There is something about autumn that brings with it feelings of longing and nostalgia. The gorgeous landscape views and foliage make us want a nice K-drama to cuddle up with. Check out these suggestions if you're looking for a series that makes you feel all of this about fall and more! Hope you fell as we did for these dramas!
The list is in no clear order!
1. “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes”
"The Smile Has Left Your Eyes" is certainly different from any K-drama you can watch this year, starring Seo In Guk as Kim Moo Young and Jung So Min as Yoo Jin Kang. Moo Young is a baggage-packed man who doesn't know the truth about what happened to his parents when he was a child. He meets and falls in love with Yoo Jin Kang, and she comes to fall in love with him too, although her initial impression of him is quite negative. Jin Kang is also embraced by her older brother (played by Park Sung Woong) as a child, playing in the intertwined web of mystery in their history.
Initially, the atmosphere of this particular series is somewhat enigmatic and different from other K-dramas. We are seeking, as viewers, to uncover the mystery behind Kim Moo Young and his tragic past. He falls in love with Jin Kang as he continues to be a mystery throughout the story and the whole vibe of their relationship perfectly fits the fall season. Moo Young's mystery also goes well with the cool weather, too. They want you to want one person to curl up next to their love story.
2. “Tomorrow with You”
By taking the subway, Yoo So Joon (Lee Je Hoon) journeys into the future. While in the future, he learns that Song Ma Rin (Shin Min Ah) is dying in a car crash, and tries to save her, which is how they end up meeting. Since travelling to the future again, he discovers that what is going to happen is much worse. He takes the initiative to get closer to Ma Rin to find out more and keep this from occurring, which is how he falls in love with her. He takes it upon himself at all costs to avoid her imminent death.
This one, in particular, has a different plot in that it includes time travel, another Lee Je Hoon drama for this list. In addition to seeing Shin Min Ah and Lee Je Hoon's sizzling chemistry, the best part is seeing the dropping fashion of both mega stars. Perhaps it's their flawless visuals, but their presence was so well suited to the fall weather, making the entire drama easily come together.
3. “Love Alarm”
A smartphone application in this drama has the potential to show if you like someone within 10 meters of you. It gives off an alarm when someone likes you but doesn't disclose the exact person. In a situation with two people, Kim Jo Jo (Kim So Hyun) gets caught and decides if downloading the app is a good idea or not.
It is a guaranteed win to see Kim So Hyun in any high school drama. She is able to play the teenager that is emotional, confused, and romantically involved so well. She's in the middle of an intense love triangle that often includes some technology in this specific love story. You sense the nostalgia and recall the memories of going to school and having to deal with all the drama that came with becoming a student with the backdrop of the fall season.
