3. My ID is Gangnam Beauty
Kang Mirae has a beautiful name. If only she had a beautiful face or even an ordinary face. Maybe then she wouldn’t have to face the ire of the society and be called Kang Orc. She thought it would all be okay if she got plastic surgery, but now, people call her plastic monster, telling her that there are thousands of her walking on the streets of Gangnam.
It is a story of Kang Mirae gaining her self-esteem and helping the ‘nice’ girl Hyun Soo Ah recover from a toxic cycle.
The series focuses on Korea’s hypocrisy (or really the world) which shames a woman just based on her physical appearance where neither the beautiful nor the uglies are spared. Some are forced to become flowers, some end up having embittered personality and some burst out.
It earned both critical and commercial praise, becoming one of the highest-rated shows on cable TV just like Do Bong Soon.

4. Overprotected Kahoko
At twenty-one, most already facing life and understanding what Monica of F.R.I.E.N.D.S meant by, “it sucks, you’re going to love it.” Not Kahoko Nemoto, whose mother wakes her up, chooses her clothes, dresses her up and who falls asleep (irrespective of the place) as soon her bedtime arrives. According to her father, if Mother Nemoto is a meerkat, Kahoko is a frog.
Then she meets Hajime Mugino, a painter who tells her that her lifestyle (among other things like parking in no parking, rushing to catch the train, etc.) should be eradicated from the world. He leaves Kahoko wondering the whys, whats and hows.
As she begins to learn about the ins and outs of the world with Hajime Mugino (much to her mother’s annoyance), her father observes that this frog is starting to grow a tail.
P.S: Watch it not for the romance but Kahoko’s growth. That is where the charm lies.
5. Your Home is My Business
Watch the show. Go! No description will justify the Japanese drama (or well, like they say dorama)’s quickness starting from Sangenya’s obsession with selling houses, her methods to do so or just how much she scares the others in her office (especially Mika Shirasu).
It is about a real estate agent trying to sell houses to various people. In their stoic life, Machi Sangenya makes an appearance. She is obsessed with trading houses and taking credit for it, pro in both of it — much to the bewilderment of her co-workers.
To sell houses, she gets involved in her customer’s business. Not because she cares for the customer or because she’s nosy, just because she wants to sell a house.
To add to her nature, she lives in a house where thirteen people were murdered and are rumoured to be a haunted house.
There is no solid plot, character development or relationship development. It is a pure ten-episode drama, followed by a movie and another season.
Watch it for the humour, colourful characters and their antics.
P.S: Watch it for a career-oriented female who is not shamed for her obsession but instead looked up to.
