List of Hong Sisters Korean Drama


Are you big fans of Delightful Girl Choon Hyang, My Girl, You're Beautiful, Fantasy Couple, Hong Gil Dong, My Girlfriend is a Gumiho, Best Love / The Greatest Love, rom-com drama Big or the newest horror rom-com The Master's Sun?

If you do, you may be aware that the above dramas were written by duo writers-sisters, Hong Sisters. Hong Jung Eun and Hong Mi Ran are both in their 30s and they're famous for their comical-romantic hilarious entertaining drama in which most of the heroes in their dramas usually are the main lead actress. Not surprising, since they're both girls and I love girls power! Check out their most recent interview on dramabeans.

Here, you will find list and brief synopsis of Hong Sisters' Drama.

I first heard about Hong Sisters when I watched Sassy Girl, but I wasn't interested in their other K-Drama until last year's buzz of My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. I'm a big fan of Lee Seung Gi and Shin Min Ah so when I heard that they're the lead actor & actress for this drama, I started to find more about the Hong Sisters.

Best Love is now my number 1 favorite of Hong Sisters Drama. No2 is still Choon Hyang. And MGIAG is in the third position. I love MGIAG, but not because of its storyline, I like it because of the cute adorable Hoi Hoi Couple :-)

One thing I notice about Hong Sisters' dramas: they love to separate the two main characters! And usually, they will meet up couple months or couple years later with both of them unable to forget the love they have for each other.

Delightful Girl Choon Hyang OST

Who can forget the OST Song Emergency Room from Izzi? Every time there's a sad or separation scene, this song's played. I still remember the scene when Choon Hyang decided to leave Seoul and lived in a small country town in order to forget Mong Ryong!
