- Korean Odyssey
- My ID is Gangnam Beauty
- I Am Not A Robot
- Radio Romance
- Terius Behind Me
- 100 Days My Prince
- The Great Producer
Looking at the list above, it looks like Korea’s romantic comedies are a hit this year! With the first place being What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim. The drama, which stars popular actor Park Seo Jun and Park Min Young, was actually based off a novel of the same name by Jung Kyung Hoon. The drama was even deemed as one of the highest rated Korean dramas in cable television history!
My personal favorite was My ID is Gangnam Beauty and I am not surprised it is at No. 3 on the list! The drama, starring Im Soo-hyang, Cha Eun-woo, Jo Woo-ri, and Kwak Dong-yeon was hilarious and such a fun drama to watch after a long day at school/work. The series is based on the webtoon of the same name published in 2016 by Naver Webtoon. Astro’s Cha Eun Woo definitely surprised me with his acting in this drama.
It is so interesting to see what the top grossing Korean dramas for this year are! 2018 is definitely a year filled with many good dramas that you should watch if you have not!
