Netflix: 5 Hidden K-Dramas You Shouldn't Miss on the Platform

hidden k-dramas

In the realm of Netflix's extensive catalog, which constantly introduces new content, there are still undiscovered Korean gems that deserve attention.

It's a sentiment we often express, and it holds true: the sheer multitude of series options can sometimes leave us overwhelmed, leading us back to the same 3 or 4 beloved titles we already know.

This situation is particularly common in the formula of "Netflix + K-dramas," as the platform's mysterious element occasionally falls short of fully showcasing all the dramas it adds. That's why we took the time to meticulously review the catalog, handpicking five outstanding series that you might have overlooked.


Be Melodramatic

I almost have no words to tell you how much I enjoyed this series, which, contrary to what the title suggests, is a perfect dramedy. With utterly charming characters and a story that might feel repetitive but - on the contrary - feels super fresh, it's one of those series where you invest emotionally, and they never disappoint.

  • Official synopsis: "Three best friends in their 30s take different paths in their careers and love lives. Despite life's difficulties, the three friends can always return home at the end of the day and support each other."
  • It has only one season with a total of 16 episodes.

Doom At Your Service

In 2021, this K-drama became part of my DNA and was one of the series we discussed, commented on, and debated the most with my fellow TV series enthusiasts. With a story that mixes romance with fantasy - very much in the mood of "See You At My 19th Life" - Park Bo Young and Seo In-guk create a lead couple that is worth every minute.

  • Official synopsis: "A woman who lost her parents at an early age is diagnosed with a brain tumor and given less than 100 days to live. While waiting for death, she prays for the destruction of the world, and the arrival of an enigmatic man might fulfill her wish."
  • It has only one season with a total of 16 episodes.

Move to Heaven

Long before Woo, an extraordinary lawyer, Netflix released this series that breaks and heals your heart... in the same scene. Presenting a story that is undoubtedly not new, the way it is narrated and how it allows its characters to grow makes it a beautiful choice for those days when you need to connect with emotions from another perspective.

  • Official synopsis: "A young man with Asperger's syndrome and his uncle perform traumatic clear-outs, organize the possessions of the deceased, and discover stories."
  • It has only one season with a total of 16 episodes.

My ID Is Gangnam Beauty

My ID Is Gangnam Beauty is a classic among those who love K-dramas, I never tire of recommending it because something very strange happened to me when I watched it for the first time: It didn't hook me! It was a few years later that I gave it a second chance, and I LOVED IT.

  • Official synopsis: "Han Se-gye is an actress considered 'troublesome,' but no one really knows anything about her. Her biggest secret? She suffers from an unusual phenomenon, and at a certain point every month, she must live in someone else's body against her will. Seo Do-jae, a smart young executive at an airline company who seems perfect on the surface but actually suffers from prosopagnosia. Crossing paths by chance, they slowly realize how their lives are going to change forever."
  • It has only one season with a total of 16 episodes.

You Are My Spring

If I tell you that I became so obsessed with this series that I started watching absolutely every production in which Kim Dong-wook worked, would you believe me? With a story so strange that many times you will have to deal with uncertainty, this psychological thriller that dares to throw a love triangle in the middle works so, so well that it's a very strange marvel. If you watched "When the Camellia Blooms," then you know what I'm talking about.

  • Official synopsis: "The hotel concierge and a psychiatrist with a traumatic childhood form a sincere bond as they get involved in a puzzling murder case."
  • It has only one season with a total of 16 episodes.
