K-Dramas recommendation: mature romances, not silly and childish ones?

Hello there! :) So, I just finished re-watching Empress Ki. And I am CRAVING a good romantic k-drama that portrays a similar romance to that of Seung-Nyang and Wang Yu (NOT the Emperor). I don t want a winey, pouty and childish female lead. I don t want a baby-faced male lead. To me, the romance Seung-Nyang and... show more Hello there! :)

So, I just finished re-watching Empress Ki. And I am CRAVING a good romantic k-drama that portrays a similar romance to that of Seung-Nyang and Wang Yu (NOT the Emperor). I don t want a winey, pouty and childish female lead. I don t want a baby-faced male lead. To me, the romance Seung-Nyang and Wang Yu had in Empress Ki was amazing. Mature. Romantic. Not silly and to the point. None of them was fooling around and being stupidly shy and shocked because of a kiss. Wang Yu was such a down to earth man that was loyal, dignified and manly. Seung-Nyang quickly recognised and acknowledged her feelings for Wang Yu and didn t play the aloof, childish card (Until... well. Sigh.) I want to see a realistic romance, not adults behaving like 16 year old virgins. Is there anything out there that meet my requirements?

P.S if there is a little bit of skinship, more than the usual "lips touch. Girl is mysteriously paralysed. Eyes open wide OR closes eyes like if she s being punished or is about to be hit. Awkward static kiss", even better!

I have already seen and loved:

-A Korean Odyssey

-Mr Sunshine

-Descendants of the Sun

-Scarlet Heart Ryeo

-The Moon that Embraces the Sun

-A love to Kill

-The king s daughter: Su Baek Hyang

-Queen for 7 days

-Faith

-Goblin

-City Hunter

-King Two Hearts

-A Jewel in the Palace

Thank you so much!
