˚ ༘♡ ⋆。˚ Hi there! Everyone! ˚ ༘♡ ⋆。˚

・❥・  I am making a List of top tier Role reversal romance dramas aka Dominant Female lead x Submissive Male lead dramas・❥・


So what does Role Reversal (RR) even Mean?
✎Role Reversal dramas pertains to relationships where the
woman is dominant, strong, independent
the guy is cute, soft, weak clumsy, and submissive.
When bdsm is added into the picture, role reversal
romance automatically becomes Femdom, but
but bdsm doesn't always need to be a part of it.
For more info on RR check out :-
✎  r/RoleReversal
✎Masculine Girl, Feminine Guy

Tags and tropes that qualify to RR relationships :
╰┈➤ Dominant Female  x Submissive Male
╰┈➤ Rough Girl x Soft guy
╰┈➤ Female Boss x Male Employee
╰┈➤Strong Female lead x Weak Male lead
╰┈➤ Stoic FL x Puppy ML
╰┈➤ Warm man x Cold woman (MDL tag)
╰┈➤ Older Woman x Younger Man 
(Noona romance; Age gap is not a key point for RR couple, but since in Asian dramas, during Noona romance, the FL is often made to be more mature and composed and ML to be childish and reckless, thus it can be included as RR)

・❥・ Basically what you see in normal traditional role dramas, where the Guy is cool stoic and handles everything etc and the woman is cute and kawaii, its just flipped in RR romance.

✧༺♥༻∞ I have a list of RR dramas in MDL custom list : Role reversed dramas

💀 This list includes the curated best and most rr content I found on dramas, it includes the ones I have already watched/ or are extremely famous for being role reversed. if you know any drama which would fit the top tier list, let me know please.
