stand out. And from what i've seen this year, korean dramas have distanced themselves from the normal love square/ triangle that they have been associated with.
Of the 5 Korean Dramas i've posted here, I have to say that 49 days was one of the best so far. It doesn't just talk about relationship between people but between a person and himself/herself. Its such a heartwarming drama to watch because it offers the viewers a kind of perspective that of which if we are dead, would there be someone out there willing to "cry" for us?
Anyways, Here are Your Top 5 Korean Dramas 2011
