Korean dramas are something that I really find entertaining. Some dramas are really fun to watch but there are dramas that definitely stand out. These are the dramas that stood out for me in 2016:
Moon Lovers: Scarlet Heart Ryeo
The drama starts when a woman, Go Ha-Jin played by IU, from the 21st century was transported back in time during the reign of King Taejo, the first king of Goryeo. She awakes in the body of Lady Hae Soo, a noblewoman living in that time. Realizing that there is no way to get back in her own time, Hae Soo tries to adjust to living in Goryeo not knowing that she and her knowledge of the future will play a big part in history.

Two Worlds is about Oh Yeon Joo, a cardiothoracic surgeon, and Kang Chul who is a main character of a popular webtoon. The conflict starts when Oh Yeon Joo gets dragged into the world of the webtoon and becomes an important character in the webtoon. Read my review here.

Descendants of the Sun tells the love story of Captain Yoo Shi Jin, a soldier, and Kang Mo Yeon, a doctor. Read my review here.
Weightlifting Fairy Kim Book Joo
Kim Book Joo(played by Lee Sung-Kyung) and Jung Joo Hyung(played by Nam Joo Hyuk) are classmates in elementary that meets once again in college after a long time of not seeing each other. Weightlifting Fairy Kim Book Joo is a story about friendship and people striving for their dreams.
Kim Shin (played by Gong Yoo), gifted with immortality as both a reward and punishment, has lived for more than 900 years as a Goblin. He may only die and be at peace in the hands of his fated bride- the only one capable of pulling out the sword that killed him a long time ago. After 900 years of searching for her, he finally found her.Read my review here.
Since Weightlifting Fairy and Goblin started airing on 2016, I included them here.
