We are back with another Korean Drama recommendation. This time, the Kdrama of the day is A Love So Beautiful, adapted from the Chinese drama of the same name. With heart-fluttering romance, great chemistry, and beautiful OST, you will not regret watching the rom-com Kdrama. Starring Kim Yo Han of WEi and So Ju Yeon in the lead roles, A Love So Beautiful aired in late December 2020. The drama received mixed reviews while it was broadcasting. However, the only reason it was bombarded with negative reviews is due to its comparison with the original Chinese version.
Fortunately, the Kdrama fans loved the drama. Moreover, the cute and pure love story between the lead characters stole the hearts of many. The school-based puppy love and couple is pervasive to witness in Kdramas, but each one of them has its essence.

While the Kdrama version is slightly different than the Cdrama version, we end up loving it equally.
Hence, here is all you should know about the fluffy and super cute drama you can binge-watch this coming weekend.

A Love So Beautiful Kdrama Review and Plot
Just like we mentioned above, A Love So Beautiful has garnered mixed reviews from the public. The Kdrama lovers loved the drama. However, the ones who came to see it after watching the 2017 version found it boring. To be honest, watching the same storyline with a new cast can be tiresome.

The ending brought the lead couple together as they fought with all the odds and joined hands for a new life.
