This list will be my personal opinion. There is a good amount of mystery, thriller, romance dramas that I haven't seen and some of the ones that I have seen I think belong on other lists. That being said I hope you enjoy my top 5 best thriller, mystery, romance Asian drama list. BTW all of these dramas are Kdramas except for one that's why I titled this card with Asian dramas not just kdramas.

5. I Remember You

PLOT (Source: Wiki) - Genius profiler Lee Hyun (Seo In-guk), returns home to Korea after something from a case he’s been sent triggers a memory he thought he’d lost forever. Unbeknownst to him, one of his team members, Detective Cha Ji-an (Jang Na-ra), has been investigating him for some time. She is aware that his father was murdered and his brother disappeared under mysterious circumstances involving a criminal named Lee Joon Young (Choi Won-young) -- whom they both want found and incarcerated. Each seeks to unravel the other, unaware that they’ve been drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse by a master player and that both truth and evil are closer and far more twisted than they think. Why? Thrilling, some chemistry between the main couple. What I really love about this drama is the cast list. This was the first drama I saw Park Bo-Gum in and I fell in love with him and his acting right away! I already loved Seo In-guk, he was the main reason I watched it and he is so handsome in this. The bromance is strong in this drama. The backstory is really intriguing, plus Kyungsoo (D.O.) is in it which is always fun, he did amazing as the bad guy!

4. When A Snail Falls In Love (Chinese Drama)

PLOT (Source: Wiki) - Ji Bai (Wang Kai) is a stone-faced team leader of the Violent Crime Unit. Xu Xu (Wang Zi Wen) is a new intern specializing in offender profiling. Tasked with solving a series of crimes that are somehow mysteriously connected, the two develop feelings for each other. Xu Xu draws comic panels of their relationship, portraying herself as a snail and Ji as a lion. Why? I just finished this one if you saw the review card that I made, you would understand that I really enjoyed this one. I haven't seen many C-Dramas mostly because I have a hard time getting into them because of the voice overs, it's cringy for me but thankfully this one wasn't voiced over. It had a good storyline, fun characters, very intense and thrilling crimes. It's definitely a fun ride and I highly recommend!

3. The Girl Who Sees Smells

PLOT (Source: Dramawiki) - Three years ago, Choi Moo Gak (Park Yoo-chun) lost his younger sister in the "Bar Code" murder case. Since then he has become cold and insensible. Meanwhile, Oh Cho Rim (Shin Se-kyung) miraculously survived the same incident. Since then she has lost her memory, but also gained the ability to see smells. Why? This is one drama that always comes to mind when I think of thrillers because it's such a thrill to watch! I loved this drama a lot, I really like Yoo-chun and find him adorable so I had to watch this and I wasn't disappointed if anything. I love him more now! It has good chemistry between the main leads, I wouldn't say amazing but good. It has such an interesting storyline and it's one of the main reasons I wanted to watch. It was so entertaining, funny, cute and of course the mystery is what kept me. I applaud Nam Goong Min, he is so talented!

2. W - Two Worlds

PLOT (Source: Wiki) - Cardiothoracic surgeon Oh Yeon-joo's (Han Hyo-joo) father mysteriously went missing while writing the last chapter of his webtoon "W". Yeon-joo goes to his office and is shocked to see a scene of the dying Kang Cheol (Lee Jong-suk), the main character of W, on her father's computer. While reading a note left behind by her father, a hand from the monitor pulled her in. She finds herself on the rooftop of a building next to a bleeding man. She manages to save him and realizes that the person she saved was Kang Cheol. She then found out that she can only leave the webtoon based on Kang Cheol's change in feelings. When that happens, the words 'to be continued' will appear and she will teleport back to the real world. Why? I was debating whether to put this at #1 but in my heart I just couldn't do it because the #1 I ended up choosing has so many other points that I love about it. But I'll just talk about W for a minute. I really love this drama. One because of Jong-suk, he's my baby. He's so adorable, his character is so different in this from any other character he's ever played. He usually plays the adorable, sweet guy or high school kid. But he's so confident and brave in this. It's weird yet attractive. He's is so manly! O.O The main couple had undeniable chemistry which didn't surprise me because Jong-suk makes chemistry with everyone he works with even Park Shin-hye and she's a tough cookie to crack. That's why Pinocchio is my fav! The story is what really sold me, it is so unique and different. The art is beautiful and fun to watch. The thought of there being two worlds. One world being inside a story and our world, the reality. It's crazy and brilliant. It's so amazing! This drama is also extremely thrilling and romantic!!! Please watch if you haven't!

1. Kill Me, Heal Me

PLOT (Source Wiki) - The human body is capable of all sorts of things to survive difficult situations. Cha Do Hyun (Ji Sung) is a third-generation business heir who developed dissociative identity disorder (previously known as multiple personality disorder) in the aftermath of several life-threatening traumatic events. He tries to regain control over his life with the help of Oh Ri Jin (Hwang Jung-eum), a first-year psychiatric resident who helps him secretly. But Ri Jin’s twin brother, Oh Ri On (Park Seo-joon), is a writer who is determined to uncover the unscrupulous lives of the rich and starts following Do Hyun around. Can Do Hyun take control over his condition before one of his seven personalities takes control over him instead? Why is Kill Me, Heal Me #1? For starters Kill Me, Heal Me is one of my favorite drama, it's in my top 10 list somewhere. I have so many reasons as to why it's number 1 on this list. I think it beats W because of it's soundtrack. One of the main reasons I love Kill Me, Heal Me so much is because of the song Auditory Hallucinations. It's one of my all time favorite ost's. It's amazing! Amazing cast! I'm a huge comedy fan and this drama has a ton of it that just makes me laugh so hard. There was definitely chemistry between Ji Sung and Hwang Jung-Eum. I love the 7 different personalities concept, it's interesting and leaves room for a lot of fun things to happen. What I really loved was the mystery behind both of the main leads pasts. Once I found out their past, the story is just so good! There was of course some cute scenes. It is so suspenseful and intriguing but I loved every minute of it. Plus Shin Se-gi is super hot! XD
