Stress Free Rom-Coms

There are some days when I just want to pick up a drama to relax and watch stress-free. During most of those times, rom-coms had been the top pick for me. And instead of those dramas, where I have to really concentrate on the story and get all invested in, I prefer those that have a simple enough story to follow with lots of squeal-worthy scenes!

Most of these dramas I have watched while taking a break after watching serious/thriller/mystery dramas and before getting into another drama series. These are great for a feel-good and pick-me-up energy.

My Criteria:

  • Simple enough story to follow.
  • Some squeal-worthy and funny moments are a must-have.
  • Good chemistry between leads.
  • Plus points for being a short series.

NOTE: The story or characters may seem similar in some cases, but each one of them is a fun watch in their own way!

ALERT: If typical scenarios, some cringy moments or all romance dramas are not for you, progress with caution.
