Seeking recommendations for K-Dramas 1 Month, 4 Weeks ago Karma: 35
Recently I have gotten hooked on Asia dramas, specifically Korean dramas. I would love recommendations on some good ones.The genre does not not mater so as long as it is enjoyable to watch.

Thanks.

Have you seen Secret Garden? That's one of my favorites and "Beating Again" is SUUUUUPER great. Don't limit yourself it k-drama, All the drama is awesome. Like "Fall in Love With Me" is up there too!!

I find k-dramas to be badly acted and produced in general, so I tend to watch only to support my favorite group (shinee). Out of all the series they've been in, Drinking Solo (Key) has been the one I've enjoyed the most. If the two leads aren't your cup of tea, then the students and coworkers more than make up for it.

Descendants of the Sun was aiight. If you're into romances, then go for it.

Weightlifting Fairy was cute.

No I haven't seen Secret Garden or the others you've mentioned. I will definitely check them out. What I've seen so far: Goblin, The Master's Sun, Voice and I am currently binge watching, You Who Came From The Stars. Thanks for the recommendations; and I won't limit myself.

Well if you like fantasy romance drama I'd recommend My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, Bride of the Century, and The Legend of the Blue Sea. I was going to say Goblin, but someone already said it. I'd watch some of Gong Yoo's dramas, mainly coffee prince.

Lee Min Ho also has some good ones, Heirs, Personal Preference, and so on.

I also like some of the older kdramas, like Full House, Sweet 18, Snow White, and 1% of Anything.

Also if you like kdrama I suggest you look at other asian dramas, specifically taiwanese dramas. My favorite one of all times is It Started with a Kiss, and They Kiss Again, an adaptation of the manga Itazura na Kiss, staring Ariel Lin and Joe Cheng.

Honestly I could go on and on about more dramas to watch, but I believe this is a good place to start for now.


Also all these dramas are mainly romance dramas.

Hi! I love the historical dramas. They are old but I rewatch them with pleasure.

The sun that embraces the moon.

The princess' man

Queen hyun's man is with sort of time travel like inuyasha

Empress ki is good.

Hwang Jin yi. is the same actress and based on the life of a courtesan. I cried at this one.

Heart strings

The 30 years woman.

If you are in more serious historical thing there is this, queen seon deuk it's about the first female empress. It was one of the first drama i watched but the female lead was amazing, and the plots and drama delicious, thus it is longer than the usual dramas.

Jewel in the palace is epic.



There are many more but those are my fav. Hopefully you will find something you like!
Good luck!

I enjoyed Pinocchio, Fated to Love You, Marriage Not Dating, and D-Day.

I second the recs above for Coffee Prince and Descendants of the Sun.

Thanks lilphoenixgirl.

Puritysan, I watched The Holy Pearl, it is definitely an Inuyasha knockoff. The only things I find that I did not like so much were the costumes, CGI and the overall appearance for Demons. They did not look like demons at all. In fact they just looked like they had on heavy makeup which did not differentiate them too much from humans. I loved Sesshomaru's character Wu Dao, his performance was solid. The girl who played past and future Kagome was really pretty.

There was a korean version of this it was rather odd.

Speaking of InuYasha, anyone watched The Holy Pearl? kekeke

This thread was great, I've been looking for some suggestions too.
As long as it's romcom and an asain drama - bring it on.

I also love historical dramas.

Try Scarlet Heart Ryeo and Ruler:Master of the mask. (Ruler will have its last episodes this week)
