Love Alarm

This modern-day love story drama isn’t like anything you have seen before. Taking place in a super high-tech South Korea, the show follows an app that allows people to see if there are people who like them in their general vicinity. The story focuses on a girl that falls into a love triangle, something the app causes a lot of. It was interesting to see how this futuristic version of finding love pans and how it might affect relationships.

A Love So Beautiful

This Highschool drama follows the story of Shin Sol-i, a girl who is in love with her classmate and constantly makes it known that she likes him but he gives no response. That is until she stops trying and he suddenly realizes that he likes the attention she gave him and starts to pursue her.
