Delightful Girl Choon Hyang is the first Korean Series Romantic Comedy by the amazing team of The Hong Sisters. The plot is loosely based on a Korean Folk Tale in which the faithful wife is forced to remarry a corrupt bureaucrat.

The series contains examples of:

  • Badass Bureaucrat: Mong Ryong describes himself as a "Prosecutor Who Fights". He spin-kicks in a double-breasted suit, and who doesn't love that!
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Mong Ryong who, as a high schooler, never tells Choon Hyang that he loves her.
  • Derailing Love Interests: Hak Do -- Up to Eleven.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Mong Ryong, when Choon Hyang leaves him for Hak Do.
  • I Have You Now, My Pretty: Averted. Choon Hyang abandons Hak Do while waiting for the plane to Japan to take off, and goes into hiding in Korea.
  • Innocent Cohabitation: Even though they were technically married, Mong Ryong and Choon Hyang had separate rooms in his parent's house.
  • Lampshade Hanging: A Hong sisters staple. After the Time Skip, Mong Ryong comments to Choon Hyang, "Boy, time flew by as if you were in some TV drama."
  • Love Makes You Evil: Hak Do.
  • Mobstacle Course: Happens a couple of times.
  • Orbital Shot: Used several times in the series.
  • Real Men Hate Affection: Mong Ryong and Ji Hyuk bond with a back tap, instead of a hug.
  • Real Men Wear Pink: Throughout both time arcs, Mong Ryong almost always wears something pink. He's still manly.
  • Ridiculously Successful Future Self: Although the series doesn't specify the amount of time that passes during the Time Skip, Mong Ryong has metamorphosed from a high school delinquent into a District Attorney / Prosecutor in Seoul. Ji Hyuk, who lacked focus as a teen, is now a wildly successful actor / model. Choon Hyang is hiding in plain sight, creating distinct jewelry under her own name.
  • Romantic False Lead: Hong Chae Rin.
  • Roof Hopping: This happens during the 'saeguk' episode endings.
  • Shout-Out:
  • Split Screen: Used frequently to show simultaneous events by different people.
  • Terms of Endangerment: Hak Do becomes so obsessed with Choon Hyang that he threatens to destroy her true love unless she goes to him.
  • Time Skip: "A Few Years Later" in Episode 14 catches us up with the character's lives.
  • Wire Fu: During the 'saeguk' portions of the episodes.
  • Woman Scorned: Hong Chae Rin, Mong Ryong's previous girlfriend, who rejected him but did an about-face when he started dating Choon Hyang.
