Last year was an amazing year for K-dramas. Many great dramas came out in 2019, but you probably didn’t have so much time to prioritize watching them. However, now you have plenty of time to catch up with all the dramas you missed last year. It was tricky to pin down the 10 best dramas of 2019. One, because there are too many to choose from.

There is a long list of K-dramas that aired in 2019 but there are some that stand out. We have narrowed down our search to dramas that aired in 2019 and had great acting, thought-provoking storyline and amazing cast. Also, if there is international streaming availability.
