Top 10 Best Romantic Comedy Korean Dramas

The romantic comedy genre is one of the most popular genres among the Korean dramas! From the cheesy oppas, cute girls, uptight chaebol heir leads, the Korean dramas are the best to recommend to someone who likes to see romance with a funny backdrop.
The Top Ten
1 My Love from Star

Everything in this drama perfectly fits! The storyline is well-written and carried out. Details of acting in each scene touch the hearts of viewers.

And of course, all the cast in this drama is perfect in their roles! Main characters Kim So Hyun and Jeon Ji Hyun have great chemistry and outstanding acting skills that match well with each other. They have added little details to their interactions in the acting that make every moment look so real and draw us into the drama.

Best K-drama ever for me! They really should continue to do other seasons of this drama with the same cast team, like Twilight, before the US ABC does it. I am sure they will have a season 2 and so on if they are successful with the remake of this drama in the USA.

2 Playful Kiss

It's a story that never fails to hit you. You can watch this drama a billion times and still love it. It shows that love goes beyond even your own expectations. It depicts the characters' progression of love and the gradual, complete acceptance of one another.

At times, you become angry at their coldness or stupidity, but again, it shows you that when you're in love, you can become a fool. I love this story. I laughed a lot, cried, and at times even punched a pillow. The actors did an amazing job in this adaptation as well.

I felt like I was seeing the manga characters come to life. And Kim Hyun Joong is absolutely handsome and dreamy. Perfect cast, portrayal, and story. Definitely recommend this!

3 Boys Before Flowers

This is one of the first K-dramas I watched. It's a classic, and I enjoyed watching it, but I feel it might be a bit overrated compared to "My Love from the Star," "Coffee Prince," "Pinocchio," or "Secret Garden."

For me, the pace was a bit too slow, and I think the story would have been better if it had been condensed into fewer episodes. However, this teen drama is a guilty pleasure. The actors are gorgeous, and the acting is not half bad, although I was a bit disappointed with the leading lady and the second male lead.

In conclusion, this drama is sappy and predictable, but deep down, you kind of love it for exactly that reason.

4 Secret Garden

One of the most romantic dramas with beautiful action sequences, I've watched this one three times. You should watch this. Some scenes really make us cry, especially when the hero treats the heroine at her worst.

But this is a highlight of this drama. The opening is amazing. The heroine is almost one of the most famous actresses in Korean drama as well as movies. It's funny and interesting.

If you look at any website, television, or international ratings for the best Korean dramas like the top ten and top twenty, there may be some changes and mismatches. But in all ratings, you can definitely find three dramas always placed or listed as best on all websites, televisions, and other sources. One is Full House, which has one of the highest ratings ever in Korean drama. The second one is Coffee Prince, and the third one is Secret Garden. Then, for sure, it must attract all kinds of people. Please watch it and recommend people to watch it.

5 The Heirs

I'm a huge fan of romantic comedies, I guess because they depict what we want to experience in real life. Heirs, for now, is my best drama or movie, Hollywood movies included. All the characters did a great job.

I especially admired Kim Woo Bin's great acting, but best of all was the real chemistry between Min Ho and Park Shin Hye. I've watched both of them in other dramas. They were good but not real. Heirs is the most real-life portrayal of love I've watched.

My Love from the Stars is also very good, but the chemistry between the actors isn't as real as in Heirs, for me. I think Lee Min Ho has the potential to be one of the greatest actors of our time. I look forward to watching him in Gangnam. Can't remember the full title.

Thank you (one of the many Korean words I've learned from watching dramas).

6 Pinocchio

One of the best dramas that I've watched. There's not a single boring episode or dull scene. I can't sleep thinking about what will happen at the end of the drama.

The chemistry between the two mains is very palpable. You would sink your teeth into this drama after getting past the first episode, which is great because it's not boring like other dramas. The plot is not cliché, and the casting is perfect.

Pinocchio is not just another Korean drama. The story is very well-written. Not a single episode is boring, and it has some very good characters.

The actors have played their roles perfectly. If you are looking for some sappy romance, then this might not be the one for you. But if you appreciate a drama with a good storyline, then this is definitely the one you shouldn't miss. Lee Jong Suk and Park Shin Hye have done a great job.

7 You Are Beautiful

This is one of my Top 5 dramas of all time! The soundtrack is so beautiful that I added some songs to my playlist. Park Shin Hye is amazing as a religious girl pretending to be a rocker dude. And Jang Keun Suk is so beautiful. He makes eyeliner look good too. You'll get major Second Lead Syndrome, and even Third Lead Syndrome, if that's a thing. I was JKS all the way!

If you've ever seen a drama where a girl pretends to be a guy, you know the secret will eventually come out. What happens after each person discovers the truth only leads to further complications in poor Go Mi Nam's life (Park Shin Hye). This is a must-see for all ages, unless you're younger than three.

8 Healer

This is one of the best dramas I've ever watched. Hats off to the person who came up with the plot and the whole crew for making this drama so wonderful. Ji Chang-wook's acting skills were so on point, including Park Min Young's unbelievable character. She was a bubbly girl regardless of the problems she had to go through in her life.

At first, I got very confused because everyone's life was related to one another. But as I went on watching the remaining episodes, the puzzles slowly started to be in their right places. The whole drama was fantastic.

But the one thing that really got me into watching this drama was the OST. The soundtracks of this drama are up to the mark, and the best one is the theme song that's played at the beginning. My heart still skips a beat when I listen to that song. So, altogether, this drama gets a big thumbs up and it's highly recommended.

9 Descendants of The Sun

This drama is awesome! All the cast - male, female, main, secondary lead, storyline, locations, etc. - is excellent. You will wriggle when you watch the main lead's love line, which means their chemistry is so good that the audience will feel butterflies in their stomach. Also, the secondary lead's love line will make you fall for the characters.

I've watched a lot of dramas. So far, this is the only drama where both the main and secondary lead characters have almost the same level of lovey-dovey love line. The scriptwriters have definitely done a great job on the dialogues and everything! As well as the directors, D.O.P., cameramen, and all the crew for producing such good artwork for the audience. This drama is definitely worth watching, and you surely won't be bored or regret watching it.

10 City Hunter

This drama will forever be my number 1 most favorite drama ever. The plot, the action scenes, the sweet low-key romance - everything was perfect. Lee Min Ho had never been hotter than in this drama, giving one of his best performances as an actor.

The only thing that ticked me off during this drama was during the ending episodes when the romance became way too low-key, and it wasn't even properly implied whether the main couple had ended up with each other in the end, apart from the lack of kissing scenes. Nevertheless, this drama is a MUST-WATCH for every action-romance Korean drama fan.

The Contenders
11 Coffee Prince

If you ask me, I will give second place to this drama. My first choice is going to be "Full House." I am not sure why people have given this drama sixth place. For the heroine's acting and the hero's looks alone, this drama must be watched.

Gong Yoo is my favorite actor, and he always does his work superbly, especially in this drama. Almost all Korean dramas portray the hero's role as very rich and unimaginable, but this character was nice, enjoyable, and relatable.

Even more, this drama left some important and beautiful messages beyond love. The heroine is a really great actor and has received a lot of awards as well. If anyone misses this drama, you're definitely going to miss a good Korean drama. I am sure.

12 It's Okay, That's Love

I am completely mesmerized by this show. One of the most underrated shows, I believe. I totally fell in love with Jo In-sung and Gong Hyo Jin after watching the show.

The suspense, drama, and emotions in this one are spot on. I can't decide who was the best as everyone seems to have done an amazing job. And what do I even say about the OST? It's so good and perfectly matches the situations that they get stuck in your head. Breaking the cliches, this drama will surely be difficult to top for me. Highly recommended.

13 Master's Sun

This drama kept me on the edge of my seat for every single episode. Who could think of such a distinctive, unique storyline? I was completely blown away by the script and screenplay.

Kudos to the director and the story-writing team. Needless to say about the lead pair - "So Ji Sub and Gong Hyo Jin," of course. Their chemistry is out of this world. Extraordinary. Amazing. Adorable. I'm searching for every word in the dictionary to explain. They are undoubtedly a cute on-screen couple in K-Drama land.

I like this drama very much and have already watched it an 'n' number of times. Believe me, this drama is really worth watching. It's total fun. I love it!

14 I Can Hear Your Voice

The first few episodes weren't that special for me, but when it reached episodes 8 and 9, the story became gripping and so thrilling that you can't stop. As the show progresses, you can see how all the characters develop so much, even minor characters like the judge or Attorney Shin. This is definitely a drama with a lot of depth.

I think the main theme is not your typical love or romance that we expect from K-dramas. Rather, it teaches us the value of truth, the importance of empathy, and what it means to be human. It makes you think about life and relationships between people from a different, positive perspective.

The best part is that the messages are not forced upon the viewers but are introduced gradually and subtly. I wouldn't say this is the most exciting drama I've seen (you can't beat Healer when it comes to action, suspense, and romance!), but this is a drama that has values that go beyond just entertaining the viewers, and I think that makes it much more precious.

15 Heartstrings

At first, I felt that this drama was just going to be slow and dull. But gradually, as the story progressed, it became more than a delight to watch such a lovely drama. This is more so because Lee Shin is the perfect boyfriend out there: he is supportive, intuitive, considerate, sacrificing, caring, a sweetheart, handsome, affectionate - the list goes on.

This drama gives you the perfect cutesy moments between the lovebirds. It makes you cry. It makes you laugh. And the music is soulful. Some songs go straight to your heart. It's pure and innocent.

All in all, a beautiful drama to watch.

(PS: Jung Yonghwa and Park Shinhye are so cute together, and this drama also made me a Yonghwa fan. He is a really talented singer and guitarist.)

16 Goong (Princess Hours)

This drama introduced me to the very beautiful and talented actress Yoon Eun Hye, my most favorite K-drama actress. So, this drama is very special to me. There were times when I felt the plot was dragging, but aside from that, you are going to love this drama.

This is especially true because of the cute, bubbly, and very endearing personality of the princess, played by Yoon Eun Hye, who is the heart and soul of this drama. Watch it for her, and I am sure you will fall in love with her.

This drama depicts an era where the monarchy exists alongside modern society.

This drama may start out a little weird at first, but don't stop there. It gets better every single second. I loved the chemistry between the female and male leads. The plot is really interesting, mixed in with a little historical twist. Sometimes you really do feel like jumping right off the couch into the screen and strangling Yul's mom. She's just the perfect evil character. The female lead is really adorable and quirky. Her actions are tremendously hilarious. Sometimes she depicts the character so well that, when she does something embarrassing, you'll feel embarrassed yourself.

Lee Shin may be a little cold at first, but inside he's a really sweet guy. Yul is full of calm, warmth, and friendliness - the polar opposite of Lee Shin, who is the male version of Shin Chae Kyung. Well, they do say that opposites attract, no?

This drama is one that tells a tale of love, monarchy, politics, dreams, friendship, vengeance, and a whole lot of surprises.

17 Flower Boys Next Door

The plot was very different from the dramas I usually watch. Enrique is really the most adorable thing on the planet. I kind of felt bad for the second lead, like I always do in almost every drama, but I fully support the canon because they are very cute together.

I was slightly annoyed by Park Shin Hye's character when she kept pushing Enrique away. The second pairing was also great, as they seemed to be made for each other. Loved it!

This show is so good and funny. It never got boring and was very, very funny. The main male character was so funny. I loved his personality.

It ended really well, not leaving you wondering what happened to the other characters in the show.

18 Fated to Love You

I really like this Korean drama. When I started watching the first episode, I really got hooked on it. I even sleep very late just to watch it. I have been watching it for 2 straight days.

The actors really portrayed their roles very well. I really love Jang Hyuk and Jang Nara. The story is really tear-jerking. I never cried this much when watching dramas. It's like a rollercoaster ride. I was sobbing at certain parts of the drama, then laughing. The feeling is very overwhelming.

To the point that, after finishing the episode, I Googled the actors. I wish they will have another comedy-romance drama together. I love Lee Gun because he is so funny, but he loves Mi Young very much. More movies and dramas for both of you!

19 Blood

Ahn Jae Hyun is so perfect, I'm speechless about everything. Blood is something you must absolutely take with you on your journey. The end might be a bit off because it's confusing, but remembering everything, you can just come up with your own conclusion on why it was like that and continue loving them.

It's heartwarming, and everything just made me happy and brought me to tears. Ahn Jae Hyun is so good-looking, so consider watching this.

It's one of those dramas where at first you find it slow, but after 3 episodes, you just get hooked. I am just in love with the lead pair, and they performed their characters really well. Must watch.

20 Rooftop Prince

A love that transcends hundreds and hundreds of years in time. And a king at that. Too cliché? Then how about this: this king is witty, amusing, and smart and finds out that the people he's met so far in the contemporary period are reincarnations of the people related to him within his time.

This hint is a step toward the death of an unknown loved one within his time - perhaps the trigger to everything and the reason why he can meet his lover only in a different time period. Heart-wrenching/cleansing. Bittersweet.

21 Marriage, Not Dating

Marriage, Not Dating was one of the funniest K-dramas I've ever watched. The best thing was that it never forgot it was a comedy. It had serious notes and drama, but it was always well-blended, and never far behind was the humor.

Not to mention, you have to watch it for the splendid Han Groo, who does an excellent job playing a 'noona'. I was immensely surprised to find out she was only 22. This drama was a cute, heartwarming, soul-wrenching, and hysterical look at love, and you shouldn't miss it.

It's awesome! It made me cry, laugh, and be angry all at the same time. I also think that the lead actors are very attractive. It's nice to watch a series that has attractive actors, in my opinion.

Nevertheless, it has a great story plot, and I would recommend it to you people!

22 A Gentleman's Dignity

A Gentleman's Dignity is an amazing drama. I just finished it recently, and whoever the writer is, it is amazingly written. It has everything - heartbreaks, love, and comedy - all packed together.

After I finished one episode, I couldn't stop myself from watching the next. It's literally the best of all the dramas I've watched. The chemistry between each character is breathtaking.

And since the story revolves around the lives of four couples facing completely different relationship problems, it never becomes boring. It is a MUST-watch.

23 Dream High

Dream High is definitely up there on my list of my top three favorite K-Dramas. It has at least one aspect anybody can relate to. There's falling into unrequited love, being self-conscious about your body, jealousy, being so dedicated to something that you risk your health to accomplish it, and so much more.

The second season disappointed me, but it was because I had such high hopes for it due to the first season. However, if it were a standalone series, I would have liked it a lot more. Dream High made me cry along with the characters, made my heart melt at adorable romances, made me laugh, and put me through a whirlwind of emotions like no other drama.

The characters are all amazing singers, dancers, and actors. I may sound like such a nerd because of this review, but please, watch this amazing show so you can understand why I desire for it to be put into the top ten list so much.

24 You're All Surrounded

Hilarious, beautiful, and well-done. Each of the detectives on the team gets their chance to shine, and they do it well.

Friendship, mystery, comedy, and romance - it has it all tightly packed into one series. Definitely recommend!

Wow. In my opinion, the drama was a big hit. Even though there wasn't much comedy, it was still a big hit. I would definitely recommend it to someone who hasn't seen the drama yet.

Amazing Korean drama! It's a must-watch! Seriously. Despite the suspense, there's the right amount of comedy and romance.

25 Kill Me, Heal Me

It's one of the best K-dramas that I've watched. It has all the ingredients, from romance and comedy to happiness, sadness, anger, and forgiveness. Plus, it carries a social message about child abuse and its impact on children's future lives, all due to their parents' selfish matters. The plot is engaging, not boring, and flows naturally.

And, of course, it features one of the best chemistries I've seen among leads in K-dramas. Two thumbs up for Ji Sung (Cha Do Hyun/Shin Se Gi, and his other 5 personalities, including the "cute" Ahn Yoo Na) and Hwang Jung Eum (Oh Ri Jin). They are awesome and very compatible with each other, starting from their Secret Love days. The other cast members also played their parts well. Daebak!
