6. Moonlight Drawn By Clouds (Source: DramaWiki)
Hong Ra On (Kim Yoo Jung), disguises herself as a man and counsels men on dating. Due to a love letter she wrote for a client, she meets Lee Yeong---future Crown Prince Hyomyeong (Park Bo Gum). Hong Ra On is unaware that he is the Crown Prince and Lee Yeong is unaware that Hong Ra On is a woman. The Crown Prince becomes interested in Hong Ra On. His eunuchs become aware of this and attempt to get Hong Ra On to become one of them.
I enjoyed this drama! It was entertaining which historical dramas need to be or else they won't keep the attention of the viewers unless they are into history. But I for one am not very fond of history. I prefer the action when it comes to historical dramas. This was a cute drama and had it's funny moments. It was definitely a fun ride with some emotional moments. I applaud both Bo-Gum and Yoo Jung on their acting, they did amazing plus they had good chemistry together. Good plot, I love the Crown Prince's body guard. He's so hot and I quickly fell in love with him. He was definitely my favorite character. <3 Bo-Gum is cute too!
5. To The Beautiful You (Source: DramaWiki)
The series centers on Goo Jae Hee (Choi Sulli), a Korean girl who lives in the United States. One day, she sees a track and field competition on TV, and becomes attracted to one of the high jump competitors, Kang Tae Joon (Choi Min Ho). She begins to idolize the young athlete and eventually transfers to Korea to attend the same school that Tae Joon attends after he suffers an accident that could potentially end his career. There is a catch, however: Tae Joon attends an all-boys high school and Jae Hee must disguise herself as a boy to enter.
Fun story! Other than the female lead trying to look like a male and completely failing. That was my only problem with this drama. I'm so happy that the 2nd male lead was the first to give me 2nd lead syndrome. He's so kind, cute and funny. I couldn't help but love him although I still loved Choi Min Ho's character too. I was all confused on who I wanted her to end up with. But I was happy with whoever she ended up with. Good plot, so funny and good cast. Great soundtrack! This drama is a hit or miss for most people. So give it a try and if you don't like it after the first episode then don't watch but if you do then continue it.
4. Bromance (Source: DramaWiki)
One day, Pi Ya Nuo (Megan Lai) rescued mob boss Du Zi Feng (Baron Chen) and his sister from danger, not knowing her action would cause her secret life to be exposed. She never had any close friend because no one must discover that she is a woman living as a man until her 26th birthday or, according to the fortune teller, bad things would happen. However, one thing leads to another, she and Du Zi Feng become sworn brothers. With him bend on knowing everything about her, can she make it until her 26th birthday? How would he react when he discovers her big secret?
Bromance got my attention really quick. It was an entertaining and fun drama to watch and I loved it a lot! The cast was so fun, my favorite characters were the female lead and her cousin. They were hilarious. Megan did an amazing job playing a male. Although I could still tell she was a girl. Whenever she smiled for example, that's what gave it away for me. But her actions were manly and she was attractive as both a male and female. I love when her cousin dressed her up as a woman to show her how attractive she can be and she was surprised and excited. The chemistry was really good between the main leads. It had a simply plotline but it was still really good! Also it's a Taiwanese drama, so if you like Taiwanese dramas and romance then maybe you should try this one. It's really funny and cute!
3. You're Beautiful (Source: DramaWiki)
The management company of the popular idol group A.N.JELL decided to add a new member to the group. Go Mi Nam (Park Shin Hye), the new member, has to go to the U.S. due to an urgent emergency having to have an eye job. His twin sister, Go Mi Nyu (Park Shin Hye), is a soon to be nun that is in training ends up having to take her brother's place and pretend to be a boy until Mi Nam comes back from the U.S. During the time period she pretends to be Mi Nam, she unexpectedly begins to fall in love with the leader of A.N.JELL, Hwang Tae Kyung. Hwang Tae Kyung (Jang Geun Suk), is the leader of the popular idol group, he's a cold hearted, straight forward, clean freak that has lived his life alone after being abandoned by his own mother until he got into A.N.JELL. When he found out about Mi Nyu being a girl, he agrees to help and keep her identity a secret from everyone else. Will Go Mi Nyu be able to keep her identity hidden from everyone else until her twin brother comes back?
This is a classic drama. My favorite character was of course Jeremy and I know many others loved him too because he's a likable and fun character. The music is alright, to be honest I don't really listen to any of the songs from this drama. But I loved the story of the drama more than the music because I'm a big gender-bender fan. Plus I love both Geun-suk and Shin-hye. This had it's cute and funny moments as well. I really loved this drama and the cast was great!
2. Secret Garden (Source: DramaWiki)
The drama tells the story of Kim Joo Won (Hyun Bin), an arrogant and eccentric CEO who maintains the image of seeming perfection, and Gil Ra Im (Ha Ji Won), a poor and humble stuntwoman whose beauty and body are the object of envy amongst top actresses. Their accidental meeting, when Joo Won mistakes Ra Im for actress Park Chae Rin, marks the beginning of a tense, bickering relationship, through which Joo Won tries to hide a growing attraction to Ra Im that both confuses and disturbs him. To complicate matters further, a strange sequence of events results in them swapping bodies.
Ha Ji-won and Hyun-bin have SO MUCH CHEMISTRY!!! Anyone that has watched "Secret Garden" knows it. Not only is the chemistry great so is the plot, it's interesting and highly entertaining. It has great comedic scenes, amazing cast even Lee Jong-suk is in it. I'm a big Jong-suk fan that's why I was happy when he was in it. There are so many memorable scenes that still get parodies today like the foam kiss and the sit-ups scene. Just so many classics. The fact that both of them switch bodies is funny enough but the great scenes with it makes it so much better. I just really love this drama. I love Hyun-bin as the male lead, I'm a dimple lover. So I swoon when I see Hyun-bin and his beautiful dimples. Also Ha Ji-won is so pretty! They make a gorgeous pair. Secret Garden is a really great drama and a classic to any drama lover.
1. Coffee Prince (Source: DramaWiki)
The life of Go Eun Chan (Yoon Eun-Hye) is not easy; she works many jobs to pay off debts and even gave up her feminine image. Choi Han Kyul (Gong Yoo) is the heir of a big food company, but his grandmother wants him to settle down, so she arranged many dates for him. After Eun Chan bumped into Han Kyul and was mistaken for a boy, Han Kyul decided to hire Eun Chan to be his gay lover in order to avoid the arranged dates. Desperately in need of money, Eun Chan had no choice but to accept. Han Kyul's grandmother also made Han Kyul in charge of a filthy coffee shop in danger of being bankrupt. Eun Chan begged to work at the coffee shop, and not long after, feelings start to spark, except, how would Han Kyul accept his "homosexuality"?
I absolutely love Coffee Prince! It has so many reasons to be my #1 favorite gender bender drama. Coffee Prince is definitely in my top 10 list of favorite dramas. It's the only drama I actually started watching for a 2nd time. It's so entertaining. It has a fun storyline and an amazing cast. I can't help but fall in love with all of the characters. I get so attached to each one and love them so much. I love Gong Yoo so much because of this drama. He's so handsome and his smile. He's just so dreamy! The amount of chemistry between Gong Yoo and Eun Hye is outstanding. I love this pair so much!!! The kiss scenes are some of the best I've seen in dramaland and I know many would agree. It's passionate and sweet. You can really tell that the main leads are comfortable with each other. Yoon Eun-Hye is the best actress I've seen who played a male character so spot on, I can't imagine anyone else playing this character but her because she did so amazing and actually looked like a boy! The only thing I disliked about this drama which isn't a big deal was the 2nd female lead. She kept leading these 2 guys on like it didn't hurt them at all. She made me furious but it's all good. This is a classic that any drama lover NEEDS TO WATCH!!!
