Any good k-drama suggestions?
Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo, Go Back Couple
I am not personally into K-drama but when I watched Doctor Stranger starring Lee Jong Suk, I began to appreciate how Koreans make good and meaningful series.
The story was about about a doctor's son who followed the footstep of his dad being a heart surgeon.He studied and became the best cardiologist in North Korea then went back to South Korea to find his childhood sweet heart who happens to be also a doctor. Story revolves on how he practiced his craft being a heart surgeon despite the prejudice of being from North Korea. The story ends obviously with a happy ever after. For the whole story , I recommend watching it. It was a great story and for me is must watch indeed.
I learned from it that we should not let others judge us because of our past and where we came from. What matters is what we are truly as a person and how we can make a positive impact to others lives just like what Park Hoon did in the story.
It is a bit old but please watch to appreciate.
Some of the best k-dramas that I've watched was:
The Descendants-the Song-Song couple the best!
Legend of the Blue Sea-Lee Min Ho is still one of the best korean actors for me. All his shows are definitely worth watching.
Hwaugi(Korean Odessey)-Very interesting story, I was very hooked (I think I watched this in just a day) still can't accept how it ended tho.
Goblin-i really really loved this show. And I've recently heard they've signed up for a part 2 so I'm really looking forward to it.
What's Wrong With Secretary Kim-this show is best when you're just looking for a "feel good" show. I loved how it made me laugh almost the way through out the show.
Most of this series are from last year. I haven't watched a lot lately cause I've been busy but I guarantee that all those shows that I've mentioned are worth watching.
Whats wrong with Secretary Kim
While you were sleeping
Meteor Garden (korean version)
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo- if you are looking for a college romcom story theme then this is a must.
While You Were Sleeping- this one is in top of my list because it cinematography and the flow of the story is great (best part is Bae Suzy tho ). Its a romcom mystery type of kdrama.
Sensory Couple- it's a type crime, sci-fi and romcom kdrama, the characters have great acting so it's recommended.
Queen of the Ring- this is just a short kdrama so if you are just new in kdrama then you try this one so you can have an overview on it
I did like Gangnam beauty because of the message of accepting people’s choices and the issues with judging people but I really didn’t feel the chemistry between the couple. Idk why people keep saying Gangnam beauty is the best.
Legend of the blue sea,Weightlifting fairy kim book joo are two of the many korean drama I've already watched. They are all good story. Im not a super fan of korean drama,but this two is an excuse. This is a beautiful story.
Here are some of the bests I've watched so far:
What's wrong with Secretary Kim?
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
My ID is Gangnam Beauty
My Love from another Star
While You Were Sleeping
Descendants of the Sun
I hope this helps. I really enjoyed these shows not only because they are fun to watch but also because I loved the production and the cinematography. I enjoy criticizing short details and I usually spot some intentional details on most of the scenes so if you are like me then these are the shows you should be watching.
Comeback Mister, it was an unexpected good watch. I watched it because of Rain but I found Oh Yeon Seo and Honey Lee's chemistry hilarious. Rain and Oh Yeon Seo scenes were funny too.
My ID is beauty.gangnam
TRAIN TO BUSAN 2.
I definitely hold Descendants of the Sun in high esteem out of all the K Dramas I've seen. I was skeptical upon starting it since this genre is filled of shows that are just overly chummy, but this show pleasantly surprised me.
I don't want to go into details to avoid spoiling anyone who haven't watched it yet, but I will tell you why it's good. This show is not predictable, go into depth about our civil servants and makes you wonder if what you're doing in life is worth it. If that doesn't pique your interest, I don't know what will. Enjoy!

THE GREATEST LOVE
This drama is simply funny, sweet, and sometimes... sad. The story focuses on Ku Ae-Jung, the lead vocalist of the ex-popular girl group called "National Treasure Girls". After the group announced their breakup, Ku Ae-Jung experienced many difficulties in life. On the other hand, top actor Dok Ko-Jin, who is in fact arrogant and rude, is being chased by the public. The two are in separate worlds until they met each other in an unexpected time, unexpected place, and unexpected way.
Kong Hyo-Jin as Ku Ae-Jung
Cha Seung-Won as Dok Ko-Jin
Yoon Kye-Sang as Yoon Pil-Joo
Yoo In-Na as Kang Se-Ri

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND "GOBLIN"
If there is any doubt for this drama , throw it away, because this is an Ultimate One. One word for this drama is "CLASSIC''!!! Just loved it. It was Perfect from 1st Episode to the last one, I'm glad that I've watched it. I'd cried, laugh, this drama creates lots of emotions...All time favourite..You Should watch it,because you'll never regret it. Gong Yoo (Oh My GOBLIN )an amazing actor,was perfect with that role & Kim Go Eun(Ji Run Tak) she's just fabulous actress. Supporting roles was too good. Lee Dong Woom was perfect as Grim Reaper. Many things which are good in this drama is it's Role coaster like plot , It made me Laugh , Cry , Smile & Most importantly Curious & Furious. Hat's Off to the Actors Directors & Specially those Who created OST of this drama , I mean how some Songs & Background Score can be so Perfect & Emotional !!! Still I'm speechless... Words are less to Appreciate this drama.
I suggest “hit the top”. It’s an underrated k-drama and I really don’t understand why. It was such a good drama and have a lot of lessons you can get. I also love the cheese in the trap, except it’s ending. It was full of plot twists so I really loved it but the ending is just not good. It would be a really good ending if that’s not the ending. I can’t really say it since It might spoil others. But nevertheless it’s a good k-drama.
Try to watch "Weightlifting Fairy"! For me, it is one of the best Korean drama that I ever watched. It is really funny and gives you the romantic excitement like never before. The story will give you a peek into life of a student athlete and student differences. It will also give you a glimpse of a realization about the importance of a family. A father-daughter love experience which is really touching and made me feel very emotional.
You should try watching "Boys Over Flowers". It is a movie series. The main character is Lee Min Ho. I remembered watching it at 8PM December 31, 2016 and finished it at 8AM January 1, 2017. I just can't get enough of one episode. I fell in love not just by Go Jun Pyo, but also the rest of the F4. Must watch!!
