K-Dramas where the Female Lead is Misunderstood

A compelling drama plot unfolds when the central female character is widely misunderstood, leading her to be ostracized and feeling isolated. This prevalent perception paints her as unpopular and alone. Yet, as the narrative advances, the male lead takes a genuine interest in her, peeling back the layers of her character. As he grows closer and uncovers her true self, the surrounding characters begin to see her in a new light, realizing she's far from the person they had previously judged her to be.

Let's check out some K-Dramas where the female character is misunderstood!

Beauty Inside

The female lead in this drama is an actress who changes bodies every month for about a week or so at a time. Although she does have some friends who know and understand her situation, the rest of the world sees her as a troublemaker who runs out on her commitments. Due to this condition, she cannot date or keep other friendships and also has to miss out on important events.

Starring: Seo Hyun-jin, Lee Min-ki, Lee Da-hee, and Ahn Jae-Hyun

Shadow Beauty

If you consider having dual identities to being misunderstood, this would also fit the list. In this one, the female lead is bullied at school but is actually an Instagram influencer in secret, as her online persona is entirely different than her in-real-life look. For a web drama, this has such beautiful cinematography and fantastic acting!

Starring: Shim Dal Gi and Choi Bo Min

Sassy Go Go

Set at the elite Sevit High School, a highly competitive school in Seoul; this drama has the female leads taking turns being hated and shunned by classmates due to their competitiveness of surviving the absurdities and hypocrisies of their education system.

Starring: Jung Eun-ji, Lee Won-keun, Cha Hak-yeon, Ji Soo, and Chae Soo-bin

When the Camellia Blooms

After moving to the town of Ongsan and opening a bar named Camellia, the female lead becomes the outcast in the neighborhood for being a single mom and owning a bar. She faces many challenges as she attempts to settle down in the small town with her child. 

Starring:  Gong Hyo-jin, Kang Ha-neul, and Kim Ji-seok

Mr. Queen

This is a body-switch drama, where a male was switched into a female body, making the male... actually the female lead. But both characters were wilfully misunderstood by almost everyone around them. Truly a fun rom-com drama to add to the list!

Starring: Shin Hye-sun and Kim Jung-hyun

Shining Inheritance

While on their flight back home from the United States, the male lead and female lead were on the same flight and accidentally had their luggage exchanged, leading to several misunderstandings between the two. Because of the misunderstandings, the male lead was always mistreating the female lead. 

Starring:  Han Hyo-joo, Lee Seung-gi, Bae Soo-bin, and Moon Chae-won

Jealousy Incarnate

The female lead gets majorly picked on at work in the opening episodes, but as the episodes continue on, she learns to get a good foothold at work later, which is very rewarding to see her survive.

Starring:  Gong Hyo-jin, Jo Jung-suk, Go Kyung-pyo, Lee Mi-sook, Park Ji-young, Lee Sung-jae, and Seo Ji-hye

Love All Play

This sports romance drama has a female lead who is shunned by the tennis industry due to a misunderstanding that happened years ago. In order to keep a secret, she swallows the pain of getting shunned and continues to try her best!

Starring: Park Ju-hyun, Chae Jong-hyeop, Park Ji-hyun, Kim Mu-jun, and Seo Ji-hye

It's Okay To Not Be Okay

Because of an undisclosed history, the female lead develops a character that makes her cold and misunderstood by the people around her and she is rumored to have an antisocial personality disorder. It wasn't until the male lead came into the picture as they both seek comfort from each other.

Starring: Kim Soo-hyun, Seo Yea-ji, Oh Jung-se, and Park Gyu-young

Angel's Last Mission

Although the female lead comes from a distinguished family, she suffered a devastating accident while performing that left her blind. Due to this incident, she becomes bitter and abusive towards her staff, including her loyal secretary and butler, her sly family, and everyone else.

Starring: Shin Hye-sun, Kim Myung-soo, Lee Dong-gun, Kim Bo-mi, Do Ji-won, and Kim In-kwon

Summer Strike

Similar to "When the Camellia Blooms," this drama also tells the story of the female lead who had just moved in into a small town and struggles to settle down due to the people in town outcasting her. 

Starring:  Kim Seol-hyun and Im Si-wan
