Rich Guy, Poor Girl dramas are a classic staple in Korean dramaland.  Some of the most popular and best dramas of all time are this genre – Boys Over Flowers, Fated to Love You, Secret Garden, Heirs, Kill Me Heal Me, Master’s Sun.. I could go on..

It’s such a popular genre that I make one of these videos practically every year – and you guys seem to enjoy it!  It’s still a bit early on in 2016 so there could be other dramas that come out that are not on this list, but so far there have been some strong kdramas that I think can and will stand the test that is the kdrama year and be memorable enough to say – yeah that was a good drama at the end of 2016.

I personally enjoyed Madame Antoine and Cheese in the Trap already (though the latter failed to keep me interested at the end) and am super excited to be starting The Entertainer (I love Ji Sung as an actor) and the other two look fabulous.  So let me know your thoughts and follow me on twitter for my updates and views on Entertainer and all my other drama obsessions.

    For me, it’s a toss-up between Greatest Love, Protect The Boss (hilarious, yet powerful stuff!), Heart To Heart, and Flower Boy Next Door. These four should be marked as “must-see” on any drama lover’s list, in my very bold opinion.

    And as an honorable mention, there’s the role-reversal drama Take Care Of The Young Lady, aka My Fair Lady, where a bratty heiress played by the ever-lovely Yoon Eun Hye squares off against a conman-turned-butler played by Yoon Sang Hyeon. While not a hit in Korea proper (the home audience wasn’t mentally prepared to see her shed her nice-girl image), this show is a pretty fair spin on the theme of The Taming Of The Shrew. Acting is on point for all the principal actors and for most of the supporting cast as well. Well worth any drama lover’s time.
