81 Love in the Moonlight

I actually fell in love with the Crown Prince too as I watch this movie. His lines are awesome. The chemistry between the actor+actress is excellent too.

Strong chemistry of the leads

Park Bo Gum nailed his role plus Kim Yoo Jung. This tandem made the drama perfect!

Everything is PERFECT. The best Kdrama I've ever seen. Wanna watch it again and again.

82 I'm Sorry, I Love You

One of if not the most amazing korean drama I have ever seen, It truely made me feel Bipolar I cried, I laughed, I got angry etc. I TRUELY TRUELY recommend you seeing this drama you won't regret it.

One of the best tear-jerkers I've ever watched.. Such a beautiful drama.. Thinking about it now makes me wanna cry, though I haven't watched it in two years

The best drama ever

The best drama ever.I read reviews before I watched it. Most of them said that you need so much courage to watch this drama. Truley made a hole in my heart. What a story, what an actor. Please do watch it. Fall in love with life and live fully. There are so many like Danny Anderson who never had the feeling of belonginess and affection.

83 Sad Love Story

The title says it all.. If you want real drama where you cry from the start to the end then this is a must watch

This is the first drama I watched. It touched my heart. I love it. A must watch this one

Love Love this drama.

This is the mosy beautiful Korean drama, for me.
It's touching. I loe it.

84 Iris

This should be the best action film in the world and neither iris 2 or James bond can beat Iris.

If you are really corny you won't probably like it at the beggining but it is really amazing! The plot is well written and the acting is believable. If you are looking for something different to watch definitely this should be your first choice

The best action movie ever. Should be #1 on the list.

88 The Girl Who Can See Smells

All the actors were excellent and perfect for their roles. Very unique and spellbinding story. You'll be on the edge of your seat every minute. Well worth watching. I'll never forget this one (even though I usually don't care for murder mysteries).

I loved this drama sosososooo much! It has everything; drama, mysteries, action, supernatural and romance and the main roles are played so well. Also, there isn't a weak and whiny female lead which I absolutely hate. This would definitely be in my top 5 I've ever watched. Also it made me fall in love with a serial killer...

I loved all the storyline. Nice chemistry between them. And one of the handsomest villains ever

So cute drama I recommend you to watch it!

89 Discovery of Romance

Loved the storyline. Kept me interested and wanting more.

90 Witch's Romance

One of the Korean dramas which I have watched again and again. It should be at least in the Top 20 list. I'm started to fall in love with Park Seo Joon from this drama. It is highly recommended to watch.

I totally enjoyed watching this. Loved the age difference. What a beautiful woman.

This was a great drama, would recommend if you like noona romances

91 Empress Ki

The best historical romance drama in the world!

Why this not more popular? It has everything you could want in a drama! Sexy female lead, a bunch of sexy male leads, backstabbing, plotting, crying (so much crying), death, sword play (both kinds *wink*), Taltal (which no other K drama has lol), great character dynamics, more backstabbing and deception, CROSS DRESSING, babies, more death, VENGEANCE, cries, poker faces while they plot your death, tactics, war, horsies, that one creepy guy who wants female lead but can't have her so will settle for KILLING HER to have her life because he cannot have her heart (no spoilers there, promise), no less than FOUR love interest, and I can't even list anything.

I just love the two-faced inner court plotting of this show. I also love the first pre-palace arc where Sung Nyang is a bow wielding badass (but then she becomes a master poker face-wielding badass in the palace too so that's also awesome). I just can't describe how great this show is. Just go watch it now.

This is a very spectacular drama, with a lot of great and creative politic ways. Very great past, and love the romance hiding within all of them. All that I do not like is the ending where the Emperor dies within the last five minutes of the whole series after fifty episodes.

Why is this bomb ass drama at #91? This drama is one of the best of THE BEST historical/action dramas out here, and the romance is just so heart melting that I wish I was the main female lead sometimes lol. Honestly it's so good! Because there is a solid plot, good camera work, props are beautiful and let's not forget the great actors. Well any drama Ha Ji Won is in always has to be the best and plus there's Ji Chang Wook (eye candy yasss! ). Trust me when you first watch it 50 episodes may sound like a lot, but when you get hooked on the first 0.0005 seconds you'll realise 50 episodes is not enough. Go ahead join the hype and watch Empress Ki ✌🏻 I promise it will be worth it.

93 EXO Next Door

To Exo-L's, Exo Next Door would probably be enjoying to fans to Exo. Because of the idea and plot of a normal-ish girl meeting Exo, falling in love and creating a love triangle with D.O. and Chanyeol. However, I'm not trying to be offensive, but the acting of some of the characters could be better. To me, I thought the only reason some/or one of the members of Exo, I'm not naming names, isn't the best actor. That's what I've perceived so far from his acting career, which probably mainly got him roles OR cameos because of his popularity as an idol. I'm just saying Exo Next Door is a sweet story, but some character acting could have been much better. Not all idol-turn-actors can be both an amazing singer/dancer,etc... and an incredible actor. This is my opinion, so lay off if you have any hate remarks on what I think.

This is a cliche story, but since yeah, it's a web drama, it's okay.

Kind of cliche but still very good

This is the cutest drama...i ever seen..

94 Bride of the Century

The Best Drama Ever! I couldn't stop watching it! It was so interesting (sometimes scary) and the acting of the main characters was so good! It was really original and usually with other dramas you
Can get really bored and tired of it but that did not happen with this one it was just so good and the main actress is so beautiful same with lee hong ki! Just
Amazing watch it!

It's kinda creepy since there is a spirit part but the chemistry is amazing it is really positive makes you cry and laugh and is really interesting.

This drama is the BEST DRAMA EVER! It is so good! The acting is so realistic and it can just make you addicted. For all new drama watchers this definitely a good pick. The perfect mixture of comedy and romance. Ugh... too many words to express...

Even of u don't like fantasy still watch this and u won't regret it for a minute..i guarantee it..definitely make sure to watch this..or u will b missing on really good love strory

96 Jumong

The greatest of all

This is the best Korean drama I've ever seen. Great story, inspiring characters. Jumong is exceptional and the 2 ladies seo so no and yesoya for their love and sacrifices are both commendable. This is the only drama that made my non-kdrama-watcher father watch until early morning. It took me months to watch another drama because I can't move on from its effect on me. This really moved me.

I wonder why Jumong is 84th. It's the best drama I've ever watched. Song Il Gook is also my favourite. The story is very detailed is realistic. I am moved by it. Please it will be a terrible mistake to ignore this series.

Jumong is really good a must watch drama

97 Bridal Mask

Best drama ever. At the top of my favorites list -- so beautiful and tragic, but so well done. (I must give a warning though--there are some torture scenes that I thought could have been a little less severe and still have been believable.)Sorry to the drama team, but I still loved this series.

Lee gangto is awesome

Best Korean drama forever

So sad but good

98 You Who Came from the Star

My number one drama on the list! This one was like eating a cake - piece by piece with the sweetness extending more to each next episode! This drama was so amazing, I drained all my tears and used all tissue box almost. Very memorable! One of those dramas that won't go away from your head for a long, long time. The storyline is unique, and it's a total emotional rollercoaster for sure! There is nothing your would miss from this one, nothing you would want to add ether. This one is a masterpiece drama to not be neglected! This drama is SPECTACULAR!

Perfect for starting k-dramas... Hero and heroine are eye candies... Just can't resist staring at them. Superb comedy between male and female leads... Beautifully captured expressions of love, pain and loss... Excellent storyline. A must watch. On my list always. It always lifts up my mood every I see...

Good looking actors and great chemistry... But what steals the show is the amazing story. cheon song yi, the lead actress us just adorable in every frame and do min Jon, the lead actor is super cute... An enjoyable watch

Best drama ever..u will want a love like this

100 She Was Pretty

I haven't the slightest clue on how this isn't in the top 10! This drama is amazing and honestly made me laugh out loud. I've never left a review on something but I can try to tell you that this was one of the first love triangles where it actually took me a while to decided where I stood. There are some cute moments you just never get out of your head and this show just puts a big smile on my face

It was so hilarious! I've never laughed so much watching a Korean drama. Also I really liked the fact that there was no unnecessary drama and all. No one died, there was no blackmailing and no shouting. In the last episodes the main couple were so cute together. It was perfect.

This drama was really nice. I liked that the main character didn't change after the makeover and even went back to how she was at first in the end. The romance was fine, even though Siwon gave me a real bad second lead syndrome and I loved him a lot more than the main guy lol

The story itself tells... the cast was very good... the ost... nothing is wasted...
