Welcome back, Sukki!
The Best Lee Jong Suk K-Dramas And TV Shows To Watch

If you’ve been watching K-dramas for quite some time now, Lee Jong Suk should be no stranger to you. But did you know that the stunner debuted as a model in 2005 before he became an actor? Apart from that, he was also a K-pop idol trainee under SM Entertainment, and appeared in 2NE1’s “I Don’t Care” MV. You can say that Jong Suk, or Sukki as called by his fans, has become successful since he walked the runway, and is now celebrating his 10th year as an actor.

Now that Sukki is back after enlisting as a public service worker in the military, we're all anticipating his next project. While we're waiting, we can binge-watch his K-dramas (and, uhm, replay the kissing scenes) for now! 

Here's a list of Lee Jong Suk's dramas and TV shows that you can watch on Netflix, Viu, and Viki:

1. Prosecutor Princess (2010)

Watch on: Viki

Prosecutor Princess started Lee Jong Suk’s acting career, where he played the role of Lee Woo Hyun. The SBS drama is about the transformation story of an almost *perfect* prosecutor, complete with the looks and the brain, who meets a mysterious attorney. You will love this if you’re a romantic, since the show features how true love unfolds.

Starring Kim So Yeon, Park Si Hoo, and Han Jung Soo, *fetus* Sukki’s appearance might be short, but we all can’t deny how adorable he is (which proved that he never aged even after a decade. Sana all.) here.


2. Secret Garden (2010)

Watch on: Netflix, Viu, Viki

The iconic Secret Garden is where you can see Lee Jong Suk as a gay genius musician (Trivia time: Jay Park was supposed to play this role). This rom-com tale of a rich-boy-meets-poor-girl is far from your usual Cinderella story, and is injected with an element of fantasy. Switching bodies, anyone?

Sukki is Han Tae Sun in this drama, and stars alongside Hyun Bin, Ha Ji Won, and Yoon Sang Hyun. When asked about the difficulty of playing his character, he said in an interview: “Working as a model, you come across a lot of gay people in the industry, and I've been close with many of them since I was younger, so I'm used to it. I felt no pressure at all.”

3. School 2013(2013)

Watch on: Viu, Viki

From the popular anthology series School, this 2013 version is filled with angst and shows how the Korean academic system works: The pressure, brain-numbing exams, and even social injustice. While it features the reality in a student’s life, the memorable friendships in this coming-of-age drama will be your biggest takeaway after watching.

This was Lee Jong Suk's first lead role, and he played a former delinquent who becomes class president. He is joined by Kim Woo Bin, Jang Nara, Choi Daniel, Park Se Young, and Kwak Jung Wook. School 2013 shows the school life beyond books, and started our fondness for bromance.

5. Doctor Stranger (2014)

Watch on: Netflix, Viu, Viki

Lee Jong Suk becomes South Korea’s top surgeon, Park Hoon, who escaped from North Korea, in the medical drama Doctor Stranger. Here you can witness Sukki in a white lab coat while performing the toughest operations. Once you get engrossed in the show’s surgery scenes, pursuing a career in medicine might cross your mind just like how it did with ours.

Park Hoon’s love interest here is Song Jae Hee (Jin Se Yeon), whom he planned to flee North Korea with, but failed to do so. When he slowly gained recognition as a doctor in the South, he promised himself to reunite with Jae Hee no matter what.

6. Pinocchio (2014)

Watch on: Netflix, Viu, Viki

After wearing a stethoscope around his neck, Lee Jong Suk now held a reporter’s microphone in the K-drama Pinocchio. Journalism students, you will be more inspired after watching the story of Choi Dal Po, who was determined to look for his lost brother and clear his family’s name after an issue.

Park Shin Hye’s portrayal here as Dal Po’s love interest-slash-competition named Choi In Ha is one of her most remarkable characters yet: A reporter who suffers from Pinocchio Syndrome. This means that she breaks into a series of hiccups every time she lies, and as a reporter, that can be both a good and bad thing.

7. W: Two Worlds (2016)

Watch on: Netflix, Viu, Viki

Lee Jong Suk is Kang Chul, a CEO and Olympic gold medalist from an alternate universe in the fantasy drama W: Two Worlds, which became one of the most talked-about K-dramas in the year it was aired. This is also Sukki’s most iconic character to date, and whenever his name is mentioned, W: Two Worlds would always come first in our minds.

Sukki is partnered with Han Hyo Joo (this is her comeback drama after six years!) who played the role of cardiothoracic surgeon, Oh Yeon Joo, and is the daughter of a popular illustrator who created a webtoon named…you guessed it—W. Together. They become this beautiful couple from a dream-like world that will make you wonder about the possibilities life can give.

8. While You Were Sleeping (2017)

Watch on: Netflix, Viu, Viki

“Baby I’m falling, head over heels…” really, who doesn’t know this K-drama OST that sends goosebumps every time you listen to it? In case you don’t, the track is from the series While You Were Sleeping, where Lee Jong Suk plays another crime-solving prosecutor named Jung Jae Chan.

This drama is packed with a powerhouse cast including Bae Suzy (who plays the role of journalist Nam Hong Joo) and Jung Hae In (a police officer named Han Woo Tak). Along with Jong Suk, their three characters can see the future in their dreams, and if that’s not appealing enough to watch this timeless show, we don’t know what is.

The show also stars Lee Na Young (who is actually Sukki’s ideal woman. Awwww!) aka Kang Dan-I, who is struggling to make ends meet after a failed marriage until she rekindled her love for books in Heun Ho’s company. Joining her are Jung Eugene, Kim Tae Woo, Kang Ki Doong, and our favorite ahjumma, Kim Sun Young.
