From the release of sweet home to the release of the call, I think we all know the reason why all these horror kdramas are so good. It’s an undenying fact that no one does horror and thriller movies than Korean directors and writers. What makes these dramas so interesting to watch is the perfect balance between drama and action and horror. Let’s look at the list of best horror dramas and what makes it so amazing.

This is the first time for a Korean series to enter the top 10 on Netflix in the US. In 70 additional countries, it was also in the top ten on Netflix.

#Alive isn’t the only film based on Matt Naylor’s script for One.

Horror anthologies are common in Hollywood, but not very common in Korea. It seems to have changed with the publication of the anthology of horror short stories, Ghost Stories. Each episode is a standalone ghost story set in a city location, each story less than 10 minutes long.
Ghost Stories differ not only in that they are a collection of Korean horror stories but also in their length. Most anthology programs have episode lengths of at least 30 minutes, so it’s pretty surprising to see a very powerful horror story in such a short amount of time. Most of the episodes are modern reconstructions of Korean folktales.

Soon after, murders begin, and the minister fears that the Deer Mountain sect is involved.

With its two-season brutal zombie series and its first bonus episode due out on Netflix later this year, Kingdom is a zombie series that should focus on on-screen carnage. Set in Joseon-era Korea, the kingdom deals with a political conspiracy amid a zombie apocalypse. The
program is rather unsettling and contains a lot of blood, but it’s also delightfully theatrical and should be of interest to anyone who likes soap operas. The show is a mix of Game of Thrones and The Walking Dead, which is downright violent.
Combining demon possession and murder investigation, The Guest feels like a Korean reinterpretation of Twin Peaks, with a few quirky elements added appropriately. Psychic Peace is desperately trying to stop the evil demon called Hand or Guest in the series.
