Top 20 Best Romantic Korean Dramas of All Time (Up to 2018) (Updated)

Top 20 Best Romantic Korean Dramas of All Time

What type/genre of Korean Dramas that you like the most? Action? Comedy? Thriller? Romance? Horror? For me, I won’t watch Korean Drama that has no romance in it. So all Korean dramas that I’d like to watch should have romance. Or else I won’t watch it. Why? Because I think a drama without romance will tastes empty.

Unless action dramas which the excitement are no joke like Bad Guy. Although this drama has no romance at all, but the story is intriguing enough to make me curious and excited in each episode.

The romantic genre is one of the most common genre adopted in Korean Drama Industry, the reason behind this is simple, this genre directly touch the feeling of the viewer. Well, who doesn’t want to be loved and loving your loved one. The complete relatable emotion is one of the perk of romantic television series.

Here at Kmazing, we enjoy this genre a lil bit more than the other, and also it’s rare to see drama that have zero romance nowadays so almost all Korean drama can be categorized as romantic drama.

But even so, not all dramas that have romance will interest me. Many of Korean romantic dramas are boring, too easy to guess, the story is repeated over and over again, too many cliches, and so for.

I love Korean dramas which has a unique storyline, have many plot twists, have a great OST songs, interspersed by action would also good, and most importantly, I really like Korean dramas that focus on the love relationship between the main characters.

Why? Because it will always make my heart pounding, and wondered how it goes.

I’ve watched a lot of romantic Korean dramas, and many were very good. Romantic Korean dramas also made me addicted to continue looking for another romantic Dramas.

Here are the best Korean dramas by Watch carefully.

Let’s go!

21Plus Nine Boys (TvN, 2014) (Out from Top 20)

Plus Nine Boys tells the love story from four different men, each aged 39, 29, 19 and 9 years old. In this drama each man has a woman they like and also having various problems (although I always skip the scenes of a 9 years old child).

Honestly, in this drama Park Chorong Apink was very gorgeous and beautiful. To the extent that I crowned her as one of the “top 15 most beautiful Kpop girls of all time“.

Plus Nine Boys Park Cho Rong

The drama is played by Kim Young Kwang and Kyung Soo Jin as the main character. The drama is nice and light, very suitable to fill your boring time.

Here is the teaser :



  1. All K-drama beginner should cut they teeth on all round dramas..that’s why Coffee Prince should have included in this list

    • I actually agree with you. My first Kdrama was Descendants of the Sun. And while I totally enjoyed it, it was mostly melancholic and more dramatic than funny. The 2nd Kdrama I stumbled into was Coffee Prince. This changed the way I perceived Kdramas. I like the light, funny, charming, heart wrenching and endearing flow of the story. I think it is very balanced and all the characters were given justice and closure in the series. Because of Coffee Prince, I ended up looking for more kdramas and watched Full House. I liked it but not something I would watch over and over again. Coffee Prince to me is timeless and something I can definitely watch when I want to be inspired and motivated to look at the world in a better perspective. I am quite disappointed it didn’t make the list. My husband(an American) enjoyed it as much as I can and he rarely watched shows like this. So yes, I think Coffee Prince should have made the cut.

      • I 1000% agree with you. Coffee Prince is my favorite asian drama, among korean, japanese, taiwanese and chinese dramas…everything is great about it. I started DOTS, reached up to epi 4 and stopped, it got too predictive. Scarlet Heart is one that just finished that blew me away, and is now on par with CP for me. Lee Joon Ki is a whole other level actor. just simply amazing. I would love to see LJK and Yoon Eun Hye in a movie but preferably a drama together!!!

      • coffee prince no size..ive watched it lyk best and also I’ve watched fall in with me ..superb…I lv Korean series…

        • I totally agree with Coffee Prince, also my first drama. I actually saw Nana (Jdrama) and that was the window to Asian dramas as a whole. Back to the topic, my faves (I watch them over and over):

          Coffee Prince
          Going/Princess Hours
          My Princess
          Playful Kiss
          Secret Garden
          My Name is Kim Sam Soon
          Lie to Me
          You are Beautiful
          Personal Taste
          49 Days
          Sungkyunkwan Scandal
          Arang and the Magistrate
          The World That They Live In
          Dream High
          Me Too, Flower

          I’m sorry my list is pretty long, these are sooo good! I’ve watched so many kdramas, Tdramas, Jdramas, etc.,, I don’t discriminate, as long as it holds my attention. Just my two cents, enjoy!!!

      • your first was descendant? You must bea newbie. I have yet to watch it as I KNOW its gonna be heavy. Coffee prince is a must for K drama romance and you MUST watch the joseon era romance. Thats what actually hooked me into Kdrama.

    • I completely agree my ranking would be :
      1) Coffee Prince _ the first drama I ever watched, I’ve been watching it several times and it’s so hard to find something that good.
      2) Dating Agency : Cyrano _ as light and funny + the different missions give the drama a good rythm, you don’t have the time to get bored
      3) Kill me, Heal me _ Ji Sung is so good at playing the different personalities, from a teenage girl to an old ajusshi, he cracks me up
      4) One More Happy Ending _ I love the random goofy moments, funny from the very beginning to the end

      Honorable mention to Miss Korea, the beginning was toooo long ! but as the competiton goes on I got more into it, and actually it should have had more episodes because I want to know what happens next so bad! haha

  2. Hi Neferua,

    I didn’t watch Coffee Prince because Yoon Eun Hye Was like a man there, so i don’t like it LOL. Anyway thanks for your suggestion.

  3. But I really love coffee prince. Really really really like it. It’s actually my number one kdrama of all time. Anyway thx, i appreciate it

    • coffee prince to me was not the best….there is stairway to heaven, healer, lie to me,share my heart,scarlet heart[soo good], city hunter, my princess, my girl,heartstrings,prosecutor princes, a man called God[tho the ending was nt dat good], endless love,sungkyungkwan scandal,dream high[the ending was bad],the greatest love [bt ddnt like faces of main actors],…..[taiwanese—–just you,love now, love around, love cheque charge, fated to lve you, [um forgeting the names of atha best dramas],…..[philipino——–on the wings of love, destined hearts, infact u can neva go wrong with pinoy dramas…]

  4. It was interesting to see a male perspective on romance. Hwang Jung Min isn’t the most attractive, but he plays characters that are typically charming–and charm goes further with a girl than great looks. The movie, Ode to my Father, displays his great talent as an actor. As far as Coffee Prince goes, most girls like the idea that love transcends looks, time, everything. K-Dramas do an excellent job of delving into the emotional dynamics of the human condition.

    • Hi Shay,

      yes I think Hwang Jung Min is like Seo Hyun Jin in “Another Miss Oh”, basically Seo Hyun Jin isn’t really beautiful but in the drama she become the most attractive female character I’ve ever seen (in my opinion). Even actresses that have good looks are no match to her. I’m so in love with Oh Hae Young. Thats why I put “Another Miss Oh” as the best drama because Seo Hyun Jin was really fascinating and make the romantic relationship the best.

      Btw thanks for visiting.

  5. The korean drama which made me addicted was MY GiRL & Full House. With an awesome OST. But still I think there isn’t a better drama than Descendants of the Sun. Weirdly I watched it 3 times already (Although I can’t watch a drama twiche), but i didn’t get tired of it. Wanna watch it for the 4th time again.

    • Hi Liza,

      Thank you very much for visiting my blog. I’ve watched Swallow The Sun and My Love Eun Dong, but didn’t watch All In yet because it’s an old drama. Will try to watch it later.

      • ‘All In’ …do it sooner than later. Also an oldie but goodie for me: “Lovers”—controversial back then, but great.

        • Hi Charlotte….
          I also love the ” All In” because it was my first time I watched a kdrama and fell in love with it. it was 10 years ago but it is still like a first kiss to me. The actors are the best actors at the moment . The lead female actress is the one that acts in the ” Descendents of the Sun” and the male actor is the most successful korean actor known in american movies like Red 2,Anyway I am proud of them… The OST is amazing,RECOMMEND.

  6. No offence but you’re writing is honestly bad, it is distracting BUT you have great taste in Korean Dramas! Another Oh Hae Young is seriously one of the best dramas I’ve watched so far!

    • Why don’t you check your own grammar before you criticize others? You’re again just one of those people who can’t differentiate between ‘you’re’ and ‘your’. You’re: you are. ‘Your’ is used for possession.

    • Hi Oh Hae Young,

      yeah sorry for my bad english, I’m still learning. Writing in this blog is one of many ways for me to learn more English.

      Thanks for visiting by the way.


  8. I love It’s okay, that’s love, and Love me if you dare (this is actually Chinese drama). I agreed with you about paid channel having more interesting dramas. I watched Vampire Prosecutor which led me to my loved for OCN dramas. My taste in K-drama tend to be quirky.

  9. Would seriously doubt a list excluding “coffee prince” in this genre.If youve not seen it,you are missing one if the best TV Shows ever-Korean or otherwise.Other exclusion of “I hear your voice” is also surprising-Another gr8 show.

  10. My love from the star is a great start plus,secret garden,and then for historical or joseon era,moon embraces the sun,empress ki.

  11. Secret garden, My love from another star, moon embraces the sun, coffee prince, masters sun(though ending is little boring for 2 episodes) are the best.
    Heirs is the first korean drama i have watched and love it.
    Playfull kiss, rooftop prince, personal taste, shopping king louie, full house, kill me or heal me are also the second best korean dramas among the dramas which i watched.

    • Your list is just about the same as mine!

    6. The Great Queen Seondeok

  23. I just tried watching Another Oh Hae Young from this list and I must agree, it’s one of the best kdrama. When a drama made you laugh and cry at the same time, you know it’s a gem. While Decendents of the Sun was beautifully filmed and has a few comical relief, it is less ‘soul touching’ compared to Another Oh Hae Young, imo. Both are great dramas for sure. Some other dramas I enjoyed, in no particular order;

    Shopping King Louie
    A thousand kisses
    Queen InHyun’s man
    I Hear Your Voice
    Baby faced beauty
    I do, I do
    Delightful girl, Chun Hyang
    Prosecutor Princess
    Spring Waltz
    You’re Beautiful
    Secret Garden
    We’re Dating Now
    Princess Hours / Goong
    Bride of the Century
    Biscuit Teacher and Star Candy
    Dae Jang Geum
    Dong Yi

  24. Considering that your list was updated as of 2016-17, I’m surprised you didn’t include Goblin in the list. It is one of the best Kdramas made yet. I think it deserves the #1 spot. The acting was really superb, the story line was engaging and touching, and the most important thing IMO is that there were gold comedic moments. I’ve seen tons of Kdramas and I get very irritated with Kdramas that drag with choppy story lines, have very weak female lead characters, and have too many typical cliche’d moments.

    The only ones that I would watch again and again are:
    My Love From Another Star
    Descendants of the Sun
    Rooftop Prince
    Boys over Flowers
    Coffee Prince

    I’ve yet to watch W but I’ve heard good things.

    • Hi KDBug,

      Yeah right i didn’t include Goblin in the list. People know Goblin was one of the best Korean drama ever, but when i watch it i had different perspective.

      Maybe girls would say Goblin is a very romantic and facsinating drama because they see Gong Yoo and as you know his acting is really can make any girls fall in love immediately. But me, as a guy, i’m not watching Gong Yoo, i’m watching Kim Go Eun and somehow i didn’t feel really attracted with her, eventhough she acted great in Cheese in The Trap. But that’s just my opinion i don’t know maybe i’m the weird one here.

      Anyway thanks for visiting.

    • Whaty is the tile of the korean movie with characters like Thea who owns a company called oz, Cedrik with two characters, and Roxanne. i missed the ending of the movie aired at Channel Eleven at 11pM, please, I would appreciate your kind response. Thank you.

  25. hello, can u suggest me kdrama that u want to watch again and again heheheeh im so bored right now because i am unemployed hehehehehe

    • Hi Min,

      Have you watched all of the dramas above? I recommend you to watch them.

  38. Hi, your list is quite interesting. I agreed with some of them but not all. But I saw the difference between men and women’s taste of romantic dramas.
    I agree with you and Another miss Oh is one of the best romantic comedy series I’ve ever watched! I laughed in each episode and felt the love between the main characters more than ever. The lead actress played her role so good.
    I was also quite amazed that your choices vary from a teen drama, boys over flowers, to very romantic ones.
    The heirs was a better choice than boys over flowers; the concept of both was the same: rich boy falling in love with a poor girl. But the actings and screenwriting in The Heirs was better.
    Also, although DOTS was worth watching, I wouldn’t put it in the top 10.
    There are some dramas that definitely deserve to be in this list, but surprisingly aren’t. Maybe you still haven’t watched them.
    Lastly, your list helped me in choosing some new dramas to watch this summer. Thanks

  39. First time visiting here. Went on a crazy binge on k drama with my very first drama DOTS. Watched over 50 dramas since. What l think that have fantastic plots and superb acting:
    1. Goblin (watched 6 times, best ost)
    2. Master of the sun
    3. Legend of the blue sea(best best background music)
    5. Coffee prince
    6. Healer
    7. Personal taste
    8. City Hunter
    9. Doctor stranger
    10. Kill me heal me
    11. Tunnel (though it was a clear copy of American show “frequency’s)
    12. Reply 1988
    13. Rebel thief who stole the people

    What l think are cute shows for light hearted moods:
    1. Strong woman do boon song
    2. Love in the moon light
    3. King shopping Louie
    4. Jealousy incarnate

  40. Ummm,I can’t find the exactly website for the kdrama which is in engsub…..plzzz tell me the site I am so glad that you let me know…..

  41. Awww how could you not include “it’s okay, that’s love” on this list? It was my first kdrama and still remains a favorite.
    I actually just finished Goblin (& the two special behind the scenes special episodes), I really enjoyed it, despite its lackluster ending. I liked Goblin & Grim Reaper’s bromance more than the main romance lol

  42. Enjoyed watching the following: 🙂

Im a girl and tbh Im watching this for gong yoo and yes! he never dissapoint me, but kim go eun is really charming! even tho the drama is already end I still fall for her charm, and just like that she becomes my top 5 girl bias! shes like gong hyo jin but in her own way! anyway, I love all the casts this drama is just beautiful, I already rewatch this like 5 times and I still cry and laugh like crazy.

  47. I love your lists, somehow I ended up screenshot all of them and will decide it to watch the one that I havent seen.

    Maybe we have a similar taste, try to watch this :
    1. Twinkle twinkle- dont get turn off by the number of the episodes, the storyline is so brilliant. The girl is charming, brilliant and blunt . This is underrated drama. A hidden gem

    2. My girl- another old episode but its just so funny. The ending is the typical old ending, 3 yrs later. But it still good

    3. Pasta- just try to watch it

  48. For me…
    1. Healer
    2. Healer
    3. Healer
    before i watch healer i watched tons of Korean drama, now its only Healer that stays in my heart ❤️
    *ji chang wook my favourite actor
    charming, good looking, good singer, and nice body and the list goes on…
    Whoever didnt watch yet, please watch it…here i am still trying to get over it…

  51. Hello all. I’m late to this party as I just found this website. I loved reading everyone’s favorites and made my myself a watchlist. I have seen many of your favorites already and feel a sense of validation as many are also my favorites. I am an old lady in my 60’s, certainly not a fangirl but happily married, enjoy romantic comedies and mysteries, and appreciate skilled acting. Thanks for the guy perspective! Hadn’t given much thought to the differences in male/female perspectives. My favorite actors are Gong Yoo and Ji Sung so I have seen most of their films/series. Coffee Shop is still my favorite drama of all times however it wasn’t my first. I did not feel the chemistry between the two leads in Goblin but enjoyed it anyway and especially the bromance. I just finished watching dramas with So Ji Sub and Jo In Sing so now I am watching all of theirs. I also like Eric Mun/Moon after watching Another Oh Hae Young. Favorite actresses are Gong Hyo Jin, Jeon Ji Hyun, Seo Hyun Jin, and some of the older ones. Here is my List so far:
    1. Coffee Prince, 2. It’s Ok, That’s Love, 3. Kill Me, Heal Me, 4. Defendant, 5. My Love from Another Star, 6. The Master’s Sun, 7. Personal Taste.
    I also enjoyed Goblin, Big (lousy ending but terrific acting), Love in Trouble, Legend of the Blue Sea (so funny), Romantic Dr. Kim, Heirs, Moonlight Drawn by Clouds, Healer, etc. I started Descendants but quit watching, maybe I will try it again sometime. Watched Secret Garden but it didn’t stay with me; perhaps I should rewatch. Watchlist includes: Oh My Venus, Lie to Me, Oh My Ghostess,and many more. So many dramas, so little time!!!

    • Hi mam, I feel so relieved to see your comment.

      And I think we have pretty similar taste of Korean romantic drama as you also love Another Oh Hae Young, cuz that’s my all time favorite.

      Currently I’m watching Temperature of Love which Seo Hyun Jin is the female lead as well. She looks more beautiful, and her acting is pretty similar with Oh Hae Young (just a bit different), and I still love her.

      Thanks for visiting my site.

  52. My list :

    My love from another star – amazing acting and funny

    Reply 1988 – romance, family love, funny

    Age of youth 1&2 – all girls, everything pretty, romance here and there but basically amazing friendship goals.

    Scarlett heart rhyeo – great acting by lee joon gi and so many feels

    Oh my ghostess – fun , spice , it had a different cute sweet charm

    Cheese in the trap – park hae jin oppa!! Mysterious lonely guys and cherish and beggining of an awkward love. This drama is love.

    Though I have watched many many dramas, the above ones are the one I really admire. Some actors/actresses are really good in acting.
    Kdramas really show all the things with great precision to emotions and every day behavior.

  53. Hello, there.

    I am a big fan of k-drama. Actually, i started my addiction in 2011, when i watched my first drama, Dream High, and couldn’t help but fell in love with it. I wasn’t able to show my love to korean dramas at that time (actually nowadays also), ’cause korean world is just too alien for my friends and family—actually a few of my friends and my sister love them too, but their love is not as big as mine….. And so on, i kept trying to find another great kdramas and watched lots of them, but had to stop because of the school final exam. It was 2013-2014, the periode of time when i completely forgot about kdramas, and finally one year ago, i was able to come back in this kdrama world because of Descendants of The Sun. It brought me back, omg, and yeah i think i will be forever stuck in this world. I won’t be able to get out of this world lol~~~ since another great dramas will show up every MONTH. Great. So yeah, since i have watched soooo many dramas, in various genres, i agree that romantic comedy is my favorite. I can’t write the list of them in here, but i’m just gonna say, I AGREE THAT THE BEST ROMANTIC DRAMA IS, indeed, ANOTHER OH HAE YOUNG.

    I just love the balance of simplicity and complex of the story. Love story that everyone can relate. All the romantic and cute scenes, god it’s sooo sweet~~! The acting, omg! Seo Hyun Jin amazed me there. Comedy? I remember my stomach was hurt because i laughed too much in just one episode. And the osts. Oh My God. THE OSTS IS THE BEST EVER. My favorite is Maybe I – Roy Kim. Lots of people love Like a Dream – Ben (i love it, too~~!) but still, i prefer the slow-refreshing accoustic song.

    Nevertheless, there are lots of dramas out there that still haven’t been discovered by me. I even watched the old dramas, like in the year 2000 now, omg i know it’s just too late but what ever…
    So far, Rooftop Prince is one of the best old dramas that i’ve been watching now. The osts are great too~~! You know, the fact that i am still able to fall in love with them makes me want to find more. Now i am in the waiting of the new episode of While You Were Sleeping and Go Back Couple. I really love both of them~~~!

    I really like to try finding them more.

    kdrama addict.

  54. i Would like to recommend you guys these old Dramas, since all have recommended latest dramas with romcom themed.

    1.sorry, I love you
    2. Stair way to heaven
    3. Tree of heaven
    4. Green Rose (not sad ending)

    They are the blocker buster kdrama. All four of them were sad ending except 4th one, but the story is seriously mind blowing, heart touching n will make you cry as like you were dying. If anyone likes or could cope up with sad romance and it’s old print (since it’s little old drama), I guarantee you won’t regrets.

  55. Can’t agree more with your number 1 best drama : another oh hae young. Ah….. that’s just too good to forget… thank you btw for making this list, I try to find underrated dramas since I personally find most of the mainstream disappointment me. After reading your list, I feel like trying to watch accidental couple, marriage not dating, and i need romance 3.

    Btw, here’s dramas that makes me want to watch it over and over : another oh hae young, it’s okay it’s love (2014), bad couple (2007), witch’s romance (2014), cheese in the trap (although I hate how the story ended). I also find these interesting : romantic doctor teacher kim (2016), queen of the office (2013), protect the boss (2011). Thank you again

  56. My first Korean drama was scarlet heart rhyeo. I just can’t get over it. It was the best ofc with a heartbreaking ending… But it’s worth it completely.

  57. 1. Doctor Stranger
    3. Descendants of the Sun
    4. The heirs
    5. Doctors
    6. Healer
    7. K2
    8. City Hunter
    9. Kill me, Heal Me
    10. 49 days
    11. Heart String
    12. I hear your voice

    These are all my favorite kdramas and all Kdramas and movies with oppa lee jong suk

  58. My first Kdrama was descendants of the sun it was beautiful n romantic….2nd was scarlet, very sentimental….3rd was LO2O very cute….4th is the whirlwind girl still few episodes is left…. thinking about another one ….seeing u guys appreciate coffee Prince so much…I also want to watch it….hope I soon have a trip to Korea….as I’m loving this country…..

  59. All of these I have watched more than once. Each got some or all of the ff in them: love-hate, tall-handsome leads, rich jerks, best kisses, information, funny and some heartbreaking scenes. I love romantic dramas and I guarantee that these will make u fall in love; u wont even mind giving up your sleeping hours 🙂
