5 Great South Korean TV Shows

I love South Korean TV shows for their zaniness and fun. Here are some of my favorites.

  1. ED_Post_KoreanTVBoys Over Flowers - Based on a Japanese anime and manga series, this was my first foray into the incredibly addictive genre of Korean Dramas, and still my favorite.
  2. Bread, Love and Dreams - Uplifting and heart wrenching to watch the main character, Kim Takgu, succeed in overcoming the manipulations, plotting, and machinations of his father’s wife.
  3. Shut Up and Let’s Go - Episode 2 completely surprised me with an unexpected plot twist. Watch it to find out why. The music is compelling and catchy—think Korean version of the Foo Fighters. I was singing “Wake Up” for weeks after finishing the series.
  4. Pasta - My teen son was inspired to cook good pasta after watching this series with me. We would also randomly shout out the shows tagline, “Yeah, Chef!” Everyone loves a good inside joke.
  5. Manny - I loved the vignette after each episode when the Manny gives parenting tips.

    wow! I’m, so impressed! I recently left an area with a strong South Korean population, but didn’t expect to find an interest in Spokane! I’ll have to check out some of those! Thanks for the referral.
