  4. 10 K-Dramas With The “Rich/Poor” Trope That Are Actually Good Ah, the epic “rich/poor” trope in K-drama land is just one part of the formula for an entertaining and dramatic series. It’s a trope that is pretty predictable, yet we can’t help but get sucked into it. There are obviously times when dramas fail to impress and we’re left with just a cliche K-drama that lacks depth, but I’m here to reveal some K-dramas that have this popular trope and are actually pretty good. Here’s a look at 10: Boys Over Flowers In terms of the rich/poor trope, “Boys Over Flowers” is a classic. It stars Lee Min Ho as Gu Joon Pyo, a really rich high school student who is a bit of a jerk, but he ends up falling in love with the daughter of a dry cleaning store, Geum Jan Di (Ku Hye Sun). Despite being from different backgrounds, the two end up falling in love with each other and it’s pretty enjoyable to watch. There’s something about seeing a poor girl get an epic makeover and being whisked off to a sandy beach that is so romantic. Although it’s an older series, it’s one that people will re-visit time and time again. It’s got charming characters and a whole lot of good-looking rich people doing crazy rich things. It’s fun living vicariously through fictitious K-drama characters sometimes! https://www.soompi.com/article/1287063wpp/10-k-dramas-richpoor-trope-actually-good
