Drama executives are always looking for new sources in hopes of producing the next hit Korean drama. It’s not like drama writers are incapable of coming up with great materials. However, making a drama of something that already has a following and is already proven to be a hit is surely profitable. Therefore, it shouldn’t be surprising to know that many Korean dramas are actually based on webtoons or Korean comics. Why? It’s because popular webtoons will surely have a good story, hence the popularity. They also have an established fanbase that will likely watch the drama adaptation. If you put it like this, you’d see how easy life would be for drama producers. They only need to cast the perfect actors and viola, hit drama served.
Up until now, there have been many Korean dramas based on webtoons. Many of which did well in terms of ratings, catapulting its actors to a peak of success. Park Seo Joon seems to be an expert in picking up dramas based on webtoons that amass great success. In fact, his last two works, What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim? and Itaewon Class are both one of the highest-rating Korean dramas of all time. However, not all adaptations do well. The massively popular webtoon Cheese in the Trap is a great example of a drama adaptation failure. Nobody liked it, not even the webtoon author. If you’re on the market for the next Kdrama to watch, why don’t you check our list of the best Korean dramas based on webtoons? We assure you we’ve already weeded out the bad ones. Enjoy watching!
