k drams with age gap romance

Age is just a number when it comes to love. There have been and will continue to be stories with lead couples who have a significant age gap. But when it comes to steamy moments, Korean dramas are above par. Age-gap romances between the main characters are a big subplot in many K-dramas. Fans will observe that the age-gap genre typically involves an older female (noona) and a younger male starting a secret relationship that is rejected by society. These K-dramas are perhaps even more enticing to watch if you are bored of  other well-known Hollywood dramas. Take a look at the dramas mentioned below:-

1. Backstreet Rookie
