Main Cast:

  • Han Hyo-joo as Yoon Sae-bom

Happiness hits close to home as the drama draws parallels between a fictional zombie virus and the very real Covid-19 pandemic, which has forced us to distance and isolate ourselves for the past two years.

Set against the backdrop of a post-Covid world, Happiness follows the residents of an apartment compound as a new infectious disease begins to spread and trouble the society. In order to keep themselves safe, the residents confine themselves to their apartments. 

However, the outbreak turns out to be more alarming than the people had initially thought – those infected can no longer function as normal human beings. Instead, they turn into zombie-like creatures that put others in danger.

Yoon Sae-bom is part of a counter-terrorist team also known as the Special Operations Unit, while her friend, Jung Yi-hyun, works as a detective. They work closely to investigate the cause of the outbreak in hopes of bringing the chaos to an end.

Following the success of season one in 2020, The Penthouse: War in Life returned with two more seasons in 2021.

The Penthouse: War in Life is the epitome of a makjang drama – exaggerated dramas that follow an absurd plot. With over-the-top makjang tropes such as murders, split personalities, and babies swapped at birth, this drama is not an easy watch for the faint-hearted.

Set in a luxurious apartment called Hera Palace, the drama revolves around three mothers who know no bounds when it comes to giving the best life to their children. They are even willing to commit crimes as long as their children become the pick of the litter.

11. Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce)


Best Korean dramas 2021 - Love (ft. Marriage and Divorce)
Image credit: TV CHOSUN

Main Cast:

  • Sung Hoon as Pan Sa-hyun
  • Lee Ga-ryeong as Boo Hye-ryung
  • Lee Tae-gon as Shin Yu-shin
  • Park Joo-mi as Sa Pi-young
  • Jeon Soo-kyung as Lee Shi-eun
  • Jeon Noh-min as Park Hae-ryun

Marriage is incompatible with affairs, but we can’t deny that the plot becomes stimulating when these two intertwine. Love (ft. Marriage & Divorce) is an intense drama centred on three married couples, and it follows a series of extramarital affairs that occurs in each marriage.

On the surface, these married couples appear to have smooth sailing lives with successful careers and happy marriages – Pan Sa-hyun is a lawyer, Boo Hye-ryung is a DJ, Shin Yu-shin is a psychiatrist, Sa Pi-young is a radio show producer, Lee Shi-eun is a writer, and Park Hae-ryun is a professor.

However, their lives are far from perfect, and like most makjang dramas, this drama will make you question your moral compass. 

If you enjoyed The Penthouse: War in Life or are a fan of makjang dramas, we recommend watching this drama as well. 

There are two seasons of Love (ft. Marriage & Divorce), both of which were released in 2021.
