12. Crash Course In Romance

This drama could definitely be considered a wholesome and feel-good drama as it depicted the romance of an older pairing. Our leads were at differences due to a misunderstanding.

But through those differences, they connected and shared a strong chemistry. As the drama progressed, it did not seem like a typical youthful romance, which could be seen in other dramas. But also in a way, the feeling of attraction and love made them feel young-hearted again. 

We have a former athlete who now runs a side dish shop and a genius math instructor who is almost more like a celebrity. They'll fall in love despite the odds and concerns brought on by others. 

They'll navigate a tricky path but find their success. The drama also strongly focuses on family bonds and friendships, giving us multiple storylines to follow in each episode.
