Both dramas are similar for their cheating aspect, both FL's are not satisfied with the relationship they have with their husband, thus, looking or accidentally looked at another man that appreciates their value more as a woman. They did not find the "other" man, they just happened to be in the right situation at the right time, and the "other" man caught their attention.

The difference is that H has a sad ending, but OTWTTA has a happy ending, though not seen, just implied. And another thing, H is kinda steamy, but OTWTTA is more conservative, I don't know how they did it, but it came out nicely and sweet. H is also sweet and nice, but more sexy in my opinion.

In both dramas, both the FL's are shy, timid, and really patient with their current husband. Like whatever the interest of the husband has, whether cheating (OTWTTA) or silly birds (LAA), wife just goes along....till she meets the ML...who makes her feel comfortable...

Both ML's are mild mannered and understanding...maybe just trapped in the wrong marriage, because if not, they would not be looking elsewhere if they were happy with their own marriages...

Anyway, no need to sugarcoat it, it is cheating sure...but we have to understand the reasons behind it, not just judge the situation like all of us are perfect and never make mistakes...that is what the drama is about.

In the end, it is your choice to watch it or not, but if not, do not bash people who wants to watch these kind of dramas. After all, its just for entertainment. That is what we are all looking for. Cheers!

Both dramas are about married people who discover their soulmates while also being trapped in loveless or toxic marriages. Both dramas question the morality of adultery and what is considered "acceptable" when divorcing or separating have larger consequences for the leads and their families.

they leave you with the same feeling of a beautiful story between two people falling into a relationship they shouldn't, but ultimately do. Both dramas have characters with unresolved issues and a satisfying development.

Not the same plot. Not exactly the same theme. But both talk about marriage in mature tone. Both has beautiful dialogues, scenes, writing and directing. And as a plus, this has great sceneries to boast. Indeed a well-produced drama.

I think that when "On the Way to the Airport" was showing, its competitor drama was this, My Wife is having an affair this week...You know how korean dramas have a trend or a theme at a certain time (like time travel or robots or aliens)...
Anyway, they both have the same theme in a way,..Cheating or looking for other options of already married people...But it was kind of from a different angle for both dramas. In OTWTTA, it was from the angle of the "cheating" spouses itself. In MWIHAATW, it was from the angle of the husband who was faithful and cheated on and the wife that cheated's reasons...but a big point is, the endings were opposite of each other. I don't wanna spoil, but one of them, the original spouses forgave and got back, on the other drama, the "cheating" couple got together. At that time, I watched MWIHAATW, instead of OTWTTA, I mean, just got to pick one "cheating" drama at that time. I was still on my "cutesy" drama phase.

The plot of "On the Way..." reminded me a lot of Discovery of Romance. It was in a way, cheating but not cheating... There are both scenes on both dramas where you will feel the thrill of "getting caught". But its more felt on Discovery of Romance.

OTWTTA is similar to DOR in a sense that, they both have very confused female leads. Although the female lead in DOR is confused if she should choose an old love over the new, while in OTWTTA, the female lead is more into holding on to her old love while denying in her mind that this new male in her life is just a friend, but nevertheless, makes her feel better about herself.

Both dramas has a female lead thinking of keeping their current relationships, (husband or boyfriend) but another male came in (or came back) to shake their emotions, thus the drama. Plus in both dramas, you will be hooked by first episodes. They are fast paced and addicting.

The difference would be, in DOR, it is much more thrill of getting caught, but in OTWTTA, its much more calmer and comforting. Also, the husband in OTWTTA has the relationship broken already from the start of the series. While in DOR, the boyfriend is really playing it nice just to work out the relationship.

Similar forbidden love story with the charisma of the same lead actor. OSTs create similar feels as well

Similar overall feeling as the previous relationship is not doing well and the new love comes. And even though they know they should not do that kind of thing they still love each other and try to overcome the problems prepared to carry the consequences. Also that one of them has a child is similar, in OTWTTA there is marriage involved though.
