My must-watch lists got off to a great start in 2013, but 2014 was a total hit or miss year for Korean dramas! But, be sure to check out the long list of KDramas that I’ve watched and loved in the past right HERE.
1. My Love From Another Star
In this drama starring Jeon Ji Hyun, Kim Soo Hyun, Park Hae Jin, and Yoo Inna, an alien from another planet lands in Korea and falls in love with a top Hallyu star.
(The “Must-Watch” KDrama of the Year!)
2. Secret Love Affair
An older married woman falls in love with a much younger boy. Her marriage and life slowly collapse, but will love save her? I shared my first impressions– a kind of recap, HERE.
(The “My Favorite” KDrama of The Year!)
3. A Witch’s Romance
Another older woman falls for a much younger guy, and hijinks ensue thanks to the the cute, bubbly relationship between the two leads, played by Uhm Jung Hwa and Park Seo Joon. Be sure to check out their steamy kisses HERE!
(The Cutest KDrama of The Year!)
4. High School King of Savvy
This Kdrama about a high school boy turned CEO was so good it got it’s own surprise post! Read it right HERE, and although some hated it– I LOVED it.
(The Funniest KDrama of The Year!)
5. Fated To Love You
I was skeptical of Jang Hyuk in a role like this one– I last saw him playing a slave in Chuno after all, but he pulled off Mr. Charming Chaebol and gave him his own unique, Jang Hyuk-spin.
(The Most Romantic KDrama of The Year!)
6. You’re All Surrounded
This is another one that just made my must-watch list. Read all about it right HERE. Of course, I might be a little more than biased when it comes to THIS KDrama…
(The “My Biggest Bias” KDrama of The Year!)
7. Bad Guys
Park Hae Jin plays a psychopath who may also be the serial killer behind the death of a very angry detective. When he and two other convicts are asked to solve crimes, will they be able to live like humans– or die like bad guys?
(The Most Action-Packed KDrama of The Year!)
Uh-oh. This KDrama just stole the title of Best KDrama of The Year. I’m still watching it, but not for long since once I start, I can’t stop. And, I’ve got ALL evening… and night.
My KDrama Shelf
Now, as you’ve seen I’ve decided not to watch any of the divorce dramas (Emergency Couple and Sly and Single Again), medical dramas (New Leaf, Doctor Stranger, and Angel Eyes), or cop dramas (Gap Dong and
You’re All Surrounded) that aired this year.
I also passed on Joseon Gunman, Trot Lovers, and My Secret Hotel
High School King of Savvy as well. It’s Okay, It’s Love just seems cray cray, so even though I love Gong Hyo Jin– I’ll pass on this KDrama.
Now, here’s what is still on my KDrama Shelf, but might make the cut for the 2014 must-watch list.
Yoo Na’s Street
I Love both of these leads and the entire cast– along with the story about a bumbling detective and his sexy pick-pocketing neighbor! English subs are out, so watch this KDrama right HERE.
A JDrama remake with lots of buzz, too!
Uhm, my Korean boy bias Lee Soo Hyuk plus my Korean girl bias Lee Shi Kyung plus the writer of My Name is Kim Sam Soon? Yes, this is definitely on my must-watch KDrama watch list.
The King’s Face
… and the list continues, but I’m falling so far behind! I’m watching Witch Hunt now and will watch The Greatest Love again before jumping back to 2014. So stay with me as I update this list and come to the final conclusion at the end of the year.
Just when I was about to give up on KDramas, I’ve been pulled back in!
Finally, you can watch a bunch of new and old dramas on my favorite site where I watch high quality videos (1080p!) with great subtitles that leave nothing out: Kdrama.com, now known as SoompiTV!
