If you're like me, once you've finished a K-Drama you are ready to jump right back in to the next story. Whether it be romance or action, we are here to recommend 5 K-Dramas released on Netflix in 2022.

1.) Business Proposal

First up we have Business Proposal. You've probably heard of this one due to the number of various memes circling around the “fighting girl,” scene when the second lead is having a conversation in the car with her cousin.

This is your stereotypical cute K-Drama. However, the plot is switched up when the leads best friend Jin Young Seo (Seol In-ah) convinces Shin Ha Ri (Se-Jeong Kim) to go on a blind date in her place. Jin Young Seo's father has been trying to set her up with potential marriage partners for years, but Seo is more interested in falling in love than having an arranged marriage. Therefore, she convinces Ha Ri to go on the blind date to “scare” away her date. You see, Ha Ri and Seo have done this quite a few times in the past, and they have never had a problem scaring away men before. 

In an unexpected turn of events the plan back fires and the man that Ha Ri went on a date with, Kang Tae Mu (Ahn Hyo-Seop), is intrigued by her and wants to see her again. From there the string of lies that Ha Ri and Seo had planned start to unfold, and love happens in unexpected ways.

This drama is not out of the ordinary in the way that the plot is written. However, there are a lot of truly romantic and cute moments that are worth watching. My favorite part would definitely have be the second lead Seo's romance, you'll have to watch to know what I'm talking about!

2.) Forecasting Love & Weather

Up next we have Forecasting Love & Weather. This drama really highlights the difficulties of being in an office romance and how it can affect both your personal and professional life. 

Lead character Jin Ha Kyung (Park Min-Young) is the chief director for the KMA weather services and is engaged to Han Ki Joon (Bak Yoon) from the public relations department. They have been together for 10 years and decided that it was finally time to tie the knot. After they purchase an apartment together Jin comes home to find Han cheating on her with one of the reporters from his department, she is devastated. 

Now having to come to work every day with her ex is proving to be more difficult than she had imagined. When Jin starts falling for someone new she is faced with the decision of whether or not to make the same mistake again.

This drama is different from others in the since that the characters are very genuine with their feelings right from the start. This is quite refreshing because as we've seen in the past with other dramas, characters are always trying to deny their feelings for another character or pretend that they don't have any feelings. It is this genuineness of the characters that truly makes the drama really enjoyable to watch.

For our fifth and final pick All of us are Dead we decided to switch it up a bit. This action packed thriller series will really get you wondering about what could happen out here in the real world. When Hyosan High School is hit by a science experiment gone wrong, an outbreak quickly turns many of the students into human eating zombies.

The students who are not yet infected must fight to stay alive while trying to navigate their way out of the school. The story focuses on two best friends Nam On-jo (Park Ji-hu) and Lee Cheong-san (Yoon Chan-young) who are trapped in a classroom and surrounded by the flesh eating zombies.

With no food or water and communication cut-off to the outside world, the students not yet infected must use the resources and equipment that they have on hand at the school to best protect themselves from the malicious beasts outside. Otherwise they face the danger of becoming infected

In this thrilling action you never know what is around the corner and with every episode you are left guessing what will happen next or who will survive. If you are looking to switch up your normal K-Drama vibes I would definitely recommend this thriller.
