  •   :money_with_wings:Rich Male  VS Poor Female :money_with_wings:

I think this is the most utilized k-drama plot and am so fu**ing tired of it. In most cases the lead male is a JERK and at the same time rich  and the lead young lady is a poor  ANGEL and straight forward individual but there few cases where the male lead is the angel and the female lead being the jerk. Another thing that occur in this kind of plot is an underhanded and wicked mother or a father. In some cases it’s a grandparent.

Example Of Dramas with this plot are :

€ –  Cinderella and 4 Knights

€ –  Heirs

€ –  Oh My Venus

€ –  Shopping King Louie

€ –  Boys before Flower

€ –  Brilliant Legacy

€ –  Flower boy Ramyun shop

  • Supernatural

Most of the dramas with this plot are usually very lighthearted and simple. Sometimes they are a little complex

Examples of Drama with plot:

  • Gender Benders

Ma boy (boy dressing up as a girl)


  • Contract Marriage

In most of the dramas with this plot  the male lead is already in love with someone and the female lead becomes lonely and sad. Usually this plot is a comedy drama.

Some dramas with this plot are,

1% of something (am currently following this one)



I so much love this kind of plot infact I watch any Kdrama that is based on this kind of plot irrespective of the leads. These kind of dramas talk about how people face problems, not only health but also financial problems. These dramas also shows how fortunate we are to be healthy. Also they show how hard doctors work to protect patients.

Example of medical dramas:


Doctor Stranger

Beautiful mind

Good doctor

Romantic doctor kim
