The best korean dramas with poor girl rich guy cliché.

The Top Ten

1 The Heirs (2013)

Got me hooked

This is the drama that got me hooked to the K-dramas. The amazing cast and the unique concept sets it apart from other dramas and is a must watch

The first kdrama I saw.. kim woo bin is so hot I even can't... - sissy

All characters except the female lead are rich. There are multiple plots so it never gets boring. Love it when the school bully falls for the good girl.

3 My Princess (2011)
4 Secret Garden (2012)

This is by far the best rich guy poor girl drama out here. 2019 and still undefeated in my heart and trust me I've seen tons and tons of dramas but this one is still so fresh in my memory. It takes quite a few episodes to really get into the main story but I stuck with it and it was so worth it. The chemistry between the leads was incredible, and so is the entire OST. Made me laugh and cry buckets. The secondary characters also gets the spotlight in this one. It's one of the most beloved and iconic dramas in Korea, parodied and referenced countless times for a reason.

The best thing about this drama is that although they used a lot of the typical clichés, the writers did a great job with twisting things around so it had an unexpected outcome. I found it rather hard to get attached to this drama at first, but I'm so glad that I stuck with it. This is without a doubt one of my favourite romantic dramas ever!

This drama is good. But the first

Sorry for the first comments?
But the first episode the girls shows my felling turn down like I'm quite watching this drama but of you continue watching this you can learned how to seduce girls if its work good for you but if its not work bad for you anyway this drama good and romantic

8 Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (2011)

Loved Jung Il Woo here and I actually like the comedy part.

This is a cute drama. I love this drama so much. It made me laugh but it also made me cry. That's what makes it a good Kdrama

I love this kdrama! It doesn't get enough love in my opinion. I can see 2 very distinct scenes in my head when I think of this show. 1 is when he smacks an egg on his head thinking it's hardboiled and gets yolk all over him and the 2nd is the dramatic kiss scene. A great cast of characters in the leads. - NerdBunny

9 Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

22 Me Too Flower (2011)
23 Playful Kiss

I've watched this drama in full a couple *dozen times and episodes far more. One of my first dramas and I fell in love with it. Watching again NOW as I type...great romance--he doesn't want to love her but against his will falls hard!

This version of Itazura na kiss is the best one so far! I really liked the lead actor who's cold at first and gradually melted the ice in his heart and turn to be a sweet husband to Oh Ha Ni.

My fave drama

This drama is funny and quite romance please enjoy this drama

37 Prime Minister and I

It’s the best show really no kidding. The prime minister and a reporter it’s like amazing

38 Well Intended Love

I remember watching the series couple months ago. I forgot the name of the series and spent an entire day searching for it and saw it here lol

The drama starts with a "poor" girl with cancer and the only person who can save her is a rich ceo of her company. So to convince him to help her she has to chase him a few times and acept his deal!

The deal is, she must marry him, but the two of them have conditions! �'

My personal opinion: he seems cold outside but more episodes you watch you will see how he cares about this deal and her. In otherhand she is not easy to amuse with the money but she feels thankfull for him had gave her a change to live.
