For those who are interested in Korean mythology, then My Roommate Is a Gumiho is a great mix of fantasy and romance. For reference, a “gumiho” is a nine-tailed fox that often appears in Korean folktales and legends.

Based on the webtoon of the same name, My Roommate Is a Gumiho follows Shin Woo Yeo (Jang Ki Yong), a 999-year-old gumiho who yearns to become a human. His life takes a turn when Lee Dam (Lee Hye Ri) accidentally swallows a fox bead. Once a regular college student who has never been in a relationship before, Lee Dam soon becomes entangled with the gumiho. To try to find a solution, the two start living together in a house.

3. The Kidnapping Day

The Kidnapping Day is a K-drama that went under the radar among international K-drama fans. One reason could be because it is only available for streaming on Prime and barely received any promotion. However, it is a must-watch and is arguably one of the best K-dramas to be released in 2023.

The story follows Kim Myeong Jun (Yoon Kye Sang). His daughter is in desperate need of funds for an operation. Although it goes against his morals, Kim Myeong Jun accepts a job to kidnap 11-year-old Choi Ro Hee (Jeon Yu Na). As he attempts to fulfill his plan, he accidentally hits Choi Ro Hee with his car. Though she survives, she loses her memory. The two then start living together. When he tries to return Choi Ro Hee, Kim Myeong Jun walks into a messy crime scene: the death of Choi Ro Hee’s parents. Now, the two must work together to discover what happened in this mystery.

4. Death’s Game

Another thriller to add to your list is Death’s Game. This drama is the perfect mix of fantasy, mystery, and horror, a far cry from the K-dramas that often become mainstream. For those wanting to branch out of romance, this is the drama for you.

The story follows Coi Yee Jae (Seo In Guk), who loses his will to live after failing to land a job for seven years. He attempts to take his own life when he encounters Death (Park So Dam). Death, disgusted by Choi Yee Jae’s lack of concern for dying, chooses to punish him instead.

Will he live, or will he go to hell?

5. A Witch’s Love
