Beautiful Gong Shim

  1. I know I’m late, but I just found out about Namkoong Min recently when I watched “The Girl Who Sees Smells” (a.k.a. Sensory Couple) and he attracted my attention, so I looked for another drama where he played a lead character. Then I found “Beautiful Gong Shim” and I LOVE it!! I love Ahn Dan Tae played by Namkoong Min 😻 And the drama is a real entertainment. I laughed so many times watching it.

    Now I just finished watching Namkoong Min’s other romcom, The Undateables. I also like it, but not as much as Beautiful Gong Shim.

    Do you have any recommendations for other funny, feel-good romcoms like that? Moreover the ones where there’s Namkoong Min? 🙂


    1. It’s not a romantic comedy but check out today’s post. Namgung Min is excellent once again in Awaken. Other great Namgung Min dramas I have seen and recommend are Chief Kim (can be considered a comedy); One Fine Day, Becoming a Billionaire, My Secret Hotel, and I Need Romance 3 (are all romances where he plays the second male lead); Distorted (is a mystery); Listen to My Heart (he plays the not so good guy); Remember (he plays a character much like his role in Sensory Couple); and Hot Stove League (a sports-related show).
      Now, if you’re looking for romantic comedies (whether Namgung Min is in them or not) I suggest Secret Garden, Fated to Love You, Protect the Boss, The Greatest Love, One More Happy Ending, Two Cops, and Revolutionary Love for starters. Let me know if I can help with anything else… that’s why Heart & Seoul exists. Happy watching!


      1. Hi Sarah! Thanks for your recommendations. Will check them out later. I’m currently watching Hot Stove League. I didn’t know I was going to be drawn into it but as I watched the 1st episode I couldn’t stop and I just finished episode 5 last night.


      2. I’m so glad you decided to give Hot Stove League a try. I thought it wouldn’t interest me because of the baseball theme (I’m not a fan of the sport) but I was so wrong. It’s awesome. Let me know what you think when you’ve finished it.


  2. I love Namkoong Min! He is such a versatile actor and SO good looking!:) Dan Tae ssi is one of my favorite roles he played. This drama shifted my top 10 list for sure.


    1. I agree. The man is an amazing actor and drop-dead gorgeous, to boot! I hope you’ll be able to view many of the other dramas he’s been in. It seems like just as he finishes one drama he immediately begins filming another. I’m so glad he’s a tireless actor, committed 100% to his craft.
