Nowadays, many Korean dramas are having very confusing conclusions, often leaning towards open or sorrowful endings. Happy endings have become quite scarce. That happiness and fulfillment that comes with a Korean Drama when love finds its way to the altar cannot be defined. In these dramas, love faces numerous trials and tribulations, but ultimately, the characters persevere, resulting in a fairy-tale-like wedding. With that in mind, I’d like to recommend you some romance Kdramas that end with leads getting happily married.
