Whether you turn to your friends for advice all the time or are constantly wishing and hoping for that one true love, you’ll be able to walk away with some great life lessons when you watch it.
It is so relatable.
Even if you aren’t a KDrama fan, there are a lot of situations in K-Love for Filipinos to relate to in general. From people urging you to get married and have children to claiming you’re single because you’re still waiting for the right person, you’ll be able to see yourself in the characters in the show. In fact, no matter what you may be experiencing in life right now, you are sure to find a situation in K-Love that speaks to you.

K-Love will make KDrama lovers feel seen, heard, and understood. The characters speak our language. They know why we love KDramas and they use those formulas and anecdotes to create a show that perfectly fits into our love for that world.
