I've never watched a Korean drama before, but I'd like to and I need you help to fall in love with them! Only problem is, they are so many I wouldn't know where to start... So if you had to recommend the best of best, what would that be? Lately, I feel like watching either 1- Super funny comedy, even over-the-top (like Hana Kimi) as long as it's really funny and not just stupid...something to make me laugh real hard! or 2- Something very very romantic, with the couple struggling to be together...it can have some pretty serious and tragic stuff as long as the ending's good! Also, if possible, I'd love a school setting! Sooo....all you Korean drama lovers, I'm in you hands! Thanks in advance!!

Well my first one was Dream High. It's funny, has a school setting and is about music. I fell in love. Reply 1997 is also funny and about school. Enjoy

49 Days perfectly fits your second criteria and it's a great drama :) Not a school setting though.

My first Kdrama was You're Beautiful ^^ Ikemen desu ne was adapted from it ;)
so maybe you could try this one too as first Kdrama

My first Korean Drama was "A Gentleman's Dignity", it might not make you laugh out loud like a crazy person, but it's pretty good, and it has all the romance... Go for it, it's awesome!

Reply 1997 - It's not super laugh out loud funny, but it's fun & some romance. Rooftop Prince - Funny and romantic but it does get unnecessarily melo and cliche towards the middle and end. Queen InHyun's Man - Romantic, as long as you don't mind parts that are historical. Playful Kiss - Most people probably won't agree, but it's some light hearted fun. This was my first K-drama.

I agree with Playful Kiss!

Thank you so much, all of you! I think I'll try with Reply 1997 for now, but all your other suggestions are next in line!! :D

You're Beautiful is what made me rediscover Asian Drama. As a mom, I was looking for something that I could watch with my kids aside from cartoons/anime without worrying about what they might see or hear and we tried this and voila it got us hooked.
