Need a good laugh? All the best laugh-out-loud Korean dramas
We’ve seen our share of Korean dramas that are overly dramatic, gruesome, and downright sad. Every K-drama has a blend of emotions, sorrowful and happy, but sometimes we just want to see one that makes us laugh out loud!
Korean dramas always bring to the table some form of comedy to keep us entertained, even in the darkest dramas. With so many funny series out there to choose from it might be a little daunting finding something you like, especially when everyone has their own sense of humor. Here are a few of the funniest Korean dramas for you to peruse.
The Sound of Your Heart
This series is based on Korea’s longest-running webtoon series. The Sound of Your Heart follows the hilarious antics of cartoonist Cho Seok (Lee-kwang Soo), his wife Aebong (Jung So-min), and Cho Seok’s ridiculous family. The humor can be a little over-the-top so if slap-stick is your schtick then check out this funny drama on Netflix.
