I’m choosing The Girl Who Sees Smells (Sensory Couple) as my underrated gem. This drama is based on a web-comic (which just about every K-drama is nowadays, hehe) which I haven’t seen, but tells a story of a girl who can visually see smells and track them. She meets a young rookie police officer who has no sense of touch or pain in his body. Together, they solve a major serial killer murder case that the heroine's past is tangled up in.

Though this drama’s story can be simplistic at times and there are missteps plotting wise, this is such a cute, funny and even at times intense drama. The hero and heroine are absolutely adorable and have so many great lighthearted and comedic moments. The villain is chilling and even intriguing as we try to figure out what drives this serial killer and what made him like he is. Though the show could’ve given us more answers at the end, it’s still an exciting and satisfying ending that brought the drama together.
