Binge-watching K-dramas is not an easy feat. Most K-dramas will require you to sit for at least one hour per episode. Not to mention, you'll also need enough time to digest all the dialogue, the feels, and the plot. But it's all honestly worth it because there are a handful of well-made K-dramas with A+ acting. Some viewers even go as far as rewatching them because they're just that good.

If you need to narrow down which dramas are worth a second run,'s followers have some advice. Below are their most rewatched shows:

1. Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

Starring: IU, Lee Joon Gi, Kang Ha Neul

Period dramas aren't everyone's cup of tea, but surprisingly, this K-drama is one of the most answered recommendation in the poll. Go Ha Jin, played by IU, ends up time-traveling back to the Goryeo Dynasty and into the body of Hae Soo. There, she meets the princes and gets intertwined in their family and political shenanigans.


2. Crash Landing on You

Starring: Son Ye Jin, Hyun Bin

With an interesting storyline involving North Korea and a cross-border love story, it wasn't a surprise to see CLOY on this list. The supporting characters also make the drama a whole lot more interesting and worth rewatching.

3. Reply 1988

Starring: Park Bo Gum, Lee Hyeri, Ryu Jun Yeol, Go Kyung Pyo

If you're fond of plots that heavily revolve around family, friendship, and feels in general, this drama is a must-watch. It also gives you a glimpse of life in Seoul for regular people.

4. Goblin

6. Descendants of the Sun

7. Hotel Del Luna

Starring: IU, Yeo Jin Goo, Lee Do Hyun

IU plays a thousand-year-old extravagant and short-tempered hotelier, which is refreshing to see for someone Korean fans have deemed as the Nation's Little Sister.

The drama also features the life stories of the other characters for a more interesting chain of events.

Love, mermaids, reincarnations, and Lee Min Ho—all valid reasons for rewatching this K-drama. If you're not a fan of full-on fantasy stories, this drama, which mixes fantasy elements into modern-day life, might be right up your alley.
