Revenge Romance

kdramasinpajamas Mar 14, 2019

I rarely watch serious dramas, so when I do, it is usually because they are well written, acted, and production quality is good... I also have a soft spot for stories about people who fall in love with the person they are trying to ruin/use to get revenge. Some of these dramas maybe light on the Revenge or light on the Romance, but will have elements of both.

    Warning: Tragic Ending. I usually hate dramas with tragic endings, but this one has interesting characters and the actors did a wonderful job portraying them.

    Not exactly the usual revenge drama, but the lead male's character does have a habit of doing something terrible to anyone that he perceives as having wronged him... so I think it fits.

    NOT a romance. Not really sure it belongs on this list, in fact.  This is one of those dramas that is hard to categorize. It is Action/Political/Melodrama/Revenge. All the violence of a historical palace politics but set in modern day.
