K-dramas are a darling nowadays. This is because they offer a wide range of genres. We love them for setting our standards sky-high and giving us the second lead syndrome. But K-dramas are loved the most for their relatability.
The way we can relate with almost every character at some point gets us in. Now, many of us are not a fan of heart-fluttering romances. K-dramas are still the answer. So many K-dramas pack mystery, emotions, and humor all in one. When you cannot decide which genre to pick up, just remember these five K-dramas. They are wholesome and will tick all your boxes of expectations.
