8.5 Secret (2013)
Both drama have a strong female character that endure hardships and trahisons before finding true love.
Recommended by ThorAegir
Plots are similar, the heroine tries to find his twisted sibling. They must contend with the intrigues of his jealous relatives, but despite everything finds true love. Even though Glass Slippers end tragically.

There are many similarities between the shows, ie:
-Grumpy male lead with a heart of gold hidden under protective layers of absolute douchiness
- Rich to poor female lead with a smile that's brighter than the sun
- The better guy overall second lead (at least before the male lead softens)
- and many more pre-2015 kdrama tropes.

Creating Destiny has the same feel as Shining Inheritance though Creating Destiny is a bit more light hearted; also there's a lot of the cast from Shining Inheritance in Creating Destiny! The two main leads also constantly bicker; there's also that 2nd male lead you always feel bad for.

Both dramas have the same producer and they have the same affect on you!! You will cry, laugh and hate with the characters! the story lines are a bit twisted in Shining Inheritance you'll love the grandma in LYATT you will hate her (maybe)

I know that those two dramas have very different plots but there's still something similar about them: the main female character because they both are nice girls interested just in work (they have many jobs) and not in romantic life (they don't really show their true feelings) also they both have a family member with disabilities (Eun Sang's mother/ Eun Sung's brother) and, what a coincidence, their names sound similar. ^^

7.7 Smile (2009)
Both are dramas about people who are honest and kind, who have to cope with hardships, that they don't deserve...and do it not changing, being always the same kind and friendly people, who care about their families and friends more then about themselves...

The plots aren't very similar, but when I think of She is Nineteen it reminds me of Shining Inheritance. Shining Inheritance is much better, but the feels are somewhat similar.

Both contain poor sweethearted girl and rich arrogant guy, who dont like each other at first and fight whenever they meet.
Also both deal with families past and struggles.
Recommended by Masquerade
Has the same theme of a feisty poor girl capturing the heart of a rich guy who fights with the girl constantly.
Recommended by ellen1997xx
Both about rich girls who unexpectedly lose everything
Recommended by miyuki993
Both dramas center around a kind hearted young lady desperately trying to survive on her own while caring for a young family member. Both end up homeless, but through unforeseen circumstances, end up being taken into a family of well-to-do restauranteurs. Both learn how to make food that touches the hearts of their customers.

8.4 49 Days (2011)
both have very good story lines and both the intensity and the suspense in the drama are very much alike. Also one of the characters, Bae Su Bin, plays in the dramas as well. He plays a different type of character other than the one in 49 Days; it's the complete opposite.
