Today, we have compiled a list of the top lesbian Korean dramas and films that explore various aspects of female love. Since fewer people are willing to watch it in conservative nations, making LGBT+ movies or television shows is not an easy task. However, throughout time, several Korean films and dramas with LGTBQ+ plotlines have been produced.
Because of the publication of several webcomics and manhwas as well as the enthusiastic support of viewers worldwide, Boys Love, also known as Gay Romance, has experienced a meteoric rise in popularity in recent years. Nevertheless, BL continues to be more popular than Girls Love, often known as Lesbian Romance. However, many artworks feature lovely girls in love!
Even while many works do not focus mainly on lesbian romance, they stand out for having a strong undercurrent of female love. It increases the appeal of such shows.
Due to this, we seldom ever come across any LGTBQ+ dramas in popular media. But that does not imply that nothing exists! The realistic yet fluffy, fluffy plots of many web series and short films have won the hearts of their audience members.

Seohyun from Girls’ Generation appears in one of the highly regarded Korean lesbian dramas, “Drama Festa: Hello Dracula.” Seohyun’s portrayal of a lesbian heroine adds another charm to “Hello Dracula,” making it much more gratifying. The television show tells the story of how residents of Block Z learn to deal with issues in life that they would rather avoid. The first tale, a mother-daughter one, exemplifies the genuine suffering of the lesbian community. It is one of three pieces in the anthology. An Na, a young woman, resides with her mother Mi Young and even obediently complies with all of Mi Young’s wishes. She is burdened by a secret, however, she is unable to share it with anybody.
