5 K-dramas to fall in love with this Valentine’s Day
It’s Valentine’s Day and we brought you five amazing Korean dramas for you to fall in love with.
It’s Valentine’s Day and it’s always nice to have some good stories to make our hearts beat faster than normal and to fall in love with on this day. It doesn’t matter if you are alone or watching it with your special someone.
I chose five k-dramas from my top 10 list with some of the best love stories I’ve ever seen. If you’re looking for something new or planning to start diving into the k-drama world you might want to give these ones a go:
Goblin – Guardian: The Lonely and Great God
Goblin drama is the king of all dramas and your journey as a k-drama watcher won’t be completed without it. It has it all, the right amount of laughter, a huge amount of tears and all the romance needed.
The drama tells the story of a magic guardian that has lived a long life waiting for his “bride”, who, according to the prophecy, is the only one capable of breaking his curse. Destiny works in a beautiful but painful way in this story that will have you hooked from the beginning until the end.
In a world where you can rely on an app to tell you who’s in love with you from a certain distance, Love Alarm is the perfect high school cliché love triangle. The new guy in school who falls in love with the quiet girl but there’s his best friend who has got his eyes on her for a while longer.
Things go smoothly at first but love at such a young age is not that simple, not only for the main characters but for those around them as well. The drama also highlights mental health issues caused by the app and it’s a great reflection on relying so much on gadgets to live our lives. You can watch the first season on Netflix and mope with me while we wait for the second season.
The King: The Eternal Monarch
What if you ever came across a door that leads to a world very similar yet different from yours, would cross it? The king of Korea (one from a parallel universe where Korea is a country ruled by a monarch) finds this door that is somehow related to his tragic past and once he crosses it he finds the only person he wished to meet since he was a boy. Jeong Tae Eul is a police officer that the king Lee Gon has looked for everywhere.
Many mysteries and dangerous situations surround them both as they fall in love and try to find a way to be together in both worlds. If you’re looking for a drama with a lot of action and romance, The King is the one you’ve been looking for. Watch it on Netflix.
What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim
This is one of my favorite k-dramas. It’s really funny and cute. Kim Mi So has worked for Lee Young for many years and thinks it’s time to try and find a different path for herself. When she finally tells her boss about her decision he can’t accept it and tries to find a reason why she’s leaving. In his narcissist’s head, the reason is that she likes him so he begins to offer different things for her to stay, including marriage.
Kim Mi So is now trying to leave her position as his secretary and running away from his antics. This drama will make you laugh really hard and warm your heart as you watch everything fall into place between those two. You can check this drama out on VIKI.
Crash Landing On You
My first and definitely my top one k-drama of all. Crash Landing On You had me pull an all-nighter with its sixteen episodes. It’s just so good that you can help but want to know everything that happens throughout the show.
It all starts when this successful businesswoman from South Korea ends up falling from the skies after a paragliding accident in North Korean territory where Captain Ri finds her. Trying not to cause problems he promises to help her to come back home safe and sound but of course, nothing is as easy as it seems for both of them, they face a lot of difficulties and dangerous situations while they fall in love with each other.
It might appear to you that faith is being cruel making two people from enemy countries fall in love, but faith has its own way of working things out between them and it’s lovely to see it unfold. Oh, and the second leads will have you hating their guts and rooting for them.
Love, friendship and sacrifices sum up this drama that you can watch on Netflix.
I hope you have a great Valentine’s Day with these stories and love them as much as I do.
