These dramas convey fresh, upbeat, and inspiring stories about what it means to be alive and how one's goals and ambitions change over time.

  1. Start-Up

Korean drama Start Up is about a start-up corporation, as the title suggests. Seo Dal-Mi (Bae Suzy) aspires to be the CEO after being inspired by her late father. Won In-Jae (Kang Han-na) and Seo Dal-mi are sisters who became estranged when their parents divorced and developed a rivalry. Dal mi meets Nam Do-San (Nam Joo-hyuk), the founder of the AI business Samsan Tech, through a childhood experience. The team works on inventing a new AI project under the tutelage of Han Ji-Pyung (Kim Seon-Ho), the team leader, after being accepted into Sandbox's residency program.

  1. Dream High 1 & 2

Dream High 1&2 tells the tale of six Kirin Art High School students who study hard to realize their ambitions of becoming Korean music stars.

In series 1, Go Hye Mi (Bae Suzy) is a classical music major who must give up her passion by enrolling at Kirin Art High School to pay off her father's debt. She must, however, recruit two additional pupils to attend the school to enroll conditionally. The high school falls bankrupt in the second season, and Oz Entertainment takes over the school. The corporation relocates its juvenile idols-in-training to comply with a new rule requiring minor performers to get 20 hours of schooling each week.

In series 2, Shin Hae Sung (Kang So Ra) wants to be a musician, but she only knows how to read music and not how to play it. Jin Yoo Jin (Jung Jin Woon), a former child star, defies school rules and gets into a lot of trouble in his goal to become a hard-core rock star. He also had a fight with JB, a well-known member of the group.

To summarize, Dream High 1 & 2 is a high school drama with a creative twist. Kirin Arts High School is a school for aspiring singers, dancers, and composers; Kirin High's remedial section houses the school's failed pupils. The Dream High series is a hopeful K-drama that asserts that, at the end of the day, if you work hard and persevere, you may achieve your goals.

  1. Itaewon Class

The Itaewon Class Korean drama was one of the top Netflix Korean dramas of 2020 due to its meaningful plot and representation of societal concerns such as racism and gender inequality.

Park Sae-Royi (Park Seo-Joon), the proprietor of DanBam, a bar-restaurant in Itaewon, has set himself the objective of becoming a successful company owner as a part of his vengeance plan against a food conglomerate. The plot revolves around the DanBam team members, who discover the value of teamwork and acceptance of diversity as they work together to develop the company. Because of Jangga Group's CEO and his son, Sae-Royi is expelled from school, loses his father, and ends up as a criminal. These unjust occurrences would be enough to make anybody angry, but Sae-Royi manages to focus his rage on the creation of a bar restaurant. Jo Yi-Seo (Kim Da-Mi), a ruthless and astute businessman, agrees to assist Sae-Royi in expanding his company. The couple, along with the rest of the DanBam team, battles back against Jangga Group and achieves their aim.
