Best Korean Drama I've Seen

"I've seen my fair share of Korean dramas by now. However, this show is honestly one of the most original concepts (most just follow predictable love triangle formulas) that I have seen in awhile and the execution is great.
The basic premise is that you are watching two main characters as they stumble through their love lives in the time leading up to when they meet and realize (though there is some doubt) that they are probably soulmates. The show also follows the lives of those around them and approches the idea of destiny and soulmates from all angles. I guess what was so original to me is that the characters don't meet right away (think of it as a Korean "How I Met Your Mother" -- where the woman's story is shown too). What helped with the execution is that all of the characters are really three-dimensional and the fact that is neither straight drama nor straight comedy. To top it off the soundtrack is amazing (which is an area a lot of Asian dramas are lacking in). If you're still not sure convinced, watch an episode online."
