How do you know when love is true?

Love letters are one of the oldest ways to profess love to someone. The letter gives the writer so much power, but the authority immediately shifts to the recipient of the message. Their reply is everything! Asian dramas have the tendency to feel like a love letter being acted out in front of our eyes. The seven TV dramas on this list are love letters brought to life. 

1. Mischievous Kiss: Love in Tokyo

Kotoko's devotion to Naoki is like reading the sweetest love letter ever written. Many girls would give up on the seemingly cold-hearted and hateful young man, but Kotoko shows him so much love that even he can't deny her. Not to mention, she writes him an actual love letter at the beginning of the series. Check out Playful Kiss and It Started with a Kiss to enjoy other versions of the same sweet series.

2. Scarlet Heart

Ruo Xi's love story with the princes of the Qing Dynasty is one of the biggest tearjerkers in TV drama history! While she resides in their kingdom, she finds herself being separated from them due to tragic deaths and eventually time itself. Centuries tear her away from her soulmate on earth. The saddest love letter ever written. The Korean version, Scarlet Heart:Ryeo, is a highly recommended retelling of this classic.

3. Page Turner

Yoo Seul and Cha Sik's connection is so innocent and pure, it promises to be one of the greatest love stories ever. Blind Yoo Seul relies on Cha Sik heavily after he agrees to be her helper in school. Together, they discover their true talents and learn to trust one another completely. If a season two ever materializes, I'm sure these two will discover they are soulmates.

4. Temperature of Love

Hyun Soo and Jung Seon's love is like several letters over a period of time. Jung Seon has no problem with using PDA to express his emotions, while Hyun Soo shies away from admitting her feelings. From their first meeting, we know they are soulmates, but Hyun Soo has to learn to listen to her heart to make her happy ending a reality.

5. Tomorrow With You

So Joon's endearing love for his wife Ma Rin literally transcends time. His recreational time traveling turns into a mission to save his wife's life in the future. He does everything in his power to protect their marriage and lives. The whole series is filled with heart. Ma Rin's father is the biggest shocker, because his love proves to be even stronger than theirs. 


Tomorrow With You

6. Let's Fight Ghost

Bong Pal's tough mission to fight terrifying ghosts is made so much easier by the arrival of Hyun Ji. Even though the whole series is bone-chilling, the love he has for Hyun Ji seems to bring her back to life. He falls hard for her as a spirit and human. If that's not a soulmate, I don't know what is!

7. Andante

Shi Kyung and Bom's attraction to each other is obvious, but I think Andante is truly a love letter to life in general. The series is about enjoying the life you were given and making the most of it. Everyone in this story is engrossed in their love of life. 



Starring Kim Jong In (Kai) and Lee Ye Hyun
