Before we get started let me just tell you that Korean Dramas are the best thing that have ever happened to me!! They're crazy addictive and entertaining!! Prepare yourself for a new way of life, you'll be an expert before you know it!!
First up is the classic Coffee Prince. This drama has so much heart and soul. The cast did an amazing job at making us feel all their raw emotions. It's a beautiful love story between a man and a woman who pretends to be a man to keep her job. The lead actress plays the role of a strong independent woman who is willing to do anything to support her family. With a lot of dramas finding a strong leading lady is hard to come by so that is why this will always be a gem for me. It's funny, emotional, and oh so cute!!! The best feature of this drama has to be the leading actor, Gong Yoo. You will fall in love with him by the end of this drama and his face is just an added bonus haha. So much eye candy!!
Up next is The Master's Sun. Even if you're not a fan of the supernatural this drama will make you see the genre in a new light. The lead actress, Gong Hyo-Jin, is one of most popular leads in Korean Dramas. She's amazing in anything she does and she's also one of my personal favorites. The story is about a woman who can see ghosts and is haunted by them until she finds a man who is makes them disappear every time she touches him. The story is a different take on the very cliche "Chaebol meets poor girl and falls in love" plot. They actively discuss and object to being a cliche throughout the drama and it somewhat becomes a running joke. The leads have amazing chemistry and learn to work and love together. This is a definite watch!
Last but not least is the story about a bunch of teenage friends growing up and struggling through life together. This drama did an awesome job at depicting how it feels to grow up. You'll find yourself laughing and crying along the way as you watch them go through the many teenage emotions we've all felt before. It's full of nostalgia and it makes you want to really evaluate your life lol. The cast is amazing and you'll have so much fun watching this that time will just fly by.
Well those are my top 3 and I feel like they're all kind of different enough for you to find your own groove and taste. All 3 are definitely worth watching and will have you hooked ridiculously fast. Hope this helped a couple of newbies and I welcome you to the KDrama (marathon) club. You'll soon be looking like the picture above because seriously, one episode is NEVER enough!! Thank you @kpopandkimchi for this awesome idea!!
