Hello, my name is Jamie Hartford and I am a graduate student at Korea University in Seoul, South Korea.   I have a big favor to ask those who are Japanese and Korean Drama fans.

Request;

In the dramas, the female HAS to fall in love with the male lead first 
1. Female lead likes or admires the male lead.
2. Female lead takes the initiative.

And it doesn't matter if they are the main or secondary couple!  

 

Criteria:

It has to be Korea or Japanese dramas and I am going to list all the dramas that I have watched so far

Japanese dramas 

1. Nodame Cantabile 

2. Voice love

3. Good Morning Calls

4. Overprotecting Kahoko 

5. Love Lasts Forever

6. Itazura Na Kiss Love in Tokyo 

Korean Dramas 

1. My Only One: Secondary couple: Soo Yi and Hongju

2. My Love From the Star

3. Itaewon Class 

 

Also, it must be after 2000! 

 

I have a favorite:  If it is secondary couple, would you please identified the character's name?  And it does not matter if it is weekend or week day dramas!  However IT HAS TO BE DRAMA no movies please!!!  Thank you!

 

Thank you very very much!  Your help will help with my research greatly!

try the weekend dramas: there's usually one couple which will fit your criteria. ones I can think of the top of my head

Laurel tree tailors -- basically 3 of the 4 couples, the girl chased the guy.

Ojakygo brothers - there was at least one couple; think it was the older brother where the girl liked him first.

Sons of sol pharmacy - there was one couple

boys over flowers -- the secondary couple - the one where the guy was a potter or something? there was a building she tracked down...

goong - she liked him way before he liked her.
