With my attempt at featuring the 5 best upcoming K-drama 2024, I have begun treading the new path of feature articles leaving the comfort zone of news and reviews which I wrote a few articles of – Sweet Home 2, Classroom of the Elite Season 3, and Ooku are a few of them. As someone who doesn’t like to commit to very long shows that stretch up to multiple seasons and also someone who loves deep and well-written characters, K-Dramas hit the nail right on the spot!

I love the 12 or 16-episode, one-season format. I cannot tell you the number of shows that I have watched before that are just a drag or are pointless filler and left with more holes in the plot than Swiss cheese. I am also a believer that the longer a show goes in terms of seasons, the worse it gets until it’s pretty much unwatchable because there’s nothing left to milk from it. Keeping that in mind I have decided to write about the 5 best upcoming K-Drama 2024.

I like how each K-Drama portrays a good set of values whether it’s related to family, partners, kids, or old strangers. In South Korea, you see a very active culture of protest, especially in the growing post-1960 democratization movements. So, citizen protests pop up in every imaginable K-drama from historical ones to thrillers to romantic comedies. Korean actors are often praised for their attractive appearances and talent. Even the villains in K-Dramas are charming. Most of the fans of ‘Strong Girl Nam-Soon’ went crazy over the villain more than the male lead.

Things That Grind My Gears

The crazy long buildups for just a single kiss are not always satisfying and adorable for me. Sometimes it’s just so lengthy that I wanna cancel my Netflix subscription RIGHT AWAY. However, K-Drama lovers find them rather comforting and adorable. So, will this ever-present aspect be vividly displayed in the 5 best upcoming K-Drama 2024 that I have meticulously picked? You have to wait a little more to find out.

Most K-Dramas start with a “Love-Hate” relationship, which then turns into a “Lovey-Dovey” relationship after the first few episodes. This is a very common and basic concept; it’d be good if they could break it and come up with something new. I’m not saying that they make similar dramas but it’s the starting. The endings are always different and most of the time beautiful. But it seems like they don’t know how to start the drama to get to the point where things go differently. Will they go any differently in the 5 best upcoming K-Drama 2024?

I’ve noticed that second-lead males are given way more character depth than female second-leads in a majority of K-Dramas. And oftentimes the second lead females are projected as whiny, manipulative, mean girls. But as much as possible I try to understand their characters’ motivations and the consequences of their actions, the poor writing leaving these characters underdeveloped is always the main reason for my displeasure. Have you seen a second-lead female who seems to deserve to be with the main guy?

Squid Game Season 2: Yes folks! The first entry of my 5 best upcoming K-Drama 2024 list is the global blockbuster Squid Game. At the end of Squid Game Season 1, Gi-Hun managed to beat the game against all odds. But the game’s not over yet. Following the death of the Squid Game creator, Gi-Hun discovers that the competition is still going on with new recruits. It would be easy to continue the story with Gi-Hun at center stage again. And it looks like that’s the route season two is going down. The fans can expect to be reunited with their favorite blood-thirsty K-Drama in the latter half of 2024.

All of Us Are Dead Season 2: All of Us Are Dead Season 2, like Sweet Home Season 2, will have to be an original story that goes beyond the webtoon. All of Us Are Dead season 1 covered the entirety of the webtoon, meaning season 2 will essentially be an original story. For All of Us Are Dead season 2 to work, it will have to go beyond the original characters, perhaps focusing on the wider impact of the zombie outbreak through the eyes of the military. This is the route Sweet Home Season 2 went it. Banking on that assumption I have included it in my 5 best upcoming K-Drama 2024 list.

Sweet Home Season 3: The third entry in the 5 best upcoming K-Drama is an epic. Netflix has been hitting it hard with K-Dramas and Sweet Home is no exception. Sweet Home was aired in 2020 and fast forward three years, the second season has dropped recently. Sweet Home Season 3 is set to premiere in the summer of 2024.  In the biggest surprise of the season, the last scene of the season 2 finale revealed that Lee Eun-hyuk did (kind of) survive the Green Home apartments’ collapse at the end of season 1. The original cast member is expected to return in season 3, where we’ll get answers for his return.

My Thoughts On 5 Best Upcoming K-Drama 2024

I always get annoyed watching U.S. shows where characters are in love, then fall out of love in later seasons, and then suddenly realize they’re in love in the final season only because writers realize they need to wrap things up. But in K-Dramas, there’s going to be an ending. I know there’s an end to the storyline, and I don’t have to watch 300 episodes to find out what it is. With K-Dramas it is different and that is why I came up with this list of the 5 best upcoming K-Drama 2024.

The thing I love about K-dramas is there isn’t one Asian person who’s relegated to being the weird foreign exchange student or something. Also, I get it that they are just normalizing LGBTQ+. But they don’t need to show it in every single series in my opinion. Well, enough fretting about the underserving Hollywood shows. Let’s wait for the 5 best upcoming K-Drama 2024 together with bated breaths!


Literature is a luxury; fiction is a necessity.
