Binge-watching K-dramas is not an easy feat. Most K-dramas will require you to sit for at least one hour per episode. Not to mention, you’ll also need enough time to digest all the dialogue, the feels, and the plot. But it’s all honestly worth it because there are a handful of well-made K-dramas with A+ acting. Some viewers even go as far as rewatching them because they’re just that good. If you need to narrow down which dramas are worth a second run, we asked our followers for the shows they’ve rewatched and these are the top answers:

Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

Starring: IU, Lee Joon Gi, Kang Ha Neul

Period dramas aren't everyone's cup of tea, but surprisingly, this K-drama is one of the most answered shows in our poll. Go Ha Jin, played by IU, ends up time traveling back to the Goryeo Dynasty and into the body of Hae Soo. There, she meets the princes and gets intertwined in family and political shenanigans.

Crash Landing On You

Starring: Son Ye Jin, Hyun Bin

With an interesting storyline involving North Korea and a cross-border love story, it wasn't a surprise to see CLOY on this list. The supporting characters also make the drama a whole lot more interesting and worth rewatching.

Reply 1988

Starring: Park Bo Gum, Lee Hyeri, Ryu Jun Yeol, Go Kyung Pyo

If you're fond of plots that heavily revolve around family, friendship, and feels in general, this drama is a must-watch. It also gives you a glimpse of life in Seoul for the regular peeps. 

Goblin

Starring: Gong Yoo, Kim Go Eun, Lee Dong Wook

Kim Go Eun, Gong Yoo, and Lee Dong Wook, 'nuff said. Fans of the fantasy genre will find this K-drama worth watching, but the cast and the plot will make you replay the episodes as often as you possibly can.

The Heirs

Chaebol sons and friends-turned-enemies Kim Tan and Choi Young Do end up falling for the same girl, regular highschooler Eun Sang. There's nothing quite like reliving the good old times of high school drama and puppy love through this classic drama. It's also refreshing to see younger versions of some of your favorite K-drama stars today.

Descendants Of The Sun

Starring: Song Joong Ki, Song Hye Kyo

Ah, the K-drama that launched the Song-Song ship. While the two lead stars-turned-couple have ended their marriage, DOTS remains a popular drama and a mainstay on people's watch list. There's even a local adaptation of the show!

Hotel Del Luna

Starring: IU, Yeo Jin Goo, Lee Do Hyun

IU plays a thousand-year-old extravagant and short-tempered hotelier, which is refreshing to see for someone Korean fans have deemed as the Nation's Little Sister. She meets her match in Chan Sung, the only human employee of her mystical hotel, played by Yeo Jin Goo. The drama also features the life stories of the other characters for a more interesting chain of events.

Cold Food

The most thrilling and delightful moment of any school day is opening up your baon during breaks. There is always so much excitement in unveiling your homemade meal and snacks housed inside matching heat-insulating containers. Because preparing packed meals is an age-old tradition of showing parental love, loved ones pour effort into curating a nutritious meal accompanied by a selection of side dishes, desserts, and beverages daily; it reminds us that we are being taken care of, even from far away.

Baon plays a significant role in a Filipino childhood. Almost every Filipino child comes to school with baon made especially for them by their parents or household helpers. Even Filipinos in the labor force continue to bring baon for varying reasons: to save money, recycle leftovers, cater to personal taste, or attend to special needs. Nonetheless, eating your baon is a heart-warming experience that allows Filipinos to bring a piece of home along with them wherever they go.

Even other cultures practice making packed lunch. In Japan, mothers create bento--Japanese meals in partitioned boxes. Because of the popularity of bento, trends have emerged, such as the Kyaraben, or character-themed bento. Naturally, Japanese parents and students began competing for who had the cutest and tastiest bento, and this is similar to what I have witnessed in my own childhood. I remember seeing my classmates sharing their snacks and lunches. They would compare and boast about their parents' or yayas’ cooking. In my case, I never had the chance to join in the competition or indulge in homemade cooking. Up until this day, I have never brought any baon to school.

For a long time, I envied others. As trivial or petty as it may seem, not having baon became a problem for my grade school self. During that time, I had to sit in a separate cafeteria away from my friends because the kids who bought food were assigned to sit elsewhere. You could consider me spoiled, but I wanted to experience something most kids did. I had food at home, so what made it so hard to bring some with me to school?

Now that I am on my final year in high school I have come to realize the benefits of purchasing my own food. Since I spent on food everyday, I learned to budget my allowance at a young age. Over the years, I learned to practice self-control whenever I wanted to eat more greasy fries and drink sweetened beverages. I have tasted the strangest viands at the school cafeterias, and I have repeatedly satiated myself over my latest delicious discoveries. Despite the struggles, I am thankful that I have never had baon because of what I have learned. Not to mention, I never had to experience eating cold food.
