Kinain ng Sistema: My K-Drama Starter List

Do you still remember your first K-drama? I don’t. It was probably a toss between Four Sisters and Fantasy Couple. Video streams were a rarity back then so I had to order DVD copies of fan-subbed dramas to be able to watch my favorites. The thing with K-dramas is that they’re easy to binge-watch.

So what makes it a drama worth checking out?🤔
