While it's common to see America remake Asian dramas, it's quite rare to see Asia remake American dramas. In the past few years, we've been treated to some South Korean interpretations of popular American TV shows. Here are the ones you should check out!

1. The Good Wife: A woman returns to her law career after her husband is caught in a political scandal. 

2. Entourage: It covers the lives of five friends navigating the Korean entertainment industry. Just like its American counterpart, it was filled with cameos from many within the industry. 

3. Criminal Minds: The Korean show was a condensed version of season 1 as it explored the lives of law enforcement who caught criminals using behavioral profiling. 

4. Suits: Technically, this is still in production and is scheduled to air in 2018 but it will star Jang Dong-gun and Park Hyung-sik about life at a law firm.
