What Kdramas would you recommend to a Kdrama newbie?


Recommended Posts

i would recommend the following kdramas:


it is by far one of my most favorite Kdramas of all time. Angst, thriller, fantasy, romance, comedy AND slice of life all in one? sign me up! It is an extremely touching drama too, I found myself tearing up atleast twice every episode. It is a beautiful story potrayed outstandingly by the actors. It really reminds you to love yourself and your life and to treasure your friends and family.

He is Psychometric:

another one of my favorites! It is about a boy who, after facing a traumatic accident, gains psychometric powers, or the powers to read a person's mind and memories by simply touching them. He uses this power to uncover the mysteries surrounding his past. the primary reason I watched this drama was because of Jinyoung (yes I'm an ahgase ;D) but as I watched further, I just couldnt stop watching it! The story is extremely interesting and mysterious although a bit violent (it has an age restrction for a reason). I have to say, this is an extremely underrated series.

My ID is Gangnam Beauty:

With Cha Eunwoo as the male lead, who can resist this drama? It is a coming of age story about a girl who gets plastic surgery to cover her insecurities and the face she gets bullied because of. However, as soon as her life starts to become better, her past and her insecurities start coming back because now people only see her as a 'plastic monster' and criticize her for getting plastic surgery. It s a beautiful youth drama with very strong messages. A must watch!

i'll also recommend:

Nightmare Teacher

if you're in for something short, spooky and thrilling! It is a scary drama about a school, where students from a class start mysteriously disappearing after a new teacher arrives. Once they disappear, the people around them forget about them. A few students try  to uncover this chilling mystery but will they be able to protect themselves from disappearing?

I would also recommend Touch Your Heart if you're looking for a lighthearted romcom. If you loved the Sunny-Grim Reaper couple from Goblin, then you're in luck! The leads of this kdrama are Lee Dongwook and Yoo Inna. It is an extremely cute drama and funny too!

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo

The characters within this drama are elite athletes in weightlifting, swimming and rhythmic gymnastics who work hard to reach their goals in life. It covers their coming-of-age stories and relationships through hectic life.Bok-joo here is a weightlifter who is pursuing her dream of winning the gold medal but she then finds romance for the first time in her life. While she is a women who trains with heavy steel weights, she is also very feminine when it comes to relationships. To focus solely on weightlifting would jeopardize her relationship but leaving her weightlifting career for love would keep her from attaining her dreams.😍

      I just want to say a very, very big thanks to KPOPQ and @megacoffee  for this truly awesome sweatshirt you blessed me with. What a privilege to become one of yours FT, I am indeed gratified by your effort to make us all happy. These have brought so much joy and happiness. Your awesome product has warmed my heart.

      I’ve already done a lot of review in different kind of clothing but this is my first time in giving a review for sweatshirt that’s why I’m so excited! 🤩It’s just SOOOOOO STUNNING 😍😍😍! Can’t believe it’s already on my body 🤣 OH what a HAPPY DAY!!

      I am slightly obsessed with this  charcoal color and the entire fit and feel. It's pretty lightweight but soft.This sweatshirt is SUPER soft & SUPER comfortable 😍 — it is PERFECT for our weather here which is rainy season.In LOVE with this sweatshirt💜  glad I was able to get my hands on it & it was super cool!

      This is such a gorgeous  item, it's definitely one of  top bestseller of all time! My favourite thing about these sweatshirt is the length.The material is lightweight it's super soft and not too thick. I love how it is slightly longer as well, it's great to wear with leggings or jeans but also looks great with shorts in the spring/summer! I am wearing the sample size Small in these photos and although they a little bit loose but still nice and it's perfect just like how Jungkook wear it.I do prefer to size down in these (XS). I personally prefer a slightly fit ,but still perfect. It's all about how you want it to fit but I do recommend going with the smaller size 😉


      Color is very nice ,material is soft and comfy,Fitting wise good,I wanted a lil loose but I suggest buying one size smaller than your original one coz it’s men size (Just like how Jungkook wears😉 baggy and lil loose) Overall very satisfied😍👍🏻
