Welp, I got addicted to Korean drama's in quarantine
'sigh'
But i digress.
Baso I need recommendations. My first one was Itaewon class twas a banger imo, then I watched like 20 diff romance and random ones, then memories of Alhambra and now W - two worlds apart.
I'm baso looking for shows with a lil twist as in 'Alhambra' they have that sword art online ting goin' on, then 'Itaewon class' was just beautiful with the protag building a business from scratch and getting revenge, etc and in 'W' the webtoon is coming to life ygm i wanna watch stuff like that, not just the typical basic plot that I already know the ending too :/
ffs I can't explain what im looking for properly but any help is appreciated lmao

Hotel del Luna
She was Pretty ( its sooo funny)
Shopping King Loui
Bride of the Water God
Suspicious Partner (amazing plot an keeps you on the edge)
Crash Landing on You
Ghost Train
Vagabond ( amazing action)

I suggest looking into Goblin, it's got the supernatural mystic vibe you're looking for. Also, My love from the star is a good shout (the whole fit alien from outer space) recommend that one. A really good aesthetically pleasing one is It's Okay to not be okay, really enjoying this one, focuses a lot on mental health and the coping mechanisms of different individuals in their day to day life. Here's a list of really good ones descendants of the sun (NO.1)The K2, Uncontrollably Fond,Crash Landing on you, Sky Castle (SOOOO GOOD)A Korean odyssey (seems like your type) Cheese in the trap, The Heirs, Healer and Extracurricular (a personal favourite)
