Stars: Bae Suzy (Seo Dal-mi), Nam Joo-hyuk (Nam Do-san), Nam Joo-hyuk (Nam Do-san)
The Philippines went wild when this gem of a Korean Drama first aired on Netflix. Of course, there was the ongoing debate of Good Boy or Han Ji-pyeong vs. Nam Do-san, but hearts were definitely moved whenever Choi Won-deok, everyone’s tv grandma, went on-screen. Start-Up revolves around aspiring techies’ lost dreams, new adventures, healing, and of course, family. The story is very smartly-written and engaging. It’s not too late to watch it if you haven’t!
