Romantic Kdramas on Netflix that you need to watch
My Love From Another Star
A trademark style of love stories in Kdramas is one half being a mystical entity. No matter what genre you prefer to watch, supernatural romantic Kdramas will definitely leave you entertained. Be it the female lead being a nine-tailed fox in My Roommate Is A Gumiho or the male lead being the God of Destruction in Doom At Your service, romantic supernatural Kdramas are tried and tested. While there is a plethora of Kdramas in this range, nothing will ever be able to top the 2013 Kdrama My Love from the Star.
The screenplay of My Love the Star was written by Park Ji Eun. She is also the mastermind behind The Legend of the Blue Sea and Crash Landing On You. To take this well-written storyline to another level was the fact that the Kdrama stars two of the biggest Hallyu actors, Kim Soo Hyun and Jun Ji Hyun.
The plot of My Love from the Star follows Do Min Joon. He came from another planet during the Joseon dynasty and has been finding a way to go back ever since. Furthermore, given that he is being played by Kim Soo Hyun, Do Min Joon is obviously good-looking, but that is not all.
Do Min Joon can hear and see everything within a 10km range. He has read almost every book on the planet. The story begins when he crosses paths with the eccentric star Cheon Song Yi. Cooked up with the perfect amount of humor, mystery, and romance, My Love from the Star is available on Netflix.
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo
If you are a fan of the friends-to-lovers trope, this one is for you. The year 2016 was considered a folder year for Kdramas because it had amazing releases such as Descendants Of The Sun and Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. Another gem that we were blessed with that year is Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok Joo. This Kdrama is so pure and sweet that you might get actual cavities while watching it. Additionally, the sixteen-episode-long romantic Kdrama revolves around Kim Bok Joo.
She is the top weightlifter at her university. She lost her mother at a young age and was raised by her father. Furthermore, she spent most of her adolescent days at the gym. The drama follows Kim Bok Joo as she goes through the ups and downs of life. And having a caring boyfriend who would freeze himself just to keep you warm definitely makes it easier.

“Mass is not proportional to volume. A girl as small as a violet, a girl who moves like a flower petal is pulling me towards her with more force than a mass:” Tthe lonely and great God Kim Shin is reminded of Kim In Yook’s these beautiful words from the ‘Physics of Love‘ as he watches Ji Yeon Tak coming towards him.
