In in the world of Korean dramas is there anything our male lead oppas can’t do?? They can jump from one building to another, they can be unrealistically rich CEOs, they can fight 25 people at once (and win), they can sing, they can dance, they can see future, they hear your thoughts, they can go back in time, they are crazzzy smart and the list goes on…
But they are also big dum-dums when it comes to love.
This is the recommendation of Kdramas in which male leads don’t even realise that they are in love.
All of these dramas are really amazing in my very biased opinion and you should definitely watch them if you haven’t already.
Brace yourself for a fluff fest!
1. Touch your heart:
A Famous (really cute) actress ends up working as the secretary of a (serious) lawyer to gain experience for her next role.
Dong Wook’s character is probably the most adorable idiot on this list. He is crazy smart when it comes to the law, and equally thick when it comes to sarcasm and women’s heart. Watch this to add 10 years to your life.
2. Weightlifting fairy Kim Bok Joo:
Story of a female weightlifter full of swag and a male swimmer who can’t pronounce swaaeeeg.
This is friends to lover trope at the most realistic form a Kdrama could be. WLFKBJ is a campus romance drama we all need.
3. She was pretty:
They were childhood friends – she was a pretty girl and he was a fat kid who got bullied a lot. They meet again years later and now, he is her hot boss and she is not pretty anymore. So she lies about her identity and he doesn’t recognise her.
As controversial as this trope is. The story is surprisingly not. The drama has no bad characters and reminds me so much of Ugly Betty as it’s based in a magazine world. It has one of the best female friendship and a very serious second lead syndrome. The female mc is so refreshing played by Hwang Jung-eum.
Honestly, if this doesn’t convince you…watch it for Choi Siwon and Park Seo Joon.
4. What’s wrong with secretary Kim
Narcissistic boss can’t live without his secretary.
Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young’s chemistry in What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim was off the charts, so much so that everyone was convinced that they were really dating (I would not mind it one bit). Park Seo Joon is hilarious and incredibly hot in this one. If you need more convincing their kissing scene has over 325 million views on youtube (I would link but YT has age restriction on the video, haha.)
5. Clean with passion for now
Man who has a fear of germs and woman who doesn’t care about cleanliness.
The guy’s fear of germs is another level where he can’t even let anyone touch him let alone think about a relationship. This is a very adorable drama with very cute leads.
6. My love from the star
He is an alien who can’t wait to go back to his planet, she is a famous actress who lives next door.
This is a gem that people forgot about and I want everyone to talk about this more often. Kim Soo Hyun and Jeon Ji Hyeon are in it. The plot is good, the chemistry is amazing, their love story is what I love the most about kdramas.
Watch this even if you have seen it all those years ago cause it is still a classic.
7. Because this is my first life
He owns a home, she doesn’t.
Honestly, this drama is a masterpiece. It is very entertaining, very simple and very lovely. Watch this… It will water your crops, clear your skin and make you crave for more.
8. Oh my ghostess
A shy woman is possessed by a thirsty virgin ghost.
This is horror (very light), comedy, romance. Park Bo Young is just so cute. The entire plot is ridiculous but highly entertaining. It’s a kitchen romance so keep food ready before hitting the play button.
9. Suspicious Partner
A trainee prosecutor becomes a murder suspect.
This is a crime, law, romance drama. My love Ji Chang Wook is in it. Ji Chang Wook plays a snobby and stern lawyer Noh Ji Wook who doesn’t want to fall in love and the female lead (Nam Ji Hyun) very understandably fall in love with him… All this but with murder and other crimes.
Alright. That’s it, folks! I can probably add so much more here but that’s it for now. See you again next time. Hit me up if you need recommendations or talk about dramas in general.
