Please click here to check the part 2 of this list. I’ve been watching one romantic comedy drama just about every night since 2012. Yes, this drama is not a Romantic comedy and shouldn’t be on this list, but Signal is no doubt one of the best Korean dramas of 2016. The story is so smart, filled with great characters. My feelings towards the typical romantic comedy are a lot like my feelings toward “Sodas”. Lol Anyway, kidding aside, the drama was really good.This drama is great, and the finale was sweet and heartwarming. This is one of the few dramas I wish would never end.I cried my heart out with its finale, the emotions were so genuine, and how the goodbyes were beautifully done. To all of us K-Drama addicts, we know it’s rare enough to find a drama that is consistently good from the first episode ‘til its finale.So Ji Sub and Shin Min Ah make an adorable couple and they delivered their characters beautifully.I laughed and giggled a lot through the whole series. I love how the plot focused on female lead’s simple story and her road to self discovery.The dude is freaking good, to the point that I want to kill him because he’s too evil (very convincing). The drama was mysterious but cute and very engaging. Though a lot of people say that the story line was kind of boring (because they were dragging out the story-line for too long), I still find this show cute and light to watch.
Lots of life lessons in this drama and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole journey with the whole cast.
This drama carried a meaningful message while giving us lots of entertaining and cute moments, and of course a sweet and satisfying finale. There’s a bit a conflict in the story line, and also a bit dragging, but the cuteness and the chemistry of the casts beat those flaws.
Though I said the story is a bit dragging, but you can completely relate to it.
My little project doesn’t come close to my college thesis research, but I did find some amazing Korean Drama gems. Note that I have changed the arrangement of this list to “By Year”. Not so much on the love interest side, no big battle, but the best story you will ever find on a drama, a wonderful story (emotional, realistic, and dramatic) with things that will chill and warm you.
Aside from the three main actors, who gave their best to portray their characters, I would also like to express my admiration to Jang Hyun Sung. The actors were all good; they played their characters so well. Honestly, what I first started watching Moorim School, I thought it’s giving me that Harry Potter and Dream High feel.
