What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim
Catch the glamorous and adorable pair-up of Park Seo Joon and Park Min Young in this romantic comedy which will surely put most workplace romance pairings to shame!
Park Seo Joon takes on an adorable narcissistic rendition of the self-absorbed boss who eventually realizes that love is something which can’t be solved by his nimble mind. What’s Wrong with Secretary Kim shows us his adventure to keep the only woman who can understand him by his side – aka his secretary for nine years, Kim Mi So, played by Park Min Young.
However, he figures out along the way that Mi So is more than just a secretary to him – she was someone who he’d want to cherish every day and call as his wife.
My ID is Gangnam Beauty
If you’re looking for a soft and fluffy K-Drama which is also socially relevant, then we highly recommend that you put My ID is Gangnam Beauty in your watch list! Based on the popular webtoon of the same name, the drama reminded us of society’s toxic standards on beauty right from the very start through the story of Kang Mi Rae, who had been victimized by society’s unfair system herself.
My ID is Gangnam Beauty easily made Im Soo Hyang, who played Kang Mi Rae, and ASTRO’s Cha Eun Woo, who played her dashing yet intimidating leading man Do Kyungseok, the nation’s sweethearts as they showcased both their individual charms and chemistry as a loveteam.
While You Were Sleeping
Have you ever dreamed about what it would be like to see the future? Well, this supernatural-themed drama gives you a glimpse of that experience through Lee Jong Suk, Bae Suzy, and – the actor who became one of the best and most lovable second leads ever — Jung Hae In.
While You Were Sleeping boasts of not only an endearing loveteam in Jong Suk and Suzy, but also an overall well-sketched and utilized cast as well.
It has a well-narrated plot and unique storyline which revolves around Nam Hong Joo (Bae Suzy), a former reporter who gets visions through her dreams of terrible incidents that will happen in the future. She meets a newbie prosecutor and a policeman, who somehow get the same supernatural ability as her, and they join forces to prevent these visions to actually take place in real life.
Strong Woman Do Bong Soon
A rich CEO with a problematic family who – gasp! – isn’t cold-hearted and mean to the story’s leading lady? A leading lady who’s strong and always ready to fight? Only Park Hyung Sik’s Ahn Min Hyuk and Park Bo Young’s Do Bong Soon can pull that off with the fantasy rom-com Strong Woman Do Bong Soon!
Strong Woman Do Bong Soon reverses the damsel-in-distress trope by employing a storyline with the lady protecting the knight. Do Bong Soon, who is born with superhuman strength, meets Ahn Min Hyuk, the CEO of the popular gaming company Ainsoft – which also happens to be the company Bong Soon is dying to work for. He offers her a job at his company – not as a game developer as she hoped for, but as his personal bodyguard.
She takes on the challenge and does her best to catch the culprit behind the death threats that Min Hyuk had been receiving. However, Bong Soon gets caught in a darker and more dangerous situation at the same time after she gets involved in what seems to be the scariest and most horrifying string of events to ever happen in her town.
Where Stars Land (Fox Bride Star)
This new and ongoing K-Drama starring Lee Je Hoon and Chae Soo Bin had been gaining a lot of attention lately thanks to its storyline which seems almost too close to real life.
Where Stars Land follows the story of two people who work diligently at Incheon International Airport, where people who come from different parts of the world and different walks of life land. Lee Je Hoon plays the character of Lee Soo Yeon, who graduated from one of Korea’s most prestigious universities, KAIST or the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology.
