I haven't seen 1% of Anything, but as for the other 2, they are nothing like My GIrl, KSS, Goong etc. Those are all comedies, whereas Autumn Tale is a sad love story and Alone in Love is a more 'mature', serious love story, though it has funny moments, too.

1% of Anything has a lot of funny moments. The story starts very good. However it gets a little boring towards the end. To me it seems as if the series got extended from 16 to 26 episodes. The story is kind of repeating itself in the 2nd half and nothing exciting new is happening. I still have to watch the last 2 episodes, I guess I lost the interest to finish the drama. :|

I love the three series that you've mentioned. I have all of them in my set of collections. They have different storylines. Autumn Story is a tragic love story. It may have a sad ending but I just love how the storyline develops plus the fact that the chemistry of the lead stars blend so well.

% of something is a family drama with lots of romantic and funny scenes. It has over 20 episodes because of some side plots, but I enjoyed it very much.

Alone in Love, this series is not for everyone, because it's a story about a separated couple who remained in touch with each other due to common friends and relatives. They tried to look for another romance but they realized in the end that they still love each other.

If you're looking for more series to watch try to read an honest to goodness review, before acquiring one.

Go with 1%. It's more along the lines of the other K-dramas you've watched. I'm watching it right now and it's got me hooked so far. Autumn Story is sooooo slow, its unbearable. Alone in love seems like another slow, depressing one too.

I watched all the dramas that you have watched too. And enjoyed them all (KSS leading and Goong at the bottom). Of the 3 you listed and may watch, I like Autumn best while I abandoned 1% of Anything at ep_14. I d/l the ep but was so bored by then I couldn't go sit through another ep. It was that bad. Usually for series that I don't like very much, I would just jump to the last ep to see how it ends or skip a few ep in the middle. 1% is a very low budget series.

I recommend Damo. For romantic comedies, Hello My Teacher

As much as I hate slow and draggy dramas, Autumn Tale was actually very good, and never really felt slow. It's very emotionally powerful and has a great cast, so you can;t go wrong. Unless of course you're into comedies then perhaps you should give it a miss.

lol, me too, I stopped watching at episode 24, just can't bear to watch it anymore. 1% is the first drama that I didn't finish.

:scratch:
I've only seen 1% about anything out of the ones you listed because I usually go for comedies. .
it's alright. I found it a little on the boring side. For comedy, like lucypcng had mentioned, Hello My Teacher is a good one. If you enjoyed My Girl, try Delightful Girl Choon Hyang.

and out of my pure lazyness, try out this thread:

If you want to see more dramas along the lines of KSS and My Girl (comedies), good other ones are Sweet 18, Delightful Girl Choon-Hyang and Super Rookies.

since im bias when it comes to Son Yeh Jin, my vote goes to Alone In Love. there are really boring scenes but at least it is not that too serious so i can bear with it.

Well, that's the risk of asking what k-series is worth watching. As I've said earlier, go watch the three (3) and share with us your comments, more than you listening to our preferences.

I consider myself a faithful k-series viewer. No matter how draggy the drama is, so long as the storyline is good, I'll watch it to the end.

Hah ha! Same here. I d/l ep 14 but then refused to sit through another ep (yeah, that's what the ep is about - 90% sitting down, not much action). Before 14, I was already labouring, hoping things would get better. Then I decided I wasn't going to "sit through" 14 nor the last ep. Besides the low budget setting, I couldn't stand the girl. Before this series, the worst I did was jump to the last ep to see the ending or immediately deleted the series after I finished.. With this series, I was just glad to get off.

p/s I love, love, love the guy (KDW) in The Duelist or Temptation of Wolves (both movies), though.
