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 investigative shows with a dash of supernatural…


Anong gagawin mo kung may superpower ka? For this show’s lead character, he develops the power to read people’s memories when he was in high school and went on to become a detective when he grew up. The show is also based on a webtoon and stars Yoo Seung Ho and Lee Se Young.


If you’re into Sci-Fi…

365: Repeat the Year

In this time-slip drama, 10 people time travel to one year ago in order to ~reset~ their lives. But of course, with any time travel-related storylines, some things are bound to go wrong. The drama stars Lee Joon Hyuk and Nam Ji Hyun and will be available on Viu starting March 24, 2020.

If you’re into sports…

Handsome Tigers

Handsome Tigers is a variety show all about basketball. Knowing Bros’ Seo Jang Hoon is enlisted as head coach and forms a team called Handsome Tigers consisting of Lee Sang Yun, Julien Kang, Kang Kyung Jun, Kim Seung Hyun, Showry, Seo Ji Suk, Yoo Seon Ho, and ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo. It also features Red Velvet’s Joy as the team’s manager!

Why our high school barkada is the best?

Remembering our high school years entails quite a lot reminiscing of the things we all been through when we were younger. You’ve experience a lot of new things during those 4 wonderful years and did most of them with the few people you consider your barkada. And through a series of all the lunch breaks you had together, the walks you took on the way home, and taking the same classes, you never thought you’d survive, you have made your life’s greatest friends.

Here are some of the reasons why your high school barkada is the best:

1. You figured out early teenage life together. The transition one have undergone from being a kid to a teenager wasn’t easy. For a moment you are not sure whether you should have played with your friends during recess or you should have just sat down and ate your food because you were too old for games. But whatever it is you chose to do, having friends who were as clueless as you make everything feel easier because you know, deep down, you’d figure things out eventually. You just need good company.

2. They were with you during your “jeje“ days. I bet you have pictures taken with Camera360 and Retrica. You also have pictures edited using Pizap with embarrassing captions and you somehow kept some of them so you could have something to post online during their birthdays.

3. They know all your exes. They will never EVER forget the name of an ex-boyfriend, an ex-fling, an ex-crush, and an almost you had. They will remind you of your every questionable love decision but you’ll just laugh anyway while saying “Past is past”.

4. They never judge you. They have welcomed you to their lives when you thought jelly shoes and checkered polos were the bomb! They were quick to have told your teachers that you were not feeling well so you could go home when you really just needed to poop. You tell them every embarrassing story you have and were fine with it.


5. You can always count on them. From the moment you first fell in love and the moment you first had your heart broken, they were with you. They were with you the moment you lost a parent and at moments when you thought you had nothing. Through every break-up and breakthrough, they were there to be your support system.

6. They are your family. Your high school friend’s family is your own family’s extension. Their parents are like your own. Don’t you feel a little kilig whenever your friend’s parents call you “anak”? And then eventually calling them mama and papa became so natural? I felt that, all the time.

7. They will always be your home. They are your place of refuge and security, the place who offers you their hands when you feel lost and the place you run to when you need saving. No matter how much time and distance separate you, they will be the one’s that you always long for and they are the one’s that you will always return to.
