“With only days before his major league baseball debut, pitcher Kim Je-hyeok unexpectedly lands himself behind bars. He must learn to navigate his new world with its own rules if he wants to survive”
Prison Playbook (2017-2018) is one of the highest-rated Korean dramas in 2017, but in terms of popularity, it pales into insignificance compared to Reply 1988. The two theaters were directed by the same PD, so his signature directorial style is apparent in both works.
The drama follows the everyday prison life of a star baseball player, played by Park Hae-soo, who ends up in jail after attacking a man who tried to sexually assault his sister.

2. Chicago Typewriter

If you’re looking for an underrated drama right now, Chicago Typewriter (2017) is a choice you won’t regret making.
It tells the story of three independence fighters who lived during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the 1930s and are reincarnated into the present time as a famous writer in a career slump, a ghostwriter, and a veterinarian—
played by Yoo Ah-in, Go Kyung-Pyo (Cross), and Im Soo-Jung
I watched this almost three years ago, so I couldn’t precisely remember what transpired in the story but trust me, it’s a great drama (numerous comments online also say it’s one of the best of 2017).
And as always, Yoo Ah-in gave a fantastic portrayal of his character
3.Because This Is My First Life

I went into this drama without expectations since I’m not a fan of both leads and the writer. But the first episode blew me away,
so I ended up loving the show to pieces. Starring Lee Min-ki (The Lies Within) and Jung So-min (Hundred Million Stars From the Sky),
Because This Is My First Life (2017) revolves around two thirty-something individuals who end up living together in one house and getting married for financial convenience.
What started as a simple symbiotic relationship between the two becomes complicated when they begin to have feelings for each other.
4. That Winter, The Wind Blows
|That Winter, The Wind Blows (Romantic Melodrama)
I couldn’t believe a love story involving a blind person could be successfully told on screen for 16 hours, but That Winter, The Wind Blows (2013) happened.
Song Hye-Kyo (Encounter) took on the role of a visually impaired heiress who lives alone in her mansion after her parents got divorced when she was a child. She also got separated from her elder brother named Oh Soo and didn’t hear from him for a long time.
When she decides to find and meet him, she ends up crossing paths with another man also named Oh Soo, played by Ju In-sung (Dear My Friends). A high-stakes gambler, this man ends up pretending to be the real Oh Soo for the sake of the money.
I can’t drop spoilers here, so watch the show to find out what happens next when they fall for each other. The series was penned by award-winning screenwriter No Hee-Kyung, who also wrote Live, Dear My Friends, and It’s Okay That’s Love.
5.Tomorrow With You

One day, after foreseeing that he will die soon, he decides to marry an amateur photographer, portrayed by Shin Min-ah (Chief Of Staff 2), thinking it’s the only way to save himself.
