Korean Drama List 2020

Which drama do you personally think was the best Korean Drama of 2020? For me personally, it was Hospital Playlist, followed by Mr. Queen, Flower of Evil, and True Beauty. Many people loved It’s Okay to Not Be Okay, but for me it wasn’t that good. I didn’t like the the female main character and didn’t care for the evil mother. Even Kim Soo-hyun couldn’t save the drama for me. Ditto for The King: Eternal Monarch. The best thing that came out of TKEM was Lee Min-ho riding a white horse and Lee Min-ho in his white naval uniform. He does look great in white. I also rooted for the Prime Minister more than Kim Go-Eun. But hey, it is my personal opinion. I’m perfectly OK with people loving those dramas. That’s why KDrama has so many fans — because there is always something for everyone.

2020 was a good year for KDrama fans as we were really spoiled by many choices. Do you know that there were almost 100 KDramas in that year alone? Here is the list of Korean Dramas that made the waves and into our hearts in 2020:
