Today I’m coming with yet another kdrama post; I’ve had this idea for a while now, to do separate overly specific kdrama recommendations and this is the first attempt. Let’s see how it goes!
As always I only recommend the ones I’ve watched and enjoyed (that’s why these posts are not very regular) and would really appreciate any feedback you could give!! Like what sort of recs you want to see etc.
So let’s get to the gist of the post: comfort kdramas. What do I mean by that? well, you know these dramas that make you feel warm and fuzzy inside? that relax and calm you and make you feel good about yourself and life in general? that’s exactly the vibe these 5 kdramas gave me.
I’m a huge fan of this type of drama even if it is severely underappreciated. and I get it; they’re not loud and don’t attract a lot of attention with insane plot lines and character relationships. They’re more on the quiet side with real life relationships and struggles. But I absolutely love watching them; in one word they make me feel comforted.
Ready for the recs? Let’s go!!
Run On (2020)
One of my fav comfort dramas and the one that sort of inspired this post. Watch if you’re looking for:
👟 cute romance x2
👟 inspirational quotes
👟 relaxation and calmness
👟 lovable characters
Into the Ring (2020)
if I had to choose a favorite from this list, this would definitely be it. Watch if you’re looking for:
🗳 lively, bubbly female lead
🗳 grumpy (but soft only for the fl) male lead
🗳 corrupt politicians getting what they deserve
Do You Like Brahms? (2020)
This one is soo underappreciated. I get that it’s not the a very memorable drama but this is its beauty, for me. Watch if you like:
🎻 soft soft soft romance
🎻 a little bit of pain and yearning
🎻 characters finding their calling and direction in life
Mystic Pop Up Bar (2020)
This was a big surprise for me because I didn’t expect to like it as much. Watch if you like:
🥣 food as a comfort
🥣 tragic backstories
🥣 found family trope
Lovestruck In the City (2020-2021)
I loved the fact the episodes were 30 min long I wish more dramas would follow this TAKE NOTES! Watch if you like:
🏖 summer vibes / summer romance
🏖 whipped boys
🏖 angst and yearning (a lot)
🏖 creative ways of storyrelling
