We hope you've worked up an appetite, because this week we're bringing you Korean dramas that are all about food! As one of the most cherished and unique aspects of Korean culture, food is at the center of many Korean dramas and movies. So enjoy this week's delectable featured dramas on Viki!
Jewel in the Palace (대장금) is one of the most popular K-Dramas of all time. With the beautiful Lee Young Ae playing the lead role of Jang Geum, this is the story of how a common girl can rise through the levels of Korean society and become the royal chef in the King’s palace. This drama is available to viewers in the US and Canada.
Feast of the Gods (신들의 만찬) is an exciting story about two young women competing for the chance to take their place in the culinary dynasty of Korea. In true K-Drama fashion, the real "heir" to the dynasty was lost as a child, and must later prove her cooking skills against the girl who was adopted in her place. This drama is currently airing in Korea, and episodes will be available to viewers in North and South America about 1-2 hours after they finish airing!
Immortal Classic (불후의 명작) revolves around the iconic dish of Korea, kimchi. One family has kept the secret recipe for the best kimchi safe for hundreds of years, but a small restaurant claims to serve an even better version. Watch this show to find out whose kimchi will prevail in the end! This drama is available worldwide, except in select countries.
