Time magazine this week posted an article listing the best 10 K-dramas to watch available on Netflix. It’s heavily skewed towards dramas that premiered in the past year (April 2019 to April 2020) with a new slightly older dramas. I’m listing in the order its mentioned in the article: Crash Landing on You, Itaewon Class, Mr. Sunshine, Kingdom, When the Camellia Blooms, Hi Bye, Mama!, Signal, Prison Playbook, Secret Forest, and the Reply (Answer Me) series.
