12 Must-Watch Cohabitation K-Dramas

Grab a friend and get cozy binge-watching our list of the best K-dramas that have our favorite lead characters living together!

From reluctant roommates to blissfully in love; we can't get enough of the cohabitation TV drama trope in K-dramas!


There’s just something about seeing two people, normally from widely different backgrounds, needing to get along under the same roof that just clicks and makes for an incredibly satisfying watch.  The reasons the characters need to live together range and vary, sometimes it’s a misunderstanding and sometimes it’s a matter of life-and-death, but any K-drama fan will admit to love watching the leads be in close quarters and having to work differences out until they eventually fall for each other. Cohabitation is a familiar and common theme in many of the best K-dramas for a reason—when done right, it’s just so good!
