1. squid Game

I binged on this series non-stop. After four weeks of broadcast, it surpassed Bridgerton for the title of most watched Netflix series, becoming the most-viewed program in 94 countries.
This drama is all about survival. 456 people, who are stuck in a financial crisis participate in a competition to win nearly forty billion dollars by playing games designed for children.
Even though the ordeal seemed easy, the players find out soon that losing a game means the death penalty.
The series is one hell of a thriller and will keep you on your toes. The drama goes beyond just the games. Squid Game portrays different families with financial crises and how they cope with them. It also shows the power of teamwork, as well as the crude human nature to survive. Even if it means betraying people.
I am not gonna say much about this series. Because the series will speak for itself. JUST GO WATCH THIS.
This is just the top 5 K-dramas from my watchlist. I am sure your watchlist maybe different from mine. So don’t for get to comment what are your top 5 and what are the gems that I have missed out on.
