-Both are very angst and tear-filled ROMANCE MELODRAMAS where leads know each other for years, and struggle to overcome obstacles in order to be together
-Both feature a class difference between leads
-Both have EXCELLENT CASTING & LEAD'S CHEMISTRY and they can act too. Casting for other characters is great too (Shout out to JO MIN SOO who plays male lead's mum in WISFC, AMAZING actress!!)
-Same structure: Both love stories start out in unsatisfying way/too fast/unbelievable. DON'T be discouraged by the starts of the loves, it gets REALLY shippable/more believable later on & they have EXCELLENT chemistry. Both have an ambiguous/mini ending type of episode some eps before ending that can be seen as ending if not satisfied with real ending (ep 11/16 of WISFC and ep 16/20 of LITFC)
-Both have strong female leads

-Both very underrated dramas
-Both are very sad/emotional, and thus only recommended to those who love sad stories (NOT for everybody!)

-Both have GREAT OSTs, that supports love story really well / makes you ship them more!

DIFFERENCES:
-WISFC is a korean drama, while LITFC is a chinese drama (which reminds me more of a kdrama! A cdrama for those who normally don't like cdrama. Also NO dubbing over their real voices in this cdrama!)

-Both Heart-breaking ROMANCE MELODRAMAS, with leads that are perfect together/GREAT CHEMISTRY & Cast /can act

-Both are great dramas, but ISILY is better (10/10!)

DIFFERENCES:
-REVENGE element in ISILY, no such in LITFC
- ISILY is a korean drama, while LITFC is a chinese drama (that reminds me more of a kdrama, a cdrama for those who don't like cdramas. Also NO dubbing over their real voices in this cdrama!)
