10 Best Korean Dramas on Netflix Canada

10 Best Korean Dramas on Netflix Canada

Just finished binge-watching Squid Game and looking for even more Korean dramas on Netflix Canada?

It was actually Crash Landing on You that got me into Korean dramas, and I think South Korea makes some of the best and most innovate TV series out there.

The more k-dramas I watch, the more I want to visit South Korea – it looks so beautiful, and the food all looks amazing!

Here are some of the best Korean dramas to binge-watch on Netflix Canada, if you’re looking for some new shows to watch.

Be sure to also follow me on Instagram and TikTok – I share a lot more content on those platforms that don’t make it to the blog!

Best Korean dramas on Netflix Canada


Itaewon Class

Itaewon Class is probably my most favourite Korean drama of all-time.

Ex-con Park Sae-Ro-Yi fights to make his dreams a reality with the help of his friends.

This series is intense, exciting, emotional, and inspiring – it’s definitely worth the hype.

The soundtrack is also really good – I have it downloaded on Spotify 😉

1 season available on Netflix


Squid Game

I think Squid Game is one of the best TV series to come out of 2021, and it’s probably my second favourite Korean drama series of all-time.

It’s about a group of people who compete in games against each other for a chance to win a large grand prize.

While it’s not scary, it’s got some pretty gory scenes!

1 season available on Netflix


Extracurricular

A gifted high school student turns to a life of crime to help pay for college.

If you liked the Netflix series Baby (I liked it until I found out it was based on true events), you’ll definitely like Extracurricular (which is purely fictional).

The actor who plays the main character, Dong-Hee Kim, also stars in Itaewon Class.

1 season available on Netflix


Crash Landing on You

Crash Landing on You quickly became one of the most successful Korean dramas of all-time after it was released.

The series is about a South Korean heiress and CEO who accidentally paraglides her way into North Korea.

It’s a love story that has its teary and heartfelt moments.

The production team was advised by actual North Korean defectors for the show, so it’s the closest portrayal to actual life in North Korea out there in the media.

Which is possibly part of why it’s become so popular!

1 season available on Netflix


Nevertheless

A cynical art student who doesn’t believe in love starts a relationship with a flirtatious classmate who doesn’t believe in relationships.

Nevertheless is a beautiful romance Korean drama, and it stars Han So Hee and Song Kang!

1 season available on Netflix


Kingdom

There are endless zombie films and TV series out there, but if we’re being honest, most of them are bleh.

Kingdom is a South Korean TV series set in ancient Korea, and it’ll have you clutching your blanket over your face.

In Kingdom, a mysterious plague makes its way through the kingdom while the crown prince tries to save his people.

Oh, and the zombies run fast, which is my worst nightmare when it comes to zombie shows.

It was actually the first South Korean Netflix Original series!

2 seasons available on Netflix, still ongoing


Strangers from Hell

A young man moves into a cheap apartment with strange and suspicious residents, and everything starts to go downhill.

Strangers from Hell is a wild and anxiety-ridden ride, and it’s definitely not for people who easily get frightened by horror.

1 season available on Netflix


My Name

After her father is murdered, a young girl puts her trust in a crime boss to get revenge against her father’s killer.

My Name is action-packed and quite bloody, and it kinda reminds me of The Punisher, also a Netflix Original series.

Han So Hee from Nevertheless stars as the lead, and it’s so interesting seeing her in a completely different role (and killing it)!

1 season available on Netflix


Save Me

Save Me is a dark k-drama series that will make you absolutely terrified of cults.

After a tragedy, a family gets heavily influenced by a cult disguised as a church, and daughter Sang-Mi does everything she can to try to escape.

It’s a very creepy and uneasy series, but it’s definitely binge-worthy.

1 season available on Netflix


Sweet Home

As humans turn into monsters, a troubled teen and his neighbours fight them off and try to survive.

With all the zombie movies out there, Sweet Home is an interesting and different take!

Zombies do seem more realistic (lol) than turning into monsters that represent your desires, but it’s still a good watch.

Song Kang from Nevertheless stars as the lead character!

1 season available on Netflix
