What K-Dramas Can I Watch While Traveling on a Plane?

You’ve booked your flight, your bags are packed and now you just have to decide what you are going to do during that long flight.

When it comes to traveling, long flights can make things really rough. Even after flicking around the airline’s entertainment catalogs, walking up and down the aisle (when you are allowed to) and sleeping, you’ll find that there are still hours left before you reach your destination. And, you can’t even expect to chit-chat with your seat neighbors as, most of the time, they are not so friendly – an addition to all the other frustrations that occur during long flights.

The only way you can survive a long-haul flight without being traumatized for life is by keeping your mind and eyes occupied with movies and TV shows. And, if you are a K-drama watcher, here’s a list of some of the best K-dramas you can watch while on a plane.

Welcome to Waikiki

Welcome to WaikikiKorean dramas are mostly a fusion of romance and comedy, but romance is reverently on the dominant side. However, there are some pure comedy K-dramas, where romance takes a back seat and comic elements drive the shows. So, if you want to kill the boredom of being on a long flight by watching a really funny drama, make sure you choose “Welcome to Waikiki” – none of the other comedy dramas match this one and I mean it.

“Welcome to Waikiki” is a 2018 youth South Korean television series starring Lee Yi-Kyung, Kim Jung-Hyun, Song Seung-Won, Jung In-Sun and Moon Ga-Young. The story centers on three different young men –one who dreams of becoming a film director, one who is a freelance writer and the last, but not least, one who is a minor actor – who run a guest house in Itaewon, South Korea. However, their guesthouse is facing bankruptcy and just when things don’t seem to go their way, more complications spark when their guesthouse is visited, if not crashed, by a single mother and her baby.

This is one of the cutest and funniest K-dramas I’ve ever seen in my life and is light-hearted all the way through. This comedy-drama also thrives on the bromance part, so you have to expect loud laughter moments.


VagabondAlthough cable dramas tend to be better than public broadcasted dramas, “Vagabond” started with ten percent ratings which are extremely high for a public broadcaster drama. In other words, this 2019 thriller drama is worth your time.

With Lee Seung-Gi and Bae Suzy, “Vagabond” is the intriguing story of a stunt man who gets entangled in a political mess as he tries to expose national corruption and get justice for the death of his nephew. The show is full of action and you’ll definitely be bombarded with lots of shocking plot twists. The script is well-written, the plot is compelling and the actors did justice to their roles. So, if you are a fan of action shows with a lot of chases and stunts or if you are a fan of the amazingly hot-and-sexy Lee Seung-Gi, you will probably love this.

The Guest

The GuestThe horror feels that you get when watching this 2018 drama is commendable.

It’s a fact that East Asians like Koreans and Japanese make gruesome horror flicks but OCN’S “The Guest” is one of the best horror and thrilling television series I know. The show focuses on a psychic, a detective and a Catholic priest as they fight against a demon called “Son.”

Not a single flaw can be spotted in this K-drama and it’s a given that you’ll be hooked up in the first episode itself. So, if you have a lion’s heart and are willing to watch some gruesome horror on the place, “The Guest” is your best option.
