- Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo

Lee Sung Kyung and Nam Joo Hyuk portrayed their parts very well, as their chemistry took over the entire K-drama fandom. You won’t feel a bit stressed with this one, so if you just want to have some laugh and kilig, you should definitely see this.
And hey, you might also want to find out the answer to the famous question “Do you like Messi?”
- Goblin: The Lonely and Great God
Get your Kleenex ready, because this fantasy drama will leave you feeling high and low as if you’re on a rollercoaster ride. There will be a lot of fluttering hearts and stomach butterflies but along with these are cracked voices and swollen eyes as tears run down your cheeks. But one thing is certain of—this will not leave you in disappointment island. Even our very own Anne Curtis can live up to that promise. Not only she is obsessed with the drama, but she is actually SO OBSESSED that she just can’t stop fangirling over actor Gong Yoo.
- Legend of the Blue Sea
If you want to see the modern version of Dyesebel and our all-time favorite Korean actor Lee Min Ho in one drama, then you are in on this one. Here, you get a typical family drama but with a lot of fantasy twists that will surely play with your emotions. And of course, lead actress Jun Ji Hyun also catches the hearts of the viewers. The chemistry between this two is poppin’, so you should find yourself smiling throughout the drama, though you may want to save some Kleenex for this one too—not as much as for Goblin, thankfully.
- Strong Woman Do Bong Soon
If you’re up for a fantasy drama but can’t handle the emotional stress that comes with it, then here’s the perfect one for you. Strong Woman Do Bong Soon gives us a taste of mild fantasy and overloading romance. The story is just too playful with a dramatic love triangle pinch. The cast, with their stares and smile exchange, will definitely make you want to shriek in excitement. I’m telling you, if you want to feel your heart beat like it’s competing in a track and field, this one is your best shot.
