As Kpop, Korean films like Parasite and Minari, and Korean television series sweep the world by storm, the South Korean entertainment sector is steadily expanding to become the most powerful in the world.  

No matter the subject or genre, any fictitious South Korean television series is referred to as a “Kdrama” or “Korean drama.”  

That includes everything from romance to science fiction to horror.  

The majority of these television shows are based on webcomics, a type of South Korean-originated narrative that is akin to comics.  

There are very few K-dramas that have the power to permanently change you. One of those shows is Twenty Five Twenty One, with its captivating cast and moving narrative making for an unstoppable combination.  

Five young friends are followed as they struggle to achieve love, happiness, and success while also adjusting to adulthood against the backdrop of the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis, which threatens to ruin their lives. 

Pachinko, an expansive film adaptation of Min Jin Lee’s 2017 novel, illuminates the complex relationship between Korea and Japan by tracing the lasting journey of a Korean family through one of East Asia’s most turbulent decades.  

Sun-ja, a young Busan lady compelled by a cruel twist of fate to leave her life behind and start over in Osaka, is at the centre of it all .  

Pachinko is a moving story of exile and oppression, but it’s also a story of hope because Sun-ja and her descendants find a sense of belonging in one another. 

The plots of several Korean films this year have been inspired by webcomics, and Business Proposal is no exception.
