When there is a talk about cute Korean dramas then only romantic comedy dramas come in my mind. That is actually one of the reasons why I like Korean dramas so much. My drama journey has been decorated with such beautiful Kdramas which were full of cute romance scenes.
Unexpected back hugs, first kisses, unexpected love and those caring moments by the male lead in a drama for their girlfriend are all the reasons the following dramas make there way to my top 10 cute and sweet Korean romantic comedy dramas list. These are purely my recommendations, so let’s start. ❤

This drama is the cutest drama I have ever seen. Love between two high school students who have been childhood friends is so cute that it makes you jealous of them. Both are each other’s first love and it almost feels like a baby love. Jung Joon-hyung becomes a very caring and loving boyfriend to Kim Bok Joo after she broke her heart because of her crush.

Through this process they both falls in love without knowing that one of them will die in 100 days. Dae-woong will die if Mi-ho becomes fully human, but Mi-ho will die if the bead isn’t returned.

CUTENESS LEVEL– 9/10
The drama is very romantic, with couple moments so sweet and lovely that you would have butterflies in your stomach. Also the drama will take you to the emotional roller coaster, just like every Kdrama does. I gave it more points as I was able to attach myself emotionally well with this drama, which was an amazing experience. Even today if I hear about the drama anywhere I can still feel the cuteness of the two. ❤
3. The Heirs

Again a high school drama and first love between a rich boy and a poor girl. The drama becomes super cute when Kim Tan keep teasing Cha Eun Sang, like sometimes untying her hair from back or hugging her while covering his jacket all over her. All these scenes have been especially put in this drama to make it cute. I gave it less points as many times it was more on the melodrama side.

It is actually a family sitcom comedy drama. But there was one couple that I absolutely adored from heart, Yoon Ji-seok and Park Ha Sun. Their love story was cute from the beginning to the end. In the starting of the drama the two didn’t get to connect with each other well and only remained friends. But Yoon Ji Seok had a secret crush on Park Ha Sun and he kept doing cute things for her without her knowing. (spoiler) Even later when they began their relationship Yoon Ji Seok proved to be the cutest boyfriend for Park Ha Sun who loved her a lot.
