In k-drama land, there are plenty of reasons that make us love one more than the other. It could be a culmination of factors — plot, acting, setting, music, etc. For me, some the dramas that stand out the most are the ones that have strong, beautiful, epic-style love stories between the two leads. I won’t even attempt to lie: love stories are my favorite part of books and moves. Maybe it’s the hopeless romantic in me wishing that I’ll one day find my own love. Either way, I have a deeper connection with the dramas that have beautiful love story over the sillier, quirky dramas. (Not that the silly ones aren’t good, FYI.)
Below I’ve compiled a list of the leads that have made me feel every emotion in the book… and then some.
