Amidst the influx of romance genres, Kim Tae Ri’s occult drama “Revenant” steals the show. It has the perfect formula of horror, gore and occult that heightens the intrigue among the public.
While waiting for the new episodes of the SBS TV drama, here are some scarier works that you might want to check out from Kim Dong Wook’s “The Guest” to Hwang Jung Min’s “The Wailing.”
OCN released the spine-chilling drama “The Guest” in 2018 starring Kim Dong Wook, Jung Eun Chae, Kim Jae Wook and more.
The series depicts the lives of a shaman, a priest and a detective who work together to find answers to the crimes committed by bizarre entities.

In the series, the three didn’t only find difficulties in hunting down the supernatural forces but also discovered conflicts among themselves as they navigate their way to the unknown world.
In 2020, Jung Ji So’s Baek So Jin learns about her ability to bring death by using names and photos in “The Cursed.” Unbeknownst to many, she’s a girl who was deemed a perfect vessel by an evil entity.
When a conglomerate chairman gets possessed by an unknown force, a reporter works with Baek So Jin to fight the spirit while also revealing the corruption made inside the multi-billionaire empire.
The drama, which is also known as “The Cursed: Dead Man’s Prey,” also stars Sung Dong Il, Uhm Ji Won and Jo Min Su.
Another OCN drama makes it to the list. The 2019 series “Priest” was headlined by seasoned stars Yeon Woo Jin, Jung Yu Mi and Park Yong Woo.
In the series, a dutiful priest and a group of doctors and exorcists team up to protect a Catholic hospital in Seoul from evil entities that look for bodies to possess.
The drama received little acclaim in 2019 due to the rise of romance works in the global scene. Now that the horror genre is once again in trend, thousands of viewers stream the work again.
“The Wailing,” released in 2016, stars Kwak Do Won, Hwang Jung Min and Chun Woo Hee. It centers on a police officer who looks for his missing daughter.
As he investigates in a remote village, he witnesses a series of unknown deaths and illnesses that opens his eyes to a more serious and supernatural force that he’s not ready to take on yet.
The work attracted almost 7 million viewers during its release. It even received high praises at the 53rd Baeksang Arts Awards in 2017.
