  • Itazura na Kiss: Love in Tokyo
    1. Itazura na Kiss: Love in Tokyo

    Japanese Drama - 2013, 16 episodes

    10

    Based on the famous manga. This version is a MUST watch if you want fun, fluff and, despite the usual Japanese playfulness, real deep love. Simply loved it and have re-watched it several times!

  • Itazura na Kiss: Love In Tokyo 2
    2. Itazura na Kiss: Love In Tokyo 2

    Japanese Drama - 2014, 16 episodes

    10

    Same as above - love this second season...

  • It Started with a Kiss
    3. It Started with a Kiss

    Taiwanese Drama - 2005, 20 episodes

    10

    Taiwanese version of Itazura Na Kiss. Again, this is a MUST see. Brilliant to see the difference in style between the Jdrama version and this one. I love both but this one has perhaps a little more "seriousness"/depth to it, in particular season 2.

  • They Kiss Again
    4. They Kiss Again

    Taiwanese Drama - 2007, 20 episodes

    10

    Same as above - season 2 is almost better (and those kisses!) Wish I could watch it again for the first time... Yes, it's one of those... :)

  • Kiss Me
    5. Kiss Me

    Thai Drama - 2015, 20 episodes

    9.0

    Thai version of Itazura Na Kiss. I found this version very enjoyable despite taking some liberties from the manga.  In my view, not quite as good as the above two versions but still really worth a watch!

  • Good Morning Call
    6. Good Morning Call

    Japanese Drama - 2016, 17 episodes

    10

    Loved this drama (also based on a Manga) for the pure silliness and fun of it all. I love the overacting in this one (and I don't always) but I think it actually added to the humour! plus, the main girl lead is just too cute.

  • Good Morning Call: Our Campus Days
    7. Good Morning Call: Our Campus Days

    Japanese Drama - 2017, 10 episodes

    8.0

    Second season of the above - I was slightly disappointed with this one as I had really high expectations, but still enjoyed it. And if you liked season 1, then it will be a pleasure to see all of your favourite characters again. 

  • Suki na Hito ga Iru Koto
    8. Suki na Hito ga Iru Koto

    Japanese Drama - 2016, 10 episodes

    10

    REALLY loved this one! Again, i think it's a MUST see if you want light, fluffy and nice food! The leads are both amazing and have great chemistry. Plus Kento is just.... well you know. =)

  • Minami-kun no Koibito: My Little Lover
    9. Minami-kun no Koibito: My Little Lover

    Japanese Drama - 2015, 10 episodes

    8.0

    Based on a manga. I found this story really really cute. Although not on the level of the ones above in my view, I would still recommend if you want some fantasy elements tangled into the romance and want to reconnect with your inner child!

  • Buzzer Beat
    10. Buzzer Beat

    Japanese Drama - 2009, 11 episodes

    10

    I personally really enjoyed this romance and highly recommend (in particular if you are a fan of Yamashita - simply WOW in this one). I found the chemistry between the leads really amazing (oh and that kiss scene and the music...). There is much more than the romance in this drama and I loved the overall message - love makes you strong (and that includes friendship/family as well as your significant other). 

  • 5-ji Kara 9-ji Made
    11. 5-ji Kara 9-ji Made

    Japanese Drama - 2015, 10 episodes

    10

    Again, based on a manga. Really enjoyed this one and I would also say it is a MUST see. Funny, even ridiculous in places (as only jdramas can pull off); a real slice of fun and happiness. love it. 

  • Paradise Kiss
    12. Paradise Kiss

    Japanese Movie - 2011

    8.0

    Love the manga... the adaptation was good and I really enjoyed watching it.

  • Zettai Kareshi
    13. Zettai Kareshi

    Japanese Drama - 2008, 11 episodes

    7.5
  • Sumika Sumire
    14. Sumika Sumire

    Japanese Drama - 2016, 8 episodes

    8.5

    I really loved the concept/idea/message behind this drama - love knows no age... It was very touching in a lighthearted sort of way. There is an element of supernatural in it as well. 

  • Nodame Cantabile
    15. Nodame Cantabile

    Japanese Drama - 2006, 11 episodes

    9.5

    Again, based on a manga. This is really a MUST see in my opinion. The romance element is of course present and intrinsic to the character development but what I found really amazing was the way the leads' emotions were expressed through the music they play/conduct... Just something else!

  • Nodame Cantabile: The Final Score - Part I
    16. Nodame Cantabile: The Final Score - Part I

    Japanese Movie - 2009

    9.5

    Same as above - if you liked the first one then why stop? :)

  • Nodame Cantabile Special
    17. Nodame Cantabile Special

    Japanese Special - 2008, 2 episodes

    8.0

    Ditto

  • Nodame Cantabile: The Final Score - Part II
    8.5

    Ditto

  • Bromance
    19. Bromance

    Taiwanese Drama - 2015, 18 episodes

    10

    This was a real gem for me... although the story is rather cringy sometimes, the chemistry between the main leads is just phenomenal (some memorable kisses). I loved the great work the actors did, particularly Baron Chen's portrayal of his internal conflict about falling in love with a man (or so he thinks =P). Wish I could watch it for the first time again!

  • Boys Over Flowers
    20. Boys Over Flowers

    Korean Drama - 2009, 25 episodes

    8.5

    Based on the manga Hana Yori Dango. I have watched most versions and the two I have listed here were my favourites. 

  • Meteor Garden
    21. Meteor Garden

    Chinese Drama - 2018, 50 episodes

    9.0

    Again, based on the manga Hana Yori Dango.  One simply has to enjoy seeing the main girl lead kick this arrogant brat in the face! Never ceases to make me laugh... I really enjoyed this cute faster paced version -  likely because it was fast paced there were never any draggy moments. 

  • Full House
    22. Full House

    Thai Drama - 2014, 20 episodes

    8.5

    Probably my favourite version of Full House. Love the chemistry of the main leads (despite not having much in terms of kisses...). 

  • Just You
    23. Just You

    Taiwanese Drama - 2013, 21 episodes

    8.5

    Taiwanese easy going fluff - This is a very enjoyable watch if you're looking for something to get your mind off things. Nice chemistry and Aaron Yan is always nice to look at :)

  • Fall in Love With Me
    24. Fall in Love With Me

    Taiwanese Drama - 2014, 20 episodes

    8.0

    Same as above!

  • Murphy's Law of Love
    25. Murphy's Law of Love

    Taiwanese Drama - 2015, 19 episodes

    7.5

    Same again... :P

  • You're My Destiny
    26. You're My Destiny

    Taiwanese Drama - 2008, 24 episodes

    7.5

    I really enjoyed this drama. It is not just all fluff and there are some more "emotional" parts to it but I liked the story line a lot and the chemistry was good. I haven't seen all other versions though so can't compare (yet)!

  • Devil Beside You
    27. Devil Beside You

    Taiwanese Drama - 2005, 20 episodes

    7.0

    Brother/sister (not really :P) love. worth a watch; it stayed on my mind for some reason...

  • Someone Like You
    28. Someone Like You

    Taiwanese Drama - 2015, 33 episodes

    8.5

    Really touching story.

    Fun and just adorable. 

  • The Heirs
    30. The Heirs

    Korean Drama - 2013, 20 episodes

    7.5

    Not anything crazy but still worth a watch in my opinion, cute and OMG Lee Min Ho ... 

  • Goong
    31. Goong

    Korean Drama - 2006, 24 episodes

    7.5

    Classic...

    33. You're Beautiful

    Korean Drama - 2009, 16 episodes

    8.0

    I surprisingly really enjoyed this version! 

  • Ashes of Love
    34. Ashes of Love

    Chinese Drama - 2018, 63 episodes

    8.0

    Long but worth it :) and... OMG Allen Deng... :)

  • Love in the Moonlight
    35. Love in the Moonlight

    Korean Drama - 2016, 18 episodes

    10

    Fluff, fluff, fluff overload! I loved the chemistry between the leads and the cuteness generally, and of course Park Bo Gum ... his looks and smiles make my heart melt... 

  • Moon Embracing the Sun
    36. Moon Embracing the Sun

    Korean Drama - 2012, 20 episodes

    9.5

    Great historical drama. It is not exactly "feel good" and there is a fair share of tragedy but it still left me with that feel good feeling at the end. 

  • Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People Prelude
    37. Rebel: Thief Who Stole the People Prelude

    Korean Special - 2017, 1 episode

    10

    Loved this version of Robin Hood! Not exactly a "feel good drama" but still leaves you in that state at the end.. don't hesitate, just watch it!

  • Splash Splash LOVE
    38. Splash Splash LOVE

    Korean Special - 2015, 2 episodes

    10

    A little gem! If you're looking for a short time travel/historical romance, go no further!

  • Love Sick: The Series
    39. Love Sick: The Series

    Thai Drama - 2014, 12 episodes

    10

    This BL drama is a MUST see for me. There may be a lot wrong with this drama - low budget, inexperienced actors (at the start at least), too many story lines and product placement - but there is something just sensational about it too. As I said on my profile, I think the world would be a better place if more people understood and felt the simple and pure love that Noh and Phun share for each other - OMG those looks.... priceless. Don't stop after the first couple of episodes, continue, it is SO worth it. 

  • Love Sick 2: The Series
    40. Love Sick 2: The Series

    Thai Drama - 2015, 36 episodes

    Same as above and more!

  • Together with Me
    41. Together with Me

    Thai Drama - 2017, 13 episodes

    10

    Great prequel to Bad Romance (BL). The chemistry between the two leads is phenomenal and omg they go for it! Max & Tul... :)

  • Make It Right: The Series
    42. Make It Right: The Series

    Thai Drama - 2016, 12 episodes

    Very cute BL series. Not Lovesick but it grew on me to the point that it is in my top BL dramas now. 

  • Make It Right 2: The Series
    43. Make It Right 2: The Series

    Thai Drama - 2017, 14 episodes

    9.0

    My favourite of the History BL series.

  • Love by Chance
    45. Love by Chance

    Thai Drama - 2018, 14 episodes

    8.5

    Really enjoyed this BL drama - although in my view the first half is the best. Perth and Saint have great chemistry (and I have a soft spot for Perth's eyes and smiles)... 

  • 2 Moons: The Series
    46. 2 Moons: The Series

    Thai Drama - 2017, 12 episodes

    7.0

    Very entertaining. Not the best BL couple or drama but definitely fun, fluff and feel good!

  • 2 Moons 2: The Series
    47. 2 Moons 2: The Series

    Thai Drama - 2019, 12 episodes

    7.5

    This is another version of the above. Same comments apply :) 

  • I Am Your King
    48. I Am Your King

    Thai Drama - 2017, 5 episodes

    7.0

    I surprisingly quite enjoyed this very low budget Thai drama. It reminded me of Make it Right. it's a bit all over the place but the friendships and main couple are fun and cute.

  • Hajimete Koi wo Shita Hi ni Yomu Hanashi
    49. Hajimete Koi wo Shita Hi ni Yomu Hanashi

    Japanese Drama - 2019, 10 episodes

    9.5

    Really recommend this drama about a teacher/student love. Not creepy in any way - fun, cute and just adorable....
