1. Princess hours
Princess hours is a romantic–comedy drama about a Korean royal family story in the 21st century. (There is no royal families in Korea now.) The main Characters are Shin chae kyeong, Yi shin, Yi yool and Min hyo rin. Shin Chae-kyeong is a very creative and outgoing, normal high school girl. Her grandfather was the best friend of the the previous King. To honor his friend, the previous King commanded to make Chae-kyeong the Crown Princess, which means that she is to marry whoever the Crown Prince will be at the time of the marriage. Then, much fun, exciting love story begins. It was televised in Singapore, Thailand, Philippines, Malaysia, Canada and Turkey.

2. My girl
My girl is also a hit drama in Korea. Lee dong wook and Lee Da Hae are the main character. Lee Da Hae is a tour guide in Jeju island. Accidentally, she met Lee dong Wook while she was working. And accidentally met Lee Dong Wook again for the second time. He found out that she has a connection to his missing cousin that his grandfather has been searching for a long time. He asks Lee Da Hae to lie about being his long missing cousin. My girl was a top drama in 2006. Lee dong wook and Lee Da Hae both are good looking actor and actress. It will be great drama to watch.

3. The 1st shop of Coffee Prince
It’s one of my favorite drama, too. It's also loved by many countries. The main casts were Go En Chan, Choi Han Kyul and Choi Han Sung. Choi Han Kyul is the cocky son of a rich family who runs a food corporation. Go Eun Chan is a girl playing like a guy. Han kyul reopened a coffee shop, "The 1st shop of Coffee Prince". En Chan worked there surrounded with good looking men. Han Kyul didn’t know that En Chan is a girl but later in the story he fall in love slowly to En Chan. This drama has also a published book.


4. Full house
The world famous star ‘Rain’ is the main character along with Song Hye Gyo. Rain is a famous high caliber actor in dramas, too. Song Hye Gyo( Han ji eun) is a novelist and she live in the Full House (as the title suggests). One day, two of her friends, for money reasons, tricked her and sold her house. After that, she knew it was sold to Rain (Lee Young Jae). They live together because of the house. The love story started in this house. They had lots of love quarrels too. It’s as fresh as a daisy. But, the best thing about this drama is the actor Rain, himself. For Rain fanatics out there, this is a great chance to see him in live action drama.



5. My name is Kim Sam Soon

My name is Kim Sam Soon is one of the funny and hilarious love story drama in Korea with a program rating of over 50 %. The main characters are Kim Seon A, Hyun-bin , Daniel Henny and Jung Ryu Won. They are popular stars in Korea. Kim Sam Soon is a baker who studied in France. She is a very talented baker. She broke with his boy friend on Christmas eve the same day she met Hyun Jin Hun. Jin Hun needs a baker in his restaurant. Sam Soon has immediately hired but they fought like cats and dogs. In the end, they fall in love. It’s comical, fun and with a romantic touch when they have love quarrels. I recommend this drama to someone who want to see handsome guys and fun stories.
