@Lawyerh hihi can't recall all the ones I watch.  I feel like I'm leaving a good one out.  Ranking them is kind of hard too because of different genres so just going to list the five.


-Living Up to Your Name

-Feel Good To Die

-Are You Human Too

-Missing 9

-The Guest

@cenching i actually feel talking to you is like talking to a veteran drama watcher. I surprised you just board to kdrama recently? Haha. 


When Hallyu wave just started, I did watch few K dramas because my sister is a fan...She watched lots of Rain's dramas (no idea about the titles) and I would sat with her once in a while but those really caught my attention will made me continue following it from start to finish. There was one that called Golden Bride too....It's a "cheap" makjang K drama but mesmerizing at the same time....:lol: Another one is about fashion during olden days where The King in Frozen Flower Movie was the star....

A tough question but I love a list challenge.


1) Botton of the Ninth and Two Outs - Parts of it are a bit slow and the fashions and music choices really date the look. But thematically nothing has ever quite epitomized this point in life like 9N2O. I was new to Korean Dramas and still found the story and messages universal. 

2) Kim Sam Soon - My most rewatched drama. I still think the kiss in the restaurant during the rainstorm is one of the most romantic moments of all time. But outside of the romance, I just love listening to Sam Soon talk about what she wants out of life.

3) Marriage Not Dating - This show was a complete surprise. It's a screwball comedy in the best possible way. Ridiculous and sexy. Hilarious and a bit heartbreaking. The Mom kills me.

4) Healer - I'm impressed by how this drama stitched together a medley of tones, genres, and styles, while keeping a brisk pace and never sacrificing characterization. An action adventure romance about real issues of journalism. Swoon.

5) Another Oh Hae Young - There were a lot of strong choices for the fifth spot, but I couldn't finish this list without Eric Mun. The last few episodes do drag, but the tone, acting, and beautiful cinematography of this show stick with me.

  • Prison Playbook (2018)
  • Sassy Go Go (2015) 
  • She Was Pretty (2015) 
  • My Mister (2018)
  • The Producers (2015)     

               Honorable Mentions-

  • Wonderful Life (2005) (This was an extremely sad drama. If I didn't like the top 5 so much, I would have put it on there.)
  • Moon Lovers (2016) (I'm not sure what it is about this one. I mean, to be honest, it's middle of the road as far as dramas go. I have no clue why I couldn't stay away from it though. I almost positive I've watched this one at least three times.)
  • Live (2018) (This drama was really good, but I just failed to stay tuned in. I think it took me like 5 months to watch the entire thing on Netflix.) 
  • Mirror of The Witch (2016) (The plot was extremely slow at points. A good concept though. Thankfully they added some humor in there. It was also nice to see Yoon Shi Yoon's acting improve since leaving the military.)
  • High Kick Through The Roof (2009-2010) (If only they hadn't ended things like that...........)

We have Signal in common! I dropped Return when the main actress left: i was there only for her and lost interest in the plot at that point. 

What is HPL? 


Her private life :mrgreen: 


loved return , the revenge was done beautifully :blush:
