Watching a K-drama is not impossible even while you’re in the middle of the school year. After working our way through a few requirements, you can reward yourself with one to two episodes of your fave series. Got some extra time after school? Another episode! Plus, you can also treat it as something to look forward to after a long week of academics.

But TBH, with all the overwhelming amount of schoolwork and the weight of online classes, even a single episode of our favorite series would not fit our tight schedule. But just in case it’s your school break, and you need a little extra *something* to cheer you up, you can always get back to your K-drama grind. Not sure what to watch? Worry not because we have compiled some slice-of-life K-dramas so you don’t have to!
