1. Coffee Prince
It's been 14 years since the release of Coffee Prince, yet we can't deny that it is still one of the most successful K-Dramas out there that became a part of the Hallyu wave. The series revolves around a brilliant, wealthy man who runs a coffee shop and a woman pretending to be a man to work at the cafe. Eventually, the two sparked romantic feelings even though Gong Yoo's character did not know that Yoo Eun Hye was a woman in the first place. What sets this Kdrama apart for the rest is how the director and writer bravely discussed the existing gender norms in the romantic relationship aspect. Coffee Prince will give you heart-fluttering moments and valuable learning experiences about the harsh reality of our society.

5. Mr. Queen
If Kdramas like Empress Ki and Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo made you bawl your eyes, Mr. Queen, on the other hand, is guaranteed to make you cry as well but out of immense laughter. It is a story about how a modern man living in the 20th century was transported back in time during the Joseon Era. He gets trapped in the queen's body, and eventually builds ties with an intelligent king who has a lot of secrets. One of the reasons it is considered one of the best dramas in 2020 is how great Shin Hye Sun and Kim Jong Hyun are portraying their characters. Their chemistry is indeed off the charts as well. If you want to laugh and have a great time, every second of this drama fits you perfectly.
