1: Love RainIf this is how director Yoon Suk-ho and screenwriter Oh Soo-yun depict snow, then I'll probably have to watch Winter Sonata after all.
The legend has it that two people who see the Diamond Snow together will fall in love (and get married happily ever after). The question of fate is always a strong theme in KDrama: In Love Rain, however, the two children of an ill-fated couple find love because they do not believe in fate, nor in history repeating itself.
“I don’t believe in fate. Whether it’s Diamond Snow or Wet Fog, the reason why we were able to see it together was because we were together. I want to see a lot of things with you. Not because of fate, but because we look for each other.”

2: A Love to Kill
Anyways, this is about two lovers who cannot be together, but are finally united in death. Which may sound ok, but really isn't. The saddest part about the ending is how he tries to carry her to safety (he finds her half-frozen, because she cannot live without him, though she has promised), but has to stop because of the snow. So he just hugs her tightly, and they both die in the snow.
3: Queen of Reversals
4: Fermentation Family
This is the drama that constantly made me hungry and, to this day, makes me crave the kind of Korean food that they show. Which I will most likely never have. The setting of Kimchi (or Fermentation) Family was so stunningly beautiful that I yearned to go there, eat the food, and find peace. I don't remember when exactly winter comes in the drama, but the cold outside makes the warmth within so much more powerful. A beautiful drama.
