Kim Shin, or Goblin, is on the search for his bride who will finally allow him to move on after removing the sword from his chest. He spent years feeling lonely until he starts to fall in love with his bride and find a new purpose.

Kim Shin and Eun-Tak's romance is one that fans always remember. It was emotional, tear-jerking, romantic, and heartbreaking all in one. This couple deserves an award for its cute moments, like when Kim Shin was flabbergasted that she was able to follow him to Canada, or when they both get jealous over a past ex and love letter.

1 Bong-Soon & Min-Hyuk (Strong Woman Bong-Soon)

Bong-Soon (Park Bo-Young) is one of the K-drama leads often remembered for her storyline and character. Behind her sweet and cute demeanor is a tough and badass woman who has exceptional superhuman strength. Her love story with Min-Hyuk (Park Hyung-Sik) was the cherry on top. She becomes the bodyguard of a young CEO, while also being a childhood friend.

Along the way, she comes to let go of her past love and have feelings for her boss. Fans adored this couple, as they were cute, sweet, and heartwarming. Fans recall the scene when Min-Hyuk tries to scold her, but she gets away by making his heart flutter when she gives him a nickname.

24 K-Drama Love Stories That Tugged At Our Heartstrings
Crash Landing On You ()

If you love a good star-crossed romance story, this highly-rated romantic comedy drama is right up your alley. South Korean heiress Yoon Se-ri (Son Ye-jin) accidentally lands in North Korean territory after a paragliding mishap, and falls straight into the arms of North Korean captain Ri Jeong-hyuk (Hyun Bin). Romance blossoms inevitably, but how will they survive this cross-border relationship?

The much raved about drama features Sung Deok Mi, portrayed by Park Min Young (Kim Mi So in What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim), as an art gallery curator with a secret. She is a dedicated fangirl of Shi An, an idol group member – an obsession that has impacted several of her past relationships.

Something In The Rain ()

Then you have to check out her previous series, Something In The Rain, where she plays a woman in her mids who&#;s clueless at dating, who begins developing feelings for her younger brother&#;s best friend. As the title suggests, expect lots of melodramatic, sweet scenes under pouring rain.

What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim?! ()

Fluffy and light-hearted, this romantic comedy begins as Kim Mi So, a dependable secretary, decides to leave her job after working for Lee Young Joon, her self-proclaimed perfect boss of nine years. The drama balances between sweet and steamy scenes, coupled with flashbacks that will keep you invested.

Also known as Guardian: The Great And Lonely God, this fantasy-romantic-comedy was one of the most highest rated drama series in TVN&#;s history until Crash Landing On You broke its record. Starring a bevy of talented stars such as Train To Busan&#;s Gong Yoo and Kim Go Eun, this fan favourite series  sees modern-day goblin (Gong Yoo) seeking a human bride (Kim Go Eun) to end his cursed immortal life, has everything from comedy to melodrama and supernatural elements.

If you're not watching Korean dramas, better known as K-dramas, then you're missing out in several ways. First, there's the big-picture, cultural impact to consider: K-dramas have become a worldwide phenomenon, and if you're going to be a pop culture connoisseur/productive denizen of the entertainment-loving internet—and you're here, so you obviously are both of those things—then you need to be versed in all things K-drama. And then there's the more important reason to watch K-dramas: They are addictive and amazing, and you'll thank yourself for adding them to your pop culture diet.

Known for their interesting storylines and intense (if sometimes predictable) plot twists, Korean dramas can go from super sappy to incredibly heartbreaking to "WTF, what was that?" in a heartbeat. That variety is exactly what keeps viewers coming back for more. Here, we've listed the best K-dramas to watch.

If you haven't yet checked out Squid Game, which is set to become Netflix's most-watched show ever, then here's one more recommendation: This edge-of-your-seat Korean thriller is definitely worth a look.

If the players loose at Tug of War or Red Light, Green Light, they die.

Will they succeed in their journey and will their love be able to transcend time?

I'm somewhat biased because I am an unabashed Lee Dong-wook stan, but Touch Your Heart is really, really fun to watch. Things take place in a high-powered law firm, where a washed-up actress works as a secretary for a cranky attorney. The two leads have great chemistry—they've played star-crossed lovers in another drama, Goblin—and they're both extremely good-looking. Plus, it's another workplace love story! Is the universe trying to send me a sign?

In this KBS drama, a tough as nails former ballerina tries to regain her prima donna status with the help of her mischievous guardian angel. Blinded in a tragic accident, Lee Yeon-seo is desperate to get back to the stage, but the scheming and conniving of the people around her prevents her from making her return. Dan, a guardian angel just one mission away from completing his duties on earth, gets suckered into yet another assignment and falls in love on the job.

(True k-pop stans will immediately recognize the lead character in Angel's Last Mission: Love—it's L from the iconic group Infinite! Sadly, I don't think we'll be getting much singing in this dramabut you can stream "The Chaser" on all platforms.)

Fans of Shin Sung-rok (The King's Face, The Last Empress), rejoice—your second lead syndrome is over! The actor finally snagged a leading role in the KBS romantic comedy Perfume as Seo Yi-do, an eccentric fashion designer plagued with endless phobias. He's known for often playing the villain (he's really good at being bad), but in this drama, you can actually root for him to get the girl!

The premise is simple, at least for a Korean drama: A depressed housewife on the brink of a breakdown receives a magic perfume that makes her into an entirely new person. With her new face and identity, she decides to pursue a modeling career, and ultimately clashes with the prickly self-proclaimed god of fashion.


Chief of Staff

Remember House of Cards? The Netflix original series followed the complex and super sheisty lives of politicians and journalists in Washington, D.C. The show was nothing short of a hit, but it came to an unfortunate end once its star became embroiled in a very serious, very disturbing controversy.

Chief of Staff is a lot like House of Cards, but rest assured, the drama is maintained within the show. There's scheming, manipulation, illicit affairs, serious criminal activity, and a whole lot of lying to the general public by the voters by the very people they put in office—sounds appropriate for the day and age we're living in, no?

Although we love outrageously plotted k-dramas, Something in the Rain is a more straightforward and realistic look into an ill-fated romance and workplace discrimination. Yoon Jin-ah is a single career woman who begins a romance with her friend’s little brother after he returned from a stint abroad. But their relationship draws an immense amount of scrutiny from their families, who don’t approve. Jin-ah also faces a sexist workplace, where she and her female co-workers are demeaned by their male colleagues.

Does broke millennials working underpaid jobs and dealing with today’s high cost of living sound familiar? The characters in Because This Is My First Life are just like us–following their dreams, working in high-powered industries, all the while just barely reaping the benefits. Nam Sae-hee (Lee Min-ki) is a software developer working for a start-up who suffers from a mortgage that eats up all his disposable income. Yoon Ji-ho (Jung So-min) is a struggling screenwriter who dreams of developing her own k-dramas, but she’s relegated to being a highly underpaid writer’s assistant on mediocre shows. After she’s forced to move out of her apartment, she ends up renting out a room in Sae-hee’s house. When they realize that a fake-marriage would be mutually advantageous for both their precarious financial situations and societal expectations, they decide to tie the knot. Obviously, one thing leads to another and they’re unable to separate their contractual marriage from the real feelings that they begin to develop.

10 First Love K-Dramas That Guaranteed Will Give You Butterflies

Those first love butterfly feels.

The “I-can’t-live-without-you” kind of passionate and innocent love: the K-drama world is so good at telling stories of first loves. And although there are a lot of K-dramas that revolve around this theme, there are very few of them that give off those butterfly feelings that first loves are meant to give. If you’re looking to watch a K-drama that is bound to put a smile on your face with all the adorable cheesiness and hearts, here’s a look at 10 K-dramas.

Warning: Minor spoilers ahead.


All three of the “Reply” series involves first loves, but the original “Reply ” takes the cake in terms of first love butterflies. Seo In Guk stars as a high school student named Yoon Yoon Jae who has been in love with his childhood friend and neighbor, Sung Shi Won (Jung Eun Ji), since they were kids. Despite the two having a brother/sister-like relationship, Yoon Jae’s feelings grow deeper as they get into high school and he realizes that he wants nothing more than to be with her.

There are so many scenes throughout the series that will have your heart screaming for more. Their first kiss, the first time Yoon Jae confesses his love, the first date they have – it all brings out the feels and will have you wanting a first love like theirs.

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

Everything about “Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo” will make you want to fall in love. Bok Joo, played by Lee Sung Kyung, is a student who is trying to become a professional weightlifter. She meets her childhood friend named Jung Joon Young (Nam Joo Hyuk) at her college, and by chance, ends up crushing on his older brother (Lee Jae Yoon). When things don’t work out with the older brother, Joon Young is there for Bok Joo. He bends over backwards to try and make her feel better, and in turn, begins to develop really strong feelings for her.

The relationship that Bok Joo and Joon Young embark on is far too cute for words. It could be because of the actors’ strong chemistry, but the love between the two characters is so strong and definitely gives off that innocent first love feeling. The way Bok Joo is able to pour her heart out to Joon Young when things aren’t going well and the way Joon Young just holds her in his arms when she is feeling down is all just too cute. No matter how much you watch this series, you’ll feel all warm inside!

Fight My Way

“Fight My Way” stars Park Seo Joon and Kim Ji Won as two childhood friends who experienced all the pangs of growing up together. These two are pretty much inseparable and consider each other basically like siblings, that is, until Park Seo Joon’s character Go Dong Man realizes his deeper feelings for his girl best friend, Choi Ae Ra.

This whole series instills a feeling of nostalgia and longing for that first love. Seeing Choi Ae Ra and Go Dong Man protect each other and go the distance to try and be there for each other during life’s hardships is so touching to watch. Even the little things like Dong Man letting Ae Ra cry it out while he covers her in public totally makes you want to have a friendship and love like theirs. Their love for each other is so deep, especially because they’ve grown up with each other and know each other inside out. Their bickering and poking fun at each other is hilarious to see, too!

Discovery Of Love

One of the most adorable parts of “Discovery of Love” is when Jung Yu Mi and Eric first meet. They are young travelers who meet by chance, and Yu Mi’s character Han Yeo Reum falls in love at first sight with Kang Tae Ha (Eric). She even admits it to him the first time they meet!

The two characters end up dating for five long years and are each other’s first loves. It’s an endearing series as it consists of various flashbacks to when the two were lovers and first started dating. In the present, Yeo Reum is in a new relationship and Tae Ha shows up in her life again. She’s forced to remember the times that she had with Tae Ha in the past and how happy she was to be with them. The flashbacks between the two show the realities of first loves and also show the sparks that the two had when they first started dating. Seeing how Tae Ha is with Yeo Reum in trying to win her back is so swoon-worthy, it’ll have your heart skipping a beat!

Radio Romance

“Radio Romance” tells the story of a boy named Ji Soo Ho (Yoon Doojoon) and a girl named Song Geu Rim (Kim So Hyun) who meet by chance in a hospital as teenagers. Soo Ho grows up to become a famous actor, alone and depressed, while Geu Rim grows up to be an aspiring writer for a radio station. The two meet again as adults and Soo Ho remembers her as the first girl he fell in love with. And although their relationship is a love-hate one at first, they come to fall deeply in love with each other.

The story is pretty classic, but probably anyone’s fantasy dream come true. A famous actor ends up falling head-over-heels in love with a regular girl. The way Ji Soo Ho looks at Geu Rim throughout the series and how much he’s willing to sacrifice to be with her is so romantic. You’ll love the cheesy but sweet lines he says to her!

Love Rain

“Love Rain” is a classic first love K-drama. It stars Jang Geun Suk as Seo Joon and YoonA as Jung Ha Na. Seo Joon is a hotshot photographer who is also a bit of a playboy. He meets Ha Na and the two fall in love, but what makes their relationship special is that it ties in with their parents’ love story. They come to realize that their fate is intertwined far more than they could have ever imagined.

“Love Rain” has got all the elements needed to give you that heartwarming and giddy feeling when seeing the two main leads fall in love. The drama starts off in the ’70s, so it’s got a very vintage and classic feel that adds to all the romance. You’ll also be blown away by the adorable chemistry between Jang Geun Suk and YoonA!

So we all loved “Who Are You: School ” and its infamous love triangle, but “School ” is just as heartwarming and cute. “School ” starred Kim Sejeong as Ra Eun Ho and Kim Jung Hyun as Hyun Tae Woon. Eun Ho and Tae Woon spark an adorable first love romance while being classmates.

The cutest part about this series besides the two main leads is how much Tae Woon is smitten with Eun Ho. Even after he confesses to her and she is figuring out how she feels about him, he continues to be by her side, and it’s sweet to see how he wears his heart on his sleeve. The series also touches on not giving up on your dreams, and seeing Tae Woon support Eun Ho’s dream gives all the feels! There’s something about a bad boy turning to mush for the girl he loves that makes our hearts skip a beat!

Flower Boy Next Door

Yoon Shi Yoon plays Enrique Geum, the charming flower-boy next door. One of the main reasons why this series is bound to give you butterflies is because of this character. Enrique has got all the personality needed to bring Go Dok Mi (Park Shin Hye) out of her shell. He’s endearingly quirky and has got an endless amount of energy that is infectious.

Go Dok Mi has social anxiety and is afraid to leave the confines of her house, so when she fatefully meets her next door neighbor, she’s challenged to face her fears and take a leap of faith. You’ll appreciate and adore the development of their relationship, especially as Dok Mi experiences not only the outside world for the first time but also love. It’s the cutest relationship, and seeing Yoon Shi Yoon act all goofy and aegyo-filled will warm your heart!

EXO Next Door

What would you do if your ultimate bias moved in right next door? And he/she fell in love with you. It’d be a dream come true, right? “EXO Next Door” is like a fan’s dream come true. Ji Yeon Hee (Moon Ga Young), is in love with EXO, and when they move in next door to her, a couple of them end up falling for her.

If you want to live vicariously through the fictitious character of Yeon Hee as she gets caught in a love triangle with her first love, Chanyeol, and D.O., then this is the perfect series to watch. Your heart will skip a beat several times each episode just out of sheer excitement and jealousy for Yeon Hee.

I Hear Your Voice

“I Hear Your Voice” is about a boy named Park Soo Ha (Lee Jong Suk) who has the special gift of being able to read other people’s minds. He later meets Jang Hye Sung (Lee Bo Young) who had indirectly saved Soo Ha’s life in the past. She is now a lawyer and when Soo Ha is in high school, he falls in love with her.

The best part about this series is that it’s a noona romance. Hye Sung is older than Soo Ha and despite their age gap, their chemistry is through the roof. I loved seeing Soo Ha wear his heart on his sleeve and remain persistent in trying to convince Hye Sung to give him a chance. There are so many romantic moments between Soo Ha and Hye Sung that will give you those butterflies! You won’t even notice the age gap!
