Orange Marmalade (Hangul: 오렌지 마말레이드; RR: Orenji Mamalleideu) is a 2015 South Korean television series based on the webtoon of the same name which was serialized on Naver Webtoon from 2011 to 2013.

Set in a fantasy world where humans and vampires coexist, the latter have evolved and no longer rely on human blood as food. Still, they are feared and discriminated by society, causing many of them to hide their true nature and live as "normal" citizens, or else become outcasts.
Baek Ma-ri (Kim Seolhyun) is a socially withdrawn teenage girl hiding her vampire identity. Driven away from several neighborhoods, she is eager to settle down in her new city and live quietly.
