TOP 10: Romance K-Dramas!

This week's theme in the kdrama community is romance. So I'll be giving you some of my favorite romance Kdramas.

ENJOY!

10. Love Rain

PLOT (Source: DramaWiki)
"Love Rain" depicts a 1970's pure love and a love from the present day at the same time. It shows how the children of a previous ill-fated couple, who met in the 1970s, managed to meet and fall in love. Seo In Ha (Jang Geun-suk) and Kim Yoon Hee (Im Yoon-ah), an art student and a shy beauty, met and fell in love with each other during college in the 1970s but unfortunately their love was fated to never be. Now in the present 21st century Korea, Seo In Ha's son, Seo Joon (Jang Geun-suk) (a liberal photographer) meets and falls in with the daughter of Kim Yoon Hee, Jung Ha Na, (Im Yoon-ah) a cheerful and energetic girl who's personality is different from her mother's. Will their love for each other keep them together or will they have to face the same fate as their parents?
Thoughts?
Love Rain is a great rom-com. The main couple had good chemistry. Now be warned, the first 3-4 episodes are slow paced because they tell the backstory of the parents relationship but after that it gets really good and adorable. It's a really sweet drama!

9. It's Okay, That's Love

PLOT (Source: DramaWiki)
Jang Jae Yul (Jo In Sung) is a mystery writer and radio DJ. He suffers from a obsession. He then meets a psychiatrist named Ji Hae Soo. Ji Hae Soo (Gong Hyo Jin) is going through her first year fellowship in psychiatry at a University Hospital. She chose psychiatry because she doesn't want to perform surgeries. After she meets Jang Jae Yul, her life goes through big changes. They end up becoming home-mates and things turn romantic.
Thoughts?
This was a highly entertaining drama and thrilling. Amazing chemistry that got a lot of recognition. The storyline is great and made me cry a few times. This is a great drama that I really recommend.

8. Healer

PLOT (Source: Wiki)
A decades-old incident involving a group of friends who ran an illegal broadcasting station brings together three different people—an illegal mercenary with the codename "Healer" (Ji Chang-wook) who happens to possess top-notch fighting skills, a reporter from a second-rate tabloid news website (Park Min-young), and a famous journalist at a major broadcast station (Yoo Ji-tae). In trying to uncover the truth from that 1992 incident, they grow into real, honest reporters, while dealing with the conflict between truth and fate.
Thoughts?
Healer is my 2nd favorite drama of all time. Amazing chemistry!!! Great storyline, great cast, great romance and funny. The soundtrack is beautiful and it kept me entertained! Plus Chang Wook stole my heart because of this drama.

7. Flower Boy Ramen Shop

PLOT (Source: DramaWiki)
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).
Thoughts?
I love this drama mostly because of the main leads. They are so cute and this is the drama that made me fall in love with Il-woo. He's so hot! It's a cute rom-com!

6. Another Oh Hae Young

PLOT (Source: MyDramaList)
There are two women named Oh Hae Yeong, who were classmates in high school, getting all mixed up in each other’s lives because they share the same name. The problem is that they not only share the name, but they also have the same occupation, which is probably the bigger issue. They both come to work for the same large catering company, but one is a team leader while the other is simply an assistant manager. Then there’s also a man in their lives, who has the ability to see into the future...
Thoughts?
This drama was really entertaining. Amazing chemistry, fun cast, good plot line and really cute.

5. Pinocchio

PLOT (Source: MyDramaList)
The idealistic Choi In Ha (Park Shin-hye) has her work cut out for her when she becomes a broadcast journalist, especially when she suffers from a condition known as “Pinocchio syndrome,” which makes her break out into hiccups whenever she tells a lie. Her rookie colleagues include Choi Dal Po (Lee Jong Suk), whose shabby appearance masks his true eloquence and sharp memory; Seo Bum Jo (Kim Young Kwang), a wealthy heir who has had everything handed to him in life; and Yoon Yoo Rae (Lee Yu Bi), whose fangirl knowledge comes in handy in covering the news. The 20-something newbie reporters pursue justice as they try to discover themselves in the process.
Thoughts?
Well Pinocchio is my favorite drama of all time and for many reasons. I love the main couple so much, they are one of my favorite otp's. Great chemistry, funny, emotional, interesting plot and the romance! If you haven't seen Pinocchio I fully recommend you give it a try!

4. Fated to Love You

PLOT (Source: Wiki)
After each of them separately drinks a love potion, everything changes. Lee Gun (Jang Hyuk) is the successor to a large company run by his family. Kim Mi Young (Jang Nara) is an average-looking secretary in a law firm who earned the nickname “Post-It” for her inability to say no to her colleagues who dump work on her. When the two cross paths one night after separately having drunk a love potion, a comedy of errors occurs. Kim Mi Young goes into the wrong hotel room because the hotel door number accidentally changes, and the door is propped open by the mischief-making love potion makers. She ends up sleeping with Lee Gun. When Mi Young finds out afterwards that she is pregnant, what will become of them? And will Kang Se Ra (Wang Ji-won) and Daniel (Choi Jin Hyuk) just stand by and let Gun and Mi Young deal with the situation in their own way? “Fated to Love You (Korean Version)” is a 2014 South Korean drama series that is a remake of the popular 2008 Taiwanese drama by the same title.
Thoughts?
This was the very successful remake that I love so much! It's my 4th favorite drama. It's cute, funny and will also make you bawl your eyes out like crazy. But it's a beautiful drama about a baby bringing 2 strangers together and they fall in love. Plus this drama has the best kdrama ending I've seen!

3. My Unfortunate Boyfriend

PLOT (Source: Wiki)
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.
Thoughts?
So adorable, Tae-woon is my favorite kdrama character of all time. He's so cute, innocent and sweet! This is an adorable rom-com that I adore that not many people talk about.

2. Coffee Prince

PLOT (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"?
Thoughts?
Every drama fan has at least heard of this classic, if not I don't know where you have been. But Coffee Prince is a gender bender rom-com classic. It's funny, cute and the chemistry is one of the best I've ever seen! If you haven't seen it then you need to add it to your list.

1. Marriage Not Dating

PLOT (Source: Wiki)
Wealthy plastic surgeon Gong Gi-tae (Yeon Woo-jin) has no interest in getting married; marriage is all shop girl Joo Jang-mi (Han Groo) dreams about. In an effort to get his parents off his back about the constant string of blind dates and marriage prospects, Gi-tae purposely brings Jang-mi home to meet his parents posing as his girlfriend, certain that they'll never approve of her. This romantic comedy portrays a man who doesn’t want to get married, and a woman who has no luck with potential marriage prospects.
Thoughts?
This is by far my favorite romance drama hands down! Such amazing chemistry, fun storyline, great cast, it's hilarious and cute. I love this drama to bits, it also has one of my all time ost's and the ending is perfect for this couple! I highly recommend it to everyone. Not many people talk about this drama which saddens me because I love it so much and need to watch it again soon.

I love romance dramas. I just realized that there are still dramas I need to watch. Thanks 😆
@MelissaGarza Yeah you definitely have to watch them!
@biancadanica98 I've add them to my watch list 😆
Yay!!! I definitely recommend you watch My Unfortunate Boyfriend first. I love it so much!!!
I would add Jekyll, Hyde and I to the list.
I started that a long time ago and made it to episode 5 and stopped..
There's only been 1 drama I think I've ever stopped....the Min Ho new one Legend of the Blue Sea. I made it though a handful of episodes and don't like it. I also didn't like Coffee Prince for some reason.
I wasn't the biggest fan of Legend of the Blue Sea but I did watch till the end. Two other dramas that I kind of watched but dropped were High School Love On and Doctor Stranger. Wow, you're the first person I've heard that didn't like Coffee Prince. 😂 It was so enjoyable.

If BTS Were in Boys Over Flowers
Now, I think there are a lot of things wrong with the plot of BoF (mainly the boys treat Jan-di like crap) but its still funto imagine it as a less problematic drama. Here's who I'd cast! Gu Jun Pyo - Suga The leader of the F4 and heir to the Shinhwa Group, one of the biggest companies in South Korea. He is hot-tempered and believes that there is nothing that money can't buy. Though he's unable to express his feelings, deep down, he has a heart of gold. He torments Jan-di after she stands up to his bullying ways, but ends up falling in love with her and will do anything to protect her. Yoon Ji Hoo - V A member of the F4 and the grandson of a former president of Korea. He has a driving phobia after being involved in a car accident that killed his parents and left him the only survivor. He is initially in love with his childhood friend Seo-hyun, who helped him overcome his social anxiety. Calm and gentle, his musical talent catches Jan-di's attention and she begins to develop feelings for him. So Yi Jung - Jungkook A member of the F4 and a skilled potter. His family owns the country's biggest art museum. After losing his first love to his brother, he becomes a Casanova. He eventually changes his playboy ways when he realizes that he likes Ga-eul. Song Woo Bin A member of the F4, his family runs the country's largest construction company, which Woo-bin later admits has strong connections to organized crime. However, he has excellent business sense and is very charismatic. He's a super nice guy that happens to be a gangster lol and of course RM, Jin, and Jimin are the dad, mom, and little brother :) How would you cast BOF?
Flower of Evil - K-Drama Recommendation
Main Cast: Lee Joon Gi, Moon Chae Won, Jang Hee Jin, Seo Hyun Woo Episodes: 16 (1 Hour Episodes) - Currently Airing (On Viki) Rating: 15+ Genre: Thriller, Romance, Crime, Drama, Melodrama Other Genre Tags: Mystery, Serial Killer, Hidden Identity, Psychological, Suspense Synopsis: Baek Hee Sung seems like the ideal husband. A hard-working craftsman, his metal-working studio has met with its fair share of success. Able to provide a good life for his wife and daughter, he’s a good example of what a husband should be. But this perfect façade hides some very dark secrets that even his wife, Cha Ji Won remains unaware of. Unfortunately, secrets have a way of coming out and as a hard-hitting homicide detective, it’s Cha Ji Won’s job to uncover as many as she can, in her never-ending quest for the truth. While investigating a particularly cruel case, she finds herself on a dark path that could crumble the very foundations of her happy life. But she is determined to bring this psychopath to justice. Delving deeper into the case, she realizes that he may have been closer than she thought. (Source: Viki) My Thoughts: VERY intriguing so far! There are only 2 episodes out so far and it's very suspenseful and thrilling. This isn't really a spoiler but Baek Heesung/Do Hyunsoo (Lee Joongi) is suspected to be a serial killer but has changed his identity and has married Cha Jiwon (Moon Chaewon) who happens to be a cop. The two of them have a kid together, however, there's a kicker being that Heesung/Hyunsoo lacks emotions. Something he seems to have gotten from his father who is also said to be a serial killer. Note, this is not really a spoiler since all this is revealed within the confines of the first 2 episodes. I find this plot-line to be very new, at least to the Korean drama scene. The only Korean drama I can even pit against this one in being similar is Kill It and that is because the male in that drama is also a murderer, but their backgrounds are entirely different. You could say that Psychopath Diary is slightly similar, however, that drama is a comedy and is based off the idea of a misunderstanding. Even though we haven't been fully exposed to the idea that Heesung/Hyunsoo is infact a murderer we still see him doing stuff that someone who is innocent wouldn't do. I find this interesting. Another thing I like is that we get to see a character who has trouble showing emotions. This isn't something new to the K-Drama scene for we have seen similar variations in dramas such as It's Okay To Not Be Okay, Dr. Frost, Stranger (Forest of Secrets), and The Smile Has Left Your Eyes. It is nice to see characters that aren't perfect if that makes any sense! I am definitely curious to see where this drama leads and to find out if Heesung/Hyunsoo is actually a murderer or if he's being falsely accused and us the audience are being tricked! - See my last K-drama recommendations below: Train It's Okay to Not Be Okay Extracurricular Memorist & Arthdal Chronicles Rugal & 365: Repeat the Year The World of the Married & Find Me in Your Memory The King: Eternal Monarch & My Holo Love - What I'm Currently Watching: Flower of Evil 2/16 - Korean It's Okay to Not Be Okay 12/16 - Korean Psychopath Diary 5/16 - Korean Train 4/12 - Korean Trap 4/12 - Korean Web-drama U-Prince: The Badly Politics 3/4 - Thai - Friend Me On MyDramaList Here: Halsyeon - Asian Drama/Movie Taglist: @KendraReeve @travelloveskin @MelissaGarza @KpopIsPleasing @LostMage @2ilVer @LinnyOk @rocklvr @VeronicaArtino @Just2BLoved @Kyla05 If you'd like to be tagged in any of my Asian drama/actor stuff please let me know!
Korean TV, This Is Just Getting Ridiculous
So by now we all know about Produce 101. In case you don't, though, here's a short breakdown: There have been two seasons on MBC (one for girls, one for boys) that takes 101 trainees and puts them through tests and voting until only a certain number remain and they create a new idol group (for a short period of time, then they go back to their original companies. The channel KBS is preparing to take it to the next level. The company is preparing a show currently called "The Final 99 Match" that will take performers that have had the chance to debut, but never found success. There are plenty of idol groups (unfortuately called "nugus") that have never really succeeded. Ideally, this show is where they get a chance to join a new group and get a shot at fame. That's sort of normal and understandable, but this is where it gets absolutely ridiculous. There reportedly will be 250 BOYS AND 250 GIRLS competing. 9 of each gender will survive and be placed into groups (number of groups have not been decided) I understand that idol TV shows are getting popular, much like how American Idol in the States led to The X Factor, The Voice, America's Got Talent, etc etc etc. But 500 people?! When they've already survived the harsh kpop audition and training system to debut? That must be so heartbreaking for all of them. I'd feel less bad if they were complete rookies with zero training but dang, to already debut...its like NU'EST being in Produce 101 right now. So sad for the fans :/ I wish everyone luck and hope it changes some lives for the better but I have a feeling this competition is going to be a heart ache. What do you guys think? source
