Baby, it’s cold outside.
While snowy weather and holiday cheer are plenty of fun, sometimes your inner Grinch just needs a break. Make some hot chocolate and break out the fuzzy socks. Here are five K-Dramas that you can enjoy from the warmth and comfort of your own couch!
01 Man x Man
Starring Park Hae-jin, Kim Min-jung and Park Sung-woong, “Man x Man” is the funny, exciting story of action, love, secrets and fame. Kim Seol-woo (Park Hae-jin) is a frosty international secret agent whose skills could put James Bond to shame. His missions are always a success, so protecting Yeo Woon-gwang (Park Sung-woong) a stuntman turned famous actor, shouldn’t be much of a challenge, right …?
Wrong. The two men quickly find themselves in a tangled mess with Cha Do-ha (Kim Min-jung) smack in the center. Do-ha, a huge Woon-gwang fan, works as the actor’s manager. Her spunky attitude and knack for trouble quickly put her at odds with the stoic Seol-woo. A delightful romance quickly blooms, but it isn’t long before Woon-gwang isn’t the only one in need of protection.
02 Strong Woman Do Bong-soon
Enjoy bodyguard dramas and strong female leads? Look no further than Do Bong-soon. This hilarious romance stars Park Bo-young and Park Hyung-sik as tangled duo Bong-soon — a gentle girl with incredible strength — and Min-hyuk — a wealthy young man in need of a strong bodyguard. Toss in good-looking police officer Guk-doo (Kim Si-joo) and you have a recipe for disaster, drama … and perhaps love.
03 Descendants of The Sun
Speaking of love and disasters, you’ll find ample amounts of both in the melodrama “Descendants of the Sun.” Song Joong-ki stars as Yoo Shi-jin, a military captain that falls in love with Kang Mo-yeon (Song Hye-kyo), a successful surgeon. Sometimes falling in love on screen can mean falling in love in real life. The couple was married in October 2017. If you want to know more about the past secrets and romance that unfold in the fictional country of Urk, check out the full series recaps here on MACG Magazine!
04 One More Time
If you prefer music and time travel, “One More Time” is a drama you’ll enjoy. Starring L (Kim Myung-soo of Infinite) and Yoon Soo-hee, this drama tells the story of a man who is given the chance to relive the same day over and over. Yoo-tan, the lead in a popular band, breaks up with his longtime girlfriend, Da-in. In between the break up and juggling the problems of his band’s future, time travel is the last thing Yoo-tan needs … or is it?
05 My Only Love Song
All right, one more time-travel drama. Last but not least on our list we have “My Only Love Song.” If you’re a fan of dramas like “Faith (The Great Doctor)” and “Rooftop Prince,” you’ll love the story of Soo-jung (Gong Seung-yeon) and On-dal (Lee Jong-hyun). See-Jung is a modern-day star with an attitude problem. While filming on the set of a historical drama, she finds herself mysteriously transported back in time to ancient Korea. Her brash ways quickly land her in trouble. Luckily for Soo-jung, she has the money hungry On-dal to lend a hand.
