Korean dramas (Korean: 한국 드라마; RR: Han-guk deurama), more popularly known as K-dramas, refer to television series in the Korean language that are made in South Korea.

They are popular worldwide, especially in Asia, partially due to the spread of Korean popular culture (the "Korean Wave") and their widespread availability via streaming services, which often offer subtitles in multiple languages. Many K-dramas have been translated internationally, and some of them have had a significant influence in other nations. In other countries, traditional television channels have broadcast some of the most well-known dramas. For example, Dae Jang Geum (2003) was sold in 150 countries.[1]

Korean dramas have attracted international attention for their fashion, style, and culture. Their rise in popularity has led to a great boost to fashion lines.
