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.

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.
