I have always loved mythological creatures, but I think too many YA paranormal books focus on four creatures: vampires, werewolves, angels and fairies. So with the help of my followers (really they did all the work, I just wrote down the books into categories), I have compiled a list of books with underrated mythological creatures. Just to clarify, I haven’t read most of these books.

Have in mind that this list only contains the dramas I completed and liked.
As we all know, 2016 was till this day the best year for kdramas.
Lucky romance: I really liked the character of the main lead since he’s not that stereotypical perfect dude on his white horse. The chemistry between the leads was awesome but I had higher expectations for the ending.
Weightlifting fairy Kim Bok Joo: I can’t express my love for this drama. EVERYTHING WAS PERFECT. Definitely on my TOP 5 kdramas.
Jealousy incarnate: The drama was good overall even thought I think they dragged it a little bit too much. Perfect to watch when you are bored. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a very good drama, it’s just that I’ve seen better.
Another Oh Hae Young: It’s was savage. Can’t say more. Actually yes, Savage and sexy !
Drinking solo: I’m not really into these kind of dramas. I liked all the stories beside the main lead’s tbh.
Cinderella and the four knights: Cute…Cute and Hella Cute..
Uncontrollably fond: A VERY OVERWHELMING DRAMA…Grab some tissues for every single episode. It’s a roller coaster mates..
My wife’s having an affair this week: A very mature drama. I enjoyed and learned a lot from it.
Moon lovers: Don’t GET ME STARTED ON THIS ONE PLEASE…I WON’T SHUT UP *Start crying*
Descendants of the sun: I don’t know why I don’t talk about this drama a lot. It’s definitely one of those that deserve their fame.
The K2: It’s soo not the best kdrama Ji chang wook was in, but it was great anyways. I blame it on the plot development but the acting was great.
W-Two worlds: Don’t kill me, but it’s the only drama I liked of Lee Jong Suk along with I can hear your voice.
Let’s fight ghost: I was really not expecting to like this drama. Turned out it was very good. Awesome plot, character development, acting skills and great main leads chemistry.
Goblin: I was really into it when I was watching it, and was ready to make it on my TOP 5 but…I don’t know now…
Age of youth: I’m so glad I decided to watch this drama. Everyone should watch it imo ! It’s very eye opening.
Fight for my way: I really think it will be the best drama of 2017. It was very realistic, and the leads chemistry was everything. I can’t believe people complained about it having to much kissing scenes *Laughing emoji* WTH..
Suspicious partner: I was specially into the female lead’s strong will and personality. They could have worked better on the romance but well…
Tomorrow with you: Veeeeery cringy. But good cringy LOL. Cute cringy if you want.
Strong woman Do Bong Soon: Kinda reminded me of weightlifting fairy Kim Bok Joo. In a good way. The leads were the definition of cute and they both portrayed the characters excellently.
ACTION/ MYSTERY/ THRILLER :
Defendant: I just wanted to say that I love JI SUNG a lot. He’s precious.
Circle: That was complex, mind blowing and very tense ! I demand S2.
(BONUS) Secret forest: I’m only on the 10th episode and man, I donno what I’ll do with my life when I’ll finish it.
Hellooo~ I apologize for being late but I hope you guys like it ^^ I purposely left their eyes or hair the way they are and let Sev keep his iconic glasses so that they can be differentiated from the characters or beings they are dressed up as.
