New Delhi: As Cupid readies his bow this Valentine’s Day, those seeking a cozy night in might enjoy a touch of Korean drama romance. Renowned for their captivating storytelling, emotional depth, and unexpected narrative twists, Korean dramas, or K-Dramas, have garnered a global fanbase. In celebration of love, here are five exceptional K-Dramas that promise to warm hearts and provoke swoons.

First on the list is “Crash Landing On You,” a tale that defies borders and expectations. Picture a high-flying CEO, Yoon Se Ri (Son Ye Jin), involved in a paragliding mishap that whisks her away to North Korea. There, she encounters the valiant Captain Ri Jeong Hyuk (Hyun Bin), who becomes her savior and protector. Braced for the tensions of their circumstances, they navigate treacherous waters only to surrender to love. Renowned for its emotive moments that blur the lines between fiction and reality, the chemistry between Son Ye Jin and Hyun Bin proved so authentic that it led them down the aisle in real life, blessing them with a child and providing fans with a fairy-tale ending off-screen as well.

For a dose of humor intertwined with romance, “A Business Proposal” offers a playful escape. In this office rom-com, Shin Ha Ri (Kim Sejeong), a food researcher, steps in for a blind date on behalf of her friend, only to find herself face-to-face with Kang Tae Moo (Ahn Hyeo Seop), the CEO of a food company. Tae Moo’s pragmatism sees him proposing a fake relationship to deter familial pressure, igniting an irresistible attraction that persists even after truth revelations. With love simultaneously blooming between their close friends, this K-Drama serves up a double portion of romantic excitement.

The compelling “What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim” stars Park Seo Joon as Lee Young Joon, a self-important executive whose world is shaken when his indispensable secretary, Kim Mi So (Park Min Young), resigns. Fearing the loss, Young Joon endeavors to keep her, only to fall deeply in love. The series paves a delightful journey embellished with a common K-Drama trope – the childhood connection, delivering generous laughs and tender romance.

Engaging in a classic enemies-to-lovers trope is “Love To Hate You,” with Yoo Tae Oh playing Nam Kang Ho, a romantic idol plagued by personal trust issues. When a fierce lawyer, Yeo Mi Ran (Kim Ok Bun), enters his world, their initial animosity blossoms into something unexpected—love. Their fiery dynamics explore whether two seemingly incompatible individuals can endure the trials of romance.

Last but not least, “Something In The Rain” explores a mature relationship, as Ji Ah (Son Ye Jin) grapples with societal expectations and personal desires when reacquainted with her childhood friend Joon Hee (Jung Hae In). As love takes root, they are forced to confront age differences, familial objections, and their own barriers towards achieving lasting happiness.

All these K-Dramas, each with their distinct charm, are readily available for streaming on Netflix. They serve as a testament to the intricate, emotional explorations that K-Dramas are celebrated for. As Valentine’s Day beckons, these five shows are perfect companions to indulge in the full spectrum of love’s joys and challenges, ensuring an evening filled with laughter, tears, thrills, and undeniable romance.
