The Heirs streamed back in 2015 and is still by far one of the most popular Korean shows out there. So if you loved it, just as much as you loved Boys Over Flowers, here is a list of more high school dramas that you can’t miss.

This is the first show in the Reply series and is filled with K-Pop references at a high-school reunion. So if you’re somebody who loves the genre, then get ready for some nostalgia. 


2. Love Alarm

This 2019 Netflix show is set in a high school where an app shows you if a person near you, likes you – ringing a love alarm in the process. Cute, funny and a must-watch for those who love angst.
