10+ Supernatural K-Dramas You Need To Binge Watch

When it comes to visual entertainment, we all know that K-dramas are the best — and who would dare to disagree on that? Beautiful romances, adorable heart-pounding moments, laugh-out-loud comedy, and an industry full of amazingly talented actors…add in the supernatural element, and you have a K-drama worth selling your soul for. Fans of the paranormal, superhuman, and magical, here are the dramas you should be watching!

korean drama ghost girl

The obvious pick is “ Goblin .” It’s a new show that recently finished airing, and it received top ratings and applause from many viewers. If you like a beautifully poetic story and amazing visual effects, this K-drama is for you. It also features a goblin, a grim reaper, a chaebol, a girl who sees ghosts, a reincarnated queen, and two gods, so if you decide to watch it, you’ll be in for a fantastical show that will make you fall hard for the characters and cry-laugh at the many feel-good moments. The bromance alone makes the show a 10 out of 10. Bonus: It stars the handsome Gong Yoo , who just recently scored another big hit in the amazing zombie thriller “Train to Busan.”

Watch

The Legend of the Blue Sea

korean drama ghost girl

For all you mermaid lovers: we finally have a K-drama for that! “ The Legend of the Blue Sea ” is another K-drama high up on the chart, with a tone slightly similar to “Goblin” in its fairytale elements, except this show focuses mainly on a love that endures throughout multiple timelines and even between land and sea. If you’re a sucker for romance, then this drama is for you, as there are many adorable moments between the two main characters, played by Lee Min Ho and Jun Ji Hyun . For fans of comedy, the first few episodes also have a lot of slapstick humor, though it tones down to focus on the plot later.

Watch

In “ W ,” a handsome and intelligent webtoon character falls in love with the writer’s daughter. Hijinks ensue as the couple tries to outrun a webtoon villain who exists to destroy our hero and bridge the gap between both worlds. Warning: there are some sad and/or stressful moments.

Master’s Sun

korean drama ghost girl

Horror rom-com is a unique type of genre that, unfortunately, has not shown up in too many dramas yet. However, I recommend trying it out, as these shows mix fright with laughter in a way that’s fun and perfect for a Halloween night, a cool summer thriller…or any night of the year, really. As a scaredy-cat myself, the elements of horror aren’t so strong that you won’t be able to sleep at night — just grab a friend before you watch.

The top drama in this category is “ Master’s Sun ,” by the Hong Sisters. The slapstick humor is strong in this one, but it’s a hilarious show about a girl driven crazy by her fears of the ghosts she sees and the heartwarming chaebol who slowly evolves into someone worthy of protecting her. Throughout the show, the characters come together to help the ghosts that appear to them with paranormal cases, all the while attempting to unravel a very strange mystery.

korean drama ghost girl

Bring It On, Ghost

korean drama ghost girl

“ Bring It On, Ghost ” is kind of a teenage version of “Master’s Sun”: it has a sweet summer romance played out by Kim So Hyun and Taecyeon (Hint: Listen to My Heartbeat) and a ghost crime-fighting unit that’s often better at comedy. However, the show carries itself strong up until the last episode, which leaves viewers with a slightly unsatisfying and weak ending.

Oh My Ghostess

korean drama ghost girl

“ Oh My Ghostess ” bears slight similarities to the above K-dramas; it’s more centered around one ghost — specifically, a very handsy ghost ( Kim Seul Gi ) that feels slighted over the fact she’s a virgin ghost. Add in a shy girl ( Park Bo Young ) who hopes for the attention of a handsome chef ( Jo Jung Suk ) and body possession, and you end up with a zany supernatural drama that finds its niche in slightly adult humor and a few well-meaning lessons of life. As usual, this rom-com also has an element of mystery to it.

Arang and the Magistrate

korean drama ghost girl

“ Arang and the Magistrate ” is an older K-drama that also centers around a ghost…in the Joseon era. Arang ( Shin Min Ah ), our main character, is a sweet, tough spirit who manages to run into our hero, a handsome magistrate ( Lee Joon Gi ) who can see the dead. Throughout the show, our magistrate must use his detective skills to defeat some seriously creepy, supernatural killers. “Arang and the Magistrate” also opens an interesting window into classic Korean ghost beliefs, with the addition of an amusing portrayal of the gods of heaven and hell.

korean drama ghost girl

If you run out of dramas to watch, a wonderful horror rom-com movie is “ Spellbound ,” in which a woman haunted by a ghost meets a cowardly magician willing to endure his fear of the supernatural in order to protect her.

Gu Family Book

korean drama ghost girl

“ Gu Family Book ” is an older drama starring a half-human, half-gumiho (a Korean creature of folklore) born out of about two entire episodes of tragedy, so if you have difficulty handling rough scenes, I’d advise against this show. However, there’s something so good about the main character, played by Lee Seung Gi , that makes you fall in love with him immediately. It’s the fantasy elements of this show that make it so interesting (plus the romance). However, the storyline does waver in places and the ending is semi-sad, so if you’re prone to weeping, you might want to try one of the other K-dramas on this list.

My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho

“ My Girlfriend Is a Gumiho ” is a slapstick comedy rom-com that deals with similar elements of Korean lore, also starring Lee Seung Gi, so if you appreciate the Hong Sisters’ humor, then K-drama fans may find this a fun watch.

My Love From the Star

“ My Love From the Star ” is another older, but top-ratings drama starring photogenic actors Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun. If you can imagine the American Superman as a handsome Korean drama man, then you understand why “My Love From the Star” is a must-watch. It’s a sweet, romantic show about a hallyu star that falls in love with an alien. It involves cool superpowers, many funny moments, and a psychopathic murderer worthy of going up against our beloved alien.

If vampires are your thing, then never fear; the K-drama world has produced a number of shows to satisfy your tastes:

“ Blood ” is an interesting vampire show; however, fans found themselves unsatisfied with the openly ended and depressing finale. Reasons to watch: it’s a fusion of a vampire show and a medical drama, and main actors Ahn Jae Hyun and Ku Hye Sun married in real life last May!

Orange Marmalade

korean drama ghost girl

“ Orange Marmalade ” is a cute, high school romance adapted from a webtoon.

Scholar Who Walks the Night

“ Scholar Who Walks the Night ” takes vampires back to the Joseon era, complete with a cross-dressing girl who attempts to hide herself in the world of male scholars.

Vampire Prosecutor

“ Vampire Prosecutor “: For those who like less romance and more crime-fighting every once in a while, this show is a compelling and hugely popular drama centered around a vampire himself. There are two seasons, plus a short spinoff show.

Other Shows!

Other supernatural shows to watch are:

“ I Hear Your Voice “: Following a noona romance between a lawyer and a boy who can read her mind, This drama is a must-watch if you’re a fan of Lee Jong Suk, who carries the show with his adorable cuteness.

“ Queen In Hyun’s Man “: A sweet romance involving time travel.

“Touching You”: A short drama made up of web-isodes, “Touching You” is an interesting show to watch if you don’t have a lot of time. It stars Taecyeon, whose character can see people’s fates when he touches them. My only complaint is the female lead, who seems a bit weak and flat, but for about 15 minutes per episode, it’s worth a watch.

32. Who Are You?

Who Are You  - Top 33 Supernatural Korean Dramas You Need to See - kdramaplanet

Here’s a supernatural Korean drama about ghosts. The story follows two detectives – a man and a woman, who try to help the spirits hidden in different items to find peace. After coming out of coma, the woman is given an opportunity to see ghosts. As they work together, they come closer. However, the spirit of the woman’s dead boyfriend appears, thus creating a love triangle between humans and ghosts. Before losing his life in an accident, he was a part of an elite team of the police force.

“Who Are You” doesn’t fall under the action or crime thriller category. So if you are looking for this kind of supernatural series, look somewhere else. It’s all about a love triangle, recalling old memories, and small cases. Although you will see some fights, it is not the core of the story.

Theme: ghosts Genres: horror, mystery, thriller, romance Starring: So Yi Hyun, Ok Taec Yeon, Kim Jae Wook

31. Master’s Sun

The Master's Sun - Best Supernatural Korean Dramas

This psychological romance K-drama revolves around the story of a downhearted woman who is constantly seeing ghosts and her boss, a cold and snobbish man. One day, they reveal that the woman stops seeing ghosts whenever they are touching each other. This discovery moves the story forward. To stay around her boss, the woman must help him get back a fortune taken away from him.

If you are looking not just for a fantasy Korean series, but for a perfect blend of genres, you’ve stumbled upon the right one! “Master’s Sun” is a mystery, comedy, romance, horror, and psychological drama at once!

Vampire Flower -  The List of Sci-Fi Kdramas You Can't Miss

Here’s a great drama for those of you who are looking for a short drama (this one is only 6 episodes long) and like the stories about vampires. There’s no chance you will get bored watching it since the drama of such length and such genre won’t give a chance you to do it. Similar to “Twilight”, a vampire has a crush on a human. However, that’s probably the only likeness between these two series.

“Vampire Flower” tells the story of love between two teenagers – a centuries-old vampire and a girl with an exceptional type of blood. Together, they embark on a journey to find a long-lost flower hidden on the land of vampires.

Also, he finds himself in a conflict with a cruel and imperious chief. “Blood” is quite an unpredictable series that blends many genres at once: thriller, suspense, action, romance, science fiction, fantasy, drama, as well as a medical theme. Also, this story is filled with life philosophies and morals: shortness of life, the worthlessness of money and power, compassion for those who are sick, as well as many other issues.

Theme: vampires Genres: action, drama, romance, medical Starring: Ahn Jae Hyun, Gu Hye Seon, Ji Jin Hee

28. Orange Marmalade

Orange Marmalade  - 32 Supernatural Korean Dramas You Need to See - kdramaplanet

Here’s one of the supernatural Korean dramas about vampires again. “Orange Marmalade” tells us about a fictional world where vampires and humans coexist. Over time, the socially withdrawn creatures have evolved and now they don’t depend on human blood. Yet, they are highly unwelcomed by society. Hence, the majority of them hides their true identity and introduce themselves as “normal” people. Doing otherwise, they become marginalized.

This Korean series follows the story of one of such outcasted members of society. It revolves around a vampire teenage girl who used to keep quiet about her true nature. Thrown out from neighborhoods numerous times, she decides to move to a new city and live a quiet life. However, it becomes an impossible task for her once she falls in love with a popular guy at her college.

Don’t miss this drama if you want to see every possible cliché! Here you have love triangles and squares, school romance, vampires falling in love with humans, amnesia, and even Joseon era! And yet, this drama has an unusual take on all these things. You will like the series, including the compilation of all these cliches, thanks to its perfect storytelling.

With not too much time on their hands and complicated matters, they have to do everything they need to. However, are they given the opportunity to live for a little longer only to help their loved ones? Or there are more reasons behind it?

This TV show is another amazing fusion of genres. It also gives us many lessons on how to look at our lives: life is not only about working and ignoring, hurting the feelings of people because of that.

Get Ready for a Halloween Night with These Series

Exciting korean ghost series on netflix, master’s sun.

Begin with the lighter Korean horror drama series “Master’s Sun.” Starring So Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin, it is for you who are particularly wary of supernatural entities. This series was crafted by the renowned Hong Sisters . It perfectly melds romance and horror, narrating the tale of Tae Gong Shil (Gong Hyo Jin), a woman who sees ghosts. Her life takes a turn when she encounters Joo Joong Won (So Ji Sub), realizing her ghostly visions vanish upon physical contact with him. What unfolds is a blend of chilling encounters and a developing storyline that makes “Master’s Sun” a standout choice for easing into horror series, available on both Netflix and Amazon Prime .

A Korean Odyssey

After “The Master’s Sun,” advance to “A Korean Odyssey,” which ramps the eerie ambiance, this series reimagines the classic “Journey to the West.” The series focuses on Jin Sun Mi (Oh Yeon Seo), a descendant of Monk Samjang and a magnet for supernatural beings. Tricked in her youth by Monkey King Son Oh Gong (Lee Seung Gi) and haunted by ghosts seeking her blood, Sun Mi’s story intertwines horror with captivating personal journeys. “A Korean Odyssey” masterfully combines chilling moments with deep storytelling, available for streaming on Netflix .

If you feel more confident, the Korean horror drama series “The Cursed” is your next step. This series revolves around a reporter, Im Jin Hee (Uhm Ji Won), who teams up with a young shaman, Baek Soo Jin (Jung Ji So). They aim to tackle an evil spirit disguised as a CEO. “The Cursed” focuses less on ghostly appearances and more on the chilling impact of curses. Offering a story rich in supernatural battles, it’s available on Netflix .

“Hellbound” introduces a variation of supernatural themes, bringing a unique blend of suspense and drama. It depicts a world plunged into darkness by mysterious creatures, with the story centered around a religious group, The New Truth . Dubbed as the best horror series at the 2021 Golden Tomato Awards, this series is compelling for those looking to delve deeper into horror themes.

Sell Your Haunted House

Exploring the concept of profiting from ghostly abilities, “Sell Your Haunted House” follows Hong Ji Ah ( Jang Nara ). Like Jin Sun Mi in “A Korean Odyssey,” Hong Ji Ah uses her spectral sight for business. However, with ghosts appearing consistently throughout its 16 episodes, this drama is for those ready for a more intense experience. This series is also available on Netflix and Amazon Prime .

“Missing: The Other Side” and “Missing: The Other Side 2”

“Missing: The Other Side” is a unique concoction of mystery and the supernatural. Set in a mysterious village where the souls of the missing, presumed dead, reside, this series introduces a gripping plot that intertwines the living and the dead. The protagonist, Kim Wook (Go Soo), is a con artist with a heart of gold who stumbles upon this hidden village. He teams up with various characters, including a righteous village headman Jang Pan Seok (Heo Joon Ho), and a spirited detective, Shin Joon Ho (Ha Joon).

As they unravel the stories behind the missing individuals, they also uncover a web of earthly crimes connected to the disappearances. The series stands out for its ability to maintain suspense and empathy. Undoubtedly, it draws viewers into a world where the line between life and death blurs. Available for streaming on Netflix , “Missing: The Other Side” captures the heart with its emotional depth and clever plot twists.

Building on the foundation laid by its predecessor, “Missing: The Other Side 2” takes the adventure further. This sequel delves deeper into the mysteries of the ghostly village. Nevertheless, it offers more intricate plotlines and character development. Returning with Go Soo and Heo Joon Ho, the series introduces new characters, adding fresh dynamics to the story.

The sequel enhances the themes of redemption and justice. Additionally, the protagonists face more complex challenges. The series beautifully balances elements of thrill and poignant human stories as they uncover the truths behind the lost souls and their untimely departures. These series are must-watches for fans of Korean dramas looking for a mix of ghostly intrigue and heart-warming tales.

Exciting Korean Ghost Series on Amazon Prime

For a change of platform, “Island,” available on Amazon Prime , offers an intriguing narrative filled with more intense ghostly encounters. Starring Cha Eun Woo and Kim Nam Gil, this series suits viewers who have gradually adapted to horror elements.

The Ghost Detective

Lastly, “The Ghost Detective,” not on Netflix but available on Amazon Prime , combines horror with crime and mystery. Featuring Lee Ji Ah and Park Eun Bin, the series draws viewers into its intricate mysteries and thrilling cases, making it a must-watch for fans of the genre.

Paranormal Romance Watchlist: 12 Korean Dramas To Binge – From Grim Reapers, Ghosts, to Vampires and Even Mermaids

Ever since I devoured my first paranormal romance novel, I have been devoted to this misunderstood genre whether that be through television, film, or literature.

Blood Korean Drama Paranormal Romance Watchlist

From the moment Casper turned into Devon Sawa (if you’re my age, you should totally get this), Buffy realized Angel was really a vampire, or Liz was saved by an alien named Max, I have been swept up by those swoon-worthy love stories steeped in the strange and supernatural.

Vampires, witches, aliens, ghosts, etc. The otherness of these romances creates wonderful tension and obstacles without all that unnecessary angst. A vampire who longs to be with his human love is another way to tell a star-crossed tale while a ghost who falls in love with a human creates a story with a huge hurdle to overcome.

The themes available to paranormal romances intrigue me because the barriers are so huge: immortality versus mortality, redemption, the meaning of humanity, and so much more.

RELATED |  Siren – The Perfect Romantic Mermaid Thriller for Fans of ‘The Vampire Diaries’

So as a devoted fan of paranormal romance and everything supernatural, I was thrilled to enter the world of K-Dramas where there seems an endless sea of fabulous and over the top romantic paranormal romances just ready to be binged.

Here are twelve of the best I’ve seen thus far! These are, of course, just the tip of the iceberg so be sure to share your own recommendations down below.

NOTE: Since this article first aired, Dramafever has since shut down. So, I’ve updated where to watch these dramas.

Paranormal Romance Watchlist: 12 Korean Dramas To Binge

(In No Particular Order)

#1: Master’s Sun

The Master’s Sun Review

The Show: Master’s Sun is seriously so good and so romantic that I can’t imagine anyone not swooning by the series end. Years after an accident, Tae Gong Shil sees ghosts day and night. There doesn’t seem to be much hope in sight UNTIL she meets Joo Joong Won, a greedy CEO. Whenever she touches him, the ghosts disappear.

So, what is a girl to do but follow the handsome Joo Joong Won around? Humor, love, and mysteries all take shape in this amazing Gothic Romance. Watch it immediately but be prepared to totally fall hard for So-ji sub as the main lead!

Where To Watch: Buy on DVD or Stream on Viki.

#2: Scholar Who Walks the Night

Scholar Who Walks the Night

The Show: Scarlet Heart Ryeo fans take note as our bad boy romantic lead also stars in this historical vampire romance. In order to support her family,  Jo Yang Sun dresses as a man selling rare books.

One day, she crosses paths with a mysterious scholar who also just happens to be a vampire. But with the evil vampire Gwi in town, how will these two ever find a happy ending? With several epic romantic moments, I can’t imagine why paranormal romance aficionados wouldn’t stream this one asap…

Where To Watch: Buy on DVD or Stream on Viki or Tubi.

#3: My Love From Another Star

My Love From Another Star Review

The Show: For those of us who love our paranormal romance with just a dash of alien, look no further than My Love From Another Star. 

Epic, is the only way to describe this addictive romance about a beautiful movie star and the immortal alien she falls in love with.

Where To Watch:  Buy on DVD or Stream on Viki.

#4: Blade Man (AKA Iron Man)

The Show: Blade Man is Edward Scissorhands meets Snow White and the Seven Dwarves meets Being Human . Seriously. The series follows Hong-Bin, a CEO with an anger problem. And, whenever he gets angry, the blades come out all over his body (hence the Being Human comparison).

Of course, this being a romance, he crosses paths with Se-Dong, a kind woman with problems of her own. And like all Beauty and the Beast tales, her presence calms him. While sometimes the show does drag a little with an extremely annoying ex that pops into the picture, overall, Blade Man is well worth most of your time.

Where To Watch:  Buy on DVD or Stream on On Demand Korea .

Black Korean Drama

The Show: Black is my recent addiction. In Black , a cold and ruthless grim reaper in a detective’s body falls for a human woman who can see the shadows of death whenever someone is about to die. Not to mention, she can also see how they die. Perhaps, with Black’s help, she can stop the deaths from actually happening. Too bad he wants to do the exact opposite. Or does he? Together, the two begin to unravel terrible conspiracies connected to sexual assault and corruption.

The plot weaves together marvelously and the romance unfolds slowly but beautifully. The last ten minutes are a little confusing and weak, but aside from that, Black comes close to perfection. Plus, extra points for the leading man. He can do action and romance up there with Alex O’Loughlin in Moonlight . And coming from me ( Moonlight is my personal favorite show of all time), that’s quite the comparison…

Where To Watch: Buy on DVD or Stream on Netflix.

#6: Arang and the Magistrate

korean drama ghost girl

The Show: Arang is a historical horror romance about a murdered ghost who convinces Lee Joon-Gi ( Scarlet Heart Ryeo fans rejoice once again) to get justice and find the murderer. She can’t move on until she finds out how she died. It’s a good thing she finally found someone who can see ghosts. But what happens when they fall in love?

Where To Watch:  Buy on DVD or Stream on Viki or Tubi.

#7: Goblin: The Lonely and Great God

Goblin -Korean Paranormal Romance

The Show: If you haven’t seen Goblin , rectify this immediately. Aside from an amazing story, the production quality has to be the best I’ve seen in a Korean Drama. Then there is the writing. Goblin is side-splittingly funny (particularly between the Grim Reaper and the Goblin – both stuck living together), romantic, and epic.

The story itself follows an immortal Goblin who can’t die until he finds his bride. But what happens when he finally finds her, falls in love, and no longer wants to die? There’s also a lovely side romance between the Grim Reaper and Sunny, a restaurant owner that may have a connection to his past.

Where To Watch:  Buy on DVD.

#8: Legend of the Blue Sea

The Legend of the Blue Sea

The Show: Sometimes, paranormal romances don’t have to be steeped in gothic horror. Instead, they can be a sweeping romance about a mermaid who falls in love with a human. Extra points for this also being part period drama with two stories unfolding simultaneously. One in the past and one in the present.

As our mermaid falls in love with a conman, can the two overcome the tragic fate of their past lives and finally get their happy ending? Legend of the Blue Sea entertains from start to finish and is by far the best and most romantic mermaid romance I’ve seen onscreen.

Where To Watch:  Buy on DVD or Stream on Viki.

#9: Oh My Ghostess (aka Oh My Ghost)

The Show: Na Bong-sun is extremely shy, unnoticed as an assistant chef, and also just so happens to see ghosts. She has a crush on her handsome chef boss (who is also a jerk) but only gets noticed when she gets possessed by an outgoing ghost. This one is fun, but I wish it spent more time on Na Bong-Sun and less time on our ghost.

Where To Watch:  Buy on DVD or Stream on Netflix or Viki.

The Show: Blood is a vampire romance set in a hospital. The series starts slow, but stay with it! In Blood , Yoo Ri Ta, a young and prideful doctor, crosses paths with Park Ji Sang, a doctor who also happens to be a vampire. He uses his supernatural abilities to save lives, but his taste for blood is difficult to suppress. Enter in the evil (and super entertaining) Lee Jae-Wook and the battle between good and evil begins. This is a vampire series for those of us who love Moonlight and Forever Knight .

#11: Bride of the Water God (AKA Habaek)

Bride of the Water God - Korean Paranormal Romance

The Show: I’ll be honest. Bride of the Water God is probably my least favorite paranormal romance series on this list because it drags. However, I still got sucked into the show. The same might just happen to you. But if you’re a newbie to Korean Dramas, I would probably start with a stronger one with better writing and more interesting characters and return to this one later.

That being said, there’s still a lot to appreciate about Bride of the Water God , especially considering that water gods are not a common paranormal romance choice. Indeed, I would love to see another series that delves more into the interesting mythology.

In this story, a very arrogant and obnoxious god comes to earth. He needs to find a stone in order to claim his throne. But things don’t go as planned and he must turn to a woman whose family has been cursed to serve him for centuries. After a while of his really narcissistic tantrums, the two fall in love! But other gods show up to create all sorts of mischief in the meantime.

#12: A Korean Odyssey (aka Hwayugi)

Korean Drama Paranormal Romance Watchlist

The Show: A Korean Odyssey is a new Korean Drama that recently finished airing on Viki.  From the Hong Sisters ( The Master’s Sun ), the series has their signature style of romance and humor. Though it is super creepy. Indeed, it’s probably the creepiest show on the list so I am warning you. If you don’t like evil demon possessions, you might want to move on! But if you can get past the first six episodes, the fright factor tones down and transforms into this really cool dark fairy tale with an evil witch.

RELATED |  ROMANTIC MOMENT OF THE WEEK: GOBLIN – A BIRTHDAY WISH

Overall, despite the moments of nightmarish horror, the mythology of this demon falling in love with a human story is amazing. Enter a human child who can see demons, a demon who made a contract with her to always save her, and you have a recipe for success. The series is an incredible and romantic ride from start to finish. There’s even a dragon by the end of the show! I do think this one needs another season though as it sort of ends on a cliffhanger…

Where To Watch: Stream on   Viki and Netflix.

Hopefully, these 12 Korean Paranormal Romances will be your perfect entrance into the wonderful world of K-Drama. What paranormal romance will you binge next? Do you have any recommendations of your own?

The Chinese Drama “The General and I” is really worth watching – very romantic and the couple so devoted to each other, also great story and margial art action. Loved it so so oh so much- very recommended – to watch on Dramafever.

Autumn, DramaFever is no longer available. It really made me upset. They refunded my remaining subscription money. FYI

Yes, I was very upset when Dramafever closed down.

Vampire Prosecutor (the first season) was a really great supernatural drama, with a really interesting premise. It can get really dark though, and there wasn’t much romance (but some great romantic moments?). I couldn’t get into the second season though, it was too dark and scary!

Hwayugi (a korean odyssey) is literally life Even tho its creepy and has some scary demon posessions in it, it is so hilarious! After the a person dies someone still lights up the mood so you can’t even be sad!(-^〇^-)watch the dram and istg you will not regeet and you will get blessed 😉

But you will still cry tho

CRY OF HAPINESS

Hwayugi (a korean odyssey) is my favorite kdrama only surpassed by Goblin. By the way it also includes a formidable dragon. After watching I read) the 500 year old book Journey to the West as this is like a sequel to it and with that background the story became so much better. Lee Seung-gi portrayed a perfect Monkey King!

The hero who protects her is already very experienced at killing demons and protecting the weak despite his arrogance. However he is not a demon himself. He is the enlightened Buddhist Wugong, the Great Sage Equal to Heaven, and the Monkey King (born in the heart of a volcano) in human form. All of the characters and the special articles like the bracelet, the fan and the fighting rod come from the book.

Im watching the korean odyssy now,its so dope and i saw goblin last month it was s dope,o loved every bit of it…..

Bring it on Ghost was a good k-drama as well. The romance and scare factors matched up pretty good. I watch all of these on Viki on my firesticks

Also if interested, try Lovely Horribly. This was a great romance drama I just finished

Watch about time!!!! Its a fantasy romance drama played by lee sung kyung. I guarantee you will like it!!!!

Watch about time!!!! Its a fantasy romance drama played by lee sung kyung. I guarantee you will like it!!!

Oh yes I finished it and surprisingly it didn’t had a sad ending it was actually kindof a happy end so its ok and I also watched Korean Odyssey it was a very good show but i still haven’t watched the last 2 episodes bcz I know it has a sad ending and Im not planning of watching those episodes ever lol but still i dont regret watching the whole show it had some good characters and a great storyline pity it had to end like it did.

Goblin is literally my life and I’ve been watching My love from the star from a while but I’ve heard it has a sad ending so Idk if i should watch it anymore, tho I’ve been looking for shows like Goblin, it seems through so many reviews that Korean odyssey is the show to go but again people are saying it has a sad ending, im so confused if i should watch the later shows or not

I too have been struggling to find my footing after watching Goblin. Nothing else seems to work for me. The odd thing is that I would not put Goblin as my number 1. But has definitely raised the bar in overall quality and well basically everything making others seem less than.

I am also currently watching My Love From the Star. It didn’t grab me in the beginning, but I’m about 7 episodes in now and starting to feel it a bit. However, it hasn’t kept me up at night unable to stop moving on to the next episode like so many others have. Of course now you have me scared about the ending. I will still see it through. Did you end up finishing it?

Oh yes I finished it and surprisingly it didn’t had a sad ending it was actually kindof a happy end so its ok and I also watched Korean Odyssey it was a very good show but i still haven’t watched the last 2 episodes bcz I know it has a sad ending and Im not planning of watching those episodes ever lol but still i dont regret watching the whole show it had some good characters and a great storyline pity it had to end like it did

All of my faves are there so I am really lookking forward that this would help me in binge watching paranormal k-dramas lol. I want to add “Hotel De Luna” on the list though, it’s really cool.
