K-dramas are one of the few television genres that truly capture the romanticism of teen romance. 

Many K-dramas skillfully blend relatability and nostalgia with the proper amount of dramatization and fantasy.

That is perhaps the reason why teen dramas like Love Alarm, Boys through Flowers, and Inheritors have through the years become obvious fan-favorites.

However, in recent years, Korean writers have created a wider range of romantic dramas that deviate from the standard scripts that K-drama enthusiasts are used to, including steamier rom-coms, unconventional love stories, workplace stories, slice-of-life stories, and realistic depictions of modern dating, particularly as people get older.

Here is a carefully picked selection of three well-liked romance K-dramas targeted at people in their 20s and older.

Chaebol heiress Young-seo (Seol In-a), who detests going on blind dates arranged by her father, persuades her friend Shin Ha-ri (played by Kim Se-jeong, one of South Korea's greatest multi-hyphenate artists) to go in her place. 

In an effort to scare off her date in order to help her friend, Ha-ri arrives without the knowledge that Kang Tae-moo (Ahn Hyo-seop), the CEO of the business where she works, is actually there. 

Tae-moo chooses to marry Ha-ri despite her bizarre behavior and sexual innuendos, if only to stop his grandfather from setting him up on more blind dates in the future. 

But when he realizes she isn't the actual Young-seo, Ha-ri fabricates a new persona to hide the truth.
