K-drama has a lot of clichés: Rich man with his cinderella, (required) hospital scene, mean in-laws, water splash on the face, and the most frequent out of all is the secret of the birth. Even in the drama "Father is Strange", the pandora's box was opened recently.
This cliche has been used so many times through out the history of numerous k-dramas and sometimes it's so predictable. Yet, it's hard to resist the dramatic suspense that comes from this secrecy and it sure increase more tension through out the show. Let's take a look at some of the dramas that used this ultimate cliché.
