But, just before she swims back into the ocean, they hold hands for a short moment. These very moments intertwine their fates much deeper than they thought.

12. My Sassy Girl (2001)

IMDB Ratings: 8/10
Starring the ultimate Hallyu Star Jun Ji-Hyun, this is one of the highest-grossing Korean romantic comedy movies of all time. This is the movie that rose Ji-Hyun to fame in the early stages of her career. Interestingly enough, this story is based on a series of true stories posting by a man named Ho-sik about his relationship with his girlfriend. A young man named Kyun-woo meets an unnamed drunk girl standing a little too close to the metro tracks, he pulls her back to save her. The story kicks off when just before she passes out she calls Kyun-woo “honey”, the passengers assume that he was her boyfriend and urge him to take care of her. He carries her on his back to a hotel room and vows to heal her sorrow.
But, he gets a lot more than he expects, she is a strange sociopath, has major mood swings and her crazy antics only make him hooked on her. She enjoyed humiliating people around her but it looks like she has a soft spot of genuine affection towards Kyun-woo under all that rough exterior. A very witty comedy that makes one laugh like there’s no tomorrow. But it switches its pace in the second half of the movie where we see a vulnerable side of this ‘sassy girl’, we witness a dramatic side of the characters and watch them mature. Even though the second half is serious than the first, the comedy spread out evenly throughout the movie does it justice.
A priceless and incredible movie that effortlessly blends drama, romance, and comedy into a perfect cinematic experience. An eccentric movie with eccentric characters that you can’t help but fall in love with.

A very hilarious Korean Romantic comedy drama that equally emotional, it’s more like laughing through tears sometimes. (A.k.a You are my destiny)A romance between Lee Gun a successor to a huge corporation who can be cold and prickly to everyone around him and Kim Mi-Young a secretary at his firm. These two polar opposites cross paths one eventful night through a series of a comedy of errors. After being individually being drugged, they end up in the same room and spending a night together. Mi-young later finds out that she was pregnant with Lee Gun’s baby. Despite his cold nature, Lee Gun ends up genuinely caring for Mi-young and their baby. After this accidentally one-night stand, Mi-Young’s life changes indefinitely.
This drama has many factors that make it a drama worthy of this list, A very addictive drama that will pull you in as soon as you start it. With a very light and happy soundtrack combined with a very capable cast, this drama really makes it one of the best Romantic dramas. The funny pace of the first half was good but as we slowly enter the second half it becomes emotional for a while before pulling back to the original mood of the story. However, the best part about this drama is Jang Hyuk playing Lee Gun with his maniacal laugh and expressive and playful eyes and Jang Na-ra playing a simple character and turning into a complex one with her acting skills. You’ll enjoy this drama to the fullest!
14. Suspicious Partner (2017)

IMDB Ratings: 7.9/10
This suspenseful romantic comedy Korean drama, also known as Love In Trouble, is a perfect blend of comedy, romance, and suspense. Revolving around the lives of Noh Ji-Wook and Eun Bong-hee, two prosecutors who meet in unfortunate circumstances. This Korean romantic comedy drama was a total stress reliever that had me rolling on the floor. In the very beginning, both of them meet in a hilarious situation that leads to a question of whether they spent the night together while they were drunk. However, they cross paths again as lawyers. Bong-hee gets falsely accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend and Ji-Wook loses his job defending her in court. But he trusts that Bong-hee is innocent. He opens up a new firm with a few capable lawyers including Bong-hee and works on finding the psychopathic murderer who was on a homicidal rampage.
It’s a fast-paced drama with quirky and hilarious characters and a fantastic supporting cast, the show hardly misses a chance to entertain. The writers did a great job of blending crime and romance-comedy, two opposite genres, together in a perfect way. Nothing really felt out of place. The hilariously cute chemistry between Bong-hee and Ji-Wook took the drama to the next level for me. The suspenseful and the creepy acting we get from the antagonist, the murderer did a great job making his actor unlikable. If you hate an antagonist, they did a great job playing the role. All in all, everything about this romantic kdrama is absolutely perfect and it has everything I wanted.
15. Oh My Venus (2015)
Cast: So Ji-sub, Shin Min-a, Jung Gyu-Woon, Yoo In-young, Sung Hoon, Henry Lau, Jung Hye-sung, Jin Kyung, Jo Eun-Ji, Choi Jin-ho, and Lee Seung-ho
IMDB Rating: 7.8/10
One of the best Korean Romantic comedy dramas, Oh My Venus is one of the first drama I ever watched. About John Kim, a personal trainer runs back to Korean after a scandal with a famous Hollywood actress. On is way back, he saves a woman named Kang Joo-Eun after she passes out on the flight. Both of them meet in several other situations in the future where he saves Joo-Eun from pitiful circumstances. Joo-Eun was once beautiful, famous for her looks and perfect body, but after being an overworked lawyer for years, she gains a lot of weight and is no more considered ‘pretty’. After losing her 15-year old relationship with her boyfriend she asks John Kim to be her personal trainer and help her lose weight in return of not revealing his identity and whereabouts.
As they work on Joo-Eun’s transformation they develop feelings towards each and heal each other’s wounds and fall in love. This drama has a special place in my heart for its hilarious comedy blended with really good acting and plot. A very refreshing drama that doesn’t involve any kind of surgery or fast transformations. It is a slow journey to get back to her desired state after eating healthy and exercising. The chemistry between the leads is incredible, Joo-Eun is a lively and cheerful character that counteracts John’s passive personality. A very good balance between excitement, passion, comedy, and decency. However, Not once did the show condone fat-shaming that I was worried about, but it makes the lead lovable in both her sizes.
16. Her Private Life (2019)

Cast: Park Bo-young, Kim Young-kwang, Kang Ki-young, Ko Kyu-pil, Jang Sung-bum, Cha Yup, Seo Eun-soo, and Bae Hae-sun.
IMDB Ratings: 6.9/10
One of the most anticipated movies of 2018 for me, this Korean romantic comedy movie did not disappoint. Woo-Yeon is a PE teacher at a high school, he finds a wedding invitation card sent by a woman Hwan Seung-he. This triggers a series of flashbacks, It’s 2005 and Woo-Yeon was punished for getting into a fight earlier that day, that’s when he meets a new student, Hwan Seung-hee. She gets all the attention in the school for being the new ‘it’ girl and she hates it. They end up spending time together and developing feelings for each other. But, two loose contact when Seung-hee moves away. They meet each other on various occasions but unfortunately, circumstances always kept them apart. Woo-Yeon’s love for Seung-hee never fades but the situation turns her love for him into hate.
This is an incredible movie that proves that love is all about timing, two people, no matter how in love they are can never get together if the circumstances are against it. A very relatable and convincing plot with characters feeling realistic and raw. They have their own shortcomings but one comes to love the characters and sympathize with them as they go through tough times. But, all the emotional scenes are evenly balanced out with light-hearted moments and comedic reliefs that make this movie a very sweet romantic comedy. Commendable actors that portray an array of emotions from joy and tears to suffering and love.
Cast: Kim Ah-joong, Joo Jin-mo, Sung Dong-il, Kim Hyun-sook, Im Hyun-sik, Lee Han-wi, Ji Seo-yun, and Park No-shik
IMDB Ratings: 6.8/10
This next Korean Romantic movie is like the modern-day Cinderella story. Revolving around Han-na, overweight and extremely talented singer who provides her stunning vocals to a pretty but tone-deaf pop star who can’t carry a tune. After a cruel incident, she is determined to change herself, she undergoes intensive plastic surgery. She hides from the world for a year while recovering from the changes and the extreme weight loss she experiences due to the surgery. After recovering, she returns looking beautiful and slender she becomes everything that she’s ever wanted, she creates a new identity for herself. She was no more Han-na, she is now Jenny, a Korean-American vocalist from California. She does everything in her power to get her love Sang-Jun. Along the way, she loses herself.
A very witty movie that has a very consistent flow of comedy. It is not one of those movies that will make you roll on the floor laughing, it will make you happier after watching it. Definitely, not a very serious story, but has some powerful meanings and lessons hidden in there. The protagonist did a great job while playing her roles. The writing is witty and the soundtrack is incredible! An overall balanced movie with a good cast and story that can win anyone over.
23. Penny Pinchers (2011)

IMDB Ratings: 6.7/10
A Korean romantic comedy movie about two penny pinchers, one saves because it’s her hobby and others because he has no choice. Ji-Woong is an unemployed college graduate who doesn’t pass any job interviews and lives off of an allowance his mother provides him. He is an optimist, but in reality, he has no money to afford necessities and needs to crap his dating life. He just gets evicted when his mother cuts him off. Meanwhile, Hong-sil is a very frugal woman, she’d do anything to save a penny. She walks miles to save on bus fare and even denounces anything that might cost her money. She left Church, doesn’t go to hospitals, and never dates because it will damage her bank account. Her favorite thing in the entire world is to deposit everything she saves in the bank, but the road to her goal has an obstacle.
She is required to have a separate bank account to reach her goals of accumulating ₩200 million. So she ropes Ji-woong in offering to teach her ways of penny-pinching and shows him a money-making scheme if he follows whatever she says. A really underrated movie that gradually develops their relationships from friends to lovers. Hilarious scenes that show them saving every cent and try to live life with what they have. Both Ha-neul and Joong-ki have a very natural chemistry that made them look very adorable together. I recommend you to watch this Korean rom-com movie if you want some good laughs and some subtle romance.
24. Mood of the Day (2016)
Cast: Moon Chae-won, Yoo Yeon-Seok, Jo Jae-Yoon, Kim Seul-gi, Park Min-woo, Lee Yeon-doo, Kang Soo-jin, and Lee Un-Jung
IMDB Ratings: 6.7/10
A sweet and adorable romantic comedy Korean drama with a simple story with brilliant acting and gags. About Soo-Jeong, a bubbly woman on her way to Busan to close an important advertising contract with a basketball player. In her train coach, she meets Jae-Hyeon who takes a seat next to her. He immediately starts flirting with her, however, she has been in a relationship for ten long years but she has no idea where it was heading to. Jae-Hyeon is a sports manager and an extremely talented former basketball player. He is straight-forward and tells her that he wants to spend a night with her. However, She gives into talking to him understanding that she had no other choice. Their trains malfunctions and they are forced to continue their journey in a car. They grow closer over the trip and that one-night-stand Jae-Hyeon mention doesn’t seem so crazy anymore.
Some people do find faults in the movies, but it is what it is, a simple romantic movie. A pretty light-weighted movie that is very entertaining. The protagonists literally make the movie, there was a balance between the funny and hilarious scenes. However, the relative pace was of the movie great, it never got too slow or emotionally heavy. The soundtracks and the screenplay were also pretty good, the movie felt very natural and light! If you’re looking for some laughs, nothing too emotional, this is a good choice!
25. My Tutor Friend (2003)
Cast: Kim Ha-neul, Kwon Sang-woo, Gong Yoo, Kim Ji-woo, Baek Il-Soeb, Kim Ja-ok, Kim Hye-ok, and Oh Seung-geun
IMDB Ratings: 6.7/10
One of the biggest hits of 2003, this popular Korean Romantic comedy movie is a hilarious romance between a smart college girl who gets hired to tutor a spoilt rich kid of her age. This drama is actually based on a real-life story of an English literature major and her experiences in tutoring a highschooler of the same age as hers. Choi Su-wan a 21-year-old young woman in her second year at university, meanwhile, Kim Ji-hoon, also a 21-year old, is still struggling in his senior year of high school. Su-wan comes from a poor family so she earns for herself by tutoring students, however, she is kicked out after hitting them. She gets an offer of teaching Ji-hoon just enough to pass high-school and her salary covered an entire semester of her university.
To avoid being sent away Ji-hoon needs to get at least 50% on his exams when in reality his average scores are far below. While teaching him to pass his high school test, somewhere in the middle Ji-hoon realizes his feelings for her and tries hard to express them but things keep interrupting his efforts. A fresh comedy with delightful and hilarious dialogues and great acting by the leads. Also, the addition of great choreography for the fight scenes was a pleasant surprise. The banter between the characters is always fun to watch but with a great development arc for them, the movie has a great blend of many themes.
26. Two Faces of My Girlfriend (2007)
Cast: Bong Tae-gyu, Jung Ryeo-won, Lee Hye-eun, Shin Eun-jung, Kim In-kwon, Jin Tea-hyun, Kim Tae-su, Kim Gyeong-rae, Jang Ji-woong, and Sa-hee
IMDB Ratings: 6.6/10
This hilarious Korean romantic comedy movie is equal parts emotional and funny. I went into this movie thinking it was a genuine romantic comedy with cheesy romance and witty comedy but you get so much more. About Gu Chang a college student in his 7th year who struggles with finding a job and lives off of allowances from his sister and takes money form his little nephew. Things really can’t get worse for him, he already leads a tragic lifestyle. He is a 30-year old who has never had a girlfriend or his first kiss! His situation seems to get better when he meets Ah Ni and falls immediately in love with her. However, nothing came easy to him, he discovers his girlfriend suffers from multiple personality disorder that makes her act aggressive one minute and sweet the next!
The sweet Ah ni is innocent and cute while the other side of her is overly wild, she drinks and cusses like a sailor. Sure, it’s hilarious and lovey-dovey but you get some seriously emotional scenes that will tear you up. That’s the definition of a proper movie, that will make you laugh and cry all way through, it was really an experience! The acting by the protagonist and the supporting cast was incredible, the casting for this Korean romantic comedy movie is a solid 10/10!
27. Love Forecast (2015)
Cast: Lee Seung-gi, Moon Chae-won, Lee Seo-jin, Jung Joon-young, Go Yoon, Lizzy, Ryu Hwayoung, and Park Si-eun
Love Forecast IMDB Ratings: 6.2/10
A Korean romantic comedy drama about Joon-soo and Hyun-woo, who meet at a young age. Joon-soo confesses his love for Hyun-woo in school but she flat out rejects him in public. But he never gives up, he sticks by her side for 18 years and silently supports her in everything. He sits through her rough patches, drinking binges, and her breakups and supports her career as a weather girl. She is a beautiful girl who has quite a fan following, but in reality, she is a foul-mouthed girl who swore a lot. However, she takes him for granted, she falls in love with her producer who woos her at work. But, she doesn’t care that he was married, Joon-soo warns her, but she never listens. Her life unfolds as she juggles between three different relationships with three different men with totally different personalities.
Great chemistry between the protagonists, the plot is hilarious but Seung-gi as the male lead really what did it for me. He did an amazing job playing a puppy-lover, he never leaves her side no matter what. the interactions between the cast are very funny. You’d totally enjoy watching this movie, it is light-hearted and fun!
