So for some amazing reason the Media Library has quite an abundance of Korean TV series. This stuff is pretty amazing, they’re like telenovelas (Makjang!!) but usually with really nice cinematography. Below is our list of Korean TV dramas, but we also have even more Korean movies so if that’s your thing click this link: South Korean Feature Films
Goong = Princess Hours
Princess Hours is a Korean Drama based off of a Korean Manhwa, or South Korean Comic series, of the same name. It’s set in a world where Korea has an imperialistic royal family, who deal with their various Shakespearean-esque drama, scandals, and traditions. The show hit it’s peak in stardom in 2006 receiving multiple awards and huge popularity. It was later adapted into a musical, along with a spin-off series and a remake version in Thailand.
Queen & I
Queen & I or Queen In-hyun’s Man is about a couple who meet in unusual circumstances. One is a up-and-coming actress and the other is a scholar from 300 years ago who’s time traveled into modern day Korea. Fun fact, the actors that portray these characters wind up falling for each other in real life, and declare romance after the last episode’s broadcast. Aww.

I’d watch it for the occasional pastry.
