If you're going to ask me, 2021 has the best K-drama lineup after 2016. This year, we were ~blessed~ with K-dramas that healed us, made us laugh so hard, brought us to tears, and shocked the hell out of us. We also watched series that depicted reality and portrayed society. 2021 marks the long-awaited comebacks of our fave Korean actors, too, such as Jun Ji HyunSong Hye Kyo, and Park Hyung Sik.

Filipinos were so hooked on these recent shows that they have spent a lot of time searching about them on the internet. Google just released the top-searched Korean dramas of the year and it's no surprise that Squid Game is at the number one spot. I mean, the Netflix original series was the talk of town FOR MONTHS and it's not just in the Philippines but also across the world. The psychological thriller set trends, broke records, and catapulted Korean actors to global fame.

The internet was on fire when True Beauty aired and everyone's social media feed was filled with content related to it.
