Asian dramas have become a worldwide phenomenon and we have the "Hallyu" or Korean Wave to thank for it. Do you know who else we have to thank for the wealth of Asian dramas we're enjoying right now? Netflix. Yeah, everyone's favorite streaming platform has been instrumental in spreading quality Asian programming to the rest of the world. From romantic Korean dramas to sweeping historical Chinese epics, there's a lot to choose from. It is only right, then, that we pay this little homage and name some of the best Asian dramas on Netflix that you guys can check out right now. We hope you enjoy them as much as we did and please, do let us know what you thought of them in the comments section below as well.

  1. 1Itaewon Class


    Itaewon Class is an underdog revenge story filled with flawed but likable characters and a love triangle that quite frankly, could go either way. It's one of the most inspired writing in a K-drama that we've seen so far and we urge you to take a look at this one. It's good.

  1. 2Crash Landing on You


    Everyone's been raving about Crash Landing on You - or CLOY as they like to refer to it as - and we can see why. It's a romantic tale between star-crossed lovers and there are enough action and humor to keep things varied and interesting. It's a great Asian drama overall and we think you'll enjoy watching it.

  2. 3Boys Over Flowers


    The Boys Over Flowers manga had numerous TV show adaptations but we would like to focus our attention on the Korean version as we think it stands out from the rest. If you're a K-drama fan, Boys Over Flowers is an easy recommendation and you can expect a drama-filled show with fun characters and a lot of heart.

  1. 4Kingdom


    Kingdom is an Asian drama with a unique take on the whole zombie genre with its historical setting. As you delve deeper into the story though, you'll realize it also serves as a medium for the exploration of sociopolitical themes. It shows how rash decisions fueled by greed could cause the downfall of an entire dynasty.

  2. 5Eternal Love


    Chinese dramas have seen a surge in popularity lately and one show that's being mentioned a lot is Eternal Love. It's a sprawling historical epic and romance story spanning three lifetimes. If you're new to Chinese dramas, be sure to check this one out.
