Our Beloved Summer is *that* K-drama with characters that are so relatable, you can see yourself in them.

Pair that with an equally comforting OST and you have a remarkable show that will instantly become your fave.

3. Business Proposal

Who's in it: Ahn Hyo SeopKim Sejeong, Kim Min Kyu, Seol In Ah

Where you can watch it: Netflix

TBH, we miss K-dramas that are chock full of classic tropes and clichés. Good thing Business Proposal was released this year! *cues "Love Maybe" by MeloMance* Adapted from the webtoon of the same name, the rom-com starts with senior researcher Shin Ha Ri who disguised as her friend and went on a blind date with a guy. Little did she know that he's actually the CEO of her company! If that's not surprising for you, here's the catch: Her sajangnim has a ~proposal~ for her that might change her life.

Who's in it: Park Eun Bin, Kang Tae Oh, Kang Ki Young, Ha Yoon Kyung

Where you can watch it: Netflix

Extraordinary Attorney Woo is centered on Woo Young Woo, a rookie lawyer with Asperger's Syndrome who works at a top law firm. The K-drama was so popular that there was never a day when a video clip of "Woo to the Young to the Woo, Dong to the Geu to the Ra Mi!" was not part of our social media feed. We will always remember the legal series for delivering such insightful messages—from raising awareness on autism and shedding light on LGBT rights, among others.
