Korean dramas are an elite form of entertainment — from cultural elements that are often similar to Pakistani traditions, to compelling storytelling; from emotional depth to high production quality — they bring something to the table for everyone.

We compiled a list of new K-dramas on Netflix you can watch as you stay up all night waiting for sehri.

1. Chicken Nugget

We know we shouldn’t be talking too much about food during Ramazan, but hear us out! This comedy follows a woman stepping into a strange machine only to be turned into a chicken nugget — yup, you read that right! Her father, and a man who’s crushing on her embark on a quest to turn her back into a human. Silly hijinks ensue.

All 10 episodes are out on Netflix.

2. Captivating the King

This one is for all historical romance lovers. It follows the twisted love story between a miserable, untrusting king and a woman who secretly seeks revenge. The two fall for each other “amid a royal and political power struggle”, according to Netflix. No spoilers but be prepared for potential heartbreak.

All 16 episodes are available for streaming.

3. Doctor Slump

Calling all Park Hyung-sik fans! The actor stars as a brilliant doctor in Doctor Slump who is going through a — surprise, surprise — slump. As he hits the lowest point in his life and career, he runs into his school rival, another genius doctor going through a rough patch. Yes, the title gets very literal. The two find solace and companionship in each other as they navigate life’s rough waters.

The entire show is now streaming on Netflix.

4. A Killer Paradox

This show lands somewhere between being a crime thriller and a dark comedy. It follows a college student who accidentally commits murder only to find out that the victim was a serial killer. In an attempt to cover up his crimes, the anti-hero lead falls into a cycle of murder and discovers that all his victims were wrongdoers. Emboldened with this knowledge the main lead keeps getting away with his crimes as he is relentlessly pursued by a detective trying to catch him red-handed.

All eight episodes are available to stream.

5. Queen of Tears

Queen of Tears chronicles the married life of a rich third-generation chaebol (owner of a large conglomerate) heiress and the son of farmers, as their love fizzles out. However, a twist in events and a change of scenery causes their love to gradually blossom again. This show is for fans of swoon-worthy romances, and it has some laughs and heartfelt moments along the way.

Four out of 16 episodes are available on Netflix, with new episodes dropping every Saturday and Sunday.

What do you call person on a two-week binge-watching Netflix? Fired. I guess this article is geared towards housewives.

K-Dramas simply ROCK just like Pak dramas used to do it back in 80s and 90s. I would hope our drama production companies will start watching K-dramas so that they can learn how to produce an entertaining tv dramas rather repeating same old cheap script of Saas-Bhahu or mian biwi fighting dramas.

Seriously, instead of motivating people to utilize this month for some deeds, you are telling to watch these dramas ?

Very good, this is how ramazan should be spent. Tragic!

Better still, switch off the TV and do what Ramzaan is here for.

Catching up on or binge watching tv shows is not the purpose of Ramadan. This is not a month devoted to entertainment, dramas, shows etc. this is a very special months to collect extra good deeds. Seriously what do people not know what Ramadan means? This is the problem when a nation is steeped in ignorance and never bothered to study islam, leg alone understand it. I guess I missed the chapter devoted to Entertainment and K dramas.
