dsaksadsajgsad, okay, okay, so!!! So kdrama should def be started out according to what type you’re into, so I’m just gonna throw out a few recs with descriptions, and if you’re interested in any, you can find ‘em all with English subs on myasiantv or dramaload ^_^
Classic first recommendation. The drama’s got humour, friendship, and romance all in good, varying portions. The most important feature is how the two leads remain independent even when they fall in love. Their worlds don’t revolve around each other, and they don’t let each other get away with bullshit. It’s a refreshing change from the usual love stories. Try the first few eps, and see if you’re not into it by the end of ep 4.
Another romcom that’s more focused on the work ethic of the couple. Difference is this one doesn’t have much plot. If you’re perfectly content to watch it just for the couple’s chemistry and banter, then this is the one. If not, pass.
THIS ONE IS AMAZE. Pinocchio’s unique as the awesomest drama in a good few years okay. It makes you think. It questions your morals when it comes to news, gossip, truth and lies. And on top of that, there’s warm and touching family themes, a sweet romance that’s so refreshingly honest and just- it’s amazing. It stays with you long after you’ve watched it.
This drama’s unique in the sense that it’s pretty episodic, slowly building up to a climax. Watch it for the lovely banter between the leads, the romance and themes of forgiveness and moving on. It’s a Hong sister drama, okay.
This kdrama’s an adaptation of a v popular manga, ‘Nodame Cantabile’. It’s far less serious than other dramas, and a bit heavy on the slapstick, but they make it work. It’s a little different than the original work, but in good ways. Strong themes of working to succeed at what you love, understanding others, comradery and rivalry- and of course a bit of a silly, but sweet romance.
It’s Okay It’s Love
This kdrama is far more serious in tone, in that it actually centres around a serious concept not many people in entertainment consider for long: mental illness. The story unflinchingly calls people out on treating someone with mental illness differently, on the lack of understanding and sympathy. And it shows us that anyone, even people we love, even people who’ve always seemed strong and in-control, can suffer from a mental illness. And if you really love them, you’re supposed to help them through it. Doubly so if the sufferer is in fact yourself.
You’re All Surrounded
A cop kdrama that focuses on themes of friendship and comradery in the police force, with a plot about an unsolved murder running in the background, along with -you guess it- a developing romance. Lbr, I’m trash, all my kdrama have at least a bit of romance. The unsolved-murder plot is a bit weak. But this drama is fun, sweet, and it has Lee Seung Gi in it. I mean, come on.
