The constant bickering of our protagonists and their goofiness is what will keep you entertained throughout and have you smiling from ear to ear.

The Package

The Package tells the story of a group of different people who embark on a guided tour together to France. It’s a heart-warming K-Drama of building new relationships as well as maintaining the older ones. The drama shows two couples, a father-daughter duo and a solo traveller, each with their own separate problems.

Even behind the subtle bickering, you get a chance to see how everyone connects together. Packed with humorous scenes and a fantastic cast line of Jung Yong-hwa, Lee Yeon-hee and Choi Woo-shik, the whole drama is picturised in France as the designated setting.

Reply 1988

Being the last of the Reply series, Reply 1988 revolves around the lives of a group of five friends in Ssangmun-dong, a small neighbourhood in Seoul. Five childhood friends with sibling-like relationships who always hang out together, however, things start getting complicated when new feelings arise. The drama covers the struggles of each family as well as of individuals, and their bittersweet and memorable moments of youth.

A family-oriented show that beautifully depicts the bond between family members and friends, making it the perfect drama with all the content to make you laugh, grin and be overwhelmed.

P.s. it also features our Bogummy!

Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo

A coming-of-age story, Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo is definitely not like the usual K-Dramas. The story focuses on the main protagonist, Kim Bok-joo (Lee Sung-kyung), an ambitious collegiate female weightlifter. Bok-joo hangs out with her two besties, both weightlifter athletes of her age on the college campus, and off-campus helps her dad out with their small restaurant.

A spoonful of entertainment and laughter is added when our title heroine bumps into her elementary school friend, Jung Joon-hyung (Nam Joo-hyuk), a swimmer on the same campus. A ton of teasing takes place when these two meet but will this friendship develop into something more? A light-hearted K-Drama with model/actor Nam Joo-hyuk and the beautiful Lee Sung-kyung, you definitely cannot miss this one!

Fight for my way

Fight for my way tells the story of two longtime friends and their other two close mates, showing the struggles of life and being stuck in the everyday grind of their jobs. However, our main protagonists dream of being more. While Ko Dong-man (Park Seo-joon) dreams of being an MMA fighter, Choi Ae-ra (Kim Ji-won) wants to be a TV anchor. The overall drama is light and filled with both cute and funny moments that are the very essence of life, so make sure to add this one to your list. And if not watching it for any other reason, watch it for Park Seo-joon *fangirls*
