My favorite K-dramas

I watch K-dramas. Not extensively, I think I fall on the middle of the K-drama fans spectrum. I’m not biased to a particular genre and I’m not well-versed enough to be a critic, but generally I like dramas where the main characters have good chemistry, have witty dialogues and script that is written with a little brain, have plots with considerable essence, and well-paced. Good looking actors, cinematography, art direction, music, and costume are added values.

The drama may have only one or two things that I mentioned above, and I can really enjoy watching it. It doesn’t have to have all aspects correct for me to like a drama. Let’s just say when it comes to K-dramas, I’m not an overzealous idealistic film aficionado.

In no particular order, here are some K-dramas that I really enjoy watching and/or have made a lasting impression on me (as far as I can remember):
