In this list, we will give you 10 Classic K-Dramas that we love to look back and rewatch clips but ended up rewatching the whole series all over again:

1. Endless Love: Autumn in My Heart (2000) & Winter Sonata (2002)

Genre: Melodrama, Romance

Endless love, the title of 2000 TV series was divided into 4 shows to showcase stories between 4 seasons of love.

The first series was Autumn in My Heart starring Song Hye-kyo, Song Seung-heon and Won Bin, we would never forget the early family related plot twists and that ending that broke our hearts!

This 2003 series was also one of the talks when it aired during their interesting storyline. It was starred by Kwon Sang-woo, Choi Ji-woo, Shin Hyun-joon, and Kim Tae-hee, this drama made us hate Tae-hee for a little while, and feel bad for Ji-woo’s character.

3. Full House (2004)

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Drama

This drama is one of the oldies that I wouldn’t mind to rewatch! Full House is one of the striking dramas that made us feel kilig for the first time in our early binge-watching. Starred by Rain, Song Hye-kyo, Han Eun-jung and Kim Sung-soo. We also learned from this series a popular Korean nursery rhyme titled, 곰세마리 (Gom Se Ma Ri or Three Bears) performed by Hye-kyo!

4. Jewel in the Palace (2004)

Genre: Historical Fiction

This drama is one of the Historical dramas and with more than 16 episodes that were introduced. We joined Lee Young-ae, Ji Jin-hee, Hong Ri-na, and Im Ho in their journey to showcase a wonderful part of Korean History to the viewers. This drama gave us a lot of feels that we wouldn’t mind rewatching those 60 episodes all over again!

5. My Lovely Sam Soon (2005)

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Drama

We all know that this drama is one of the new concepts back then, with Kim Yun-a’s character breaking the stereotype of the usual female lead. The story taught us about a new perspective when falling in love and of course, Hyun Bin and Yun-a’s chemistry is also strong with this one! This drama is one of the few evidence of having sparks sa pagkain!

6. Goong (Princess Hours) (2006)

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Drama

Out of all the K-Dramas in this list, Goong has been my personal and preferred favorite K-drama of all time, and I can’t even remember the times I’ve rewatched it. This show is a good introduction to balance the modern and traditional touches in Korean dramas that some shows are still adapting and using today. Yoon Eun-hye and Ju Ji-hoon’s chemistry in this show is also perfect! Admit it that you sometimes feel bad for Kim Jeong-hoons character and hated Song Ji-hyo so much!

7. Coffee Prince  (2007)

Genre: Romance, Comedy, Drama

This show introduces us to a whole new world of chaebol and gender-bending formula in Korean dramas. In which the male lead, starred by Gong Yoo as every girl’s dream: rich and good-looking but acts like a jerk. The show can get really funny at times whenever Gong Yoo is struggling whenever his character is having a crisis while he is with Yoon Eun-hye’s character. This is a good show to catch-up once in a while!
