My ID is Gangnam Beauty to Nevertheless: Best College Romance K-Dramas to Binge-Watch




While K-dramas excel in all genres, the college romance K-drama section has a faNBAse of its own. Be it their fresh storylines or the intense emotions depicting the complications of teenage love, Korean college romances will leave your heart craving for more.

Leading our list is the Song Kang-starrer Netflix drama Nevertheless (2021). One of the famous Korean college romance dramas, Nevertheless is adapted from the webtoon of the same name by artist Jung Seo.

Talking about his role Jae-on in drama, Song Kang said in a press conference (via K-media outlet K-popped), “When I first read the script, though it may seem like a normal college romance, I truly felt it was different. You still get the sweet romance that we typically expect, but also elements that set it apart and make it stand out. Jae-on doesn’t really say how he really feels so I thought it was kind of difficult to portray his emotions, as well as the lines. His anger, sadness and happiness aren’t shown through him so I put a lot of thought into it and talked to director Kim a lot to pull it off.”

Another popular college romance K-drama that will keep you glued to your seats is the 2018 cult classic, My ID is Gangnam Beauty. A Choi Sung-bum, the series stars Korean heartthrobs Cha Eun-woo and Im Soo-hyang in leading roles and enjoys a solid 9.4 rating on the American streaming platform Rakuten Viki.

Other best K-dramas that feature passionate college romance are Weightlifting Fairy Kim Bok-joo (2016), Cheese in the Trap (2016), Go Back Couple (2017) and At A Distance, Spring Is Green (2021).
