We can safely say that South Korean culture has broken some of the thickest barriers that exoticized its culture in the eyes of the Western world and has penetrated the global culture. One of the most popular ways in which this has happened is the exponential popularity of its romantic-fantasy dramas which took off with some of its the critically-acclaimed predecessors such as Boys Over Flowers, The Heirs and more. The popularity and fandom of such dramas were successful in expanding even more when they became a part of the Netflix library.
With 2023 in full gear, it seems that Netflix is also all ready to expand its library of K-dramas which constitute an even more riveting storyline and compelling characters. Another smash hit arriving on Netflix in 2023, Destined With You is an upcoming South Korean Netflix Original romantic drama that stars k-pop star Rowoon along with actress Jo Bo Ah. It is directed by Nam Ki Hoon and written by screenwriter Nah Ji Sul.
