( If, like us, you've spent your entire weekends (or even many late nights) binge-watching on Netflix, then you're probably rapidly running out of things to watch. Luckily for you, the streaming site has plenty of hidden gemsincluding one that will be perfect for the K-Drama addict in you.



Stranger is an edge-of-your-seat crime thriller revolving around Hwang Si-mok (Jo Seong-Woo), the only honest prosecutor in an office full of corrupt government officials. He teams up with a passionate police lieutenant (Bae Doo-na) to investigate a mysterious crime scene in the city. Together, they find themselves caught in a web of corruption and murder where everyone is a suspect.


If you're an avid movie or TV fan, you'll likely recognize Doo-na, as she's also starred in Netflix's original series, Sense8. Her impressive resume also includes celebrated Korean auteur Park Chan-wook's Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance (2002), Bong Joon-ho's The Host (2006), and Hollywood sci-fi film Cloud Atlas (2012).

Stranger is still currently airing in Korea's tvN and new episodes are uploaded on Netflix every Saturday.
