If you’re a lover of romance comedy dramas then you might have spot on seen these scenes repeatedly. No matter how much we get to see, it’s just never enough.
1. A rich, handsome boss
This is normally reserved for office romances, but why must it be the boss? It is the only idea that makes the decision to enter into a relationship difficult because social norms are so different.
Examples: My Shy Boss, She Was Pretty, A Business Proposal
Of course, fireworks are wonderful to watch, but whereas Hollywood provides us with flower cliches, K-dramas can never pass up an opportunity to display fireworks.
Examples: Legend of the Blue Sea, Weightlifting Kim Bok Joo, Start Up
3. Blowing on an open wound
Our leads are very fragile people who can be hurt even by a papercut, which must be disinfected and wrapped in band aid so it does not leave a scar, so run along and get an ointment and blow on the wound.
Examples: Hometown Cha Cha Cha, So I Married An Anti-fan
4. Sudden, heartfelt hugs or head-on-shoulder scenes
Get to the sad part of the drama and these scenes are usually the go-to scenes. Lights!, Camera!, Action! Grabs her from behind “Wait for a second, let’s stay like this for just a second” and then she softly agrees.
Examples: King: The Eternal Monarch, Tale of Arang
5. Drunken Scenes
Let’s give it to Koreans, they love alcohol. There’s no drama you won’t find a bottle of soju. It’s so common like a bottle of sprite and usually, in these scenes, it’s all about letting frustrations out (why don’t you notice me? I am in so much pain) and in some way is found cute. This might lead to a kiss or piggy back rides.
Examples: Dali and the Cocky Prince, Angel Eyes, Shooting Stars
6. The Love-Hate Cycle
They usually never see eye to eye at first, but at the very end are inseparable,
Examples: Mr. Queen, It’s Okay Not To Be Okay, Her Private life
