5 Creepy Korean Dramas to Get in the Mood for Halloween

Halloween Korean Dramas - White Christmas, Scholar Who Walks the Night, Village: Secret of Achiara

With Halloween coming up soon, the month of October is the perfect time to enjoy some spooky and scary Korean dramas.  To help set the mood, here are 5 kdramas that actually have a scarier theme running throughout the entire drama:

Let’s Fight Ghost

Let's Fight Ghost Korean Drama - Taecyeon and Kim So Hyun

Let’s Fight Ghost (also known as Bring It On Ghost) is about a high school student (Kim So Hyun) who is a ghost trying to find out how she died.  She encounters a guy (Taecyeon) who is an exorcist and can see ghosts.  The two work together to solve the mystery of her death as they battle bad ghosts and help good ghosts cross over to the afterlife while they fall in love with each other.

While Let’s Fight Ghost has plenty of comedy and light-hearted moments, it is full of scary ghosts and creepy situations. With an evil villain running around causing trouble, our main duo always has to be on their toes. Let’s Fight Ghost is the perfect addition to any Halloween drama marathon.

Village: Secret of Achiara

The Village: Secret of Achiara Korean Drama - Moon Geun Young

Village: Secret of Achiara is about a quiet village that is turned upside down when a mysterious corpse is discovered.  Secrets abound in the small town of Achiara, and it seems that everyone is suspect. Can a young woman (Moon Geun Young) new to town find out who the murderer is?

Who doesn’t love a good murder mystery around Halloween? Well, Village: Secret of Achiara is exactly that. The tone is tense and eerie throughout as we go on a suspenseful journey to find out who the murderer is.

White Christmas

White Christmas Korean Drama - Baek Sung Hyun, Kim Young Kwang, Kim Woo Bin, Sung Joon, Lee Som, Hong Jong Hyun, Kwak Jung Wook, Lee Soo Hyuk

White Christmas is a psychological suspense drama about a group of eight students and their teacher who are the only ones left at their prestigious school located deep in the mountains during Christmas break when a snowstorm cuts them off from civilization. After all of the students receive a cryptic letter, they soon learn there may me a murderer among them. Trust within the group quickly deteriorates as everyone finds themselves fighting for their lives.

With only eight episodes, White Christmas is perfect for a Halloween marathon. It’s full of suspense and sure to keep you guessing who to trust and who is willing to kill in this fight for survival. (White Christmas Review)

Scholar Who Walks the Night

Scholar Who Walks the Night Korean Drama - Lee Joon Gi

Scholar Who Walks the Night is a fantasy historical about a scholar named Kim Sung Yeol (Lee Joon Gi) who becomes involved with a plot to take down the evil vampire Gwi (Lee Soo Hyuk) that results in Sung Yeol becoming a vampire himself.  He dedicates his life over the next 120 years to finding a way to destroy Gwi.

Nothing says Halloween like a good vampire story. And Lee Joon Gi is the perfect tortured vampire. This tale of good verses evil has plenty of vampire action to go along with a vampire/human romance. (Scholar Who Walks the Night Review)

Master’s Sun


Master’s Sun is a dark romantic comedy about a selfish CEO (So Ji Sub) and a woman (Gong Hyo Jin) that can see ghosts who work together to heal the man’s traumatic past and help her deal with all of the scary ghosts in her life.

To round out our list, Master’s Sun brings back more ghost action with some creepy spirits that may just make you jump right along with our poor ghost-seeing heroine.
