Kdramas are a complete package. Pick any kdrama and it will be cooked up of love, mystery, and thrill in the right amount. Furthermore, most kdramas are just a season long, and the standard number of episodes is sixteen. So over the course of sixteen episodes, you are presented with a well-fletched story. The creators have mastered the art of giving just the right amount of information to keep us guessing what will happen next.

While sometimes it is obvious how the series is going to end, there are some that we just cannot figure out. Not to mention how there are times that you start watching thinking it’s all fluff, and they hit you with a beloved character’s death in between (Cough! cough!! Vincenzo!) Therefore we have compiled a list of happy-ending Kdramas so that you stay smiling from the start to the end.

Kdramas on Netflix with happy endings

Start-Up

There are countless office and high school Kdramas, but the industry saw its first-ever full-fledged start-up Kdrama in 2020. Start-up stars top Hallyu stars such as Bae Suzy (While You Were Sleeping), Nam Joo Hyuk (Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo), Kim Seon Ho (Hometown Cha Cha Cha), and Kang Han Na (My Roommate Is A Gumiho). The plot of the kdrama revolves around a girl named Seo Dal Mi who wants to begin a Start-Up in her father’s footsteps. After discovering that her childhood pen pal, Nam Do San, has started his own company and is a successful entrepreneur, she decides to give it a go. However, it turns out that Nam Do San is not the successful entrepreneur that he pretended to be.

Crash Landing on You

A Kdrama that soared to unprecedented popularity is Crash Landing on You on Netflix.

A very, VERY happy ending, we would like to add, because the pair actually got married in real life as well. Stream this Kdrama on Netflix.

Descendants of the Sun

This Kdrama was the gateway to the Kdrama world for many of us. It has the most intriguing storyline with wonderful strong-minded characters.

Is Josh Brolin’s 2017 Film ‘Only The Brave’ Available on Netflix? Where Can You Stream It?

#Josh #Brolins #Film #Brave #Netflix #Stream

Believe it or not but Josh Brolin was saving lives instead of snapping them out of existence in the 2017 movie Only The Brave. Millennials may only recognize him as Thanos from Avengers or Cable from Deadpool, but beyond the Marvel Cinematic Universe, he isn’t a celestial being trying to erase half of the population. It’s a biographical film that is based on the devastating true story of the Yarnell Hill Fire in 2013. The movie pays homage to the 19 brave men that tried to fight the raging inferno and save their town. But is Only The Brave available on Netflix? Let’s find out. 

What is the movie about? 

Eric Marsh supervises a local type-2 firefighting team in Prescott, Arizona. But he knows very well that his men won’t necessarily be at the forefront if a fire threatens to burn down their entire town. So he pushes his team through rigorous training to become certified Type-2 firefighters. This leads to the birth of the elite Granite Mountain Hotshots. The hotshots get a chance to prove their mettle when a lightning bolt strikes their town near Yarnell. While the wildfire looked controllable at first, Marsh knew how quickly it could get out of hand. And before long, it threatened to consume his entire team and the town of Prescott.

Top Gun director Joseph Kosinski directed the movie based on Sean Flynn’s GQ article, No Exit. It features top-billed actors like Miles Teller, Josh Brolin, Jeff Bridges, Jennifer Connelly, and others.
