It's no secret: we love our K-dramas here at Metro and we can hardly get enough of them. And who can blame us? South Korea has made TV and visual storytelling an art form and the global audience is truly blessed with some iconic stories that stand the test of time.


And some of these stories never really ever leave us. Among these stories, of course, are some from the horror and thriller genres that have left us speechless and, dare we say, wanting more. From a plethora of choice when it comes to zombie apocalyptic stories to the many stories that train the spotlight on monsters, ghosts, witches, and evil spirits, there are so many Korean dramas that have brought to life horror stories unlike we had ever seen before.
