Top 10 Korean Romance Comedy Movies

I've always loved watching Romantic Comedies. There really is such a unique feeling when watching Romance movies with a hint of light-heartedness. I found this genre especially appealing when I started watching Korean Romance Comedies when I was younger. In my circle of (mostly girl) friends, I have found no one who disliked these kinds of movies even though they're sometimes "cliché." It just makes hopeless romantics like me feel all giddy inside. As I have watched quite a number of these movies, I could recommend some of my all time favorites. Most of these favorites are old ones or those "starting points" of those K-movie fanatics. I also chose these movies because they are those which have the elements of a Romantic Comedy. I will also recommend some of the good romance movies which are not much of a rom-com.

1. My Sassy Girl (2001)





















Based on an internet novel, this movie is popular not only amongst K-movie fanatics, but also those who enjoy watching Romance Comedies of any origin. This movie was re-made into a Hollywood movie of the same title, so some are probably familiar of it. For those who are not familiar, this movie is about a strong, bold woman who becomes the girlfriend of a timid guy. It is indeed touching, romantic, and at the same time hilarious as hell. This movie, being number one in my list, will not disappoint rom-com lovers.

2. Windstruck (2004)





















Windstruck is said to be the prequel of My Sassy Girl because of elements which connects it to the other movie. However, it's not completely its prequel and it stands on its own. It has its own charm as a movie. This is much more romantic than funny and what I love about this is how it touches your heart after watching. The movie's about destiny and how these two different people (a female cop and a male teacher) fell for each other.

3. Speedy Scandal (2008)





















One of my favorite movies of all time. It is placed third, however, because it's not much romance between a woman and a man as it is much more about family. What I love about this movie is its unique take on family relationships: a really young single dad who already has a grandson. Guaranteed to make you feel crying and laughing all throughout the movie.

4. Love, So Divine (2004)





















I watched this movie way back in high school and I still can't forget the feeling when I watched it. My heart felt like it was overwhelmed with emotions that I really can't forget it until today. This movie is about a seminarian who, with a course of events, falls in love with a girl just before he becomes a priest.

5. My Little Bride (2004)





















I'm not much a fan of boy meets girl love story compared to known-each-other-for-a-long-time love story, that's why I love this. Tackles the topic of arranged marriage in modern society, early marriage, and huge age gap in love. This movie is cute and light.

6. 200 Pounds of Beauty (2006)





















A movie that questions the standards of beauty. Quite touching and sure to provide a lesson to the viewers.

7. He was Cool (2004)



















First movie that I watched based on an internet novel by Guiyeoni. Most suckers for bad boys would love this movie I suppose. Innocent girl meets bad boy from other school.

8. 100 Days with Mr. Arrogant (2004)





















This movie is also based from a popular internet novel and of course, is popular among those who love "bad boy" type of guys. High school girl becomes errand girl for a mean college guy.

9. Baby and Me (2008)





















Who would be able to resist this adorable baby and handsome man? This movie full of cute and cuddly scenes is about a high school guy taking care of an abandoned baby which is said to be his own child.

10. Do re mi fa so la ti do (2008)





















Also from an internet novel by Guiyeoni, this movie is about a charming, yet quite arrogant guy who falls in love with a strong-willed girl. Quite serious for a high school movie yet touching.

Other Romance K-movies I recommend:

Jenny, Juno (2005)
The Classic (2003)
Hello School Girl (2008)

Recent Ones:

My Black Mini Dress / Little Black Dress (2011)
An Introduction to Architecture / Architecture 101 (2012)

Feel free to add to the list!

      I also did a short review on K-drama Big & an incomplete review about K-drama Queen Inhyeon's Man since I haven't finished watching the latter..

    1. Hi! I'm actually only familiar with asiatorrents.me but registration is invite only. I download Korean movies through torrent sites like piratebay or kickasstorrents, if they are available there. I also try to look up some direct download links through google if I'm desperate enough. Otherwise, I just stick to streaming sites like dramacrazy.

      In short, I don't know any specific website to download Korean movies from.. Sorry >.<" Do try those that I've mentioned though. ^^

    1. Hi! I have some romance comedy movies in mind although they didn't really satisfy me in some ways.. However, seeing that you're also a fan, might as well give it a try right? Okay here it goes..

      Chilling Romance / Spellbound (2011)
      Wonderful Radio / Love-on-Air (2012)

      I actually have a review for these two movies including My Tutor Friend II in this post:
      http://lifeadventuresofgenina.blogspot.ae/2013/02/recently-watched-korean-movies-romantic.html

      Lastly..

      You're My Pet (2011)

      I watched this movie but sadly got bored. I suppose that I liked the original version (Japanese drama) so much that I didn't put much effort into watching this movie. I hope you'll like it though.

      Really, I am not so familiar with recent movies since I haven't watched a lot of them but I hope you enjoy these three! ^^

    1. Have you tried The Classic? The thing is, some of these movies that I've listed tend to have a melodramatic theme.. A Millionaire's First Love, though it's quite old.. I'm more into rom-com so I don't have much for melodrama but I have two sort of action-drama film that I love, 71: Into the Fire and R2B: Return to Base. Hope you check those out. :)

    1. Thanks! Those websites are actually torrent sites, so you must have a torrent client (or the thing you download torrent files with) installed in your computer like µTorrent or bittorrent. After installing one of those, you can now download the files from either piratebay or kickass. Hope that helps!

    2. Yeah, thanks! Uhm can you give me KDramas that I'll watch? Any genre would do. I just finished watching Queen Inhyun's Man, The Princess' Man, Dream High, Reply 1997 & That Winter, The Wind Blows and Idk what's next.

      Delete
    3. Would you prefer newer ones? Some recent K-dramas that I really liked were Rooftop Prince, Gu Family Book, Sungkyunkwan Scandal, Moon Embracing the Sun, all of which are sort of "historical" except for Rooftop Prince which is a time travel kind. Some other 2012 dramas are Love Rain, The Innocent Man, etc. check out my reviews here: http://lifeadventuresofgenina.blogspot.com/2013/02/korean-dramas-2012.html
