The first rule of watching K-dramas: Never fall in love with the second lead.

As an avid watcher of K-dramas, Hana knows all the tropes to avoid when she finally lands a starring role in a buzzy new drama. And she can totally handle her fake co-star boyfriend who might be falling in love with her. After all, she promised the producers a contract romance, and that’s all they’re going to get from her.

But when showrunners bring on a new girl to challenge Hana’s role as main love interest—and worse, it’s someone Hana knows all too well—can  Hana fight for her position on the show while falling for her on-screen rival in real life?

-K-drama lovers will fall for all the fan-favorite tropes that make for a hit show.
-Romance is everywhere in this swoony, joy-filled novel, with fake dating, a secret relationship, and a classic love triangle!
-Visit South Korea as Hana takes readers through popular spots and hidden gems.


If you somehow didn’t know, I’m a huge sucker for kdramas (when am I getting a GL??) and I was hooked the minute I knew this was a sapphic rom com and also fake dating.

It was fun getting to see more about the idol life, behind the scenes of a kdrama and also about the queer community in South Korea. Hana and Minjee are adorable  together and I loved them.

The entire book is in Hana’s POV and I really wish we got some chapters from Minjee, especially because I wanted to know more about her.

While this is said to be rivals to lovers, it’s actually best friends to lovers. Also not technically a love triangle either. One thing I didn’t like is how the label lesbian is not used when the love interest is one. It stood out because other characters were fine saying bi and pan.

Overall it was a fun read and I hope Bryan gets a book too!! There are some references to I’ll Be the One, which I haven’t read yet but it’s on my tbr.
