4. “Hotel Del Luna”

Hotel Del Luna revolves around a woman Jang Man Wol who is immortal and has supernatural powers. She has sinned in her past life and has killed a lot of people. She runs a hotel that serves ghosts. The humans who are dissatisfied with their lives and die an unfair death don’t go to eternal life because they feel that they have had an unfair life. Jang Man Wol owns a hotel and she provides all the amenities and luxuries to the dead ghosts who haven’t been able to live a good life. She hires a boy called Ko Chan Sung as the hotel manager as his father is indebted to Jang Man Wol.

5. “Kill It”

Talented veterinarian by day and cold-blooded assassin by night, Kim Soo Hyun’s (Jang Ki Yong) duality shields him from open suspicion, allowing him to refine his lethal craft while maintaining the guise of a kind-hearted animal lover. This cover is cracked when a dogged detective named Do Hyun Jin (Nana) ends up on his trail due to a case she is working on. When they realize their pasts are intertwined in complicated ways, the two set out to untangle the mystery behind their fate.

What makes “Kill It” suspenseful, and also deeply sad, is the mystery of the characters’ fate. The plot turns on the notion of childhood being a time of and for innocence and instead shapes it into a window for training before the children, numbered and commoditized, are made ready for more.

6. “Lovely Horribly”

Born at the same time, Philip’s (Park Shi Hoo) and Eul Soon’s (Song Ji Hyo) fortunes were swapped during their childhood years, and since then, Philip has been living a charmed life in the public eye with Lady Luck shining on him at every turn. In sharp contrast, Eul Soon, whose good luck at birth was swapped with Philip’s, suffers from misfortune that was originally meant for the top star. In a curious spin, it also turns out that the balance of luck is a zero-sum game, with one of them being dealt with bad luck whenever the other is happy. When they end up working together on a drama project, things go haywire and the two have to figure out how to strike a balance between their shared fortunes.

The fates of the main characters, in direct juxtaposition in the past, reflect inner greed and the sacrifices that come at the expense of that greed. This tension is further dialed up by the appearance and roles of two spirits that seem to be connected to Philip — who are they and what are they after?

7. “Kingdom”

The Netflix Original returned with Season 2 this year, and already, the horror thriller drama has got us at the edge of our seats itching for more.

Set during the Joseon period, Crown Prince Lee Chang (Joo Ji Hoon) investigates a mysterious plague that has afflicted his ill father, the King of Joseon, and spread like wildfire amongst the populace, turning those who were bitten into the living dead. Part and parcel of a political conspiracy, the Prince has to keep his wits about him to stay alive while preventing the nation from falling into the nefarious grips of the powerful Haewon Cho clan.

Unlike other zombie dramas and films, “Kingdom” doesn’t let the undead become the centerpiece of the plot. Instead, they are used as a machination to deliver the suspense that unfolds with the political power play. As the series transitions from Season 1 to Season 2, the mystery only gets more intriguing, so hang on tight for Season 3!
