All good things must come to an end. Hometown Cha-Cha-Cha’s final two episodes will be airing this weekend. In case you haven’t caught up yet with this healing K-drama series, now is the best time to familiarize yourself with the quirky characters of the coastal village of Gongjin.

While we hope a similar light series will arrive soon to fill the void, there are lots of new K-dramas and thrillers you can watch on various streaming sites.

My Name, a South Korean drama series about revenge between one of South Korea’s largest organized crime syndicates and the police, is already generating social media buzz ahead of its release on Netflix.

The psychological thriller crime drama You is also back for Season 3. The third season sees charming serial killer Joe (Penn Badgley) and Love (Victoria Pedretti) starting a new life with their son in the suburbs and see if that kind of "normal" life is meant for them.

A modern reboot series based on the ’90s slasher film I Know What You Did Last Summer just premiered on Amazon this weekend as well.
