- Reply 1997/1994/1988 - find out who the female lead's future husband is! You might suffer from SLS or not, depending on who you're rooting for. - Angry Mom - though I wouldn't call the guy a second lead since it's not romance... more like "liking somebody you're not allowed to like". - Cheese in the Trap - one of the dramas that has made me suffer from a severe form of SLS. Don't watch it if you're weak but do still watch it for a rollercoaster of feelings! - Cinderella and the Four Knights - somewhat similar to "Boys Over Flowers" but at the same time not? It got lots of lovey-dovey moments at least (+SLS). I liked it but I think it depends on the person - my friend didn't like it at all but that must be because of how different our tastes are, e.g. her favorite drama is "Playful Kiss" which I hated from the Earth to the moon, haha. - Drinking Solo - just a little bit of SLS but kind of like the same kind as in "Angry Mom". - Love in the Moonlight - I liked with whom the female lead ended up but I still feel bitter just thinking about the second male lead... for some reason. - Perseverance, Goo Hae Ra - for some reason the SLS in this one confused me. However, it was a nice 12-episode-long drama!
Those are just the ones from my list that I clearly remember or felt "bitter" about. Also, it's weird that SLS is such a horrible thing but at the same time I enjoy dramas a little more if it makes me suffer. :)
I agree about the suffering with SLS! Also, I did not finish Cheese in the Trap but Seo Kang Joon is my leading man when it comes to SLS! lol
I loved him in What Happens to my family, in Cheese in the Trap (What I saw of it) and his character made me melt in Cunning Single Lady.
Also, about you and your friends differing in opinions about dramas, I totally understand that!! A few people I've talked to HATED some of my favorite dramas: ie: Emergency Couple, Angel Eyes, and Oh My Venus!
I'm going to check all of these out.
I have heard great things about hte Reply dramas, I've just never gotten around to watching them. I'll admit, many of the dramas I've seen are romcom's, but I want to delve deeper into it and not just play it safe on shows I know I'll like. My next one I think is going to be Two Weeks. I've heard good things about it...and it has Kang Ha-nuel who is Drama Bae :)
MINOR SPOILERS ********************** I think my first serious case of SLS was in School 2015. Yup, I seriously thought the writer-nim would make those two end up together (you know who I'm talking about), but boy, was I wrong. That was really depressing...rip.
I second Reply 1988. Ahhhh, I was a Jung Hwan-Duk Seon shipper from the start, but converted to team Taek in the middle. I still felt really bad (esp that confession scene!!) for Jung Hwan, but I was happy how the drama ended (cue all the angry team Jung Hwan fans). AHHHHHH Hyeri and Ryu Jun Yeol are officially dating!!!!! Couldn't be happier. :-))))
I also had serious SLS in Dream High. Throughout the drama, it was hinted who Hyemi would end up with, but I was still surprised. In my mind, I kept telling myself, "It could have gone either wayyyyy." Yeah, that was pretty depressing...
Moonlover: Scarlet Heart. Need I say more? This SLS was a bit deceiving, since one of the guys started off really nice, then turned evil (classic). I shipped the right ship, but that ship didn't actually sail.
