The world of kdrama introduced me to a whole new dimension of undiscovered comedy, romance and fantasy.
1. Strong Girl Bo Dong Soon
Our lead heroine here, Park Bo Young playing the role of Do Bong Soon has superhuman strength by birth. There are innumerable moments of lighthearted comedy in this 16 episode series. However, the main focus is on the chemistry between our strong girl and a CEO aka handsome and charming Park Hyun Sik who playes the role of Ahn Min Hyuk. The aigo moments are strong with this one. Watch out for the supporting character Ji Soo as Guk Doo, sending some serious officer vibes. The story revolves around Do Bong Soon being hired as a bodyguard by Ahn Min Hyuk while her childhood friend Guk Doo investigates a serial killing that happens in her neighbourhood. The series of events unfold beautifully. Here's a prior warning though, "You might end up falling in love with Park Hyun Sik".
2. W: Two Worlds
The visual amazement one can get from the series is unmatched. Lee Jong Suk as a comic book character Kang Chul who is a millionaire in the comic book world meets our female lead Han Hyo Jo who plays Oh yeon Jo, the daughter of the comic book writer, Kim Eui Sang. The series involves a lot of comic turning real visuals alongside some inter world travel. The romantic involvement between the leads is something to watch out for. Watch out for some heart wrenching sequences alongside Lee Jong Suk being a cute and adorable boyfriend.
3. Legend of the Blue Sea
Lee Min Ho must be really good at this, for real. The actor pulls off any fantasy romance with so much ease. He plays a scamster Heo Joon Jae who falls in love with a mermaid, Se Hwa played by Jun Ji Hyun. Their entanglement and the resulting romance is a whole new level of cute. The historical flashbacks are a bonus which gives us the story from a different perspective. You may or may not fall in love with the series as a whole.
4. Suspicious Partner
Suspicious Partner has charm unlike any other drama. Ji Chang Wook is the handsome yet ruthless prosecutor Nok Ji Wook and Nam Ji Hyun is Eun Bong Hee. Eun Bong Hee is wrongly accused of a murder she didnt commit. Noh Ji Wook jumps in to save the day. Choe Tae Joo as Ji Eun Hyuk gives us some reasons to feel bad for him yet also hate him for a while. Kwon Na Ra as Cha Yoo Jung is a prosecutor who also happens to be Noh Ji Wook's ex girlfriend. There is some case solving, getting justice alongside some moments that give us a reason to smile. Warning: You will fall for Ji Chang Wook no matter what!
5. My Love from the Stars
Jun Ji Hyun as popular actress Cheon Song Yi charms us with her cute yet dumb attitude. Kim Soo Hyun meanwhile is, wait for it, an alien who has been on earth for 400 years now. The duo offers some heart warming sequences in the series which ranges from lame comedy, strange happenings, cheesy dialogues and amazing visual. Not to mention, Park Hae JIn serves some looks in this one. Watch the series to fall in love with the idea of falling in love.
