Top Ten Best Poor Girl Rich Guy Korean Dramas

The best korean dramas with poor girl rich guy cliché.
The Top Ten
1 The Heirs (2013)

Just finished this drama and it is by far the best poor girl rich guy cliche drama. The basic storyline is a love triangle that consists of 2 super rich 17 year old guys and a very poor 17 year old girl. It's hilarious and also great romance as well. I recommend it as this kind of cliche drama, and you should totally watch it!

It's a very good drama. At first you might get a little bored. But then it gets interesting when they return to Korea from USA. Once you start watching it then you can't stop until you finish watching the whole drama. I love it

In my opinion it's the best Korean drama about a rich boy who falls in love with a poor girl. I have watched it 7 or 8 times "believe me you will never get bored watching it.The story gets more intrestinf when a love traingle appears. P.S: the best actors play the lead roles (Park Shin-hye Lee Min-ho Kim Woo-bin)

2 Goong (2006)

My most favorite kdrama along with stairway to heaven! To-watch drama when I'm in the mood to be inlove haha I love eun hye and ji hoon!

This is the best drama.

3 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!

4 My Princess (2011)
5 Boys Over Flowers (2009)

I'm currently watching this and I legit am watching multiple dramas so I don't finish it quickly because it's too good, I want to cherish it and savour the taste of the drama. I fall in love with Lee Min Ho then hate him after one episode then love him again then hate him again and it's an endless cycle, Boys Over Flowers IS A MUST WATCH!

A classic really, heirs basically copied this but included a few differences and changed the characters a tad bit. Revolutionary in the trope of rich boy & poor girl, school bully and new girl. A must watch for any one exploring the world of Kdramas, if you haven't seen it
, go watch it haha

A classic and a must for anyone looking into Asian dramas. Rich bully of the school gets knocked down (literally) by the poor girl. He begins to fall for her.

6 The 1st Shop of Coffee Prince (2007)

Best Romantic Comedy drama. Goong Yo is amazing and his leading lady is very pretty.

7 Emergency Couple (2014)

It didn't really imply that she was poor but he was rich.

Best drama that I've watched till now!

Really love the story

8 Flower Boy Ramyun Shop (2011)

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.

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

9 Strong Woman Do Bong Soon

The best rich guy/not so rich girl romance ever. It was all about the couple and not about family members opposing because she's not worthy of him or ex-girlfiriends popping out of nowhere to ruin their relationship. It was great because the girl never felt inferior to him in anyway. I wish more kdrama would follow this example.

Wow this is my very favorite k-drama because the lead actress is very strong and the lead actor is very handsome and rich so I like the plot of this story... is very funny and very entertaining... best korean drama ever 2017

This Drama is multiple genres to me, thriller, mystery and romance. This drama helped me find my favourite genre, and the leads are an actual couple so the chemistry is there.

10 Inspiring Generation
The Contenders
11 My Secret Romance

It's a beautiful drama, I love it. It's adorable and funny and it's suck in my head. The lead characters are so perfect in so many ways

That shows was awesome. Also heartwarming.

New and looks promising

12 What's Wrong With Secretary Kim

I really love this drama as the ceo's mother isn't the type of woman who would oppose her son's relationship with a girl who isn't rich.

One of the best romantic comedies ever! My mind is still so stuck on how good it is

I think it's the best drama that I ever watch!

13 Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo

I can't put in words how beautiful this drama actually is. I've been watching so many dramas from Turkish to Japanese to Korean to German to American, but this one is by far one of the most beautiful and breathtaking dramas, which shows all sides of true love. Just amazing. I really hope the producers see the potential in the plot, actors and actresses to produce a second season. No words. Definitely underrated by no reason.

The ending is so sad. But I am looking forward to part 2. This Is the BEST drama I have watched. With the lead character wang so who is cold. Ugh my favorite

Best Korean drama I've watched and the reason why I became addicted to K dramas. Still waiting for Season 2.

14 Cinderella and four knights

One of my favourite dramas. Told the story beautifully. The female protogonist is my hero. The characters are well developed. Great show!

Its amazing! I love the girl she is funny! my favorite part in the show is when she drinks the rice wine instead of the milk on accident and gets drunk and says funny stuff wach it its amazing

Very nice story, plot, songs, and actors. The actors are very fit for their characters.

15 Dong Yi (2010)
16 Noble, My Love

21 The Legend of the Blue Sea

22 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!

I loved this drama it's one of my first drama I watched.
I just love how it started in high school with just a rejected love letter it's decently a must watch drama.

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.

23 Kill Me, Heal Me (2015)

AHH, one of my favorites! I wouldn't really consider this a poor girl, rich guy plot...but nevertheless, it's a superb drama. Characters are well-developed and the twists & turns will pull you in.

24 Master's Sun (2013)

This one of my top favorites. The acting from both leads and the twist of her having the sixth sense. Perfectly cast

Best Drama Ever... love the actors, their play is on top, everything is done perfectly.

One of my favourite
