Korean dramas are all abuzz globally for their out-of-the-box and, often, swoon-inducing stories. For many, the entry point to the K-drama blackhole was the 2019-2020 breakthrough, Crash Landing on You, which features Son Ye-jin as Yoon Se-ri, a stylish heiress who met Captain Ri Jeong-hyeok (Hyun Bin) on a fateful encounter when she was accidentally drifted to the Korean Demilitarized Zone and into North Korea while paragliding.
And who can ever forget the now three-season drama, The Penthouse: War in Life with its jaw-dropping twists and turns? Its characters’ uber-luxurious lives and the secrets behind them are totally mind-blowing. The same goes with Mine, a story that follows the lives of a super-rich family in South Korea and the controversies that surround them. It highlights strong and ambitious women, including the characters Seo Hi-soo and Jung Seo-hyun, who are trying to find the real 'mine'.
This year, viewers also got hooked to Vincenzo, which stars heartthrob Song Joong-ki as Vincenzo Cassano, an Italian mafia consigliere, and posh lawyer Hong Cha-young played by Jeon Yeo-been. But besides the amazing plots, what makes these dramas more interesting are the fashionable characters that lend pizazz to every scene.
