You must be getting tired of the same old cheesy K-dramas that are full of tooth-rotting fluff. If you want to watch K-dramas with more compelling themes, medical K-dramas are worth a try. There are a lot of medical Korean dramas you can watch but only a number are actually worth your time. You don't have to be well-versed in medical terms because these K-dramas define them for you. The surgical scenes aren't even explicit most of the time. Yes, if seeing blood makes your skin itch, you don't have to worry about it in these K-dramas. The term medical itself is already broad and it can encompass mental and physical health. Either you see the lead clad in a white lab coat or going through a mental health issue. Get ready to binge-watch these top Korean medical dramas and enjoy!
