By Ishani Sarkar | Published on
Have you been looking for K-Dramas that just give you a comforting, calm feeling inside? One that you can simply vibe with, regardless of your mood? Here are my picks for 5 K-Dramas that are all about the vibes.
"Pretty Sister Who Buys Me Food", starring Jung Hae-in and Son Ye-jin, boasts of the most gorgeous cinematography as well as the most soulful and ambient OST. The music pervades into the story and enriches its sentimental essence, making the drama unforgettable, to say the least. If you're looking for cozy, rainy day vibes, this drama is exactly what you need.
A sweet slow-burner, "Soundtrack #1" is also a drama that puts music in the forefront of romance. Our protagonists come to live together because of music and it is in the search for the perfect lyrics that their love materializes after years of yearning. Park Hyung-sik and Han So-hee bring out this realization so wonderfully that you will fall in love with their love.
If you like K-Dramas that unfold like novels, "Find Me in Your Memory" is the perfect show for you. Starring Moon Ga-young and Kim Dong-wook, this drama will remind you of the feeling of sipping hot chocolate in a quaint little coffee shop while snow falls gently outside. It is cold and harsh at times but also comforting and warm. You do not want to miss this one.
Can't get enough of music in K-Dramas? Fret not! "Do You Like Brahms" revolves around classical music students as they navigate their hopes, dreams and aspirations, all the while discovering their true feelings both in terms of music and romance. Starring Park Eun-bin and Kim Min-jae-I, this drama will envelop you in wholesomeness that you will not want to get out of.
A meditation on melancholy, grief, love and loss, "Lost" is a masterpiece of a drama that would be perfect for you if you enjoy mature, art-house style K-Dramas. This is not to say that it is not entertaining. In fact, it is immensely riveting and keeps you hooked until the very end but its depth is where its merit lies. This is the type of drama that changes you as a person and if that's the vibe you're looking for, "Lost" would be right up your alley.
