Hi, world! Daniela here. After taking a break from social media due to some personal issues, I’m back in full force and so ready to say good-bye to the year 2017. There’s no saying goodbye to the previous year without the obligatory year-end-review. Here is mine…. Drumroll… the five best Korean dramas of 2017.
This is a list based on my personal preferences, which are: good acting, fantasy, believable characters, likeable female characters that don’t make me want to pull out my hair, and, of course, PRETTY BOYS. No melodrama. No kimchi slaps. No unnecessary drama between the main couple simply to keep them apart for no reason at all. This is just the opinion of one K-drama fanatic. I’d love to hear back from you with your own! Do you agree with my list or would you make changes? Please let me know by leaving a comment ^.^
5) Hwarang. So many pretty boys. All the pretty boys.
4) Suspicious Partner. Ji Chang-wook. D’uh.
3) While You Were Sleeping. So good, just so, so good.
2) Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. Funny, cute, empowering and more!
1) Fight for my Way. THIS is how an everyday life drama should be like. Hands down the best drama of the year.

Where is Dokkaebi? I hear the crowds yell in anger. Yes, I watched it, but I don’t think it deserves to be in this list. The age difference (honestly? A perpetually 30-something year old with a teenager? Ew) made me so uncomfortable and the will-they/won’t-they of the main couple the Goblin and his “wife” was just annoying. Beautifully shot drama with lots of artistry, but I’m in NO RUSH to ever see it again.
Why no Weight Lifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo? I know this one was super popular, I just never got around to watching it. I will, eventually…
