If you had all the time in the world, anong gagawin mo? For many of us, we’d probably dedicate a good amount just to binge every single K-drama that piques our interest, especially now that more and more Korean shows are being made more accessible to us Pinoy fans.

If you’re in need of a temporary escape from the real world, here are five K-dramas worth checking out. P.S. They’re all available for streaming on Viu!

If you’re into rom-coms…

A Piece of Your Mind

This K-drama features the love story of Ha Won, an AI programmer, and Seo Woo, a classical music recording engineer, and stars Jung Hae In and Chae Soo Bin. In a report from Soompi, Jung Hae In shares that he accepted the role in the drama because he wanted to challenge himself by taking on an interesting role that dealt with artificial intelligence. He also adds that, unlike his character on the show, he’s never had to deal with unrequited love IRL. The show will be up for streaming on March 24, 2020.


If you’re into something light…

Meow, The Secret Boy

Cat lovers, you might find this particularly interesting! Meow, The Secret Boy, also called Welcome, is a new K-drama based on a webtoon of the same name, which follows the story of a cat named Hong Jo (who can transform into human form, mind you) and his human owner Sol Ah. The two leads are played by Kim Myung Soo, better known as L from Korean boy band INFINITE, and Shin Ye Eun, who previously starred in He Is Psychometric with GOT7's Park Jin Young. It will be available for streaming on March 26, 2020.

If you’re into Sci-Fi…

365: Repeat the Year

If you’re into sports…

They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted?

I have forgotten when was the last time we shared a smile - the last time when I saw the glow in your eyes and the last time when you whispered an I love you to me. I have forgotten when, but here I am - writing to you again.

I do not know if you will read this or you will just add this one to my proses and poems that you left unread, but you see, I am still hoping. I am mailing the pain of us to the gods out there - hoping they can take the pain away. I should have gotten over you, but instead of forgetting and accepting our ending, I am writing about us in tissue sheets, carving about us on trees, telling about us on the back of my journals, hoping that a thousand or a million write ups about us, can make me forget about what happened.

I am writing, waiting for the point where I can no longer write anymore, for I have none to tell - but when? I have nothing in me anymore, but the memories of us - and no matter how hard I try put those to its own grave, the memories grow back like lilies in the swamp - painful and beautiful at the same time.

No matter how hard I try to silence those and put it at the back of my mind, those ring back, playing like the favorite song we used to listen. They say heartbreaks turn into poetry and that is what happening to us - but poetry should be dulcet and dreamy, why does ours sound like pain and agony? They say time heals all wounds, but it has been ages - is heartbreak exempted? Darling, I guess not.
