These 4 Popular K-Dramas Turned Out To Be The Most Frustrating Shows The Internet Has Watched

There are plenty of K-Dramas made every year, but not all of them live up to our expectations. In fact, a lot don’t. While it’s all up to your own preferences, there will always be those few series that just push you the wrong way.

Whether it’s terrible characters, an insane plot, or a what-just-happened ending, these 4 K-Dramas were just some of the many frustrating shows that the Internet has experienced.

1. The Penthouse

The residents of Hera Palace, a luxury penthouse apartment, have many secrets and ambitions. Shim Su Ryeon (Lee Ji Ah), born into wealth, is the queen of the penthouse. Cheon Seo Jin (Kim So Yeon) does all she can to give everything to her daughter. Oh Yoon Hee (Eugene) comes from a poor family background but hopes to enter high society by becoming the queen of the penthouse. A battle for wealth, power, and prestige begins.


The Penthouse is a Makjang Drama, meaning an “Over-the-top Drama,” so, in some ways, it’s meant to be frustrating. This, of course, isn’t for everyone. This show easily gets people stressed and on the edge of their seats while sometimes not making much sense, making it quite a difficult watch.

2. Record of Youth

Sa Hye Joon (Park Bo Gum) is a smart, handsome, and kind man who happens to be a popular model. His dream is to become an actor, but he has failed in many auditions. Meanwhile, Ahn Jung Ha (Park So Dam) works as a make-up artist. Cheerful on the outside but lonely on the inside, Jung Ha relieves her stress by fangirling over idols.


Record of Youth drew people in with their amazing cast but sadly fell very short of their expectations. Many people weren’t happy with the couple’s chemistry and were extremely frustrated with how horrible the Male Lead’s father and brother were. When you can’t stand to watch the main couple, it’s impossible to watch the series.

3. Something in the Rain

Yoon Jin Ah (Son Ye Jin) is a woman in her mid-30s who doesn’t know what it’s like to date a man. Men often think she is clumsy, bland, reckless, and foolish, causing them to break up with her easily. Then, Seo Joon Hee (Jung Hae In) reappears in her life. Joon Hee is Jin Ah’s childhood friend, who used to live next door. She always remembered him as a little kid, but now, he’s a tall, masculine man! Although she is surprised by his appearance, her gut tells her that she could truly fall in love this time.


For fans, the Female Lead’s mother was so unbelievably unbearable that it caused many people to drop the series early. Other viewers had issues with the Female Lead in general and said that the entire last half of the show was awful and ridiculous.

4. Love Alarm

The mobile app Love Alarm rings when someone likes you and is within 10 meters of you. The app also shows how many people like you but doesn’t reveal specific details. Kim Jo Jo (Kim So Hyun) cheerful high school student who lives with her Aunt, as he parents died when she was young. Living there is awful for her. She doesn’t download the app as her phone isn’t new enough.

Meanwhile, Hwang Sun Oh (Song Kang) is a popular student at the same high school. He is the son of a wealthy family, but his parents don’t love him. His best friend Lee Hye Yeong (Jung Ga Ram) also goes to the same high school. Hwang Sun Oh notices that his best friend likes Kim Jo Jo and kisses her to test him. 


Almost everyone was fine with season 1, but season 2 was where things began to go downhill. Ultimately it came down to the characters not communicating with each other, which was frustrating to watch. The second season left a lot unanswered while also bringing in new points that were never delved into. It just did a 180, and both the plot and the characters weren’t the same.

What are the most frustrating kdramas that you've watched? Lemme know below!

    • Jungkook earns praise for continuously supporting good causes as he helps sell-out a bracelet from a brand supporting abandoned animals
      BTS's Jungkook is known for promoting small brands, companies as well as artists due to his enormous impact. He continues to support small brands with good purpose and cause, which thanked Jungkook in return for using his great influence and selling power.

      Many brands, such as Downy, Kombucha, Delixir, Modern Hanbok company, LamodeChief, and more, saw a massive increase in their sales after he was seen using their products. Kombucha also received the 'Brand Of the Year' Award In Korea, enjoying the huge popularity which came after him drinking it on his VLive last year. The companies also repaid to society after the massive sales by donating millions under his name.

      Recently, Jungkook was once again seen wearing the bracelet on his birthday live stream from Delixir, a brand supporting abandoned animals and dogs. The bracelet sold out in all sizes on their official site afterward due to his insane selling power.

      Delixir reposted about Jungkook selling out their "Thin Onyx Layered Bracelet," which he wore during his birthday live on their Instagram story. They also updated information about restocking.

      Original IG post Credits: @Daily_JKUpdate

      Jungkook was seen wearing the brand's items many times, causing all of them to be sold out. Due to the massive demand after JK was seen wearing their bracelet for the first time last year, Delixir opened a Twitter account and thanked Jungkook for his support.


      Jungkook is praised for his kind heart for wearing the bracelet by Delixir, a small company supporting abandoned dogs and animals. A post also trended in the Top 10 on the K-Community, Nate Pann.

      In the trending post, K-Netizens are praising Jungkook and sharing that as the company was very small, it used to donate very less donation but after he wore and sold out their bracelets after wearing it in his VLive last year, they donated millions (in Korean won) to shelters under Jungkook's name.
