6 Must-Watch Sports K-Dramas to Try Out

Get inspired to move and sweat it out with this list of binge-worthy sports and sports-related Korean dramas!

The sports genre isn’t the easiest to sell to a wide audience. A basketball-oriented drama may only catch the attention of basketball fans. A tennis-oriented drama may only catch the attention of tennis fans. There’s the matter of technicalities, too; too much deters a viewer from tuning in, and too little takes the sports factor out of the equation.


K-dramas have done a pretty great job at reeling viewers in by tossing comedy, friendship, and romance into the mix. Instead of simply zeroing in on rules, stats, and matches, the intricacies of the sport itself are woven with the characters’ development, orienting the story in such a way that it remains relatable and inspiring.
