Avoid getting health scares and stay at home! Here are some of the most popular K-Dramas on Netflix:
You would think K-Dramas wouldn’t really intersect with Italy so much, but two worlds collide as we follow a Korean man adopted into Italian mafia life.

Singles would adore the idea of an app identifying people who have crushes on you. It would definitely make love easier — but does it really? That’s what Love Alarm tries to explore with a love triangle.
Crash Landing on You
A South Korean woman crash lands into North Korea after paragliding in bad weather, and a handsome North Korean captain helps her get home. Another lighthearted K-Drama for the books.
