Since I had a lot of time to spend at home, I started watching Korean dramas this year. The reasons I got interested in Korean dramas is my sister and mom really like Korean dramas, and they always recommend me to watch some. Now, I’m quite interested in it. Korean actors are so cool and cute😍
So, I want to share with you my favorite dramas today. Most of the dramas are romance because I like love stories. I hope you can find a good one to watch next!!
No.1 “What’s wrong with Secretary Kim?”
Lee Young-Joon’s family runs a large company and he works as the vice-president of the company. He is smart, rich and handsome, but he is arrogant. His secretary is Kim Mi-So. She has worked for him for years and she is perfect for him, but Kim Mi-So decides to quit her job. Both were unaware that they shared the same experience of trauma but ultimately, Kim Mi-so falls in love with Lee Young-joon as they heal each other of their past traumatic experience of being kidnapped.
I really like this drama!! It is a comedy & love story but it has an incident hidden in both experience, behind the story, so it is exciting to see it. First and foremost, secretary Kim is very cute and fashionable, and Lee Young-joon is arrogant but handsome and cute! If you see this, I bet you will be a fan of them. The song is good too!
No.2 “Crash Landing on You”.
Yoon Se-Ri (Son Ye-Jin) is an heiress to a conglomerate in South Korea. One day, while paragliding, an accident caused by strong winds leads Yoon Se-Ri to make an emergency landing in North Korea. There, she meets Ri Jeong-Hyeok (Hyun-Bin), who is a North Korean army officer. He tries to protect her and hide her. Soon, Ri Jeong-Hyeok falls in love with Yoon Se-Ri.
This drama… hard to describe😭 Everything had started from the accident, which is impossible in real life, but it’s a really touchy and thrilling story. I have to think and imagine a lot about North Korea and South Korea. I couldn’t help crying in the end. I know why it’s popular.
No.3 “Romance is a bonus book”
Cha Eun-Ho (Lee Jong-Suk) is a genius writer and the youngest chief editor ever at his publishing company. He is smart and handsome. He is also even tempered at work, but he has a warm heart and a reasonable personality.
Kang Dan-Yi (Lee Na-Young) used to be a popular copywriter, but she is not anymore. She is now broke and unemployed. Even though she tries to find a job, due to her impressive career and excellent educational background, she is unable to find a new job. Finally, Kang Dan-Yi gets a job at a publishing company by lying about her background. Cha Eun-Ho is the chief editor at that publishing company. They begin to develop romantic feelings for each other.
I love this drama too!! I really like Lee Jong-Suk😍His character in this drama is sooo cute and sweet!! I also like the part Kang-Dan-Yi is doing her best at publishing company and everyone recognize her.
No.4 ” She was pretty”
When Sung-Joon (Park Seo-Joon) was young, he was ugly and fat. He also didn’t have any friends, but popular and pretty Hye-Jin (Hwang Jung-Eum) became his friend. She gave him comfort on rainy days when Sung-Jung feels traumatised. They held a special connection with each other, but Sung-Joon and his father moved to the United States. 15 years later, Sung-Joon returns to South Korea. He and Hye-Jin are set to meet again for the first time in many years, but Hye-Jin is unable to show herself in front of Sung-Joon who is looking for her. Both of their appearances have completely changed. Sung-Joon is now handsome and perfect in his appearance, while Hye-Jin looks nothing like her former pretty self. Hye-Jin is also unemployed and looking for a job.
Hye-Jin then asks her best friend Ha-Ri (Koh Joon-Hee) for help. Ha-Ri is to pretend she is Hye-Jin and go meet Sung-Joon. At their meeting, Ha-Ra pretends to be Hye-Jin and tells Sung-Joon that she is leaving for England the next day to study.
Later, Hye-Jin, as an intern at a fashion magazine, meets Sung-Joon who is an editor at the fashion magazine.
This drama was recently on the air in Japan, so many of them know the story. I like Korean ver. more than Japanese one because it has a more comical plot, and music is also good. (“You Don’t Know Me” is the best!! ) Sung-Joon doesn’t realize Hye-Jin is the girl he liked in his childhood, so I was impatiently watching this drama🤣
No.5 “Gangnam Beauty”.
Kang Mi-Rae had a timid personality due to her ugly appearance. She was teased by people and even bullied when she attended school. Now, Kang Mi-Rae is beautiful after undergoing plastic surgery, but she still has her timid personality. Kang Mi-Rae starts her first year at a university. People are still mean to her and call her “Gangnam Beauty” in a derogatory manner. Meanwhile, Do Kyung-Seok attends the same university. He does not judge people by their appearance. He cares about what’s on the inside rather than outside. Do Kyung-Seok begins to like Kang Mi-Rae.
Kang Mi-Rae will have a lot of troubles after entering the same university as Do Kyung-Seok. He is always nice and help her😍If he was in my school, I can’t talk with him because he is such a handsome guy🤣
エントリーナンバー6！『恋するアプリ LOVE ALARM』
No.6 ” LOVE ALARM”
Cellphone app Joalarm is created. If someone likes you and they are within 10 meters of you, the alarm for the app rings. The app also shows how many people like you, but the app doesn’t reveal specific details on who likes you.
Kim Jo-Jo (Kim So-Hyun) is a high school student. She is pretty and smart. She seems like cheerful person, but her parents died when she was young. Since the death of her parents, Kim Jo-Jo has lived with aunt’s family. Living there is not easy for Kim Jo-Jo. She doesn’t download the app Joalarm.
Meanwhile, Hwang Sun-Oh is a popular male student at the same high school where Kim Jo-Jo attends. He is the son of a wealthy family, but he is not loved by his parents. His best friend Lee Hye-Young also attends the same high school. Hwang Sun-Oh notices that his best friend Lee Hye-Young likes Kim Jo-Jo. Hwang Sun-Oh wants to know if his friend really likes her, so he kisses her.
Very popular actor Song Kang is in this drama! I thought what if this app was real, and everyone had it. I would choose not to have🤣 You can’t miss how their love triangle work out.
Park Jae-Eon (Song Kang) is a university student, majoring in art. He seems nice to everyone and he is usually cheerful. Yet, he is really indifferent to others and he doesn’t want to have a romantic relationship. Unexpectedly, he falls for Yoo Na-Bi (Han So-Hee) and begins to change. Yoo Na-Bi is an art student at the same university as Park Jae-Eon. In her past, she broke up with her first love due to his unfaithful ways. After that, decided to become unswayed by love. She then meets Park Jae-Eon and develops feelings for him.
この作品は公開されてからすごく人気になりましたよね！私も毎週日曜日を楽しみに見ていました😊大学生の恋愛の様子をリアルに描いていて、まさに今っぽい内容だな、と思いました。ユ・ナビ（ハン・ソヒ）とジェオン（ソン・ガン）の二人が本当に美しいんですよね、絵になるというか…。2人に惹かれて見ていました。 アンニュイな映像も曲も今までにない感じでよかったです。 また、ドヒョク（チェ・ジョンヒョプ）との三角関係がどうなるかも見どころです！
I think many of you have watched this drama! This was very popular in Japan too! The story is focused on a love and dilemma which normal university students have. Its ennui movie and music were also nice and made it more romantic. I can see this drama forever because Park Jae-Eon and Han So-Hee, they are very beautiful.
No.8 “Start Up”.
Seo Dal-mi (Bae Suzy) is a bright and ambitious young woman who dreams of becoming Korea’s Steve Jobs. Dal-mi doesn’t have a fancy background but she’s passionate about her work. She has bright energy and is a person of great vitality, having experience in a wide range of part-time jobs.
Nam Do-san (Nam Joo-hyuk), is the founder of Samsan Tech. A ‘math genius’ as a young boy, Do-san was once the pride of his family but became their shame now, as his business has been going down for the past two years. He finds out that Dal-mi mistakenly remembers him as her first love, so he decides to work his way up in hopes of turning that misunderstanding into reality.
Before watching this drama, I thought it was a difficult drama because it is business like drama. But it was actually not. It is a funny and heartwarming story. I was laughing a lot while I was watching.Their friendship between Samsan Tech made the story greater and funnier. I was also touched by their passion toward starting an new business. I liked Dal-mi’s grandma😊
Those are my favorite 8 Korean dramas. Were there any dramas you have already watched? I always enjoy watching romance, so I want to try different genre. If you have any recommendation, please let me know😊 I always enjoy reading your comments!
