What I mean by lighthearted dramas are dramas that are most of the time cheerful and happy. Yes, some of these will have some scenes that are kind of sad but it's rare to find dramas that don't have that. The sad scenes are usually because of a sad outcome from the plotline. These are dramas that I think are really happy and fun to watch. When I think of happy, I think of cute couples and funny scenes. That's what most of these dramas consist of. These dramas all have happy endings, which is another reason they make you feel nice and warm inside. So here's my top 5 list of lighthearted K-Dramas. ENJOY!
5. BEAUTIFUL GONG SHIM
(PLOT) - Gong Shim (Bang Min Ah) was born as a 2nd daughter to a family that always prioritizes their 1st daughter Gong Mi (Seo Hyo Rim), due to her being a successful and beautiful lawyer. As a result, Gong Shim grows into a prickly and skeptical woman with inferiority complex. One day she meets Dan Tae, a quirky public defender with mysterious past. Dan Tae (Nam Goong Min) rents a rooftop apartment which formerly belonged to Gong Shim.
Interesting storyline yet is mostly cheerful throughout the whole drama. Adorable main couple that made me squeal constantly from their cuteness even in the very last scene. I love Nam Goong Min's character so much in this drama and he did amazing. His character was so cute and sweet! It was just really enjoyable and also extremely funny. This is one of the funniest dramas I've seen and I loved it a lot!
4. FLOWER BOY RAMYUN SHOP
(PLOT) - Yang Eun Bi (Lee Chung-ah) is a college student preparing for her civil service exam with the dream of being a high school teacher. She accidentally encounters Cha Chi Soo (Jung Il-woo), the arrogant son of the biggest food conglomerate in Korea. Both of them end up working at a ramyun shop run by the lazy Choi Kang Hyuk (Lee Ki-woo).
I really loved this drama. I got hooked to this drama and it's character's. It was very refreshing and entertaining. This drama is a hit or miss for most people. I for won really loved it a lot and want to watch it again. I miss it because of the main couple. They were so cute and funny. Also this drama has one of my favorite kiss scenes of all time. I loved the funny scenes that were throughout the drama as well.
3. MARRIAGE NOT DATING
(PLOT) - A perfect man, Kong Ki-Tae (Yeon Woo-Jin), is forced to marry by his family, but he doesn't to marry. To make his family give up, he introduces a woman, Joo Jang-Mi (Han Groo), to them that they would never accept.
Now this drama is probably in my top 5 list of favorite dramas of all time. It's a simple storyline yet I love it so much. The main couple has so much chemistry. This drama is extremely funny just like Beautiful Gong Shim. So if you love a good rom-com I definitely recommend these two. Both are really great! I love the ending for this drama a lot, it's a perfect ending that fits the couple just right.
2. SHOPPING KING LOUIE
(PLOT) - A romantic comedy about Louis (Seo In-guk), a rich heir who always spends money to buy everything that has a subtle beauty talking to his soul. One day he loses his memory and meets Bok-Shil (Nam Ji-hyun), a pure and energetic woman from the countryside. She is at first astounded by his spending habits. In the process of teaching him to only buy bare necessities or inexpensive small kindnesses that lighten up one's day; she also learns that bare necessities are not same for everyone as they depend on everyone's own values that shape their life and thus their shopping patterns. Both have innate innocence which bring them to care for each other. Leading to undeniable love.
This is a new drama that just finished airing recently. It's a breath of fresh air and the storyline is fun to watch unravel itself. It has a innocent and sweet main couple that make this drama so lighthearted and cute. Shopping King Louie is also another funny drama, some scenes I just laughed for no reason.
1. MY UNFORTUNATE BOYFRIEND
(PLOT) - A love story between Yoon Tae Woon (No Min-woo) who believes in living truthfully, and Yoo Ji Na (Yang Jin-sung) who will do whatever it takes to succeed at her corporate job, including lying when necessary. They end up changing each other while finding love.
So my #1 favorite lighthearted and happy drama is My Unfortunate Boyfriend. Not many people talk about this one or have even heard of it which saddens me because I think it's such a cute and funny drama. Also the ost's are amazing. The reason I think this drama was so adorable was because of No Min-woo's character in it. Most of his other roles are more serious but his character in this drama is lovable, innocent and cute. I just want a boyfriend like his character. I really like the plot although it's very simplistic, it's cute. This drama is the most cheerful and cutest drama I've seen. I think it's also another hit or miss drama like Flower Boy Ramyun Shop. But I love both of them. I have so many dramas I want to rewatch but I need to watch others first.
There are my top 5 lighthearted k-dramas that I've seen that I think are enjoyable, happy and cute! I would also like to mention "She Was Pretty" was also pretty lighthearted but I couldn't put it in my list so I decided to add it as an honorable mention. It's another Rom-Com. The gif above is from "She Was Pretty". It was a cute and funny drama!
Have you seen any of the dramas on my list? What's the most lighthearted drama or dramas you've seen?
