Discover why these dramas are a must-watch as they weave tales of love, growth, and resilience, making them essential additions to your binge-watching list this year.

One of our particular favs is Doctor Slump, starring Park Shin-hye and Park Hyung-sik. Originally premiering in January 2024 on Netflix, the show follows two doctors in the depths of their professional burnouts — when they unexpectedly reconnect. As they navigate this reunion, old rivalries may resurface, yet it also holds the potential to kindle a new flame of romance between them.

ICYMI, Park Shin-hye is a K-drama darling, starring in nearly every popular drama in the 2010s — from The Heirs, The Doctors, Pinocchio, You’re Beautiful and so much more.

Her role in Doctor Slump marked the first K-drama that the Korean actress has starred in in three years, since getting married and giving birth to a child. During an online press conference in January 2024, Park Shine-hye revealed why she decided to return to acting with Doctor Slump.

“I empathized with my character Ha-neul very much because I have a lot of friends who have been burnt out or depressed,” she explained. “When Ha-neul becomes depressed, she thinks that there needs to be this grand solution to her depression and that she can only overcome her burnt-out-ness through that. But I think that happiness isn’t far away, and it doesn’t rely on some big answer. I wanted to tell viewers this through playing Ha-neul.”

Park Hyung-sik is in nearly every fan-favorite Korean dramas there, which has coined his nickname as the “King of K-Dramas.” He’s starred in The Heirs, The High Society, Soundtrack #1 and of course, Strong Girl Bong Soon — which is probably what he’s best known for.
