Written by: Circles.Life
Korean dramas have become everyone's favorite for years. Even the start of the global pandemic in early 2020 had been effective in boosting people's love for Kdramas.
With the strict stay-at-home regulation, video-on-demand (VOD) channels had replaced the need to go to the movie theater. Netflix as one of the best VOD channels nowadays has been presenting great movies for its viewers.
South Koreans are excellent at delivering people's wildest fantasies and dreams. A handsome hero and a beautiful heroine are two main ingredients in this delicious, lip-smacking type of entertainment.
Combined with a great plot and wrapped in a series, you could get a ton of loyal viewers in no time. Since the popularity of Korean dramas is still rising to this day, below are the 7 Netflix's top Korean shows to stream in 2022 to pair up with all that data you got from Circles.Life ;)
Boasting famous South Korean actors and actresses names such as Ro Woon, Kim Hee-sun, and Lee Soo-hyuk, a Korean drama series titled Tomorrow is ready to steal the viewers' hearts.
The story is a mix of fantasy and supernatural, featuring a band of handsome and beautiful grim reapers tasked to save suicidal humans from unholy deaths.
South Koreans are pretty familiar with the grim reaper concept. Previous famous Korean dramas like Goblin (2016) and Hotel Del Luna (2019) have included a grim reaper character in their plot.
This drama might remind you of Netflix's Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha (2021). A Korean drama about a couple who falls in love in a beautiful fisher village.
