About Korean Serials

Korean dramas or Korean Serials (RR: hanguk drama), or K-dramas, are television series (RR: deurama) in Korean language, made in South Korea.

Korean dramas are popular worldwide, partially due to the spread of Korean popular culture (the “Korean Wave”), and are available through streaming services that offer multiple language subtitles. They have received adaptations throughout the world, and have had an impact on other countries. Some of the most famous dramas have been broadcast via traditional television channels; for example, Dae Jang Geum (2003) which was sold to 91 countries.

South Korea started to broadcast television series in the 1960s. In the 1990s traditional historical series transformed into the present miniseries format, creating the notion of fusion sageuks.

One director usually helms Korean dramas and is written by one screenwriter, thus having a distinct directing style and language, unlike American television series, where often several directors and writers work together.Series set in contemporary times usually run for one season, for 12−24 episodes of 60 minutes each. Historical series may be longer, with 50 to 200 episodes, but they also run for only one season. Korean Serials online on Zdramas.com

The broadcast time for dramas is 22:00 to 23:00, with episodes on two consecutive nights: Mondays and Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, and weekends. Different dramas appear on each of the nationwide networks, Seoul Broadcasting System (SBS), Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), Munhwa Broadcasting Corporation (MBC) and on the cable channels, Joongang Tongyang Broadcasting Company (jTBC), Channel A, tvN, and Orion Cinema Network (OCN).

Sageuk

Sageuk refers to any Korean television or film drama that is either based on historical figures, incorporates historical events, or uses a historical backdrop. While technically the word sageuk literally translates to “historical drama”, the term is typically reserved for dramas taking place during Korean history. Watch korean serials on Zdramas.com online

Since the mid-2000s sageuks have achieved major success outside of Korea. Sageuks including Dae Jang Geum (a.k.a. Jewel in the Palace), Yi San and Jumong enjoyed strong ratings and high satisfaction ratings in countries such Vietnam, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Fiji and Iran. Jumong, which aired on IRIB (Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting) in 2008, had 85% viewership.
