If you’re tired of the same old actors and plot lines you see on American TV, your next favorite show may just be from the other side of the world. K-dramas are growing in popularity outside of Korea, and here’s why you should join in on this trend. Trust us, you’ll thank us later!
1. They’re clean and family-oriented
Most Korean TV shows are for general audiences, which means you rarely see violence, substance abuse, nudity, or sexual content. Here are our top clean TV show recommendations!
2. They’re aesthetically pleasing
Korean directors know what’s up! Their cinematography is beautiful. Some of our favorite directors are Kim Kyu Tae of “That Winter, the Wind Blows” and “Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo” and Lee Eung Bok of “Descendants of the Sun” and “Goblin: The Lonely and Great God.” One of the newest aesthetically pleasing Korean shows is “Temperature of Love.” You can read more about this show here.
