A K-drama that I really enjoy watching is Hospital Playlist and my favorite doctor from the barkada would be Kim Jun Wan, played by actor Jung Kyung Ho. And because I love his character in the series, it made me binge-watch his other drama, Prison Playbook, until 2 a.m! Kyung Ho has starred in a lot of shows in the past years, and all of them are worth your time. Here's a list of his *best* works so far and where you can watch them.

Must-Watch K-Dramas Starring Jung Kyung Ho

1. Hospital Playlist (2020 - 2021)

Where you can watch it: Netflix

If you think medical dramas are all about surgeries in the operating room, think again: Hospital Playlist (Jo Jung SukYoo Yeon SeokJeon Mi Do, and Kim Dae Myung) goes beyond that and shows the life of doctors, patients, and the other people connected to them. They make mistakes, become successful, fall in love, fall out of love—it's as realistic as it can be! Here, Kyung Ho is cardiothoracic surgeon Kim Jun Wan who's quite outspoken (and may come off as a jerk) but is actually a sweetheart (aka an ideal boyfriend).

What happens when you sell your soul to the devil in exchange for fame and fortune? You get a handful of consequences. Kyung Ho transforms into a successful composer who had the best time of his life in When The Devil Calls Your Name—until his contract with the force of evil begins to expire. While I'm here, let me just say that Kyung Ho deserves all the major awards in South Korea because of his unmatched acting skills. I mean:

3. Prison Playbook (2017)

Where you can watch it: Netflix, Viu

From the same director who helmed Hospital Playlist (and Reply 1988!), Prison Playbook (Park Hae Soo, Krystal Jung, Sung Dong Il, Jung Hae In) chronicles the lives of those behind the bars. Kyung Ho portrays Lee Joon Ho, a prison guard who is the best friend of a baseball player accused of assault.

4. Missing 9 (2017)

Where you can watch it: Netflix

Soompi describes Missing 9 as "a story about nine individuals who get stranded on an island following an unexpected plane accident." This is probably one of the hardest K-dramas to shot for Kyung Ho, since the cast members revealed that it really felt like being stranded on an island. They had to mostly eat canned tuna and rice, wear the same clothes a lot of times, and film underwater.

5. Happy Once Again (2016)

Where you can watch it: Netflix, Viu

K-pop fans, you will love this rom-com drama: Happy Once Again tells the story of a first-gen girl group and how they change as they age and meet their one true love. Kyung Ho amazes us once again with a totally different role as a gossip magazine reporter.

6. Beating Again (2015)

Where you can watch it: Viki

Also called Falling For Innocence, this JTBC drama focuses on Kyung Ho as Kang Min Ho, who experienced the worst when his appa (father) died and his uncle took over his dad's company. One day, Kang Min Ho had a heart attack but he managed to survive after an operation.

7. Endless Love (2014)

Where you can watch it: Viki

Not to be confused with the Koreanovela of the same name in the early 2000s, Endless Love also stars Hwang Jung Eum and Ryu Soo Young. It's set in the '90s and shows how a woman, whom Kyung Ho's character is fond of, is willing to fight for her dreams and loved ones.
