12 First Love K-Dramas To Make Your Hearts Flutter

From Baek Yi-Jin and Na Hee-do in 2022-Baeksang awardee 'Twenty-Five, Twenty-Five' to Park Bo-gum and Hyeri in 'Reply 1988'—we round up the perfect list of first love stories to make you swoon!

We all remember our first loves. Sometimes, we look back with fondness; at other times, with heartache. Or in some special lucky instances, we look at our first loves-turned-lifetime partners and feel that same fluttering and depth of affection as the first day we locked eyes with them.


Who doesn't love a good first love story? First loves make a popular theme in K-dramas for a reason and we just can't get enough of them. Filled with a special kind of innocence and nostalgia, and brimming with excitement and sweetness, they definitely leave lasting impressions... just as our own lives' first loves do!
