Everyone has those days when a good weep is required. Some people believe that sobbing it out is a healthy method to release the stress that has built up inside.

Here are ten of the most popular Korean dramas.

1. “Hello, Mama” and “Bye, Mama”

“Hi Bye, Mama,” a tvN sitcom starring Kim Tae Hee, is about a lady named Cha Yu Ri. She dies in a horrible accident but returns as a ghost for 49 days due to her inability to leave her daughter behind. Yu Ri meets her spouse Jo Kwang Hwa (Lee Kyu Hyung), and she is able to tie up a lot of loose ends that she couldn’t finish before her untimely death. Anyone who reads this heartbreaking narrative will be in a tangle of emotions. You’ll want to ring up your close family members or even friends and tell them how much you love and adore them after seeing the series.

2. “May’s Youth”

Hwang Hee Tae (Lee Do Hyun), a lovely and intelligent medical student, falls in love with Kim Myung Hee (Go Min Si), a strong-willed and self-sufficient nurse.
