So it turns out that there are at least two K-Drama fans in this forum -- CaroLiza_fan and I.
Anyway, thought it would be fun to start this thread and share some of our favorites!
My first drama was Boys over Flowers. Looking back it wasn't the most well-produced, but somehow the rags-to-rich storyline, the bromance between the F4 and some of the fun exotic locales got me hooked.
Sort of related to that is a drama called Cheongdamdong Alice , which is currently airing right now. It's a drama that plays on an Alice in Wonderland theme and it's about a woman in her late 20s. who tries to get into the richest neighborhood in Seoul, Cheongdamdong (which is part of the Gangnam area). It's full of hilarious characters, including the the guy who serves as the "White Rabbit," who clearly has mental issues, but a heart of gold.
I will say the only reason I continued watching BoF was b/c of the Soeul couple. I've seen both the Taiwanese and Japanese version, so watching it a third time was kinda eh..... Have you seen Gentlemen's Dignity? It's like F4 when they are 40 except it isn't as over the top
I loved Baker King Kim Tak Goo - Yoon Siyoon's character was awesome but the kid playing his characters younger self was really good too. At first I thought a drama about baking was going to be weird, but I'm happy I gave it a chance.
One of my fav was Secret Garden. Hyun Bin's character was hilarious. Now that I think about it the story was kinda similar to BoF. Rich guy falls in love with poor stunt actress. The side couple was great too. I would definitely recommend watching this drama if you haven't.
*Sorry in advance to any korean posters if i butcher names and such >.<
Ohhh. I loved the the So-Eul couple! (For those who don't know what FTnoona is talking about, she's referring to the second couple featured on the show, So Yi Jung and Chu Ga Eul.) Yeah, I heard it was a letdown if you seen the Japanese/Taiwanese version.

I have not seen Secret Garden (heard a lot about it) but I loved Gentlemen's Dignity. I like the F44 a ton. And I just liked sort of the slice of life nature of the storyline as opposed to the company battles/love struggles we see with a lot of dramas.
I like to watch
