Geu-Rim is advised that if she recruits famous actor Ji Soo-Ho as their new radio jockey, she can keep the show afloat. The only problem is, Soo-Ho can’t work without a script, and Geu-Rim, despite her experience as an in-house script writer, isn’t the best when it comes to writing.

This leads to various ups and downs throughout the drama, including a few close calls, a trending back hug scene, and a blossoming relationship that’s sure to fill a few watching eyes with tears.

3. My ID Is Gangnam Beauty (내 아이디는 강남미인)

Despite the title, this drama doesn’t reveal the lives of the rich and wealthy Gangnam locals, but rather the youthful and beautiful Kang Mi-Rae (Im Soo-hyang).

Starting fresh in her new college shoes, Mi-Rae is regarded as one of the most beautiful girls in her department.

You should watch this drama if:

My ID is Gangnam Beauty is for all those drama fans who love a coming of age story, but one told through the eyes of someone not as confident as college kids claim to be. It also has some slow-burning character development as Mi-Rae finds her feet, uses her voice, and becomes the self-confident woman she always dreamt of being. Alongside her journey comes with a side of learning to love who she is, which is a message that many drama watchers can find inspiration from.

Also, if you love dramas with a triangle romance relationships, then this one is definitely for you. That’s including a typical “arm grab/don’t go” scene as well.

2. What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim (김비서가 왜 그럴까)

Another dip into the lives of office workers in love, What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim is a drama documented closely after the webtoon of the same name. Park Seo-Joon plays another narcissistic vice-chairman type, Lee Young-Joon, who is renowned for being insufferable to work under thanks to how highly he stands on his own pedestal.

When his patient, tolerant assistant, Kim Mi-So (Kim Min-Young) asks to step down to focus more on herself, Young-Joon makes it his prerogative to find out just what is wrong with Secretary Kim. Along the way, hilarity ensues as the two get tangled up in a corporate love affair, where Young-Joon starts to realise that you don’t really know what you have until it’s (almost) gone.

You should watch this drama if:

This drama is definitely one for the skinship lovers, and doesn’t skip over some steamy, lovey-dovey scenes between the two main leads, including a kiss in a closet. It’s also one for those who enjoy watching those “tsundere” types fall in love, and then become the vulnerable, romantic teddy bears we all know they are inside. Originally, loyal fans of the webtoon thought Park Seo-Joon wasn’t suited for the lead role, but he has since receiving overwhelming praise for his performance and good looks. What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim is a noteworthy addition to anyone’s drama faves.

Korea may be relatively new to Netflix, however, the Netflix running melodramatic tale of Mr Sunshine is no rookie addition to the suggested list. Reigning as one of the top periodic dramas for 2018, Mr Sunshine takes a step back in time to show the complexities of the first US expeditions in South Korea (also known as 신미양요). Eugene Choi (Lee Byung-Hun), a Korean-born US Marine Corps soldier who fled to America as a young slave boy, returns to his motherland on official duties, only to be conflicted as he finds out that Korea is under threat of colonisation from foreign forces. Along the way,

Eugene meets an aristocrat’s daughter (and secret patriarch who knows her way around a gun) Go Ae-Sin (Kim Tae-Ri), which makes his mission to prolong Joseon’s demise a mission to also protect those he holds close. Romantic, right?

You should watch this drama if:

If you like your dramas to be more like cinematic scale masterpieces, then Mr Sunshine should make it onto your top 2018 list. It is a visually beautiful mini-series that runs more like a well developed movie, and stops at no lengths to stun the audience into believing they’re reliving Korea in the late 1800s. So much so, that Mr Sunshine has been dubbed the series with “Hollywood-grade cinematography”. Like most historical dramas, it is also best to keep your tissues close, as this one is sure to get emotional.

Viewers may also find some comedic relief in the witty banter between Eugene, Gu Dong-Mae and Kim Hui-Song, who have a tendency to rile each other up at the best (and worst) of times.

My Top 20 Best KDramas (2017-2018)

This video is about my personal TOP 20 Best KDramas of 2017 and 2018.
I do not own any videos or musics. I used Music Videos from other YouTube channels.
PS Legend Of The Blue is more interesting than Fight For My Way but I like the Examples and Morals that drama gave so it took one step ahead from LOTBS in my view.
