6 Original Titles on Netflix K-Drama Fans Will Love

I never really understood the fascination with K-Dramas... until someone literally forced me to watch 'Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo'. That's when I fell down the rabbit hole and became so obsessed, I never looked back. :p

Netflix has been a great help at satiating my thirst for K-Dramas and they have continued to grow their K-Drama library this 2019 with original titles that you can only find on their streaming service (provided you aren't a pirate, that is). Here are some of the original titles that have come out and are coming out this 2019 that you definitely shouldn't miss!
