  • We know moms are obsessed with Korean dramas and it’s their favorite form of self-care. But have you ever tried to get your hubby to watch your favorite shows with you?

    Dad-friendly K-dramas

    Husbands tend to stay away from K-dramas because romantic comedies don’t appeal to them, but now you have an excuse to make binge watching your date night! According to moms from the Facebook group Glam-o-Mamas, there were able to convert their husbands into fans with these titles.


    This action-packed thriller (with just the right amount of romance) will get your partner hooked! Cha Dal Gun (Lee Seung Gi) is a stuntman whose nephew dies in a plane crash while en route to Morocco. He soon realizes that the crash is part of a web of governmental conspiracies and he is forced to work with National Intelligent Service agent Go Hae Ri (Bae Suzy) to uncover the truth.

    Many say it’s like the Bourne movies but in Korean. The slick action scenes and plot twists will have you at the edge of your seats. Baka si hubby pa ang mangulit manood ng next episode!


    If your hubby loves zombie movies, then he won’t be able to resist this series. Set in the Joseon era (Korean dynasty), Crown Prince Lee Chang (Ju Ji Hoon) discovers that the mysterious plague that threatens the whole kingdom is also a plot to disown him as the rightful heir.

    The gripping story, the beautiful cinematography, and the realistic zombies will leave you wanting more. With only 12 episodes (we’re still waiting for the next season), we promise it will be an easy but fun watch.


    Dr. Romantic 1 & 2

    Despite the title, this medical drama perfectly blends romance with its thought-provoking storyline. Boo Yong Joo (Han Suk Yu), a top surgeon in one of the best hospitals in Seoul suddenly disappears after a traumatic incident.

    He is soon discovered working in a small hospital named Doldam and hiring “unwanted” doctors, training them to become the best doctors not only in terms of skills but with a heart for their patients.

    The drama was so successful in South Korea that it ran for two seasons, but you can start any season and still understand the plot. Watch out for a Pinay actress when watching the second installment!

    Memories of the Alhambra

    If your hubby is a gamer, he’ll love the twists and turns of this story, while you’ll love it for, ehem, Hyun Bin. He plays Yoo Jin Woo,CEO of an investment company who flies to Spain to meet the creator of a groundbreaking augmented reality (AR) game, Alhambra.

    The creator of the game has gone missing but Jin Woo meets his sister, Hee Joo (Park Shin Hye). The two get entangled in mysterious incidents and suddenly the real world and AR world gets blurred.

    What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim

    In this drama, a pompous CEO named Lee Young Joon (Park Seo Joon) suddenly realizes he has deeper feelings for his secretary, Kim Mi So (Park Min Young) when the latter decides to quit her job — because she’s had it with his arrogance, heh.
