    Do you think male characters actually cherish their love interest in majority of dramas?
    If you can suggest dramas that they do then I am interested.
    What was the word used in Legend of The Blue Sea...yeah Hot romance, hot romance are popular even if the relationship is founded on Stockholm's Syndrome

    Well, it´s said that some good actors have great Chemistry between eachother. My best recommendation is City Hall. I think its Korean.

    just depends on the chemistry between the leads. of course the dramas are written for the male character to care about the female lead. but sometimes the chemistry isn't good between the leads or one of the leads lacks in acting skills. some good examples of leads having great chemistry are:
    Healer
    History of the Salaryman
    Descendants of the Sun
    A Gentleman's Dignity

    i have more if needed.

    I will give you Descendants of the Sun but not the rest, I have seen Healer and a bit of A Gentleman's Dignity stopped at the pouring water on the lady scene

    Wasn't she just a ghost repellant tool for him? Hahaha

    I am asking about cherishing the female lead, to me most K dramas are like just hot and steamy, the main reason Park Shin Hye's actual kissing scene in Pinnochio caused a storm amongst netizens lol

    Not really. Korean drama tend to have more variety in couple type. My sassy girl ChunYang & jewel in the palace have nice romance

    Alone in Love (2006), is a great drama. It's kind of a slice of life type.

    * I cut the last part of the synopsis because it's spoily.

    I'd recommend Healer but if ur looking for a ML that cherished the FL, I'd give the gentleman's dignity a pass.

    Weightlifting fairy kim bok joo is beautiful in every way.
    Master's sun is good too.
    Strong woman do bong soon is good (I absolutely loved it) but for some people it was a hit or miss

    Your question is interesting because we tend to think of a drama's success in terms of how good the chemistry is between the OTP, how well the drama is executed, and whether it entertained us. Based on these criteria alone, a number would fit the bill.

    But to name a drama with a male character who cherishes his love interest? Off the bat, Love O2O, Queen In-Hyun's Man, and Strong Woman Do Bong Soon. :love:

    I agree that is why I prefer the friends to lovers trope or pseudo wincest . Thanks for the recommendations. I have seen Queen InHyun's Man.
    Held off on Love O2O since I prefer rich female leads(an endangered species) or female leads earning roughly the same income but I can't watch In Time With You anymore this year or I Will go mad lol

    1000x times I recommend Goblin, I Hear Your Voice and My Lovely Girl
    I also second Love O2O...although the female lead isn't rich...she isn't useless.

    I have seen I Hear Your Voice, hated how the second male lead got the girl for the most part of the series though but it did have the friends to lovers trope which helped

    The Greatest Love is kinda nice too...
    It's funny since the male lead is kind of Tsundere...
