Bored of watching F.R.I.E.N.D.S and How I Met Your Mother on repeat? With the rise of K-pop, it’s time to talk about Korean drama which is gradually making its place in India too.
1. My Love From Another Star
Do Min Joon is an alien who gets stranded on Earth 400 years ago. The story revolves around how he falls in love with his neighbor and what happens when she comes into his life. Overall, a very nice rom-com.
2. Doctor Crush
3. Uncontrollably Fond
Oh Yeon joo’s (Han Hyo-joo) father mysteriously goes missing while writing the last chapter of his webtoon “W”. Yeon joo goes to his office and is shocked to see a scene of the dying Kang Chul (Lee Jong-suk), the main character of W, on her father’s computer. While reading a note left behind by her father, a hand from the monitor pulled her in and she finds herself on the rooftop of a building next to a bleeding man. She manages to save him and realizes that the person she saved was Kang Chul. Yeon joo later discovers that she can only leave the webtoon based on Kang Chul’s change in feelings. When that happens, the words ‘to be continued’ will appear and she will teleport back to the real world.
5. The Legend of the Blue Sea
The television series centers on the love story of Heo Joon-jae (Lee Min-ho), the son of a rich businessman who becomes a handsome and clever con-man after his parents’ divorce, and a mermaid named Shim Cheong (Jun Ji-hyun). Focusing on rebirth, fate, and unrequited love, their tale is juxtaposed with the parallel story of their Joseon era incarnations, town head Kim Dam-ryeong and the mermaid Se-hwa.
6. Cinderella and Four Knights
Eun Ha Won (Park So-dam) is a bright college student who dreams of becoming a teacher. Unfortunately, she loses her mother in a tragic accident, moves in with a cruel stepmother, and has no money for her education. One day, she helps an old man and as fate would have it, moves into a gorgeous mansion with three equally gorgeous men, who also happen to be billionaire cousins and heirs to the Kang family fortune.
