Written by the Hong Sisters, the rom-com series aired on SBS in late 2005 to early 2006, and was a hit among audiences for its easy-to-grasp storyline, not to mention the hilarious antics of each character. And did we mention the kilig? We think My Girl was one of the first dramas that made us believe in the leads' ~chemistry~.

Because of her father’s piles of debt, Yoo Rin met Seol Gong Chan by accident and had to pretend to be the long-lost granddaughter of his grandpa. And that’s when they became *instant* cousins, until they realized that there’s no pretending anymore when it comes to love. But then again they’re supposed to be related…
