All right, so I haven't seen a single drama in years (since about 2017) and I miss watching them! I'd really like some recommendations for any good rom-coms I might have missed as well as any historical dramas!

Random order of dramas aired in 2017+ I'd recommend

Goodbye my princess 

Rise of phoenixes 

Put your head on my shoulder (romcom)

Ever Night (xianxia)

The Story of Ming Lan

Nirvana in Fire II (after you watch Nirvana in Fire, since it's not on your list)

The Dark Lord


The Crowned Clown  (historical, quite decent)

I would recommend:

  • Are You Human Too?
  • Eulachacha Waikiki
  • Her Private Life
  • My ID is Gangnam Beauty
  • The Secret Life of My Secretary
  • Thirty But Seventeen
  • Touch Your Heart
  • What's Wrong With Secretary Kim

Rom Coms from 2017 onward (Korean and Chinese)

  • Her Private life
  • A-teen
  • Well intended love
  • My ID is Gangnam beauty
  • Us and Them (movie)
  • What's Wrong with Secretary Kim
  • A love so beautiful
  • Lawless attorney
  • Because this is my first life
  • Fight for my way
  • Go back couple
  • Hit the top
  • I'm not a robot
  • Strong Woman Do Bong Soon
  • While you were sleeping

Historicals (Chinese)

  • Ashes of love
  • Eternal love
  • Siege in Fog

Others I'd recommend (Korean)

  • SKY castle
  • Age of youth 2 (if you watched and liked the first one)
  • Search: WWW
  • The Guest
  • Defendant
  • Chief Kim
  • My Mister
  • Something in the rain

PS the ones in bold would probably be some of my favourites

Oh, and if you didn't watch Goblin over 2016-17 and want to see what the hype is about, would also add it to my list of recommendations.

The number one historical drama I always recommend is The Story of Ming Lan. It's a slow burn, realistic historical with veteran actors in all of the roles. Only warning though is that it may ruin other dramas for you for a while lol, it's so damn good.

Other dramas I'd recommend that came out 2017 and after:

  • Goodbye My Princess
  • A Love So Beautiful
  • Go Back Couple
  • Le Coup de Foudre
  • My Huckleberry Friends
  • When We Were Young (2018)
  • All is Well
  • The Brightest Star in the Sky
  • Siege in Fog

Thank you for the recommendations!
