7 K-Drama Cliches you can never get over

AKP STAFF
K-Drama Scene

As a K-drama enthusiast, it's hard to resist the charm of certain clichéd scenes, no matter how often they appear across different series. These moments, whether they involve an unexpected romantic gesture or a dramatic turn of events, capture the essence of Korean drama storytelling. They have become staples that not only define the genre but also endear themselves to fans around the world. From the heart-fluttering first encounters to the tearful reconciliations under the rain, these scenes are crafted to tug at the heartstrings and evoke emotions. Here’s a celebration of seven such beloved clichés, each a testament to the formula that K-dramas have perfected over the years to keep viewers coming back for more.


1. The Drunk Accidental Kiss or Confession

Characters often take their drinking a bit too far, leading to unintended confessions or accidental kisses. The influence of alcohol, freeing characters from their usual inhibitions, commonly results in heartfelt admissions to their love interests.



2. The Shower Scene

It seems every male lead must have a contemplative shower scene, and admittedly, viewers aren't complaining.



3. The Makeover

No K-drama is complete without a transformative makeover scene, enhancing the allure of the female lead in the eyes of her suitor.



4. The “Ah-Ha” Moment

This pivotal moment captures the male lead's realization of his feelings, often followed by a comedic denial of his burgeoning love.



5. Falling Asleep on the Shoulder

While potentially awkward in reality, falling asleep on someone’s shoulder in dramas is portrayed as a moment of endearing intimacy.



6. Piggyback Rides

An essential feature of K-dramas, piggyback rides often come with heartfelt confessions, adding layers to character relationships.



7. The Wrist Grab

Often seen as a dramatic method to halt an argument, the iconic wrist grab is a recurring element that symbolizes a turning point in the relationship dynamics.

Forgot the biggest cliche- the ML and FL have some connection where they met when they were children (or even a past life lol)

I hate the wrist grabs in situations where it's being done against the character's will, which 99% of the time, that is usually the case. It's so uncomfortable to watch a female character basically trying to claw out of it and saying to let her go.
