Romance can refer to anything from discreet conversations to overt sex scenes when broadcast television charts and formalities aren’t an issue. However, the perfect love story is a fusion of all genres, just like real life; love can happen even in the most traumatic circumstances or overused settings. The Netflix romance series listed below are some of the best, and the variety is from absolute shady trash to real first-love feelings.
Is it too early to declare Gilmore Girls to be a classic? The story of mother and daughter Lorelai and best friends Rory Gilmore is one of stunning simplicity that has captured audiences’ attention for more than two decades. Stars Hollow is populated by individuals who, in spite of their differences, genuinely care about each other and their society as a whole.
The many cultures of the town provide a skewed perception of small-town life and are the series’ icing on the cake. Additionally, the show introduced a variety of men for both Lorelai and Rory, each of whom is so distinct and provides such a variety of benefits to their relationship issues that viewers have been divided over who they prefer among both of these women. Even in the sweet and dreamy town of Stars Hollow, romance is difficult, but the pain can be eased with your daily 10 cups of coffee.

Emily in Paris
When Emily Cooper (Lily Collins) realizes her life is in a rut, she seizes the chance to spend a year in France. As Emily tries to fit into the new world around her, Emily in Paris is a romanticized account of life in Paris from the perspective of an American.
Emily’s giggly and carefree personality is perfectly captured by Collins without coming across as nerdy, which also creates her poor decisions (like gradually courting her new friend’s boyfriend) even more impactful and annoying. Nothing in Emily’s life is overly serious, which gives the show a tonne of charisma and tends to make the messes Emily makes fun of, which is a rare occurrence on modern television. Additionally, is there a more romantic backdrop for Emily’s new life to take shape?

Crash Landing on You
Netflix has recently made significant investments in K-dramas, one of the most entertaining, sensual binges of 2020. Hijinks occur when a South Korean heiress unintentionally paraglides into North Korea and slams into a North Korean soldier; yes, that is the plot of this show (and yes, they fall in love). Several of the specifics about North Korean life are extremely accurate because a North Korean defector works on the writing staff, but overall this is a light entertainment, intimate affair about citizens from two different worlds.
