The Thursday Three: October 25th

Though angst and melodrama make up a good portion of the dramas broadcast every cycle, there is a lighter side; a side in which humour reigns supreme and the comedy ranges from black, to slapstick.

Given the sheer volume of angst on our screens at the moment – not to mention the impending doom and gloom of a few of the upcoming shows – I thought it might be a good idea to remind ourselves of that slightly fluffier (or perhaps just funnier) side of kdramas (because it’s not all cancer, blindness and faux-incest, I swear).

So, this week’s question is: in your opinion, what are the three funniest kdramas? (note: they don’t have to have been billed as comedies, necessarily, so long as you found them funny.)

Leave your comments below and, if you’d like to contact me, I’m on Twitter here and email here.

  1. Good question! Not sure if the picture fits the Thursdayquestion but here goes:

    1. Wild Romance-I mentally start giggling thinking about some of the really funny moments!
    2 History of a Salaryman-what can I say, thought it was super funny!
    3. Can Love Become Money-oh man, the dog! Enuf said!

    Honorable mention the funniest scene ever in a drama-Playful Kiss when the lead lady was working in the convenience store and did not want to be found out. THE HOODIE! Delivering the chicken! THE HOODIE! I looked everywhere for one!

  2. 1. The Greatest Love- Hands down. This got me crackin’ up like a mad woman. 😀

    2. Secret Garden- The entire body swapping debacle was just too hilariously executed. Well done by the leads. LOL.

    3. Unstoppable High Kick- Everyone seems to have perfect comedic timing here. This will always remain as a classic for me.

  3. 1. Secret Garden – omg I LOVE that show! It’s one of the funniest, and best executed dramas in k-land ever!
    2. Gentleman’s Dignity – a close second 🙂
    and my ultimate light favourite – A Playful Kiss. OH HA NI Rules! 🙂

  4. 1- The first 1/3 of Rooftop Prince. I gave up afterward, but those fish out of water episodes in the beginning were pure comedy gold!

    2- You’re beautiful: the pig chase!!! And those glow in the dark balls… And omg that fanfic scene, I’m giggling just by thinking about it xD

    3- Best Love tie with My Girl: As you can see I’m a Hong sisters fan. These 2 dramas were solid comedies with a good story. I’ve rewatched them at least once, and I still laughed the second time around

    Honorable mention: the first body swap arc in Secret Garden. I could rewatch that on repeat and I’d still pee my pants LOL

  5. 1. Wild Romance- I love baseball (I used to play during the summer months in league) and I love the leads in this one.

    2. A Gentleman’s Dignity- God I loved laughing and crying with this one.

    3. Smile, You- One of the first long-ish dramas I’ve seen but I laughed so much. It was so enjoyable =)

  6. 1. A Gentleman’s Dignity. I have seen 4 or 5 times and i still don’t get bored.

    2. You’re Beautiful!

    3. Goong. The princess is hilarious

  7. 1. A Gentleman’s Dignity – love the “boys”.

    2. Secret Garden – their swappings are too funny.

    3. You’re Beautiful – Go mi nam disguises as her brother

    runners up
    4. Playful Kiss
    5. Smile You

  8. Because I actually remembered to respond this time (and before the following Thursday, too!):

    1) Best Love – it makes me laugh like a lunatic. The chicken, the ‘I’m speeding by you!’, the… *dissolves into giggles*
    2) High Kick 3 – it was an incredibly heartwarming ‘sitcom’, it’s true, but there were episodes that had me in tears of laughter.
    3) Myung-wol the Spy – but this one has a qualification of: only the first 8 episodes, because those first 8 are incredibly funny. (after that… well, it’s best not to talk about it.)

    Honourable mentions:

    You’re Beautiful – the pig chase scene, the bidet, the character of Jeremy… awesome.
    Secret Garden – watching Hyun Bin adjust Ha Ji-won’s bra? Comedy gold.
    Who Are You – Yoon Kye-sang behaving like an ahjussi on crack. *stifles laughter*

    1. I’m totally late, but this kind I like!
      More then 3…
