I’m looking for a drama in which a kid(s) plays a major role. It may be the thing that gets the main couple together (your typical i-dont-like-you-but-my-child-adores-you trope or something) or just like, the main leads work with kids, I don’t know, as doctors and what not.
What I really don’t want is the kid to be there just to increase drama and only appear for 1 minute per episode.
edit: I’m watching Blade man right now and I love the he-finds-out-he’s-a-father thing. I’m looking for something like this, maybe with more cute father-son interactions.
Autumn's Concerto- The kid is the lead's child together and he is so smart, this can be an spoiler because involves secret pregnancy. He'll win you over in 2 seconds, he's such a cutie pie. Once he's born he appears in every episode.
Blade Man- The child is the male lead's with another woman and the female lead takes care of him. Very touching father-son story.
Eternal Love, aka Ten Miles of Peach Blossoms- A-Li, the leads' son, doesn't come until later in the drama but, he steals the show. He's a cutie and so bright.
Shikaku Tantei Higurashi Tabito (both the drama and the film) has a little girl in it as one of the main roles (and let me tell you right now, the actress' acting is AMAZING) and she helps to bring Tabito and the main woman together as the woman is her teacher. There's also Yokai Ningen Bem (I think I spelt that right) with a little boy in it who must be around 6 years old and his acting is also ON POINT i mean seriously. He's part of the main 3 roles. Definitely recommend both dramas they're so good.
The Masked Lover - the FL's twin sister is in a coma, she takes over parenting her sister's young daughter, who has never met her father. The daughter thinks the ML is her father. The ML and FL grow closer while parenting.
1% of Something - the FL teaches young kids. She loves her job and the kids, and although the ML starts out quite rude, the FL first starts to see his kind side when he's good to various kids throughout the drama.
The Queen's Classroom (Korean version) has a wonderful ensemble of young actors in the 12-14 age range. Alone in Love and Fermentation Family (Kimchi Family) also feature children who give lovely performances in key roles.
