If you had all the time in the world, what would you do? Several of us would probably dedicate a good portion of that time just to binge every single K-drama that piques our interest, especially now that more and more Korean shows are being made more accessible fans worldwide.
If you''re in need of a temporary escape from the real world, here are five K-dramas worth checking out. P.S. They're all available for streaming on Viu!
If you're into rom-coms
A Piece of Your Mind
This K-drama starring Jung Hae In and Chae Soo Bin features the love story of Ha Won, an AI programmer, and Seo Woo, a classical music recording engineer. In a report from Soompi, Jung Hae In shares that he accepted the role in the drama because he wanted to challenge himself by taking on an interesting role that dealt with artificial intelligence. He also adds that, unlike his character on the show, he's never had to deal with unrequited love IRL.
