As the popular saying goes, "the more you hate, the more you love," but the thing is, it’s really about caring for the person deep down despite denying your feelings for them. When you can no longer control your feelings, and your love has grown, it makes you frustrated that you can’t seem to understand your feelings and emotions.

If you love dramas like Suspicious Partner, Touch Your Heart, and Her Private Life, we got you covered. Here are some recent K-Dramas with an enemies-to-lovers trope to binge!

Our Beloved Summer

Have you ever had your heart broken by someone you loved so deeply? It hurts more when it’s your first love because it makes you do crazy things you thought you’d never do. Our Beloved Summer ignites the old flames of high school sweethearts who have a love-hate relationship with one another as they reunite for another documentary, but this time as adults. 

This drama is so relatable and realistic that it feels like you’re part of their story as you root for the leads, Choi Woo Shik and Kim Da Mi, to end up together. Stock up on some tissues in case you burst into tears.

Business Proposal

If you’re into a sweet office romance, the popular webtoon-turned-drama Business Proposal will make your heart flutter! Shin Ha Ri decided to switch places with her best friend on a blind date to drive away the potential suitor. However, things didn’t go as planned when this suitor proposed. Coincidentally, the man she encountered for this blind date was her CEO, Kang Tae Mu. Could things get even worse?


This drama may have used a common trope of a love contract, but trust me, they have a way of making cliche scenes new and humorous. Also, we can’t get enough of Kim Se Jong and Ahn Hyo Seop’s chemistry and ~kilig~ moments!

Sh**ting Stars

What happens when an A-list and a PR team leader from the same entertainment company form a connection but hate each other? This rom-com drama starring Lee Sung Kyung and Kim Young Dae will make you swoon over with their visuals! Their characters speak the lines the heart grows fonder when apart, representing the struggles of dating in the industry. Sadly, people tend to forget that celebrities are human too!

Once Upon A Small Town

Enjoyed Hometown Cha Cha Cha? Try this web drama series! Ahn Ja Young played by Red Velvet’s Joy will surely capture your attention with her alluring charm–she helps the town and assists them with whatever they need *just like Mr. Hong*. She gets entangled with two men–her childhood friend and her new best friend, that will change her perspective in life. It’s a healing coming-of-age drama that will make you appreciate the small things in life. 

Cheer Up

Strangers to enemies to lovers trope in a university setting? Sign me up! Cheer Up starring Han Ji Hyun, Kim Hyun Jin, and Bae In Hyuk gives us a glimpse of cheerleading competitions at Yonsei University and Korea University. At first, the female lead only focused on making money, but she got challenged by her passion for cheering to reach out for her dreams with the help of two men around her. And oh, you might also have *second-lead syndrome* along the way!
