The Wednesday Five: K-Drama Comfort Watches

Posted December 21, 2022 by Rowena in Features | 0 Comments

I’m a list person. I have a list for every single thing in my life from a to-do list, a list of books that I want to read, a running shopping list, and in the next few weeks, I’ll be sharing different k-entertainment lists that I’ve been keeping track of. You’ll be seeing my top 5 lists of stuff like my current celebrity crushes, my favorite k-drama female protagonists, my favorite k-drama male protagonists, my to-be-watched k-dramas, and you know, stuff like that.

This week’s Wednesday Five will feature my favorite comfort watches. These are the dramas that I always go back to when I’m in between shows or episodes. When it’s late at night and I’m not in the mood to read. I’ll put these on and instantly be in a great mood. These are my favorite comfort dramas.

1. Reply 1988

Where to Watch: Netflix
Starring: Park Bo Gum, Lee Hyeri, Ryu Joon Yeol

This is the k-drama that I rewatch the most. I watch episode 19 weekly. I absolutely adore this show. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched the scene when the boys are in class and sang Stevie Wonder with Dong Ryong. There are so many great scenes in this show and when I’m feeling down or just need a mood booster, odds are, I’m turning this show on. Probably episode 19. If you know, you know. 🙂

2. Fight For My Way

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Park Seo Joon, Kim Ji Won, Ahn Jae Hong

This is another of my comfort watches. That scene where Ae Ra is getting pushed around by all of those dickheads and Dong Man comes running in and jumping off the car to kick some dickhead ass? Yeah, I absolutely adore that. I also really like jealous Dong Man and aegyo Ae Ra. There’s a lot of gems tucked away in this drama and I re-watch them a lot.

3. Strong Woman, Do Bong Soon

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Park Hyung Shik, Park Bo Young, Jisoo

This drama is such a feel good drama and that couch scene when he asks her to love him back? Gah, I’m a puddle of goo for that. I absolutely adore these two and this show. I re-watch this one pretty often. I’m always watching the couch scene, the roof scene where she’s beginning him to leave her and save himself and he refuses? Gah. Absolutely adore that one. I also love watching them when they were texting in bed and how excited Min Min got over getting cutesy texts from Bong Soon. And when he finds out that she’s Pink Sweatshirt? Gah, LOVE!!

4. My Roommate is a Gumiho

Where to Watch: Viki
Starring: Jang Ki Yong, Hyeri, Bae In Hyuk

If you’ve seen this drama then you should probably know which scene I be watching of this one? LOL. Just kidding, there are a lot. This is one of those dramas that I’ll watch random episodes just because I really enjoyed the chemistry between the two main leads. Lee Dam is one of my favorite characters and I just like her vibe and seeing her love Orishin (I don’t know how you spell it, haha). And I loved seeing him in love with her. Sigh. I love this one.

5. Our Beloved Summer

Where to Watch: Netflix
Starring: Choi Woo Shik, Kim Da Mi, Kim Sung Cheol

This is one of those dramas that I will probably watch every year. This was such a feel good drama and I completely adored all of the characters, the romance story between the main leads and every single time V’s beautiful singing voice came on, singing Christmas Tree never fails to put me right in my feels. This is one of those comfort watches that I never hesitate in watching. This one is such a great re-watch drama. Who doesn’t like seeing Choi Woo Shik on their screen? Swoon.

What are some of your comfort k-dramas?
