If you loved My Love from the Star, you’ll love My Amazing Boyfriend

These two shows are definitely spot on in terms of plot! My Amazing Boyfriend is also about an actress who meets a supernatural being! In this case though Xue Ling Qiao is a mutant instead of an alien. Still, this show has its own quirks like some cohabitation hijinks and a great enemies to lovers plot. People loved it so much, they made a second season with a totally different cast!

If you loved Fight for My Way, you’ll love Sweet Combat

Martial arts rom coms! Though totally different plots, we wanted to get this comparison for the martial arts angle, and the overall theme of following your dreams. In Sweet Combat, Fang Yu leaves her chaebol life to pursue boxing. This is where she meets Ming Tian – her opposite in every way. He comes from a poor family and though still starting out in the field, she sees potential in him. Bonus for EXO-Ls out there – Ming Tian is played by Lu Han!

If you loved Reply 1988, you’ll love Go Ahead

There’s not a lot of dramas that talk about family like Reply 1988, so we’re so glad to have found it in Go Ahead! Though these two shows are totally different, Go Ahead captures the same heartwarming vibe that we love so much about the Reply series. The show more or less is about found family, and facing the challenges of growing up. One of the most talked about dramas of 2020 – if you want to have a good tear-jerker with the mix of a good laugh, you wouldn’t want to miss this!
