Best Korean Dramas

The Top TenXW

1Boys Over Flowers

First drama I ever watched, loved this series! Jun Pyo was totally amazing, a great group of guys as F4. Plenty of funny, romantic, cool moments to keep you watching tillage very end!

It was the only drama I watch twice, I never watch anything twice although they might be really good but I never watched them twice except for this drama it is really awesome

I cried through most of it although the main actress could have been better I still loved it Lee MinHo was really good in it! I fell in love with this including Personal Taste

I just got done watching all of the episodes and I have to say, this was really good! :) It is the first South Korean show that I have watched and I really didn't know what to expect but the show was actually amazing!

Very funny and cute drama...

2My Love from Another Star

I love it! I really like the story. The actors are good, and I'm in love with kim so-hyun

This is shows how a person can changes one another. It shows powerful and intense emotion to others. Which made me love the series more. This is one of my top #1 K-Drama, I love the cast. Very great actress. I like the fact it made me cry, laugh, and it brought me excitement. I am a big fan of them now! The theme is very meaningful that can teach others about life. I've watched this many times, I been replaying it too. MUST WATCH, YOU'll NEVER REGRET IT.

This is an awesome K-Drama! It is actually my first time to get addicted to such thing. I so love the acting skill of Kim so-Hyun. He's a brilliant actor. On the other hand, Jun Ji-Hyun is so pretty and I can't even believe that she's already in her 30's. I love her role and she portrayed it very well. Most of all, the story is fun and at the same time heart touching. Although I'm not that satisfied with the ending because for me, I really can't consider it as a happy ending, I realized that the message of the story is so meaningful.

My favorite of all time.

What an acting guys... They have totally nailed it.. !
Great story.. Great script... Great scenes... And yes great ending!

Never really had good taste at dramas but when I accidentally watched this one and was patient for about 2 min, I was addicted immediately and finished the whole season in two days, Great script, great Story, Amazing Acting!, props to the actors and everyone that helped out, and over all that it is the best drama I have ever seen, and will ever see.

Different story, the plot flows easily and the characters really have nice chemistry.

Fun and cry a lot

4You're Beautiful

I really like YOU'RE BEAUTIFUL... The concept and even the characters.. Especially Tae Kyung and Jeremy...

Love this drama forever... It can't be beated up by any other dramas.. LOVE ALL THE LEADS!

I like this drama. I downloaded it in my laptop any I watched it whenever I wants. I like that hero and heroine. Especially that girl. And also Jeremy's acting. I never watched any Korean serials. It was my first Korean serial. I loved it very much. With the help of subtitles I understand what they express. Amazing acting.

Pleasant and unconditional love

5The Heirs

The Heirs is an on going show. It's one of the most popular show this year, thanks to the profusion of accomplished cast members and the strong plot line. The script is written by Secret Garden's screen writer, and it features abundance of talented cast such as Lee Min Ho and Park Shin Hye, the main characters. In the latest episode, it ranked really high, more than 20%. And this shows popularity keeps on increasing each week. Even before the show starts, tons of fans are waiting for this upcoming drama. The Heirs is seriously such a good drama, I'm sure it's one of the best. You wouldn't have any regret watching it. Plus, it's addictive, too!

I seriously think the Heirs is the best Korean drama. It may seem kind of awkward at first, but then the story keeps on getting better and better. And the way it ends is so beautiful. UGH... I couldn't get over this drama. All of the casts are very talented and well-known (upcoming actors/actresses). It's definitely one of the best drama in 2013 (their ratings are really good too! ). The chemistry between the main characters Kim Tan (Lee Min Ho) and Cha Eun Sang (Park Shin Hye). This drama is perf and really worth watching.

Even though this drama is new this year, it's really worth watching! It has a very interesting plot line and has abundance of talented casts. And Lee Min Ho is there. The show is still running now.

4th K-drama I've watched but best of all 4 for sure and it's 3 years older than the ones I've first watched. Got me hooked. I really think the lead actors made it what it is. Now, I really only want to watch movies with those actors in it- Park Shin Hye and Lee Min Ho... wow!

6I Hear Your Voice

This is the best drama ever. I love this couple. They are so cute together. The storyline is fast and can't be predicted as other korean drama. Just love it love it

Very well developed and (thoroughly) thought of plot; great actors/actresses that gave amazing performances & a unique storyline that makes you desperate to watch the episodes that follow! I recommend this drama to those who are just starting to watch kdramas & those who want a kdrama to compare to all the other (top) kdramas!

This is the best written, best acted, best directed, and most entertaining korean drama that I have ever watched.

Best drama ever! It makes me cry and laugh!

7Playful Kiss

Its one og the best ones I have ever seen. The hilariousness of oh ha ni obsession with beuk sung jo and the way that their relationship builds is great. You definitely get a lot of laughs from this drama. Oh ha ni and beak sung jo.

This is one of my favorite korean dramas that I had ever seem. Super funny!

This was a good adaptation of the manga version. The Korean drama adaption was certainly, in my opinion, better to watch quality-wise than the Taiwanese or Japanese versions. The Korean version showed a lot more development in the quality of how the drama was filmed, including casting and location. This drama was full of good feels. It was a little bit cliche with the storyline but if you like that stuff then this is for you! It was definitely a more chilled-back and comedic love story. The chemistry between the main actors was quite good. Acting-wise, the drama consistently shows how the main characters change throughout the story as people and also as their relationship between each other change. Also, the supporting characters in this drama fit well with the story. This wasn't too much screen time that was 'wasted' with unimportant side-characters. Overall, this drama followed a pretty cliche foundation but became very original. If you are into romantic comedies then "Playful Kiss" ...more

Awesome loved it...must watch

8Rooftop Prince

Rooftop prince is my favorite one and I can not wipe out from my head. Whenever I watch that drama, I have a feeling of something that still left in my heart.

Rooftop Prince is one of my Favourite K-Drama! Its funny & the storyline is really good

I love this story when it plays with historical and present moments. A prince from the past and a girl from the present who met on a rooftop and in the end turns out that they were destined to meet 300years ago but missed out on that opportunity. The chance comes again when they were reincarnated as lovers once more. I wanted the past prince to be with the present girl but alas u can't stop time. Would have loved more love scenes and kisses but there wasnt much. Lots of hugging though. And last but not least one of the cutest actors who can really cry and shout and play historical roles is none other than Mickey Park Yoo Chun! A charming guy I must say.

Different with another drama...good story line

9Emergency Couple

Really funny! One of the best rom com! Better watch it!

I watched it by accident really, and I'm not regretting it! It was funny, it was cute, it was a medical drama bringing you hope in renewal of love and learning from mistakes. It was another drama that deserves thumbs up from me!

Seriously loved this drama. Hot cast, great romance and even funny. I'd recommend this to everyone. I could watch it ten times over and I'm still sad it ended.

I just love song I hyo in this drama

Hands down the best KDrama I've ever watched, and I have watched more dramas than I can count. Looking forward for other dramas like this, with a more real character and story that anyone can relate to.

One of the best k-dramas out there. Realistic & original premise (hard to come by in k-dramas), believable and endearing characters, great script and portrayal by the cast. Great balance of humour and romantic elements. To top it all off, you get to listen to the cast speak in a Busan accent - love it.

The story line is rather cliche, about childhood love and friendship, but the plot is amazing, seo in guk and jeong eun ji have a really great chemistry, and they are amazing. The comedy scenes are very natural

Neither good nor bad

?Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

I love the cast and I get carried away with every scene. I have a really wonderful feeling when I see the 4th and the 8th prince. Baekhyun makes me laugh too. It pisses me off when people are criticizing IU and Baekhyun's acting. I'm not their fan or anything but I think just because they started as singers doesn't mean they don't have the potential to act. As a normal person enjoying my free time to watch I don't really see anything off with their acting as I understand what's going on. I mean why make stupid comments that are not even necessary at all. I hate it when people go and criticize the actors, like why don't you start appreciating the talent, you can't do what they can so shut up. No one asked you to watch it and surely IU and Baekhyun don't need your comments especially when you're just a hideous landwhale living in a basement. If you can't take it, go off. - rektm8

Awesome chemistry between actors and great story line. My first historical Korean drama and I do not regret it! Actors and actresses are all great and there is tension, rivalry, facts, culture, romance, comedy and heart-breaking moments! I genuinely cried several times! I still can't decide who the lead should have ended up with but the roller-coaster of emotions is worth it for this amazing drama!

Didn't expect to like this one, but it just happened! And for once here's a female lead who can save herself and fight for her rights despite being surrounded by so many men!

I love this show

12City Hunter

Although it kind of just goes on and on, it's still really exciting! If it were to be cropped down a bit more, it would be PERFECT! There's so much ACTION, love, and it's just so exciting. It's not like all those other dramas that make me cringe just as another cliche aegyo character appears and lee min ho is so good looking!

Best best drama ever it has every thing comedy romance action it is so exciting it is not boring at all you can't even sleep so much excitement and the chemistry was amazing this drama rocks I have watch boys over flowers-playful kiss-faith- coffee prince but this drama is my number 1' drama

AMAZING! So thrilling, you will never regret watching it. the action is quite handsome, the plot is very well thought out and the storyline is just mind blowing. Romance however is pretty lessened here, but the main actress, what do I say you will just fall in love with her. Always a stress reliever for me.

I loved it so much I keep on watching it several times

13Full House

Love this drama. I love the the main characters. I hope that they will be real couples in real life.

Really love this drama! Such a beautiful story with great actor and actress. It's funny yet also kinda have its own sad moment. What's best from this drama is that it really have the heartwarming feeling. This drama is probably the only drama that I wouldn't want to skip any moment of watching it even though I watched it many time before. It's my first korean drama and so far still make it one of my top list even though I watched so many other drama after that

It's a good drama. I love it really. And everything about it and stuff. To be honest, I though Dream High was going to be an option I only chose this because it was the top-picked so yeah.

This is the number 1 on my list! I've watched this drama several times. And some scenes still make me cry. Rain is really a versatile actor.

14Pinocchio

I love the story line, the thrill and I can't sleep thinking about what is next. The lead actor and actress has a chemistry. So amazing.

To say I loved this drama is an understatement. It was amaze-balls. The story-line was unique the drama and romance both had you at the edge of your seat and sometime it gets you off your seat. I loved this so much that I watched it all in 3 days. Truth be told, I even re-watched it! The drama take an excellent hit at the Pinocchio story, telling it an extremely modern and more believable way. I will be bluntly honest and say that you won't like this drama. You will absolutely fall in love with it!

My favorite drama. So much chemistry and mixed emotions in this drama. It made me cry my eyes out. Park Shin Hye and Lee Jong Suk should be couples in real life. I love dramas where there's a strong plot and when there's a guy main character. The ending was perfect and smooth.

Amazing storyline. Great chemistry between lead characters.

16Master's Sun

Nice story to watch..storyline different from others..

The best Korean drama ever! The chemistry between the leads is sizzling hot, you can see their chemistry on and off-screen and at one point, I even thought they were truly dating - they seem like in their own small world of love - a definite definite must see! The story is also unique: a girl who sees ghosts finds that touching a certain chaebol would make them disappear, so they begin a bumpy ride of self-healing and falling in love. At first I avoided this drama because of the ghosts, but after I finally decided to give it a try, the romance part sweetened a lot the horror part and the ghosts become less scary after episode 3- so even if you are not very fond of horror stories, the ones in this drama are pretty mild and can be watched by everyone - CONCLUSION: you will really REALLY regret it if you do not watch Master's Sun - this drama should be in the top 5 of your list, afterall it was the best drama of 2013, in my opinion

It was interesting the whole way through and I can see it as being one of my favourite dramas for 2013! Just watch it and you'll love it!

Wish they're off screen real couple too, I was so deep into them and when the drama ended I couldn't separate myself from the thought it was just a film;-D

17Coffee Prince

One of the best Kdramas ever. They say it's also one of the most watchable Korean dramas. Gong Yoo was amazing in it.

It completely different from usual dramas, It's Just Unique and Beautiful.. So Beautiful :3 I cried and Smiled like a fool during the show.. I'd watch it over and over.. :o

I usually avoid dramas since I think most of them are predictable and cheesy. It's also the first Korean film I've ever seen. But this one, was amazing. I loved the development of everyone's stories, their relationships/friendships (everyone basically found their perfect match), the story line, the chemistry, the love square, the acting, everything was perfect. I honestly cried at the last episode and I NEVER do that, I didn't want it to end. In my heart Coffee Prince will always be #1 and nothing will ever compare to it. I thank everyone for making this series happen, it really touched my heart. I even have it saved on my Netflix, lol.

Best chemistry between the leads!

18Love Rain

The most beautiful Korean drama that I have ever watched. The chemistry between geun suk and yoona is amazing.

Because of this series I become addicted to Korean Dramas and it's still the best for me. Actually I already watched it four times now and not tired of watching it all over again

A very, very good drama. Honestly - the plot, characters, music, comedy/drama/romance, all were great. everything combined in beautiful way. Well done. I've already watch it like 3 times and I thing I'll come back to it again in the future.

Beautiful story and actress...just watch and enjoy

19Heartstrings (You've Fallen for Me)

Love it. Lee shin am in love with you. I cried when they broke up. Felt very bad for lee shin. I loved every songs of this drama

I love it if both of them being a real couple in real life... So sweet...

It has an uplifting aura. Also because I feel like the main characters and the story line gives off an anime-like vibe into it. Not to mention the fact that the main characters have an amazing chemistry.

I love this one, because of there story and also the different background songs :))

Wow, super love store.

20Prime Minister and I

I love this really.. the prime minister's children are so cute.. and I love snsd yoona

This brings a new light to politics and brings you great laughs. Aside from that, the idea of a not-so-good-father but a very good politician is strikingly unique and the fact that he tries so hard to bring them all together is so warm. Yoona's character, Nam Dae Jeung, is so loving and caring that reflects a true beauty.

Yoona is a beautiful person and a great actress, loved than it was unpredictable

It's an alright drama
