Nothing beats unwinding on a weekend after a busy work week. Whether you enjoy spending weekends out and about or just kicking back to have a more mellow two-day break, wrapping up a busy week with a K-drama is always a good idea.
Here’s are five recently released K-dramas on Disney+ Hotstar you should stream based on how you typically spend your weekends:
1. Hitting up the badminton court for some friendly competition
If your week isn’t complete until you hit the badminton courts with your best friends, this series was made for you. Going to You at a Speed of 493km tells the story of the unexpected bond that blooms between a badminton player forced out of the sport when a scandal takes over her life and another who sees the game strictly as a job. As you watch sparks fly when Park Tae-yang and Park Tae-joon finally battle it out on the court, it’s sure to get your heart racing just as fast as an intense rally on the court.
2. Taking road trips to the nearest food city
If taking a drive to the nearest city just to get your hands on a delicious meal sounds right up your alley, be sure to add Link: Eat Love Kill to your watchlist. Served with a side of mystery, romance, and unexplainable supernatural events, the series follows a seemingly cold-hearted chef who finds himself uncontrollably bursting into tears or laughter at random times. Follow along to watch the mystery unfold as he discovers that the emotions he’s experiencing mirrors those of an inexplicably unlucky woman.
3. Visiting your relatives (and hearing the age-old advice about the best career to pursue)
Making time to meet up with your relatives can often make your weekends a little brighter, but that typically comes with hearing well-intended, but often unsolicited career advice. In a series that features the career ideals of all our relatives’, Doctor Lawyer tells the story of an elite but ruined surgeon who turned his life around to become a medical lawyer. Starring magnetic actors So Ji-sub and Im Soo-hyang, stream the series to watch how a medical crime lawyer fights tooth and nail to bring down doctors who abuse their power.
4. Unwinding with a massage and retail therapy
After a long week of work or school, it’s no surprise that your weekend activity of choice is to make your way to the mall for some retail therapy or to visit the spa – a habit that Yee-Sool, the workaholic main character in Kiss Sixth Sense could definitely benefit from. However, life only gets more stressful for Ye-Sool, who has an unusual ability to see the future with just a kiss, when she accidentally locks lips with her boss whom she hates.

5. Going on cosy museum dates
If you’re a history buff who spends the weekend visiting the Royal Museum or admiring the details of traditional royal costumes at the National Textiles Museum, be sure to stream Bloody Heart on Disney+ Hotstar. The rich storytelling that blends deception, betrayal, and impossible choices in this historical K-drama is complemented by stunning sets and costume design that are sure to leave you hooked.
