But we’re sure that if your fiance will join for the next round, there will be no qualms in watching any of these with your man.

Below are five K-Dramas you might want to try for your next date night or when you want to get your mind off wedding planning. Here’s a tip: Start the first episode with your favorite K-eats!

Vagabond (2019) | This series follows Cha Dal-Geon (Lee Seung-Gi), a stunt man who dreams of being an internationally renowned actor and his quest to uncover the truth behind his nephew’s plane crash from Incheon to Morocco. He asks for help from an NIS (National Intelligence Services) agent undercover at the Korean Embassy in Morocco, Go Hae-Ri (Bae Suzy). Soon, Dal-Geon and Hae-Ri uncover darker truths than they expected. Genre: Spy, crime, action, thriller romance
2. Crash Landing On You (2019) | The 2019 series that converted non-K-drama fans can’t be left out of the list. Crash Landing On You follows South Korean heiress and executive Yoon Se-Ri (Son Ye-Jin) and her accidental emergency landing in North Korea because of a paragliding accident. She is found by Ri Jeong-Hyeok (Hyun-Bin), a North Korean army officer. The two try to find a way for Se-Ri to return home without causing problems for her or Jeong-Hyeok and a romance ensues. The light moments will make it interesting and fun for your man to watch with you. Genre: Romantic drama, romantic comedy
3. Descendants of the Sun (2016) | This is another well-loved classic that will likely require re-watching on your end.

Kim Shin has been waiting 900 years for his “bride” who will bring an end to his immortal life.
