1. Hello Monster/ I remember you
Hello Monster also named ‘As I remember you‘ is a mystery crime thriller where the main lead comes across a psychopath who is very much involved in his past. Watch the duo of Seo In-guk and Park Bo-gum and a wonderful cameo by Kyungoo (D.O of EXO) . This drama is a personal favourite and I guarantee satisfaction.

Rugal is a crime thriller for people who love science fiction. It’s a story of a team of bionic soldiers trying to fight against a criminal organization and their own demons. The drama has some really good CGI and the villain is one of my personal favourites. It’s a Choi Jin-hyuk starrer drama and is available on Netflix, definitely worth watching if you’re a lover of action.
3. Remember : War of the son.
Our main lead has a special condition called hyperthymesia which allows him to remember almost every day in perfect detail. When his father was wrongfully convicted of murder, Jin-woo vows to prove the innocence of his father. He then becomes a lawyer to put the real criminal behind bars. It’s a legal drama with mystery, thriller, and crime garnished on it. Yo Seung Ho as the main lead makes you sure about the drama’s credibility so go for it blindly and you’ll love it.
Even though the main genre of the K-drama comes under horror, suspense and thriller are indeed its part. Imagine if a zombie apocalypse happened but in Joseon era? How would the era devoid of technology deal with it? The internal politics of the palace while the whole Joseon is suffering and the King’s effort to make things right is worth watching! Kingdom is short but a nerve-racking ride you would wanna ride on.
5. Tell Me What You Saw
Tell Me What You Saw is the exact definition of suspense and thriller. Oh Hyun-jae (Jang Hyuk) was once highly regarded as a criminal profiler known for solving uncrackable cold cases. His world shattered when his fiancée is killed in an explosion set by a serial killer. After a while, a new killer emerges with the same MO and this professional who had dropped everything in grief picks his sword again to enter the battlefield. He and Cha Soo-young (Choi Soo-young), a detective with a photographic memory he ends up meeting try to seek retribution for his fiancée and stop the killer.
