First and foremost - HAPPY THANKSGIVING EVERYONE!!
We all know that this year's Thanksgiving is very different from years prior and future years BUT WE ARE HERE TO HELP! One of the aspects we all love about Thanksgiving is family. Whether that is our blood - related family or our "Found Family" that we created, made up of friends and whom we might invite to a friendsgiving.
WELL ALL OF YOU GUYS ARE OUR FOUND FAMILY!
WE ARE SO GRATEFUL FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!
So to help, we created a list of 2020 dramas that we felt had the "found family" trope (that we loved) AND hopefully this list will keep you company during this year's festivities.
We will start out this list with the kdrama XX. WHO DIDN'T LOVE THIS DRAMA!? It was unique with its cinematography and was just a gem of a kdrama. The found family trope was strong with this one. You have friends turned enemies turned friends again. You have coworkers and roommates coming together. I always appreciate a good workplace drama that allows the characters who work together to eventually grow to support each other in life and become a Found Family by the end.
It wouldn't be a 2020 Found Family list WITHOUT mentioning Crash Landing on You. You have the "family" of our soldiers. You have these soldiers "adopting" Yoon Se Ri into their house and lives. Then she in turn adopts all of them when they all come to South Korea. Both leads don't have good relationships with their blood - related families SO they create a family out of this modge podge group of soldiers. WE LOVE OUR FOUND FAMILY MADE UP OF MODGE PODGE GROUP OF SOLDIERS!
Another kdrama with coworkers becoming a Found Family (maybe something more BUT SPOILERS). All 3 leads were adorable together and really came to care about each other. They each needed something added to their lives and found that thing in the pop up bar and each other. It was fun watching this kdrama, seeing them interact with each other and becoming this family unit we all wanted them to be.
I always love a good crime drama that has a mix of professions and people who make up a team. Team Bulldog is definitely an underrated (my opinion) crime Found Family drama. TEAMWORK MAKES THE DREAM WORK! In this case - teamwork makes coworkers become a FOUND FAMILY!
One of the most loved aspects of Its Okay to Not Be Okay is how, by the end of the drama, the main characters became a family. They worked together, grew together, pushed each other and came out at the other end stronger. We loved how the bonds between all these characters grew and changed through the drama. They learned through interacting with each other thus becoming a "Found Family" by the end.
The villagers had no choice but to become a Found Family. When you are thrown into an unknown world and inconceivable situation, OF COURSE, you are going to look for support and cling to that. This is exactly what the villagers did. They created this community where they thrived, learned to live with each other and comforted each other. Each villager had their own story which added to the beauty and full picture of the entire village in this drama.
LAST but certainly NOT LEAST - The upcoming kdrama The Uncanny Counter seems to have all the elements to become about Found Family drama.
A group of people coming together to work together ✔
All of them work together to fight evil✔
Working in the same workplace AKA noodle shop✔
A story built to uncover mysteries and then they solve them✔
WE CAN'T WAIT TO START THIS DRAMA IN THE COMING WEEK AND FIND A NEW FOUND FAMILY DRAMA TO ADD TO OUR LIST!!
If you had to make your own list - what would you add to this list?
Do you love the "Found Family" Trope as much as we do?
ONCE AGAIN - WE HOPE YOU HAVE A VERY HAPPY THANKSGIVING!!
