While he’s got everything that the world has to offer, his life is turned upside down when Kim Mi So, his reliable secretary for nine years announces her resignation. Lee Young Joon attempts to win her back through various hilarious and heart-fluttering antics. So what is wrong with Secretary Kim, you may ask? Watch to find out! 


“Hwarang” (2016)


If you’re hoping to get to know more about Korean culture and history, make sure to add Hwarang to your watchlist. This period piece tells the story of Hwarang, young elite warriors who were tasked to protect the royal family and the Silla Kingdom. Park Seo-joon plays a commoner named Moo-myung (also known as “Dog-bird”)  who unexpectedly became a Hwarang. We then get to see the joys and struggles of these warriors, as well as the rivalry and friendship that forms among them. Plus, we not only get to see Park Seo-joon don a hanbok but also witness the origins of the actor’s real-life friend group called the “Wooga Squad,” which includes Park Hyung-sik and BTS’ V. (Count me in, please!) 


“Itaewon Class” (2020)

A complete 180 from his usual roles in romantic comedy K-dramas, he plays the role of Park Sae-ro Yi, a socially awkward ex-convict who you can’t help but root for. Despite going through a lot in life, he’s determined to get back up and persevere. He even opens a restaurant and bar called “Danbam” in Itaewon, a city known for its vibrant nightlife. After all, success is the best revenge and Park Sae-ro Yi embodies just that. What’s more, he’s made some awesome friends along the way, too!
