Korean dramas are really intense and most of the time (always tbh) the actors are super hot!! And you might find some storylines that are probably amazing and some that are not so great but really fun to watch. There's always something for someone. I hope you find something you will like to watch and give it a shot if you have never watched a drama before.
*In no particular order
- It's Okay That's Love
Jang Jae-Yeol is a mystery writer and a radio DJ. He has OCD. Ji Hae-Soo is going through her first year fellowship in psychiatry at a University Hospital. They meet in a talk show and basically hate each other from first sight. But they soon find out they have to live as roommates!!
*trigger warnings: so Ji Hae-Soo works as a psychiatrist - she works with patients with mental illnesses, there's a lot of that + suicide conversations
*also has pretty amazing OST!
- The Heirs
If you liked Gossip Girl → you'll love The Heirs. The lives of rich heirs, experiencing love, rivalries and friendships. Although Cha Eun-Sang comes from a poor background, she goes to the same school as them and gets the attention of the two top Boys, Kim Tan and Choi Young-Do! I love the fashion in this show so much + the shippy feelings you get with some characters is amazing.
- My Love From Another Star
This show is one of the greatest I've seen. It's already a classic tbh you have to watch it! It's basically a hottie alien comes to Earth and has lived there for some (many!) years. He meets one of the top celebrities in the modern era (who also happens to be his student) and chaos begins! Cheon Song-Yi is one of my favorite female characters; she's so funny you won't be able to stop laughing by all the secondhand embarrassment.
- Oh My Ghost
I just finished watching this a few days ago. And let me tell you all that it has: a ghost, a timid girl who gets to see these ghosts, a celebrity chef who loves himself so much, a murder investigation and lots of foodie goods.
- Oh My Venus
This drama definitely went up my favorites list. It is also really HOT??! It was a big surprise for me because I remembered some dramas only had one kiss (!!) but the new released ones have lots of sexy scenes that you'll enjoy. Oh My Venus is about a lawyer who wants to be healthy so she asks for the help of a famous Hollywood trainer she meets by chance.
- Cheese In The Trap
Adapted from a webtoon, Chesee in the Trap is about two college students and all their friends. Hong-Seol sees that everyone likes Yoo Jung; he's nice, handsome and really smart. But only she realizes that sometimes he has a dark-ish side.
- She Was Pretty
If you want to find out how fashion magazines work, this is the perfect show for you! Enter the fashion world + the edition part, She Was Pretty is about two childhood friends that reunite. He's one of the editors in the magazine and she's an intern. He doesn't know she's the girl he has been in love for years.
- My Lovable Girl
I'm only going to recommend this one because all the faves appear: Rain, Krystal and L!!! Watch it for them. The drama is about a guy who loses his girlfriend in an accident. He is the president of an entertainment company. Years later, he meets the younger sister of his late girlfriend and they fall in love.
- Surplus Princess
Mermaid meets human. If you like The Little Mermaid you'll love this one. Plus it's a bit more modern and super funny. A mermaid wants to become human because she fell in love with him. She finds out after becoming a human, she has to find her true love in the next 100 days or else she'll turn to bubbles.
- Dream High
It takes place in an art school that helps kids become famous in singing and dancing. It's the story of three underdogs and how they'll achieve stardom and finding their true selves inside.
- Shut Up Flower Boy Band
This show is about a high school band wanting to be famous. It has an amazing OST and pretty eye candy ლ(╹◡╹ლ) *whispers* Watch it for L and Sung Joon.Dramas I haven't watched but want to:
- The Descendants of the Sun [this is my next one!]
- Doctor Stranger
- Love Me If You Dare [Chinese drama]
- The Masters Sun
