Victoria (victoriamrak) | 7 comments Looking for something like an asian drama but as a book. Preferably without sex scenes. Anyone?

Karen | 260 comments I read I Believe in a Thing Called Love. It thought I would like it in theory but it wasn't my favorite in execution. The story is about a girl (her parents are Korean I believe) who loves Kdramas but has had no personal love life. She decides to make her life a Kdrama by following Kdrama "falling in love" tropes. It was ok. I'm pretty sure it was clean.

Not sure if you want Kdrama like books or books where the protagonist is Korean. If it's just the latter then To All the Boys I've Loved Before might work for you since the protagonist is half Korean, very innocent about her perceptions of love and falls into a "fake relationship" contract with a popular guy in her school. Clean, they never have sex, there are mentions of sex when it comes to other characters but never any details/descriptions.

I found this list you might find helpful:

But I don't know what's clean or not. I suggest going through the reviews and looking at the genres to figure it out. I'm going to look through it now myself :)


That first list has some really cute ones!

Here are a few more lists:


According to the reviews this book is like reading a kdrama but I'm not sure if it's clean: 10 Hours in Seoul

Her other book Where Seagulls Fly also sounds great.

Jennie Bennet has a bunch of cute sounding clean ones about Kpop stars like this one: #fangirlproblems: A Kpop Romance Book

This one sounds fun: K-Love

Karen | 260 comments Jenn P. Nguyen is a Vietnames writer and you can tell her writing is influenced by K-dramas. She even mentions it in her bio.

Her two stories feature an Asian female MC:

The Way to Game the Walk of Shame
Fake It Till You Break It

Her books are clean, they have kissing.
